The Way God Helps

There was a small village by the river. Everyone lived happily and offered regular prayers at the village temple (Church). Once during the monsoon season, it rained heavily. The river started overflowing and flood entered the village. Everyone started to evacuate their homes and set out to go to the safe place.

One man ran to the temple (Church). He quickly went to the priest’s room and told him, “The flood water has entered into our homes and it is rising quickly. And water has also started to enter the temple. We must leave the village as in no time it will sink under the water! Everyone has set out to go to the safer place and you must come along”. The priest told the man, “I am not an atheist like you all and I have a full faith in God. I trust the God that he will come to save me. I will not leave the temple, You may go!” So, the man left.

Soon, the water level started to rise and reached the waist height. The priest climbed on the desk. After a few minutes, a man with the boat came to rescue the priest. He told the priest, “I was told by the villagers that you are still inside the temple, so I have come to rescue you, please climb on the boat”. But the priest again refused to leave giving him the same reason. So the boatman left.

The water kept rising and reached to the ceiling, so the priest climbed to the top of the temple. He kept praying to the God to save him. Soon the helicopter came, they dropped the rope ladder for the priest and asked him to climb on and get inside the helicopter so they can take him to the safer place. But the priest refused to leave by giving him the same reason again! So the helicopter left to search and help others.

At last, when the temple nearly submerged under the water, the priest kept his head up and started complaining, “Oh Lord, I worshiped you for all my life and kept my faith in you! Why didn’t you come to save me?!” The God appeared in front of him and with a smile, he said, “Oh mad man, I came to save you three times! I came running to you to ask you to leave for the safest place with other villages, I came with a Boat, I came with a Helicopter! What is my fault if you didn’t recognize me?!”

The priest realized his mistake and asked for forgiveness. He got his chance to go to the safe place one more time, which he accepted.

Moral: In life, opportunities come unknowingly without any recolonization. We fail to recognize it and keep complaining that life didn’t give us the opportunity to lead a successful life. Always take every chance you get to make a better life.

A trip to Hai Phong City with co-workers

This is my first trip to the beach. Although, my hometown province is near the South China Sea, I haven’t even reach these areas. I feel really excited at first, but everything has gone not so good at all.

Anyway, I still wish to write something to leave here some memories about my first experience.

Here are some photos I want to show you:

Tired faces after swimming in the sea, but try to turn up smiled ones while taking photos.


The reason I felt disappointed was not about the scenery or people in Haiphong, It was some weird actions of my friends who I hung out with that made me not fall asleep well.

[Vietsub] – All Of Me – John Legend

All Of Me – John Legend
[Verse 1]
What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawin’ me in and you kickin’ me out
You got my head spinnin’, no kiddin’
I can’t pin you down
What’s goin’ on in that beautiful mind?
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me
But I’ll be alright

[Pre-Hook]
My head’s under water, but I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Hook]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose, I’m winning

[Post-Hook]
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh-oh

A long journey to Bai Dinh pagoda, Ancient Trang An and Ancient Capital Hoa Lu

 The story begins with my status included a shared link film with a broken plan to hang out with high school friends on Facebook. In the comment field, Hue, my sister suggested me traveling some places discovering in Tet holiday with relatives. After one day of discussing, we decided to choose Trang An landscapes complex in Ninh Binh province is my destination.

 On the day before the trip, the first time, we have 6 participants. but after considering the weather and others, just 4 are okay, the rests have their own reasons and cannot take part in. Although knowing that the weather is not good for us as well as there are a few participants, we still not give up because of our determined spirit.

Next day, with well-prepared food, drink, gas, the trip including me, Hue, Huyen, Vui. We begin the trip at 7:10 A.M, the destination is far about 70km from Thai Binh so it takes nearly an hour and a half on the trip.

We are present at the first stop point: Bai Dinh Pagoda, Ninh Binh. we put our motorbike in the bike park and continue to take a walk to the main gate. My first impression on the pagoda is the WC.  Its architecture is like a temple, very wide and modern. The pagoda is really huge and stunning, it cannot be explored in a day.

 

We decide to go to the tallest bronze statue first

And take some selfie photos here

People come here a lot to wish a lucky year and success

People said that if someone rubs their money to the statue, they will earn a lot of money in this year.

then we go to the temple with stone turtles. I do not know exactly the name

Touching the turtles’ head makes us more intelligent. (Hearsay)

After having lunch, we continue the journey by climbing to the highest pagoda, the ancient pagoda.

Due to some reasons, we just take photos outside the pagoda.

In front of the main pagoda.

Mrs. Lan, one of the people have the merit in building the Bai Dinh pagoda. Here is the ceremony to remember her.

The tower is quite high with about 17 floors. There are no windows to look outside, just only an entrance door. You have to buy a ticket if you wish to go inside.

Buy some souvenirs for family members.

We go back to the bike park after 3 hours staying here and continue our trip to the second stop point the ancient Trang An.

At 12:00 P.M,  We ride our bikes and go to the next destination.

 

A lot of young people come here to experience climbing the mountain and sitting on the boat for sightseeing.

We check-in at the entrance gate

And before climbing the mount

During also…

Challenge me by standing at the highest point

Three of us are venturous?

Is dancing flagpole?

After 2 hours staying at the second stop point, we move to the third one. However, everything is not good as we expected.  When we just arrive the gate, many people wave and call us to park the bike, though we know exactly there is a free parking inside the gate, we still spend 15k VND on this. We think that it’s Mua cave, just go inside and discover. Otherwise, we have to climb the mount again. Actually, we exhausted already. Moreover, The ticket is 100k VND, it’s also quite expensive for us. After checking in, we decide to give up the Mua Cave and take a trip to the ancient capital Hoa Lu.

Le Dai Hanh King temple is known as Le Hoan King

Dinh Tien Hoang King Temple is  known as Dinh Bo Linh King

We spend 20K VND buying the ticket for each person. I do not know why they just accept our tickets when going inside Dinh Tien Hoang King Temple, the other is completely free to enter.

And we go back home at 4:30 P.M. At that time, it’s raining already. we do not wear any raincoat to celebrate this day whether we catch a cold or not.

Go to Ninh Binh, I really impressed with the the majestic mountains that I do not see any in my hometown. Such a memorial day!

Spend one day hanging out with high school friends at Ecopark

Unlike every year. we have a unique reunion this year, Both the participants and the method. The main reason lack of people is the number of people get married and busy with their own job, others are too far from hometown and cannot come back on time. the other is selected by members of the class group.

At first, We decided to travel to Bai Dinh, Trang An. However, a lot of them get drunk on the night before the trip, they can get up on time. So it was stood over. skip a day, we continue the trip to another place suggested by Thao. That is Ecopark.

On February 20, 2018, five of us (Including me, Cuong, B.Hang, M.Tam, and B.Duong) meet at Giang’s house and begin the trip to Ecopark, it’s about 50 km long. take us 2 hours. We spend all the morning to find a store and hire Ao Dai but can’t find any ones. Let’s everything happen in its ways, we dress up our clothes.

And here are photos I want to show you:
