Viet Kieu traveling to Vietnam: Stop dreaming and get off your high horse.

       If you're the type of guy that dreams about going to Vietnam every year because you think that local Vietnamese people actually respect you and admire you for having lived abroad, then you need to stay away from my blog. Vietnam, especially Saigon has been rapidly developing in the past few years. Educated people are informed. They know how bad the economy is in America. This isn't the 90s anymore, locals are aware that many Viet kieu are poor and toil away to save money just to blow it all on a trip to Vietnam. If you think that being Viet kieu is actually a good thing in Vietnam, then think again. Obviously you've never lived or worked in Vietnam, faced discrimination, then again... if you could keep a decent paying job here, then you'd be living here... that's right. YOU! I'm talking to you. Yeah YOU reading this right now!

     It's a myth to think that girls will throw themselves at you. Any high quality girl from a well off family with a tiny bit of education will always be cautious about a Viet kieu. Why? It's because Viet kieus are on vacation and they can lie easily to get what they want. They're here today. Gone tomorrow. A girl who is going to give it up that quickly and easily, must be really into you. Why? Because you're paying. I'll admit that you're likely nicer and funnier and different than most guys she has ever met. But guess what, either way you're paying. You're not going to get anything for free. Whether or not you directly hand her cash. You're paying. You're getting played. The hotter girl you aim for, the more you're going to pay. A girl here solely invested in a Viet kieu is a truly desperate girl who must really hate her life in Vietnam or her family really needs an ATM. Imagine for a moment if you were a hot girl in Vietnam. Imagine that you have the chance to go to a foreign land where you don't speak the language, where all your friends are no longer there, where you'll never be able to land a decent blue collar job (just pretend you never went to college or your degree is worthless abroad), where you're forced to adapt or be trapped at home all day. How easy would you do that? Compare that to your current life right now.

   "But Kyle, I've heard so many stories of my guy friends telling me how easy it is." Would anyone admit that they paid to get laid? NOTHING IS FREE.

      Why would a girl from a family who doesn't need anything from America need to go to America and labor away or just be locked up at home all day. Why should she give up all that freedom? Because she has no future in Vietnam, thus she is low quality. Most girls you ask nowadays, from teenagers to professional women with decent office jobs do not want to move abroad. They would love to visit their friends and relative. They would love to travel as a tourist. But they would not want to relocate away from their friends and family in Vietnam because they have everything they need here.

       What about a high quality man? Aren't there fewer quality men here? Nope. That's an actual myth. Like I said, many Viet kieu guys are educated and smart. Many of them are funny and look clean. But honestly, many local Vietnamese guys are too. What do they have over a Viet kieu? Well first, they can be way more rich. They can come from better families. Culturally and language wise, they are the same, thus a much better fit for each other. Are there any negative traits? Of course, loads, but the same traits will still apply to a Viet kieu who loves local girls. I've met girls in the past who actually claims that there isn't much difference between Viet kieu on the prowl in Saigon than any other Viet guy. The main difference is that the Viet kieu has more disposable money at a short amount of time because he's on vacation. Yeah, girls know this now. If a girl is into a Viet kieu just because he's a Viet kieu, that's like a girl telling you she wants to be with you because you have black hair or because you have a cute smile. A little shallow right? A gold digger? Exactly, my point. So think about it next time. What do you really have over a local guy? Maybe you don't care that a girl in her late 20s' is past her prime in Vietnam? Ahhhh, of course, she's desperate for marriage because no girl here wants to be alone into their 30s. *cough DESPERATE!! *cough Are you actually more faithful? Are you actually wiser? Do you drive an Acura? I bet you know more English. But why does a local girl need your English? Oh, and you ride bitch when you come over here because you're too pussy to maneuver the traffic. Wow, that's such hot stuff from such a manly man. Any girl would swoon over driving her man around here. (sarcasm) What do you really have over a local guy here from a decent family?

     How many horror stories have you heard about a hot girl coming to America and dumping her foolish husband? How many rich girls vs. poor girls emigrated because of marriage?

