Actually, this piece of writing was meant for Air Asia blog last year but i had difficulty uploading it. Therefore, i keep this journal and waiting to publish it in the near future. Never thought of publishing it in my own blog..Ha..ha...Here it goes...
At the beginning of the year, I'd planned with a few of my colleagues at work for a trip to Ho Chi Minh (HCM) City. Most of us bought the tickets through the FB extra 20% promotion and we managed to grab tickets to HCM City for less than RM200 per person. Tickets were purchased as early as 6 months in advanced, so we'd ample time to prepare for our vacation. It was just a short weekend getaway since most of us were working the next Monday. Even though it was such a short trip, but it was fun and memorable.
The day we had been waiting for had arrived. My friends including my husband and I (21 of us) departed to HCM City after work. Most of us are teachers, since it was Friday, so we could leave work earlier in the afternoon. Some friends brought their children along. Checking in was fast as we had used the online boarding service and printed our boarding pass before hand.
