Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. As the most romantic day for young couples in Vietnam, it is the occasion on which many people express their most intimate feelings towards each other – potentially in the form of proposals. I’ve collected five Valentine’s proposals that have garnered huge popularity online.
Romantic Cinema Proposal
Three guys, helped by CloseUp (a Vietnamese toothpaste brand), execute a melodic proposal. They go on a triple-date with their girlfriends – to the cinema as usual. At one point the boys all decide to go outside. Suddenly, the film on the giant cinema screen changes to a shot of the boys saying they want to give the girls something special. At which point, they start singing a few of the most heartfelt songs. Then, back to reality, the boys go to their girlfriends seats and propose. Happy ending, voila.
Two students from RMIT International University, Ho Chi Minh City prove that love has no boundaries, with the greatest, heart-wrenching proposal in history.

Like any sport in it’s infancy, kitesurfing equipment has evolved. There are three landmark inventions which made kitesurfing safer and more accessible for the broader public. Pre-2,000, kitesurfing was a two line sport. A disadvantage to only have two lines meant that the rider couldn’t adjust the power of the kite in varying wind conditions. Manufacturers in 2000 revolutionised the sport by including two more lines to the kites, which enabled the rider to depower the kite in gusts or stronger winds.
