I like it very much.
Life on a Honda : very Vietnamese, could be anywhere... first thought about Hanoi, but well it could have been Cantho or Haiphong too.
My only remark would be about the chromatism, since you tried to balance the tungsten lights I cannot find the orangy night colors which are for me a kind of trademark for Vietnam nightly images.

Yep, this closely represents my memory of Saigon; a bustling city with 24hr scooter madness. Nicely played sir.

This one is more compositionally attractive (and more complex) than the previous one, and I like it all the more for it. You have once again managed a certain theatricality that perfeclty captures the mood of these SE Asian nights - simple food, ubiquitous motorbikes (metaphors), whisps of gentle flirting in the air... voila.
