New look and motto:TheComical Hat just loves the new psychedelic Dali-esque rainbow coloured peacocks swooping across planet earth like creatures out of Flash Gordon (the film like) on the homepage for Vietnam Airlines and we also love the new motto “Weaving the Sky” — we have no idea what it means, but it sounds risque yet homely. Like flying in a fighter pilot’s plane with your granny as a co-pilot. Smoke me a kipper lads, I’ll be back for breakfast!
Under the bridge that day: This truck driver tried to drive under the Chuong Duong bridge at 2am on Saturday morning. Didn’t work out for him.
Slice ’em up: This womandoctor quack uses a razor blade no matter WHAT your illness is!“[She] never finished primary school or attended any medical course but she receives many patients. Some mornings there are more than 20 patients waiting outside her house by 7 a.m. Xinh said she was once cured by this method and her doctor had advised her to use it on others. “It’s like scratching someone where they’re itchy,” Xinh said, recounting the doctor’s explanation. “I’ll cut someone on the head if they have a headache, on their back if they have a backache.”
Autumnality: We just love leg warmers, scarves, a burst of afternoon sunshine, huddling together on a bicyle — there is nothing wrong with mùa thu Hà Nội, says us. Feel the romance. Write the poetry. Sing a ballad. Love thy fellow man. The Comical Hat is celebrating by spending the next few days in “the Great Outdoors”, that’s right, we’re shunning the internet and braving the offline world and we know, it’s crazy, anything can happen out there and we may never be back, though most likely, we will be, because we love the online world, blogging, chat rooms, emoticons :-), and you… especially you, you big internet lovin’, blog readin’ nerd you.
