Day 3 Reflection— Grace Tan Soo Woon

I have learnt that the Vietnamese have their own unique culture, and this culture is actually a fusion of a few aspects of other religions like Buddism and Taoism— a few saints and the usage of "ying" and "yang".

Besides that, I also learnt that during war, the Vietnamese were ingenious enough to think of underground tunnels and bomb shelters to hide in. They also knew how to use technology to make flour and rice paper to survive.