     But a Viet kieu's family must really love and respect him right? Not necessarily. The love and attention you get from your family is because of your parents directly or indirectly helping those relatives. How much money has your family sent to your relatives? Next time come to Vietnam and not bring your family any gifts. Don't go shopping at Costco and see what happens. Come empty handed. They'll put up with you because you're a damn guest for a month. Afterwards, you won't be around anymore. Do you really think the admiration and care for you is real? For some families it is, because the family unit in Vietnam can be very strong. Vietnamese people will do anything for their families. Therefore, it's not because you're Viet kieu that they're treating you nicely. Blood will always be pampered, especially foreign blood. MAU MY!!!  YO.  Try living here for as long as I have and see if your relatives still care that much about you. Remember, in Vietnam, when you go visit someone you have to bring something. If they tell you not to, you still have to do it because they will talk shit about you when you leave. It's a fact. If you don't believe me, ask your parents.

      I get it, you're special because you wear brand names that nobody has ever heard of before. I know you're all mighty because your Ed Hardy shirt was bought at the mall and not an outlet like the rest of your brand new clothes. (The only time a FOB shops for new clothes is before he goes back to Vietnam) Face it, everything that makes you special is primarily superficial, because whatever you have mentally can also be replicated here with a local guy or isn't in demand from a local girl.

       The youth here don't give a rat's ass about whether or not your a Viet kieu. That term isn't even a part of their daily language. If you surveyed random people ( and I do this all the time whenever I travel or around town ) the countryside people who don't know any better will be in awwww about how much money you make a month compared to them, but city people are smart enough to calculate your cost of life and miserable America can be for Vietnamese people who never truly assimilated. Thus many of them are desperate to return to Vietnam where they can feel like a real man. Oh wait, that's when they meet a desperate girl who needs a real man. PERFECT!! Two desperate souls finding each other. Mark my words, unless a girl was from a well off family with a decent international education enough to understand the west culturally, I can't imagine being with her for long term. Now ask me this in 10 years when I'm still single and desperate. I'm sure my mind would change. But for now, I'm just meeting local girls here as a way to entertain you readers.

        Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of cute girls with education here in Saigon. But they're smart enough to be cautious about a loser Viet kieu like me. Luckily, I'm smart enough to be aware of myself.
Now it's your turn. It's your turn to finally look into the mirror and realize that you're not that special. If you think being Viet kieu gives you instant advantage, then you're not looking at yourself hard enough. If anything, it's more of a negative thing being a Viet kieu. Watch any movies produced here and see how they portray the Viet kieu. It's very revealing. It's 2014. Saigon's got everything.

      But don't let me deter you from coming here. Sorry for bursting your bubbles. Do come here. Visit your homeland, travel all of Vietnam, don't just stay in the south like a little bitch, the north is beautiful with girls far more beautiful than the south, and spend time with your family. Get to know a decent local girl because there are plenty of charming individuals out here who are genuinely nice. But they might be ugly. Yet, it can be very rewarding. But lose that sense of entitlement and stop being an asshole.

                    - your friend,

                                    Kyle.

    1. Kyle speaks the truth everyone. Accept it! Here are excellent articles from the #1 Vietnamese American daily newspaper "Báo Người Việt":

      For those who can't read Vietnamese or too lazy to read:

      Theo số liệu của Bộ Nội An, trong năm 2010, có tới tổng cộng 2,981 visa được cấp cho người đi theo diện bảo lãnh vợ chồng, cả hai dạng có điều kiện (CR-1) và không điều kiện (IR-1). Số gần 3,000 visa vợ chồng này chiếm tới 15% trong tổng số 20,518 visa cho người Việt Nam qua Mỹ định cư theo diện bảo lãnh gia đình.

      In 2010, US Immigration tracked 20,518 visas for family sponsored to emigrate permanently to USA from Vietnam. Only 15% of that number, less than 3,000 visas, were issued for "real?" marriage/fiance route.

      I always thought the figures were higher, until I got the facts. NOW imagine if those desperate girls in Sài Gòn knew of these statistics. Then they would realize that their odds of completing a US marriage to citizenship is slim to none.

