3 colofon living Double Dutch is a magazine of the Dutch Business Association Vietnam. It is published 3 times a year. Editors Violette Brand Barbara Piper Hilde Hoogwaerts Renske ten Bosch Design Margriet Kruse Translation Barbara Piper Marleen Sprik Advertisements Deadline next issue: January 15th 2009 Subscription for non members 20 USD per year DBAV New members can contact Mireille Kodden at or Nederlandse Vereniging Marjo Vaessen Netherlands Alumni Network Vietnam Consulate General of the Netherlands Postal address: C/o Consulate General of the Netherlands Saigon Tower 29 Le Duan Boulevard, District 1 Ho Chi Minh City Summer came and went The schools have started again and we are back in business with a new Double Dutch team of editors! Let us introduce ourselves to you: Violette Brand, Renske ten Bosch, Barbara Piper, Margriet Kruse and Hilde Hoogwaerts. We all have different backgrounds and bring different ideas and experiences into the team; we hope to answer to the broad range of interests of all our readers. The editorial has also changed and moved to the English part of the Double Dutch. For this edition, we brainstormed about possible subjects on the Hospitality Industry. In a way, we thought, all of us are semi-professionals in this field. Once in a while we all run a bed and breakfast and are a tour-guide to all visitors that come to stay with us for a couple of days to, sometimes, even more than a month. Being hospitable means being open, welcoming, friendly, warm, generous and kind, just to name a few. People come and go, are moving in or moving out and we try to fit in into our new environment as quickly as possible. For some of us this is the first time being an expat far away from home, for others this is the last posting before retirement. It does not matter if you are just a beginner or a seasoned expat; it is always good to spend some time together. Maybe, because there is quite a gap between the local community and the expats here, foreigners need each other more, especially the partners of the working group. In addition, our culture, the Dutch school, humour and typical Dutch parties brings us all together. Check out the agenda as all of these typical Dutch events will bring the Cloggies together in the next few weeks. Last but not least, we would like to wish Andre and Bernie Haspels, the leaving Dutch ambassador and his wife, all the best with their new posting in The Hague, The Netherlands. They have always been very supportive of our work for the Double Dutch. A warm welcome to the new consul and his wife in Saigon, Mr and Mrs Jos en Heleen Schellaars. We hope you will have a good experience while being in Vietnam. Barbara, Renske, Violette & Hilde

6 working new company in town ibus development vietnam w Many people living in Vietnam know of the Life Resorts and have visited them. Their beautiful locations and the Spa and Wellness they offer. But did you know what and who brought the Life Resorts to Vietnam? Wouter Roelofs, currently working for Life Resorts as the development manager for the new hotels and resorts is in the process of setting up IBUS Development Vietnam (IDV). He talks to us about the history and future in Vietnam. The IBUS Company is a Dutch company and develops and invests in office, retail, residential and hotel properties in Europe and the United States and has done so for over 15 years. Life Resorts Management Company has always been a small part of the business, but a good learning experience of the Vietnamese market and how things work. So then what brought IBUS to Vietnam in the first place? It was by chance that a market was found here for IBUS. This was in The CEO at the time made a holiday trip with his wife and met a local developer who was looking for an investor in his hotels. Soon after that Life Resorts Management Company was born and plans were made to set up a hotel chain in the 4 star international category. Both hotels Quy Nhon and Hoi An have had many reviews and won some prizes for best resorts in Vietnam and best Spa and Wellness. It has been quiet for a while, but the new resorts are under construction and on their way. And why a new company? For two main reasons: The first reason is that with the experience built with Life Resorts over the past years and the research done on Vietnam, we feel confident that we better understand the market. And we see great potential in the local real estate market. This then made IBUS decide about a year ago to set up a professional development company alongside the existing hotel management company. The new company will develop real estate broader than hotels and resort which asks for different specialisation and profession than managing hotels. Is there already an office in HCMC? At the moment we are in the process of applying for the Business License and we think we will have finalized this early November this year. What exactly are you going to do/your challenges in the coming years? We will develop real estate throughout Vietnam with a team of Project Managers, local experts and joint venture partners. What do you enjoy most about your work? It is a mix. On the one hand my work is about gaining the necessary local knowledge, doing your research and teaming up with experts. At the same time I need to go through a process of creative thinking and develop a feasible Bringing Resorts and Wellness to Vietnam! concept, which then has to be turned into a reality. It s a whole chain of activities that need to be set up and thought through with the right people. Furthermore Vietnam is a developing country and I believe that with our investments and real estate we will add some value to the market and to the Vietnamese economy.

