    On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain.

    Stretching from the city centre, past Sat market and ending at Tam Ky dam, Tam Bac Lake is situated between Hong Bang and Le Chan districts. The lake previously belonged to An Bien commune and currently to the central strip of the city. This lake covers an area of approximately 50,000 m2 and is 3m in depth with tidal system.

    In 1905, the French widened and straightened Liem Khe rivulet in An Bien commune in order to create a boundary canal. In 1925 they filled the canal leaving a short section of it at Tam Ky T-junction called Bonnal puddle. The puddle joined Tam Bac River and was known as Lap River ( or Tam Bac Lake) by Hai Phong people.

    In fact, the lake’s name as Tam Bac was not accurately named, because Tam Bac (originally named Tram Bac) used to be the river adjoining the previous Lap ( originally was Liem Khe Rivulet which was enlarged into a canal). In 1985 the lake was greatly changed, a dam was built to bank up Tam Bac river so that the two roads, Tran Nguyen Han and Quang Trung could be joined. As a result of that, the lake was narrowed as we can see today.

    Since the lakebed was dredged in 1997, the hygienic condition on its two banks has remarkably been improved. This lake was made totally clean, clear and green with flamboyant tree-lined lake sides where tourists can have relaxing and cool walks.

  • What is in a name?

    On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.”

  • Photographers, Take Note!

    But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure
