Merry Christmas

300 San Jose (bowling alley)

I have passed by this bowling alley numerous times when we go to Oakridge Mall. It is located just behind Oakridge Mall if you're on Blossom Hill Rd. Last week me and a couple of friends decided to go there on a night out. I made a reservation for eight but turned out only six of us could make it.

We got there early around six. There were not too many lanes occupied. There was a kids birthday party a couple of lanes down from us. I think the place in total have around sixty lanes.

Hai San Tuoi Song - Nha Trang, Vietnam

We had a late lunch early dinner sort of on our second day. We picked a restaurant on Hung Vuong Street. The young guy who was at the restaurant was trying to sell us his lobster while we were checking out the menu.

We finally decided to go in and order. We ordered grilled squid salt and chilli, tamarind prawn, fried noodle with seafood. As we sat down we watched the guy earlier busying himself running around outside to start the grill. He also took off a moment later on his motorbike to go get something (our squid, maybe?)

Com Ngon Lanh - Nha Trang, Vietnam

Our first meal in Nha Trang the day we arrived. Based on the conversation with the front desk girl who told us that most restaurants were located on Nguyen Thien Thuat Road which was the street next to our hotel. We wondered passed a few restaurants and finally decided on this based on the look from outside and the menu posted outside the restaurant. Beside we were already hungry then :)

Meals on Vietnam Airlines

For this Asia trip this time we had a chance to try Vietnam Airlines for the local flights. With the price of tickets that we paid I was surprised that they even provide meals. It was simple meals but hey it's still not bad. I guess having been on most airlines in US that didn't provide meals, even the most simple meal was appreciated.

Jovie Coffee & Pho- Campbell

I just happened to browse Yelp today and found out this place in Campbell. But as we were driving there I realized that we've been to that area before when we went to Le Quy. It's sharing the same shopping mall at the corner of San Tomas Aquino and Campbell Ave.

We got there at an awkward time. It was not exactly dinner time yet but we were hungry since we didn't have proper lunch. The restaurant was empty except for a table towards the back that seemed to be occupied by a few people. I was going to just go get myself a table when one those people on the table stood up to greet us.
