On September 2nd, Vietnam celebrates a national holiday that commemorates their official declaration of independence from France in 1945. We decided to join in the revelry.
Saturday brought a procession of activities: a stop at an art talk (Sa Sa Projects of Phnom Penh), dinner and drinks on Nguyen Thung Truc, dancing the night away at Vasco's with Unconventional Science and Jase, and late night soup slurping at Osaka Ramen.

Post-meal, we did as the locals do and hung out blissfully and aimlessly in Tao Dan Park.
The purchase of a ball for some intense ball-games action.
Psychedelic ball kept us occupied for a fun-wracked hour until an untimely demise was met.
On the way home, we stopped, grabbed a refreshing Dua Tac on Hai Ba Trung, and purchased some festive decorations for the up-coming Mid-Autumn Festival. I went for the cock and fish.
Our homes are currently occupied by the spirits of our deceased ancestors! Never a lonely minute in Saigon...
