I heart…

… my cousin!

Cuội, legally known as Quí, is my 21 year old cousin on my dad’s side. His dad, Chệt Vũ, is my dad’s first younger brother and Cuội is his younger of 2 sons.

Being close to my age, we became closer and I definitely enjoyed his company during our latest trip to VN. He is now labeled as my favourite Vietnam cousin.

Currently studying music and aspiring to be a singer in Vietnam, he gave me a very appropriate good bye present. Having traveled to another city to find a recording studio, he recorded 5 songs. The gift – that CD.

I have to say… the quality of the music is not the best but neither was the recording studio. His singing is also definitely not as good as he usually performs, but he did record all 5 of these songs in one take. That’s impressive enough for me. I definitely prefer his live singing, but can’t really ask for that whenever I want can I? Hahaha.

Like he said, this present isn’t worth a lot, but it really does come from the heart.

I’ve uploaded his songs onto my YouTube account and today, I share them with you! It may not be your taste, or what you consider to be good, but I hope you enjoy and appreciate!

Please listen to the originals too!