7 working working working my company freebizznet Freebizznet is a business to business networking company with offices in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Kampen, The Netherlands. The company is focused on cross border business matching needs for Small and Medium Enterprises. Freebizznet started in December 2006, when its two Dutch founders realized there was a real market need to support SME companies in a fast changing global landscape. As we all know globalization and internet based business models have created tremendous opportunities and new efficiencies in international cooperation, but also its challenges: how can you get on that global bandwagon as a small company without knowing anything about the business environment, culture or even language in a completely new environment and lacking the time to find out? Flying in and out is not the answer and is not only expensive but many times does not lead to good results. Based on this observation, two founders Michael Huyng, a Vietnamese born Dutchman with long time business networking experience between The Netherlands and Vietnam and Harrie Flinsenberg, a Dutch Internet and New Media entrepreneur with long time international experience in high tech service companies, decided to introduce a new concept based on two key ingredients for success: the reach and communication power of the Internet coupled with real incountry expertise and networking by enthusiastic local people. Freebizznet today is based on these two ingredients: a new rich media Internet Platform, www. and www. in Vietnamese that support the needs of business promotion and business matching. A new in-country market support team in HCMC provides effectively the human touch and feel and the necessary local intelligence to support customers in their new venture. Services Core of the Freebizznet business Internet platform is delivery of e- business to business services as media rich company publishing and listing services in a global B2B Directory, smart local search, advertising and e-matching. We offer members a cost effective way to publish and self-manage their company listing and multimedia presentations where they can determine themselves WHAT, WHERE and WHEN they want to communicate, without boundaries! Companies can choose to publish just a company overview page with contact information, or add extra product information, power point presentations, flyers or video clips. They will become part of the Freebizznet business club and will be able to kick start their business network. Additionally we offer consulting services that will support enterprises in dealing with the typical aspects of the local business culture. Through our native language speaking consultants and network partners, we deliver services such as: find partners in line with your matching profile, create a list of candidate companies, pre-qualify candidate companies, meeting support, deal making support and after contract support Quick facts 5000 listings Headquarters: IJsselkade AB Kampen The Netherlands +31 (0) Vietnam Office: B59 To Ky Street Quarter 3 Dong Hung Thuan Ward District 12 Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam +84 (08) What makes us so unique! In two words: people and platform. Freebizznet uniquely lets you find the right clients and business partners supported by local know how!

8 my company hans kemp working w Art of Asia Barbara Piper The first time I met Hans was in an informal setting at the Dragons Nest in An Phu. After an exchange on his earlier work, I asked him what he was up to at the moment. A series of books on Asia, he said, showing the riches and diversity of Asia by choosing one specific subject and illuminating that subject through a substantial mix of beautiful photographs. I am intrigued. Later Hans tells me that he is not only a photographer but has expanded his work to publishing his own and others photographs. In this new series Hans also uses images of fellow photographers. It is called Asia Unique and the first three books are planned for October this year. One of the books is on doors, another on hands and the third on all the different ways in which fish is caught in Asia. The titles of the books are: Doors, Hands and Catch. Hans plans to distribute the books here in Vietnam (production is in Hong Kong and China) and to possibly have the book launch and an exhibition coincide. When this will be is unsure but you can check his web log: I ask him; you have years of experience in Vietnam and elsewhere in Asia. After all these years, what still captures and moves you? What do you still enjoy taking pictures of most? What images are leaving the streets and what are they being replaced with? Hans explains that once you have been in a place for a longer period of time your perception of it changes. In the beginning everything is new and maybe even strange. That motivates me as a photographer. Images are everywhere around you and especially here in Asia where much of life is lived on the streets. That tension, that vibe, makes me alert which is what you need to take good photographs. In the beginning that tension is enough. But after a while you get used to what you see around you. You still look but you don t see it anymore. What you really need is an ardent eye, an eye for possibilities for what could be. Hence the title of one of my books: Ardent Eye. Hans continues: My photography has changed over the years. In the beginning I would travel with no real plan or goal. And everywhere I was, often for the first time, I took photographs of the images I saw. Of the streets, of life that was taking place before me. The result was that I made a lot of post cards (of Vietnam), images alone. The combination of getting used to my surroundings on the one hand and the changing images in the streets of Vietnam and Asia on the other, have, for me, resulted in more focused photography. I walk the street with a goal and in spite of modernization; the strong traditions, rituals and festivals still exist and are alive in Asia today. I do a lot of research and I surf on the web and then I find things that make me think: yes, this is worth while; this is a story worth telling. And an image worth taking. And then I m off; to Japan, India, China anywhere in Asia. The result of all these years experience is that my photography is different; I now tell stories with my (and others ) images. To be able to work on your own projects and have all the freedom to do so is an exceptionally great gift. 8 DOUBLE DUTCH

9 working working working my company jo demar - strategy and marketing consultant Dutch business woman in town Renske ten Bosch In Ho Chi Minh City, the number of Dutch women who are either starting or continuing their own business or who are here for their employer from their home country is increasing. Double Dutch wants to get better acquainted with them. For this edition we interviewed Marjo Vaessen, independent strategy and marketing consultant. Who are you? Originally, I am a marketing professional. I studied business administration at the university of Groningen, The Netherlands. Together with Jan Willem, I have 3 children (Jesse, Daan en Luca). We have lived in Vietnam since June What kind of company do you have and since when? I am an independent strategy and marketing consultant and lead marketing projects or work as an interim professional. I have set up my business - Jo Demar - in Vietnam in December Who are your customers? At the moment I have two assignments. For Dutch Lady Vietnam, I am running a project, helping them introduce a new concept for which they will have to invest in the factory in Binh Duong. As project leader I work together with marketing, sales-, finance- and operations professionals. For Friesland Foods Malaysia, I am setting up a marketing academy for the marketing teams of all operating companies in Asia. I am doing this together with a company in London that specializes in workshops. They are responsible for the context of the workshops and I am developing the format and subjects. Did you have your own company before you came to Vietnam? No, I started my own company here in Vietnam. Before this, I lived in The Netherlands and worked as a marketing manager within companies. Are you enjoying working independently in Vietnam? Yes, definitely. Working in a project team solely with Vietnamese people is a big challenge. Besides that I think consumer research enriches the understanding of the country and its people. For the assignment in Malaysia I mostly work from home. However, for Dutch Lady Vietnam, I need to be at the head office regularly. This combination works well for me. How do you find a good work-life balance? At home things are working out very well. Our nanny (after her two predecessors) is great with our children. What makes things easier is that two of our children go to school every day. During exceptionally busy weeks, it is difficult to be on top of all the news within our community and there is less time sometimes for my friendships with deadlines to meet. Luckily, one tennis lesson and teacher Jason brings you up-to-date again! What is your most positive experience? I don t have any special anecdotes but one of the most positive experiences I had was when I was doing home-visits with consumers. In one particular case, I was working with a translator who translates the Vietnamese in staccato English. It is really very nice to hear what the Vietnamese people are talking about. Would you recommend other women here to start up their own business? Yes, absolutely. Working in Vietnam, and in my case together with the Vietnamese people, is an enriching experience. Furthermore, my experience is that doing something for yourself (paid or unpaid) is definitely a relief for an expat partner. Do you have suggestions for them? Before I started, I spoke to many international entrepreneurs. This helps to build a network and many people are willing to give useful suggestions and help.

The chairman of VNO-NCW presented the price for the large embassy to the Dutch ambassador in Hanoi, whereas the mission in Lima received the award in the group of smaller embassies. The award was created in 1983 in order to have more attention for the economic related activities of Dutch embassies and to express the appreciation of these activities. The award is granted based on a poll amongst Dutch entrepreneurs. As you will understand we are proud to be the winner and will do our utmost to win the price again in Vietnam officials visit the Netherlands When publishing this Double Dutch issue 2 delegations headed by Mr Pham Gia Khiem (Vice PM and Minister of Foreign Affairs) and Minister Cao Duc Phat (Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development) have visited the Netherlands. Improving and broadening the relationship is the main aim. Possible new areas to cooperate will be exploited, some business issues will be addressed and Dutch expertise regarding water management will be promoted. I will tell you more about the outcome of these visits in the next Double Dutch issue. Dutch visitors to Vietnam In the coming months the following business delegations, funded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, will visit Vietnam. 25 and 26 November: Dutch companies from the poultry industry will visit Thailand and Vietnam. Participating in the Hanoi Vietstock is the main element of their program in Vietnam. 26, 27 and 28 of November: Dutch furniture companies will visit Japan and Vietnam (HCMC).

Promising sectors in Vietnam The economic mission of Vietnam informed The Netherlands about 5 sectors we think are promising for the Dutch industry. Retail sector (opening up in 2009), Horticulture, Waste Water Treatment and Port development. The available sector descriptions are on our website ( vn) and will be incorporated in the EVD website. Do you have ideas about sectors that could be very promising for Dutch companies? Any suggestions will be gratefully received. Interesting publications Each year the EU embassies and the delegation of the European Commission in Vietnam publishes a Green Book aiming to provide the private sector as well as European institutions and governments with the analysis of the recent performance of Vietnam as well as an overview of the development in certain sectors of the Vietnamese economy. Next to short factual descriptions of those sectors relevant for EU companies we tried to include the specific challenges of the different sectors in Vietnam ( The Ministry of Foreign Affairs recently published a magazine on the Vietnam-Netherlands friendship relationship and multi-sectoral cooperation. The publication can be requested at the Embassy in Hanoi and the Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City.

11 working working working my company Vietnam journey Cycling through Vietnam Violette Brand A lot of tourists visit the Mekong Delta and a question most expats ask when you tell them you went as well, is: Cycling in the Mekong? I thought cycling in An Phu was already an experience! Time for me to have an interview with Laurens van Kol who started the travel agency Vietnam Journey back in 1995 with his wife My. Can you tell us some more about Vietnam Journey? Vietnam Journey B.V. is a travel company specialising in travel to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Although we live in a time of call centres and international brands and marketing, Vietnam Journey tailors all its tours to individual needs and we know every client by name. In 1995 you gave up your job to start with Vietnam Journey. What gave you the inspiration to choose for tourism in Vietnam? It was a coincidence. I d enjoyed my travels through the country in 1993 and But only after a company asked me to organise their tours, I got the idea of opening a travel agency. Vietnam Journey is known for its bicycle tours in the Mekong Delta. That sounds like a real Dutch way of exploring the country? Do tourists from other countries like to ride the bicycle as well? In fact we do all sorts of tours, lots of family holidays, study tours for business people, trips with fourwheeldrives in the mountains, so not just cycling. For sure we have also welcomed cycling enthusiasts from various European countries, the US and Australia, as well as expats who live in countries like Singapore, Hong Kong and China. How did the Vietnamese people react when you started with the bicycle tours? One of our first clients said she felt like a giant alien. This was partly because we use sophisticated bicycles that the Vietnamese had never seen before. These days I hear many people grumble about how fast Vietnam is changing but the good thing is that the response of the Vietnamese people hasn t changed a thing. They still wave and shout and have at least as much fun watching us! What would be your personal favourite track? I d probably agree with a lot of my clients who love a narrow path right through a banana plantation. Another fascinating moment is when you re on an island in the Mekong where you re convinced you re the first foreigner ever, and suddenly stand in front of an old Catholic church! But I must add that our Delta Discovery tours mostly make you discover the