"PHO 2010" @ $220 USD
My Vietnam life is just like their noodles. Simple, laid-back, old fashioned, bland & humble. Nevertheless, I love the unique charm Saigon life has to offer :-)

Isn't it ironic? I am not a coffee person but I am here in a coffee nation. I begin to appreciate the Vietnamese culture and life when I changed my perspective and looked at it from a top view...

What a lovely evening of good music, beer + pizza and good art. Few paintings were sold. Not bad for  an opening night. My unsold paintings are currently displayed at Geisha Cafe in Pasteur st. where I work as a weekend chef. I plan to do another one before I leave Saigon. I would also like to thank my Vietnamese, Danish, Russian and English friends who came over but wasn't captured in the photos.

Thanks everyone for the support until next time!

big hug,
