*Vietnam was colonized by France for many years. The Notre Dame was built during their time. Vietnam is therefore heavily influenced by the European colony.

I’ve been to Vietnam once before, many years ago that I can’t remember much of my time there. I’m happy to have visited again and documented it!

I’ve always dreamed of going to Comicon in the US so when I found out about the Asiapop Comicon in Manila, I couldn’t pass up the chance! It is definitely a one of a kind experience and an event I will go to every year from now on. I had such a great time geeking out and the amazing part is no one cares what you look like cause in Comicon everyone’s a geek! *Also, kudos to the two dudes rocking Sailor Uranus and Sailor Mars costumes!*
