Considered as one of the most deserving winners in Vietnamese pageant history, Miss World Vietnamese 2007, Ngo Phuong Lan (or as I’d like to call her–the question killer) has flown off the press’ radars for quite the extensive time period. But look who’s back!

In an update from our tipper, it appears that Ngo has capitalized her smarts for a recent incursion into the  realm of business. Her new lounge, called SandBox, aims to dispatch a fair blend of wine, music, arts and warm company. Located in Hanoi (12 Phan Huy Ich, Ba Dinh), Sandbox is raised from an ancient French colonial villa with spacing effectively used to yield a lax and wholesome environment. In addition to themed evenings (each Friday being a Romance Friday), the lounge also features  matched decor and live bands while also encouraging aspiring musicians,  photographers, and artists to showcase their talents.

Sounds like my kinda place.
