Happy Belated Australia Day & Chúc Mừng Năm Mới cả nhà!

As you all know we celebrated Australia Day last week on 26th January followed by Lunar New Year over the weekend so you can imagine how busy that period was for us, including myself. You know the whole food preparations then continuous feasting & getting food comas, yep which is why I am only posting about it now.

Quite a few of you have been asking me about my background so I thought I’d share a little more about myself here with everyone. I was born in Hong Kong, my nationality is Australian & my heritage is Vietnamese. Both of my parents are from Northern Vietnam so during my junior years (& even until now) I’d meet people who would mock me for being ‘North’. As much as I dislike it, I try not to respond to negativity because I mean.. I just don’t have time for uneducated remarks lol Though, I always do like to put more emphasis on my northern Vietnamese accent just so that if I do come across people who still discriminate then they can distant themselves from me. That way we don’t have to deal with each other, it just saves me the fuss LOl

Anyhoo! I’m incredibly grateful that my parents chose Australia where I now call this country my home, it’s such a great one. I know that sounds very biased, but.. it is haha I came to Australia when I was 4 years of age so no, I do not know more than the few basic greetings in Chinese. However, I’ve become more fluent with my Vietnamese over the years, but I’m still slow when it comes to reading. So! to all my Vietnamese followers, please try to keep your sentences as short as possible LOl I struggle so much trying to read your messages, reading a message feels like going through a novel Lol

I hope you all had a loving, caring & blessing Lunar New Year. Remember to worry less about money & feel good more about what you already have. If you don’t have much, well then you should care-less.
