Du, 34, assembling artisan.

“I take photos of my children with me everywhere I go. If I’m having a tough day, or if I’m feeling tired, I just have to flick through my phone and I feel much better.”

 We ask to look at the pictures while he works and he pulls his phone out of his trouser pocket. His eight year old is wearing a scholar’s cap and looks very serious. “My younger son is only eight months, but it’s my eight year old that gets easily upset.”

 “My wife named the boys Thành and Qúy. It means ‘successful’ and ‘prosperity’. She’s a businesswoman and runs a coffee shop in town so she knows what’s important – in people and coffee!”
