Oh.... Techadd....oh.... thank u so much for the ans. Dun worry I'm straight!!

Do you happen to know of any 2nd hand old watch shop in HCMC? I'm into collecting old watches... broken or working dun matter
if you want to look for old watches, go to Ben Thanh Market first. Opposite Ben Thanh Market, there is a bus station, behind that station, there is a street. There are a lot of sellers selling old/damaged/new watches along the pavement of that street. You can also find watches at the next street parallel to that street.

Beware of fake watches when you buy there.

Hope that helps.

has any1 eaten here b4?

they say the queues after 6 is ridiculous....does it really live up to its reputation?
As I wrote in one of my posts, if you don't have time and don't know which place to go for each special vietnamese meal, Ngon Restaurant is your choice. You can enjoy there all dishes originated from North to South of Vietnam. One place for all dishes. Price there is ok. I always have lunch there whenever I come back to Vietnam.

Christmas is a good time to visit HCMC.

They use two pin plug only, round type.

You can boil tap water (before consume). Don't drink directly.

Hi Bros, I have an air ticket to Saigon (HCMC) for sale. Price revised and can fly after 2009. Have a look if interested.
