hey guys,

I just discovered this thread. Well I was born in Australia and can speak/understand viet but can't read it unless I try really hard and I have an idea of what's it about in the first place. I'm going to HK and Vietnam in two weeks.

I was born in hong kong now living in canada. My vietnamese is as poor as my french, but i know my vietnamese food names by heart cuz i have a restaurant.
I dont want to ever go back to vietnam cuz the last time i went there i had urgent diarhea for a month... i would take craps 4 times in an hour, and i had to do it while sitting on the ledge of a boat...

i dunno about the vietnamese ppl where u guys live but a lot of vietnamese ppl where i live are in the ILLEGAL business lol... mostly drug dealing and grow ops. And then i had to grow up with their gangster vietnamese kids who dress all in black and dye their hair yellow starting sh*t for no reason, squat by doors staring ppl down, saying du ma dit ma blah blah non stop lol... why am i ranting? i dunno we have so many of those types of viet ppl here that i feel embarassed when ppl ask what nationality i am. "Oh im viet.... but dont worry i aint gangster"

Yea, I got a similar situation where I live.^^;; The community I live in is basically filled with Vietnamese so, there's always at least one or two gangsters hanging around. Illegal huh? how about pirated copies? Thats some of the activites I know of.. Many people automatically assume I'm Chinese.

Mr Tran I see that you're from san jose, and yeah around the bay area i dont see those types of "hardcore" vietnamese dudes that we see up here. I have tons tons of relatives in the bay area in the OC. The ones in the bay area, almost all of my male cuzins are nigga washed.... they dress so thugged out and talk like a black person. Some of them even look latino when they grow their goti (<---spelling?) but yeah vietnamese americans and vietnamese canadians are different. There's a bad side to both. The ones in the OC are normal tho, normal white washed asians just like me.

see that we're both addicts of some sort to dramas i assume we're not that much different. But i can definitely tell the difference in LOOKS from an American and a Canadian. I have a vietnamese restaurants and during the summer I can tell who is on vacation from america, i can even tell the difference between Washington/texas/california americans... u guy shave ur own distinct vietnamese LOOK. and the way u guys talk totally gives it away, totally different accent if its not thugged out talk lol... but then u probably think us canadians talk weird eh? <------------

You got good eyes and can see the smallest of details that makes all the differece...SUGOI!!!! :thumright:

Don't even know how a canadian sound when they talk :unsure:

Korean guys are nice ^___^ so is Japanese

thats neat, you got a restaurant. It must mean then you can cook? Can't cook to save my life well...apart from the basics.

Accent? *thoughtful* I never realised since I think American is more sharper. Then again I would think Canadian and American accents would be similar. Can you really tell the difference between different Vietnamese? Thats pretty good, I can only tell depending on thier accents if thier from the north, south or middle. <<;;

Ahh, I nearly forgot. What dramas are you guys currently watching?
Um, and I was also wondering does anyone here listen to Vietnamese music?

yea we have a restaurant, been working there since 1999, im a pro waiter and cook now LOL. But I also have a normal job so im not just some kid who works for his parents. obviously texans tend to be darker and they have a certain hair cut thats sorta a trend with them, the way they dress too is noticable as well as their western accent.
washington ppl i dunno why but they talk like red necks, well my cuzins do. they play football while i play hockey lol o... americans..

australians have a better accent than british cuz british ppl ... their english is like english from hell... no idea what they are saying.....
wuld any of u australians wanna google talk with me? i wanna hear ur sexah accents. lol
and vietnamese music = teh sux0rz (i have bad viet so me no understand)

currently watching Only You...but i have tons have dramas im in the middle of watching but waiting for subs which i thank u fan subbers for btw.

