All the kains we bought...
First, we went to the top most floor where clothes we sold. Nothing we liked there so we headed to the fabric area. Here we got more of those boing-boing materials. We also managed to get some really good bargains on Vietnamese silk. Muni & Jupe got some. This time I passed the silk...ummppp something very unusual for me. After the kains, we went down and headed to the handbag section. The first store we stopped at didn't have anything we really liked. The girl at the shop was pretty aggressive trying to sell something to us.
Mom's bag...dark blue with sunflowers
We walked to another one round the corner. I spotted this nice bag, blue black with floral embroidery on it. Mom had texted me from Mecca (she and her friends went for umrah a few days before I left for Hanoi) asking how things were with my trip and asked me to look for a nice bag for her. I felt the one I saw would be just nice for Mom to put her things when she goes for her mengaji class. Really a striking one and I was sure Mom would like it. Then I saw another one and another one. Ahhh sudah...ader 3 pieces yang dah really, really jatuh hati on the bags. I asked the girl how much were those bags. She gave some figure in Dong....entah berapa tah. Something like 250,000 to 300,000VND for one. So 3 bags would be more than 600,000VND!!! Wah...gilos minah ni. No way I was gonna pay that much for the bags. But sukaaaa nyer pada ALL the bags. Have to get it, really a must buy.
We were all so tired by then. The afternoon heat was getting at us and tiring us down. We walked cross the road and then hailed down a cab to take us back to the hotel.
