The escape of Cat Thao's family from persecution traverses the horrific jungles of Khmer Rouge Cambodia and into the crowded refugee camps of Thailand. From which, finally, the Nguyens were allowed to board a Qantas plane to a freedom they wanted desperately. But the stark, contrasting suburban landscapes of Western Sydney, Australia were not the unalloyed blessing they'd imagined.
Against the backdrop of an immigrant experience, Cat Thao tells of her coming of age in Australia, haunted by lingering trauma but buoyed by instincts of hope, reinvention and survival. In a voice both candid and striking, Cat Thao details her struggles with growing up: from her bad skin and hairy legs, to Vietnamese mysticism and kinship, and bound throughout by familial loyalty and honour.
With wit and poignancy, We Are Here explores an Australia of the 80s and 90s, and a family's tireless journey for peace through a young woman's absolute determination to find her place.

Et une nouvelle histoire va se construire autour du Duke, quand le narrateur et Alexis aperçoivent un jour de mystérieux cubes en verre dans le jardin de ce voisin milliardaire, une histoire non plus seulement fantasmée mais réelle, et inexplicable pour les deux enfants.
Alors qu’Alexis doit déménager peu après, le narrateur porte seul ce souvenir qui l’obsède. Adolescent solitaire puis adulte centré uniquement sur son travail, il retrouve Alexis et sa vie s’épanouit autour de son ami d’enfance, puis d’Erena, sa femme, et finalement du Duke dont il va devenir un des plus proches collaborateurs alors que ses interrogations sont toujours restées aussi présentes, entretenues par les multiples figures de cubes qu’il croise au cours de sa vie.
Mais n’ont-ils pas été là plus particulièrement aux moments les plus importants de son existence?
Et sa destinée n’est-elle pas à reconsidérer du point de vue de ces orientations sous-jacentes, et qui l’auraient guidé jusqu’ici ?
Pauline Nguyen tells the honest, difficult story of her family, following the journey of her parents from their homeland in Vietnam on their escape to Thailand as refugees, and then on to their eventual resettlement in Australia. They moved to Sydney's most vibrant and notorious Vietnamese enclave where Pauline and her brother Luke grew up. Pauline, Luke and Pauline's husband Mark Jensen now run Red Lantern, an acclaimed, modern Vietnamese restaurant in Sydney's popular inner-city area of Surry Hills.
At the heart of this story is a love of food. It helped to placate homesickness, became central to the family's early success in Australia and was sometimes the only language the family could use to communicate with each other. In the end, it was this shared passion for food that reconciled the family and help create Red Lantern's success.
<p>From main streets to back alleys, Luke shares his insider knowledge, venturing out with acclaimed photographer Alan Benson at dawn and late into the night to meet roaming street vendors and stallholders. Vibrant local personalities, colourful photographs and stories about the most unique dishes – <i>Street Food Asia</i> brings one of the world’s richest food traditions to life.</p>
<p><b>About the author</b>:Luke Nguyen is a renowned Vietnamese-Australian chef, best known for his television series <i>Luke Nguyen’s Vietnam</i>, <i>Luke Nguyen’s Greater Mekong</i> and more recently <i>Luke Nguyen’s France</i>. Born in a Thai refugee camp after his parents escaped their homeland in Vietnam, Luke’s family made their way to Australia where Luke was raised in Cabramatta. His parents opened and ran a Vietnamese restaurant called Pho Cay Du and it was this familial passion for food that first ignited Luke’s interest in Vietnamese cooking. After learning the basics from his parents, Luke trained with a number of respected chefs before opening The Red Lantern restaurant. Since then, The Red Lantern has become one of Sydney’s most acclaimed Vietnamese restaurants. Luke has written six cookbooks: <i>Secrets of the Red Lantern</i>,<i> Songs of Sapa</i>, <i>Indochine</i>, <i>Greater Mekong</i> and <i>The Food of Vietnam</i> and <i>Luke Nguyen's France</i>.</p>

Astronom dan peminat astronmi senantiasa terobsesi dengan dua pertanyaan besar: (1) Bagaimana asal usul alam semesta dengan segala isinya? Lalu (2) adakah kehidupan di luar angkasa sana? Buku ini memang bukan buku teks astronomi yang merangkai data dan interpretasi teknis, tetapi semacam reportase wartawan yang menggali beragam informasi astronomis mutakhir yang malah mengunggah keingintahuan kita.
