Seriously, walking around town for miles net you NOT even a bead of sweat ....
Felt as though it's spring, though it was just past winter .....
Roasting suckling pig by the roadside .... Looks tempting, yet the hygiene factor put us off .... To imagine vehicles zooming by every few seconds, adding extra zest to the meat!
A tranquil scene at the lake in Sapa ..... we spent a good half hour or more camwhoring here!
Business must be booming. Wondering whether the economic turmoil affects the people here? Or maybe there's the 'stimulus package' in the forms of tourism from all over?
A cheery lady selling yummy stuff by the sidewalk
I swear it was smoky when consuming! Lovely snack to have amidst the cool weather .....
The grilled sweet potato was priced at 5000 Dong/RM1/USD0.30 if I'm not mistaken. It was smoking hot when served fresh from the grill, so be careful. Though the temperature quickly dropped due to the overall cooling weather.
You've gotta choose your preferred stall. As the whole sidewalk was lined by similar stalls, selling EXACTLY the same food. Talk about united.
Carrot Cake (20,000 Dong/RM4/USD1.20)
The carrot cake was nothing spectacular, but a slice at only RM4, it was reasonably divine. Hahahaha ..... It was not too sweet either, and rather fluffy.
The crepe suzette was far from flaming, and not served/flamed on site, or on a pan. Ahem .... tasted like normal pancake drizzled with orange sauce, without liquor. Redemption point? The homemade pancake batter was passable, soft and not bland.
