                By Frank Shyong, Los Angeles Times

                April 12, 2013, 11:56 p.m.



                The gig: David Tran, 68, founded hot sauce company Huy Fong Foods Inc. in Chinatown in 1980 and a few years later introduced Sriracha sauce to the U.S.


                His Sriracha, a version of a hot sauce originating in Si Racha, Thailand, quickly spread through the San Gabriel Valley and eventually the nation. The fiery red concoction in the clear bottle with the distinctive green cap and rooster logo has since gone mainstream: Google “Sriracha” and you’ll find such things as cookbooks, water bottles, iPhone cases and T-shirts.

                Huy Fong Foods, which is still privately owned, sold more than $60 million worth of sauce last year, office manager Donna Lam said.

                Refugee: When North Vietnam’s communists took power in South Vietnam, Tran, a major in the South Vietnamese army, fled with his family to the U.S. After settling in Los Angeles, Tran couldn’t find a job — or a hot sauce to his liking.

                So he made his own by hand in a bucket, bottled it and drove it to customers in a van. He named his company Huy Fong Foods after the Taiwanese freighter that carried him out of Vietnam.

                Packing heat: Early on, one of Tran’s packaging suppliers told him, “Your product is too spicy. How can you sell it?” Add a tomato base, some friends counseled. Sweeten the flavor to pair it better with chicken, others said. But Tran stood firm.

                “Hot sauce must be hot. If you don’t like it hot, use less,” he said. “We don’t make mayonnaise here.”

                Pricing it right: Tran had just one guiding business principle: “Make a rich man’s sauce at a poor man’s price.” In more than two decades of operation, Tran has kept the wholesale price of his sauce constant, but he would not disclose it. A 28-ounce bottle goes for about $4, depending on the retailer.

                “My American dream was never to become a billionaire,” Tran said. “We started this because we like fresh, spicy chili sauce.”

                That means cranking up the chili content of each bottle and making sure each pepper is as hot as possible, Tran said. As the company grew, Huy Fong Foods developed a relationship with a supplier in Ventura County and carefully monitored the entire growing process from seed to harvest.

                Now, each chili is processed within a day of harvesting to ensure peak spiciness.

                Production strained: In 2007, the company oversold its sauces and ran out of the peppers with three months left in the year. Stores marked up their prices and many started to hoard the sauce, Lam said.

                Under immense pressure from customers, Tran considered his possibilities. He could buy supermarket jalapenos, but that left no way to predict the heat of the sauce. Brined peppers were also out of the question — who knew how those had been grown?

                So, Huy Fong Foods went to each of its customers and asked them to wait — and they did. “We didn’t lose any customers,” Lam said.

                Now the company sets a monthly production quota for each sauce. Every bottle of sauce produced already has been sold, Lam said.

                Competition: The popularity of Huy Fong Foods’ Sriracha sauce has spurred many copycats and competitors. Because the sauce is named for the Thai city, the company cannot trademark the name.

                Roland Foods in New York makes its own variety, Sriracha Chili Sauce, in a similarly shaped yellow-capped bottle featuring two dragons instead of a rooster. Frito-Lay is testing a Sriracha-flavored potato chip, and Subway is experimenting with a creamy Sriracha sauce for sandwiches.

                But Tran said he’s not bothered by the fact that others are trying to capitalize on the market his sauce created.

                “We just do our own thing and try to keep the price low,” Tran said.

                Revenue grows about 20% a year even with all the competition. Huy Fong Foods has never spent a dollar on advertising.

                Family business: Tran has no interest in branching out beyond making Sriracha and two other hot sauces, Chili Garlic and Sambal Oelek. All the Sriracha-branded products online are made by others. He spends hours Googling “Sriracha” and chuckling over fans’ creations.

                He’s turned down multiple lucrative offers to sell his company, fearing his vision would be compromised.

                “This company, she is like a loved one to me, like family. Why would I share my loved one with someone else?” Tran said.

                He intends to keep it a family business: His son is the president, and his daughter is vice president.

                He has repeatedly rejected pleas to sell stock in the company and turned down financiers who offer him money to increase production significantly.

                “If our product is still welcomed by the customer, then we will keep growing,” Tran said.

