After exactly three months living in Vietnam, I am now quite certain that I will be living here for at least three years as I originally planned before moving to another country to continue my journey. My sole intention in setting this up is to share with you some of the images which basically reflect the lives and the actual environments where I capture as I pass through on my journey. Along with a few lines of reflections to go with the photos and sharing with you my emotion at the time when I was there, hopefully it eventually will help me to put a story together in the future.

As I mentioned before from the previous thread, I sincerely hope that you will find the captured images enjoyable. However, I will not respond to your comments or questions going forward, because it will help me to ignore the comments all together. Well, enjoy the photos as well as the songs if you will. If not, you should know not to click on this thread again.

Having seen so many Chinatowns in other parts of the world in my lifetime, I must say that this one has to be the most chaotic and dirtiest one of all so far. Chợ Lớn, as I imagined in my mind over the years as long as I can remember, is supposedly a place with numerous commercial signs written in Chinese from the vendors all over streets and perhaps even in many residential allies as well, but that wasn't the case as I went on a whole day to search for the particular signs of so-called Chợ Lớn .

Unlike the usual Chinatowns or Vietnamese-Towns as we have seen in other countries, this one hardly even comes close to compare with those recently developed elsewhere in other parts of the world, and this is how such a place ended up after so many generations of these people lived and died here. These are also the people who usually being called as those who "ăn cháo đá bát". There are always both sides of every story, but not both sides are equally considered worth mentioning. As for those who are still here and continue to raise their families, there is nothing more important to them than being able to continue to live, one way or another.

Nowadays I no longer have any problem crossing the streets in Vietnam. After my recent experience in Saigon with the chaotic streets there for a whole week, going across multiple streets in front of Chợ Biến Thành still seemed relatively easy to me, even with cars and motorbikes from different directions were seemingly coming all together at once. I can tell that I am officially a local resident here.

(Chợ Biến Thành - it seems less cars in the photo after I already crossed one big street)

Thank you for posting these pix! It brings back a lot of childhood memory for me As a kid, I wandered tirelessly around the streets in the photo, especially đường Phạm Đình Hổ. I recognize one other street in the shots but could not recall its name :( Chợ Lớn dorm looks unchanged after so many years. I remember there were like thousand of chim én built its nets at this dorm, and they fly in huge flock every time I went by that area. I heard that there wasn't one left today; people probably ate them all :(

I know a lot of people would love to be in your shoes and do the thing that you do over there right now. I am no different, but I just don't have the courage nor the commitment to take on that journey. Enjoy your time and have a great new year!

Apparently the monsoon season didn't call for much of rains this year in Vietnam, and the end of a raining season is already approaching. These days there are only the flurries of rain floating in the air as they usually linger throughout the whole day. On my way to grocery shopping this morning suddenly a long white dress amid in the falling flurries caught my attention. As always with my pocket camera handy, I hurried on my footsteps to get closer as I determined not to lose sight of it, and then instantly a couple quick snaps without even trying to get set on my footsteps. Unfortunately, somehow she noticed my presence from the corner of her eyes and turned her head around looking at me. As always, politely I have to ask for permission to keep the photos. She likes the photos and allowed me to keep them.

Perhaps I should have asked for her name and why wandering around in a white dress on such flurry-rains, but I didn’t. Sometimes there are things better to keep it the way as it is. Instead, I asked if I may take one more shot from behind as she walks away, but she just smiled and didn't say anything. We just exchanged a smile and appreciated such friendly gesture from a total stranger.

The Good Old Days In Vietnam: These were the images someone took the time to capture them for whatever sentiment he/she felt at those moments. Decades later here I am also in search of those similar moments, for the past, the present and the future.

Many people still would like to see the good old days to somehow return as they occasionally reminiscing and romanticizing about it, but there are also those who don't wish to live those days ever again. For this particular young girl, without even a shirt on her back, I wonder what would she say about the good old days if she somehow managed to stay alive. As for those young girls who now enjoy a life at distant places, there must be plenty of shirts to wear everyday, but we probably wouldn't notice what have changed in them from those expensive clothing.

Personally, I am still quite uncertain about what the good old days really were, but I do know that they were only actually good for some people, which is basically somewhat like the way it works out for some people today, the good new days.

What those eyes tell about the good old days?

你我写下爱的神话
Anh và em viết xuống mối tình huyền thọai

Pretty Hội An is indeed pretty. If you haven't been there before, you ought find the time to stop by whenever you happen to be in Vietnam. Although the town has been changing so rapidly over the years and now has been known as one of the most favorite tourist destinations for white folks, the local people here didn't seem to change as much.

After short trip we arrived in town with the intention to spend a whole day to enjoy the local foods and taking photos, but this time I traveled with a company for a change. The old town seems to go well with a pretty but relatively conservative gal in the photo.

Btw, the gal is my oldest niece who is still single and not seeing anyone at the moment. Like many other average gals in Vietnam who always have hopes for a better future at a different world, she also hopes that someday she may find her suitable mate to start a new life elsewhere. It will be such a fate they are willing to count on for a man so far away, and only hopes that happiness will not be too big of a price.

I recognize the old lady in Hoi An. We always give her a little "boat fee" but never ride the boat whenever I'm in Hoi An. She's very old yet still has to work to earns her keeps.

Thanks for sharing your photos
