Immigrant Experience

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of any well written, frequently updated blogs or forums of recent Vietnamese immigrants and their experiences with the new culture? Just doing some research and most of what I find is related to immigrants of the 70's-80's.

Have you tried to Sub-forum for Vietnam? You could see if anyone has said anything, and you can also inquire for information or stories about their journey.

Also, you can check the "Moving to the US and your new life in America" forum.

Good luck on your journey!!

I did a little bit of checking prior to my wife's arrival, and did not find anything recent. Then again, I was looking for English-language sites. To the extent they exist, it's likely any forum would be in Vietnamese. My sense of it is Vietnamese immigrants share information between one-another (friends and family)...perhaps on Facebook. Just a thought.

Best of luck in your search!

That looks like it'd be interesting to watch. Looks like it's relatively impossible to come by online. Only the trailer seems to be available.

Yeah I was trying to find the actual film, but that was all that seems to be around. I never watched that but someone I know did, and they mentioned that girl was kind of a spoiled brat to begin with, since her family was well off (she had maids to do her stuff back in Vietnam). But then again, it's fairly affordable to get a housekeeper I guess, but still she must've had money to be an international student.
