I left my hostel at about 5:30PM in order to catch the last bus to the airport. For some reason, all buses stop at 6AM, making it quite difficult to get around Saigon. At the bus station, near the market, it took me about 15 minutes to figure out that there weren’t any more buses. So reluctantly, I took a motorcycle taxi to the airport. I negotiated a fair price in my opinion of 50,000 Dongs, which was 10x the price of a bus ride.

Take a look at these awesome shots taken by Kalani from the Accidental Broadcast motovlog. I sort of disagree with the way that he sets his limitations, but to each his own. The photos are pretty good, with good composition, nice dynamic range, and lots of interesting details.

An upcoming departure always fills me with anticipation, especially when I’m traveling in countries that I’ve never been to before. Thankfully I have been getting ready for the trip for the last few weekends, purchasing a diving mask with my prescription, swimming goggles with my prescriptions, and other miscellaneous things. Just like last year, I’ll be taking along a Gregory Z35 pack, that’s basically it. This time around, I won’t be taking my laptop. I’ll have my iPad filled up with TV shows and books. That should keep me busy. I will be meeting a mate in Dumaguete, Philippines, who will also be scuba diving, but at another resort.

Plenty of phones comes with bloatware, but most of the time, manufacturers tend to limit the scope of these and won’t include malware. Well, the Chinese seem to have taken it up a notch, and will deliver you a phone that comes standard with malware!

I seem to remember there being some bone conduction headphones on the market a few years back, but these are the first that I’ve come across in a while. These headphones look like an interesting middle ground between headphones and earphones.

Apparently, anything that’s made out of wood is good. This is also true of Tokyoflash’s new watch, which appears to be encased completely in wood. It’s all rustic, and ready to go camping!

3D printers are becoming quite popular, and there seems to be no end in sight about the things that they can output. However, this is the first time I’ve heard anything about one that can print makeup.
