This photo was taken 3 years ago when I took a short-trip to one of the most famous highland of Vietnam. When the sun went down in the city, and the sky got darker an darker; I looked up the sky and saw the rainbow appeared. In the middle of the dawn, the rainbow appeared and washed away all my blue and make me felt better.
As the development of the city, new buildings are coming everyday; they create new face of the city and give it a modern-look. The downfall of the urbanisation is most of the buildings looks so boring and ugly. They are mostly in rectangular shape and covered with glasses from top to bottom.
One of the most eye-catching building in Saigon is Bitexco Financial Tower – also know as the tallest building in town. It has a lotus-like shape and if you watched Avengers movie, you’ll find it has very similar design to Stark Tower in that movie (though The Bitexco did exist first then came the movie). The photo is from the glass ceiling of the retailing area of the building. With a very modern pattern to go with the design of the building, it creates a good combination and also a useful function to get the natural light from outside into the building.

another Daily Prompt with such an interesting topic I Want To Know What Love Is.
I’ve been dating with my love for around 1.5 years. It’s not short but also not long enough to have a so call big-plan-for-tomorrow. I just simply in love with my lover and feel it around me everyday. Honestly, I’m not a romantic person; I’m more like a realistic and very straight-forward to the point. I don’t like romantic dinner, flower, gift, or silly stuffs people normally do. I also don’t need my lover to meet me everyday, it just make me tired and easy to get mad; even more it’s make me think that meeting each other is an obligation not the willingness.
We are both very busy with our work, I always try to save time for my lover but it’s not the same in return. I often got cancellation at the very last minutes from my lover and I turn out to be alone somewhere in the big city. To me, love is just simple. we can meet only once a week or every once every two weeks, but we must make sure it will give us joy, happiness, relax, and it’s time to share our life, work, good things and also “shitty” things. I don’t need a fancy dinner or romantic night, they’re all sucked because people try to make it becomes a so-call “good dream”; but we are living in a messy, fast, crowded city, let’s it be real and accept it. I just need a morning with my lover at a cafeteria, have a little chitchat, enjoy the fresh air of the morning with coffee and tea, then we go to work. It’s real, simple, and good enough.
Love is real, don’t make it become a dream. If you wanna make it a dream, when you “wake-up” someday you will be very disappointed.
regarding the daily prompt topic “landscape”, I wanna share a little story of my daily life.
every time I have free time, I usually think of what I should do and where I should go. sometimes I call my friends to hang out, and most of the times I end up being alone at one of favourite cafeterias. I often choose to sit near the window ,to enjoy my loneliness. The reflection of the light on the glass melt with the reality outside. the light’s reflection, motorbikes, human-beings, neon signs all come together to make a huge picture of busy crowded urban life. I seat behind the window with my book, a cup of cappuccino and music. There is no familiar faces around, just loneliness and me.
people would think that’s a coward moment and no one wanna be in that situation, but me. I really enjoy it and it’s kind of make me release my stress after work, wash away my tiredness of love, get back my life’s balance. through the big window of my favourite cafeteria, I see many things of life and see many things in my mind.
This is the first time ever I join the Weekly Challenge here. For the theme of “from above”, it’s all-time favorite perspective when I take photo. The photo below is my working space at office and what I have at work. I’m working as copywriter & Pr for an e-commerce company in Saigon (or Ho Chi Minh city), Vietnam. I have my beloved macbook, pencil & sticky note to work on my copies; my beat Solo HD to relax and inspire, a tumbler to chill my thirst.
My working space is always the most messy one in the whole office but I love it so much cause it’s show my personalities, my hobbies, my passion. And only From Above can show them all.
Hope you enjoy it!
