Sleepless in Leeds

It's 6AM in the morning and I'm still wide awake. Too bad it is not because of any romantic reason (blame your sense of humour if you don't get this line). I'm just having a light (but very unpleasant) headache.

However, it is good that finally I'm catching up with my blog.

First thing I did when just got on the internet is typing, for my favourite magazine (won Britain's Best New Magazine), and on Places, I saw an article introducing "the Sexiest Stays in South-East Asia", in which Six Senses Ninh Van Bay is at No.1. A friend of mine works there (as I noticed from her Facebook status updates about some event she was co-ordinating for the resort) but I have never really looked for information or photos. Amazing place, now I see. And it's more amazing that I learned about a nice place in my home country from a British new magazine.

Suddenly this reminds me of a couple of times when I heard people (Vietnames students or graduates staying as Tier 4 Post Study Work) making fun of how "unknown" Vietnam is to Europeans. To be honest, I have not met that many white people who have no idea what Vietnam is. [As I remember, the only people I met who asked me if we Vietnamese speak Chinese were some Asian dudes in a small and kind of boring international exhibition tent among the Welcome Week events of my university.]

So, guys, we are definitely known. Or, at least, by the Brits.