@flynvballer:NICE!!!! Girls likes guys who can cook :mrgreen: They do.....right?? :unsure:

@surrealistic-destiny: I can't listen to vietnamese music....a good majority of them suck. I was at my friend's house one day because my brother had to do a project or something and she played a disk that was somewhat like Paris By Night and Asia.....but wasn't those two. I remember laughing at those guys who were tryin to be like BSB or N'sync....umm.....I remember one guy was singing in English, Vietnamese and Japanese (all 3 in one song. Rapping too if I remember right)<----this i thought was pretty cool :mrgreen:
But yea.....a good majority of the vietnamese singers I think can't sing and when they try to sing like Americans they suck at it :roll

k.t.tran : yeah, I guess many girls like guys who can cook since it would save them having to it all the time XDDDDDDDDDDDDD I have to agree with you about that. I mean in terms of Vietnamese boy bands.>__< Have you every heard of VPOP? omg...that band makes me cringe. But solo artists are good. I mean I'm listening to Van Quang Long at the moment which is suprising since I tend to listen to Japanese music.


shinigami really? Our accents? *happy there's another Australia, since now won't feel so out of place* British accents are okay but they sound as if thier looking down on you. I don't know why..but I get that sense. But nonethless they are cool IF you get used to it.

flynvballer: thats neat. a guy who can cook. the only thing my brother can make is 2 minute noodles.hmmm.. don't worry, I don't understand much Vietnamese either which is kinda bad since I got an exam in Vietnamese soon.[/b]

back in highschool, like in grade 11 and 12 me and my friends formed a volleyball club team. We compete against usually white guys and my team was an all asian guys team since its my buddies. DUring practices we always pump up the vietnamese rap in the background while we play and everyone would try to rap in viet and do the vietnamese strut after a nice play.. the funny thing is im the only vietnamese guy on the team and everyone else is chinese. Those fags... lol
"its the vietnamese gang that i bang with ride with the same ...???"

Usually at my restaurant only me and my 2 sisters work there with our parents and one other lady we hire but one of my sisters is a COP now ... LOL! yes u heard rite and the other one went to become a doctor somewhere in the Caribbean, so we hired a vietnamse girl from australia. I ask her so many things about australia and such but she's such a fob still since she came form vietnam recently.

um.. i think vietnamese music in general is HELL to my ears... i cant bear it... man vietnamese karaokee... oooo gawd.....

when i was younger its always... John be quiet the baby is sleeping (my lil sister) and then after that say that, they would pump up the vietnamese karaokee full blast.. like wtf... anwyays yeah...

HAHAHAHA Vietnamese karaokee :lol
reminds me of that old van son tape I watched. Funny Funny :lol

Yea...for some reason, Vietnamese people love to turn the volume up way high when they sing karaokee, even when they sound horrible, they turn loud enough for the whole neighborhood to hear :crazy:

Alright, we've all acknowledged the fact that there's a thriving Viet community out there that loves Asian dramas. And on the topic of dramas, why aren't there any Viet dramas available on D-Addicts? The only dramas I've seen are mostly horribly dubbed Chinese ones. But then again, the real Vietnamese dramas on VTV & HTV channels aren't any better. They are so bad that the locals don't even watch them and instead, they turn to Korean or Chinese ones that come with better story lines.

And don't give me the old excuse that "Vietnam is a poor country"...land prices in Saigon are more expensive than a lot of the US cities. And the excuse that "Vietnam is just recuperating from a war" is baloney. It's already been 30 years! South Korea was in a war and they have a much smaller population than Vietnam, but now they have advanced so much in areas of technology, movie production, etc...

No more excuses, Viet people! It's time to show the rest of Asia the best of our popular culture. Remember, we are a strong people with a long history dating back centuries when our ancestors drove out the Mongol invaders. A history that includes a long lineage of emperors, heroes and heroines.

^ Have you actually watched any of those Viet dramas before? There is a reason why they aren't many on the web. No rippers & they are not available on tapes over here.. at least where I live. To be honest, the only Viet dramas I ever heard or watch of is CAI LUONG. There are movies, but not sure if there are a lot of dramas.

Karaoke is like a tradition among Asian folks. Not many can sing that good, if they can, they would be on Van Son, Thuy Nga, or Asia already. It doesn't matter if you can sing or not, we do it because it's FUN. I don't have a problem with Viet music, I listen to it occassionally, hell, I even like country music & cai luong.

M-Twins i agree. *nods* It kinda makes you wish why don't we have better boy bands? Or at least something that doesn't make you want to laugh?

