Just curious.

Please dun include things like 'take taxi from airport' or 'go money money changer' duh

Mine would be (in this particular order of priority):

1) Food - Must have my favourite Hu Tieu and D5 and my fav Lau at D8. Of course, the holiday would not be complete without beef steak, bun bo hue, and shells. Yummy!

2) Pool - I like someone racking the balls for me. Dun have it in Sgp.

3) Coffee - And I mean coffee shops, not coffee houses. I love those roadside places and can sit there for hours.

4) Discos - America is a must visit.

5) Cho Benh Thanh - I never buy anything there but somehow, it's part of my pilgrimage.

What's yours?

My monthly routine as follow:

1) Hug - a BIG hug and kisses awaiting me outside the airport with hundreds pair of envied eyes looking at us.

2) Countryside - Head towards the bus station and back to province.

3) Home Cooked Food - Late lunch at home prepared by my ba xa.

4) Karaoke - This is where I practise my viet songs.

5) Coopmart - To stock up my ba xa food and household supplies for the month.

Who's next?

My Top 5:

1) Eat Pho Bo at Pasteur! This is a MUST... Singapore's Pho just can't cut it with the ORIGINAL taste!

2) Drinking session at Napoly!!! My fave bar... all my good friends are there and this place feels like a second home to me as the manager and the senior serving staff know me very well!

3) Disco at America... nothing comes close... the best in HCMC!

4) Karaoke with bx and all my good friends in HCMC!

5) Wash hair and massage at Le Anh Xuan! Damn relaxing and cheap way to spend 2 hours...

I haven't been there before but from the address, it should be very very near to SAO cafe at 5 Pham Ngoc Thach. Also walking distant from DIAMOND PLAZA. Very Happy

YES you're right. Last year, I was told, someone bought over this building and going to have a major A&A or re-development plan there.

But, now it is still there. ??????

my top 1 priority after the usual duty (go greet all family and relatives, etc.) is to go to the countryside and spend a good long day just wandering around rice field and garden doing nothing (maybe buy up loads of fruits to eat later)

they don't have that in the big cities in the US
