The oddest place on Nguyễn Trãi

by Joe Buckley @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Walking into Zen Plaza is a very bizarre experience. From the outside, the building just looks like it houses the offices of innumerable boring businesses. Which, as it turns out, is exactly what it does house. Although the bottom couple of floors make some sort of claim to be a shopping mall.

And it’s a claim which the place doesn’t manage to pull off. The first thing I noticed was a sign pointing to the basement. So, like Alice going down the rabbit hole, I went down there. But it certainly didn’t lead to a Wonderland – just a grubby basement and a small Family Mart.

Back upstairs I went. I found some half empty clothes shops. A floor or two more followed, and each had a couple more ghost stores and customer-less restaurants. Then I realised that members of the public can’t go any higher, because that’s when the offices start. So I went back downstairs. And left the warped Wonderland.Which was a relief.

Taking decent photographs was also a challenge here, because there’s so little there. Nguyễn Trãi contains a lot of interesting little stores worth exploring. Zen Plaza, however, isn’t one of them. It’s odd, but not in a good way.

Transition

by noreply@blogger.com (C H I Q E S S ) @ C H I Q E S S

Hey everyone!

Sorry for abandoning my blog. I'm going through a major transition in life now - going to college.
I mean, you'd think having a gap year would make me totally ready for this moment... but no. Not super duper ready laa.. I'm so nervous and excited for everything that comes. It's crazy! Overwhelming.

First of all, I must thank my amazing parents,  yiyi and uncle James for bringing me over here to Amherst after our holiday to New York. Yiyi and uncle James is so hospitable towards my family - not only by providing us lodging and leisure in Cali - but pretty much prepared me A LOT of essentials for me to bring over (no need to fuss over buying bed sheets, towels etc). So much family support omg.

And also, my roommate Jamie. This post is typed using the laptop she lent to me.
The laptop I wanted to get can only reach me by mid-September, so she very kindly saved me multiple trips to the computer labs. And she brought like so much food and a fan for the room. SUPER GRATEFUL omggg :))) She's a local here and like really friendly and great.

Umass is very welcoming to international students with apparently 180 students from over the world (I think? Correct me if the stats are wrong). They actually planned out tonnes of activities to familiarize ourselves with the school and also make friends easily. The diversity of international students is really great; I've met people from China, Japan, Korea, Ireland, Ecuador, Australia, Brazil, etc. Most of the student body is made of locals though - which really gives the uni an all-American feel.

I got to move-in one day earlier than the locals (on 29th August), so that made everything a little less chaotic lol. The environment here is very, very green and Umass puts a great emphasis on being sustainable campus. Being one of the best campus food in USA makes it very dangerous...... I really hope I don't go on the whole "Freshman 15" thingy omg. But it's amazing that most of the food we eat is local produce and herbs used are actually grown on campus lol.

The weather in New England is insanely bi-polar. Like, one minute it's heavy, strong winds with loud thunderstorms, then it goes all scorchingly sunny and HOT. Like, on the second day of orientation I had to shower thrice. I just felt too sticky from walking around and with the weather melting me.

The dorms? I live in a first-year residential hall so everyone here are freshmen. Unfortunately, my dorm is pretty quiet... I hope it doesn't stay this way. Maybe everyone's just new? I don't know lol. The double room is 15'3 x 11" and comes with an adjustable bed and a table desk shelf thing. My hall comes with a laundry room (USD2.50 per wash and USD1.65 per drying cycle sobsss so exp.), a common room, and a kitchen equipped with an oven, microwave and fridge. ( I left a pack of 4 dole peaches in the fridge yesterday and 2 were taken. Hmmm. )

There's so many things that happened over this weekend and it's just so super hard to begin! Ahhhh.

It's just been less than a week coming here and I feel like everything just overwhelms me. The culture, the people AND  the food, the price.....

Speaking of price, I was looking at a package deal from AT&T for getting a mobile phone and the price is around USD80 PER MONTH before tax for a basic plan which includes data (compulsory). Expensive die right???! I'm so not gonna pay that amount of money every month to have a phone. And the thing is that we need to be tied down to 2-years minimum. Anyways, many students here have "family phone plans" with each other so I hope I can find some people to join with..

Today, Jamie, Wendy & I joined the World's Largest Fruit Salad event. It was quite fun!
Quite cool to think that we were part of a Guinness World Record LOL  :) In the evening, head out with new friends from China and my Japanese friend to Amherst town for chinese food and bubble milk tea.
The bubble milk tea was awful for me though (maybe I just ordered the wrong flavor) but the chinese food actually tasted pretty yummy!! But I find that the American chinese food tend to be more greasy and salty lol. What I'm really, really craving right now is a good Nasi Lemak or Assam Laksa :( Sobs.

Yesterday, an adviser informed me that I could get almost two semester worth of credits for my Cambridge A-levels so I am really happy about it. Classes starts tomorrow but I just changed my schedule today. It's not my first option but I'm taking Computer Science to replace my economics class. Hopefully an opening for art classes would come and I could just have CS replaced la. My main classes would be Basic Japanese, Statistics, College Writing and Computer Science (to be changed, hopefully).

My major is in Isenberg but I won't be taking that many core classes till next semester, maybe.
Most of the classes now are Gen.Ed.

Anyways, I have to wake up tomorrow at 8am or earlier so I better sign off now.
First day of college classes!!!

