VietNamNet Bridge - Twenty-one tons of coffee in Dak Nong province made of battery powder have been seized as ‘dirty coffee’. However, no one can define what ‘clean coffee’ means. According to Nguyen Viet Vinh, secretary general of the Vietnam Cocoa and Coffee Association (Vicofa), one of the hottest issues now is the absence of national standards for roasted coffee.

Two foreigners living in and outside Vietnam recalled their cozy memories with the Lunar New Year, or Tet in Vietnamese. 'Starting afresh' I’ve witnessed ten Tet since I started living here. In the early years I went to the fireworks and partied with friends in the expat bars around Hoi An.

In the more recent years as I had some dogs as pets, I tended to stay at home or take the dogs for walks during the holiday evenings because it’s so calm, peaceful and lovely to see how people have decorated their houses. I like the idea of “starting afresh’ – throwing out old things, cleaning up and yet, remembering their ancestors. I’ve lost both my parents in the last two years so this has been on my mind. I admire the devotion to the family, helping out with the Tet chores and working for the parents while they do stuff for Tet. I like the … [Read more...] about Tet is the time for family, friends in Vietnam
