...[br] [br] Hahahahaha ... one of my friends used to be the manager of Marriott in HCM ... does it count? [br] [br] Other than that, the noodles (Pho) and also the "boat people" issue back in the 70's and 80's ...
I'm wearing my black pajamas.
Here's what I've heard/learned over the years, as a white guy who grew up around an immigrant community full of them:
They really, really hate Western "me love you long time" jokes, they've got a sharp, vulgar sense of humor, they're proud and tend to the materialistic side, they're seriously into singing, they take too many showers, they all want to be white (as in skin color, not race), they're slightly crazy if you date them too young, their dads are scary, their moms all run nail salons, and at some point or another in their lives, they all get really into painting. They seem possessive & jealous, but that's just because Western guys don't know how to read their signals. They trust horoscopes, and get very, very angry if you call them Cambodian or Laotian. And even though all the Cambodian, Vietnamese, and Laotian guys hang out and be Asian together, the women tend to hang out with their own country's people or pick a clique/social identity in high school that accords with an American identity and stick to it until they're about 25-30, at which point they revert to being "Vietnamese" and try to marry a doctor or a lawyer.
All Vietnamese girls, during the summer, wear white tank tops and baggy army pants all the time, and in the winter, it's skintight flaring jeans and layered black tops under those poofy pillow jackets. They would rather die than be caught in lace. They have awesome hair and love eye shadow and piercings and rings.
I obviously have no clue about them outside the US or in China, but...that's what I know.
Oh, and they all love yippy dogs and hate cats.
Vietnam the country itself: It's full of short people and drugs, but incredibly beautiful, wild, and has some of the most hard-drinking, hard-partying people anywhere on earth. Everyone has a relative in every province, northerners don't hate the government but don't like it, southerners hate the government period, and everyone would rather live anywhere than Ho Chih Minh City if they got the chance, because it's ugly as sin.
It's really hot, really tropical, and bugs and snakes and scorpions will kill you if you look at them funny. Northern & southern dialects of the language are really, really different, and people sometimes have to communicate by writing, because they have no way to talk otherwise. It's cheap and everyone rides bikes.
Lol , where did you take that information ? The northern and southern ' languages are about the same . Just sheng diao is different .
A guy who backpacked through Vietnam told me. I have no idea if he was bullshitting or not. I did this post completely without fact-checking, so what I said may be incredibly wrong. That's seriously a stream-of-consciousness recollection of everything I know about Vietnam.
they don't reply friendly PM? :P
@Father of Boring:
It's full of short people and drugs: Short people - lol maybe true...compare to Beijing. I'm tiny in Beijing but in my country im average . Drug- Not a lot, at least I dont see people selling them on the street at night like in Sanlitun .
Incredibly beautiful, wild: Yes
and has some of the most hard-drinking, hard-partying people anywhere on earth. : No comment , but Vietnamese men drink really A LOT. >< especially Southern people.
Everyone has a relative in every province, northerners don't hate the government but don't like it, southerners hate the government period: Hahaha Maybe .
and everyone would rather live anywhere than Ho Chih Minh City if they got the chance, because it's ugly as sin: This is wrong , everyone tries to get to live in big cities like Hanoi , Ho Chi Minh
It's really hot, really tropical, and bugs and snakes and scorpions will kill you if you look at them funny. LOL, It is true . But they dont know if you look at them funny or not , they still bite.
Northern & southern dialects of the language are really, really different, and people sometimes have to communicate by writing, because they have no way to talk otherwise. Wrong
It's cheap and everyone rides bikes: True
They are very nice hard working people.
haha Nicole thanks but why do think so?
I had a friend in Vietnam.
Had quite lot of Vietnamese friends around me in France. Will be going soon to Hanoi to get my own feeling of the city and around !
Vietnamese coffee is fucking awesome. I love those little drip pots on top of the mugs, and the sweetened condensed milk in lieu of cream and sugar.
@单独子儿 (随便叫兽) : oh yeah, do u know any vietnamese coffee shop in Beijing?
I'm afraid you'd know better than I, @Michelle.
As a side note, I found Le Petite Saigon to be rather disappointing.
There's a little Vietnamese restaurant near Jianguomen subway. From exit B, turn left and keep walking until the second crossing, then make another left.
how was it ? gonna try it soon thanks !
The food was just so-so (I'm not altogether fond of Vietnamese food in general), and their coffee was nice, I guess.
Vietnamese cuisine is delicious, Ao Dai is fabulous.
However, I always sense the nation reeking of hidden brutality and cruelty, sorry to say, it is probably because of the rumors of Vietnamese War and their overseas mafia, no offense.
@ Pear Blossom: lol the girls you know were in the war or in the movie something? They fought with guns?
They are annoying ;)
@ Ndie" tieschant or whatever it spells !!!
Vietnam was the first country to beat the USA in War... Olé sus huevos!!!

@Persephone Tsang : I never heard of oversea vietnamese mafia rumor ? what is it about?
@$W@G : ahhaha so how do Vietnamese look like which is not like me?
In Sydney, the vietnamese aera near Broadway is not safe ;)
(continued) ... which part of Broadway? ... or have you got it mixed up with Cabramatta? I like the Vietnamese restaurants there, but it is a bit far to drive :)
