Pamk is wearing her favorite shirt, it’s the clothes she has chosen to wear when she passes, as her daughter explains: “There were some people wanting to buy her clothes, but she did not want to sell them. The clothes she is wearing are her favorite ones. Recently, she was very sick and had to go to the hospital. She picked these clothes to wear if she passed away.”

At 106 years old Pamk can’t communicate much with words, even in Vietnamese it turns out. But she is always smiling just like this, every time we’ve visited her house. And each time, we’ve brought a sandwich to share.
