The Word this September!

Interesting new look for The Word HCMC this month.

And in celebration of Vietnam’s Independence Day, this month’s issue features Old Saigon through old photographs.  In Word’s search for photographs, there was a brief mention of my favorite shop, Bookazine that closed down.  Christian Louboutin just opened a shop in Dong Khoi so you can imagine that the price of rent along this street has soared sky-high.  No wonder Bookazine had to go.  I don’t think  selling magazines and old books can pay the bills.

So anyway, do find time to read The Word’s issue this month and see a glimpse of Saigon way back then.

And of course, do check my article on In The Frame featuring Anh Tuan, a painter and mosaic artist who has made  a living making reproductions.  Will post about him soon.

And I’m so happy that they published a photo that I took!  That’s my first ever published photo found at the bottom! 😀
