All About My Family Heritage
Behind The History| My father,mother,aunts,uncles,grandparents and my some of my older cousins were born in Vietnam.Then after a couple years my family moved to America to start a new fresh life.Most of my cousins lived in one house for a couple years and then one family started moving out then another and another till one family was still living in that one house.They live about 30 minutes away from St.Cloud so they are still pretty close.Expect like about 2 families they live in Detroit Lakes.We are visiting them for Christmas so that is going to be a blast for all of us.My father side of the family is still in Vietnam which means most of my moms side is in America.My grandmother makes the best food in the whole family (no lie) she makes the food for the family at Christmas every year so I guess that's a really good thing.Thats like all the history that I know of at the moment.
Where Vietnam is
This is where Vietnam is in Asia it is near Laos and China.It is a pretty big country.I have been there once like last near it was really fun in my experience.
This is ramen is basically noodles.You just take boiling water place the noodle block and wait till it cooks then that's how you get ramen.(It's really good)
Little Falls the place before I came here.I spent there for about 2-2 1/2 years before i moved here.It is about 30 minutes away so it isn't far.About 3 of my families live there. And I do miss my old friends.
