  • Good morning guys, I'm here on the roof of my AirBNB

  • Let me show you guys what it looks like real quick.

  • And on the other side, there's a lake.

  • It's right over there.

  • This is the view.

  • And on this side, there's all this construction going on over here.

  • So in the daytime, it's really loud.

  • I hear welding going on over there, I hear hammering and other stuff going on over there.

  • But yeah, so good morning! It's around 9 o'clock right now.

  • So what I'm going to do is I'm going to go out and find some breakfast.

  • And maybe wander the streets and stuff like that.

  • I'm waiting to hear back from some realtors.

  • Yesterday, I saw 2 apartments.

  • Today, I'm hoping to meet more people, and hopefully find my new home here in Hanoi.

  • So we'll see how that goes.

  • If it doesn't work out today, hopefully tomorrow.

  • At the same time, I'm sending out resumes for jobs and stuff like that.

  • Just trying to get set in, so I'm good to go.

  • And I'm not staying in someone else's place.

  • So, let's hit the streets!

  • So I'm down here at the Old Quarter here in Hanoi

  • This is, I think, the oldest part of the city, from what I've read.

  • But this is a super touristy area, a lot of foreigners, a lot of hostels.

  • A lot of bars. But there's some pretty good food here, I remember.

  • I'm going to go and try and find some egg coffee.

  • So right by that fountain...

  • ...there's this shop.

  • See all the bags.

  • There's this little alley that you have to go into.

  • That's going to go to Cafe Dinh, and that's going to be up there.

  • Going to try this delicious egg coffee.

  • Wow, it's really good! It's very thick and creamy.

  • It's like whip cream, plus it has that yolk, and some other sweet flavor to it. Really nice!

  • Very smooth.

  • So I finally stirred up that egg yolk cream into the coffee so it's like fully mixed.

  • And it's a little bit more liquidy now, not so thick, but still thick.

  • Oh my god!

  • It's sooo good!

  • If you guys love cappuccinos, and you love eggs, and you love egg nog? And you like... maybe pancake batter? hehehe

  • It's really good!

  • I got my delicious Banh Mi here, it's got a variety of meats (pork thigh, sausage, pate) and some cucumber.

  • Add some hot sauce.

  • Oops, it's a little too much, but it's okay.

  • It is a HUMID day, I am like sweating buckets.

  • The temperature is fine, it's just the humidity.

  • Mmmmmm

  • That is good.

  • That pâté really binds it all together.

  • Mmmm, and that hot sauce really adds a nice flavor.

  • The crunch of the cucumber really kicked it off.

  • And that meat's very flavorful.

  • I also got me some Ha Noi Beer.

  • Cheers!

  • A cold beer, on a hot, humid day like this, so necessary.

  • Ok, so I'm using Uber for the first time in my life.

  • And in Vietnam, of course, everybody drives motorbikes.

  • So they have a "Moto" version, motorbike version.

  • You can just have a car, or a black Uber (Uber Black)

  • And there's even like an SUV request.

  • I'm going to go ahead and do "Moto"

  • Cause it's the cheapest, it's 30,000 VND ($1.32 USD)

  • And that's just a little over one dollar.

  • And it will take me from my AirBNB all the way up to West Lake

  • but on the south side.

  • And that's where the real estate agent will meet me and show me some apartments.

  • So let's see, if I do this... this is my first time, ever.

  • Did it work?

  • Ah ha

  • So it's connecting me.... it says 1 minute, so I'm going to go outside... I've got a driver coming right now.

  • We got pulled over by the police.

  • So I finally made it to my destination.

  • The driver was really nice. Young guy, he spoke English pretty decently.

  • There cops were just harassing him, and he was like "No, fuck that." so he was arguing.

  • And they were going back and forth for a while.

  • I was almost ready to give up and just find a new taxi driver.

  • And eventually, they let him go. They were just like "You know what, just get out of here, young kid, shut up and go."

  • And they let him go, and anyways, it was a nice ride. About 15 minutes.

  • So now I'm waiting for the real estate agent.

  • And going to go check out some places.

  • I don't know if you can tell, but I'm sweating like a mofo!

  • It is soooo humid!

  • Definitely a bad idea to walk around, around noon, in the middle of summer in Vietnam.

  • It is sooo hot!

  • Uh... air temperature, not hot. Humidity, 100%. Maybe even 110%. It's ridiculous!

  • The skies are turning grey. It looks like it's going to do it's daily afternoon downpour

  • so I picked up some cold beer.

  • And I'm going to head back to the AirBNB, chillout on the rooftop, wait for the rain, and cool off.

  • **ahhhhh**

  • Ah, this is necessary.

  • I'm burning up here.

  • It looks like any second it's just going to release all that moisture that's been building up.

  • Was that lightning just now?

  • Maybe somebody's welding?

  • Or it was lightning.

  • or it was both.

  • **sounds of thunder booming** Nope, definitely it was lightning.

  • Okay, so this is called Nem Nuong.

  • I hope I'm saying that right. I'm probably totally not even saying that correctly.

  • Nem nuong.

  • And it's essentially like ground pork with some seasonings and stuff.

  • Wrapped around a stick and then grilled.

  • And as you saw earlier, the lady, she was using little scissors, she was snipping off the little charred pieces.

  • And that is like completely an Asian thing, I guess? I don't know?

  • I've seen that in Korea, time and time again.

  • It's because they believe that the charred pieces will make you sick, especially give you cancer or something like that.

  • **sniffing** Oh god, this... that smoky charred.... flavor.

  • The smell is really nice, it's like BBQ.

  • Now, to my understanding, because this is like minced up meat and

  • and they add other stuff, kind of like Ddeokgalbi in Korea.

  • But they add sugar and other things, and like a binder.

  • What was it... like rice powder or something like that.

  • It's like a binder, and they wrap it around there and let it sit.

  • And then they cook it that way.

  • So I think that's exactly what this is.

  • So let's go ahead and try it.

  • Mmm!

  • Yes, this is essentially Korean Ddeokgalbi on a stick.

  • But in Vietnamese, nem nuong.

  • God, that's so terrible. I'm sorry to all Vietnamese people out there. I am totally not saying it right.

  • You can see the meat and some of the fat glistening in there.

  • And it's just so yummy.

  • My god!

  • For the rest of the night, I'm just going to chill out in the AirBNB.

  • And I also plan on doing some special posts, specifically for my patrons on Patreon.

  • If you don't know what that is, it's a way for you to support me through "pledges"

  • monthly pledges

  • It's totally voluntary, you don't have to do any of it

  • But I'm super, super thankful to those that do.

  • It just means so much to me. Oh man, it just like touches my heart.

  • Like I'm really, really thankful for that kind of support.

  • Alright guys, I hope you enjoyed this video.

  • I'll update you guys once I actually do choose an apartment and I will see you guys in the next video.
