Yes don't give up!!! Dun say u, I also up to now still cant pronounce word in those 6 tones. I also use vdict the Hard Way. Know the context and select 1 that has the nearer meaning.

Bro blur185, don't feel disheartened and don't give up.
I can understand that if you don't understand the 6 different tones and consommants of the Vn language, it can be quite a challenge to use the v.dict.

Before I know this thread, the most common sentence I smsed to my Vn girls is "Toi kg hieu"!!:confused:

Finding the best in HCM City
=================================
VietNamNet Bridge Although shocked by the scorching heat and the out-of-control city traffic, tourists are still keen to visit HCMC as it remains a fun place full of lively people who, for the most part, seem happy to be living here. There are many attractions here that give tourists an insight into the culture, history and daily life of Vietnam.


One factor that makes HCMC exceptional is the contrast between the old and the new, the ancient and the modern. Although dressed up with towering buildings, business centers and luxury hotels and restaurants, the city still preserves many places and buildings from earlier eras.

Tourists are told to visit Notre Dame Cathedral which was built by the French between 1863 and 1880 with bricks from Marseille. These bricks have retained their red color until today. The cathedrals two 40 meter spires dominate the skyline and a statue of the Virgin Mary stands out front. The church is not only a place to discover colonial architecture, but a place for regular Christian services and a favorite place for Vietnamese brides and bridegrooms to have dozens of photos taken.

Reunification Palace in District 1 is a must-see for history buffs and is a historic landmark in HCMC. It was designed by architect Ngo Viet Thu as the home and workplace of the President of South Vietnam during the war and the site of the official handover of power on April 30, 1975.

The palace covers about 12 hectares and is surrounded by trees and lawns. Although destroyed during the war, it was renovated and preserved as an important historical site.

The War Remnants Museum in District 3 displays the horrors of modern combat and the suffering inflicted on the Vietnamese people. The museum houses a collection of weapons, machinery, artifacts and horrific photos illustrating the devastating affects of napalm, Agent Orange and other weapons of mass destruction.

The Cu Chi Tunnels, about an hours drive from the city center by bus, represent the bravery and strength of the Vietnamese people. This extraordinary underground maze is divided into several levels of tunnels almost 250 kilometers in length. The soil above is between three and four meters thick. The network included accommodations, meeting rooms, mess halls, hospitals and even a miniature cinema for an underground army of Vietnamese revolutionary soldiers who emerged from concealed trapdoors to fight and gradually grind down the will of the French and Americans.

The History Museum and the Fine Art Museum exhibit paintings, historical artifacts and antique collections. They are venues for locals and tourists to admire works of arts as well as to learn more about Vietnamese culture and history.

Municipal Theater Ho Chi Minh City, or HCMC Opera House, is a fine example of French colonial architecture.

Built in 1897 by French architect Ferret Eugene, the 800 seat hall is a venue for concerts and music festivals. This building was the home of the Lower House Assembly of South Vietnam from 1956 until 1975 when it became a theatre again. It was last renovated in 1995.

Suoi Tien Theme Park in District 9, mainly for children and young people, is a fun place to relax with a roller coaster, water slides, an artificial beach and lake, and hungry crocodiles that love to be fed. Can Gio Ecology Tourism Park is a great place for nature lovers to find some head space in the green tranquility of the forest and sea.

China Town in District 5 is immediately distinguished by its fascinating labyrinth of Chinese-named streets, temples, restaurants, exotic stores, medicine shops and markets. Here, tourists can step into Binh Tay Market with its bustling trade or visit Thien Hau Pagoda to burn incense for good luck and good health.

Ben Thanh Market and An Dong Market are great for buying Vietnamese souvenirs and specialties, including food and household items.

Why not take a bus, bicycle or cyclo around HCMC to experience the amazing scenes and vote for your favorite city attractions at Saigon 100 Exciting (http://www.hcmc100e.info?)

Hi to all my fellow Tieng Viet enthusiasts,

Just wanted to share with you all my pet project.

Basically, I personally feel that Tieng viet is a very difficult language to master simple by reading. More importantly, you need to listen more and speak more.

For those who do not have the luxury of visiting JC / GL often (like me), for whatever reason (time and money like me), I may have found a simple substitute.

May I present to you... (drum roll)

learnvietthrumusic.forumotion.net

a free forum (non profit) with translations of my favourite KTV songs. I realised that through viet songs, I managed to pronounce words better and understand the language better.