Karaoke..hmm. Yeah, its a tradition allright. I mean i can still remember whenever my dad gets drunk with his friends they end up singing to karaoke...not a pretty sight.. with the sound put up..and this is at 1 or 2am in the morning :pale:

wachi thats neat then, your the only person I "know" that actually likes Vietnamese music, well apart from my sister and parents but thats 'sides the point. My parents loved cai luong though.

flynvballer thats neat. My cousin is a cop too. while my brother is a security guard. So then you have more Chinese friends then Viet? I do.

NanYueh true. but I guess Vietnamese dramas aren't as popular. I mean my parents tend to watch Vietnamese dubbed Chinese movies. *shudders* the voices sound all the same after you watch alot of them. Oh! Have you ever heard of this Vietnamese drama..well not sure if its a drama but its called Co Lai Taxi.

about viet dubbed chinese movies......those are the worst...
yes they have the same voice in every movie...
i hate the kids they all have this really annoying high pitched voice, and during a fight or scene with a big crowd, the background noise of the crowd is always the same in every movie.... i think they use the same recording ... i hope u guys understand what im talking about. And one big reason i hate dubbed movies is that... i just realized this not long ago.... but everytime someone talks, every NOISE in the background stops .... if u guys paid attention its really annoying cuz the music in the background puts u in the mood to whats happening but its muted everytime someone talks...

the one big reason why vietnam isnt like korean or japan or hong kong is because after the vietnam war, the north vietnamese won and they were communist....
if the south won with the help of the americans they would have been a democratic country instead just like the SOUTH koreans and we maybe would have been in the same technology state as they are....
Hong kong is a lot more advanced than most of the rest of china was because it was owned by the UK thats why they are moore civilized..

and i hate CA LEONG.... however u spell it....gawd its so bad.... its vietnamese operah , gawd i hate when they start singing....and yeah i duno why they always resing american music iin paris by night and such.... its not bad since they always have hot chicks in the background....but some of the singers besides the young ones are older looking milf's with a lot of make up and great bodies lol...

sounds like i hate a lot of things...

flynvballer: It also seems like you're not really Viet either. Well, I don't hate half of the things you hate, but I guess I know what you mean. TVB Viet dubbed are actually not as bad as China or TW Viet dubbed, their voices don't match their characters. Viet dubbed dramas are more enjoyable by our parents because they understand it better, but us, we know better.

Though I don't hate Viet music, dubbed dramas, etc, I don't really pay attention to them that much. I actually enjoy jdrama & jmusic more.

Karaoke is fine, long as they don't blast it 2 am in the morning or something.

hi tobikko! Whoa. everyone is in the US here


wachi: yeah, thats true, I prefer to listen to jpop and watch jdramas. Well I think its the first time that I haven't seen anime for a long time. Yeah, our parents do enjoy it more then us but then when I was younger I used to enjoy watching them too.

karaoke...yes..^^;;

Yeah, since Vietnam is a communtist country it should be expected. The sad thing is most of the older generation, ie our parents are still angry about the vc. True, i understand the anger, whats the point of holding it since it won't do you any good? Its like my friend Thu who commented during Viet class people are just afraid of letting go. she ended up saying more but i won't write since it might offend some people here opps ranting here,,,I think I just got off the topic...

^ You have a Viet class in school? Or do you mean your friend spoke out in front of a classroom full of Viet people? I wish I have a Viet club here in college, we used to, but they're so inactive & not enough members, which is weird because there are like over 100 folks registered there.

I used to be addicted to anime, but since I found jdrama, I'm behind on so many animes... especially long anime like Naruto, Prince of Tennis, Bleach, etc. Dunno why, but I love Yakitate!! Japan. An anime about bread, who knew it can be so entertaining.

im definitely viet wachi, but yeah born in hong kong raised in Canada i dont value my roots as much as some ppl. but i always swear in viet when im playing sports but for the fun of it lol.. du ma!! shiet mang , i try to sound like a fob its awsome.