Mekong Delta region, not to go from highlight to highlight. Your tourists are usually not accompanied by a guide. Is it easy to explore the local life on your own? It s surprisingly easy. I suppose anyone who lives in Vietnam quickly understands the Vietnamese are not shy at all and always enjoy welcoming you to their homes. And there are so many young people now who speak a few words of English. You and your Vietnamese partner now live in Holland and have offices both in Saigon and Hattem (near Zwolle). Did you take your partner on bicycle tours through Holland? We do enjoy a fair bit of cycling in the Veluwe and Drenthe. Did you know the Mekong Delta is as big as the Netherlands, just as flat, and with roughly an equally large population? More Vietnamese people travel to Europe and Vietnam Journey probably knows best what they are interested in. Do you offer tours for them through Holland or even Europe? We ve thought of that and perhaps do so at a later stage. Just like we enjoy showing the real Vietnam, showing the real Holland would be a challenge. With all the motorbikes in Vietnam nowadays, would you prefer a motorized bike, or still paddle a real bicycle through Vietnam? Vietnam on a motorbike can also be wonderful, particularly in the mountainous North. But of course cycling is the way to go if you want to understand the spirit of the country and the energy of the people here. Thank you Laurens! I have added to my exploring Vietnam to do s: cycling through the Mekong Delta! DOUBLE DUTCH

12 working dinner is served Sunset restaurant in Phu Quoc Lighthouse Restaurant and bicycle tours in Hoi An Since January of this year, Phu Quoc Island has a new, Dutch managed, restaurant called Quan An - Hoang Hon, which in Vietnamese means Sunset restaurant. Earlier it was known as the German Biergarten and featured many German dishes on the menu. A few of those dishes are still on the menu, like the home made sauerkraut, Wiener schnitzel and giant sausages. But ever since Louis van Eijk, his son Martijn and Ms. Uyen took over the place, you will also find Asian as well as vegetarian dishes on the menu. Louis and Martijn have worked hard and made substantial changes to the restaurant. Until now the Sunset restaurant was the only place on Phu Quoc where diners can enjoy a fantastic sunset on a clear day while having excellent food on the roof terrace. The restaurant has an accommodation for 90 customers: 50 downstairs and 40 upstairs on the roof terrace, but can upgrade up to 120 seats in total. As from the start of next high season (November), you will also be able to book a sea trip for fishing & snorkeling north and south of Phu Quoc Island, hold barbeque parties for groups on the roof terrace or simply book a table for a romantic Private Sea View Dinner. All in all, enough reason for all to visit Phu Quoc Island and enjoy a meal at Sunset restaurant. You will find them next to Sasco Blue Lagoon resort. More info on: www. phuquoc-sunset. com. Lighthouse Restaurant & Bicycle Tours is a Vietnamese - Dutch owned business on Cam Nam Island in Hoi An. From The Lighthouse Restaurant you have the best view of the old quarter of Hoi An, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, and the hustle and bustle on the Thu Bon River. It is off the beaten track and situated in a natural, quiet environment. Linh and Hans van den Broek started The Lighthouse in 2004 as a café. Soon it turned into a restaurant and it became a must see - for individual travellers and tour groups. The food on the menu is a mix between traditional Vietnamese dishes and Western baguettes and salads. Linh s famous apple cake is known around the world and expats come to get their weekly dose! Together with the breathtaking view it makes lunching and dining a great experience. Lighthouse Restaurant offers more than just wining and dining. You can enjoy cooking classes organised by Linh. The course starts by taking the guests to one of the colourful local markets where they can see and enjoy a taste of The East. Then guests take a boat from the market to The Lighthouse where the actual cooking class is given. This is followed by a delicious lunch. The group is never bigger than 10 persons. Hans organises enchanting cultural bicycle tours around Hoi An. With 25 years of travelling in Asia and 7 years of living in Vietnam, his experience gives you insight into many of the ins and outs of Amazing Vietnam. At this moment The Lighthouse organises bicycle tours for 19 tour operators. Linh and Hans are planning a new venture and would like to build a replica of a VOC ship (Dutch East India Company), which called in at Hoi An, then called Faifoo, in the 17th century. There is a lot of information exchange going on at the moment with maritime museums, wharfs (Lelystad), ship builders and others on how to start this project. The plan is to present this project in somewhere in the spring of 2009, to members of the Dutch embassy and consulate, Dutch businesses in Vietnam and the Heeren 17. They want to bring a prototype of the boat, give a 3D animation and present a business plan. Both Vietnam and the Netherlands could benefit from such a cultural exchange project. And what a great project to promote Dutch business in Vietnam!

Na de PABO aan de Hogeschool van Rotterdam, ik was inmiddels 21 jaar, besloot ik mijn horizon een beetje te verruimen en ben naar Tadzjikistan (Centraal Azië) vertrokken. Ik heb daar een jaar thuisonderwijs gegeven aan een stel Nederlandse kinderen. Na dit jaar vond ik heel gemakkelijk een baan op een Nederlandse Montessorischool in Barendrecht, waar ik eerst als invalleerkracht heb gewerkt en de afgelopen 2 jaar de middenbouw gedraaid heb (groep 3-4-5). In mijn vrije tijd vind ik het erg leuk om te zingen in een bandje, te schrijven, te lezen en te reizen. Ik ben blij dat ik dat laatste nu kan combineren met mijn werk! Ik heb er enorm naar uit gekeken om naar Vietnam te gaan en les te gaan geven! Sinds augustus ben ik het team van de Nederlandse School Saigon komen versterken. Voor aanvang van het schooljaar keek ik hier mijn ogen uit: een hoop brommers, mensen, bamboehoeden, wierook en noodles! Inmiddels ben ik aardig gesetteld en ook al hard aan het werk. Ik heb een positieve eerste indruk van de Nederlandse School, de betrokken mensen en de enthousiaste leerlingen! Stichting Nederlandse School Saigon Na de zomervakantie is de Nederlandse School Saigon met een enthousiaste nieuwe leerkracht en 40 leerlingen begonnen. Juf xíchlô Aletta staat voor de groepen 1 t/m 3 en 5 t/m 7, terwijl de leerlingen van groep 4 en 8 van juf Bianca les krijgen in de Nederlandse taal en cultuur (NTC). De cultuurlessen vinden ook komend jaar weer op vier zaterdagmiddagen plaats. Voor meer informatie kunt u er de nieuwe schoolgids op naslaan of de website bezoeken op www. Naast de veranderingen in het leerlingenbestand en de daarmee samenhangende groepsindeling, heeft er ook in het bestuur een vernieuwing plaats gevonden. Het bestuur van de Nederlandse School Saigon bestaat momenteel uit: Roy van der Knaap (voorzitter), André de Jong (penningmeester), Petra Paenmoan (secretaris), Barbara Kruimer (bestuurslid cultuur), Renske ten Bosch (bestuurslid onderwijsondersteuning) en Mariska Marsilje (algemeen bestuurslid). Terugblik aftredende bestuursleden Marga van Tiggelen, Els Kerckhaert en Christel Satter We zijn benieuwd hoe Marga, Els en Christel destijds bij het bestuur van de Nederlandse School Saigon zijn begonnen, hoe ze het hebben gevonden Marga vertelt dat op de ouderavond in augustus 2005 het zittende bestuur aftrad en zij -met de geruststelling dat je als secretaris slechts twee keer per jaar een leerlingenlijst zou hoeven uitdraaien - deze functie aanvaardde. In praktijk bleek er natuurlijk veel meer werk aan de winkel te zijn! Els had, voordat ze in augustus 2005 naar HCMC verhuisden, al bij toenmalig secretaris Dorris aangegeven zich wel nuttig te willen maken in de Nederlandse gemeenschap. Omdat zij altijd al meer met cijfers dan met letters heeft gehad, lag de bestuursfunctie van penningmeester voor de hand. Els werd dan ook op de eerste ouderavond die ze bijwoonde direct benoemd! Dit nieuwe bestuur hield zich in eerste instantie vooral bezig met organisatie van evenementen voor de Nederlandse kinderen, zoals Sinterklaas, filmavonden, paasknutsel en Koninginnedag. Van onderwijszaken hadden ze nog niet veel verstand, maar dan kwam snel verandering in. Els vertelt: In februari 2006 kregen we de melding dat de inspecteur van onderwijs, de heer Roozenburg, bij ons op bezoek zou komen. Ik weet nog dat Marga had uitgezocht dat we een zelf evaluatie instrument moesten gebruiken ter voorbereiding op dit bezoek en wij elkaar allemaal met glazige ogen aankeken. Begin mei schreef hij een pittig rapport over onze school en kon het echte werk beginnen. Het bestuur werd uitgebreid en vol overgave ging het aan de slag met schoolgids, schoolplan, nieuwe lesmethode, cultuurlessen, rapportage, leerlingvolgsysteem, contacten met andere NTC locaties en het formaliseren van de school. Alle verbeterpunten, die de inspecteur had aangegeven, werden aangepakt om onderwijs van een goede kwaliteit neer te kunnen zetten. Al doende is er binnen dit bestuur een uitgebreide kennis van het NTC onderwijs opgebouwd. Ook Christel was het niet bekend dat er zoveel 18 DOUBLE DUTCH

Christel: Ik vond het leuk om zo betrokken te zijn bij het reilen en zeilen van de school. En het was heel divers, dus heb ik me nooit verveeld en er veel van opgestoken. De ene keer lang vergaderen met het bestuur, dan weer helpen in de klas, op de NOB site dingen opzoeken, etc. En natuurlijk de samenwerking met de docenten, die ik als zeer positief heb ervaren. In april van dit jaar is de inspecteur weer langs geweest en hij was zeer onder de indruk van wat er op school was veranderd. Wellicht mogen wij in een video conferentie met de Minister van Onderwijs onze ervaringen met het inspectiebezoek toelichten en daar wordt maar één school uit onze regio voor uitverkoren. Toch iets om met z n allen trots op te zijn, aldus Els. Want natuurlijk hebben we het samen met de andere bestuursleden, ouders en docenten gedaan. Ook Marga en Christel hebben het saamhorigheidsgevoel binnen het bestuur, zo van we zetten er samen onze schouders onder als iets heel positiefs ervaren, wat ze zeker bij zal blijven. En dat het nu zo goed gaat met de Nederlandse school! Het was het dubbel en dwars waard! Els zal zich van deze functie veel blijven herinneren, bijvoorbeeld de levendige discussies in het bestuur, de Pietenspeurtocht, de kleuterlessen bij haar thuis, de 10-minutengesprekken met meester Gerrie, de sollicitatie procedures. Maar ook de cultuurlessen en de aansluitende feestjes, de toetsen en het inspectie rapport. De Nederlandse School Saigon bedankt Marga, Els en Christel nogmaals voor hun inzet en het vele werk, dat ze hebben verzet! In groep 5 gehoord. Henriëtte: Chinezen zijn heel slim, want ze hebben veel dingen uitgevonden. Waarop Jonah prompt antwoordt: Nou, maar die dingen gaan anders wel snel kapot, dus zo slim zijn ze ook weer niet! Ik zie mij nog staan die eerste dag in HCMC. Staand aan het hek bij de school besef ik mij dat ik geen yummy mummy meer ben. De moeder die strak in pak op weg naar werk even een tussenstop maakt op de crèche. Die zwaait naar de andere mama s - geen tijd voor een chatje. Ik moet mijn trein halen, op tijd cappuccino scoren en aanschuiven bij het MT. In het leven nu heb ik alle tijd. Ik ben inmiddels een slummy mummy die nog net niet in de pyjama van haar man op het schoolplein staat. Geen betaalde baan om naartoe te gaan en, eerlijk gezegd, was ik de weg kwijt. Wat doe ik hier en: wie ben ik ook alweer? Een vrolijke Australische dame op het schoolplein stapt de eerste dag op me af. Mijn verwonderde gezicht spreekt blijkbaar boekdelen want ze begint een praatje met me. Ze geeft me haar kaartje en zegt: I know where you are. At some stage you will be ready to shoot yourself. When that moment comes, give me a call and I will be there. Ik dacht niet dat ik ooit zou bellen, maar dat moment kwam snel en zij stond inderdaad binnen een half uur aan mijn deur met een fles gin en twee blikjes tonic. We zijn nog steeds dikke maten. Welkom op de voor mij ultieme become a Buddha