I must admit I was just as shocked as everyone when I was told Tuoi Tre News (TTN) would have to shut down along with the Vietnamese language version. Although I knew the shutdown was only a few months, it was surprising how much it had become a part of my life. I didn’t realize how much I would miss TTN. Sniff…where’s the hanky? After contributing to the ‘City diary’ section of the TTN website for five years and more than 300 articles, it was disconcerting to find my weekly writing process grind to a halt. It felt like being fired from a job. Initially I wasn’t too worried but as time passed, the lack of a creative outlet began to get to me. No, my hands didn’t shrivel up in despair nor did I hide in the corner imagining my public life had come to an end. However I did eat more chocolate. I wrote more than one story a week as some events during the year required more content, for example, between Christmas and the Western New Year and then over the Tet holiday. Other times I … [Read more...] about Did ya miss us?

Việt Nam celebrates after beating Maldives at the AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2022 qualifiers, held in Tajikistan on Thursday. — Photo AFC Football HÀ NỘI — The head coach of the Vietnamese national women’s football team expressed his dissatisfaction with his team after their opening Group B victory against the Maldives on Thursday. Việt Nam sent a message of intent to the rest of their group in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2022 qualifiers in Tajikistan, beating the Maldives 16-0. This is the biggest victory in the history of the national women's team, but coach Mai Đức Chung felt they could have converted more. “I am not really satisfied with the team’s play. Our scoring performance is not good. In the first half, the players missed a lot of opportunities. If we knew how to make better use of the ball, we could have scored 20 goals, maybe more. We won this match because the opponents were too weak, not because we were too strong. We will have to overcome this shortcoming,” … [Read more...] about Việt Nam women’s team beat the Maldives 16-0 but Coach Chung felt they could have scored more
