Vietnam Is The Next Tourist Destination

Vietnam was my Interior Design Thesis Paper. Chosen randomly from a bag, it was not by choice. Vietnam is the war zone, which is basically why we have heard so much of Vietnam. But what is Vietnam?

When I went to do my research on Vietnam I found the Embassy to be unmanned and creepy. Since we really don’t need a Visa to go there, the embassy is nothing but a stand with a couple of brochures and when I say a couple, I meant two pamphlets.

But today they captured the garments industry, making them the next Korea and they have great discounts on airline tickets and tour packages. Funny because they really don’t have much to offer from what I researched on back in college. They don’t have malls, nor great sandy beaches. But they do have historical landmarks and a fantastic culture that beats American diversity with their yin and yang east meets west cultural beauty.

Notes on Mok’s Post-Christening Celebration

I am really happy that hubby and I managed to hold a post-christening celebration despite of a limited budget and short time in preparing. The requirements for my baby’s baptism was swiftly done while the preparation for the food for the sponsors, relatives and visitors took more than half a day to finish.

Hubby’s family was in-charge of the food preparation. They started slicing the ingredients at late night and finished just hours before the event itself. There were around 20 tables dressed up in blue 72 inch round table cloth for the people to sit on and a long buffet table on the middle of it. There was even a videoke machine that lightened up the celebration. Overall, it went well. I am just so happy that my baby is now baptized.
