Editors’ Letter – January 2019

To the Vietnamese, the new year officially begins when we welcome Tet. Regardless of where we are in the world, the Viet people do not forget Tet.

Join Culture Magazin to celebrate the new year of the Earth Pig in this issue, and review a beautiful Tet custom of “The first day is Father’s Tet, the second day is Mother’s Tet, the third day is Teacher’s Tet.” Leave all our joy and sorrow of the past year behind at Linh Quy Phap An Pagoda, a place of serenity that can rejuvenate the spirit. Let’s begin the new year with peace by a trip to Bhutan, the land of the Buddha. Recharge ourselves at the majestic mountain town of Banff and load ourselves with knowledge and creativity in the music city of Nashville.

The cover story spotlights beautiful and talented singer, Ha Phuong, the wife of famous Wall Street billionaire Chinh Chu. We introduce to you to Vietnamese fashion designer Thuy Nguyen, “the woman of silk brocade,” and her ao dai collection inspired by love for her Vietnamese culture. Listen to and contemplate the dream for a clean and green Vietnam of a Vietnamese-American teacher, Nguyen Huu Nhan. Chat with the CEO of a successful Vietnamese brand specializing in nail products, Kem Ben Thanh, who shares her journey to conquer the nail industry in our 5 Minutes with Bui Thi Mai Chau.

Finally, cultivate new hope in the early days of the new year with the five-fruit tray and its health benefits, and take in useful advice for a positive financial future.

Culture Magazin wishes you health, happiness, and prosperity in 2019.