I hope that this resource will be helpful to all bros who wish to master the language faster, and in the process, learn to sing a few nice songs to impress your bx and VBs.

I look forward to your comments as to how to make the site better, your active contributions towards the site, and your requests as to which other songs you wish to have translated.

This is still in trial version for my bros here only. So far, I have only managed to translate 10 songs but this number is set to grow very soon. I intend to take this site into the public domain so may I request that nothing about JC or geylang or lam tinh be discussed there?

Thanks all!

I realised that through viet songs, I managed to pronounce words better and understand the language better.

I listen many viet song but till now never know the meaning of the songs. I don't sing many viet song either.. only 2 or 3 songs but dunno meaning.. sing no feeling.

I think I have to use this method to brush up my tieng viet roi. Else my standard always stuck at JC/GL standard. Never improve.

I always thought that go and drink more viet gals saliva, I can improve. :(

That's why I started this, to help you understand the meaning of the songs.

So next time must hear you sing with feelings liao ok? Must see your VBs shed tears.

越语轻松学,轻松学越语,你现在第一次在我们的节目当中为大家播出这个单元,为大家邀请到的就是台北市中山 社稷大学越南语言与文化的陈凰凤陈老师,来跟陈老师打个招呼,

hello,陈老师!

大家好,我是陈凰凤。

陈老师应该是很多听众朋友都非常熟悉哦,那么她在中山社稷大学开设了两门课程,一个是我们的《越南姐妹学中 文》,另外一个课程是《越南语言与文化》,而且呢陈老师编写的这个教材今年还获得了台北市政府教育局颁发的 优良教程,哇,真是太棒了。

也算是优良课程,是整个课程,我在教授方面跟我编写方面。

哦,所以呢,我们就在节目当中安排了这个小单元,邀请大家一起来轻松的学越语,好让越语可以轻轻松松地学习 。好,那今天因为是第一次单元的播出,当然我们要学的就是最基本的hello。

我们在哪里都一样,第一次碰到一个不认识的人或是曾经见过的人,我们都会先打招呼对不对,那今天我想介绍我 们这个单元就要如何打招呼哦。嗯,只是在越南跟我们台湾有一点不太一样,我们如果在台湾碰到一个人,只要说 你好,你好!,嗯,然后或是我们早上碰到,可以说早安,或是晚上也可以说晚安,对不对,可是我 们越南不分时段,我们每一个时段碰到一个陌生人,或是曾经认识过的人,我们都不用分时段,好, 那我就讲了哦

Xin cho

对 Xin chao 就是您好的意思,我们越南人不分时段,每个时段都可以这样讲。但是呢,越南人是很重视感情的,在很多方 面称呼的称谓部分,都用很亲切的方式来称呼对方。

如果对方年纪比我大,然后是男生,那我就可以叫他

anh

anh就是男生的你,也是哥哥的意思。

如果是男生,对我来说是长辈,或者是社会地位比较高的,或是我们不方便叫他哥哥的时候,我们可 以叫他

ng

ng 就是先生的意思,是比较尊敬、比较礼貌的称呼。

如果是对方是女生,年纪比我们大一点,我可以叫对方

Chị

Chị就是姐姐的意思,也是女生的你。

如果一个男生碰到一个女生,不方便叫人家姐姐的话,可以叫对方小姐,那么小姐怎么讲呢?就是

C

如果是男生、女生,年纪比我们小,那算是我们的晚辈,我们就可以叫他

Em

em是统称,男女都不分的,就是小弟弟、小妹妹我们都叫对方em。

好,现在我们来回顾一下,我们刚讲的Xin chao。

Xin chao 是我们一般和别人打招呼。

那如果我们想亲切一点跟对方打招呼,就可以说

Chao anh 就是哥哥你好

Chao ng 就是先生您好,就是刚才说的比较礼貌一点的。

Chao chị 就是姐姐你好。

Chao c 就是小姐你好。

Chao em 就是对小弟弟、小妹妹的问候。

平常在越南,男生跟女生交往,如果是情侣的,男生会称自己是anh,称对方叫em,而女生会称自己是em, 称对方叫anh,所以请起来很亲切。如果你听到一对男女在讲话的时候,男生都称自己是anh,女生都称自己 是em,可能我们会才对方是男女朋友、或是情侣,或是夫妻。

To Recommend a good dictionary for learning tieng viet

You may have the same feelings as me that vdict.com is not very good sometimes. There are some simple words which cannot be found on vdict.com and it does not provide Chinese translation (As we know, some words in tieng Viet are directly translated from Chinese).

