The thing that struck me on this IP address is that it is resolving to "localhost", a name generally reserved for the loopback address 127.0.0.1. I tried a couple other 113.187.0 addresses and they are resolving to localhost.

113.187.0.0/20 is allocated to APNIC (which is why I trust geo-IP about as far as I can kick it).

Here's what APNIC returned :

Unless you had a call going to Vietnam at the time, sounds like something screwy going on.
