Our ‘A Day in the Life’ series continues with Truong, our Vietnam Country Lead – a father of one 👨‍👩‍👧 – a basketball player 🏀 (in the past :D) – a pro angler 🎣 (present)… We catch up with Truong on one of his working days from our Saigon office.

Date: 27 November 2018

07:00 – Wake up (after snoozing the timer multiple times 😅)

07:30 – Send Bella to school

After typhoon, the road was full of water…

07:55 – Drop Bella at the school.

08:10 – Adding energy for a working day.

Dry minced meat noddle – my favourite choice for breakfast (besides bánh mì & rich-milk coffee)

08:30 – Send my wife to her work place & heading to office after that.

After 🌧️ comes ☀️!!!

09:00 – Reach the office & order my coffee.

On the way, I met Thang – our Android expert. He looked very happy after the trip back to his hometown 😄

There is an event today Facebook Blueprint Examination – whatever it is, examination is never fun!!! 😀

09:15 – Workday begins.

Photo taking has to be 🚫 here because I need to focus on my work 😎

12:00 – Lunch time!!!

The fun never ends with these guys.

14:50 – Find a quite & comfort place to focus on some admin stuff.

It is just in front of the office 😁

Oh, it is Angela Meditation 🙏 with free entrance!

Toong, the co-working space where our office is located, always have some activities on every Tuesday & Friday. Below is just another event organised by Toong

From pager to money magic trick!!
Note: it is only applied to the girl (as in the video) 😅

15:30 – Have a walk & tea break

Loving the greenery around the office!

Found a street vendor selling fruit juice – It took 2 oranges to make this glass of orange juice… for just $1, nice!!!

17:00 – Wrap up my work for a day

17:15 – Heading home

Sigh… traffic!

Hint: to avoid the traffic, either take the shortcut (if you also like to explore the city :D) or not to get on the road during rush hour (8-9am in the morning & 5.30-6.30pm in the evening)

18:11 – Reach home & it’s time for dinner!!

My meal at home always has a lot of veggies. So don’t ask me why I am so skinny 😀

Now, let me show you how to wrap a spring roll

Basically, just put any food you like on top of the wet rice paper, wrap it & dip into sweet & sour source -> Enjoy!!

Last but not least

This photo is what I want to say after all 🙂

Thanks for reading!
