"Vietnamese girls put on the pounds"

Vietnamese girls put on the pounds

The beauty of Vietnamese girls is legendary. The image of charming girls riding bicycles along streets with long black hair falling over slender shoulders is engraved in many memories.

However, 20 years of innovation and modern living has turned many slender girls into fat ladies jogging and exercising around parks and lakes in an effort to lose weight.

Like many Western women, Vietnamese sisters are now faced with obesity, something they had never contemplated before.

Perhaps the best part about this article? This comes straight from the Vietnamese Communist Government's "Women's Union," an organization that is supposed to mimic civil society and stand up for "women's issues" around the country.

- hat tip to my roommate here in Vietnam, Jacob Koch, for finding this article.
