hoaiA man adjusts his glasses and looks out of the window, at the morning sun slowly rising. He lifts his chopsticks for his grilled fish and steamed rice breakfast, then sips his beer. He orders a Singapore Sling, then another. With the flavour of freshly warmed baguettes in the air, I order a glass of medium white for my fish and switch on the film Seven Psychopaths. The plane glides through the Pacific twilight somewhere between Tokyo and Singapore.

There is no time for Singapore Slinging or spring rolling at Changi, as my flight is delayed and the airline decides to ship five passengers to their Da Nang flight on a VIP airport buggy. The buggy driver operates the machine like it’s an accelerating rocket, whizzing pass duty-frees at 3km/h, and we make it to our empty gate as the last ones to board. I thank my chauffeur and say goodbye – it turns out I had also bit farewell to my suitcase, as I am told at the Da Nang baggage reclaim, that the ground staff at Changi could not keep up with the light-speeding buggy.

A distant karaoke tune drifts across the river, and I gaze at the cornfield on a delta across from the Café. I sit at a balcony table and stir my ca phe sua da, as the moist Hoai breeze mixes the lyrics with the shuffling sound of bamboo leaves and the chorus of the ducks next door. The sun starts to set, my duck farming neighbours blast their karaoke, and my suitcase is delivered. I forget about the snow-covered Tokyo streets, as I sit back under the Hoi An sky.

Now in U café, staffs practice repeatedly baking muffins & scones etc..

They’re working hard, so they’ll become skillful soon.

After that they’ll start to practice baking BanhMy.

You may taste the fruits of their efforts very soon.

 

Meanwhile, U café  is run by a company Xin Chao.

Obtained agreements of relevant parties,

I’ve set to work for changing on bussiness type of the company

& changing names of shareholders of it.

It’ll take a good long time may be.

Any way, here’s a New Year’s song of celebration

sung by lovely Vietnamese singer.

‘ Mùa Xuân Đầu Tiên ‘

 Occasionally, I was asked a question as follows by Japanese guests of U Cafe. I have something to do here & I love to do it, it is my reply. Somehow it seems that my reply makes them being confused.

 So I explain the reason simply & request you to understand my thoughts.

 As you know, in the developing countries a lot of children are out of an opportunity to study, in Vietnam also. For solving this big problem, subsidiary projects have been stirring on in the land. I pay my deep respect for their enthusiastic effort & the great results made by them for this issue.

 I know that Vietnamese need to be supported from the outside for the time being. But they’re deucedly clever to solve their problems by themselves. Thus I offered them a small café as a space for the project. The construction of it has finished. Making a good profit from the café, the project will be able to support underprivileged children by it independently. It’s laid on the preparation work of the café bussiness.

 And now for the café, I’m looking for Vietnamese successors & who is interested in this café project.

 Vietnamese, please stand on your own feet & give your hands to underprivileged children. Also I request my friends to give me your opinion about my thought.

 I’m sure there’s no problem which won’t be solved.

Thank you for your kind attention!

Tết, the New Year’s Day according on the lunar Calendar, will come shortly.

I wish your New Year will be filled with happiness!
