Dedicated to my special English teacher – My mom

Once upon a time, there were two twins sister who was sitting in the english class with their wide open eyes immersing in each fairy tail that was told by her English teach by her creative method to teach english.

Yep my first english lessons was taught lively and attractive like that, always began with “Once upon a time there were a king and a queen…”, “One upon a time, there were a princess…”. My teacher is a very creative teacher, she had a very amazing method to make her class lively and attracted her student completely. She use a red board, and stick on it some pictures to illustrate for each scene of the story, each part ended for each class gave us a feeling of eager to continue to the next part, so most of us never want to miss the next class to know what was going to happen to the princess or the prince we love. I was going through many fairy story of Anderson by that impressive way. The sea princess (now we know was called Mermai the Little Mermaid), The Frog prince, Cinderella, The tin soldier….I remember all fairy story that she has taught us until now.

Once upon a time, there was a teacher who attracted student by her amazing teaching method like that. All students still remember all her wonderful lesson, still love her and respect her although times flies, althought life change so much. She is my first English teacher, she is my Mom.

Thank you for giving me such precious moment to be your best student mom. Thank for all. I love you.


Awaken Passion

*Note: This is a writing that I posted long time ago in Vietnamese with the title “Đánh thức đam mê”, today I would like to rewriting in English. Just for fun, just for my followers who can’t read Vietnamese and just for me to live back one more time with my passion 😉


Life with full of anxieties and responsibilities seems to wipe all my youth dreams and passionate. Sometimes when staying alone I often wonder to myself what is my presently passionate. Please with my own current life, together with hubby and my 2 angels,all the dreams, the passionate of the past seem to have been folded and hid into a certain corner. Then I, myself even forgot where I hid them.

Came across the show “Dancing with the Star”, the “You’re my everything” performed by Minh Hang gave me a feeling like there’s something have just been awakened inside me. I saw myself was performing on the stage, was immersed in the melody of the song, forgot myself just for the role of the performances. That’s exactly the feeling I once had each time I stepped on to the stage when I was a young girl, the time when I, a naive little girl dreaming to become a ballet dancer in the future. Right now all that feelings return very true inside me.

And I realized that I had once loved the limelight so much, I miss the feeling of happiness as being incarnation in each character, I miss the music, I miss my audience, I miss ….

Thank you for a fortuitous evening show, thank you all that gave me chance to live back in a few moment with the passion which I already forgotten of my youth bygone.

A Happy ant-family

Mommy Mommy I just saw a big ant (red ant), and I think it must be Mom ant.

My 4 years old daughter – Chou ran toward me and took me to go with her to the big tree where she saw a big ant. Then she whispered: “Here is Mom ant, so where is Dad ant? Maybe he is at work”

Then she walked around the tree to find and saw other big ant, she shouted: “Ah, here is Dad ant”, at the same time she saw 2 little ants, pointed at them and said “they are brother and sister ants. This is a happy family”

Then added ” I also have my own happy family”
