The weather in Brisbane today is outrageously hot, and I'm feeling so flat and lethargic. Big sigh :-(
I've got so many things to do and no energy - I need a miracle herbal cure. Wish I was back in Saigon! I could take a trip to 'D Hai Thuong Lan Ong (the area of traditional herb shops). Here, you can purchase a natural remedy to fix any ailment or condition - now matter how big or small.
The sights and the aromas are like nothing I've ever seen before, and its such a busy place!!.
Each store has sacks and bags of goodies all spread on the pavement, and they have the very cute Chinese medicine chests which I love. To my untrained eye, all the stores seem the same to me - I wonder how you choose who to buy from!
This area is in the Cholon (China town) area, near some of the fabulous pagodas I blogged about recently (click here for pics).
Maybe, I just need a cup of green tea and a lie down ...... Its almost the weekend - help!!
