Whenever someone asks me about Hanoi, they always make me feel so happy and emotional. Not only because Hanoi has the best coffee and Pho (the famous Vietnamese beef noodle soup), but also it's a place where I call "Home". If I wasn't living in Singapore now, my life would be much different in Hanoi. I wouldn't be a fashion & travel blogger, but a dance instructor instead.
It's crazy to think how a certain decision can lead us to a completely different direction in our life. My story is an example.
I never knew what a blog was and never thought of writing about fashion. I had no interest in any fashion week. My life was all about dance practices, dance competitions, performances, and teaching classes. Guess what? After 11 years, I came back home with two suitcases full of beautiful shoes, clothes, and bags. But it wasn't for any dance competition like how I used to dream of my return trip when I just left the country. I was back to Hanoi for the Vietnam International Fashion Week.
It was the first Fall Winter International Fashion Week organized in the capital of Vietnam. It was also the longest time I've spent in Hanoi since I left the city in 2004.
