The ponderous things

 

Every time I receive a phone call from my “colleagues”, these two lines are always the conversation starter, “how are you?” and “how are the kids?” As usual I always respond quickly with “I’m good, after 60 years and still running great”. But the response to the second question, I never seem to have a good answer; because it has never been smooth. That is the thing that I ponder the most.

Series of unfortunate events

The crime scene

 

With information provided to us by a colleague, after two visits to the apartment, I was able to meet her, a mother with three children. She told me the story of her life for 40 years, I couldn’t help but feel sad for her fate and her children.

The thrill of a new school year

Bustling and busying! That is the atmosphere of the OBV house in preparation for a new school year.

Before entering the new school year, the first thing that the OBV pays attention to the most is stabilizing all of the children’s health. Uncle K., Aunt N along with Aunt L. took all of the kids to get full examinations carefully. It took two full days from morning to afternoon to finish; everyone has to eat lunch from street vendors while waiting for the exam results. The results showed that: a couple of the children are okay, one of the child’s mental health isn’t stable along with reduced vision. Another child suffers gynecological issues. There are also two children who have to take medicines constantly, so now after each meal, besides the desserts is the display of the medications in different forms and colors.

Tay Ninh's Delicatessen

The past couple of days were filled with holiday celebrations, from Christmas to New Year. These are special days therefore the food dishes were also more special. According to their liking, I bought from whole chicken to whole ducks, even extra wings and drumsticks. So much of that stuff that the children said: “we’re sick of this food; we just want to eat fish sauce with pickled cucumber.” Of course, I pleased them.
