CV Nguyen Bao Nhu Quynh (Aug15-14) 3
Hi. My name is Quynh. I live in Saigon. I love to read and like to write. People usually say that I’m quite mature for my age. I love books, information pills coffee, pharmacist wine, malady seafood, good movies and secluded beaches. I spend a lot of time thinking and I have a fondness for abstract ideas. I am also a copywriter.

This blog is a collection of my writings, my thoughts, and inspirational things that I come across. Usually they are inspired by bouts of creativity or hours of thinking. Read me deeper than what I write. I hope you enjoy what you read and feel free to leave a word if you want to.

Thank you.

Relics of a bygone era

I grew up in a different type of family, compared with most of the peers around me. We have a unique history and many years of culture behind us. It’s quite natural that I’ve always felt lonely amidst the society I’m living in.

The songs that I grew up listening to, the habits and etiquettes taught and nurtured at home, the hobbies and pastimes, the thoughts I have, are usually different from everyone around me. I used to find that discrepancy strange when I was a kid, but now, I think it’s normal.

In recent times, quite a few Vietnamese people are raising concerns and objection to the reconstruction of the city. In a developing country like Vietnam, those changes are inevitable. Our history of developments is full of ups and downs and hindrances along the way. Therefore I find it quite natural that the development of Vietnam will not be a constant and stable one, but rather staccato.

The disappearance of old historical buildings is only the tip of the iceberg, in my opinion. What’s gone has long been gone. Can a building withstand the force when the ideology has long succumbed, when the zeitgeist has changed?

I’m not entirely joking when I said there’s a unique ‘species’ of Vietnamese facing extinction. Let’s think about a certain group of Vietnamese people of the past, the ones you might have read about, or you might have known some, you might have grown up with some, you might have known them as ‘the other side’, you might consider them your opposites. They belong to a bygone era with bygone thoughts and bygone ideologies. How difficult it is to keep the buildings when the ideology has gone?

Relics of a bygone era

I grew up in a different type of family, compared with most of the peers around me. We have a unique history and many years of culture behind us. It’s quite natural that I’ve always felt lonely amidst the society I’m living in.

The songs that I grew up listening to, the habits and etiquettes taught and nurtured at home, the hobbies and pastimes, the thoughts I have, are usually different from everyone around me. I used to find that discrepancy strange when I was a kid, but now, I think it’s normal.

In recent times, quite a few Vietnamese people are raising concerns and objection to the reconstruction of the city. In a developing country like Vietnam, those changes are inevitable. Our history of developments is full of ups and downs and hindrances along the way. Therefore I find it quite natural that the development of Vietnam will not be a constant and stable one, but rather staccato.

The disappearance of old historical buildings is only the tip of the iceberg, in my opinion. What’s gone has long been gone. Can a building withstand the force when the ideology has long succumbed, when the zeitgeist has changed?

I’m not entirely joking when I said there’s a unique ‘species’ of Vietnamese facing extinction. Let’s think about a certain group of Vietnamese people of the past, the ones you might have read about, or you might have known some, you might have grown up with some, you might have known them as ‘the other side’, you might consider them your opposites. They belong to a bygone era with bygone thoughts and bygone ideologies. How difficult it is to keep the buildings when the ideology has gone?

I’ll just begin with a cliche: It is hard to gain customer’s loyalty, click but it is easy to lose it.

One of my favorite eateries in Saigon is Tango Juice. In my opinion, they serve honest food. The restaurant has a wide portfolio of choices for you to choose from: ranging from simple sandwiches, delicious multi-grain breads, pastas, salads, to specialities of different cuisines (Thai, Mexican, Vietnamese etc) Their juice bar has various healthy options and they taste yummy.

Since we’ve discovered Tango Juice they have been serving us delicious, healthy, honest food. I hate pretentious food where they try to trick you into thinking their presentation is better, while in fact I tend to look into the core of things. Tango Juice’s customer service is also very good, to the point that they remember my voice and my name and deliver to our door quickly.

Once in a while, I have a less-than-happy experience. It’s because of their record of consistent quality and their ability to satisfy a demanding client like me that sometimes, when things drop from usual standard a little bit, I feel startled.

