“Chuyện Tình Xa Xứ” on Tumblr

I spent the 2 hours working on the Tumblr page of “Chuyện Tình Xa Xứ”/”Passport to Love” [http://chuyentinhxaxu.tumblr.com/], a romance movie by Victor Vũ, a Việt Kiều director, whose story line reads:

A romantic comedy set in modern day Saigon, Vietnam and Orange Country, USA. Khang is a charming and handsome playboy; Hieu is his earnest and hardworking “Bill Gates” wannabe sidekick. “The Boys” are sent to study abroad in the US and to bring home a coveted American University Degree. Once in America, Khang’s life spirals into chaos; he falls for a young, single mother who happens to be the police officer who books him. While Hieu finds himself trapped between the tempting, Viet Kieu pageant girl Jennifer and his almost too perfect fiancé, Thao, back home. When Hieu’s mother falls ill, he must return to Vietnam. A distraught Jennifer follows in secrecy. While Khang stays back in America, but is confronted by his father who is utterly disappointed with his son, just when Khang and Tiffany’s world is turning over a new leaf. Having grown some, Khang seeks permission from his father to marry his betrothed while Hieu’s indecision may just leave him abandoned by loves both former and present.

The movie is co-starred by Bình Minh, a Vietnamese supermodel, Huy Khánh, Ngọc Diệp, Kathy Uyên, Tăng Bảo Quyên, and a slew of Vietnamese and overseas movie stars.

“Chuyện Tình Xa Xứ” is slated to be released on Valentine’s Day, so stay tuned. :)

I’ve found Tumblr to be very easy to use and it take the least time to set up out of all the social platforms. Therefore, most of the work was posting news and blog articles relating to the movie and its cast, as well as publishing additional information from the press release.

Kudoz to @baomoi. Thanks to them, searching for news about “Chuyện Tình Xa Xứ” was not a problem. And for the first time I’ve put Xalo’s blog search into good use. You know, Google Blog Search is not that helpful when it comes to the Vietnamese blogging community.

And just like Phạm Minh Hằng, the renowned female model, Bình Minh also has a blog on Yahoo! 360.

Over all, a combination of Tumblr, Xalo.vn and Baomoi really made life easier for me.

Oh, and I also created an account for the film on Nhắn Gửi Dot Come at : http://nhangui.com/profile/chuyentinhxaxu

    I think “Passport to Love” is the best movies in recent time.

  2. If you have seen the recent Walkers Crisp advert with supermodel danielle Bux and fiance Gary Linekar you will know what I mean by the ‘to die for’ Pink Nissan Figaro wee…For all you Pink Babes out there:
    I Recently collected my pink nissan figaro from Figs4u in Bristol and I must say it was more than worth the wait!
    Absolutely awesome. The car is like new and made to my full colour choice. Not the cheapest available but my word, the best by a long long way that I have seen!
    Very helpful staff and knowledgeable too.This babe is a lovely pastel pink exterior with ivory leather seats and trimed in slightly darker pink with the carpets in Black and cetre steering wheel and dash with matching pink. I’m in heaven!!