  6. My mom wanted me to marry a Vietnamese 'young adult' and bring her into America. For what? To teach her how to drive a car, to buy a car for the young adult, to help her be a cashier at the local supermarket??? I would have to be the sugar daddy for her and her relatives in Vietnam. No thanks! I'm in a local relationship where < I > get bags of Christmas gifts and got an offer for free vacation to Europe.

    2. Be honest with yourself bro. Your youtubes videos are very entertaining, I'm actually a genuine fan of your work, but whether you want to admit it or not the the same girls who are open to you romantically in Vietnam wouldn't look at you twice in America. I just never seen a guy that looks like you in the USA have pretty girls in love with him unless he's a millionaire. You do have an advantage in Vietnam romantically, which whether you choose to admit or not is not a first world country just yet. Developing.....obviously.......cream of the crop?....Hopefully soon... but not yet. I usually just read your stuff and agree with most of what you say. But this time nah. I been to Vietnam plenty of times with a few guys , some of whom, if we are being complete honest, are really nice guys, but considered dorky in the America. Yet in Saigon the "Viet Kieu" advantage definitely did have the local girls much more open to there advances, as compared to what I see them pulling in America. Besides that I agree with what you say about the relatives part. Keep up the great body of work man. Love your videos hope it gets bigger. Thing is too, I'm sure the Vietnam Government loves these videos, as they should, because they love the economical impact of tourist dollars. And you help that cause. Hope you get huge bro. You and that funny man.

  7. Vietnam girls want the same thing as any girl in this world wants. A guy who is not fake, a cheater and a liar. She just wants someone who loves her and will be there for her. I'm from Cali, NorCal, and travel to Vietnam many times a year for business and if anyone thinks Viet girls are somehow different from any other girls it just shows you don't know women anywhere!

    1. "She wants someone to love her." hahahahahhahahah only ugly girls want that. Get real bro, a hot girl in America is way more independent and down to earth than Vietnam. In Vietnam, attractive girls are usually not educated. You don't understand the system here and how tough it is to actually make money. Girls in America are far more independent and not so dependent on men and marriage. It's okay for a girl in her late 20s and 30s to not get married. Girls in America date for the sake of dating. in Vietnam, the only thin gon their mind is either money or marriage.

      Delete
    2. Yes, you are right, however there is the fine line between finding your true love vs a stable life.

      From what I've seen, most viet girls are attracted to stability - a financially secured man. Being good looking and everything else is a plus. Vietnam relationships and family is all about MONEY MONEY MONEY!!!! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

  8. Well, no matter how hard you think it is for viet kieu who travel to Vietnam to get a girl, they've still got a lot more options in Vietnam than America. That's why they go there in the first place. No one's gonna travel thousands of miles to get a girl if they have more options where they currently are.

    1. Preach. That's real spit right there. Any one saying different is just lying in general or lying to themselves trying to convince themselves what your saying isn't true to make themselves feel better. Got to admit though we are lucky to have a guy like Kyle Le willing to put himself out there like this and share what's going on in Vietnam. Kyle's lucky too to have such a golden opportunity and pioneering this whole thing over there. There's no glass ceiling in Vietnam for his channel. He's the only one doing it consistently, and he's on the front page of a huge Vietnamese newspaper because of it. In America a Youtube channel would never even have the slightest possibility of say being on the front of the New York times unless it has tons of millions of views and even then, its a very very slim chance of it happening. In Vietnam Kyle le is the biggest, and best. That's something man. You look at how the Vietnamese government rolled out the red carpet treatment for Anthony bourdain etc to promote their country and tourism. I can only imagine how much they love a guy who promotes them every single day with a new video. My guess is if Kyle keeps going at this eventually he will be HUGE.

  10. Again all this talk from a guy who has been here 2.5 years and still no girl. It's hard to think Kyle's perspective is normal. I've come to the conclusion it isn't Vietnam or the girls there but it's Kyle's shortcoming that hinders his success or having a girl.

