Teacher Day!

A warmly greeting to all Vietnamese teachers from a tricky schoolboy! I wish you all a good health, happiness on this special occasion.

Personally thanks to my high school teachers who had been so patient and forgiveness, cared so much for my studying, encouraging me much when I was there. I wish I might have paid more attention on those cares that I supposed to.

Happy Vietnamese Teacher Day!

Oh, actually one: it’s the way it is!

Getting too old?

Tuan - 32 year-old-manPlanned to write a long post to describe how I feel to be 32 but words were hard to be out. So many feelings but basically was ‘peaceful’.

Maybe I have spent too much time on travel so my desire now is just like an old man who looking for a quiet place, stay away from bars, party and noisy places. The foots do not accept that, it seems like I will be so bored after settle at home or office for a while. And I know that it’s time I have to travel somewhere again to get the working feeling back.

32 years, almost half of that on the road. Seeing different people, experiencing many different lives, now look back, I feel more ‘speechless’, even boring with daily conversations. It is still good things that I still love to listen and seemed like I prefer to do so. Am I too old?

Happy Birthday to me. 32 years OLD man!

Happy Women’s Day

All the best wishes to women on this special day. Best wishes to my mum, my sisters, readers and all friends who greatly have been supporting me whenever I feel good or down. I catch this chance to express my appreciation to you all and wish you a good health, happiness and success!

Thank you and Happy Women’s Day – 8th March 2011

OZ OZ OZ! I really need your help!

I am looking for a couple from Australia name Angela and David who had traveled to Vietnam around 1998 or 1999. I had met them when I was working at a hotel in Hanoi old quarter called Ngoc Diep Hotel during above period. What I remember is Angela was a teacher and based in Sydney Australia and David worked in somewhere related to astronomy but I can’t remember his living location. Angela now could be about 35 years old and David could be about 40. We traveled to North West of Vietnam by motor bike trip about 12 days in total from Hanoi to Yen Bai then Sapa – Bac Ha – Lai Chau – Dien Bien Phu – Hoa Binh and Hanoi. I remember David got sick in Bac Ha and Sapa.
I have tried to find them in social media networks but no success. They were such a wonderful people, taught me heaps of things in life and they were the first people encouraged me to do tourism work. I think I own them a lot. Email contact was still much strange in Vietnam that time so I did not have their contact and completely lost when I moved out the hotel I used to work.

I need your help, especially people from Australia, please referring this message to them or help me to spread message to someone else at your convenience. I really appreciate your kindness.

Here are photos that we took during our trip.
