The Week That Was – #35

The Week That Was – #35

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

A look at the week that was and a little insight into the #bloglife, sharing things I just can’t share anywhere else! Highlights of the week It has felt like things started to get back to normal this week. Most people returned to work and I’ve had more emails come through, which is always a good thing. This week for me has been a week of getting things done and doing things I have wanted and needed to do! Everyone went out on Saturday, leaving me home alone with a box of semi-permanent pink hair colour. I love putting colours in my hair but I get a bit nervous sometimes that other people won’t like it, so I don’t do it. With my newfound ‘I don’t care’ attitude (read last week’s TWTW if you missed it) I had no reservations doing it. It didn’t take long at all and was actually pretty easy. Unlike past attempts, I actually took my time doing it and gave it my best ‘professional’ effort. It turned out amazing and I loved it! While I didn’t do it for anyone else, everyone I came across said they loved it too. My grandma, neighbours, friends – it was [...]

Highlights of the week This week we officially kicked off our YouTube Incubator with the guys at Changer Studios in Brisbane. What the heck is a YouTube Incubator? Well, in this instance, it’s an eight-week program run by Screen Queensland and the guys at Changer. It will connect the eight chosen channels with key experts who can educate us and share valuable insight on how we can meet our goals. Beyond that, for Matt and me, it’ll help us get closer to our big goal of our travel show! We met with the guys at Changer Studios this week and shared all our goals, strengths, weaknesses, what we do and don’t know, what we want to work on and more. It was really detailed and a great way for us to put into perspective where we’re at and what we want to get out of the program. Between now and our meeting next week, our channel is being analysed by one heck of an expert who knows a LOT about YouTube and its algorithm. I’m really excited to hear what he [...]

8 Easy ways to beat the back-to-work blues 

8 Easy ways to beat the back-to-work blues 

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

The end of the year brings much fun and excitement. We get to take time away from work, maybe go on holidays, spend time with loved ones, eat our favourite foods and completely disconnect from our day-to-day routine. It’s a much-needed opportunity to rest, recharge and refresh. Sadly, the holidays always come to an end and, sooner or later, we have to go back to work. Coming back to the office after such a great time away, staring down the barrel of another 12 months of work, can be overwhelming. To help you survive your return to the workplace after an epic festive season, here are 8 easy ways you can beat the back-to-work blues. 1. Start planning your next holiday This is my personal favourite suggestion on this list! While there’s a good chance you may not financially be ready to start splashing out money on a holiday post-festive season, that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning. Go to your favourite travel agent and get some brochures for inspiration, set the wallpaper on your phone and computer to your next holiday destination and pin a few photos, postcards or holiday inspiration around your desk. Rather than focusing on being [...]

Guide to Halong Bay Cruises in Vietnam Plus Our Cruise with The Au Co - Independent Travel Cats


Independent Travel Cats

Halong Bay is considered one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Vietnam, and a Halong Bay cruise is a must-do on many travelers' lists. Imagine an emerald bay peppered with about 2,000 tiny vegetation-topped islands which feature numerous caves, lagoons, coves, and coral reefs. This breathtaking UNESCO heritage site has recently received the honor of being named one of the New Seven Natural Wonders of the world and is not surprisingly one of the most popular attractions in Vietnam. Most visitors need little convincing to visit, but the array of cruise options can be daunting as hundreds of boats ply across the waters of Halong Bay each day. Cruises range widely in price and companies offer a variety of cruise lengths, itineraries, amenities, and activities. We'll share our tips on how to choose a Halong Bay cruise, answer common questions about Halong Bay cruises, and review our own recent Halong Bay cruise with The Au Co.

Vietnam has become very dangerous for Chinese People - the Reasons behind

by noreply@blogger.com (marhas) @ Treasures of Vietnam

At least 21 dead and nearly 100 injured in Vietnam after riots. Crowds set fire to industrial parks they believed to belong to Chinese people and hunted down workers. Read more on theguardian.com. Thursday morning a mob of thousand people stormed a giant Taiwanese steel mill in Ha Tinh province, central Vietnam.

This came two days after other mobs burned and looted foreign-owned factories in south Vietnam, believing they were Chinese-run, though many were actually Taiwanese or South Korean.

Chinese nationals have fled out of Vietnam. Cambodian Interior Ministry Spokesman Khieu Sopheak told the Anadolu Agency on Thursday that nearly 600 Chinese citizens had left Vietnam through the Bavet border crossing on Wednesday.