Yea older viet ppl love all things vietnamese no matter how boring it is. If the 11 oclock news was talking about viet ppl they would glue their faces to the TV, just the same as chinese ppl, everytime im at my friend's house when i was younger his parents and grandma were always watching the chinese channel... and there are only 2 channels but thats the only channel they watch no matter what time it is no matter what is on they would only watch those 2 channels.

and yeah i watch a lot of japanese anime too.. but not much recently since i work full time but before when i was in school i would watch as much as i can. ANd i've seen all the ones that u've mentioned wachi. The japanese pPL are great in making anything enjoyable to watch. I can imagine how bread can be so entertaining. I never watch anymore regular english TV shows anymore it doesnt get me emotionally into it as much as asian drama.

I love anime too but after finding out that asian drama especially jdramas are way more enjoyable( in a way, may be I watched anime too much and got bored because I often know the stuffs that are gonna happen in a anime) I haven't been keeping track and downloading all the new anime that are coming out. May be I should start watching anime again if I have time to finish all the dramas that I'm downloading now :roll :P ( too many things to watch but I have no time T______T)

^ I so understand your pain, I'm behind like around 100 episodes, thank god for IRC bots. I hate BT with a passion sometimes. And there are a few new animes out also, I mean, so many to keep up with when you forgot about for a few months. haha

Another thing my parents are obsessed with, SOCCER! They have this digital box with one channel on it that shows SOCCER matches 24/7, they're pratically glued to the TV. I mean I can understand my dad, but my MOM as well?! I like soccer, but not as much as them, I guess.

wow...i didn't know that a viet community existed here. i guess i should surf around more. i can speak, read, and listen to viet pretty well. i have the hardest time writing in viet with all the accents. i love viet food...from pho, bun bo hue, to chao long.

i caught on to the korean wave like two years ago when chinese drama started declining to me. i find that korean dramas have better plotlines than chinese dramas. i'm not saying all chinese dramas are bad...every so often there is a really good one.

anyways...i just wanted to say hi.

I think a majority of Viet prefer Korean & Chinese dramas.. of course I have said this before. Hardly anyone I know is into JDrama, which is really sad.

many of u guys that just posted after me i realized u guys just came from vietnam recently didnt you? your english is a little off lol but its ok i understand. Just curious tho, those of u who just came from vietnam recently how long have u been here?

the first drama i've seen besides vietnamese dubbed chinese drama from long time ago was a Japanese Drama, GREAT TEACHER ONIZUKA! haha it was very good and i cried too haha but yeah i thoroughly enjoyed it. Totally different atmosphere watching japanese from korean from chinese... its amazing how different these races are....and asians have a lot more issues with PRIDE than white ppl. They dont wanna be look down on ahh anyways.

up here in canada everyone is in love with HOCKEY. Its like how crazy soccer is in other parts of the world but hockey is the big hit here in canada. ALL asian MEN love hockey, all my uncles and family friends and both my parents love hockey and they get so mad when our team loses and they scream and cheer when watching on TV. I myself love and play hockey as well.. and i believe almost ALL asian boys play hockey in canada.

Yep, Canada is famous for its hockey, big sport over there. Over here, it's all about basketball, football & baseball.

Hahah, my first JDRAMA was GTO also! I love that drama. I cried too ..so much, like on every episode, because at the end, there is always this really touching & emotional scene. My favorite scene has to be when he smashed down the wall. Shocking, I cried. :D

The thing about Viet sub is, we don't need them. Mostly all dramas have Viet dubbed for them, people see no need to sub them in Viet. They don't dubbed Jdrama though, thank god.

okay korean drama has too much nonsense love stories that seems more of a fantasy or bs.... sorry thats my opinion. chineses drama has too much tears, this is from my experience. japanese drama seems the most realistic with their story lines even though it may seem ridiculous sometimes. i know i watch it and am currently living in japan .i must give credit that korean drama and chinese drama has very cute actress tho :P i am a vietnamese boat person who came to america but currently studying in japan.