—Prof. DR. Thomas Djamaluddin, Profesor Riset Astronomi dan Astrofisika Lembaga Penerbangan dan Antariksa Nasional (LAPAN)
Penulis menguraikan pandangan menarik tentang bagaimana Bumi bisa jadi bukan satu-satunya planet berpenghuni di alam semesta ini, dan bagaimana fenomena UFO dijelaskan secara ilmiah. Dilengkapi ilustrasi yang menarik dan referensi terkini, buku ini adalah bacaan yang bermanfaat bagi mereka yang tertarik dengan dunia Ufologi, maupun Astrobiologi.
—Bayu Amus, Direktur dan Peneliti BETA-UFO Indonesia
Pada setiap seminar saya selalu berpesan, “Masalah UFO dan Alien hanya soal WAKTU.” Waktu akan memberikan jawaban pada semua pertanyaan kita mengenai keberadaan “mereka” di luar sana. Dan kabar gembiranya, buku ini membantu Anda mempelajari keberadaan “mereka” dari sudut pandang yang berbeda dari kebanyakan buku-buku yang sejenisnya!
—Muhammad Irfan, Owner Komunitas UFO Indonesia (UFOnesia)
Kemunculan buku ini sangat menggembirakan para penikmat astronomi di Nusantara. Gerbang pembuka bagi para calon penikmat dunia astronomi.—Muhammad Rayhan, Ketua Himpunan Astronomi Amatir Jakarta (HAAJ)
A female close to Alex received eternal life in the fourteenth century and is a member of a group known as The Xanda. Alex knows nothing of this. Throughout centuries The Xanda are the ardent guardians in what they perceive to be the precious gift of eternal life. They are ruthless in accomplishing its preservation. They will harm anyone, kill anyone, to ensure the gift is maintained. Crucially, the gift must be accepted once every one hundred and eleven years by the eldest daughter in the Lasalles family or the gift is expunged. Alex refuses and The Xanda creates catastrophic circumstances that resonate throughout Alex’s previously perfect life.
A ghost, Yolande Lasalles, murdered in the eighteenth century by The Xanda when she refused eternal life, becomes Alex’s spirit guide. The only way they can communicate is to utilize the scented white flower of the Datura tree.
Subsequent of Yolande’s and Alex’s evasive tactics, The Xanda create havoc, impinging on the lives of Alex, her close friend Lauren Webb, and Lauren’s toddler daughter. Detective Senior Sergeant Jondhal and his colleague, James Nguyen, slowly but irretrievably also become implicated in Alex’s life with devastating consequences. Both groups fight for survival to the bitter end.
Amis d’enfance, ils ont 17 ans quand la guerre éclate. C’est à Saïgon, à 12 000 kilomètres de la Métropole, qu’ils apprennent la mobilisation générale. Incrédules, en juin 40, ils suivent à la radio l’invasion des troupes de l’Axe qui emportent leurs illusions de jeunes patriotes.
Paul, un Eurasien qui a grandi à Marseille, Charles, le fils d’un riche colon de l’Annam, Jean, dont le père est pilote sur la rivière Saïgon, se trouvent propulsés dans l’âge adulte. Leur amitié résistera-t-elle à leurs engagements politiques opposés ?
Ils vont subir, chacun de leur côté, la violence de l’invasion et de l’occupation japonaise sur l’Asie du sud-est et seront témoins des années dramatiques que connaîtra l’Indochine de 1940 jusqu’à la chute de Diên Biên Phu en 1954. Au milieu des tensions politiques et des tergiversations des gouvernements en Métropole, les trois amis vont assister, impuissants mais révoltés, à la lente et cruelle dérive de la colonie française qui se dirige vers l’aventure communiste.
Des scènes d’une époque révolue, des actions tragiques et poignantes se fondent dans les paysages somptueux du Nord Laos, de l’Annam et du Haut-Tonkin.
Un roman historique très documenté sur un épisode marquant du XXe siècle !
Quelles que soient les stations de radio, les nouvelles restaient confuses. Les speakers faisaient surtout mention de la lâcheté de l’agression ennemie qui n’avait pas hésité à violer la neutralité affichée des trois pays agressés. Ils apprirent que la Luftwaffe bombardait sans relâche les aérodromes hollandais et belges et que leurs gouvernements demandaient l’aide de leurs alliés. Les communiqués parlaient de résistance acharnée des forces franco-britanniques, belges et hollandaises.
