Vietnam’s Hung wins HD Bank chess trophy

QĐND – Tuesday, January 11, 2011, 21:34 (GMT+7)

Vietnam’s Nguyen Mai Hung claimed the top spot at the International Chess Tournament – HD Bank Cup which ended in HCM City on Jan. 9.

The 17-year-old grandmaster grabbed 4.5 points over the nine rounds. By doing so, she equalled the scores of three other rivals but ended up taking the title because of her better sub-index.

Hung, from Bac Giang province, had previously won a gold medal at the National Sports Games which helped her to become Vietnam’s No 1 master.

She needs just one standard to become Vietnam’s fifth – and youngest ever– International Female Grandmaster and is expected to earn this at a training course in Hungary this summer.

It was a great tournament for Vietnam’s women with Hung’s teammates Pham Le Thao Nguyen and Nguyen Thanh An coming second and third at the HD Bank Cup.

On the men’s side, the No 1 seed Le Quang Liem of Vietnam had a disappointing event, earning fourth place overall with 6.5 points, half a point less than event champion Yu Yangyi of China.

Chinese Wen Yang and Filipino Gomez John Paul were the two runners-up on the men’s side of the draw. Liem said he wasn’t too worried about his performance here.

“In general, I had a fairly good tourney although I wasted several chances to improve my position. But this is normal in chess. I do not have to worry about my performance here because results at this tournament don’t influence my Elo rating,” said Liem who ranks 79th in the world.

“In 2011 my target is to reach the rating of 2,700, which is the level for a super International Grandmaster (IGM),” added Liem whose present Elo rating is 2,664.

Other male Vietnamese players failed to make top three. IGM Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son, the former world U10 champion was at fifth. While Nguyen Anh Dung and Dao Thien Hai suffered losses in early round.

Hung wins final silver for Vietnam in 400m

QĐND – Monday, December 20, 2010, 21:26 (GMT+7)

Le Duc Hung added another medal to Vietnam’s tally when he took silver in the men’s 400m on the penultimate day of competition in Guangzhou’s Asian ParaGames on on Dec. 18.

Hung took second place in the T11 class race with a time of 57.87sec. The closely fought contest ended in a photo finish with line honours going to Thailand ‘s Jorchuy Kitsana.

Hung’s teammate Dao Van Cuong, who is the current Asian record holder, finished third in 58.38sec, which was almost three seconds slower than his time of 55.42sec in the previous Games in Qatar .

Cuong set the Asian record of 54.36sec in 2008 at the Beijing Olympics.

Earlier, female duo Kim Van and Hoa Phuong grabbed bronze for Vietnam in the women’s TT6-10 class table tennis. The pair defeated their Filipino rivals 3-2 in the bronze medal play-off match. Hosts China took the champion title after beating the Republic of Korea (RoK) 3-0 in the final.

In six days of competitions, the 57-member Vietnam earned three gold, four silver and 10 bronze medals, leaving them eleventh overall in the rankings.

The national team did not reach the target that they set themselves before departing for Guanzhou. They had aimed to win at least five golds from the six sports that they took part in.

The poor result was partly attributed to cold weather in the city; this prevented several Vietnamese athletes from competing and stopped others from performing at their peak.

Rang bua cake – specialty of Hung Yen

Rang bua cake – specialty of Hung Yen

QĐND – Sunday, July 11, 2010, 21:26 (GMT+7)

Tourists coming to Bat Trang Pottery Village should not miss the chance to enjoy rang bua cake, an indigenous specialty of Phuong Cong Commune, Van Giang District, Hung Yen Province.  

Bat Trang Village is about 15 kilometers from the Red River and next to Phung Cong Commune. Famous for tea flower trees, Phung Cong has been considered the cradle for the trend of growing bonsai trees in Northern Vietnam. 

Today, the commune is also well-known for rang bua cake which is popular for its distinguished flavor and taste. 

Rang bua cake got its name as its shape looks like a rake used for farming. The cake is made of rice soaked in water and grinded in lime water. Then the rice flour will be boiled until half-done and husked one more time so that the flour can become viscous, sticky and leathery. The process of making the dough is very important as it decides the cake’s quality. 

The kernel of the cake includes meat, dried onion and wood-ear mushroom. The dried onion will be fried until it pervades fragrance and then will continue to be fried with small sliced pork together with wood-ear mushroom, pepper and fish sauce. 

The cake will be wrapped by dong (phrynium) leaves to be steamed or boiled in lime water. 

Wrapping cakes also requires carefulness and dexterity. After spreading the dough on the leaf, makers will put the kernel into the center of the flour and then wrap it up in the shape of a rake that swells out in the middle and becomes smaller at the two ends. 

Makers often take dong leaves that grow in alluvium plains along the Red River. Dong leaves are soft, leathery and green. 

Rang bua cake is served with chili sauce, fish sauce or soya sauce, depending on eaters’ taste. The fragrance of rice and onion, the sweetness of pork meat and the crispiness of mushrooms would make the cake unforgettable.

Hung Yen urged to become Vietnam’s hi-tech hub

QĐND – Tuesday, May 11, 2010, 22:56 (GMT+7)

The northern province of Hung Yen should take full advantages of its favourable location and human resources to become the country’s hi-tech and industrial centre.

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung stated this during his visit to the Red River Delta province on May 11.

In addition, the province should develop agriculture and value-added services to develop fast and sustainably in the next five years, the PM told local officials.

In spite of speaking highly of Hung Yen’s achievements in all fields over the past years, Dung still pointed out weaknesses in agricultural and industrial production as well as the environmental pollution issue the province is facing.

Based on the socio-economic development master plan, Hung Yen should design specific plans for its infrastructure, healthcare and education facilities and industrial zones to prevent them from developing uncontrollably, said the PM.

Also, the province needs to bring new technologies into production, added the PM while calling for more investments in the local hi-tech and industrial zones.
