1. Home/ accommodation
What kind of housing/accommodation do you live in?

I currently live in a bedsit, which is a compact and cozy type of accommodation that combines a bedroom, a living area, and a kitchenette in one space. While it may not be as spacious as a full-fledged apartment, it's still very comfortable and functional for my needs. I love the convenience of having everything within easy reach and not having to worry about cleaning multiple rooms. Besides, it's also more affordable compared to larger units, which is definitely a plus. Overall, I'm happy with my choice of accommodation and find it to be a great fit for my lifestyle.

Or shorter: I live in a bedsit, which is a cozy and compact type of accommodation that combines a bedroom, a living area, and a kitchenette in one space. I find it convenient, functional, and affordable, and it fits my lifestyle well.

2. Who do you live with?

I live with my father and sister. My father works in an industrial area, and my sister is a student. It's great to have family around and share the living space. We each have our own routines, but we still make time for each other. As the saying goes, "home is where the heart is," and I'm grateful for the love and support of my family.

3. How long have you lived there?
I have been living in my current bedsit for about three years now, since I graduated from university. It has been an exciting and rewarding experience to live independently and to explore the city on my own. During these three years, I have discovered many hidden gems and made new friends, which has made my time here even more enjoyable.
While it can be challenging at times to live away from my family, I feel that the experience has taught me a lot about responsibility and independence. As the saying goes, "time flies when you're having fun," and I can hardly believe that three years have already passed. Nonetheless, I look forward to continuing to make the most of my time here in the city.

4. What’s the difference between where you are living now and where you have lived in the past?
In the past, I lived in a spacious house in the countryside with my family. We had a large garden and raised farm animals. Now, I live in a smaller bedsit in the city. The main difference is the pace of life - the city is more fast-paced and vibrant. Despite the differences, I appreciate both lifestyles for their unique qualities.

5. Do you plan to live there for a long time?
I believe that I will be living in Danang for the foreseeable future because I plan to get married here and also because I see great potential for my business to thrive in this city. Danang is a living-worthy city, and I feel that it offers many opportunities for personal and professional growth. As they say, "home is where the heart is," and I feel that Danang has become my second home.
While I cannot predict the future, I am committed to making the most of my time in Danang and taking advantage of the opportunities it presents. Who knows, maybe in the future, I may even decide to settle here permanently.

6. Which room does your family spend most of the time in?
My family and I spend the most time in the living room. It's where we watch TV, play games, and entertain guests. The living room is the center of activity in our home and holds a special place in our hearts.

7. Are the transport facilities to your home very good?
The transport facilities to my home are not very good, unfortunately. There are some bus stops nearby, but the service can be unreliable and overcrowded, which can make it difficult to get to my destination on time. Additionally, there are no subway or train stations within reasonable walking distance, which can be inconvenient.
As a result, I often ride my motorbike to get around. This gives me the freedom to travel on my own schedule and avoid the crowds and delays of public transport. Riding a motorbike can be challenging, especially in heavy traffic or bad weather, but I have become accustomed to it over time and enjoy the sense of independence it provides. While I wish there were better transport options available in my area, I have learned to make the most of what is available to me.

8. Do you prefer living in a house or a flat?
Personally, I'm a homebody, so I prefer living in a house over a flat. There's something special about having your own yard or garden, and it feels more private and spacious than a flat. However, I can see the appeal of living in a flat too, especially if you want to be in the heart of the city and don't want to deal with the upkeep of a house. Ultimately, it's all about finding the right fit for your lifestyle and needs.

9. Please describe the room you live in.
The room I currently live in is not very big, but it's quite comfortable. One of the things I appreciate most about it is that it's very airy and well-lit, which makes it feel more spacious than it actually is. The walls are painted a soft, neutral color that creates a calming atmosphere, and there's a large window that lets in plenty of natural light.

10. What part of your home do you like the most?
I would have to say that my favorite part of my home is my study room. It's my own little haven, and I can spend hours in there without even noticing the time passing. It's a quiet and peaceful space that allows me to concentrate fully on my work, and it's also where I can retreat to when I need a break from the outside world. In a way, it's my "sanctuary," and I feel very fortunate to have a space like this in my home.
