So, the two cakes weighing 1000 kgs each took 40 members of staff to prepare. They cook for 48 hours. One will be taken into District One tonight for the celebrations, and one will remain at Dam Sen to be eaten at a later stage.
Not really part of the TET celebrations but these models have been cleverly created using all kinds of cutlery -- plates, spoons, bowls and dishes.
Back in the city, and the entire Nga Bay Roundabout is awash with red, flags and ballons bobbing in the breeze.
Chi, my trouble and strife, promised we'd be having a big lunch, but I had no idea this entailed cooking enough food for the next ten days and putting it all on display 'just because we can'.
Everything has been cleaned, polished, buffed and scrubbed and looks good as new. The larder is stocked, the rice and salt are in. Got me new set of clothes, as did the family. So, looking good. Feeling good. No want for food, drink, cleaning, or anything else in the next week or so....ahhh perfect..I got that TET feeling. Well, that's the idea anyway...we're off to Cambodia on Sunday morning!