– Vous voyez, nos troupes sont arrivées sur les lieux et barrent la route aux quelques éléments allemands qui ont pu percer ici ou là les défenses alliées.
En fin de journée, leur confiance était toujours intacte. Par la BBC, ils apprirent que le roi d’Angleterre avait appelé Winston Churchill pour assumer la fonction de Premier ministre. Cette nouvelle fit réagir Louis.
– Churchill est un fervent partisan de la guerre à outrance.
– Absolument ! Vous allez voir, la réponse des alliés va être puissante.
CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE
Une superbe balade à la fois dans le temps, l'histoire et le Vietnam. - Carteroutiere, Babelio
À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR
Après des études de droit international et de journalisme, Olivier Nourry a créé la société Créations Métaphores, éditeur de tissus d’ameublement de luxe qu’il a dirigé pendant 28 ans. En 2013, Il a publié son premier roman aux Editions Glyphe, Mémoires oubliées, primé par le Lions Club.
Professional women in Australia were never treated as well as men, and the author faced even more challenges by virtue of being an immigrant. In this memoir, she looks back at the hard work that made her a success and provides business and spiritual tips, such as:• If you have a great business idea, only share it with people who have a genuine interest in supporting you because supposed friends can quickly become enemies. • Attend important business meetings with someone you trust because if you’re alone against a wild shark, there’s a chance you’ll be bitten. • Let go of disappointment and resentment so you can become who you want to be without restrictions. • Release grief by freeing the spirits of loved ones so they can find their way to heaven.
The author, a Reiki master, also explores how anyone can practice the hands on healing system to calm the mind, heal the body, and boost positive energy.
The book was a collection of my experience, impression and feeling of my journey in Australia, the country of meeting points. It included joy, worry, anxiety, surprise and disappointment, suddenness and interest…in Australia. It was the feeling of Melbourne, the green city and its interesting night, “the capital of thickets” - Canberra, busy Sydney, impression of visa, kanguroo, koala and penguin…“Author's confidence” and “Short extracts of other travels” were the last in the book. It was the open finish of this book. The writing was my prayer for peace in the earth, finish bombs, children have many foods, nobody is poverty-stricken, everybody can travel…Please read stories in this book “Travel in Australia, the country of meeting points”. Every story was every interesting meeting point.
So, I have visited five continents, four homelands of the most famous ancient cultures, three biggest countries. It was my dream when I was a little girl and now I have traveled. Also, something urged me to write my feeling, impression of those travels and I want to share with friends, especially want to share with young friends who is hoping about new lands.
This book is not a guide-book to travel. It also was not a list of all my travels or all countries where I came. This book was a collection of my experience, impression and feeling of countries, regions where I visited. It included joy, worry, anxiety, surprise and disappointment, suddenness and interest…Would be more useful when the book was written by bilingual: Vietnamese and English. These bilingual pages could make more enthusiasm and self-confident when you are thinking about trips, preparing or traveling in somewhere. Honestly, when I started writing stories in English, I was unself-confident and knew that I should study so much. One American author, he is my friend, who edited my first stories, laughed when I told that sometimes my English could be “silly” because I was not an American. He said if I though that every American could speak and write English very well then it was not true; United States of America was the country of many people from other countries. It seemed as their “silly” English could make freshness and riches of American-English. It was accepted like as a factor of language development.
In this book, feeling and experience of travels spread from near to far, step by step, in five sections. The first section included stories of Asian travels with the starting point was a story of Hanoi, my native city. The second section was my impression in Australia. My experience and feeling of travels in Europe were presented in the third section. The fourth section was stories of mysterious land - Egypt. The last section included stories of my travel in USA, the country with distance is half of the earth from Vietnam.
Feeling of a oversea travel started from apply for entry visa. Every time I received a new visa on my passport, I got special feeling. It seemed that a door opened in front of my eyes, step by step, with new things. “Visa” also was the name of a story in this book. For many Vietnamese, “visa” (English word) more familiar than “thi thuc” (Vietnamese word). Therefore, VISA is the name of this book. When the book “Visa” is published, it can bring to me the similiar feeling, it opens door for next books with new travels and new others. The world is a big village. Please, let go and come, try and feel.
