Reporting live from Sài Gòn!
Just a stone’s throw away from our brick-and-mortar Que by Kaarem, is a bustling intersection that we pass by everyday. It’s a converging point of local vendors, avid fitness aunties, regular market goers, passersby and a steady stream of motorbikes, all uniting here in the heart of Bình Thạnh.
In preparation for our favorite time of the year, Tết (Vietnamese Lunar New Year), we ventured out to the local market at Chợ Thị Nghè with German-Vietnamese DJ, Levi Oi—bringing and sharing her good energy!
Filled with punchy reds, yellows and oranges (much luck!), it brought us so much joy spending some time immersed in all the vibrant colors and interacting with the local vendors.
Levi walked away with a bountiful of mandarins, pomelos, chè dessert, and some Tết decor, all while wearing our Song Tu pant in a custom clay swirls silk organza print and our classic Adlay top in a lucky crimson red.