    1. I'm single because I choose to be. What girl in their right mind would want to be with someone who could disappear tomorrow? Someone who doesn't want marriage any time soon and someone who won't give them gifts to get or keep their attention. It's not just me, it's this whole experiment. The experiences of a 22 year old is going to be a lot different than an experience of a 32 year old. How americanized he is. I'm single because I have other options and I'm not that desperate. If I wanted to, I could get a girlfriend, but ultimately, why?? None of my non fobby friends from back home would have any interest in any of the girls here. I'm not going to settle, that's for sure. Ask me again in 10 years. Might be different.

      Delete
    2. I also think Kyle's perspective isn't normal. I'm sure if you took a poll of Viet Kieu guys who went back to Vietnam, most of them would say they had no troubles finding a hot girl that they were satisfied with. And that being a Viet Kieu was an advantage for them.

      I think the reason why Kyle's perspective is different is just cause he has different standards. I believe him when he says he can get a girl. Shoot, he could have W4 if he wanted to. He just doesn't want to. And therein lies the difference. Like he said before in one of his blogs, any guy would probably kill to be out with W4. But to Kyle, that would be settling. So in his mind, being VK isn't helping because he hasn't been able to find the right girl based on his standards. But to other guys, W4 would be top notch.

      The fact that Kyle could be with W4 if he wanted though totally kills his arguments. If a viet kieu can get with someone high quality like W4 without even being rich, then how much of a negative can it be to be viet kieu?

      Delete
    3. You have to look at my age and how much more westernized I am compared to the typical Vk guy that comes to Vietnam looking for love. I didn't come here looking for love. I came here for other reasons. My standards are completely different. I'm a needy guy who needs attention all the time. W4 defnitely has been the highest quality girl I've ever been with here in Vietnam. She's not desperate. But for me, the biggest problem keeping us apart is ME. not her. I'm too wishy washy. I could disappear tomorrow. She knows all about Viet kieus. She's not desperate. She has a college education. We actually text each other in English most of the time. But she's smart enough not to throw herself at me because she's not desperate. It isn't easy. I lost her trust once, and for now, we'll just remain friends. I'm kind of burnt out with Vietnamese girls in general. Same ole same ole. I've had Vk friends who have met W4 that have said that they would marry her. Lol.

      Delete
    4. For me it comes down to language and culture. I feel so much more myself when I can speak English. Anytime I talk to a girl that speaks English nowadays I completely forget about Vietnamese local girls no matter how hot they are. W4 has that sexy northern accent going for her though. I can't stand the Mien Tay accent on girls no matter how sexy they are. Oh, I also have a deep rooted resentment towards my mother, and a lot of these girls remind me of my mother so.... HAHAHAHAHAA SOJOURNALING VIETNAM

    6. Kyle is actually the guy on a high horse he wants to pretend he doesn't have an advantage in Vietnam getting pretty girls. Maybe he even wants to convince himself that his new found silver tongue has all the girls lining up in Vietnam. But deep down he knows the main reason the pretty girls only are open to him in Viet Nam is because hes Viet Kieu. Its not a bad thing, its just real talk. And what's with all this westerner talk? Im California born and raised but I still consider my values more Vietnamese then American. When my parents get, old they are not going to be thrown into a nursing home to die miserably. They can live with me, I'll feed and do whatever needs to be done rightfully, till they good and dead.

    7. Lol, talk is cheap bro. Girls here like me because I'm different and because I'm actually kind of interesting and wordly. Not because I'm Viet Kieu. i also have more money than a lot of guys my age to spend. At the same time, tons of local guys who are far richer get much hotter girls who wouldn't even date a viet kieu because they're losers. So there ya go.

      if you consider your values more Vietnamese then you wouldn't smoking next to babies?
      Or hitting your kids? Or sharing a cup with a bunch of other strangers? btw, nursing homes aren't that bad. old people to make friends and have professional nurses to take care of them. You work all day and leave your old parents at home? That's f'n miserable man.

    8. "Lol, talk is cheap bro. Girls here like me because I'm different and because I'm actually kind of interesting and wordly. Not "ONLY"because I'm Viet Kieu."

