1. Re: where are you Land

maz, I almost cry reading your message.

Just got a chance to check the site tonight and wrote about Hoang Anh Quy Nhon to a person who has stayed there. I'm so shy....

We traveled like crazy since 25 Dec. We visited Hanoi, Thai Nguyen, Tuyen Quang, Yen Bai, Lao Cai, Sapa, Hanoi, Ninh Binh, Ha Nam, Hoa Binh, Quang Binh, Quy Nhon and now we are in Saigon. Couldn't believe in my eyes. Many new shops and offices for lease everywhere in Saigon. We looked for some lands on the other side of Saigon River near District 1 and saw one advertised 6,500,000 dongs per square meter.

Lost my mobile phone, $100 cash, my wife's phone charger, the camera connector (so we can send photos to computer). The worst thing is we lost the Marvelon so tonight my wife can't start the new pack and I must find a reason to stay away from her. OMG!!!!!

I miss you guys a lot.

so good to hear from you at last- sounds like you might have been having a good time before this disaster-

how did you lose all that stuff? and what is Marvelon?(I have no idea)

when we were in Saigon last January our guide pointed out some new apartments and gave us the prices- I almost died of shock at the huge prices.

so, are you back home now?

Hi Land,

Good to hear from you!---thought you were sleeping on park bench! Yes, HCMC going ahead in leaps and bounds. I read in Australia, Central Business District land costs rival western cities, and at the rate you quoted , it is!

Good to have you back!---no dribbling on keyboard allowed when you tell us a funny tale or two.

are you serious you don't know? The context is very CLEAR. You don' t need to be familiar with the brand, can tell right away.

Land, I just called my younger sister, pharmacist, about your dilema. She says, "Start a new pack straight away if the pills you missed were in the 3rd week of your packet. If the pills you missed were in the 1st week of your packet, then rent a second room".

Boy, I did not know that you are still under age. Glad I'm getting older, no packet needed. It's too hot in Saigon, why would not you stay away from her to get some fresh air :-)

Lost 100US? How? Where's money belt?

Plover, I think one of the hotels we stayed was worse than the park bench ha ha ha…. I made a mistake. That land price is among the lowest which is farther away. The ones nearer to District 1 on the other side of river is 18-20 million dongs per sq. meter.

Maz, are you serious you don’t know the Marvelon birth control pill?

Book, for the money safety, I remember well your tip of the secret pocket but my wife didn’t. She wore her comfi pants to go down to the Thai Duong Hotel restaurant in Thai Nguyen Province for dinner. That was the first case she left her pants with money in the hotel room. The second time she left it in the Anh Tuan Hotel room again in Sapa. After a short trip to Ban Ho, she came back to the room and didn’t find $100. So she can’t know where she lost it. We learned.

Thanks for the tip. My wife was supposed to take the first pill of the new pack on Sunday night but found out that night that the pack is no longer with her. So she bought another pack in Saigon and ate it yesterday morning, considering it was a missed pill. The instruction says if a pill is missed and she eats it within 12 hours compared with the normal eating time, she is safe. The problem is it is the first pill so whether the condition applied is a secret to me.

But with the same Marvelon packaged in Thailand, product is made in Holland, in Thai instruction page, they make it very complicated.

Book, do you know how she keeps her money after the lost?

hahahaha- I really thought it must be a type of suitcase brand- when land said he must stay away from her, I imagined because she is so cranky and she might yell at him LOL-

Marvelon may not be available in Australia, but anyway, I left all those worries behind me many years ago - still had no idea until I did a google search - LOL

Alicie, you're so wonderful. That's what the bras are for after she lost $100. She inserted each side a few pcs of $100 and used needle and thread to seal bother sides :-) She then wore the bras everyday ha ha ha....
