Day 1 in Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City


I arrived at Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) yesterday afternoon. My first impressions were hot and clean. It reminds me to Bangkok, but much cleaner. The traffic was quite bad from the airport to my hotel that located in District 1. So far I like this city.

After I’ve arrived at the hotel, I took a quick shower. Me and husband took a short walk to Bui Vien Street to find something to eat. My husband ordered chicken spring rolls and I ordered local’s stir fried vegetables and pineapple fried rice. It was tasty!


Of course, my best friend, Adenomyosis won’t leave me alone. It gave me cramps that pushed us rushed to our hotel sooner than our plan. When we arrived, I found that my new electric hot water bag didn’t came out with a charger in its packaging. I felt frustrated. 

My husband rushed out to find a hot water bag for me. He came home with this:


If I were in China, I wouldn’t buy this type of hot water bag. It’s low quality, it smelled like burnt plastic when I pour hot water in it. But this is the best my husband could find. He went to 3 three different pharmacies to get this. 

He also bought this:


Paracetamol with codeine? The pharmacy people said should help with the pain. But I’m too scared to experiment with a new medicine when I’m in pain, so I’ll stick with ibuprofen. 

Around 7pm I found that I had my period. Okay, all of the pain made sense now. It came one day earlier than the prediction.

I ate mangoes that I bought from a street vendor for dinner.


Around 9 pm my husband back from dinner and brought me this :


Green juice with ginger in it. I passed out after I drank it. I think it helps with the pain. I only took total 1 ibuprofen yesterday.

It’s hard to travel when you have Adenomyosis. Lots of preparations needed. And when something messed up, you need to be prepare for the worst. I’m grateful to have such a wonderful husband who understands how hard living with Adenomyosis would be. I love him very very much! 😍😍😍
