1/ When do you meet with friends or family?

I’m working and living in HCM, but my parents reside in my hometown, HN district in DT province; it’s quite far from HCM city, maybe about 200 km. so I only meet them whenever I have a chance to visit my home, probably every 2–3 months.

My friends and I are really tied up with our work, so we meet every 3–4 months.

2/ What is your favorite hobby?

My favorite pastime activities are immersing myself in music, watching some comedies on the internet, or going out with my husband and friends. By doing these things, I can recharge my batteries.

3/ When do you usually do your hobby?

I listen to music every day because I am really into it. I watch comedies maybe every 2 days and go out every week or every 2 weeks if I have free time.

 4/ Who do you talk to about your hobbies?

It’s definitely my husband because we have many things in common. We  share the same sort of interest. He also really likes listening to music, watching comedy movies, and going out with me.

5/ Have your hobbies changed over the years?

They haven’t changed a lot except going out on the weekends. In the past, maybe 5 years ago, I went out every night. But now, I just go out every 1 or 2 weeks.

6/ If you could choose a new hobby, what would it be?

This is an interesting question. Given a choice, I would play guitar/ɡɪˈtɑːr/, because I can sing, so when I am good at playing guitar, I can both sing and play it. I think it’s great!
