Want to succeed in life ? Stop using Facebook, now !!

The power of Internet connection nowadays seems to be developed strongly and unpredictably, this finally leads to the problem of being extremely addicted  to Social network sites from young people

The reason why we should use social network sites much less than ever

According to NewYork Times, they present a special case about Cal Newport-  A Computer Professior and also the author of bestseller ” So good, they can’t ignore you, why skill trump passion in the quest for work you love”. He is a successful person and he never ever has any account for any social network site as well, even Twitter and Instagram.

So, why Cal chooses the completely opposite way from more than 78% American youngers who are using social network sites every hour of everyday? Not just because he worries about spam, ads, personal information security or his mental health. Simply, Car just believes this could affect on his life or his career positively

In the capitalist economy, the market often pays for only unique products. The action of using social network sites regularly considers to be a normal activity, it is not worth getting attention from most employers.
If you just keep repeating or maintaining usual activities, and don’t wanna go outside, try to impress yourself, your thinking will become more sensitive,  not strong enough for any job which requires lots of pressure, tight deadline, etc in future..
The basically simple thing of success is that you could create your own ideas, useful products, and make everybody trust in them.
One could broaden his knowledge, has perfectly necessary skills will let the chance come to him naturally, in spite of the fact that he never has shared completely anything on any social network sites before. However, nowadays, nets of media are not supposed to  concentrate on how to learn, build or develop skills, knowledge to be more successful.
So that, wasting a lot of time for social network sites make users less concentrate on the important things of their life, evaluating themself, learning new lessons…Finally, that coud lead to the worst productive outcome.

Stop updating facebook status
   According to IIanna Gerson – An Anthropologist from Indiana University, Bloomington and the author of the book “Down and out in the New Economy: How People Find  (or don’t Find) Work Today”. An action of updating everything about yourself is a waste of time and doesn’t make any kind of sense.
After interviewing the candidates applying in a new project for her new book, IIanna showed that trying to build the impressive image is not a good way to get job. From her point of view, that is just a method for us trying to let ourself take in the economy which becomes more weak and easy to collaspe at this time.
In other words, updating your profile on Facebook or Twitter now is just a phenomenon of thinking over about their abilities to be more professional as well as more successful.
So, to maintain their impressive image on Facebook, they must login and be online 24/24 on Internet in order to have more likes, follows, shares and comments. This absolutely affects negatively on the social relationships in real life..The users of social network sites will constantly live in the world of unreal things, and even maybe probably lead to dismiss really big chances outside.

” Trying to build your own profile image on social network sites is just the most stupid thing ever. It wastes time, and definitely never be a good way to get job. Human is not a product used for taking label. You’d better learn how to spend time on developing yourself to be more valuable and even unique in society.”

How a 24 years old person should react to her life

Now, being an adult, a girl has to change some of her habits and prepare for a long run ahead !

Not 25, or maybe 20, at age 24, we are coming to the period of getting mature, though we are still a little bit infantile. At this age of life, some people could have been working for a company or a corporation for more than 2 years, getting a lot of experience. However, that is not enough to have right decisions in their life, so, it’s the time to start to change some daily habits or old thoughts….

Dont try to follow new fashion trends and let your wallet empty for costly things, but investing in polite, approriate  clothes actually be an accurate choice..

Decide to love someone should be a serious intention, don’t consider it just a joke

After 24, you will recognize trying to get to know what others think about you is just a waste of time..

artboard-1-copy-2-1489421165643.png (1000×625)

You dont have the chance to choose the ones gave birth to you, so, all you have to do is loving them by your heart and soul

artboard-1-copy-3-1489421165647.png (1000×625)

Being 24, you should have something valuable for your own, right ?

artboard-1-copy-4-1489421165649.png (1000×625)

Live a real life, dont depend on the odd things on internet anymore

artboard-1-copy-5-1489421165652.png (1000×625)

Not just for beauty, a healthy body seems to be much more important. Dont just complain how fat you are all day, going to the gym right away, instead

artboard-1-copy-6-1489421165654.png (1000×625)

Arranging your stuffs carefully, live a clean, logical life never seems wasteful
artboard-1-copy-7-1489421165655.png (1000×625)

Realize  about what you really want clearly

artboard-1-copy-8-1489421165657.png (1000×625)

When 24, learn to refuse or dimmiss things you don’t want, say No with the things you don’t like. Having your own ideas, being brave and strong more !

Good morning, December !!

Eating and drinking, for no particular purpose

All you need in Vietnam, besides good company, is beer, delicious food and a sense of freedom.

