Hanoi - After Dark on Paloma [Part 5]

13 February 2012 @ Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

We were told to get to the deck of the boat right after we came back from the fishing village. And we saw fruits, juices and red wine awaiting our arrival.

All 12 passengers from different parts of the world had a good time mingling around while enjoying the refreshments prepared by the crew.

The sky was getting dark and we took a short rest before our next agenda.

At around 6.30pm, we gathered at the restaurant for a cooking lesson!

The dish that we will be making is the Vietnamese Spring Roll. The chef introduced the ingredients and started mixing them up.

Then he showed us how to roll them up using rice paper. Everyone's excited and can't wait to roll their own spring roll.

It's fun to see who has rolled the perfect spring roll. You'll be surprised how many different shapes and sizes of spring rolls we came out with.

That's Mine!

That's hers!

The chef then brings out a pan and deep fry the spring rolls in front of us.

While he's doing that, Jerry explained the most important part of the dish - the sauce. It's made out of chilli, coriander, sugar, water and fish sauce.

Though all the spring rolls were in different sizes, they were all tastilicious!

Dinner was served straightaway and we went for squid fishing after that.

First hand trying squid fishing and I caught one! You need some skills to get one you know. =D

No luck for JooLi though. Only 2 squids were caught throughout the entire session.

The mist surrounded us again and it's hard to see what's really out there. We can only see a few other boats in the sea also stopping there for a night.

The breeze was too cold to bear at night so we headed back to our room to hit dreamland. Billy, out.
