We went to Ms Nga's wedding this Saturday. Vietnamese weddings are totally crazy. They're a bit like a cross between going to Disneyland and a game show. There was a really crazy castle on the stage where dancers/singers were performing. As usual there was a big explosion of silver confetti and red champagne poured over dry-ice and more food than you could ever eat. As westerners we were put on the top table, which we all found totally embarrassing as her friends and family were relegated to the back of the room. We're meant to be lucky and bring prosperity to the marriage. A real experience!
We had our school do last weekend. We went to a Vietnamese restaurant in town then on to a couple of bars. It was nice to catch up with everyone. Here are the only photos I took. I was doing too much chatting to take pictures although it did take about 10 photos to get Euan and I in the shot together - that's why my face is weird in one of them!

Gareth and I are taking a few days to relax before school starts again. We are on Phu Quoc - a little island near Cambodia. There's not much to but relax and that suits us fine! I am desperately trying to shed the pounds gained from too many monster munch, hula hoops and toffee cisps in the UK aaarrrggghh!
