Vietnam? Vietnam!

We are going to Vietnam!

viet flag

The trip has been confirmed.
This is the first time we’ll be leaving the country together & we are both thrilled.
What’s more exciting is we are actually leaving next week!


I have always enjoyed travelling, and I hope this trip to Vietnam will be as fruitful as it can get.

This time, Benjamin & I will get to travel with Tommy the Tomato too!

Tommy the Tomato is actually just a stressball I get from donating blood.
I gave it to Benjamin because he found it cute.
But after Benjamin brought it along with him to USA last year, it has became our little travelling gnome.
Just like the one Amelie had with her father, except that ours takes the shape of a tomato.

Amelie gnome

Look at where Tommy the Tomato had travelled with Benjamin!




And even visited Marilyn Monroe on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame!


I’m feeling excited for Tommy the Tomato & ourselves.

Hello to Vietnam soon!

  11. well done pegs, for the reply to mr/miss haha, i dun think this asshole is doing anywhere better in his/her life! HAHAS!

    to HAHA: Each of us has our highest and lowest point of life, and we should be respecting each other by giving them moral support but not to demoralize them! If you are so unhappy for this girl being here doing wat she is doing, I would advise you to leave ur ass right now. Has she provoked you for what is she is doing rite now? So dun provoke her!


    May 13, 2009 at 11:30 am

  12. ling, i’m not sure if 3 days is sufficient but i’m only going there for 3 days only. :p

    xiaowei, yes i gave the tomato to benjamin last year and i was still with miumiu when i gave it to him but NO WAY we were together back then already! I was still with my ex. benjamin and i studied for exams together last november, that’s how i knew him.

    thanks shiyuan and justina ad ronolics.


    May 13, 2009 at 11:45 am

  13. oh! i think i saw you at the flea market held at homeclub last weekend! :)

    Ben looks good with the tomato. haha!! Take tons of pictures in Vietnam hun!! I hope it’s fun!!

    And I’m sure you’ll do well in school this time round! no worries. xox


    May 13, 2009 at 2:02 pm

  14. which part of vietnam you going? i heard Halong bay is beautiful :)


    May 13, 2009 at 2:40 pm

  15. hey peggy, i love ya post as my fren sherlyn does haha. shes my gd galfren..

    haha: i guess this is the way how ppl will look at u too. no point bringing ppl down, it doesnt do u any gd n is tiring.. isnt it? n r u really happy by doing that?

    i think sixpegs need not owe any explaination to anyone whom donno her well nor ppl whom r not close to her regarding her rs. i guess everyone has their right to go for whats their heart tells them rite? if one day the feeling is gone, means gone wat.. wats wrong with pursing one’s happiness?

    i ever loved someone v much, but i left him cos this is the happiness which i can give him when we both feel theres no love bet us. happiness is not being tgt but yet unhappy.

    peggy, dont bother bout those wu liao ppl, hope ur trip is a sweet n memorable one :p


    May 13, 2009 at 2:53 pm

  19. haha Tommy the Tomato – that’s the name my uncle john gave!

    It’s funny how that stressball you get free from blood donations can actually be so funny, eh? I remember you wanted to throw it away but I took it cos it looks so funny!

    May 13, 2009 at 11:41 pm

      May 19, 2009 at 5:15 am

  20. hi peggy. don’t worry abt all the negative remarks/comments yeah. cos you’ll find out just how many people out there who are on your side and are willing to speak up for you :)

    enjoy vietnam! i heard its beautiful!


    May 14, 2009 at 12:07 am

  21. if you are going HCM rite, dun join those tours to mekong river.. is very boring and time consuming! but do visit kuchi tunnels! :D


    May 14, 2009 at 12:36 am

    • hello val,
      thanks for your comment.
      sadly, benjamin and i do not have time for both the mekong river and kuchi tunnels!
      i really wish we could visit the kuchi tunnels as well because it’s so cool from what i’ve read about it.
      oh well, i can only wish for a second trip to vietnam now…


      May 19, 2009 at 5:14 am

  22. Hi Peggy,

    I miss Vietnam heaps. I bet you will have lots of fun there. Ho Chi Minh is very very nice. :) Coz that is where I am from. Be careful of the traffic though. Dont forget to take tons of pictures. Good luck.


    May 14, 2009 at 3:18 am

    • woo you’re vietnamese?
      exotic! :p
      i hope i’ll enjoy your country heaps too, annie.
      i am already very excited about all the pho and yummy soups i’ve been reading about.
      would love to visit the museums there too!


