Vietnam Food Keychain & Magnet

Souvenir favorit saya di Hoi An ini adalah gantungan kunci serta magnet kulkas berbentuk makanan ini.
Desainnya menarik, saat saya post fotonya ada beberapa teman yang tidak sadar kalau ini hanya souvenir, dan menanyakan di mana tempat yang menjual makanan tersebut :D

This is one of the iconic souvenir in Hoi An, key chain and magnet that's designed as a Vietnamese traditional food. It's really cute an interesting, one of my friend even mistook it for a real cuisine and asked where to get that food :D

Keamanan di sini cukup baik, berhubung banyaknya turis asing di sini, keamanan kelihatannya cukup diperhatikan. Tidak rawan copet maupun kejahatan lain, karena di sini relatif lengang, tidak seperti di Ho Chi Minh yang penuh sesak dengan manusia.
Namun para turis tetap perlu berhati-hati, terutama saat berbelanja, bukan terhadap preman atau garong, tapi para penjual barang.
Jika kita tidak awas, setelah memberikan uang, mereka biasanya cuek dan tidak memberi kembalian. Salah satu teman saya sempat lima menit beranjak dari kios penjual, lalu ingat kembaliannya belum diberikan. Saat kembali ke tempat penjualnya dan meminta kembalian, si penjual menyangkal dan tidak mengakui kalau belum memberi kembalian.
Saya juga sempat mengalami kejadian serupa saat membeli lilin lampion untuk dilarung di sungai.


 This market is quite safe, you can stroll along leisurely. There's plenty of tourist around, and the place is not overly packed. So we feel quite secure, not having to be wary of pickpockets and such.
But there's another thing you should be aware of, small change thievery.
The sellers here have a habbit of not giving the change when you didn't ask for it. For example, my friend bought some stuffs for 150,000 VND, giving 200,000. The seller didn't give any change and just hands over the goods. 5 minutes later, my friend remembered that he hadn't got his change, and went back to ask for it. The seller would just shrug off and saying they'd given the change. So be sure to check if you've got your change before leaving their stall.

Taxi - Karaoke?

Alkisah di Hoi An ini sebetulnya banyak sekali Taxi beroperasi, entah kenapa, bisa ketemu dengan satu orang yang sama, Mr Tahn, dari pagi hingga malam. Pertama kali naik taxinya sih biasa saja, cuek.. 5 menit kemudian dia memainkan beberapa lagu oldies yang kebetulan favorit si koko Surabaya yang duduk di depan, teman seperjalanan saya.
Jadilah siang itu sesi karaoke dadakan antara si pengemudi taxi Vietnam dan tamunya di kursi depan. Yang di kursi belakang cuman ketawa ketiwi. Peristiwa sama terulang malam harinya, dengan suasana yang lebih meriah lagi... memang jodoh.


There's a funny coincidence where we keep meeting the same taxi driver that doubles as a singing companion to my friend. Earlier on the day, we had the pleasure to have Mr Tahn as our taxi driver. When everybody else just sits quietly due to language barrier, this guy just blares out oldies songs.
My friend and him ends up having a private karaoke sessions during that half hour trip, and the rest of us just giggles along the way. Little did we know, we'll get the same experience in the evening.
