I found some really interesting drawings relating to daily life during the Nguyen Dynasty, in Northern Vietnam, 100 years ago.

Because southern are more tanner
And G turning Y, have different dialect and I prefer their dialect and accent

And isnt south kinda have different flag?
Yellow background with red stripes

By the way what you think about my outfit?

The flag you're talking about is the South Vietnamese flag that existed during the 20th century period between 1954-1975, when Vietnam was divided into the communist North and democratic South.

That is opposite to me. I prefer the northern accent more, because it's easier to understand and sounds nicer to me.

Yes your outfit is nice! Though you know white also symbolises death in Vietnamese culture. Lol.

About the flag, Yellow is for skin and Red is for blood ehehe



And about the White

Isn't White on Ao Dai
Isn't that the standard Ao Dai? (Your in white Ao Dai also)
And if wear white so the pants and Khan Dong should be white also?



By the way as I mention

Ao Dai means Long Clothing and defined as Female Clothing
But why guys wearing it also? But with male Khan Dong

Yeah. That's one theory about the flag. Lol. I'm not sure exactly. I know the three stripes represent the three regions of Viet.

Also, white ao dai is usually assosciated with Vietnamese school girls, because it is adopted by some schools as the school uniform. So I wouldn't call it the standard ao dai.
Usually with white ao dai, women don't wear a white khan dong, because it is commonly associated as a uniform worn by school girls.

Males don't wear Ao dai, but they wear an outfit similar called Áo gấm or áo the. Yes it is usually worn with a Khan Dong.
This is cool!
