Bingy-bongy

.

In the early evening were walking along the narrow streets of Hoi An, Vietnam and heard live music coming from a small square. There was a band with traditional instruments and a woman, finely dressed in red, singing a song in Vietnamese. A small group of locals sat in front, listening intently. It seemed as if she was repeating words and phrases; “bingy bingy bongy bongy”. Slightly odd.

Then she paused, reached into a small box, pulled out and then held aloft a small bamboo placard. She then went off again, singing the bingy bongy song loudly. People in the crowd excitedly waved tickets; We finally figured it out, it was Vietnamese bingo!

For the past few days now, we have had the bingy-bongy song stuck in our heads.