Thank so much for my friends, who helped me in nice travels and helped me to complete this book.
Thank Google’s help to transfer this book to Readers.

Giới thiệu về sách
Bạn đọc thân mến.
Thế là tôi đã thực hiện được ước nguyện từ thời bé thơ: đặt chân đến năm châu lục, bốn xứ sở quê hương của những nền văn hóa cổ xưa nổi tiếng và ba cường quốc. Rồi một điều nữa cứ thôi thúc trong tôi là ghi lại những cảm nhận và trải nghiệm của mình về những chuyến đi này cùng mong muốn được chia sẻ với các bạn, đặc biệt là các bạn trẻ đang mơ về những miền đất lạ.
Quyển sách này không phải một tài liệu hướng dẫn du lịch. Nó cũng không liệt kê ra tất cả các chuyến đi hay tất cả các quốc gia mà tôi đã đến. Quyển sách này là tập hợp những trải nghiệm, ấn tượng và cảm nhận của tôi về những miền đất khác nhau: có vui thích, có lo âu, có trăn trở, có ngạc nhiên thất vọng, có bất ngờ thú vị… Sẽ hữu ích hơn khi những trải nghiệm này được thể hiện bằng cả hai thứ tiếng: Việt và Anh. Những trang song ngữ này có thể sẽ giúp bạn thêm hưng phấn và tự tin khi bạn đang nghĩ về những chuyến đi, đang chuẩn bị hành trang hoặc đang trong một cuộc viễn du nào đó. Thú thật, khi bắt đầu viết các chuyện ngắn bằng tiếng Anh, tôi cũng không tự tin cho lắm và biết rằng mình phải học hỏi nhiều. Một tác giả người Mỹ, người bạn mà tôi nhờ đọc và biên tập giúp những bài đầu tiên, đã cười phá lên khi tôi nói rằng câu chữ tiếng Anh của tôi có thể “ngô nghê” bởi tôi không phải là người Mỹ. Rồi anh bạn tôi giải thích rằng không phải người Mỹ nào cũng sử dụng tốt tiếng Anh. Thêm nữa Hợp chủng quốc Hoa kỳ là quốc gia của những người đến từ nhiều miền đất khác nhau. Có vẻ như cách dùng tiếng Anh đôi khi “ngô nghê” của họ đã khiến cho tiếng Anh-Mỹ trở nên tươi mới và phong phú hơn. Điều đó được chấp nhận như những nhân tố cho sự phát triển ngôn ngữ.
Trong quyển sách nay, cảm nhận và trải nghiệm về các chuyến đi sẽ được trải ra từ gần đến xa trong năm phần. Những câu chuyện về các chuyến đi tới các nước châu Á được giới thiệu trong phần thứ nhất với câu chuyện đầu tiên là về Hà Nội, thành phố quê hương tôi. Phần hai là những ấn tượng về Australia. Tiếp theo là phần ba với rất nhiều cảm xúc và trải nghiệm tại châu Âu.. Sự quyến rũ của miền đất bí ẩn đầy huyền thoại Ai Cập được thể hiện trong phần bốn. Phần cuối, phần thứ năm, là những câu chuyện ở Hoa Kỳ, xứ sở cờ hoa cách xa Việt Nam nửa vòng trái đất.
Trải nghiệm về một chuyến xuất ngoại được cảm nhận từ ngay khi làm thủ tục visa. Mỗi khi nhận được quyển hộ chiếu đã đóng dấu visa nhập cảnh tôi lại có một cảm xúc đặc biệt, dường như một cánh cửa đang dần mở ra trước mắt mình những điều mới mẻ. Đó cũng là tên của một chuyện trong quyển sách này. Chữ “visa” thậm chí quen thuộc với nhiều người Việt hơn cả chữ “thị thực”. Bởi lẽ đó, tôi đặt tên cho quyển sách này là VISA, một cái tên ngắn gọn nhưng gợi nhắc nhiều về những chuyến đi. Có thể quyển VISA này khi xuất bản cũng sẽ mang đến cho tôi cảm nhận giống như việc mở ra cánh cửa cho những quyển sách tiếp theo và nhiều chuyến đi với những điều mới mẻ khác. Thế giới là một ngôi làng lớn. Xin hãy đi và đến, trải nghiệm và cảm nhận.
