Saigon. Hot. Sweaty.
We met up with our Vietnam team and they are going to help us translate the PSD files. Phuong was sick so she had to go to the ER and asked if she can finish it this week. I agreed since she is also pregnant. Congrats to Phuong and Phuoc on their newborn in 6 months or so.
Khoi and Sopheap from Synova had helped us get some postings in Vietnam for a senior Java developer. Turns out that we have one person that is interested in working so that is great. Took some cool pics of Synova office (they work hella hard) and went to Seventeen Saloon where we saw some hot banging ass chicks…on old white men (literally sitting on their laps) lol. I was told they were all prostitutes.
We will have our first meeting this week on Saturday to meet all the new interns. Samantha, who is the designer that will help us, will get to meet Kam and JM. Kevin will also be there. He is our Java intern and will be working with the senior guys I am going to set him up with.
Finance is a huge issue for any startup, but we do what we can and do what we need. I mean, I quit work already, traveled across the globe to the motherland, learned a lot of new things, but still we need some finance. Probably visit SVB to get a loan or a credit card. Let’s see how deep the rabbit hole can go.
We have two finished PSD pages done! Once the translation can be done I will be going to wire Phuong the cash, have Kevin code the preliminary for now. Khalid will work on the notifications and all that jazz.
I am in my hometown now. Mosquito up the f-ass. Hot. Last day here with my family then tomorrow morning I hit up SGN airport to fly back to the forefather’s land. SGN prices are hella pricey compare to here. Check it out.
