After the Kitchen God has gone to the Heaven, preparations for the New Year festivities begin in enthusiasm.
I’m all for the Vietnamese community celebrating Tet. But when the Vietnamese community descends upon my neighbourhood, and has a huge ass garden party within earshot till the wee hours, I’m not so enthusiastic anymore. There’s only so much Viet ‘Tetno’ music you can handle on what you planned to be a quiet Saturday night at home.
But what to do? The Vietnamese are known for celebrating Tet in a big, big way.
