I Love Ngoc Lan

Thuy and Ngoc Lan

| iLoveNgocLan

Found an article from Boat People talks about Thuy and Ngoc Lan. Not sure if the article talks about our Ngoc Lan or someone else with the same name. What do you think?

Added a set of photos and Gap Nhau. Enjoy!


  1. Definitely not our Ngoc Lan. Per the last sentence of the article:
    “When they left Vietnam Ngoc Lan was thirteen years old and Thuy was eleven.” Our Ngoc Lan,when she left Vietnam, was at least 22-year old.

  2. I’ve read that sometime in the past. No, I don’t think it’s about “Ngoc Lan”.

  3. Oh ok, I just skimmed through it quickly and didn’t think so either.

  4. I’m the author of “Thuy and Ngoc Lan.” The Ngoc Lan of the story did not survive the escape.(re-read the story) The survivor, Thuy, would be about 29-years-old by now. “Project Ngoc,” at the University of California, Irvine, was founded in response to the Thuy and Ngoc Lan incident.
