delicate metal

Cal Lane has some nice pieces on her website. She is an artist that uses steel as a medium for lace work. Really beautiful.

Nice stuff; don't know why, but it reminds me of Jennifer Beals welding the hot steel :)

Less than one month to new lunar year! How'bout some short recap of the plus and cons of your stay so far ? If that's not too indiscrete... says the not so sly reader soon to be saigonized...

hmmm... there are a lot of pluses, some cons, but since the pluses outweigh the cons, i decided I like saigon enough to stay a while.

so pluses, well it easy to travel to other southeast asian countries if you haven't been because its so close. life for me has been more relaxed here. I don't feel rush which has lowered my stress immensely.

the cons, mostly with vietnam's lack of customer service and accesibilty to certain products like non-guady hairties, elmer's glue, relish.... little things like that. new items are showing up on shelves monthly though, so i think eventually this particular pet peeve will dissappear.

Well, if these are the main cons, I can live with that.

Maybe once I get past the traffic blitz and the exhaust fumes, I'll have time to reminisce on the amenities here in France that I hope I won't miss. Like real cheese lol

there are a couple of places you can get real cheese, not as much of a variety, but hey they've got great fruit :)