Anti-Chinese sentiment in Vietnam goes back to the time, when it was a Chinese colony - more than thousand years ago.

But there are more reasons for the Vietnamese people to be angry at Chinese people, as chinhdangvu.blogspot.com points out. Vietnamese are livid about China's attempt to drill for oil in waters claimed by Vietnam. But this is not the only reason. "Over the past few years there have been dozens of strikes at foreign-owned plants in Vietnam. Complaints about low pay, bad workplace conditions (poor canteen food, limits on using the toilet and so on) and bullying management have triggered disputes", writes Bill Hayton on bbc.com. These complaints have focused on plants owned by Taiwanese, Korean, Thai and Singaporean. And some factories, particularly Taiwanese-owned plants, "have been employing Chinese workers in favour of local Vietnamese".

The riots have consequences: Foxconn, the Taiwanese company that manufacturers iPhones and iPads for Apple, has shut operations in Vietnam for three days according to Financial Times. Meanwhile Samsung, which is a large investor in Vietnam, and Canon, the Japanese camera maker, said they had no plans to halt operations in the country. But Vietnam's Council of Taiwanese Chambers of Commerce has issued a warning to Chinese businesses that may be targeted in the next few days. It urged these firms to raise the Vietnamese flag over their offices and to remove or cover Chinese characters on their buildings or gates, reports South China Morning Post.

Police has detained about 1,300 people in anti-Chinese protests that have recently swept across southern and central Vietnam, a source in Vietnamese police told ITAR-TASS on Friday.

Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung sent a text message to Vietnamese cellular subscribers yesterday. He wrote Patriotic Vietnamese shouldn’t allow “bad elements” to “harm the interests and images of the country”.

Vietnam has a lot to loose if its anti-Chinese riots continue, writes Quartz. Vietnam relies heavily on foreign investment and tourism. Industrial output from foreign-owned industries has been rising, and made up 46% of the country’s overall industrial output in 2012.

Hanoi mourns turtle Cu Rua - and Vietnams Communist Party is worried

Hanoi mourns turtle Cu Rua - and Vietnams Communist Party is worried

by noreply@blogger.com (marhas) @ Treasures of Vietnam



The death of a turtle has shocked Vietnams Communist Party: The Yangtze giant softshell turtle Cu Rua was found dead in Hoan Kiem Lake in the centre of Hanoi. A legend says that the turtle - believed to be more than 100 years old - was the incarnation of a mythical creature living in the lake in the 15th Century. According to the legend Le Loi, who became emperor of Vietnam, borrowed a magical sword to fight against Vietnam's Chinese oppressors. After claiming independence, he came to the lake and returned the sword to a giant turtle in the lake. Thats how Hoan Kiem lake got its name: the Lake of the Returned Sword.

Some in the Communist Party, where a power struggle is ongoing and that started its Congress on Thursday, saw the death of Cu Rua as bad omen. Censors tried to prevent media to report the death, reported bbc.com. But the news of the death via Social Media could not be stopped.

The National Party Congress takes place every five years. Around the 12th Congress, opened on Thursday, there has been a lot of speculation about the outcome: the elections of the general secretary and the Prime Minister, the two top posts of the country. Anti-Chinese sentiments in Vietnam have grown in the past years after China’s actions in the South China Sea, where Vietnam and its larger northern neighbor both claim sovereignty over islands. The congress will end on January 28. General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong is expected to keep his post according to aljazeera.com, "albeit for half the five-year term in an apparent compromise with his rival, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung".

The Week That Was – #34

The Week That Was – #34

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

A look at the week that was and a little insight into the #bloglife, sharing things I just can’t share anywhere else! Highlights of the week Happy New Year! Last we spoke, I was wrapping things up for 2017 and getting ready to enjoy a little bit of time off. Christmas came and went quickly, as it always does. I made a big family dinner on Christmas Eve and found myself in bed early. Both Matt and I woke up early and excited on Christmas morning, bouncing out of bed before 6am, doing our best not to wake my sister and cousins, despite how much we really wanted to. We sat together and opened presents then had breakfast together. Afterward, we joined Matt’s family for a delicious Christmas lunch. In true Aussie Christmas style, the kids were in and out of all the pool all day, there was plenty of delicious food and yummy drinks, all topped off with an insanely huge and absolutely amazing pavlova. It was a great Christmas. When I was younger I was a little too obsessed with having the perfect, epic New Year’s Eve. Now, it’s far more low-key and far more enjoyable – a Netflix [...]
