Defying Murphy's Law - My Vietnam Experience

We planned for this trip about 6 months ago when I went back home to Philippines. We are going to travel to Saigon for a holiday. We agreed on the date Nov 29 . It was perfect, we will be there for 5 nights. Their flights booked, 4 months prior. Nothings gonna stop this from happening. The only left to book a flight is me but I have booked our accommodation.

My plan is to fly direct from Aussie and meet them in Ho Chi Min on the 29th. Not possible ,my request for leave for Dec was denied. Plan B, fly to Manila before 29 and fly from Manila to Ho Chi Min. I planned to surprise the group, meet them on the plane if not the airport. My surprise was busted, they found out I am already in Manila. So we agreed to meet at the airport.

I was late to arrive at the airport and the 4 of them already checked in. They told the check in staff that I was coming and ask if they can check me in. Of course we all know that's not allowed but ntheless the staff assigned me a seat and all I need is to present my passport. when I arrive. I can skip the line. Lucky me. I got my boarding pass just like that.

Plane arrive on time, no delays. At the airport my friends got busy exchanging currencies and buying sim card before entering immigration. I was the one hurrying them because their luggages my get left behind. Everyone from our flight have already entered. When I arrived at the immigration counter and presented my passport, they asked for my visa. What? I needed a visa? All these time from the moment we planned it I never thought I needed a visa. I was brought aside to the other counter and was told I will be sent back to Manila on the next plane.

To be continued...

when it rains it pours...but such cannot be the case always...even in a perfect setting, some things can f*cked-up...sometimes the more you attend to details, the more things get messed up..so just let it be and enjoy the most of what is there...
