Throwback to New Year's Eve, I was already laying on top of bunk bed at 10pm ready to call it a day. I was too tired both physically and mentally. This spontaneous getaway was meant for me to take a break and refresh my mind for the beginning of the year. But it turned out that my brain still couldn't stop thinking about everything and I miss home more than I could imagine.
I don't usually meet Asians in the same dorm but this time around we have 3—one from Malaysia and two from our neighbourhood country Singapore! It was such a shame I didn't get to talk and share so much with them as I'm in anti-social mode most of the time, struggling with myself.
My ideal NYE night started off with a good shower after a (really) long day of walking. Then I enjoyed my quiet time in bed watching videos over my tab with my earphones on while getting myself comfortable in my PJs where the fresh laundry scent still lingers around. My designated bed was facing the window where I got to see what's happening outside the street. The rooftop party was happening since evening and it's getting louder as it's also getting late. It did not bother me much.
However, I was wide awake until 4 before I can finally fall asleep. Few hours later I woke up for breakfast and continue to explore as it will be my last day here before catching the night flight home.

So long Saigon, thank you for the perfect weather 3 days continuously. Thank you for making it so easy to explore places on foot. I will see you when I see you.
