I had a working weekend, making RTR icing with Doan and some xmas mince tarts with Luyen, but my pals David and Amanda were on the prowl round the old quarter and took this cool shot of a very inventive warning sign! Hole in road!!

I've been trying to remember to take photos of my meals for you. This is com rang or fried rice. It came with a bowl of dressed cucumber, which I may add is nothing like the bitter, watery, nasty stuff I won't eat at home. It's crunchy with a firmer texture a delicate refreshing flavour and with none of the bitterness at all. The soup was a delicate chicken broth loaded with fresh coriander and some slivers of tomato. I love my com rang here, it comes topped with very fine shredded dried pork or beef - yummy and there are jars of pickled raw garlic and chilli on the tables too so you can add even more flavour if you need to. The cost? 20,000vd ...about $1.
|No one cares about the chipped china when the food tastes so good!|

|Part vulture perhaps?|
|Even the Vietnamese were taking photos as they came...|
|and came! The third one back had his nose sticking out of the mouth hole of his beard...he looked like a yeti!|
|Sorry about the angle I was sticking my camera through wire mesh.|
|A beautiful crane's behind!|
|Happy in his work.|
The other thing we've been doing for Xmas are making one or two gingerbread beach babes... 83 today and another 80 tomorrow...I'll be going into ginger overload soon!
|Don't forget your sunnies....|
|Does it remind you of Bondi?|
