Finally, the day has come, when all of VEMBA 1 HCMC members gathered again to enjoy the fruitfulness of 20 month hard work. The hall was full of laughter, happiness among VEMBA people and families. The event closed one chapter of our lives, while opening another chapter ahead of us. Wishing all the best to VEMBA 1 HCMC.

What a wonderful Sunday! Once I scrolled down the road to class (yes, class on Sunday – That’s how we are taking our VEMBA program), I happened to enjoy this free, open-air concert. Sometimes, it was flamenco, the other times it was traditional Vietnamese folk songs. What I got today was a kid band (big one though) who played trumpet. Felt great (before having the final exam today) in my very peaceful and joyful Saigon. 

Almost Vietnamese knew this song in the last 2 years or so. It was a touching story about a Vietnamese oversea girl who found her origin from a song that she herself sang and was broken out in tears. I love the song, the rhythm, the sounds. But yet really came into the lyrics. Recently, I found it from David’s Slideshare. Thanks to David for your great one!

Reading it word by word, it is more appealing about how lovely our Vietnam is! I’m thankful for that. And I got the link to youtube for the song too (from Phi Hung’s comment) performed by Quynh Anh. Beautiful! Hello my Vietnam!

I’ve got introduction for this from my professor at University of Hawaii. Found it good because it helps motivate me to be more positive everyday. It’s quite simple that you’re seeing what you want to see. If you want to see good things, it’s likely that you’re filtering out all the not-good-things :). Enjoy the video and hope you’ll be joining me to the positive community.


Tôi mới mua tên miền này,, vài ngày trước đó. Tuy nhiên, tôi chưa kịp có thời gian làm gì thêm. Có lẽ tôi đã quá bận rộn với công việc, với học hành và gia đình. Thật là kỳ cục, nhưng bạn có thể thấy là một cách tự nhiên, hai chữ “gia đình” lại thường đi sau cuối trong danh sách những việc chúng ta bận rộn. Rất kỳ cục, đúng không? Nhưng nó nghe có vẻ tự nhiên đối với mọi người khi sống cuộc sống thường nhật của chúng ta. Hãy cẩn thận!
