This afternoon, when I was so chilling out with my playlist on the way to work, a random rain started to pour down without any prior signal. At first, I was too lazy to put on my raincoat, so I kept stabilizing my riding speed under the rain. Normally, in the similar scenario, I have… Continue reading [Day 23] Taking a break
This morning, I played a new song called "Sấp mặt luôn" on Youtube. This belongs to the soundtracks of "Tấm Cám - Chuyện Huỳnh Lập Kể" - another movie viewed from an angle differing from the conventional. Parts of the lyric appear like this: "So ironic that the step-mother always gets targeted as an antagonist But… Continue reading [Day 21] Tấm Cám – Another untold story
Last week, when I was about to leave RMIT for home, my colleague suddenly asked me a question: "Tuan Anh, friends or relatives, who first?". In no time, my answer was: "Friends!" It struck both of us with my answer, leading to a flow of thinking afterwards. When I was young, from 10 to 14… Continue reading [Day 16] Friends or Relatives?
I thought and was about to explore this topic a few days ago, but I was afraid that one story was not powerful and evident enough to exemplify the point I am going to make. Therefore, I decided to wait for some days to encounter a couple more happenings in my life. Luckily, 3 stories… Continue reading [Day 11] All about taking side
Two days ago, I accidentally dropped my phone from a 1-meter high table to the ground. At first, I thought the phone was still okay because no cracks were found. Later, when I turned it on, the inner screen got severely damaged as I could see the blurred fragments from the inside. To be honest, I… Continue reading [Day 9] Just a broken phone, or more?

Anyway, even today is only my 1st day, something could be drawn out and I do hope it gives you some information for self-reflection after reading the… Continue reading [Day 7] A wake-up call
To tell you the philosophy behind the title with more ease, let me tell you a story about my eating today. I came to work quite early, at around 4.45 in the afternoon (which was 15 minutes earlier than usual). People seemed so questionably stunned as to keep asking me: "Why do you go to… Continue reading [Day 4] Enough is better
Today, I chose to stay in a new coffeeshop hoping that any idea would pop up unexpectedly. In half an hour, nothing showed up as a pusher for my today topic. Then I looked around and suddenly caught a glimpse of a Korean girl, I think, with a panama hat giving herself a smoke of cigarette.… Continue reading [Day 3] Ever thought of smoking, even once?
During the day, I thought of so many ideas for the topic of today writing. Clearly, I stopped by the street for a couple times when riding my sister to her school this afternoon to write down what popped into my head. To be honest, I am truly a Dory so it's better to jot… Continue reading [Day 2] Solution-oriented, yay or nay?
Let me retell the story of yesterday in a much funnier tone and mood. As you might know, Duolingo is a language hub for everyone who would like to learn the most of the 2nd language besides their mother tongue. As with a solid foundation of English proficiency, I used to spend some time studying… Continue reading [Day 1] The perk of playing with easiness on Duolingo
