Green Tangerine

Mike requested to dine at Green Tangerine before we set off to Hanoi.

We dined here 4 years ago.  CLICK.
Clearly, we had a memorable food experience then
hence we decided to revisit this place.

We enjoyed our meal here yet once again. 
Love the value-for-money set lunches :)

Revisiting the Old Quarter.

I love 2015 and the multiple long weekends throughout the year. 

I just wanted to 'get away' from KL and we decided on Hanoi
because we love the weather there in January (cool air)
we love beef noodles
and this time around, I had a specific purpose -
to get a few paintings for our home :)

The last time I went to Hanoi was in 2011. CLICK.
And when I read my old post, I called Mike to have a look
at the JACKET that he was wearing. . . . 

He wears that same ol jacket literally EVERYWHERE !
Genting, Hanoi, Melbourne, Europe, UK zzzzzzz
That's a very well travelled jacket.
He told me that he wore it while he was still studying in the States -_-

I am banning him from bringing his jacket to our next trip
because it's always the same jacket in all pics - SIEN!

Since we did all the touristy things to do in 2011, and although I did want to RE-DO it again, Mike didn't want to… so basically, apart from painting hunting, we just did what we do best - hunting and eating.

The best bowl of beef noodles throughout our trip. So good.

The first item we ate right after checking into the hotel. This place was recommended by the hotel staff. He said that this shop was run by 3 generations.

Cha ca la vong - Expensive is the word and also, artery clogging because it's full of oil. I ate here previously many years back and it was super packed then. This time around, it wasn't as packed as before.

This trip is actually my third trip to Hanoi.

Bun Cha  - we should have ordered for ONE because the portion for TWO was just way too much.
The crab spring rolls were just so-so for me.

Beef noodles at some restaurant recommended on a blog - can't remember the name offhand now.

Bun Bo Nam Bo - Mike said that is tasted better than what he could recall. It tasted exactly the same to me.

Popped by a cafe for some waffles. Great presentation and all but the waffle was just alright.

Sekeping Serendah

I remember how this trip was planned in 2014 and in the blink of an eye, we were already busy making preparations a week prior to this short and sweet weekend getaway.

Thanks to Jon, the master planner and thanks to everyone's cooperation, this trip was really enjoyable. I would have to say that we were pretty 'well prepared' because we brought every essential item needed so whenever an item was needed - it was there.

Ice boxes, food aplenty, seasonings, cooking oil, sharp knives, aluminium foil, tongs, paper plates, paper cups, water supply, serviettes, etc. We were ready to 'camp out'. Tee hee.

Actually, the place provides most of the basic cooking utensils but it was still not enough for it to be convenient enough to work with.

On the way there, we stopped by Kedai Makan Lan Je to have their famous steamed tilapia fish.

We ordered one fish per person. Not sure if Jon was pulling our legs when he said that it was a MUST to order one fish per person when eating there - anyway he did the ordering for us.

We stayed at the biggest 'room' - which is Warehouse 2.

The room is totally out in the OPEN. I am just thankful that I didn't get bitten by mosquitoes. And surprisingly, there weren't many mosquitoes actually - except for the cooking area as it's quite dark.