                New quarters: Huy Fong Foods has operated out of two buildings in Rosemead since the late 1980s, but it’s moving to a $40-million, 655,000-square-foot factory and headquarters in Irwindale that could triple its production capacity. The company expects to complete the transition by June.

                “Who knows where the company will go? We just always try to make the best sauce possible,” Tran said.

                Getting personal: Tran and his wife, Ada, live in Arcadia. They have two children.

              41. Our sister publication, NAILS Magazine, is launching a reality TV-inspired nail art contest looking for the NAILS Next Top Nail Artist, and you could be it!

                Aside from uploading three to 10 nail art photos of your best work in the online application, it also requires a three- to four-minute video of yourself answering the question: Why are you NAILS Next Top Nail Artist? That’s where things get interesting. As part of the weekly elimination challenges that require uploading photos of your amazing nail art, some challenges may require you to upload videos or to use various aspects of social media. The great thing about this is you get to design and create in the comfort of your own home/salon without having to spend money on air travel or hotel.

                The top 16 will be chosen on May 31st based on the applications. The top eight will compete in weekly elimination challenges starting on September 14th. The top two finalists will be flown in, airfare (up to $500) and two-night stay paid for by NAILS, to attend ISSE Long Beach 2014 and compete in a live finale! The winner will be announced at the beauty show and will win a $2,000 cash prize.

                This is no ordinary nail art contest. Some dedication and time commitment will be necessary to complete the weekly challenges as well as working knowledge of social media and knowing your way around a camera/video camera. If you’re an awesome artist but don’t know much about technology, don’t let this stop you! The editors and I would be more than happy to help with any video or photographing tips.

                This contest is set for licensed nail techs who are not currently working as an educator for any nail companies. You do qualify if you have been an educator in the past. International nail artists can apply as well!

                I hope this contest will bring forth some great artists. I also hope there will be at least a couple competitors of Vietnamese descent. Although Vietnamese nail techs make up nearly half of the nail industry in the U.S., I can only count a handful of competitors past and present (Trang Nguyen, Joseph Pham, Amy Oung, Robert Nguyen, Vu Nguyen, Trina Ngo, Christine Tran).

                Complete the online application by Apr. 27. If you register by Apr. 12 you will be automatically entered into an early bird raffle.

                Visit for more information and e-mail if you have any questions. Or leave your questions in the comment section and I will find the answers for you.

                Let me know if you’re interested, the Next Top Nail Artist could be you!

                To all my avid readers who have used up countless minutes in reading what I have to say. Seriously, even after 5+ years, I still can’t believe it.

              45. thao: in the past year I started feeling the desire to be an active part of my life, instead of just watching it pass by. I wanted to try to actually be a real live person, rather than just singing songs about them.

              46. “Cesar Cipriano About Tokyo Drift… Lin wanted Sung Kang in the lead. But execs refused to have an Asian in the lead. So that was one of MANY compromises he had to make. Bow bow’s role was supposed to be Asian as well (I remember auditioning for it). Think about it, kid gets bullied, gets in trouble, and is forced to move in with his down and out father in JAPAN. Why is a down and our white guy living in the most expensive country in Asia??? Hollywood.”

  6. k, so finally saw spring breakers and here was review, no spoilers: PROS: well shot, good art department/attention detail, instagram filters/neon colors, ski masks, black light glow in dark stuff, well done. franco was ok, thug accent went in n out. CONS: right away characters are annoying, like watching 4 alexandra wallaces on spring break. right away if anything bad happens to them, you wouldn’t care anyways. cliche having FAITH the religious character. also they should have made point that making fun of religion is same as making fun of spring breakers, both rituals where u ‘lose urself’. but they really didn’t put those 2 together. the characters like is said before u didn’t even care about, so u had no feeling of happiness or sorrow for them. the plot was very simple and comes at like, the last third of the flick and solved really really fast. the ending is really bad, like a baaaad scarface for teenboppers film. the director like judd apatow showed his wife’s bewbs waaay too much for no reason, probably giving wife excuse to give them more screen time. 3rd character didnt even have character. franco was the main character but you didn’t even go too deep into him either. the broll of spring break was same shots over and over. no acting needed for gucci mane since scenes too short. again didn’t feel anything for his character either. it was basically a very long well done vimeo music video, which i believe was his goal, so he did accomplish that. but as a deeper film not really. it had potential tho! ppl who like spring break and clubbing and scarface will like this. if u find spring breakers and girls gone wild annoying then might not be for you lol

      VietNamNet Bridge – They are only 20-23 years old, beautiful, good at martial arts, proficiency in using a variety of guns. That is the portrait of the first 32 female policewomen of the task force of Vietnam, which are being trained in the task force battalion No. 1 of the High Command of Mobile Police in Hanoi.

