British Ambassador to Vietnam Iain Frew and officers of the Embassy of Canada in Vietnam have engaged themselves in some Vietnamese traditions to share the joys of local people on the occasion of the Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.

British Ambassador to Vietnam Iain Frew joined hands to make banh chung, a Vietnamese traditional cake made from glutinous rice, mung beans and pork, while British Consul General to Ho Chi Minh City Emily Hamblin and officers of the British Embassy in Vietnam gathered to take a stroll along the calligraphy street to immerse themselves in the Tet atmosphere.

According to Ambassador Iain Frew, he could feel the excitement and warm feelings during his first Tet holiday in Vietnam.

“This is time for family. And for my Tet, I will go back to the UK to see my family after nearly six months,” Frew shared.

British Consul General to Ho Chi Minh City Emily Hamblin said that she is excited that her family will come to the southern city for the first time this year.

“Tet is also a time to reflect and to look to the future. And I am sure that the Year of the Cat will continue to see the UK-Vietnam relationship flourish with stronger ties between our peoples, our businesses, and our governments,” she stated.

The British diplomats also wished the Vietnamese people a year full of peace, love, success, happiness, and good fortune.

The Facebook fanpage of the Embassy of Canada in Vietnam also posted photos of officers wrapping banh chung with Vietnamese friends for the first time.
