Music and Dreaming: Immaturity and Paperplanes


Thành Luke wrote his first song when he was in grade 8th and first time introduced to the guitar. Now his band Cá Hồi Hoang is quite a familiar name to Vietnamese young people. Their new album "Paper Dream" was released on 10 Dec 2017 at Yoko Cafe.

When asked how he started on this path, Thanh said "I didn't. Music was already inside of me." Nevertheless, it was quite a struggle until he could dedicated all his time for music. In his senior year at the University of Foreign Trade, he decided to quit and followed his passion.

Thanh named his talk at Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 10 "Music and Dreaming: Immaturity and Paperplanes.

How Hongkong movies shaped my life

@ VOL 10 ON DEC 11, 2016

What makes you who you are today? Is it your family, your friends, what you have done or the places you have been to?

For Trần Duy Nguyễn, the answer lies in the 90s Hong Kong movies. To sit around the TV, watching Hong Kong films being played by a VHS player is the kind of memories many 8x and 9x Vietnamese share. It is common, but also very personal since such movies are the main and almost only form of entertainment there used to be.

Meditation Experience in Vietnam

@ VOL 9 ON OCT 01, 2016

We know you're stressed, but there are better ways to deal with that than killing your boss/client or burning down your school. Meditation is one of them and to help you get the ball rolling, we have invited a very special guest to Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 9.

Meet Tom Christie, whose meditation practise and the quest for peace and zen has taken him on several retreats in places you probably haven't heard of, both in Vietnam and elsewhere. He's going to talk about how he got into meditation practise.

So take a deep breath, exhale... and see you on Saturday October 1st, 2016.

Tin's Running Story

@ VOL 9 ON OCT 01, 2016

"People sometimes sneer at those who run every day, claiming they'll go to any length to live longer. But don't think that's the reason most people run. Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but BECAUSE............" - Murakami - What I Talk About When I Talk About Running.

Tin ran 70km in Sapa in Vietnam Moutain Marathon 2015. There were 156 runners (including 21 Vietnamese) participating in this 70km run. Tin was one of the only 8 Vietnamese who could complete the route. And, last month he accomplished a new record of running 100km around HCMC!

If you are curious how this slim and quiet man could do it, let’s listen to his unbelievable story.

Story of My Town

@ VOL 9 ON OCT 01, 2016

A man of many talents - Oji Valencia is a filmmaker, artist, illustrator and musician from the Phillippines. He’s lived in Saigon for nearly seven years. 

In his talk Oji takes us to the back alleys of a small town where he grew up, back in the Phillippines of the 70s. Far from ideal living conditions didn’t stop Oji from taking charge of his life, studying film and pursuing his current career. Well fed with amusing incidents involving a raunchy pig and chicken, his funny yet insightful talk is not to be missed!



Doan Linh Hand Written Letters

“I use handwritten letter to listen and encourage people…”

In "Hand Written Letters", from PechaKucha Night Ho Chi Minh City Vol.9Doan Linh started "Letter to Angel", a non-profit organisation committed to bringing the lost art of handwritten letters back to people in Vietnam and around the world. In this presentation, she shares with us her vision behind L2A and what she hopes to achieve through it. It would be unfair to mention that she’s only 20 years old because her thoughts are much bigger the tiny number! Grab some paper and a pen, you might want to hand write your loved ones a letter right after listening to her talk.
