Hi guys, I'm new here, my name's Pham Thanh Tam, was born Nov 04 1994 in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh city. I'm now a 2nd year of Saigon Tourism Vocational College, specialist's Restaurant & Hotel Administrator and with a huge passion for foods and true deep love with Japan's culture / people, made me want to become a chef and Japan will be my goal to make it come true.
After graduation, I want to apply for a scholarship (Asahi scholarship) to go to Kyoto and attend some cooking classes. Like you see, I do love Japan very much, that why I want to stay there as long as I can (3-4 years as I can and it would be the best If they let me stay there forever) but the huge problem right now is, I can't find any "Long term cooking classes" or any "vocational school" in Kyoto.
I was waiting this since I still in highschool many years ago and now I'm still waiting for 2 more years to make my dream come true, maybe my family's financial not good enough to help me do that, even my parents aren't support me to go there and many problems while applying for the scholarship. Combined all of above, made the number of percent that I can't go there up to 85% and my dream's harder to come true. But it wont hurt If you make for you some hope, right ?
Kyoto was like a 2nd homeland itself to me, some people may want to make a lot of money, a big house, an expensive car and a beautiful wife but I only want to living in Japan, in Kyoto, learn to cook, open a small restaurant for my own, marry a little cute Japanese girl, have a baby and live like that forever, dream like that is too much ?
P/S: I'm so sorry, that I go too far for a foods topic. Some how, I just want to share my feeling with you guys, so you can understand me more and so at least you can help me.
Thank for all your help, If you guys want to share anything, just post on this topic, it would be my pleasure to share my dream with you all.