Note that I feel startled, not disappointed, not angry, not dissatisfied, not to the point that I switch.

One of the key things in the business of service, especially the food industry, is that you have to make it your first priority to gain customer loyalty. Food is a fickle matter. People eat based on their cravings and their moods and their needs. To gain customer loyalty in food, in my opinion, is harder than the status-seeking industry like watches, fashion, perfumes.

What Tango Juice did right was that they gained my loyalty to the point that I’m willing to expand my boundaries for them. Once in a while I’ve experienced something not so good, but I’m willing to give them second chances. Why? A few points:

– Consistently good food (They have proved their ability to provide quality, therefore I have developed trust in them)

– Prompt and honest service (They answer my questions and respond to my complaints instead of denying them; They deliver food to the door as soon as possible)

– They have shown their core of the business to me (Healthy & Honest) and that core speaks to me personally.

All these make me think about the advertising industry. Too often we complain that clients have no sense of loyalty and just like to complain, while in fact, perhaps we haven’t shown them reasons why they should not do that. Why they should not switch, why they should discuss instead of walking away, why they should listen instead of ignoring us. The beauty of good service is not that the client will be happy all the time, but that in those rare times when he’s not happy because of something we do, he can let it pass, and still remain loyal to us.

Just over 4 months ago I was a bride-to-be. Now that I’m thinking about it, page all the memories and the emotions are still new and fresh, flooding back to me all at once.

Brides, you will panic. But you will love it, nevertheless. If you don’t love it, probably you shouldn’t be getting married 😉

Days and weeks before the wedding can feel overwhelming and almost as if you can never get anything done right, and on time, and up to standards. Your groom will be with you but in essence a wedding is like a bride’s child. You need to love it and think carefully about what you want and do it, after discussing with your husband to be.

You will be emotionally packed on the day. No matter how much preparation you have done, emotions will come flooding over your whole body and soul. We did a lot of preparation to the tiniest, most minute details of the set-up, the program, even contingency plans. But never could I plan for the emotions I would be feeling on the day.

Vietnamese brides – Walking down the stairs at your parents’ place to the altar for the traditional morning ceremony could be the longest and shortest and most exciting and somewhat frightening walk in your life. I never knew how I did it. I felt like I was floating and some force of energy was carrying me through. Next thing I know, people sitting at tables were looking at me, smiling. And tears were on my cheeks.

You will feel a short of breath as these emotions overwhelm you. You can take a look at your husband (I took a look at Steve and he smiled and my heart just melted and I think I cried even more 🙂 but believe me, your emotions will be strong.

You will forget a lot of things so you should write things down. And give the list to at least 1 person to help you with things. I gave the list to my maid of honour, my best friend, and my make-up artist. Those people are like cushions of comfort to help you get through the day being yourself, gorgeous and happy.

Your groom is going to be nervous as well, so don’t expect him to hang around or wait on you hand and foot at all times. Let him enjoy his moments as well.

Remember to live the day slowly. Many brides I talked to before the wedding said the day went by too fast, in a blink of an eye. I knew that, so I prepared by telling myself to savour every moment, slow it down, enjoy every single detail. Try to take photos with your eyes instead of just smiling for the camera. Try to talk to people instead of just listening to their congratulations. That’s how we did ours.

When you walk down the aisle you won’t be able to hear the bells ringing or notice the flower arrangements or how many people turn up for the wedding. You will just be able to see your path and your groom and your parent(s) next to you. So ask your parents or whoever walking you down the aisle to hang on YOU tightly and help you walk.

Your voice will shake when you exchange vows and you will experience that momentary glimpse of blankness. My hands were trembling uncontrollably but that’s the beauty of it. Everything I did on that day, my body and your soul will remember them forever.

Sit down and have a bite to eat, something to drink. Act normal amongst your guests. They are there to celebrate with you. Not there to look at you as if you’re a museum artefact. Eat, drink, laugh, dance.

That’s how we did it as husband and wife, and how I did it as a bride. And my wedding day was the best day I’ve ever lived.
