A life update

What a day - actually scratch that, what a week it has been. This week was my final week of university for the semester. It was a pretty busy and full on week for me and I started to feel overwhelmed with everything going on, but now that the week is over, I can sit... Continue Reading →


When I grow up I want to be a Journalist

Growing up in a traditional Vietnamese family, becoming a journalist was never really an option. When I was younger I wanted to be a policewoman, that was the first ever dream job of mine. As I grew up I decided policing wasn't really my thing and that I wanted to be a teacher. I stuck... Continue Reading →

Fresh off the boat

I'm back - Tanned, refreshed and ready to get back into it. For those who know me, I've been working/interning/studying constantly for the last year and haven't really had a proper break.

“Why is your life so glamorous?”

Today I was asked, "why is your life so glamorous?" not just once, but twice, from completely different people. Now, A very wise man informed me long before today's encounter that people will assume that having a life in media/communication is glamorous. Sure, I'm having the time of my life as a student journalist and as... Continue Reading →


That’s a wrap!

And I'm back, back to plain old Sydney, no more Canberra adventures for Han...not for now at least. So I haven't been posting the last few days because I though it'll be better to have one big post than two small ones, considering they weren't very busy days, but still amazing things happened. Thursday, the... Continue Reading →
