10 years Anniverary

Mom & Dad have a special dinner at Hibachi restaurant near the King of Prussia Mall.  We had 14 people going to the dinner and got our own room with 2 chef.

We had fun eating some good Hibachi and sushi and watched the chef performing the cooking skill over the table.  There was a Viet chef named Nghia at the other side.  They were both fun to watch.  They cooked shrimps and flipped them to guesses and make volcano over onion slides.  The kids loved it and QuocNam said it's the greatest show on earth.

Thanksgiving in Gilbertville

The whole family spent the Thanksgiving at Mom's place.  Bac Hai came down from Pittsburg and co sau came in from Maryland.  Big family get together.  We had a good time and ate some good foods:  chicken and stuffing dinner on Thursday and Lau Thai on Friday.

We went to the Philly Outlet on Friday and then King of Prussia Mall on Saturday...Exhausted but fun

Halloween in Quincy

We went to the neighborhood around the house to trick or treat. Quocnam dressed up like super hero. It was rather chilly outside but fun. Quocnam got a lot of goodies. In one house, when they asked who are you and Quocnam said this is Benjamin from Stedman and people started laughing, what they meant was the character that Quocnam was in and he said I'm a super hero. After getting the candy they said bye to Benjamin from Stedman. It was a fun moment.

Dad always checked what he has for lunch and Dad said chicken...Ben was amazed how would you know that...I was helping the chef with food...did you see me?

Dad sing...Bin la bin la u ca sin...bin la bin la u ca sen...bin la bin la u ca sinto...bin la bin la u ca tofu...

Ben said ah...that song was so annoying :)

One time Dad you want to talk to Adewumi Kondenege...Ben asked who is he...He is the Kenya president and Ben said

Today QuocNam went and visited grandpa at the nursing home.  He watched SBTN and during the singing of Trieu Con Tim, Nam hoi co ba trong do khong?  He always thought Lam Nhat Tien la ba. 

A nurse was talking to mom and said QuocNam is a handsome boy...He nodded and agreed :)

Sometime mon hoi Nam going ai...he said con going ba...Daddy hoi con muon going ai...Nam tra loi...con muon going ba

QuocNam 9th Birthday

Yesterday was a special day for QuocNam...his 9th birthday celebration.  He was excited at first with cousins joining him early in the morning.  He asked dad to skip Vietnamese school but was rejected and he was mad...said you're ruining my day.  Dad said "you need to go to school as you already skipped one last week...Teacher were working volunteer to teach and don't disappoint her".  Later on he went to school and told the teacher chi Thao about his birthday event today and teacher asked the class to sing to him...overall QN was happy.

Later his classmate joined.  We contacted ba Noi and then bac Hai to join him for via facetime.  He got cake, balloon and gifts and was excited.

Later on we went to dinner at 99 restaurant...QuocNam choice and enjoyed the fine food....

Happy Birthday to Benjamin QuocNam

Going to VietNam America movie screening

Today our family went to Strande theatre to watch the documentary of VietNamAmerica.  I want to let QuocNam see and hear about the story of Vietnam war from the Vietnamese point of view and also see the journey of boat people like Dad who risked his life to be free from the Communist regime and to hear and see the hardship our people had went thru as the refugees of Vietnam and worked hard to become valuable citizen of America.  We had a quality time to review history without distortion from the left wing.
