Lantern Festival Gamuda is like a small “Hoi An” scene right in Hanoi, starting from October 1, 2017 to the end of the month at Yen So Park. On the mid-autumn night, the event attracted many couples and people in Hanoi.
Although knowing that day is a mid-autumn day, I still turned on Uber Drive app and took 3 trips. I wished to archive the first target soon to go back the hometown at weekend. Then, I broke my promise to my friend, at first I decided to see her at 7h30 but until 8h00 I just picked her up because of the traffic jam when driving Uber. However, we had a lot of awesome moments with charm and beauty of the festival.
Here are some memorial photos in this event

UberMOTO is a service of UBER (a smart mobile-app), it allows riders can get the nearest motobike and compute payments automatically. It was officially operated in April 21st, 2016 in Hanoi and HCMC, it’s now getting more and more popular because of its convenient and saving.
I started joining Uber as a part-time motodriver over 2 months ago and really interested in this job. No need to say, the first is earning money without pushing for time. I can ride on my motobike whenever I want. The second is improving my communication skills, I am a shy and quiet person so facing with strangers make me feel more confident.
Moreover, sometimes I suddently grab foreigners and tell some funny stories to them, listen their life stories through long roads. This is not only the best opputunity to partise English face to face, but also having good income.
There were unforgeted memories that I have never forgot. A older woman called me while I was in another trip to the Reft of Red River, I accepted this trip and let her wait for a while. When getting to the destination, a man asked me for carring him. I decided to call back her and require cancelling the trip but, Unfortunately, She is an unpleasanted person. She scared me that if I had cancelled this trip, she would have reported this to the administrators. Unluckily, this was the first time I went to this area, so I used the navigator by Google Maps but it took me the wrong roads then she saw in the app and called me again and again many times. Afterthat, just about 30 minute later, I found her, I do not know what to say. I tried to explain and sorry her though she shout at me like cat and dog. Finally, she still rode my motobike and kept going the trip. while driving, I tried to strick up a conversation with her, and healed the mistakes. She glanced my mobile and gave me a change more than the payment showed in the screen. This was a moral for my life.
A lot of trips made me grow as a adulthood. among of them, there were conversations with strangers as if friends for a long time.

Let’s listen to his song: Yêu Là “tha thu” meaning Love is forgive.

Once upon a time, there were two neighbors living next to each other. One of them was a retired teacher and another was an insurance agent who had a lot of interest in technology. Both of them had planted different plants in their garden. The retired teacher was giving a small amount of water to his plants and didn’t always give a full attention to them, while the other neighbor interested in technology, had given a lot of water to his plants and looked after them too well.
The retired teacher’s plants were simple but looked good. The insurance agent’s plants were much fuller and greener. One day, during the night, there was a heavy rain and a wind due to a minor storm. Next morning, both of the neighbors came out to inspect the damage to their garden. The neighbor who was an insurance agent saw that his plants came off from the roots and were totally destroyed. But, the retired teacher’s plants were not damaged at all and were standing firm.
The insurance agent neighbor was surprised to see it, he went to the retired teacher and asked, “We both grew the same plants together, I actually looked after my plants better than you did for yours, and even gave them more water. Still, my plants came off from the roots, while yours didn’t. How is that possible?”
The retired teacher smiled and said, “You gave your plants more attention and water, but because of that they didn’t need to work themselves for it. You made it easy for them. While I gave them just an adequate amount of water and let their roots search for more. And, because of that, their roots went deeper and that made their position stronger. That is why my plants survived”.
Moral: This story is about parenting where children are like plants. If everything is given to them, they will not understand the hard work it takes to earn those things. They will not learn to work themselves and respect it. Sometimes it’s best to guide them instead of giving them. Teach them how to walk, but let them follow their path.