      If you add in the word "ONLY" where I inserted it above, I would 100% agree with this statement.
      I'm not saying you're not interesting, worldly etc. And I'm sure those assets help keep the girls interested long term. I actually think you're a very articulate ,funny guy Kyle. But what I am saying is it wouldn't be enough in America to get the same caliber and volume of girls without the extra Viet Kieu incentive. That's just real spit man, no ones knocking your game. I actually think its great and appreciate what your doing in the mother land.

    9. educated girls that aren't desperate for money at the age of 18-22 do not care about viet kieu this or viet kieu that. they might be interested in me because I have money. I live in the Beverly Hills of Vietnam. They know they won't have to support me etc etc. Lots of reasons. But being Viet kieu is not what they are running towards

    10. Being viet kieu gave you the opportunity to have more money than a lot of local viets though. Viet kieu = money. So in essence, viet kieu is what they're running towards.

    11. My VN wife explains it to me like this: any VN girl wants to marry money, period! Of course she would like to marry "Handsome Prince Charming" who is filthy rich, but reality means she doesn't get both in the same man. First she has tobmarry the man with money.. I don't me a guy who makes a comfortable income of $100+ per year. I mean a guy who is rich like inheriting millions because handsome prince charming must also be young enough to look really good.. But a husband is always expendable.. He can be replaced easily as can any lover or boyfriend.. One is as good as another and can always be changed out.. But not the money! That's the sacred cow; not love..

  11. Hey Kyle. I'm a fan of yours for a while now. But why do I get the impression that you're a bit hateful towards Vietnamese girls? Seems like you think hot, Saigonese girls are classier and overall better than pretty girls living in Vietnam's countryside? I think all girls are different. Living in Saigon doesn't make the girl classier or smarter, nor does living in the countryside make girls dumber and greedier.

  12. Well said Kyle, VK got to get themselves up to date on VN or else they to got themselves to blame. Stop thinking VN is like the old days.
    Here is a circumstance an old VK got himself into from not being up to date with modern VN's society. Being an old soldier from the south VN and come from a once time privilege rich family. Unfortunately not very bright also hating every that is communism, listened to his friend go back to VN and got himself a young-not bad looking wife so she can look after him after his marriage broken up nearer to retirement age. The wife is only interest in weekly monthly money so she can sent back to her family. As for him, he his only interest in young flesh and daily tradition VNese cooking. So the marriage lived out in daily arguments with reasons can be only be lack of money for him and her. At an old age you would think he should be enjoying what left of his life but instead it is just a daily misery for him.
    Moral story here is not to think VN is like what the western press tells you (Women are obedience and look after there elders) But do your research and DO NOT ACT LIKE A JACK ASS VIET KIEU WHO LIKES TO SHOW OFF THEIR DOLLARS. Have respect for the people there and have your head screwed on.
    How do I know this old guy. I used to lounged at his house as a student and witnessed their childish arguments at any given time of the day. Why do I think he is ignorance? because he was surprised at how modern it is of the houses in VN are after seeing some new VNese films....Jack ass!!

  14. The girls who would go out with a foreigner or the girls who would give it up easily are not the kind to get into a relationship with. Then you ask them if they've ever had a boyfriend and usually their answer is just one, but no boyfriend now. In general. A N. American or European who's been with a few guys can still be normal and cool. I don't really get that vibe with the Vietnamese.

    In addition, girls here aren't that interesting. At least in America the girls would have some hobbies or do some sports. Here it's like there's no money for that, so they don't develop that part of themselves. Same could be said with the guys. Generalizing.

    2. What's with the double standard. Genetically these Viet girls in Vietnam are the same as the Viet girls in America. They are a product of their harsher environment, where making big money is much more difficult than here. So they worry more about spending their limited resources on survival type necessities (like food and shelter) than being leisurely wasteful like a lot of us Americans born Viets are. There's nothing different about them as a natural born human race, if you were born Vietnamese in Vietnam you would be the same way. Given time these girls would adapt if they lived in America too, and pick up some fucking hobbies, which is what it seems like you base a huge part of a human beings values on? They are only developed if they have fucking hobbies? Get the fuck out of here with that crap man. You just sounds ignorant. My families been in America longer than any other Viet family I've ever met here. They were flown out prior to the fall of Saigon, and throughout all of these years in America when I go back to Vietnam I still look at the people in Vietnam with the same respect I would, if I had met them in America. Because they are MY people. Vietnam and its people are beautiful, ask Anthony Bourdain!

