Vietnam: See you all on the flip side

‘See you all on the flip side’. That's the parting shot from Vietnamese blogger, Toi La Nguoi. She (?) was forced to remove her blog in July because… “someone within my extended family has been relaying things he's read, in a very distorted fashion, to other members of my family. Nothing bad came of this but I had to remove the online journal to prevent further leaks. Older generation Vietnamese-Americans, particularly my parents, may not understand the experience. Least of all an experience that can be easily misinterpreted.”

Unfortunately, all archives are now gone except a forwarding email address.

  • What a shame he (not she) removed his blog and all its archives. I read his blog from time to time and he was able to give a tactile feel to life here in Southern Vietnam.
