She has learned to speak and write Vietnamese well and has many new habits such as wearing sun protection coat from head to toe in the summer, using chopsticks, and going backpacking in her free time.

The dish is made with chicken, fresh herbs such as cilantro, purple onions and large shallots, roasted peanuts, and mangosteen. It is often served alongside hot porridge or as an appetizer at parties.
