Chuc Mung Nam Moi !

Here I am now, working in Vietnam, for a year or two. A whole new culture, a whole new country to discover :)

Everybody is preparing for Tet (Lunar New Year). My Vietnamese teacher has invited me and a friend spend Tet's eve with her family tonight !

We bought them a little tree with yellow flowers, which Vietnamese people give each other for Tet. A flower market has been set up specially for Tet in the center of Saigon.

I was told that tonight's program will be : eating, drinking, praying the ancestors and karaoke. Excellent program !

Chuc Mung Nam Moi 2009 everyone !

Haha ! That is beacause you are my inspiration Mr Caveman !
I thought the pictures might look nicer with a dark background, though it makes the blog seem a bit gloomy...
Tet's eve was great ! She even thought me how to cook a vietnamese dish !
