In my trip to US early December, I had a chance to dine in a 176-year-old restaurant. What an impressing number. The restaurant is a family-run business with 5-6 generations on it already. The food was great and I liked it a lot with fresh and delicious seafood, well-served in a cold night outside, but warm inside.
The food is good, no surprise. Yet, my surprise was not the food itself, it was another one. It came to my interest once I overheard the main waiter, who hosted us, introduced about the restaurant and what they are proud of.
He stood there right behind my back, with his voice full of energy, talking about the food, the restaurant and his recommendation to us about wine and food for the night. You can’t miss the passion through his voice. Xem chi tiết…
I wrote this as part of the conversation I have maintained internally with KMSers at KMS Technology Vietnam. I and think it’s worth to share it here to everyone as well. Now, I know why I had the urge to do this slide convincing people to read before: Why do you have to read?. And the result has come after all.
We are starting the long weekend and the long holiday very soon. And I would like to share with you an email I got last weekend (see below). A moving message from one of my friends (I translated it from Vietnamese to English to be consistent with the content here). Happiness certainly comes from the moment you know that you can help others. Xem chi tiết…
Last week, after sharing some suggestions to deal with stress, I got a few interesting questions and thoughts from one of my staff that I want to share with you here, along with my thoughts. These are not easy to answer questions for anyone I would say. The other issue is that some things that work for this one person may not work for the other person. Xem chi tiết…
Suddenly, got this meaningful quote in the morning, once turning on my music channel: “The truth will set you free…”
Yes, freedom is from knowing and understanding the truth (not the truth or justice that you see in the news – those are too noisy)… Remember that freedom is the path to happiness, to liberate you.
And that truth is of the meaning of your life, that you want to know. Do you know it?
If you don’t, sit down and meditate. That’s a way of life, a very happy one. You’ll see the light at the end of the tunnel.
May you be well, happy and peaceful.
This is the note of a happy man, writing to his co-workers on the 7th anniversary of the company called KMS Technology, which he co-founded and has been part of it since then.
Dear all KMSers,
I got Quynh’s (Xuka Lam) status posted here in the morning, reminding me that today is the official anniversary day for KMS, the 7th. And we’re turning 8 from today, officially.
And then, once I viewed all of the photos captured in our YEP2015 last Friday, it easily overwhelmed me. Xem chi tiết…
Whether you want it or not, believe it or not, the you today is always different than the you yesterday. It doesn’t need to be New Year to change yourself. You’re already changed in each and every minute.
So, be the new you and be the change in you each and everyday. Change for the better, change for happiness, change for loving kindness. Things like Happy New Year should be a great reminder to look back and change. Do it now.
If you’re confused and don’t know what to do next, you can sit down, meditate for 10 mins to calm your mind down. And that’s when you start to see what to do next. Go meditate.

It’s always special once we do this on the stage in front of KMSers. It’s always great moment to watch again and again. We are not professional singers, dancers. But we are very committed to go through all this as a token of appreciation to KMS family.
This is the opening speech I prepared and delivered at KMS Year End Party, just happened last Friday. It’s a bit of beautiful thing about KMS that I would love to share with you all.
It’s always a great pleasure to be here on the stage to start one of our biggest parties in the year, the Year End Party, to really say goodbye to 2014. Once we look back, it’s easy to see that time is flying fast. And yes, we are here, ready for 2015. Xem chi tiết…
Thanksgiving is something far away from Vietnam. Yet, as I am working with my partners and clients in the US everyday, it’s become part of the culture that I also look forward to it every year.
While I don’t do turkey or stuff here, in #Saigon, there is one thing I would do on this occasion. As the name of the holiday “Thanksgiving”, I would love to take this chance to do one thing: giving thanks… Words certainly can’t express everything. But at least, it conveys the message.

In a lunch-time discussion with one of my friends today, we have talked about what would it be for an ideally happy job… What an interesting question? And as I usually see, if we don’t ask, we don’t find the answer. So, what is it, Mr. Ideally Happy Job? Xem chi tiết…