Recently I went to HCMC and bought a very good Dictionary. I would like to recommend this dictionary to interested brothers here. If you want to learn tieng viet but doesn't know which dictionary to use, you can try this one:

By: Huynh Dieu Vinh
Tu Dien
Viet-Han
越汉辞典

Publisher is Hieu Sach Ngoc Mai
Red cover

The price is only VND44,000!!

This is what I learn recently.

There are some modal particles in Vietnamese (used at the end of a question) such as vay, the, day (w/o) tones. These particles have no lexical meaning but they do add some emotional meanings in spoken language (to make the conversation more interactive). They can be used interchangeably.

Examples:
1) Hom nay em dinh lam gi vay?
2) May gio em di lam the?
3) Em dang di dau day?

However, another modal particle, nhe, is used when the speaker makes a suggestion and expects the listener to agree with him/her.

Best example: bay gio em di khach san voi anh nhe!

It's all the lessons by the same teacher, just that it's all available for download. The videos are in FLV format. You should be able to open it with VLC Player. If any of you guys wants the video in MP4 format (to view on your iPod/iPhone/iTouch), drop me a PM.

李总理将亲往海防市主持仪式
========================================
(2009-11-17)


李显龙总理接受越南总理阮晋勇的邀请,明年初将赴越南北部一级城市海防市一起为第四座最能体现两国密切合作 关系的越南新加坡工业园主持动土仪式。

  纳丹总统昨晚在总统府为越南国家主席阮明哲而设的国宴上讲话时,形容于1996年在平阳省落成的第一座 ,以及后来分别在北宁省和海防市增建的越新工业园已成为代表新越两国的密切经济合作与日益加强的双边关系 的耀眼象征。

规模最大越新工业园

  阮明哲在国宴上致辞时也赞扬越新工业园已在越南成为著名商标,突显了新越成功的合作关系,并表示期待李 总理明年一月到海防市为占地1600公顷,为至今规模最大的越新工业园主持动土仪式。他应纳丹总统邀请,昨 天起对我国作两天国事访问。

  除了海防市越新工业园,新越合资发展的另外三座工业园分别是平阳省的两座,即越新工业园和平阳省城镇与 工业园,以及近两年开发的北宁省越新工业园。

  纳丹总统说,新越双方的高层互访相当频密,使双边政治关系有了稳固的基础。与此同时,尽管面对环球金融 风暴的冲击,两国经济关系还是继续深化。而新越不断加快的民间交流与不断扩大的文化联系,也有助推动双边关 系。

  随着双边关系的拓展,两国应继续寻找新的合作领域。新越最近签订的国防合作协定代表双边关系的另一里 程碑。我们希望这将为两国的国防机构进一步发展友谊提供平台。

  对此,阮明哲表示同意,并指出除了政治与经济,两国在教育、培训、旅游、文化、科技、安全、国防等方面 的合作,使双边友好合作关系更积极。

  我希望重申越南同新加坡长期继续发展密切与牢固的合作关系的高度意愿。我们一直将新加坡视为越南各个 领域最重要的区域合作伙伴之一。

两国在2005年签订《新越联系框架协定》,为双方在贸易与服务、投资、教育与培训、信息科技、金融及交通 这六个主要领域提供加强合作的基础。去年,新加坡不仅是越南的第五大贸易伙伴,也是当地五大投资国之一,累 计投资额高达169亿美元。
  阮明哲昨天也分别同李总理、国务资政吴作栋和内阁资政李光耀会晤,就如何进一步促进两国横跨经贸、投资 、教育及人力资源发展等广泛课题进行交流。

Women workers and their sad love affairs
=================================================

VietNamNet Bridge Alone, far from home, living a poor life, women workers easily fall into love affairs. Far too often end these end tragically, reports VietNamNet in the third article in of its series on life in some of Vietnams industrial zones (IZ).


The owner of some boarding houses near an industrial zone in Binh Duong province says that worker couples often share rooms saying they are husband and wife.

Sharing a room

The phenomenon of unmarried couples sharing rooms has become common among workers in industrial and export processing zones (IZ) in the greater HCM City area. Its an unavoidable fact when young people live far from home, starved for affection and in poor living conditions.



