    England’s Andrew Smith and Hong Kong’s Chan Yan Kit, who are ranked 15th and 26th in the world, will come to Ho Chi Minh City to compete in the Vietnam Badminton Open in mid-November, the organizers announced on Saturday.

    Ms. Huynh Ngoc Lien, vice chairwoman of the Ho Chi Minh City Badminton Association, said Smith and Chan would be the first and second seeds in the men’s singles, while Vietnamese champion Nguyen Tien Minh, at present ranked 60th in the world, would be number three.

    In the women’s singles, both the first and second seeds, Julia Wong and Mudukasan Sutheaswari, hail from Malaysia.

    The US $30,000 tournament has attracted 53 entries in the men’s singles, 30 in the women’s singles, 24 in the men’s doubles, 13 in the women’s doubles and 19 in the mixed doubles.

    We will see Chan Chong Ming/Hoon Thien How as well as Chew Choon Eng/Hong Chieng Hun in the Vietnam Open. CCM/HTH should get their first title as a pair in HCM City!

    I think the match of Choon Eng/Hong Chieng Hun(MAS-ranked 39) Vs NGUYEN Quang Minh/TRAN Thanh-Hai (VN - ranked 82) will show in SF.
    Minh/Hai are couple of men top player at Vietnam.i hope, they have a good match.

    Lyrics:

    Bonjour Vietnam

    Raconte-moi ce mot étrange et difficile à prononcer
    Que je porte depuis que je suis née.​

    Raconte-moi le vieil empire et le trait de mes yeux bridés,
    Qui disent mieux que moi ce que tu n’oses dire.​

    Je ne sais de toi que des images de la guerre,
    Un film de Coppola et des hélicoptères en colère.​

    Un jour, j’irai là-bas, un jour dire bonjour à ton âme
    Un jour, j’irai là-bas te dire bonjour, Vietnam.​

    Raconte-moi ma couleur, mes cheveux, et mes petits pieds,
    Qui me portent depuis que je suis née.​

    Raconte-moi ta maison, ta rue, raconte-moi cet inconnu,
    Les marchés flottants et les sampans de bois.​

    Je ne connais de mon pays que des photos de la guerre,
    Un film de Coppola et des hélicoptères en colère.​

    Un jour, j’irai là-bas, un jour dire bonjour à mon âme.
    Un jour, j’irai là-bas te dire bonjour, Vietnam.​

    Les temples et les Bouddhas de pierre pour mes pères,
    Les femmes courbées dans les rizières pour mes mères,​

    Dans la prière, dans la lumière, revoir mes frères,
    Toucher mon âme, mes racines, ma terre.​

    Un jour, j’irai là-bas, un jour dire bonjour à mon âme.
    Un jour, j’irai là-bas te dire bonjour, Vietnam.
    Te dire bonjour, Viêt-Nam. ​

    I visited Hanoi during Chinese New Year two years ago. Quite an experience! I have posted some pictures in this Forum.

    I think those who have origins in Vietnam and left during or after the Vietnam War should return for a visit to see things for themselves.

    Vietnam has opened up and is now a member of the WTO, in line with many of its Southeast Asian neighbours and ASEAN members. We hope Myanma will follow Vietnam, and Myanma should be more acceptable to the world as many of its citizens speak English, especially the older generation who were exposed to the British Administration.