You should start off by watching Jdrama then, GTO is my ALL time recommedation. The Japanese movie Ping Pong is worth a look as well. See? They even make the sport Ping Pong entertaining. Haha

I have no idea what the line said, all I understand is the first line, Good night & the last line, Very tired. I didn't know there are Zs in Japanese.

surrealistic-destiny: Sorry, I've never heard of Co Lai Taxi before. Is it produced in the US? Have you hear of DocTinh? It was very popular in Vietnam when it first aired.

wachi: You're totally right. VDrama's aren't readily available on DVD or CD's, so people can't rip them, so they aren't readily available on the net etc. But why is that? Could it be because Viet people prefer watching Korean or Hong Kong dramas? If that's the case, where is the market for Viet dramas then? If there's no market, who is going to distribute these DVD or CD's? Okay, I admit that the movie/drama producers are to blame as well, they aren't producing the quality that you typically see in Korean or Hong Kong drama, and thus the reason for my appeal.

flynvballer: "yea older viet ppl love all things vietnamese no matter how boring it is. If the 11 oclock news was talking about viet ppl they ".. Hey flynvballer, stop disrespecting yer elders! hehehe just joking. Y'know, older viet ppl watch it because it's something they can relate to (especially when language is a barrier) and thus find interesting. Whereas, let's take you for instance, someone who has lived in Canada for most of his life, so when you watch a dramas from heavily Western-influenced societies like Korea or Hong Kong, you can relate more to these dramas and therefore find them more interesting. N'est-ce pas?

But that's the whole point when you turn on the TV: to escape into a world of fantasy. I'll take fantasy plot lines over boring, realistic ones any day. I've tried my first JDrama, "Denchi Ga Kirerumade", but couldn't finish watching the first episode. <<Terminally-ill kids in a hospital>> Guess it was too much reality for me in one day.

Then you shoulnt't watch this kind of drama, you'd better watch funny one like densha otoko, Gokusen, GTO or Kimi wa petto.

NanYueh: Your first time was a bad experience (this sound weird) haha, but I mean you just picked a bad one. You should definitely tried those jdrama recommended to you above, start with GTO. Everyone should know & watch GTO, one drama that should NOT be missed.. then work your way down, if you like that type of genre, also try GOKUSEN, Densha Otoko is VERY likeable, if you're not into sad, melodrama type, then skip Beautiful Life, Summer Snow, etc.

NanYueh: Really? Thats a shame. But if you ever find it, be sure to watch it its really good. DocTrinh? Um..is it by chance a a bald doctor or something? He's in comics too right?

Hahahaha that is true what you said about flynvballer. Since we are influenced after all by Western movies we tend to relate to them as opposed to our parents.

Van Son is okay, then again the only one I watched was when he was in Tokyo. apart from that, nothing.

Korean film tend to be sad, well in my experience, I mean bichumoo was one. wait I don't think I spelt that right... :blink My Sassy girl was one...Chinese is funny. Watch Love on a Diet guys! Its really good, its got Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng.

@iLuvU4eTerniTy heyy thats neat. studying in Japan. I hope to that when I go to uni, but I reckon its not till second year uni you can go to Japan ;___;

viet subbed? We could try, but my viet isn't really good. :-(

The title of drama is actually Do^'c Ti`nh (but some people call it "Ti`nh Ye^u Tum` Lum Tum` La" :-)). No, it doesn't have anything to do with a bald doctor, but that's a good guess. The drama has approximately 20-25 ep's (I can't remember the exact number) and it was filmed in beautiful Da Lat. It has similar elements that you usually find in most Korean dramas: love triangles, parents' disapproval of their son's or daughter's relationship choices, the cute girl deciding which guy to pick, etc..

BTW, cool nick.

I have both My Sassy Girl and Love on a Diet :mrgreen:

Sassy Girl is really funny....a bit sad, but not as sad as Windstruck.

Love on a Diet sooo funny, but its good to watch like twice, then its not as funny anymore :roll

Another funny Chinese movie is Tricky Brain. Its got Andy Lau, Stephen Chow, and that old man guy who plays as the coach in Shaolin Soccer, I can't remember his name. Its really funny. Try it :mrgreen:

this thread is gonna go on forever i luv it lol.

