Vietnamese food @_@
Dear Jo and all friends,
I am very interested in reading your entry and comments. That is really good food for me after a tired working day. Jo, thank you so much for your support in my English. Actually, I am thinking of studying for a Master's in the UK. I really want to find a scholarship so that I can go there to study soon. Because I enjoy working in banking industry very much, so I want to study for a Master's in Banking and Finance. Could anyone help me to find some information about good scholarships in UK? I know most of the scholarships require at least 2 years of experience. Therefore I still try my best to study and work hard to gain more experience so that I can make my dream come true soon. Anyway, I just want to study as soon as possible.
To all friends, thank you again for keep reading my entry. As usual, some of my replies to your comments now:
@Sara: I enjoy reading your comment so much, so keep writing to me as long as you can ^_^.
@Pauline&Ahmed: Thank you so much for showing me my mistakes. I'll try to correct them all and brush up my English.
@Ana Paula: You are so great for reading all of my entries and keep encouraging me. I really want to know more about u :-P
@Douglas Santos&Stevie Boy: In Vietnam now there are more and more people studying Chinese because Chinese is our neighbour country, and there are more and more Chinese companies invest in Vietnam. It's not very diffcult to study, except from the complicated writing.
@Seomon: Thanks for such beautiful words about me!
@Anne: Yes, he is also very interested in keeping contact. He also told me that when he came back to Vietnam last time, he tried to find us according to the telephone numbers we gave him, but he couldn't get in touch with any of us. He still remembered me as the youngest student in the class, but I guess he can't remember my face :-)
@Adek: Let's wait for another chance to meet another Vietnamese girl ^_^
@Mauricio: I'll tell him soon about this blog as a gift for him :)
@Wisarut: I can write Chinese and I am also interested in calligraphy. But I haven't written Chinese for nearly one year, and I forget a lot.
@Van, Mai, Mai Anh: Great to hear from Vietnamese friends here.
@All: Thanks once more for your nice comments and looking forward to read more and more....
And now, another part, actually the main part of today's entry... I'll tell you something about Vietnamese food. Vietnam has the S shape and the country is divided into 3 main parts: The North, the Middle and the South. And each area has its own traditional food and the taste is not the same. In the North we prefer to eat food with little sugar and salt, but Southern people prefer to eat sweet food, nearly all kinds of food have sweet taste. I was born in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam which locates in the North. And Hanoi has so many great kinds of food for you to try.
I like to eat rice noodle very much, and there are so many dishes made from rice noodle. First one is Bun Cha (Rice noodle and Grilled meat):
The pork meat to make "Bun Cha" and the sauce are very important. You eat noodle, meat and raw vegetables together... This is my favourite dish!!!
The second one I'd like to introduce is "Pho", another kind of noodle, eat together with beef, chicken meat, egg...
We often eat "Pho" in breakfast. And in Vietnam,there are even a few people who can't start a day without eating one bowl of "Pho" in breakfast :-). Have any of you ever heard of "Pho 24" - very famous brand of Pho under the structure of franchising shop.
La Vong Fish is also very famous, it is one of the traditional food of Hanoi. Every tourist come here need to try La Vong Fish. It's a kind of roasted fished eat with rice noodle ^_^ and shrimp sause (this has very strong smell but many peole like it).
The next one is the traditional food which we eat on New Year only, it's "Chung Cake". The cake is made of rice, pork and green peas.
When New Year nearly comes, we often prepare and cook these cakes together, as it takes the whole day to wrap and boil these cakes. Many Vietnames who are abroad usually miss the taste of this kind of cake so much, especially when they have to greet the New Year in another country without family and the atmosphere of New Year holiday in Vietnam.
The last but not least that I want to introduce to you is "Noodle Roll"
This is fried beef and raw vegetables wrapped by rice noodle. This is the new dish in Vietnam for about 6,7 years recently but many people like it very much because it is easy to make and suits most people's taste.
Haizzz, it must take me days and days to talk about Vietnamese food. Actually I don't know to choose which one to introduce to you. You know, each country has their own kinds of food... and I feel so difficult to find the words that can express my ideas to tell you how delicious they are!!! You'd better take a trip to Vietnam, and I will be a tour guide to show you around and try every kind of food here ^_^
Hope you will enjoy my entry today. And now, it's time for sleeping... Zzzzzzzz
G9 to you all!
