my driver shared to me this facebook post:

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...00044050686106

gist of info:
- very bad food (unlike what is portrayed online by the media)
- quarantined person challenge the officer to eat the food then he will do the same
- cannot have friend from outside buy food pass to security to pass to u
- charge u exorbitant prices for basic goods such as shampoo (those 1-use pack at 15k)

macam in army camp u eat camp food but ur encik and sergeant order macdonald

oic that was very short notice!
whenever vn side report their news, often time it's ambiguous. many restaurant owners don't comply also. according to vnexpress, they said close all establishment from 6pm onwards yesterday. means they have to remain closed for the entire day, not just everyday from 6pm.

Hope everyone is doing good. Anyone still in Saigon?

My company is pulling out of Vietnam for good. Quite sudden but understandable, given the hard times

Miss Vietnam a lot, especially my days shuttling around Thao Dien and Binh Thanh, but no choice I guess.

Hope to return as soon as possible, but it will be purely as a tourist going forward. Maybe the metro will finally be up then

I also want to know.

I only know I always see chin su but I think itís a brand for the lowest common denominator.

Need to wait for Henabi to give his thoughts

There are many brands in Vietnam.

Usually I like Hanh Phuoc, Nam Ngu,

Some of my friends like red boat

It's a really personal preference
