Binh Quoi Village

When Belinda was in Ho Chi Minh I wanted to immediately get out of Ho Chi Minh and go to Mui Ne.  However, Belinda wanted to experience the city and get a feel for what a typical week might be for me. Even though it was my birthday week, she did travel 20+ hours to see … Continue reading Binh Quoi Village

The Real MVP

BELINDA CAME TO HO CHI MINH FOR MY 23rd BIRTHDAY. It was by far one of the best birthday presents I have ever received. I was born in San Diego and grew up in Cerritos, CA. So when it was time to decide where to go for college (sophomore year  in college - I committed early) … Continue reading The Real MVP

The Instagrams That Never Made It Pt. 4

December was an absolutely insane month. We pretty much had visitors coming and going and it seemed as if I was busy every single second of every day for a month straight entertaining. I took a ton of photos but as you know I can't Instagram everything. There are rules people. Here are the unlucky ones. … Continue reading The Instagrams That Never Made It Pt. 4

The Instagrams That Never Made It — Pt. 3

Out of the blue, my phone decided to say night night after going running while here in Vietnam.  Obviously if I was home I would have simply made a Genius Bar appointment and taken it to an apple store. Of course they don't have apple stores here in Vietnam. They have 'Certified Apple Resellers and Repairs' … Continue reading The Instagrams That Never Made It — Pt. 3

The Motorbike Chronicles

If you've ever been in a car with me, especially my 2001 Toyota Corolla, Trina (because she's the baddest bitch), you know it drives like a toy so I tend to treat it like one.  My driving may or may not have make you feel like you were going to die at one point or … Continue reading The Motorbike Chronicles

That One Time Megan Tried To Kill Me

This is really awkward, but Megan tried to kill me on Sunday. To say I'm skeptical about driving on a moto after my mini accident on Freaky Friday Halloween is an understatement. I can easily drive to Hien's for lunch because it is  basically a straight shot from my apartment. I'm okaaaaaay with driving to … Continue reading That One Time Megan Tried To Kill Me

Erm, well..... Ho Chi Minh has been a little bit loopy lately Within a 72 hour period I interviewed for a teaching job, demo'd (taught a class with someone analyzing me), was hired and signed a contract for said teaching position. In the midst of all of the interviewing, Meeg and I were on a hunt for an apartment … Continue reading 0-100

What I’m Listening To Pt. 1

I'm supposed to have a post about the weeks after Da Nang and the business/stress of it all. but I feel like BGNC needs a break from my life updates. How about we talk about music? One of my favorite life topics. Not sure what it is or how, but I've discovered some killer jams while … Continue reading What I’m Listening To Pt. 1

Weekend In “Paradise” [Pt. 2]

Without a single fear of being kidnapped or sold — we made it to Funtastic! And if things couldn’t get any better we were in the same hostel as our friends! Can I get a holla on avoiding awkward hostel roommates!? Especially the ones that snore..... Everyone was kinda burned out from the day so we took … Continue reading Weekend In “Paradise” [Pt. 2]
