Explore Norhern Vietnam - Day 1 In Ninh Bình

After over eight months, I was finally able to reunite with my boyfriend 😁  We didn't get to travel during his last visit because I'd just moved into my flat, so things were a bit hectic then. Thus, this time, we tried to fit in a travel plan to the North.

Chosen destination: Ninh Bình 💚

VGang in Phuket: Honourable Mentions

Welcome to the finale of Vegan Food Adventure in Phuket! The finale features honourable vegan eats that did not make it the top roundup in my last Phuketpost hehe. It would have been an overwhelming post if I had squeezed all the food in one post, so this seems more reasonable.

Check out previous episodes here: Episode 1 and Episode 2.

VGang ate a lot of food during Phuket Veg Fest. I took a new writing approach to my last post about my top picks from the trip first (idea credit: Nick 💁 ). This one, I dedicate this post to the rest of the good stuff 😁

Vegan Gang Taking Over Phuket Vegetarian Festival

And we're back for another episode of Vegan Food Adventure In Phuket!

This year, Phuket Vegetarian Festival went on from the 20th to 28th of October. I arrived on the 22nd - an interesting arrival 😅 , which I talked about in my last post here.

First Phuket post was mainly storytelling. This post right here, however, is all about food-telling 😋

Gearing Up For Phuket Vegetarian Festival!

Hello there!

I just got back from a brilliant trip to Phuket attending Phuket Vegetarian Festival for the first time! It was heaven, absolute heaven! Well, the weather was hot, which is never my favourite, but hey, I'm cool as long as the food is good, and boy, was it!

I'm splitting this Phuket trip into a couple of posts.

I had quite an experience travelling to Phuket for the first time. This post is about this experience - not much food going on, but it was quite an interesting journey, so read on if you're curious. If not, wait for Part 2 where I will focus on my vegan food adventure more 😊

Vegan in Ho Chi Minh City: Halo

If you've read my previous post, then you know that I am now an intern, and more specifically, for an online magazine. I said it was meh. And nope, I ain't here to retract this statement. I'm here to say that I'm thankful for this internship. Now, I'm thankful not for the experience, but the food I've found to feed my constantly-hungry self while at work.

Yes, I do have different priority than most, y'all. Food is always either first or second place on my daily agenda. I'm not cut out for adult-ing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

Veggie lunch delivery Pt. 2 shall continue at later date. This post is my review for a cheap vegan eatery I found nearby my workplace.

Vegan in Ho Chi Minh City: Veg Lunch Delivery Pt. 1

Long time no blog, I try to at least have one post up every month, so here I am in August.

I started interning for an online magazine right now - don't ask, it's meh. Anyway, working means I need to think about lunch. I can cook and bring my own lunch, but who am I kidding? I'm lazy AF. Not to mention cooking for my own lonesome self isn't worth the effort - yes, I seriously lack motivation. I mean I do cook once in awhile, but not all the time.

Thus since bringing my own lunch is often out of the equation, I have found some places that deliver veggie food. Time to share!

View from my flat. Pretty neat, eh?

Vegan in Ho Chi Minh City: Loving Hut Hoa Đăng

Loving Hut (LH) is vegans' most reliable eatery while travelling. They have a branch or two in most cities around the world. I once wrote about the branch in Hanoi (read here). Today, the spotlight shines on the one in Saigon.


*NOTE* Those little steamed rice cakes wrapped in leaves in the photo above are there for you to eat, but you are charged for how many you actually consume. Just a little heads-up for you guys.

[CLOSED] Vegan in Ho Chi Minh City: Đóa Sen Vàng Didn't Deliver This Time

*UPDATE (13/07/2017): Đóa Sen Vàng branch in District 10 is now CLOSED!*

If you follow my blog, Đóa Sen Vàng probably sounds familiar because I wrote about it already (here). However, this post is different from the last as this one is no longer of me raving about how great the food at this restaurant is. Not all bad, but I just think a short review is necessary.

Vegan in Ho Chi Minh City: Happy Birthday? No Such Thing

Ah, yes, the 14th of February is Valentine's Day. It's also my birthday. I don't get excited about birthdays all that much, especially my own 😂  It's just another day. No more, no less. Nevertheless, I do love food, so why pass an opportunity to treat mah self. Step aside, V day. It's C day 😎  (because for those who don't know, my name is Cici)

Holiday Time with Family in Phu Quoc

I was in Hanoi for the Lunar New Year, then went to Phú Quốc for a few days before heading to Saigon again yesterday.

A few brief luxury chilled days with my family at JW Marriott Phu Quoc. Let's do a little review of my stay. Nah, man, I'm not rich. Shit, if being unemployed could get you rich, everyone would quit their job haha. No, my father just happens to know the right people, so we got invited there. Talk about the power of networking, eh? This talent suddenly hasn't been passed onto me as I'm a antisocial, thus can't stand most - seriously, most - people hehe 👽

Happy Lunar New Year!

Happy Lunar New Year, guys!

This year is the year of chicken 🐓 😁

Oh, and yeah, it's Lunar New Year, not Chinese New Year. China doesn't own the bloody holiday. We call it Tết in Vietnam.