training hier in Vietnam met mijn nieuwe onbekende en zeer full-time taken en een setje uitdagingen die specifiek bij dit leven en dit land horen. Zoals mijn moeder heel treffend schreef: ja schat, het is voor het eerst dat je echt je household management skills kan ontwikkelen. En dat werd ook wel eens tijd. Waar is die fles gin? Ik overdenk mijn maatschappelijke geconditioneerdheid om status te (willen) hebben. Mijn ego. Heel triest natuurlijk. Een betaalde baan. Hoe makkelijk was het mijn ego op te hangen aan de ambitieuze werkende business vrouw. Die sexy, vol zelfvertrouwen, stiekem oververmoeide, bellende, sms ende mama. Makkelijker dan ik ben een stayat-home-mummy. Dat klinkt zo sexy als een zak aardappelen. Ghandi zei: Be the change you want to see in the world. Ik kreeg deze tekst een jaar geleden op een spiegeltje van mijn dierbare work-life-coach in Nederland. Nu kijk ik in de spiegel en vraag me af welke verandering ik wil. De Nederlandse School Saigon zwaait uit: Sophie, Maud en Bente van Baar (leerlingen vanaf 2007) Fleur en Sophie van Olphen (leerlingen vanaf 2008) Noah Kruimer (leerling vanaf 2007) DOUBLE DUTCH

20 wonen in vietnam iving living op de valreep living l CA Saigon Saigon in the Caravelle voor het uitzicht. Warren, Ineke en dochters Lily, Lauren en Richel vertrekken naar Cairo. Hoe lang hebben jullie in Vietnam gewoond? Wij hebben 6 jaar met veel plezier in Saigon gewoond. Wat wordt de volgende bestemming? Wij zijn sinds juli in Cairo, Egypte. Wat ga je het meeste missen? Vrienden, ons huis, de Bazaar, leuke originele Australische feesten, Mui Ne strand, gezelligheid, gekke dagelijkse (Vietnamese) dingen die je blijven verbazen, onze kok. Wat is je meest positieve ervaring met de Vietnamese cultuur? Vriendelijkheid. Wat is je meest negatieve ervaring? Vergeten. Zijn je verwachtingen die je destijds had toen je naar Vietnam kwam, uitgekomen? Een jaar voordat we wisten dat we naar Saigon zouden verhuizen was ik met een gezellige groep dames op bezoek in Saigon en omgeving. Ik herinner mij dat ik bij terugkomst tegen Warren zei dat hij me niet zou hoeven te vragen of ik wel naar Vietnam zou willen verhuizen. Het leek me een fantastisch leuk land waar veel te ontdekken was, mensen vriendeliijk zijn, lekker eten, prima weer Het is wat ons gezin betreft, tot nu toe, de beste posting waar we gewoond hebben. Voor iedereen wat! Wat is je favoriete restaurant in HCMC en wat bestel je daar meestal? The Mandarin- the beef in bamboo, goed Vietnamees eten. Mekong Merchant- voor alle gezelligheid- waar je altijd wel bij iemand aan kunt schuiven- beste BBQ squid in town. Heb je nog een leuke winkeltip? Bij de Mekong Merchant is altijd wat byzonders, iets anders te vinden. Wat vind je de leukste vakantiebestemming in Vietnam. Phu Quoc- voor de ongereptheid (voor nu) Hoi An- voor elk wat wils- Mui Ne- voor al die weekendjes dat toutes Saigon aan het strand is, we gaan the Sailing Club missen! Welke souvenirs heb je nog gekocht de laatste paar weken in Vietnam en waarom? Kunst, hoewel we ons Saigonees voelen, moeten we toegeven dat je in Hanoi wat ons betreft de mooiste, apartste, uitdagendste, origineelste kunst kunt kopen... Wat is het leukste feest dat je hier hebt meegemaakt? Alle Australian Balls, Australia Days en het LoretoFest... maar ben misschien een beetje bevooroordeeld. En ook, hoewel met een dubbel gevoel, ons eigen afscheidsfeest was heel bijzonder. Tenslotte: nog enig advies voor de achterblijvers? Geniet! Familie hodder vertrekt naar cairo