      “Here, girls are trained like boys. We have to wake up at 5am and go to the drill ground at 7am, run 4km on the morning and in the afternoon. Every morning we run from 800 – 1,000 m around the yard. It is the warm-up exercise for a day of members of the task force. The only difference with boys is our course extended by a half,” said Mai Thu Trang, 21, from Son La province

      4. Director Kim Nguyen’s Movie ‘War Witch’ Nominated for Oscars

        One of the nine films shortlisted for the Oscars’ foreign film category in 2013 is “War Witch” by Kim Nguyen. Nguyen was born and raised in Canada, the French-speaking region. “War Witch” not only won best film at the Tribeca Film Board Film Festival, where 15-year-old Rachel Mwanza also won the Best Actor at the Berlin Film Festival.

        Born to a Vietnamese father and a Canadian mother, Nguyen grew in North America, but the film “War Witch” originated from the story the director read about two twins in Burma, Johnny and Luther, who led the resistance against the military government. Film begins with a baby girl conscripted as a child soldier in Africa. She was 12 years old, and was forced to kill her parents and join the rebels fighting against the government.

        But Komona was not the normal type of soldier. Due to her ability to see ghosts who warned her of enemies’ approaching, she managed to avoid capture and was considered a witch and became the supreme leader of the rebels and given the title War Witch. Fighting along with her is an albino boy named Magician.

        Graham Hughes / THE CANADIAN PRESS

        “I will have a speech ready but I’m scared of jinxing it,” says director Kim Nguyen.

        By: Bruce DeMara Entertainment Reporter, Published on Thu Feb 21 2013Kim Nguyen is a Montreal-based screenwriter and director, born and raised in Amqui, Quebec. His father is Vietnamese and his mother is Quebecoise. Oscar nominee Rebelle (War Witch), which has also been nominated for a Canadian Screen Award, is his fourth feature length film. The script for the film was in the works for 10 years.

        Q: What was special about this project to you?

        A: On a personal level, it was a breakthrough film for me, for my inner barriers mostly. It was about going to the zone and not compromising on authenticity. I feel that this is the closest I’ve gotten to being completely authentic in a film and I’m grateful.

        Q: Have you written your speech and what will it say?

        Photos View gallery

        A: I will have a speech ready but I’m scared of jinxing it. So I’m going to write the speech because everybody’s telling me, ‘You’re going to look like an idiot if you don’t,’ but I’m going to do that a little later. Because people are putting in their votes until the 19th (of February) so I think I’ll write it on the 20th.

        Q: Who are you taking to the Oscars as your guest?

        A: The person who’s going to be sitting beside me is my girlfriend and lovely wife, Catherine Laferriere-Faubert. My daughter’s coming with us as well but she’s not going to be on the red carpet.

        Q: What is your biggest Oscar fear?

        A: To trip on the stairs. Can I give two answers? I have big, thick, ham-like thighs and now the trend is for really, really skinny pants. I feel sometimes that if I bend down to pick up anything, they’ll just rip. So tripping and ripping my pants as a result of the trendy very narrow pants.

      9. Glenn’s romance with Maggie has made him a heartthrob among a certain set — at Comic-Con International in San Diego in July last year, more than one middle-school-age girl nervously professed her affection for Yeun during the panel devoted to the series.

        “It’s flattering and it’s cool,” Yeun said. “It’s also cool to represent that as an Asian male too. I embrace that.”


        improv. Chicago turned out to be an important launching pad, with Yeun finding success at legendary improv comedy hot spot Second City. In October 2009, he moved to Los Angeles to try to make it as an actor.