Um.... I think iLuvU4eTerniTy has the phrase of the day. "I am a vietnamese boat person" lol i dunno why but thats exactly what a FOB (no offense) would say. =)

and yeah i suppose our parents dont give a crap about whats going on with white ppl and its more enjoyable for them to see ppl of their own race.
Nanyueh said something about me like watching korean and hong kong movies cuz im into westernized stuff compare to vietnamese weird stuff. If thats the case I dunno what you call those olden times movies... how do u say it in viet, Kiem Heep??

anyways yeah vietnamese people are somewhat very similar to THAI people... i dunno if thai people are MORE westernized than us or not but they've got a lot of very good horror and action movies out there. Why cant the vietnamese people do that?

I want to see some movie where a vietnamese guy from a village comes out of nowhere and kick everyone's ass..
Vietnamese people are only portrayed in westernized movies as part of some gang... but its somewhat true since vietnamese people are known as a huge part of the illegal underground crime world... in north america that is. Other times are during war movies....RAMBO anyone?? dit ma!! haha luv it

Differences between you and your Vietnamese parent

Post by NanYueh » Nov 14th, '05, 05:59

flynvballer, this debate could go on and on. All I'm saying is: personal viewing preferences may be related to a number of factors such as personal experiences, language and culture.

Your parents may find that cai luong/viet drama INTERESTING because:
1. The scenery may be familiar to them. It's about a place where they're all too familiar with: bamboo trees, rice fields, Mekong rivers and bamboo huts.
2. It is in Viet, so they understand it best.
3. It has subtle cultural nuances that they pick up in an instant.

Whereas, you may find that cai luong/viet drama BORING because:
1. Unfamiliar territory - you've never been to a place called My~ Tho, you couldn't find it on the map and couldn't care less. Or a friend asks you about Vietnam and you reply, "Vietnam? That's where my parents came from but I hear it's a backward country so you'll never see me going there."
2. Your viet is weak, you can barely speak let alone write it. And so, every time you hear something you can't quite make out, you ask your parents to repeat it.
3. Some weird, subtle Vietnamese cultural nuance occurred and it's left you staring at the screen dumbfounded, but your parents are laughing and rolling on the floor.

So give your parents some slack. If they were raised in the same environment as you, they'd be all white washed and beating to the latest Ghetto rap. (Not that I'm saying you are) :)

Culturally, we're more similar to the Chinese. In fact, South-Eastern China used to be a part of Vietnam. Through many centuries of confrontation with the Chinese, we lost that part of the land but advanced to the Khmer lands in south (where Saigon is today).

Objection!!!
1.DO NOT call us all Vietnamese Communists... I'm from VN but i'm not one of them
2. In theory, Socialist is kind of higher level than Capitalism . In the book, Socialist is one of a kind where ppl work with their ABILITY and receive what they WANT. for Capitalism, Work as your ABILITY, and receive base on your WORK.
3. But then we dont have RACIST ppl in VN. I heard from lots of friends studying in EU(e.g: Italy, Germany), they hate Asian, whateva kind u r, if u r YELLOW...especially CHinese China. How would u live in a place where u r not welcome...
4. HOT GAL... Check out this chick!!!

I agree with you at point 1+4.
Not agree at point 2+3. For me is point 2 only a theory. So if Socialism is a kind where ppl work with their ABILITY and receive what they WANT. So just one question: What has VN-people allready receive for their ability?
Point 3: wherever you go, there are good people and bad people. We also have rascist ppl in VN.

Point 3: wherever you go, there are good people and bad people. We also have rascist ppl in VN.
i dont know if you are living in VN now? They practicing Capitalism for Economic :mrgreen: THanks God!!! Vietnam Goverment kind of mix now, Politic : Socialism with Economic : Capitalism...
Becuz, Vietnam Goverment are mixing now, they cant really handle everything, if you know how to do business there, u can earn hell a lots :P
Man i would never hate a Vietnamase, even you are mix, you are still my bros and sis. Do you know meaning of the words " Đồng bào"???

@lantis
sure, not every vietnamese is communist, but the government is...
and that is what i dont like about vietnam!
I dont like it either, but i cant do nothing to change it, so i dont support em. But VN itself, i CANT WALK AWAY from MoTher LanD, man!!! :wub:
Anyway, chicks are chicks, diff taste then :thumright:
