Out to Lunch, on Flickr. Benches donated by returning overseas Vietnamese. Pagoda in Vung Tau, Vietnam. Someone told me that the text on the
bench of the left reads: "doing good is the greatest source of happiness". Vung Tau, August 2012. Fuji X-100.

Your friend is right, all other benches wrote the donators' names...in 'traditional Chinese', meaning they are oversea Chinese Vietnamese...


Starlight Night Club with a Chinese sign; '星光夜總會'...strangely, the Chinese name is the same w the English name...most of the time it'll be different
