Welcome to the latest edition of The Victory Formation
Today is a special holiday. After all, it is Martin Luther King Day today. In sports terms, that means a lot of matinee games in the NBA.
Of course, he was the man who championed the Civil Rights Movement and nonviolence.
Meanwhile, like I said last week, I did have my brief 2-day vacation to Ho Chi Minh City. I went with my fellow family members. The days were pretty much checking out the marketplace. But as per Cabbage's advice, I did find a coolie hat. Unfortunately, I really wanted to go inside the museums, but I never got the chance. Hope for a next time. But I did take a lot of pictures during the stay.
