Earth Hour is an annual event, it holds on the last Saturday in March. The main goal is to raise the awareness of people in saving energy by turning off the unnecessary lights as well as equipment.
Nowadays, scientists prove that our planet is hotter and hotter, most reasons come from human beings, we destroy the forests and pollute the environment. This is a part of the increase in greenhouse gases and climate change. Recently, We can see a lot of erratic weather effects and natural disasters in many places on earth.
That’s why we come here together. With the enthusiasm of youth, we wish to turn ideas into action, want to have a better place for the future.
Initially, we had a group of four (2 girls and 2 boys) from FFL volunteer team. From childhood, all of us had a passion for this event in common. But after a few days of practice, two girls gave up, I don’t know what’s the cause Anyway, the others still pursue our decision to the main event.

On Sunday night of December 11, 2016. We had a chance to visit Landmark 72 otherwise known as Keangnam, it’s one of the tallest towers in Vietnam.
The begin of the story started from my younger sister, Hue. To take advantage of the holiday, she visited our boarding-house and stayed there until almost evening. After having dinner together with my older, younger brothers and me. I wondered why will we go somewhere for relaxing? Hue suggested us discovering the tallest floor of Keangnam and we all agreed with her idea, Huyen was coming at that time.
The journey started at 7:30 PM, we reached the destination just about 10 minutes from my house. My older brother paid almost 1 million vnđ in total for 5 tickets. Of course, The average cost per ticket is 200.000 vnđ on Sunday night.
Here are some videos and photos were recorded and taken by me:
Inside the elevator. Because of reduced air pressure, we were slightly tinnitus.

Another semester is over again, the time is not waiting for anybody! I wondered what did I learn from these courses?
It was not only acquisition of knowledge but also experience a lot of new things. I tried learning how to become an actor or even a fool person. Actually, I have opportunities to experience like that such a wonderful thing.
The question is where is our teacher?
Yes, It’s hard to recognise, because she’s too young just older than me one year old. But I felt more motivative when learning with a beautiful teacher like her.
We had a wonderful time together. This is a small farewell party. We get together around the table.
Learning Japanese class. We bought our teacher a ton of surprises by singing her favorite songs.
Especially, We have a chance to study with Chinese students from Guangxi University of Science and Technology, Listening and Speaking subject.
Nowadays, shopping is becoming popular in our life, I have two questions for you. Please give me your opinions about shopping habit. The first question is: How does advertising influence what people choose to buy?
Tran Thi Viet My: I think if the advertisement gives the essential uses that people need. They will tend to buy this product. However, when the advertisement is boring, people often ignore it not only is the content important but the creative of the advertising decides the view of the consumer.
Huynh Nhat Le: In my opinion, advertising influence people’s behavior negatively because it almost deprive us of free and conscious will while choosing what to spend money on.
Nguyen Thuy Linh: If there were no advertising and you went to a shop, then you would just buy what you wanted based on may be what others have told you, what the product look like, or depending on the products, what it says on the label. Advertising build a band because they have seen it on television and on elsewhere.
Le Van Huynh: In my opinion, advertising provides us facilities for choosing products. Thanks to it, we can learn the advantage as well as disadvantage of the products. For instance, when advertising a product, companies mention that what kind of matters are used into the product. Therefore, we know whatever this product is good or bad and healthy or not healthy for each person. Due to this reason. Due to this reason, it’s easier for people to choose it.
Vu Thi Nga: For me, advertising has many influences what people choose to buy. Nowadays, on the internet has much advertising attract people to buy their products. When they introduce products, they usually present the good sides, good price, and images. Furthermore, they also bring some quality and effects of products. Besides, the buyer’s market also introduce and advertising products, even when you buy one product, you will be given on other it. They use the way to entice buyers.
Tran Thi Viet My: Ah, moreover, the advertising is not truthful with the quality of the product, it will make customers disappointed and never buy anything in advertising.
Ok, the second question: Do you think that recent changes in the way people live have affected general shopping habits? Why or why not?
Nguyen Thuy Linh: Definitely, lifestyle has greatly changed people’s habit of shopping. The range of necessity has also enhanced to a great extent.
Tran Viet My: Nowadays, the internet is developing more and more so many people often go shopping online. It is an interesting way. They can buy anything they want without wasting time to go to the shop. It leads to decrease the traffic jam.
Le Van Huynh: There are many ways for people to buy goods, the most change nowadays is shopping online. It is more and more popular because it is convenient. People become lazier, they just stay at home and choose to buy what they want and you will receive it quickly.
Huynh Thi Nhat Le: Currently, people have started for branded products and thus the markets are also providing them with the desired items. The changes are notable and it is done by advertisement. While people in the past mostly purchased products and goods they mostly needed, people nowadays purchase more than they actually need.
Vu Thi Nga: In my opinion, when people change their life, the way using the money to go shopping which has affected to life and habit. Because their life changes, the mentality also changes. They regarded shopping as hobbies while they have free time. And people worldwide are becoming more materialistic. A lot of people have much money, they buy products on the internet, they need nice design without caring quality products. When they receive goods and use it. They speak scornfully it about bad quality. Therefore, I think buying online or markets should watch quality products to have good or not.
Vu Thi Nga: Finally, thank you for your cooperation.
Although this is slightly expensive for me, it was really an awesome experience when going to beautiful places on the holiday that I thought that I was the most lonely person in the solar system.
The story started off when I received a Hang’s message on Facebook. She wanted to take a trip to The reef on Red river or somewhere was nearly that place. The goal was having in her own nice photos or just selfie. To have a meaning day, I suggested her going to HCM Mausoleum because this is an important place where Ho uncle gave a speech to all of Vietnamese on this day 71 years ago. By the way, I also wanted to visit here to see what’s changing after 8 years from the last time I went there.
Everything was going according to plan, I guided her to take a bus route and waited for her at the bus stop which was nearly the HCM Mausoleum.
The first stop: the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.
On September 2nd, 2016 many people flock to this place to commemorate the great father of the nation. Unfortunately, We have to give up the first intent, The truth that we were late already and don’t have time to wait for 3 km long queue. There were estimated over 31.000 people come here in the morning (According to VNE) that was incredible.
I just took a selfie photo for this stop.
The final stop: The reef on Red river
From HCM Mausoleum, We took a bus number 38 and went down at Au Co Street. About 15 minutes for a walk from the main street, We reached the gate of this place. Ticket price here is currently about 50,000 VND for each person. With this ticket, you can stay here up to the whole day. According to feeling my heart, the place is large and gorgeous. It’s better if you go with your girlfriend or boyfriend. There are a ton of amazing scenes for you to get beautiful photos.
Here are some photos gathering from my friend’s phone:
Yeah, I just look into why people here call it is “the Red river”.
She’s Hang. I assure that selfie is the most favorite thing she wishes to do when coming to somewhere like this.
She is Hang’s friend. Actully we’ve known each other just this day. Once again, I have to say that she is just my friend, and there is not any other relatives. I do not dare post these photos on facebook, if not I may still be forever alone. In addition, there were 4 ones came here (2 boys and 2 girls) but the other boy was ashamed of taking photo, so I don’t have any photo about him.
That’s right. I am a farmer planting flowers.
is sympathetic face hah?
An old farmer took a selife with mother’s hot girl
