The First Sign of Spring

Don´t you admire such beauty?


And now, it´s now for some memes. But firstly I have to say a sincere apology to all of the lovely bloggers who have tagged me for several memes. My time for blogging is limited lately, so I hope you all understand for my slow reply…

For this very post, I am replying two memes – `8 random facts about you´ and `The Fantastic 4´. If I remember correctly, I have been tagged by Myriam, Arfi, Wendy and KJ. And yes, I still have some other memes to complete, but it´ll be for another coming post…

Tracking down my memory lane, here are the things I come up with…

4 jobs I´ve had in my life

I have never had a full-time job. But I do hope the following counts as job somehow…

#1 Nanny: I used to take care of my sister and cousins during summer holiday when I was 14-17. Duties included preparing lunch and playing with all of them. Kids can be really naughty, but I love being around them!

#2 Student: This is the longest `job´ that I have had!

#3 Teacher/Assistant lecturer/tutor: Teaching is something I particularly enjoy. However, my idea of teaching and education has changed a lot ever since I start teaching seriously in university. For some reasons, I feel the real lack of teaching value in some places, and that does disturb me.

#4 Waitress: for a very short period but totally enjoying since I learn a lot. And the people I met there were a lovely crazy bunch!

4 places I have lived

I don´t think I can come up with 4 places as yet. I grew up in Hanoi, came to Melbourne for study and have lived in Melbourne mostly ever since.

4 places I have been on holiday

#Beijing: A place with adorable and timeless historic value. I would love to vist Beijing again for a longer time.

#Bangkok: Lovely people, lovely food and traffic jam! Oh, the orchids there were nice!

#Singapore: where I first tasted and fell in love with durian!

#Ho Chi Minh City: my beloved energetic southern city.

4 of my favourite foods

#Noodles & Pasta: I can live on these forever

#Asian Greens: I can’t live without these. My meal can’t complete without some greens.
#Bread & Pizza: Right, I am a big carb person.
#Chocolate: one of my ultimate weakness.

4 places I would rather be right now

#Back home in Hanoi with my parents and sister!

#In a small café near Hoan Kiem lake and enjoy a small cup of Vietnamese coffee with all my friends.

#In some café along Ormond Rd then a long walk along Elwood Beach with my camera.

#At home, with some light music, a cuppa and a book.

    I can still remember my very first spring in France … it’s so beautiful to walk down the street and see flowers blooming at every corner. You just feel like life is so beautiful and wonderful that you forget all your problems.