The owner of some boarding houses near an industrial zone in Binh Duong province says that worker couples often share rooms saying they are husband and wife. Whenever they say goodbye to each other or quarrel, however, the room owners or their neighbours know that they are not married, but living together on a trial basis.



Many sad stories have resulted from such love affairs.

P and K were workers at the Amata Industrial Zone in Dong Nai province. After they knew each other for a short time, they shared a room. When K became pregnant several months later, P disappeared. Painfully betrayed, K committed suicide in the hired room.



Many female workers have abortions; thats bad enough, but even worse, there have been cases when workers have abandoned their newborn babies.



One day about a year ago, the people around the Viet Huong Industrial Zone were shocked when a worker who packed her baby in a black plastic bag and left it in a dustbin. Luckily, a boarding house owner discovered and adopted the baby.



Recently, a worker in an industrial zone in Binh Duong delivered a child in a grassy plot near her room and left the baby there. Again, a boarding house owner found out the baby but, after a night in the open air, the baby died of exposure.



Lonely children

At 8.30pm, three kids were still at a private kindergarten in Binh Duong province. From time to time they cast anxious looks at the door, waiting for their mothers.



Binh, the kindergartens owner, said these children always look very sad because they know they lack one of their parents.



In Binhs kindergarten, there is a little girl named Trang. Her father is a worker at the Binh Duong 2 industrial zone. Trangs parents divorced when Trang was less than one year old. Her mother took the baby to Hue to sell to another woman. Luckily, Trangs maternal grandmother discovered the affair and asked her dad to come to Hue to redeem her. Since then, Trang has lived with her father in Binh Duong.



Sometimes Trang asks the kindergartens owner: Are you afraid of ghosts? If you fear ghosts, please come sleep with me. I am really afraid when I sleep alone.



Ha, Binhs neighbor, said that last year she took care of five or six babies whose mothers work at nearby industrial zones. Most of them are illegitimate. When the fathers leave, the mothers must bring up the children alone.



At last at 9.30 pm, the last baby at Binhs kindergarten was picked up.



A rare love story

At 4.30 pm, Duat is waiting in his wheelchair at the gate of the Year 2000 Co. in the Linh Trung 1 Export Processing Zone, watching for his wife. Duats wife, Thu, hurries toward him on her bicycle, not wanting to keep her husband waiting.



Some workers helped lift Duat onto Thus bike. Every day, Thu takes her husband from their hired room to their factories.



Duat is the only child in his family who was affected by his fathers exposure to Agent Orange during the war. Duat works in the Linh Trung 1 Export Processing Zone while Thu is a worker in the Binh Duong Industrial Zone, three kilometers away.



Duat was losing his faith in life until he met Thu. He cant walk, but every night he asked his friend to carry him to Thus inn just to see her face. After a period of time, Thu became Duats girlfriend.



When they decided to get married, Duats parents doubted that Thu could love an AO victim like their son. They advised him to not get married but live alone because nobody wants to marry a disabled man.



By 5.30 pm, after a hard day of work, the small room of the newly-married couple near the Binh Duong IZ was full of laughter. They had some distinguished guests - Thus parents and her nephew.



Thu hadnt yet told Duat that she had lost her job because her company didnt have new orders and was reducing its workforce.

新明日报 : 如切积极扫黄 越南艳女转战乌节
=============================================

如切扫黄雷厉风行,越南艳女转战乌节路。

自如切区积极扫黄后,短短3年内,这一带的按摩院从2005年的30间,关闭到现在只剩4间,酒廊也从原本 的46间,减少到现在的31间。

3年来的扫黄行动也大幅度打击流莺站街的情况,眼看如切已无生意可做,大批的越南艳女,于是把战场转换 到乌节路豪杰大厦一带。

记者昨晚走访豪杰大厦时,发现大厦门外站着多达20多名越南艳女,把拉客的对象锁定在洋汉 身上。

一名在豪杰大厦经营服装生意的业者表示,4年前,大厦很少出现流莺站街的情况,偶尔只见五六名艳女站在灯光 较暗的街边拉客。

不过,随着如切在3年前积极扫黄后,这些越南女郎就转移阵地,在豪杰大厦外站街。她们过后发现,在这里站 街时,都没遇过突击检查,所以拉客的情况日益严重。

据观察,昨天晚上10时30分,附近的大型百货公司纷纷打烊后,穿着性感、酥胸半露的艳女就公然的站在乌节 路的街上,向到酒廊狂欢的老外大抛媚眼。

2) When I have completed 50 songs, phase 1 trial will officially end and phase 2 trial will commence. This will be when the forum is officially introduced to the public domain. I intend to have this ready by somewhere next week so please flood me with your feedback and dedications.

