Nipa palm

140km on my bike on Sunday just for this 😛 New record for me! Yay!


One of my most favourite fruits! It’s served fresh with coconut water and ice. 50 cent for 1 cup. Super cheap!

On the ferry
On the ferry to cross the river

Then 40km more on open road to get to Can Gio beach. Such a nightmare for new cyclist like me!


I can’t say I like the road 😐 11143495_970903346294376_7157787872350578777_o

How a pro dealed with dirt 😀


I hate all the bridges, no matter it’s high or not!


Anyway, it’s not the destination, it’s the journey…


The beach is not nice and very crowded. Seafood is okay and not cheap. No picture for the beach!


Yes. Happiness comes from tiny packages.

It’s a beautiful Caturday. I’m just too lazy to bake today. Just wanna enjoy the beauty of my little garden and feel so blessed 🙂

All is taken care by my awesome parents.

and enjoy my childhood snack.

Baby Amberella fruits
Baby Ambarella fruits

This is one of my most favorite snacks ever and ever! One day if you have a lot of baby ambarella or baby mango that they are super sour and you don’t know what you should do with them, well, maybe you want to consider to do this kind of summer snack.

You need

  • 1 kg baby ambarella or baby mango, peeled and halved if needed
  • 200 gr salt
  • 200 gr sugar
  • Few red peppers (optional)


  • Wash baby fruits over lots of water and 2 gr kali alum
  • In a huge jar, place baby fruits inside with water and salt for an hour
  • Wash the fruits again and again 3-4 times
  • In a huge jar, place all fruits inside again with sugar and few sliced red peppers (if you like spicy) for at least 4 hours

They should be kept in the fridge up to a week. My mouth is watering now…
