Short Trip Home

Nha Trang beach

I am off to Nha Trang tomorrow for my dad anniversary and spend sometimes with my family ecause I will spend my Tet in Phu Quoc this year. I miss my home town, the food, good friends and the beautiful beaches. Another reason is the cold is killing me here in Hanoi also the high huminity that's making me feel tired and couldn't sleep well.

Seafood seller

This year I am going to back to work in hospitality again as I kind miss it. I hope I can get a good job with a reasonable salary without working in the 5 star hotels around Hanoi as they pay really low. One of my friends who is working at the Sofitel Metropole Hotel told me that they promoted him to supervisor but they couldn't pay him the higher salary due to the economic crisis and hotel's lower profit. It's a joke as the hotel is always almost full plus they have just extended another wing to have more rooms. I had an interview at the Metropole before and I didn't know that they paid very low and you have to work harder compared to the other hotels around.

Seafood seller

When I am in my home town, I have to think about which companies I am going to work for as I have a few options and some of them are from my friends recommendations, mostly in restaurants. I love to work in restaurants because that was what I started in when I was 18 and it seems I have good skills in this area and enjoy meeting people.

Fire work

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great year in 2010 with happiness, success and health.

Yes, welcome back. Long time no see. Another job suggestion (but don't know if it is realistic): Any foreign or Vietnamese food journal or traveler's magazines around that you could hire up? They could use your expanded knowledge.

I just spent a week in Nha Trang and met a friend from the internet that has opened a small hotel on Bai Doung beach area. I fell in love with this area. His hotel is called The Tide and if you go home again stop in to say hello.
