I’m Vietnam terminalia catappa, people also call me tropical almond but I like terminalia catappa better. I’m seven and a half months old. Thanks to sunshine, rain, wind… and chị Hương’s care and love, my leaves are green and my stems are strong. I’ll be taller and bigger than that, to bring joy and happiness to people. I’m so happy now.
I have several brothers and sisters too. All of us come from the seeds chị Hương found under a Flamboyant tree and a Libidibia ferrea tree, probably brought there by the squirrels from the huge old terminalia catappa trees across the street. Đọc tiếp “Who am I?” – part 2→

I’m a bus traveller, in or outside of Vietnam wherever I’ve lived. I’ve commuted by bus since I was a highschool girl. Many people keep asking me how can I survive without a motorbike in a country of tens of millions motorbike like Vietnam, where big cities of Saigon and Hanoi are constantly packed with traffic jam.
I simply don’t enjoy driving. Yes, that’s the fact. Driving makes me tired. Though, from time to time I do have to combine both buses and Grabbike when I do not have enough time to get where I need to be. Commuting by bus gives me rest, even if I got stuck in heavy traffic, it is still way better than sitting on a motorbike “eating” terrible smoke discharged from the vehicles. You surely know that once you’ve experienced crazy traffic in Vietnam. If you want to know how crazy is that craziness, simply do Google > Image for “traffic in Vietnam”.