        Five months later, he landed the role of Glenn, a sweet-natured former pizza delivery driver who is faced with difficult choices and strained loyalties in an unforgiving world — and that’s before he falls in love with a resourceful Southern belle.

        An actor with an improv comedy background might not have been an obvious choice for the role, but “Walking Dead” executive producer Robert Kirkman, who created the popular comic book on which the show is based, said the lightness of Yeun’s spirit does inform the character of the show.

        “His character is essential in keeping [the series] from being the unrelenting depressing thing that it definitely has the potential to be,” he said. “Anything upbeat or uplifting usually comes from that character. I also think that Glenn’s relationship with Maggie is one of the clearest senses of hope that you get from the story.

      11. “It’s a heavy season for everyone,” Yeun said. “But for Glenn, I love that they’re continuing to grow a character. They’re continuing to have him complete his arc, to keep that trajectory. He starts being self-aware and realizing that it’s not just about living for yourself, it’s also about living for the people you love, and when you love somebody, that really opens you up.”

      23. if von teese has implant, how come look so real and more girls dont get same?

        • Caroline: i think the technique is when after surgery, wrap from the top of the breast to push it down so there will be a slight hang of the breasts to give it the natural look. it’s not more expensive to do this. but for some reason, either women who go under the knife don’t know better or their surgeons assume all women want the headlights/basketball look, docs wrap right on top of the boobs not allowing for the natural hang.

      25. Ji Yeo Examines Beauty Via Post Plastic Surgery Photographs from BEAUTIFUL/DECAY MAGAZINE by Ryan De La Hoz. Originally from Seoul, Korea Ji Yeo now resides in Rhode Island. From 2009 – 2012 she worked on an extensive photography project entitled The Beauty in which she documented numerous women in Seoul, Korea immediately after they had undergone plastic surgery. With a sensitive demeanor Yeo highlights an aspect of our current culture that has become increasingly commonplace. Ji explains that “…Beauty is integral to human nature, and people find beauty in the most difficult circumstances, during emotional chaos and disorder, within social taboos and the breaking of such taboos and even in the face of death. My work focuses on ideas of “beauty” in contemporary culture, specifically in how women in our culture come to define and enforce an ideal of beauty on themselves…”

    1. Sundance 2013, Pt. 7: (Re)Connecting the Field”

      The 2013 Sundance Film Festival is over and OUT! And for me and my road-trip partner, we couldn’t have picked a more opportune time to leave. The cloudless, sunny ski resort town we found when we arrived the first weekend gave way to wet, snowy weather the last half of the festival, by which time we were back in L.A. debriefing on our experiences, and for me, dealing with a persistent itching due to the very dry weather we encountered while there. News reports indicated that because of an inversion layer that clouded over Salt Lake City where I was staying the whole time, the air quality was pretty bad (unhealthy) for everyone all around. I’ve been back now, and I’m paying for it with redness on my arms and elbows, the likes of which I haven’t experienced before. And I hate it. A lot.

      Because I wasn’t here a long time (only four screening days in total), my screening schedule was very compressed into a little more than three days, during which I snuck in a mere dozen films. Oh sure, there were the films I made time to see in relationship to their being made by folks of Asian Pacific descent (A RIVER CHANGES COURSE; WHEN I WALK; LINSANITY; ANITA; PIT STOP) and works from different Asian countries that piqued my interest (JISEUL; METRO MANILA; SALMA; WAJMA – AN AFGHAN LOVE STORY; WHAT THEY DON’T TALK ABOUT WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT LOVE). There were other films that I made time for, just to see what non-Asian folks of color are doing (FRUITVALE was a favorite that I came around to late), while I was left to ponder the “what-ifs” of high-profile debuts that just missed the mark for me (Park Chan-wook’s STOKER, sabotaged by a lazy, error-laden screenplay). And for the brief time I ventured up the hill to sneak my way into Slamdance Film Festival offerings, I found myself well-rewarded, if distinctly sight-challenged for the uniquely ghetto-styled screening rooms built out of two motel banquet rooms.

      I was inspired to design this ao dai ;(a traditional Vietnamese dress) when my mother had discussed her need of a new ao dai for the coming Chinese New Year celebration.