Cảm ơn rất nhiều những người bạn đã giúp tôi có những chuyến đi tuyệt vời và giúp tôi thực hiện quyển sách này. Cảm ơn Google đã giúp đưa quyển sách này đến bạn đọc.
Xin cảm ơn Bạn đọc.

…”Long time ago, I was charmed by films of Queen Cleopad and her two famous lovers in history. Could not estimate level of beauty and intelligence of Cleopad.

Les auteurs se sont emparés ici du sujet. Ils nous questionnent après avoir interrogé les acteurs du monde du travail. Parce que l'amour est présent partout, sous de multiples facettes. En prendre conscience, en tenir compte dans notre façon de travailler, dans nos rapports les uns avec les autres, cela change la donne. Les implications concrètes de l'amour dans notre milieu professionnel demeurent encore largement sous-estimées. Le constat est sans appel : il est primordial d'en parler. Pour l'organisation de l'entreprise comme pour les professionnels qui y travaillent.
Un ouvrage surprenant sur l'implication des émotions dans les relations professionnelles !
À PROPOS DES AUTEURS
Cécile Sarfati et Roland de Saint Etienne associent des expériences qui viennent ici se confronter et s'enrichir : consultants, coach, psychologue, practicienne en shiatsu. Ils côtoient et accompagnent au quotidien les travailleurs, les managers, les équipes, les dirigeants des organisations depuis plus de quinze ans. Dans leurs vies professionnelles, ils ont tous deux été "touchés" par le manque d'ouverture et d'acceptation des émotions.
Telling the stories of real-world communities in a wide range of coastal settings, including America’s Gulf of Mexico coast, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, The Maldives, southern Africa, Bangladesh, and Vietnam, the case studies in Climate Change and the Coast: Building Resilient Communities reveal a rich diversity of adaptation approaches.
A number of common themes emerge that indicate opportunities, barriers, and on-ground realities for progressing adaptation at the coast. Together, they highlight the need to consciously reflect on current circumstances, contemplate future prospects, and deliberately choose pathways that are attuned to the changing circumstances climate change will bring to coastal regions. This process is termed "reflexive adaptation," capturing the principle of critical self-reflection and self-correction in the face of adversity, uncertainty, surprise, and contestation.

At the same time, and partly in response to these initiatives, many of the corporations that undertake large-scale resource exploitation have sought to address concerns regarding the impact of their activities on indigenous peoples by adopting what are generally referred to as "corporate social responsibility" (CSR) policies. This book focuses on such corporate initiatives. It does not treat them in isolation, recognising that their adoption and impact is contextual, and is related both to the wider social and political framework in which they occur and to the activities and initiatives of indigenous peoples. It does not treat them uncritically, recognising that they may in some cases consist of little more than exercises in public relations. However, neither does it approach them cynically, recognising the possibility that, even if CSR policies and activities reflect hard-headed business decisions, and indeed perhaps particularly if they do so, they can generate significant benefits for indigenous peoples if appropriate accountability mechanisms are in place.
In undertaking an in-depth analysis of CSR and indigenous peoples in the extractive industries, the book seeks to answer the following questions. What is the nature and extent of CSR initiatives in the extractive industries and how should they be understood? What motivates companies to pursue CSR policies and activities? How do specific political, social and legal contexts shape corporate behaviour? What is the relationship between indigenous political action and CSR? How and to what extent can corporations be held accountable for their policies and actions? Can CSR help bring about a fundamental change in the distribution of benefits and costs from large-scale resource exploitation and, if so, under what conditions can this occur?
Earth Matters gathers key experts from around the world who discuss corporate initiatives in Alaska, Ecuador, Australia, Canada, Peru, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Russia. The book explores the great diversity that characterises initiatives and policies under the name of "corporate social responsibility", the highly contingent and contextual nature of corporate responses to indigenous demands, and the complex and evolving nature of indigenous–corporate relations. It also reveals much about the conditions under which CSR can contribute to a redistribution of benefits and costs from large-scale resource development.
Earth Matters will be essential reading for those working in and studying the extractive industry worldwide, as well as those readers looking for a state-of-the-art description of how CSR is functioning in perhaps its most difficult setting.
