Honestly, if you miss this, you've not been to Hanoi at all ! The Old Quarters is where you'll find the Hanoi's Hearbeat. Wander along the clogged arterial streets of the place and you'll find that each street specialises in a special trade. Eg. There is a street that sells nothing but herbs, another sells clothes, etc. I did not shop much there but just bought few pcs of embroidery shoes bags as souvenier.
The Hanoi Opera House is a beautiful example of the French Colonial architecture here. Hanoi Opera House is painted in bright yellow color & is the largest theatre in Vietnam. Its construction started in 1901 and was completed in 1911. Unfortunately, to get inside you'll have to attend a performance, but that should be enjoyable as well.

One thing you will notice the very first day in Hanoi is people do not pay any attention to pedestrians. So, you have to follow some very simple rules if you even hope to cross a street. First, be aggressive. There is always someone on a motorcycle in front of you and you just have to get out in the street and stake your claim. Second, do not stop. This only confuses the drivers. They are quite adept at weaving around pedestrians if you keep walking at an even pace. I rarely saw any accidents so don’t sweat it too much.

Yeah... I'm leaving to Hanoi tomorrow. Kind of looking forward to this trip though it is not as good as other companies' incentive trip. But I believe we will gain a fantastic travelling experiences there. According to one of the travelling website, it said that anyone who has ever visited Hanoi will probably tell you that it may be the most beautiful city in all of Asia. Woo... really? I thought China should be the one?? Never mind, I will let you know when I'm back from there with the proof of pictures, k.
Hmm... but the saddest thing is I will not be able to see BB for a week. I guess I will miss his cheeky smile very much. Ya, I will also miss the calling of "Xiao Zu". Anyway, I promised BB that I will have a good trip there & share with him my experiences later.

Yesterday, I suffered from a terrible migraine from the morning till the night. After watching the 930pm drama with BB, I went up to have my shower. I tried to sleep but I could not. So I turned on my PC. Unluckily, the wireless was not setup by BB yet. Then I opened up an article that Cheryl forwarded to us for reading. While reading, I heard some noises that came up from the rooftop. It was liked someone was walking on it. My heart was pumping so fast. I was so scared. I rang BB up from upstairs & asked him to come up to company me. The sound getting nosier. BB turned up & I felt so mch secured & relief. BB suspected was a rat. So we ignored it & decided to watch a movie, The Contract by Morgan Freeman. As usual, I dozed off half way.
In the middle of the night, BB was awaken by Dino. He kept on barking. BB was peeping from the window but nothing was there. He decided to go out to check out the truth. I was so worried & peeped from the window too. My mind started to wonder & imagine that someone wants to break into the house. Will they hurt BB? So worried & so scared at that time.
BB came up about 15 mins later. So glad to see BB again. He told me that he suspected it was an animal. Everything seems quiet after that. BB teased me "Tidur Babi"! Haha.....BB & I sleep soundly again!

Following are the sms that I had with BB after the end of Chelsea game with Arsenal on Sunday:
Stephanie: BB, why is Jose behaved so emotional huh?
Tak Feng: I was also surprised he is so emotional. Well, if Chelsea sacked him,
I'll be surprised. He done well.
Stephanie: Ya lor. He did well. The real world is so cruel!
Tak Feng: Well, that's what people said. I don't believe that. I believe in our
I somehow can't figure out his meaning! Maybe I'll ask BB this Fri & then I will post it to the blog later, k.
In my opinion, life is nothing less than brutally cruel for every life form, including both plants and animals. Any animal that canot fend for itself for food, defence or shelter will either die or be eaten. A plant that grows in an uninviting place with too much competition or too little protection or nutrition will die. Nature shows no mercy.
I'd think that the life forms that can adapt best to changing conditions will survive. In addition to the many other skills needed to survive, successful animals and plants need to be able to adapt.
One of the biggest expectations we always make about life is that it is predictable. There is nothing predictable, fair or even safe about life. At any time. Self deception or believing someone that tells us that life will be good for us will keep us from facing the truth about ourselves.
Those who are prepared to cope with life's circumstances, especially as they change, will survive and thrive best. As life seems to be changing more rapidly than previously in history, we may want to consider teaching coping skills in order to better prepared ourselves for the trials and tribulations we will face later.

BB & I went JJ shopping just now. He is searching for his right pair of slippers. We see few places but nothing has caught his eyes. When he finally saw the one that he wants, they have no available size. What a bad luck, BB.

Do u think you can love unconditionally?
There is a Taiwan Talk Show shown in Astro channel 27 every 7:30pm. The person will assign the host to bring up his / her relationship issues to 3 judges. In the same time, the host will also invite the ppl involved to the show so that everything can be talked / confessed openly to everyone. At the end of the show, the judges will provide their suggestion to the couple & then they have to decide whether to reunion or to break up.
This evening, there is this man who would want to try to patch up with his gf. They've been together for 2.5 years. However, he claimed that his so called gf has a "very weird" characters. She speaks with one kind of slang, with certain posture, especially her "buddha hand" & also with one or two English words in between the conversation. She also likes to carry a dog doll with her, anytime & anywhere. I noticed that whenever she converses in Mandarin, she is very gentle but when she speaks Hokkien, she is so rough.
The man could not tolerate with her behaviour anymore. His friends are laughing at him & family members cannot get along with her. She has already spoilt by her parents since young. They provide her with everthing she asked for & eventually she has became too spendthrift.
In later part, she reviewed that she has suffered from meningitis at the age of 12. This incident has caused her weird characters. Anyway, the man wanted to ask for a break-up. Suddenly, she screamed & shouted hysterically. The man called her retarded & crazy woman. He even asked her mum to send her home. Her mum felt so painful to see her daughter suffering. The host trying to resolve the issue by asking both parties to stay on & discuss. With the tears & the power of love, the man has confessed his love to her once again!
There is no perfect love in the real life. We must learn to accept the imperfectness of our partner. Then, we will learn & work hand-in-hand for a better future.
Woo.... After resting for a 5 days (wkend, labour day & wesak), we gotta starts work tomorrow. Tired? Exiciting? It is for me to know & for u to find out then.
Well, I went Pasar Malam with BB this evening. Initially I saw one beggar who is immobile & begging the passenger for money. Then continuously I'm seeing 2, 3, 4 & 5 beggars in pasar malam... I started to notice this particular beggar who seems to be a healthy one. Then I start to wonder if they are actually being controlled by a group of ppl. This is further confirmed by BB that those beggars are taken care by some party. They provide them food and bring them to pasar malam to beg. At the end of the day, the money they get will be taken by those party...very pity them! I felt so uneasy to see them being controlled & suffered from those ppl. Why are ppl behaving so mean & can't they earn a living with their own effort & their own hands pls?

I'm disappointed with the result this morning! Chelsea has lost 4-1 to Liverpool for the penalty shoot-out. It was a tough game from the start & Liverpool played a very defensive game. Anyway, it has already over. I believe the Blues can still make their victory next year. Hopefully, the rest of the players, like Lampard & Terry & of course the manager, Jose Mourinho will still remain in the club by that time.
