It was a Sunday morning in June when Nguyen Trong Hung, 32, arrived at Singapore’s Changi Airport and started his 12-hour shift by cleaning the airport. "This job helps me earn around US$1,400 per month, less than my salary before this pandemic, but I cannot be demanding amid this ordeal," he says. He used to work as a cook at a Chinese restaurant before Covid took away his livelihood. "After a month of tough measures to contain a coronavirus outbreak my friends earn next to nothing.

Fugu is not commonly consumed in many other countries, but Vũ Thùy Linh, a Vietnamese researcher at a university near Tokyo, hopes to cultivate the culinary art of the pufferfish in her Southeast Asian nation to create a bridge between the two countries.