In Ho Chi Minh City, and other parts of Vietnam, when somebody says it’s time tonhau, it’s a clarion call to go “drinking and feasting”. Pressed to explain the concept further, a man from Da Nang once described “nhau” as “eating and drinking for no particular purpose.”

No one has to be celebrating a birthday. It doesn’t have to be a national holiday — or even the end of the week. It could be a run-of-the-mill-Tuesday evening but somebody wants to eat, drink and be merry, and that somebody needs company — a gang of friends, a bunch of colleagues, brothers, sisters, neighbors, whomever.

Two is enough to nhau, but three’s better, and the more, the merrier.

But to be clear, people don’t brave the crosstown traffic to nhau in a fancy restaurant — too stiff, too stuffy, too alienating for those unacquainted with fine-dining conventions Nor can you nhau at a noodle joint, where you’re expected to slurp your bowl down and skedaddle to make way for the next hungry punter. If it that all sounds like the Vietnamese equivalent of after-work drinks, or heading down the local pub, you’re underestimating the importance of feasting. Even if they plan to get blind drunk, nobody in Vietnam cares to imbibe without food of some description on the table. When people agree to nhau, a venue may be selected for the quality of its food rather than a convenient location. Forget TripAdvisor certificates — in a sprawling city, famed for its chaotic roads, if someone rides a scooter for 8km to a particular eatery, the owner should feel free to brag.

To nhau you need an airy space, plenty of time and, above all else, a feeling of freedom. Every table should feel like they can stay as long as they want, drink as much as they want, sing, and laugh, and shout as loud as they want…

So typically, people will head to a quan nhau (a tavern of sorts, preferably one that spills out onto a pavement), where they will be seated in plastic chairs at fold-up tables and presented with a single, exhaustive menu. A quick meeting — one perhaps chaired by a dominant character — on a serious topic is held: what will we eat? But whatever is ordered, the ensuing feast is invariably heavy on protein and light on carbs. Rice would only rob you of room for beer.

As the evening unfolds, every dish lands without ceremony in the middle of the table. The commensal spirit of such gatherings is innate to Vietnamese. No one orders their own steak-frites or the catch of the day.

There are also no individual orders of beer — it’s one commercial beer or another for everyone. After a crate has been dragged to the table, cylinders of ice are placed in glasses even if the bottles have been refrigerated. Sacrilege? Elsewhere in the world, sure, but in Ho Chi Minh City, a) the ice keeps the beer cold in spite of the soupy heat and b) if challenged to consecutive bouts of tram phan tram (“100%” the vernacular for bottoms up), even a beer snob can warm to the virtues of a watery beer.

In parts of the city, a busker might wander past the most popular quan nhau, strumming as he strolls, hoping a table of revelers will coo him over to croon a sentimental ballad. But with or without music, come 9 p.m., each quan nhau invariably has an infectious air of festivity, and flustered staff will be run off their feet until every table has eventually had its fill of food, and beer, gossip and stories, teasing and taunting…

Which brings us to the final act: settling the bill. Invariably, someone will seize it and make a gallant attempt to pay for everyone, but generally the rest of the table will have none of it. Let’s all chip in, someone will reason, and nhau again soon.

And they will; later that week or the following week, whenever somebody wants to eat, drink and be merry (for no particular purpose) and that somebody needs company.

Saigon’s trinity of spiritual sites

Just so you know, Obama took a look at one during his official visit.

In Vietnam, folk religion blended with other faiths creates a spiritual sense that affects all aspects of life. In its most crowded city, Saigon, sites dedicated to the gods can be found nestled away in neighborhoods, small yet outstanding with their architecture and unique ambiance found only at the intersection of urbanization and religion.

Below are three original sites worth putting on your itinerary for a spiritual journey of Saigon.

The Temple of Lady Thien Hau

Lying on Nguyen Trai Street in District 5, it’s a Chinese-style temple dedicated to Thien Hau, the Lady of the Sea in traditional Chinese religion. The Chinese community in Saigon is said to have built the temple in the 19th century. Thanks to its ornate appearance hailed by many, Lady Thien Hau’s temple attracts both locals who come to pray for prosperity, luck or whatever they need in life, and tourists curious about the city’s favorite pagoda.

The Jade Emperor Temple

Built between 1892 and 1900 in honor of the supreme Taoist God (The Jade Emperor or King of Heaven, or Ngoc Hoang in Vietnamese), the temple is filled with statues of phantasmal divinities and grotesque heroes depicting characters from both Buddhist and Taoist lores made from reinforced papier mâché and wood.

In 1984, the temple’s name was changed to Phuoc Hai. It is known among the city’s people as the place to ask for children, and earned global fame when U.S. President Barack Obama visited in May.