      May 19, 2009 at 5:16 am

  23. Hey peggy, I feel for you..
    but great reply you wrote to the arsehole!

    Seriously,life is more than studies. It doesn’t matter how many years we take to get that piece of paper..cos most people don’t even get the chance to enter local uni.
    And I think it’s perfectly okie to feel lost about one’s future becos it’s a period everyone have to go through before getting to where we want to be.
    Don’t have to live your life to conformity,just live it the way you want,to your own definition and as long as you’re happy and loved :)
    Have a fun and safe trip with bf!

    I talk too much,


    May 14, 2009 at 12:52 pm

    • hello dear thanks a lot for your encouraging comment.


      May 16, 2009 at 5:05 am

  24. peggypegs! sigh.. im in the same boat as u.
    screwed up with my studies soo much.
    i’m of the same age as u, and i feel so unaccomplished in my life right now.
    comparatively, u’re doing wayyyyy better than me.

    so dont feel so bad eh? :(


    May 14, 2009 at 1:29 pm

  25. i was at the homeclub flea but i didn’t see you! and i’ve been wanting to go to vietnam too.. heard things are damn cheap! prolly later on this year, so lemme know if it’s fun yeah?

    and my my, it always amazes me how there are tons of douchebags out there who derive pleasure from putting people down. they probably can’t stand to see all the other good stuff happening to you, so screw them lar. i think it’s cool that you even allowed the comment in the first place – shows you’re above all that shit. be strong!


    May 15, 2009 at 12:55 am

    • haha thanks melody.
      it was nice bumping into you in town earlier too.
      really dope shoes you’ve got there.
      how come you can get all the chic clothes. unfair.


      May 16, 2009 at 5:06 am

  26. Hi peggy, michelle here! the one who was beside u during the first air pollution quiz last sem.

    Have fun it’s the hols!

    Eh haha, you never learnt not to push people further down when they are low is it?

    Even bystanders are angered by your comments.

    Remember what goes around comes around. It’ll be your turn soon. kns…


    May 15, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    • oh michelle, i remember you.
      i copied your answers.
      i didn’t know you read my blog.
      thanks for standing up for me on this one.
      i’ve got a lot of haters out there lah. haha.

    May 15, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    • yes eunice, and tommy has been to the walk of fame and met marilyn monroe there.


      May 16, 2009 at 5:07 am

  29. hello peggy… feel happy for u n Ben… but was really curious wad happen to u n mew mew ? sorry for any offence though..


    May 15, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    • hello joyce, no offence. no worries.
      firstly, i used to call shaowei miumiu here, not mew mew. :p
      (but they sound the same anyway. oh well!)

      but yea, what happened between miumiu & i is that we were already feeling distant when he was away. things didn’t get better when he came back. in short, we just realized that we can live without each other. and that’s not good news.
      so viola. it’s byebye miumiu.
      and hello new life.


      May 16, 2009 at 5:09 am

    • i saw u both few times in NTU food court…the last time seeing u both havin the japanese food.. u both still look ok though..feel sad for u both….i saw ya on bus 179 b4 exam tat week..wana approach u ! ha ha.. anw im the Joyce who added ya on FB last nite… :)


      May 16, 2009 at 10:07 am

    • hey joyce,
      please don’t feel upset because of what happened between shaowei and i.
      because right now, i am contented with what i have found in benjamin.
      and shaowei is also happy with his other new half now.
      so you should feel happy for me! :)
      thanks for the add on facebook btw.


      May 19, 2009 at 5:12 am

  30. it’s spelt as ‘voila’, not viola. Viola is an instrument! aiyoh too brainwashed by me ah… LOL

  31. hi sorry to ask, so it was you initiated the breakup?
    That’s kinda cool, you 2 have been tog for so many years. I doubt i can be as 潇洒 as you.
    I have not been reading ur blog till I saw you and your new guy at tampines1 last sat. Your tattoo was very recognisable, I saw it first before knowing it’s you.
    Actually you can block haha comments as spam and prevent from appearing on your blog right.. but don’t u agree his/her neg comments help gain more loyal supporters and viewership?


    May 19, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    • hello ho,
      it was miumiu who initiated the breakup.
      i didn’t block haha’s comments because i didn’t want people to think that i only allow positive comments.
      like i said, i allow anyone to leave a comment & i will approve it as long as it doesn’t hurt my friends and my love ones.
      nothing to do with gaining more loyal supporters or viewership.
      thanks for your comment!
