Good morning. Our first stop on today's Morning Brew is Vietnam, for a little 'Bureau Chief Extra'. It's Ho Chi Minh's birthday today (1890), and who better to fill us in on what's going on there today, than Neil Runcieman. Join him on Facebook live. After 11 our vet Dr. David Gething will be with us for this week's house call. Today we have cats fighting, then not, then fighting again, then being best mates, despite the odd bit of blood between friends. He loves answering your real-time questions, so do get in touch. A couple of months ago we found out about a brilliant competition for children, which is all about writing a script for a video game. It’s called ‘From Player To Page’, and organiser Simon Engerer will be back at 11.40 to tell you how it's all going. At 12.10, a new era in MB relations begins, as for the first time we'll catch up with Chef Neil Tomes, live from his new home... Singapore.
Welcome to Fursday on Morning Brew. After 11, as promised a few weeks ago, multi-award winning floral designer Dr. Solomon Leong will be back with us for the all-important Lunar New Year (top pro) flower advice. Flowers play a huge part in the festivities, and if you want any advice from the best, today is your day. Join Solomon on Facebook live. A little later than usual our MB vet will be with us at 12.10. Dr. David Gething will be here to answer any of your pet questions and talk about care for animals over Lunar New Year. It's nearly firecracker time, and our pets... don't like it. So today we'll discuss anxiety, among other things.