Mariamman Temple

Mariamman, or Indian Lady as she is referred to by the people here, is a Hindu goddess. Her temple on Truong Dinh Street (District 1) was built in the early 20th century by Indian immigrants as a sacred place for those living on alien soil, and it is still under the care of Indian people today.

Despite being the cradle of both Hinduism and Buddhism, India’s influence is only faintly present through the latter, a religion that emigrated to Vietnam quite early on but has been localized and bears far more resemblance to characters from neighboring China, due to long domination, than from its birthplace. The Temple of Mariamman is a rarity and the most visited Hindu site in Vietnam, serving those who wish to complete their spiritual journey with something original.

The most dangerous roads in the world

Located at highest places without passageway, may get destroyed by wave are all the extreme challenges on the road for the drivers
a1.jpg (640×480)

Almost the roads inside the moutains have the same way to conduct is that using fireboxes. However, it can not be right with this one, Guoliang tunnel from China. In 1972, 13 local people in Guoliang area had to sell their pets to contribute to a fund in order to build a road which could be a connection with the world outside.

a2.jpg (640×480)

They didn’t use any fireboxe to collapse the moutain, the very simple equipments have been used instead. By this way, the proccess became much more dangerous, and wasteful of time. Finally, it has taken nearly 5 years to complete this tunnel with 1.2 kilometre length for use. The tunnel with very narrow width, if the drivers dont want to have any risk, they shouldn’t get lack of attention to any potential danger.

a3.jpg (640×480)

James Dalton (Alaska, USA) is one of the most dangerous subways in the world. Futhermore, it’s also called the loneliest road due to the existence of three towns with only 60 citizens living  along the road.

a4.jpg (640×480)

There are lots of challenges with many difficulties could damage the drivers such as : heavy snow, extreme wind, non-protected conditions..even the bad temperature down to -60 celcious degrees.

a5.jpg (640×480)

Atlantic Road (Norway) is only the finest street in the list. Nevertheless, if dont have much experience enough, the drivers also can get the danger easily. For instance, the large waves caused by bad weather or storms could attack any object which is moving on the road. In addition, with approximately 60 kilometres per hour of speed, the wind always be the winner in the battle  against to the drivers who even had much experience for many years.

a6.jpg (640×480)

However, in usual conditions, this road is also the most beautiful destination for everyone who has a deep love with nature .

a7.jpg (640×480)

The road through the Himalaya moutain in SouthAisa certaintly is not the place for weak-heart people. This road was best-known as the highest road in the world. And of course, it doesn’t have any gallery.

a8.jpg (640×480)

Unsuprisingly if there has any transportation be a victim of this unsafe road.

a9.jpg (640×480)

Living in Bolivia never seems to be easy at all. This country was known as a tiny and poorest nation in SouthAmerica. There also has many threatening roads as known as the most vicious destinations in the world. In spite of many difficulties and bad conditions, people still play a risky game with their fate for a simple reason, to survive.
a10.jpg (640×480)

Obviously, the symbols like this actually  show to the driver lots of things, also warn them should pay attention to everything they see on their journey frequently.  Yungas is the name of this road, it also has another name,” deathly journey”. There is a number of deads was estimated on this road, may be 200-300 died people every year, it means 2-6 ones a week in average.

Stay alive……

Only a few hours to say goodbye to 2015…should be sad or glad ?…There are many things have changed for years…

All I want to say to you, dear my friend…”Gud luck to you in the New Year, 2016″…We’ll keep moving on the way we chose…

“Stay Alive”
There’s a rhythm in rush these days
Where the lights don’t move and the colors don’t fade
Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams
In a world gone shallow
In a world gone lean

Sometimes there’s things a man cannot know
Gears won’t turn and the leaves won’t grow
There’s no place to run and no gasoline
Engines won’t turn and the train won’t leave

I will stay with you tonight
Hold you close ’til the morning light
In the morning watch a new day rise
We’ll do whatever just to stay alive
We’ll do whatever just to stay alive

Well the way I feel is the way I write
It isn’t like the thoughts of the man who lies
There is a truth and it’s on our side
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Look into the sun as the new days rise

And I will wait for you tonight
You’re here forever and you’re by my side
I’ve been waiting all my life
To feel your heart as it’s keeping time
We’ll do whatever just to stay alive

Dawn is coming
Open your eyes

Look into the sun as the new days rise

There’s a rhythm in rush these days
Where the lights don’t move and the colors don’t fade
There is a truth and it’s on our side
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Look into the sun as a new day rises
