London Fog Tea

London Fog Tea

I am back in Hanoi to unite with my family for Tet holiday after almost a year of separation due to Covid-19. Foggy and rainy is the typical weather in Hanoi in this season. With a shade of grey covering the entire city, it takes a strong mind and a deep soul to recognize this taciturn beauty. Every time when it rains and gets cold like this, I am imagining myself drinking a warm cup of London Fog Tea while looking out the window. Although I have never been to London but I think for those who have been through the rainy weather of Hanoi in winter, you wouldn’t miss London so much.

I was told to be quite easy-going when it comes to my ability to drink. I don't get addicted to any type of beverages but rather to have a sip or two when I am happy. I like to make coffee and enjoy a great cup of coffee, but if I get to choose then a cup of tea, perhaps, any kind would be my drink of choice. I like the idea of drinking a cup of tea that makes me feel more calm and relaxed.

A day in the life of an event planner

A day in the life of an event planner

As an planner, I’ve spent most of my 10 year-experience to organize business events, but I also had 2 years working as a wedding & special events planner. While being actively involved in multiple organizations, networking events have become a way of life for me. I’ve been organizing events and attending events all at the same time.

Things that you don’t get to choose

"People transfer onto current relationships the conflicts and assumptions generated in childhood relationships. They keep assuming that they are in the same constellation of roles and so repeat patterns of behavior. Most people experience their siblings, their fathers, their mothers and so on on the job. Everybody has transference; the question is, how trapped are they in those patterns?"
