This restaurant is apparently the cleanest in town. Oh shiz. Oh yeah, Pho here is 30, 000 VND. Which is $1.5 CAD!

My first Pho Tai in Vietnam! It was okaaay. Not as great as at home, obviously. I wasn't full after the first bowl so I ordered a second bowl. The second bowl contained a bunch of onions rather than the actual pho noodles and there wasn't a lot a real meat.

After ordering a gazillion dishes, my aunt and I went to take professional photos. In Vietnam, you get a huge album to yourself for really cheap ($50 CAD). I’m sure that Vancouver is way more expensive than that.

I have a love-hate relationship with these false lashes. Love because they make my eyes look nicer than they actually are. Hate because they block 70% of my eyesight. #people trying to too hard to be pretty problems

The uncivilized part of Vietnam. People don't throw their trash here. There aren't even garbage bins here. Seriously.

"Ho lo" candy!!! I saw this type of candy in so many old Chinese dramas. I was really excited to try it but I was disappointed with the taste. It's actually not that special.
