To love rainy season in Saigon, for starters, you must be well-sheltered, and preferably snug – a rule of thumb: the more happily ensconced you are, the more you will enjoy the sight and sound of the heavens opening.

Make the mother of all sandwiches. Send a certain someone a text … [Read more...] about How to love rainy season in Saigon

by Nguyen Thuy Binh How many hours a day will my children spend reading books? This is a question I always ask myself because I'm afraid that my children, and many others in big cities, might grow up without developing the habit of reading books as part of their everyday lives. When I was small, I read many children's books, particularly during summer holidays. My mother was strict and didn't allow me to play outside on blazing hot days. Instead, she bought books for me with a view to keeping me at home. In addition, I was handed many older books from my cousin. Most of those books were literature. Naturally, books became my friends and I have developed a book reading habit. Luckily, my husband also has this same reading hobby, and we agree about the importance of reading in our family. We agreed that it was necessary to establish a book reading hobby in our children at a young age. When our sons were in kindergarten we bought them books illustrated with colourful paintings about … [Read more...] about How to grow up with your nose in a book