    3. Hey, I get all of that being a product of a harsh environment. I'm not stupid. I just said that the girls and guys here don't have hobbies/interests and yes it's because they're in survival mode. But often it's not because they're in survival mode, but rather a product of the environment. I didn't say that there's something wrong with that. It's just different. It's an observation, not a double standard.

      Don't put words in my mouth. Do I think that Vietnamese in Vietnam are genetically different than Vietnamese in America? Did I say that Vietnamese Americans are better than Vietnamese in Vietnam? No, I didn't. If people find a boyfriend/girlfriend here, good for them.

      And it's not just about being able to spend money on hobbies, but being able to try new things and having an open mind as a result. Have you been going out with Vietnamese girls in Vietnam? I have been. When I'm finished I'll have been here for more than a year. Have you met many Vietnamese Americans who have gone back as adults and actually lived in and worked in Vietnam for a long time? I doubt it. I'm just saying this from my experience. And I said in general, as not everybody is the same.

      Hey guess what? My family also came to the US before the Fall of Saigon. My family had links to the US well before the Fall of Saigon. Well about my family: all close uncles in the military, relatives killed, re-education, land taken. Land still being taken even in the past few years. And some are still pretty poor.

      YOUR people? Please. Yes, respect for family and all that. But be a bit more pragmatic and realize that it's not all sunshine.

      I'm not an expert. But am I ignorant? What makes you say that, exactly? What do you have to say?

    4. What I'm talking about is the same thing as a guy who was raised in San Francisco going on a date with a girl who spent her whole life in North Dakota or some other Midwest state. There will be a bit of a mismatch. Does that mean one is better than the other? No.

      Vietnamese girls have nice qualities, like any race, depending on the person.

  15. Kyle, I don't expect you to allow this comment through, but today you lost a fan.

    I sometimes comment with my own personal views or claims backed by evidence and you have not allowed my comment through even though you let tons of really immature comments through by other people. I never insult you but do try to criticize your opinions to challenge your viewpoints yet you never post my comments. You tell other people to get off their high horses, but it seems like your ego can't take any opposing viewpoints. Maybe it's because you think you're well-travelled or that your fans loyally defend your intelligence, but to me, you have a lot of maturing to do and maybe you're stuck in your own world and can't look beyond it. Today I realized that you're just a phony who maybe only cares about his image and ego with this fairly popular blog that he's created. I no longer care to hear your narrative as it's so easy to find counter examples to your opinions. I do wish you the best, but I'll judge Vietnam using my own experiences and leave you to your high opinions of yourself and your wildly different view of VN.

    1. Chill dude, if you commented and the posts didn't go through it's because you mentioned some key words that might be too sensitive for reasons beyond bashing me. I'm in Vietnam, don't forget that. There are certain phrases or words that can not go through and my people will delete them. Btw, for those of you wondering, I AM NOT THE ONE moderating which messages go through. I have full time commitments in the day time. I don't do all the trivial things. I'll even admit that I don't even read or comment my own YouTube comments anymore because i simply don't have the time. If anything is important they'll go to me. I'm sorry, but I just don't have the time. So I'm sorry if your comments got deleted.

