Aside from the fact that he’s worth over $100 million dollars, Hong is exactly the kind of person you’d imagine when you think of a middle-aged Vietnamese guy in Southern California - stern yet kind, ethnically Asian yet politically white. Hong finds out about his winning lotto ticket over steaming stone bowls of bibimbap at a Korean restaurant in Buena Park. Hong’s two daughters, Sara and Leanne, and his wife Rachel are too busy eating to notice Hong’s slack jawed expression when he sees the winning numbers for that week’s lotto on the restaurant’s television screen.
Enchanting and supremely fulfilling story.
Love the way your stories start and end in completely different places. The transitions start slowly and before you know it there you are.
