Phu Quoc - Sai Gon, September 1st 2011

Moon Resort did not cease to deliver me disappointments until my last moments at their resort. To make a long story short, their credit card machine wasn't working properly. So I was required to pay by cash. Meanwhile they held my passport tight. When I tried to grab it, a young man walked into the office. (All the staffs dealing with me were females.) I gave in and paid by cash. A month later, my card was credited for the same amount from Moon Resort!!

The details of what happened during the check out procedure in Moon Resort, I will describe in my other blog which specifically about Vietnam. I just want to tell you now that I didn't find anything as shown on the photos in their website here. Not just about the restaurant, the other items written on their internet I found was just a big lie. It was here also where I discovered that more than 500,000 VND was missing from my purse. I don't know exactly when it happened. For sure I still had it when I just arrived at the resort. However, I did leave my room unlocked with my purse inside the room once. I left my room to go to the front desk office to exchange the padlock they gave me, because the padlock was rusty and wouldn't click. I know that was stupid of me, though.

That's yet not all the misfortunes I had with Moon Resort. Anyway, let's move on.

Here we are now in the boarding-waiting room of Phu Quoc Airport. There's plenty of light and there's free (and speedy) WiFi here. I cannot help wondering how on earth my country's capitol city's international airport be many, many, many times bigger, but gloomy? And don't ever think of getting WiFi connection. Well, some people have been asking me, "What is it that keeps you returning to Vietnam?" Hmmm, I think it is WiFi. :D

Now, this is my second experience flying with a foreign turbo jet.

Once again, I took some aerial pictures. I think I want to blame the plane's window for not being crystal clear, because once again also, I couldn't produce clear pictures, either with my EOS or with my Nokia.

That's Phu Quoc Island beneath. I can't stop wondering on which part that beach of long white thing is? It would be quite an experience to stand on a beach where the waves roll on my left and right side.

Like the one above, this one is also brought to you by Nokia. Bye bye, Phu Quoc Island!

Now, by Canon. It's still isn't clear. There's that sort of magenta tone. Ah.

I was fascinated by the little fluffy clouds hovering over the islands. I imagined an angel doing her make up. Suddenly her box of cotton fell off the table. Wind blew her cotton everywhere scattering above earth.

That's Mekong River in sight, I believe. Even from far above, it looks so grand.

Mekong River flowing through the rice fields.

Now I'm fascinated by the shadow of clouds upon Mekong River.

I guess, here comes Sai Gon River. CMIIW

Sai Gon River, although not as grand as Mekong River, for me, a girl who grew up in Jakarta, a wide river flowing through a big city like this, should be considered a luxury.

When I look from the plane window to Jakarta City, the main color is brownish. Here, it looks whitish.
