"Vợ mượn"/"The Borrowed Wife": Another Pinoy Teleserye on Vietnam TodayTV

I love food and I love Vietnamese cuisine. I am the type who travel far just to get a fix with a craving, like upon hearing that the original Bicol Express originated from there, I went to Legazpi just to get the real taste of the genuine Gulay na Lada then returned to Manila immediately afterwards (I've seen Mayon before, I was only thinking of the original Bicol Express that time).

Vietnam is near. As practically every travel book recommends it, I fear I might suddenly get the craving to try the streetfood one afternoon then return home immediately after I get my fill. So I'm actually learning colloquial Vietnamese now. It might come handy navigating the food stalls in the streets of Saigon (District 1 & 3 of Ho Chi Minh City). It will be my second Asian foreign  language after Malay (I can manage both Bahasa Malaysia & Bahasa Indonesia, which are easy to learn for a Filipino especially if you speak Tagalog, Cebuano, Ilonggo & Ilocano like me: a Malay word might not be found in Tagalog or Cebuano but it could be found in Ilocano, or it could be found in Cebuano but not found in Tagalog & the rest, etc.).

I love watching Vietnamese-dubbed teleseryes. For now obvious reasons.

There are two Pinoy teleseryes now being shown on Vietnam TodayTV. Basahang Ginto (which we featured  before) & this one, The Borrowed Wife.
