Jamu Kunyit

There’s a few things I miss during our travels and it’s becoming more apparent lately.  One of them is having a food processor and a Vitamix blender.  Just those two kitchen items alone will help a lot.  The modern conveniences of a food processor and a powerful blender, I do miss. Jamu Kunyit is a …

Camping Gears

We took out our camping gears from storage and took it with us.  It’s something we’ve been looking forward to if we got a chance to go back to California.  The biggest challenge of traveling minimally is that it doesn’t always happen.  For instance, we had to check in baggage this time around for the …

Cycling in Ho Chi Minh City

We’ve been riding our bicycle on and off since last year and mainly cruising around downtown to explore. We live in a very congested street with hardly any sidewalks. The traffic is horrendous. On the bicycle, we generally try to go with the flow of the traffic and stay on the rightmost section of the …

Muay Thai for Life

This month marks 10 months of Muay Thai training in Ho Chi Minh City. Last year, it was 7 months and then this year it’s now 3 months going to 6 in June before we leave for the French Alps. Over a year of daily Muay Thai training, just like that. My other half have …

Two Years Later

We left Morocco in December and headed back to Vietnam. It was a nice feeling to be back to another place we call “home.” Living in Ho Chi Minh City is really tough but our focus is to live and breath Muay Thai. Our schedule is the same everyday, train, eat and sleep. A very …
