Kiêu, 34 – button threader.

“I had a difficult childhood. I lost my mum and dad early in my life and thinking about it still breaks my heart.”

 

Furniture, mid-century style

“When I first moved to Saigon, I lived with all my brothers and sisters. We partied on the weekends, cooked together, joked about. Now we all have partners and children so we live in different places, but we still get together regularly.”

 

Furniture, mid-century style

“Last weekend, we met up for one of my nephew’s birthdays and cooked My Quang, which is a dish from my hometown. We all know how to make it, but my brother and I make it best. Our dad taught us – it’s a really precious memory for us.”
