Finally!

I finally managed to upload some photos of my parents' weekend visit here. I've been trying for days but the Internet has been too slow (these Vietnamese love their online games slowing down the I-net café servers even more). I also used my journalistic discretion (!) in deciding not to post the photos from the evening at The Arena during the World Cup quarter-final between England and Portugal as well as pics of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts being caught with his pants down at Ben Thanh Market - who says I didn't learn anything in my Media Ethics module? By the way, if you know anyone who works for Die Son who might be interested in the photos drop me an email and I'd be happy to negotiate...

We had cockatils on the 23rd floor of the Sheraton with Lucille, Andrew and Erika (my brother's girlfriend, and South African friends who work here - respectively).

My mom and Christoff at Go2 in Pham Ngu Lao.


We had dinner one night at this awesome Vietnamese restaurant called Quan An Ngon (it means "Something Delicious").

We went for Sunday lunch at Binh Quoi, this toursity resort on the Saigon River.

From the left: Lucille, my parents, Andrew and Erika.


We had ice-cream at Fanny's - "Where all our ice-creams are made from your dreams".


My dad really wanted to go haggle/barter at Ben Thanh Market (I think he just liked all the attention).


This is him in action bartering for some Levi's.

Haai Henno dankie vir die mooi foto's wat jy op jou blog gesit het. Net jammer daar is nie een van jou nie. Kyk of daar een is wat jy ook kan opsit vir jou ma en pa wat dit verskriklik geniet het om by julle te kuier. Ek sal vir jou ook aanstuur - het vergeet toe ek e-pos gestuur het.

Ya henno, ons vergeet amper hoe lyk jy!

henno said...

I'll see what I can do, but Caz there's a beautiful photo of me everytime I post a comment, hoe kan jy dan vergeet?!

Ek is vreeeslik verlig, want kon darem nou met my eie oe sien dat Christoff nog leef - en heel normaal lyk!

CAZ!!!!!! said...

It really is beautiful, I must admit! What about a full length, a profile shot etc? Model so bietjie vir jou fan base!

I'd love to Caz, but I don't think my agent will allow any more freebies...Loesil - ja wat, die man is nog lewendig, al is hy 'n hele paar kilos ligter (hy't my verbied om die foto van hom op te sit waar dit lyk as of hy brandsiek is: soos maar nekkie soos 'n kanarie se kuit en 'n klein koppie soos 'n tabakrollertjie)

What nice pictures, looks like you had loads of fun with your folks bru. Although I reckon you airbrushed christoff into those foties. My theory is that the two of you were exploring those tunnels and he fell into a hole, you havent found him yet have you? Nail on the head. hehe. I cant believe the world cup is over, so much hype and just like that...poof!...gone. At least theres still loads of crazy shit going down, like juve and co. being relegated! Lance Armstrong calling the French team a bunch of assholes and shit! Makes for entertaining reading. So yeah, welcome back to all the lady blog visitors, me n henno have missed you, i think. Although i'm sure you peeked in skelmpies and checked up on things while the WC was on. Ne! Nail on the head.

loesil said...

Ja mullet - dit is ook seker die enigste female contact wat jy kry? Ne? Nail on the head.Hehe!

loesil said...

O ja, wil Tannie nie asb vir ons die regte storie oor Christoff vertel nie? Dalk IS Mullet reg oor die photoshop?!

En Christoff - jy mag nie al die aandag wat jy hier kry geniet nie!

mullet said...

Dammit loesil! Moes jy nou vir almal gaan laat weet het! I was trying to keep that little detail under lock and key. Oh well, now you know. So what you girls wearing? hehe...

loesil said...

Ha-ha!

Henno, jou blog staan op die punt om 'n age restriction te kry!

alet said...

Ek los julle klomp vir 'n oomblik alleen en dié word 'n comment-sexline...

alet said...

mmmm...die onderwerp van Xtoff..hy het op dié foto's van Henno presies dieselfde hemp aan as op die Arniston-foto's...mmm...dalk die oorsprong van die airbrush image?