      My moda for this project was to get a very eastern/traditional garment and give it a fresh modern westernized make-over!  I’m absolutely in love with this garment, and proud to present it as a sneak peak of my debut couture collection!

      When it came to accessorizing the outfit- I kept a vintage Victorian heirloom feel to give the look character, but made sure to bring it into 2013.

    Endless Prosperity, Eternal Accumulation, 2009
    80 lightjet prints

    Endless Prosperity, Eternal Accumulation is a photographic series of eighty images of hongbao – commonly known in North America as Chinese red envelopes. The Chinese use hongbao to give gifts of money at various festivities and social events. The red envelopes can be traced back to the earlier traditional practice of distributing currency wrapped in red paper as a symbolic gesture of circulating prosperity and fortune.

    The collection of envelops in the photo series are of contemporary hongbao printed by transnational financial corporations from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the European Union, East Asia, and China that are given to Chinese clients. On one level, these corporate hongbao are a crass appropriation of a traditional cultural form for branding and marketing purposes. In a second more sublimated way, the envelopes contain a complex – though often unintentional – juxtaposition of ancient Chinese iconography and script, art historical and colonial era references, Chinoiserie, and corporate logos. These juxtapositions reveal the symbolic aspirations of corporations and the degree to which corporate interests have infiltrated cultural identity.

    Presented as a panorama of eighty individually framed photographs, the work also attempts to register the global scope of both financial institutions and the Chinese diaspora. The assortment of bank logos provide a contemporary atlas of Chinese settlements/markets across the world, while imagery of ships and lions and Chinoiserie patterns allude to the historical encounters between China and the West. The title Endless Prosperity, Eternal Accumulation is a play on the terminology of globalization (Immanuel Wallerstein’s concept of capitalism’s obsession with endless accumulation) and the grandiose literal translations of Chinese names into English (Tian’anmen Square literally meaning: Square of the Gate of Heavenly Peace).

      1. lol viets no like whining. “I misjudged Cao when I encountered him in person in 2009. I was in New Orleans with Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, on assignment for a magazine. At a meeting with local educators and activists, I thought Cao looked bored and impatient, listening to Americans talk about hardship. After all, his refugee family had known a different order of woe in postwar Vietnam, and his father had been tortured in re-education camps. I pegged him as an immigrant bootstrapper who disdained whining. That reading wasn’t entirely wrong, but it missed the impossible idealism that earned him such nasty bruises in the rough and tumble of electoral politics.”

  1. dont know what this says but ysa rules!

    WESTMINSTER (NV) - Họ không hẳn là những người thật sự nổi tiếng, bên cạnh những người nổi tiếng.

    Dược Sĩ Lê Ðình Ysa, người được xem là “linh hồn cho những người trẻ của VAALA”. (Hình: Uyên Việt/Người Việt)

    Họ không hẳn là người bình thường, bên cạnh những người bình thường.

    Họ có một công việc ổn định để làm, xứng đáng với bằng cấp họ dày công học tập. Họ có một gia đình hạnh phúc, xứng đáng với công họ chăm nom, vun vén.

    Nhưng, điều quan trọng họ có mà nhiều người không hề có, đó chính là tấm lòng và công sức họ dành cho việc góp nhặt, gìn giữ, và phổ biến văn hóa, nghệ thuật của cộng đồng Việt Nam nơi đây để cho mọi người, nhất là các cộng đồng bạn, biết đến “diện mạo” của dân tộc Việt là gì.

    Họ, trong bài viết này, là 3 trong số những người phụ nữ gánh vác công việc của Hội Văn Học Nghệ Thuật Việt-Mỹ, VAALA (Vietnamese American Arts and Letters Association).

    “Khi một cộng đồng bạn nhìn vào cộng đồng mình, người ta không để ý nhiều về cái vòng kim cương mình đeo trên tay, hay cái xe mình chạy, mà người ta sẽ xem trình độ văn hóa, nghệ thuật của cộng đồng mình có gì để họ thưởng thức và chiêm ngưỡng.” Lời phát biểu đó của họa sĩ Ann Phong, chủ tịch hội đồng quản trị của VAALA, cũng chính là lý do để những người phụ nữ của VAALA dấn thân từ bao năm qua, một cách tự nguyện.
