Currently at departure lounge, Nha Trang airport. Will be taking local flight VN445 from Nha Trang to Ho Chi Minh city.

Flight is delayed by half an hour; now expected to depart at 3:55pm local time.

Nevermind, nothing to rush anyway. Free and easy until tomorrow afternoon.

Something not quite right about this blogger account.

This was what I updated after we have safely arrived in Nha Trang. It was supposed to be uploaded more than an hour ago, but never came out.

"Alhamdulillah.

All praises to Allah. We have arrived safely in Nha Trang (pronounce Na Chang) - our final target destination.

Good climb, beautiful beach views from the cliff.

What a fitting finale after four days of grueling ride.

Alhamdulillah."


Nevermind, what is important is that we have duly arrived safely at our final destination.

In between my entries on my Saigon cycling tour 2011, let me take this 2-minutes break to wish my beloved wife ..."Happy Anniversary" yang ke 14.

Thank you, thank you and thank you for being my wife.

Luv u dearest.

Oh God, the headwind is too strong.

Help me please....

We stopped at a petrol station for a short break after we found out that cycling against headwind would not bring us anywhere. None of us had ever experience this before. Imagine cycling at the average speed of 25-28 kilometer per hour against the headwind of the same speed....it was almost as standstill!

We are passing by the beach town of Mui Ne. Beautiful beaches and lots of tourists, spas, massages and live bands.

They even have their very own version of "alleycats".






Stopped several places to take pictures.

Second break right after the town of Pan Thiet. And I found myself a Twister. Heavenly drink.





Before this, we had a fruity break.







We still do not know the name of this fruit.

It is sweet and taste like durian belanda or sour sop. Even the seeds look the same. Hamdan called the fruit as the passion fruit or buah nona. Others disagreed.
