To market, to market …

Not this morning, alas “ buy a fat pig…”, but to stock up on fresh veges, and a salad-filler.

Steamed kumara, fresh lettuce, and tofu

Cost for the above? 15,000 VND or about $NZD 1.

The kumaras are perfect with a bit of melted butter. The tofu is a recent addition, on learning that it’s mainly protein and fat, and a ‘cheap as chips’ salad-filler at about 30 cents.

Plus, I’ve discovered that the woman stall-holder whose duck eggs are the freshest I’ve found, also has reliably non-flaccid veges on offer.

Go figure.

Morning Haul

Below is the result of the third order of business for the morning.

Eggs, Pak Choy,tomato

That is, off to the nearby ( 1km ) market, where I scored shown pak choy, a dozen fresh duck eggs, and tomato. Price 45,000 VND ~= $NZD 3.

Which is another thing I love about this place – cheap produce.

Two others are the first and second orders of business for the day. The first, walk on the nearby beach, and the second, a morning cup of genuine potent Vietnamese coffee.

Easy days. But things are about to get tougher, with the scheduled start of school Monday March 2.
