Healthy Liquor

I get restless and impatient whenever I get stuck at the airport for a few hours with nothing else to do apart from reading a book and occasional people-watching. Travelling in Vietnam during Vietnamese new year is kind of tricky.  It’s a combination of travelling overnight on an overloaded bus and getting stuck at the airport (which happens to be in the middle of nowhere) for a few hours.  I got so impatient while at the Nha Trang airport [waiting for our flight to Hanoi] and decided to have a look around for some souvenirs. There was not a single thing that really caught my attention. I was about to give up and head back to my seat when I found these very interesting authentic Vietnamese wines.  

They always say that a glass of red wine is good for the heart.  Yes, I  can drink two or more occasionally, I’ve been able to down a bottle in just  one sitting too.. but that was a big mistake, I ended up having migraine at work the following day.  I’m not into red wines I must admit 🙂    How about this  special and rare kind of wine that is believed to have so many health benefits? Can I drink it?  My answer is a big ……..” HELL NO”

When I saw these bottles on the shelves, I could imagine the snakes jumping out of the bottles 🙂 Well, im scared of snakes. How on earth can someone drink this liquor? Just looking at these pictures now gives me goose bumps already  lol

There were hundreds of these weird-looking bottled stuff but I really couldn’t take it anymore. Just took three photos and went back to my seat.
