The Bluesman\’s Killing Floor

November 1, 2005

Enjoying the little things

Filed under: My Word... — bbluesman @ 1:06 pm

One of the things I love about where I live-not only do I get killer Chinese food (in copious amounts) on a daily basis, I get to eat fantastic Vietnamese food most days for lunch. Great food only costing about US$1.60 a dish. That’s even pretty good by local standards.

There are many Vietnamese women marrying Taiwanese men, in order to provide financial aid to their families. The Taiwanese men often, socially challenged(difficult to get  long with), polio vicitms, or old. They go to Vietnam and pick out a bride in real time and then pay money to the broker. The broker in turn pays a cut (dowry) to family of bride, and pockets a commission.

Often, the Vietnamese women will start a “food stand” to help earn money for their new family. The lady that owns the food stand that I go to, is particularly industrious and likes a good joke. She’s one heck of a cook. At any given time, their will be a group of 3-4 other Vietnamese brides there eating and socializing. This number doesn’t include the other 2 Vietnamese helpers the “boss lady” has there.
