The Red Thread of Fate

The Red Thread of Fate, also known as the Red Thread of Predestined Destiny, is known as the mystical tool of Nguyet Lao (Mr. To, Mrs. Nguyet).

It is often said that the Red Thread wrapped around the fingers of people who are supposed to be connected will meet in a certain situation because they are “true love of each other”.

Inspired by the folk beliefs of Ong To and Ba Nguyet – the Vietnamese Gods of Love, Nguyet Lao Garden will be the point connecting people and space with the Love Bridge.


The Balcony and Timeless Love Story

Romeo and Juliet was inspired by the Arthur Brooke poem, The Tragicall Historye of Romeus and Juliet, which was published in 1562.

Brooke’s version was inspired by older works by Italian writers, including Luigi de Porto and Matteo Bandello, who told the story of Romeo and Giuletta and the deadly feud between the families Montecchi and Capelletti.

“After the ball, Romeo sneaks into the Capulet courtyard and overhears Juliet on her balcony vowing her love to him in spite of her family’s hatre for his family.

Romeo makes himself known to her and they agree to be married”.

That balcony has become a symbol of intense love beyond all time, overcoming all prejudices

The balcony belongs to the aptly named La Casa di Giulietta, or House of Juliet, the former home of the Cappello family and the inspiration for the Capulets.

Love-struck couples linger in the garden, pose for pictures on the balcony, or attach letters filled with sweet nothings to the walls.
