Once a year, go some place you’ve never been before. ~ Dalai Lama
It was supposed to be our first time free traveling to Bangkok, but, as the date that we were supposed to travel there, a series of bombing were happening at Bangkok. And it was targeted at tourist famous areas. And it so happened that the hotel that we were supposed to stay was only 30-minutes away from the bombing area. So, the company cancelled the trip and replaced with free travel to Vietnam.
And, if you have been following me, this was my second time visiting Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I was still pregnant with Inas Lutfiyah when I first stepped my foot in Ho Chi Minh City.
Alhamdulillah, syukur…:) A first-timer of traveling for free in PB Angels. Good job, Kak Mira Misbah. She managed to qualify herself for this free trip, only a week before the package was closed. Walaupun orangnya sangat comel, tapi semangatnya memang membara tinggi.
3 dara pingitan. Ahaks! Last time, masa Mama pergi Vietnam, Mama mengandungkan Inas Lutfiyah. This second time pergi Vietnam, my business partner, Ismalina pula mengandungkan anak kedua. History was repeating itself, I guess.
Our flight was scheduled untuk berlepas ke Vietnam pada jam 5.50 petang, dengan menaiki Malaysia Airlines.
Alhamdulillah, syukur…:) Dapat juga melancong free dengan Ayah. Dengan ekonomi sekarang ini, kalau sahaja-sahaja untuk travel, memang agak parah, kerana our currency sedang jatuh. So, kalau hendak ke luar negara, memanglah mahal. So, bila dapat peluang travel for free, ditanggung sepenuhnya dari flights, makan-minum, hotel and transportation, memang bersyukur sangat-sangat. So, memang Mama ambil peluang untuk ber honeymoon dengan Ayah. AT least, dapat jimat duit travel.
And hello Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam!
Since our traveling time pun sudah agak lewat, so after arriving in Ho Chi Minh, we all menaiki bas untuk ke our first destination of the day, which was having dinner in one of our halal restaurants. Mama memang suka travel in this business, kerana, company akan sentiasa arrange for fine dinings in halal restaurants. So, memang tidak risau sangat kalau bab-bab makan ketika travel. Memang tidak sempat hendak rasa lapar.
Ketika we all sampai, ada pelayan yang sedang menunggu we all untuk serve our drinks. While we were having our drinks, pembantu from the hotel sibuk angkat luggage bags we all. Haha! One of the best part of traveling in this business. Memang dilayan bagaikan anak raja.
Alhamdulillah, our first day went very well. Nothing much happened in the first day, since the first day was our traveling day.
Stay tuned for our second day in Ho Chi Minh City!
