Vietnamese Food Essay
Vietnamese cuisine can be very diverse due its geography and climate. There is no accurate average
temperature for the whole country. The Vietnamese national culture emerged from a concrete living
environment: a tropical country with many rivers and the confluence of great cultures (Vietnam
Country). Vietnam is a long, narrow country in Southeast of Asia that borders south China, east of
Laos and Cambodia. Vietnam is practically the size of Italy and Japan put together; and is divided
into three regions: north, central, and south. Vietnam has variety types of food for every occasion,

Vietnamese society. What is pho? Well Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup, but there are two type
of common pho and that is Pho Bo (beef noodle soup) and Pho Ga(chicken soup). Pho Bo is beef
broth and that is made by the stewing of a cow bones in a large pot for quite some time. Pho Ga is

Vietnamese Culture
Vietnamese by birth, my parents were the first in their families to immigrate to this land of infinite
opportunities in pursuit of a higher education and superior life. Although they have somewhat
assimilated American culture into their lives and allowed my brother and I to absorb it, they haven't
let us forget our Vietnamese heritage. Being integrated into Vietnameseculture, its ancient history,
language, and old fashioned customs, has caused me to reconcile and balance the differences
between the typical life of an American child and the one imposed upon me by my parents'
deep–rooted traditional beliefs.
Thus I don't just live in two cultures, but in between. I'm different in both cultures, unable to
perfectly fit in either of them. So much effort is put into my academics that people perceive me
as a "nerd" in the Western world, while there's not enough effort or intelligence for the Eastern. In
the Eastern, my skin is too dark and exposing too much skin isn't appropriate and the Western, my
style is too conservative. Overall, I've been criticized for being too "Americanized" or too
"Asianized". Forced to conform in order to be accepted by each world separately, I was living
two different lives. As time went by, I realized it wasn't necessary to show only half of myself and
hide the other half to each world. It was okay that everyone couldn't be pleased and I accepted the
fact that I'm a product of two beautiful cultures....show more content...
I learned not to go with society's norm, but redefine it for myself. It has also taught me how to
look at situations from different perspectives and make the best decisions for me. I became a
person who is confident, accepting, and able to balance life priorities. By being accepting, I
developed relationships with a largely diverse group of people, spanning every race. This
influenced me to have greater diversity in my ideas and views on

This is a very important ceremony, by remembered the ancestors is already showing respect to
them. It is not depending on a big or a small ceremony. Historically, Vietnam has used at least three
types of script used in official texts, such as the Kanji alphabet, the NГґm alphabet, and the national
language, because Vietnam was dominated by feudal yoke of China during the period more than a
thousand years, so most texts are written in Kanji. Thereby, we can see that Kanji has an enormous
impact on the culture of Vietnam's past. Since the tenth century, although Vietnam won
independence, freedom from the yoke of the feudal north, but Kanji from the Chinese still there and
continues to be an important means to develop Vietnam's cultural. Until the dynasty of King Quang
Trung, he has modified Kanji to NГґm. It is a kind of cultural self–construction on the basis of lines,
components and method of the Chinese character's structure to record in Vietnamese. But until
1621, the national language – the handwriting and voice of the present Vietnam, was created by the
cleric of the Western missionaries in Vietnam, where Alexandre De Rhodes was the greatest
inventor of the new language. The cleric borrowed and combined the Latin alphabet for recording
the syllable of location and local character's names, since then it has experienced periods of
formation of the national language, it was the contribution of the Vietnamese as well as foreigners.

The main religions of Vietnam are Buddhist, Taoist, Roman Catholic, indigenous beliefs, Muslim,
Protestant, Cao Dai, Hoa Hao. Currently, seventy percent of the population is Buddhists by religion
or their thinking or behavior is governed by Buddhist philosophies. Catholics occupy Bui Chu–Phat
Diem in the northern province of Ninh Binh and towards the South it occupies Ho Nai–Bien Hoa in
Dong Nai Province. The followers of Islam occupy the central region of the central coast of Vietnam.
Majority of the Islam followers are from the Cham ethnic minority group. Members of the same
household live together, work together, and gather together for marriages, funerals, Tet (lunar New
Year) celebrations, and rituals marking the anniversary of an ancestor's death. Family members look
first to other family members for help and counsel in times of personal crisis and protected the
interests of the family in making personal or household decisions. The extended family rather than
the nuclear one was the main family structure, often with three or even four generations, and usually
made up of grandparents, father and mother, children, and grandchildren, all living under the same
roof. Sometimes parents had more than one married son living with them, but this often led to such
stress that it was best for a second son to live separately. All
