Happy Anniversary! Worst. Flight. Ever. (Long last day Saigon and Transfer to New Jersey)

Our flight wasn’t leaving until after midnight, so we had a full day and night to spend in Saigon before the long flights home. We decided the last day would be spent with a little sight seeing, some pampering, shopping, and finishing up with another motorbike tour.

We had to see if our custom stuff was done first, so we went to the tailor’s place to see if our stuff was ready. Unfortunately Sal’s wasn’t there yet so he’d have to go back later. Mine was there, so I went to try it on. I got into the little room and could barely fit the dress over my hips. I was like, “what the…how much did I actually eat at that beer tasting?!?” Then I noticed the sleeves were missing, too. Finally I figured out he had accidentally given me the sample size and not my fitted dress. We all got a good chuckle out of that one. The actual dress fit great and I loved it. Sal’s still wasn’t ready and he’d have to go back later and get his. I was slightly worried he wouldn’t get his in time, but it all worked out in the end.

We strolled a bit and checked out the Post Office.

Motorbiking And Beer Tasting (Saigon Day Two)

We got up early and walked over to the park where there was supposed to be a bird cafe (a cafe where people bring their birds to practice singing). Unfortunately we weren’t up early enough, and there really weren’t all that many birds! We did see a bunch of people exercising in various ways, though:

Beautiful Park
Free machines with bikes
Early morning dancers!

AO Show (Saigon Day One)

We were back in Saigon for a few nights and this was the last stop of our amazing holiday, so it was a bit bittersweet. We took it easy for most of the day.  We went to the tailor to try on our custom-made clothing. I had a dress and Sal had a shirt and a sports coat. I tried the dress on and thought it was just OK; I didn’t really notice it being any better than something I’d buy off the rack. The tailor saw it and saw where it needed to be taken in. He used pins and chalk and I have to say it did look better afterward, even with just the pins. Fitted is very nice!
