So, we desperately called Marim and luckily, Marim explained to the van conductor in Vietnamese and we finally stopped somewhre to take a taxi to Marim's house.
Fateh slept all the way through our journey until we arrived Marim's house. Actually, it is a blessing to have a Muslim friend from a non-Muslim country as accomodation and Halal meal aren't a big problem. Travelling is either by taxi or motorcycle. We had lunch and performed prayer at Marim's house before leaving to a beach nearby to savour the seafood.
The food of course was very tasty. Vietnamese cuisines from my opinion, is a mixture of Chinese and Thailand dish. Most meat is either freshly boiled with vegetables or grilled after being marinated with herbs. The fried fish dipped in Vietnamese chillie sauce has always been my fave since i visited her house in 2011!
Marim's mother cooked a lot for us and i was so flattered that she cooked my fave fish again and also the famous Vietnamese Pho.
