Finally, I found time for lunch with my best friends, Tuyet, Thao and Lien. I don't really know why I didn't go to my best friends' houses in the first few days there. I feel bad as I write this post.
I suppose the reason why is that Tet is a family occasion most of all. I spent my time at home and playing tennis with my sister. We had such a great time there. So, finally, on the last day before I left there, Thao, Lien and Tuyet invited me out for lunch at a restaurant along the river, which is such a great place to eat, peaceful, quiet and delicious food. We ordered too much food as usual - a hot pot, frog, cuttle fish, prawn, fish and different kinds of salad.
We chatted about so many things, about who will get married first or who can afford to get married...I always feel so good being with them, so much laughing and jokes. After the meal, my friends wanted to go to the fortune teller. We found a place but so many people were waiting because having your fortune told at the beginning of the lunar new year is very popular. I had to catch the train to Saigon so we decided to do it next time.
A few months ago I gave up using a mobile phone but my friend, Tuyet, gave me one saying "you have to use a mobile because we all need to message each other to inform that we are all still alive", so I have to use a mobile phone again. It was great to catch up with them.
