"Frugal meal" with "un-frugal host"
 with Phi

Fried fish in Nha Trang is number one. I consider it the best dish, served with rice, boiled vegetable and cucumber. I really love Vietnamese cuisine, simple but moreish, and delicious. Specially no fat ^^ very good for those who wanna diet. Phi said that her company serves dinner for vegetarians as well... I am not vegetarian but I might be back to enjoy vegetarian food. Phi is a nice girl, she shy a little bit but very careful and enthusiastic. Her family is very friendly. Them all welcome me and give me a lot of kindness. I am moved :) Thanks for a warm dinner.
