In Vietnam there is a festival called the Hùng Kings' Festival (or Giỗ Tổ Hùng Vương or lễ hội đền Hùng), which falls on the 8th to the 11th days of the third lunar month. The 10th day is the main day of the festival, and is a public holiday in Vietnam. The holiday exists to honour the Hùng Vương, or Hùng Kings. The Hùng Kings are traditionally the founders and first emperors of the nation.
For my roommates, this just means they got a Saturday off of work. So we decided to have a party on the roof of our apartment building. With 10 roommates we are kind of a party of our own anyway, but they invited a few more people who live in the area.
Our apartment building is 22 stories high (or something like that). Also we are totally allowed to be up here. This might seem rebellious. It is not.
We (well my roommates. I don't really cook ha) made a big buffet of taco fillings.
We brought a grill up and cooked all kinds of meat and sea food.
And also we made pitchers of margaritas. That's important.
Pictures were taken.
The weather was perfect (It hovers in the 80's at night time)
And the food was super good.
My roommates are the best.
Then we went out to bars and played foosball and ate stale nachos and got overcharged. Good times.
Anyway. Like I said, I'm trying to get into teaching and start making some money. This weekend I have two demo classes at two separate schools (they basically throw you into a class and say 'k go for it'). So, fingers crossed, next time I write I should have been hired by at least one of the schools!
