Hi Khiem,

Luke Nguyen is a great Vietnamese chef and absolutely his cook books are wonderful.

I guess you also like Vietnamese food, right?

Have you learned about Vietnamese literature? I'm sure you will find it interesting and get to know more Vietnamese writers too?


Cheers,

Giang

Hi Khiem!


Haruki Murakami is one of my favorite authors too! I totally agree with your point of view.

But he's Japanese. :grin:

Don't you like Vietnamese authors?


Cheers,

I like Haruki Murakami, because of the way he can make the ordinary seem fantastic.
