We found out recently that due to some travel delays on our way to Hanoi, our favorite low-cost carrier has credited us with a 400 ringgit voucher (a little more than $130 US dollars).  That might not sound like much, but when some flights on Air Asia are as low as 10 ringgit, all of Southeast Asia becomes our oyster.


Beautiful, delicious baguettes in Vietnam

I had such a magical time in Vietnam a couple of weeks ago that I’m still thinking about the food I ate — and didn’t get to eat.


A lady, a basket, a burner, and voila! A restaurant

But, at the same time, there are many more places we have yet to visit, and many more foods we have yet to eat.  It’s a good dilemma to have…

…so in the meantime, I’ll just keep daydreaming about Vietnam.
