Hold tight wait till the party’s over
Hold tight We’re in for nasty weather

Thu Thiem area in District 2 is undergoing a massive change and over 12000 households have been relocated according to this source.
“A new urban, financial services and commercial hub connecting the city” according to this one.
“Thu Thiem compensation bogged down” reports another.