    2. Why don't you shut up whiny sounding goofball. Honestly bro if you think you can do better than Kyle Le at accurately portraying the culture, and what's going on in Vietnam while entertaining the rest of us, by all means be my fucking guest. If not then yeah I agree with you, you should go ahead take your ball and run home cry...whatever. Who gives a crap if you don't like his views, these are HIS personal experiences and HIS personal reflections on HIS said travels. And he has every right, I didn't read him say one time you are forced to feel the same way, conform, or he's going to break off your leg. Do you agree with everything your friends do in their personal lives? His travels and his opinion pieces are his to dissect. I commented six times above on this particular journal entry. First time I ever felt compelled to comment here because I like you, didn't agree with some of what Kyle said, and guess what, although there was a lot of negative in some of what I posted, he posted every single one of my very long responses. .... What I didn't do was read one journal entry not like it and then launch into some weird diatribe about how he's such an egomaniac/phony, with a distorted view of the world, and I have to condemn him now. You're the fucking phony dude put up some of your own videos, then we can talk. Until you have the balls/courage to put yourself out there like Kyle does, your words don't mean shit to me. I'm willing to bet you if we all met in person, the nice guy in YOU would come out real quick. Put your teenage mutant ninja turtle pajamas on and call it a night bro.

    3. lol. I think if you read carefully, i admit many times that it's my fault. I've already admitted to being biased, then again every humanly opinion is biased. Of course my view of the world is only based on what i have experienced, what I see from my surroundings, what others have told me, experiences that i have seen from other people, and other forms of research that I've concluded based off of my own observations. Honestly, I'm sick of people griping and moaning about what the real Vietnam. The real Vietnam is what you choose it to be. Nothing's authentic when you come and visit Vietnam as a tourist. Please live here, please be my age, and please be me and then you can really say that I'm a phony because in the end, all i gotta say, I am a phony. So what?

    4. Kyle: are you "employed" other than this?... In a job or is this your "job.".. Just curious. Answer doesn't really matter ..

    1. The guys who disagree with me are all in their 30s. They're desperate. When they go to Vietnam they LOOK for a mate. If you are looking you'll find a girl alright and shape her to whatever way you want. None of these guys have dated girls between 19-24 like me. In fact, come to think of it, most girls during my initial time living here were all between 20-22. That age range is a whole different animal. They ain't that desperate to get married, nor do they care about viet kieus all that much when so many young dudes here have loads of their parents cash

  17. As someone who has met Kyle in real life, I have to say that he looks a lot better than in the videos. He just needs to take off his stupid cap and then he actually is actually a pretty good looking fellow. He's just super short. That's why he can't get the girls LoL just kidding

    5. 5'5'' on a good day. I have a very skinny upper frame though. It's kind of interesting because my dad is very bulky.

    6. Son, you will be bulky when you're get to my age.

    7. Yeah get a nose job and bleach your skin like Michael Jackson. While your at it get a gold paul wall grill too. You know what's funny as hell about this particular "high horse" Kyle Le journal entry? It controversial, somewhat politically incorrect, offensive but very entertaining, which is why its getting so many comments as opposed to a lot of the more tame stuff that he puts up on this blog. It even got an anti-writing, unless its for my job, and I'm getting paid for it guy, like me worked up to start posting. You could spin this off into a lot of different businesses Kyle. Put some more girls like Nina or those west coast white girls in your videos. I like pound cake and snails as much as the next guy, but staring at cooked snails for 4 minutes can get tedious.

  18. Everyone is entitled to their own views. Kyle you want the exposure, sometimes it can be positive others times it can be negative. Just be careful cause from the sound of things their seems to be a lot of hate fermenting.

  21. Reading this particular blog, I couldn't stop thinking about the song "Handle with Care" by the Traveling Wilburys....

    "I've been uptight and made a mess
    But I'll clean it up myself, I guess
    Oh, the sweet smell of success
    Handle me with care"

    There's a girl for every guy, Kyle. You will find yours sooner or later.

  22. Look guys,
    Vietnam is about survival mode. Forget this whole topic of Vk guys...Vietnam is about daily survival. Local women or men are trying to make ends meet. There are good people in Vietnam, but many also need to survive so some do things that they wouldn't normally do or act.

  23. I had a VK friend who was intent on going to Vietnam to marry a local gal...the funny thing is that he met a white American gal(New Yorker)over there and ended up marrying her. He returned to the U.S to settle down with her. He even mentioned that if any VK is interested in Caucasian women, go to Asia and find one...seriously. He said the white women there are more compassionate and understanding of the world than just your typical white female in the U.S...which is the reason why those women are there to begin with.