3) In Phase 2, access will be by membership only. This basically means that only members will have access to the forum. Membership will be FREE of course - it's just that you need to sign up in order to be able to view the songs. This is done just to regulate the forum in order to ensure that it is not abused.

I appeal to everyone to actively contribute so that others can benefit too.

Another article talking about female workers in Industrial zone.... :(


The fear of IZ workers
======================================

VietNamNet Bridge Workers in industrial zones accept long overtime hours because they fear losing their jobs or having their salary cut.


VietNamNet talked with Nguyen Thi Dan from the HCM City Department of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs and Do Doan Kim from the Industrial Zone (IZ) Management Board of Dong Nai province about the life of IZ workers.



VietNamNet: Most companies in industrial zones, especially footwear, food and seafood processing and garment firms, ask workers to work overtime every day. What do you think about this fact?



Nguyen Thi Dan: Under the Labour Code, companies are not allowed to ask workers to work overtime over 200 hours per year and 300 hours per year for some areas like seafood processing, footwear and garment.



Companies that ask their employees to work overtime 80-100 hours per month like VietNamNet reported have violated the law.



Do Doan Kim: Most of companies, particularly footwear and garment firms, in Dong Nais industrial zone break the rules on overtime working. However, almost workers want to earn extra income. They think that working overtime can help them get a free dinner while they get some more money. If they leave their factories early, they dont know what to do in their hired rooms.



Many workers dont want to work overtime but they have to because they are afraid of losing their jobs, their salary being deducted, etc. What do you think?



Kim: This is the fact. But when labour inspectors come, employers often explain that they have reached agreements with their workers, not forcing workers to do overtime.



Anyways, employers are wrong if the overtime hours of their workers exceed the regulations.



Dan: Workers are unable to protect themselves because they dont have knowledge about laws. Sometimes they are afraid to tell the truth because they fear losing job.



The most important thing is workers dare to speak the truth and report violations of their employers. They should learn about the current law on labour.



Is there any measure to punish companies that intentionally break the labour law, arguing that they have reached agreements with workers?


Kim: We often inspect enterprises but when we asked workers, they often kept silent while the trade unions dont have timely assistance.



Dan: Workers need to bravely report the situation. We are willing to combine with trade unions at all levels and the management boards of IZs to protect workers interests. Labour inspectors will inspect and fine violators.



Where do workers report violations of their employers?



Kim: If they face any difficulty, they can see the management board of IZs, grassroots trade unions or the local Department of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs to ask for assistance.



If we detect violations, we will deal with them quickly. If workers dare to denounce the wrongdoings of employers, competent agencies will investigate.



Dan: Trade unions are the representative for workers. The grassroots trade unions should tell new workers about the labour law. Competent agencies are ready to help workers.



There is a fact that many companies fire female workers of over 35 years old. What do you comment about it?



Kim: The life of female workers of over 35 years old is very hard. Many of them entered IZs at the age of 18. When they are 35 and their health starts reducing, employers seek to dodge the rules to not sign labour contracts with them.



Dan: Garment and footwear enterprises dont recruit workers of over 35 years old because they were squeezed out when they were 18-20. Their youth were days of working overtime from the early morning until night at enterprises.



They dont have time for love and marriage so part of female workers at the age of 35-40 have to live alone.



In you advice, what female workers at this age have to do to protect their interest?



Kim: Enterprises said that workers have to work overtime to earn high income. I questioned why you dont raise salary but offer them low salary and ask them to work overtime? The management boards of industrial zones will take measures to prevent employers from dodging the labour law and fire elderly workers.



Dan: Government agencies cant follow enterprises 24/24. Whenever we leave their factories, they will do what they want. Only workers and the grassroots trade unions know about their violations and they need to raise their voice immediately so labour inspectors can help them.

Fish massage: Banned in US but expanding in Vietnam
================================================== ==

VietNamNet Bridge Fish massage has been banned in 15 states in the US in Vietnam its uncontrolled and increasingly popular.

