July Oi!

 photo 20130705_181133_zpsf05e7ffa.jpgOi has once again came up with an eye-catching cover featuring a circus folk from the HCMC Circus performing at the Gia Dinh Park in Phu Nhuan.

 photo 20130705_181406_zpse9fad11f.jpgI found the stories of the people behind the circus quite interesting and inspiring. I’m hoping we can bring Sam to one of their shows before school starts in August.

On the food front, my favorite restaurant, Scott and Binh’s is featured too! We were just there last week for dinner as a send off for a friend going back to Manila. As usual, we all had our fill. I just love the food there.

This article was pieced together through the help of my mom-friends, Ruth and Armi who weathered the Saigon heat with me to explore the streets of Phu My Hung. 🙂

If you can’t find a copy of Oi or just plain lazy to get off your butt, you can just download here.

Enjoy a serving of Oi this month of July!
