Holidays always come to an end too soon! Today was our last day. After breakfast at the hotel, we chilled a bit in our room before checking out. Left our luggage with the hotel, while we went for some final eats and drinks.

Hubby especially picked Hatvala Tea & Coffee for lunch, as it was supposed to specialise in tea 🙂 Unfortunately, due to the massive construction just outside the cafe, they have stopped serving food 😮 Nonetheless, the staff was very kind to allow us to bring in food from outside. So we went to the Banh Mi stall just next to the cafe, ordered a combination flavour Banh Mi (VND15,000), and brought it into the shop so that we could enjoy the drinks. Hubby had a Iced Latte (VND70,000), while I tried the Mountain Mist Tea (VND75,000).

This is a museum on the Vietnam War, and it is a rather emotional exhibition to us, and it serves to remind us of the cruelty of war and the selfishness of people.

Sleepy but happy couple

We arrived at the airport around 5am in the morning for breakfast 🙂 Also, because the boarding pass indicated that we should still go to the airport early for verifications. Strange, but anyway, we did the self check-in since we did not have any check-in luggage, so we spent like 5 minutes to do all that, and went to the nearby coffee and toast for breakfast. Hubby decided on the Ham and Cheese Croissant Set ($5), while I settled for the Ham and Cheese Toast ($4.60), after observing the other customers eating not-very-appetizing-looking traditional toast.

The eggs were cracked for us, but I was not sure if it was deliberate that we each got 1 whole soft boiled egg and 1 broken egg. So we swallowed the whole egg and dipped the bread into the remaining runny egg yolk 😀 The ham and cheese were very salty and went better with the slightly buttery croissant.