This service has been in Vietnam for only a year but in that time it has grown massively. Originally there was just one spa in Hanoi (Sakura Spa in Doi Nhan street), now dozens of spas across Vietnam boast their own service.



Customers are queuing up to have skin nibbled by doctor fish in the belief that substances in the fishes mouths can cure skin diseases.



In addition the fish are believed to promote good circulation.



Recently, a restaurant and hotel service company on Trang Hung Dao street, HCM City imported 5000 doctor fishes from South Korea. A seafood corporation has opened the most modern fish massage centre in Can Tho city.



Trung, from the Sakura Spa in Hanoi, said that one year ago, when fish massage was available only at his spa, many people flew from HCM City to Hanoi specifically to enjoy the service.



The price is viewed as quite expensive at between $15 and $35 a session - six times more than ordinary massage services.



However, while the service is a big favourite in Vietnam, 15 states in the US have banned fish massage labeling it unhygienic and arguing fish can transmit diseases to human.



Nguyen Viet Cuong, chief health inspector of Hanoi confirms that Vietnam has no regulations regarding fish massage.



Faked doctor fish?

Doctor fish are believed to have originated from Turkey and are also known as Garra Rufa. This fish became famous after an article claimed their mouths carried substances capable of curing skin diseases. However, Garra Rufa are rare so the Turkish government has banned its commercial use.



In China, massage centres have turned instead to anabas fish, however they are not regarded as having the same medicinal properties.



In Vietnam, spa owners tend to say they imported the fish from Turkey, BBC reporters recently highlighted that this was both highly costly and most likely improbable.



Fish can transmit diseases to human?

According to spa advertisements, fish massage is good for your health because fish nibbling dead cells stimulates nerves and assists blood circulation.



A reporter from Science and Life newspaper recently tried the service in Hanoi and described the service as follows.



Before seeing the doctor fish, customers were asked to soak their feet in cinnamon water. Then they are invited to put their feet in the fish tank which is always at 25 35C.



The fish immediately swim away but started to return within a minute to feed a feeling described as somewhere between pleasure and being vigorously tickled.



According to spas, full body fish massage is only favoured by men. Women prefer to submerge just feet and hands.



While spas advertise fish massage as a disease treatment method, American doctor Dennis Arnold, the founder of the International Foot Care Association, said that such a strange skincare method was new to him and he doubted its effectiveness.



Doctor Dao Ba Vy, former chairman of the Physical Therapy Ward of Army Hospital 354 said that fish nibbling feet can only make customers relax, not help treat diseases as advertised.

Newspaper expos focuses attention on people behind child beggar bands
================================================== ============================

VietNamNet Bridge - Most every visitor to the Third World has become used to seeing child beggars. At first encounter, its a shock, but in time the urchins seem to become just another unsolvable social problem, hardly more visible to the expatriates than to the local folk.



But is the problem beyond solution? Thats what Vietnamese are asking themselves since Tuoi Tre began publishing a series on the business of herding child beggars on 18 October.



Tuoi Tre reported brutal facts about the child beggar business



In that issue, the popular HCMC newpaper printed photos of a child beggar herding gang working a crowd of young people who were queued for theatre tickets. Besides some kids asking for money under the guidance of adult herders, babies of 2-3 years old were made to lie naked on the sidewalk, next to a collections box.



Sometimes, an older child was sent to hit these babies so theyd cry to attract the compassion of passers-by. The herders included two women and some young men who kept a sharp eye on these kids.



On 21 October, Tuoi Tre explained the structure of the business, how the small children are herded by adults and older children. A ward chairman explained that in his experience, HCMC only cracks down on the beggar squadrons on the eve of big holidays. More typically, there is no city-wide coordination, he said, so if the beggars are swept from one precinct, they just relocate to another.



Theres no law against forcing people to beg



In its 23 October issue, Tuoi Tre explained why the police in HCM Citys southside District 8 concluded they couldnt slap a criminal charge on Minh and Ngoc, a husband and wife team who have deployed a band of child beggars on downtown sidewalks. The band of children, eleven in all, none more than 10 years old, were not homeless runaways, as in Dickens Oliver Twist. They had been consigned to Minh and Ngoc by their parents in far-off Thanh Hoa province.



Mistreatment of a person is a criminal offense, reasoned the police. However, the District 8 Peoples Procuracy didnt back them up, and in the end, only administrative remedies, i.e., fines, could be levied.



In the opinion of Police Lt. Colonel Pham Van Thao, it was clear that the children were being beaten and forced to beg. He noted especially the condition of Le Thi Trang. Not only had she been beaten, but also the girls fingers had been bent backward to the point that she could no longer close them. However, proving the circumstances of the abuse turned out to be complicated. According to the testimony of people in the area, Trangs parents had voluntarily consigned the girl to Minh and Ngoc. So had the parents of the other children in the band. All had agreed that Minh and Ngoc should take them to HCM City and told them to educate the children, and if they misbehave, to thrash them. In return, Minh and Ngoc had given the parents money or furniture.



The childrens bruises had healed; there was no longer evidence that Minh and Ngoc had beaten the children, no way to prove the childrens claim that their guardians hit them with steel rods and electric cords in short, insufficient evidence to prosecute the couple under Article 110 of the criminal code. In the end, all the testimony and other evidence pointed to Oanh, the couples daughter, as the assailant. Oanh, not yet 16, is not old enough to bear criminal responsibility.



The children were turned over to citys Youth Vocational Education Center, where its deputy director, a Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare official, told Tuoi Tre that ten of the children had been sent back to their families in Thanh Hoa province far to the north. Only Trang remained; she had been kept in the infirmary for treatment of her damaged hands. It wasnt clear what would happen to her next. Weve telephoned her home over and over. No one answers said the MoLISA official.

LTC Thao, the police officer, says that it wont be possible to prosecute people who run child beggar bands as criminals until the law is amended. We cant bring charges just on some officials say-so or because public opinion thinks we should, he explained. Right now the criminal code defines mistreatment as cruelty to a dependent. It isnt clear that forcing a child, an old person or a handicapped person to beg is mistreatment.



Weve urged the authorities in Thanh Hoa to deal appropriately with the parents who turned their children over to Minh and Ngoc, he continued. Probably thats not enough to deter them. We really need a framework in criminal law to deal with situations like this.



DoLISA wants authority to hold abused children in rescue centres



On October 20, prompted by the Tuoi Tre reports, the HCM City Department of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs (DoLISA) met with officials of some districts to discuss the child beggar situation.



Asked why HCM City cant solve the problem of people who organize gangs of child beggars, a DoLISA official, Mai Thi Hoa, could only say We tell the people to not give money to beggars. As long as they give money to beggars, those who herd them will continue abusing kids. The fact is, there are parents who lend their children to work as beggars. As soon as the children are brought to Social Support Centres, their parents sign them out and continue lending the kids.



We dont have the right to keep the kids at the centres, Hoa continued, unless their parents are in jail. Its assumed that the parents are best able to protect their children. Thats a gap in the law that bad people can exploit.



Ive questioned why the law has to surrender to these bad people? We (DoLISA) have asked the City Peoples Committee to let us hold child beggars at the centres for a longer period to educate them about law and enrich their life experience.



Hoa says that the districts of HCM City do not cooperate with each other to deal with this matter. And, though districts and communes have been instructed to set up hot lines to receive information about child beggars, we have not punished any beggar herding case, so they do not fear us.



Tuoi Tre says that it has received several hundreds of letters since it began reporting on the business of herding child beggars. The dominant opinion, it reports, is that the authorities could do something about this social evil if they want to.



On 24 October, the newspaper reported that the Ho Chi Minh City Peoples Committee (CPC) has instructed the municipal police to investigate and prosecute anyone who herds, mistreats, and forces children or old people to beg in order to profit. The CPC further assigned DoLISA and the peoples committees of each district to clarify the situation of the exploited children as shown in the newspaper. Last, the CPC repeated standing instructions to district authorities to resolutely deal with wandering beggars and persons living in public spaces.

If you lie down with dogs yoll get up with fleas

Đừng quấy hủ mắm.
Let sleeping dogs lie

Tre gi kh uốn.
You cannot teach an old *** new tricks

Tai vch mạch rừng.
Walls have ears

Ngn dị hnh nan.
Easier said than done

Tham thực cực thn.
He that eats till he is sick must fast till he is well

Hấp tấp hay vấp phải dy
Hasty climbers have suđen falls

Cha no con nấy;
Con nh tng khng giống lng cũng giống cnh;
Hổ phụ sinh hổ tử.
Like father, like son