Good night world. :)

A delight from Delhi

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

I was in need of a food delivery & thought I would try out the ordering service of ‘foodpanda’. Clicking through what seemed like endless options, Taj Mahal grabbed my attention. The free delivery, very reasonable prices & the appeal of Indian cuisine meant my decision was made. After opening my account, which was a simple process, my order was placed. As it was my first order I received a confirmation call & was told that my food would arrive in 45 minutes.

An hour later, I received a call & my food had arrived. It was delivered by a lady, smiling & eager to hand me my food. The delivery time really did not matter as the steam filled bag confirmed that it was hot & ready to devour. On opening the individual containers, I was very pleased to see that they had included a ‘salad’, a nice touch that I have not encountered elsewhere.

With regards to the food, I was not disappointed. However, I did find the ‘garlic & cheese’ nan to be lacking in cheese, in fact it was completely absent. The biriyani was perfectly cooked & a contender to meet the best I have ever had. The paneer was also very good, although I found the consistency to be different to other paneers, still tasty but not top notch. The tikka masala I found to be a bit over salted, not unbearably so but it was apparent. However, I was unable to finish it all & once reheated the next day, it all tasted even better, the tikka had become truly sublime.

I will order from Taj Mahal again, without any hesitation, the well-priced menu, wide selection & superb taste make it a must try for any fan of Indian fare.

First week of college

by noreply@blogger.com (C H I Q E S S ) @ C H I Q E S S

The campus may stretch over 1463 acres... but I think... the longer I stay here, the smaller it becomes.
Walks to my classes are really scenic, and I guess it wakes me up. (Provided that I wake up on time!)
There's lots of pretty trees and flowers everywhere, and always cute squirrels scurrying about to be seen. :3

Summer is coming to an end, so I need not endure the blazing hot sun and humid weather.
The wind is getting stronger though.. temperature is dropping.. Fall is here :D
I can't wait till the leaves turn orange. Surely it'll be such a pretty sight!

So. An update.
I decided to drop Computer Science. I was told that it was a "Either you get it - or you don't" kinda class...and I don't get it. Everything on the board was alien to me. Never have I felt so lost in class! It's ironic though, because most of the family members on my mom's side majored in Computer Science.

I'm taking History of Jazz now. It's supposed to fulfill the "diversity" and "art" component of the Gen Ed.s
The textbook + CD costs a bomb though.. USD130++ for renting the book and buying a used CD.
Actually, most textbooks here are insanely expensive. Each subject would probably set you back about 50USD at the very least -  for used books - or it goes up to 200USD ++.

My laptop is arriving in about a week's time! I can't wait to finally post up pictures and stuff.

Toodles!

A Tavern for lamb

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

A Sunday roast is a tradition in the UK & as it had been so long since I had partaken in such a great ritual, I decided to seek out the best for a Sunday roast. The suggestion that kept coming forth was The Tavern in district 7.

As usual, Sunday arrived & off we went to The Tavern for the anticipated roast dinner sensation. On arrival I was informed that today’s roast was lamb for 245,000đ. Without hesitation, my order was placed & my friend ordered the all-day breakfast.

After about 20 minutes 2 large plates crammed with steaming grub arrived at our table. My roast was more than substantial & smelt like a Sunday at home in the UK. The plate was covered with lamb, roast & mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables & a Yorkshire pudding. Mint sauce & gravy were the side-kicks for this dish of splendour.

Not to be out done, the breakfast was also vast with eggs, beans, sausages, hash browns, mushrooms, bacon, toast & butter. At a price of 155,000đ, this is without a shadow of doubt the best I have set eyes on in Asia.

Taste wise, the roast was exactly as it should be with everything properly cooked & served at just the right temperature, a truly pleasing roast that would not be out of place in London’s finest pubs. My only gripe is that the Yorkshire pudding was a rather heavy consistency, this has to be due to the available ingredients in Vietnam. The breakfast was faultless, I sampled some & can vouch for my friends testimonial.

So 4 well earned stars for The Tavern, highly recommended & I shall return in the not too distant future.

Beers & free frames

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Banana bar is in a good location in D.7, it is an unimposing enterprise with a few seats available outside. I have ventured here on a few occasions & it has never been overly crowded. I like this as the main reason I go is to take advantage of the free pool table. It’s not a bad table & serves its function well although there are better tables elsewhere.

Price wise, Banana bar is a bit cheaper than alternatives in the city centre, a Heineken is 35,000đ & Beer Saigon is 30,000đ. It has a good range of beverages including some on draft such as Tiger. There is a happy hour starting at 5.30pm when draft beers go as low as 25,000đ. Snacks are also available & during happy hour these are priced as low as 40,000đ.

With regards to décor, it is fair to say that this place needs sprucing up. It just feels like it is lacking some TLC & a general polish or a coat of paint would certainly raise the whole feel of the establishment. The original owner was certainly on the right track but it seems that the current proprietors did not inherit his passion.
The service is fine, nothing great & no reason to complain. The staff are gracious enough & seemed to enjoy gawking as we played pool. That’s fair enough but I did find it rather invasive, although it meant that the replenishment of drinks was never delayed. If you are in the vicinity of the bar & need a drink with the chance of free pool then Banana bar is the place to go.

A lovely place

by Joe Buckley @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

When I first heard about this market, I was excited to visit – Vườn chuối means ‘banana garden’, and I thought that I’d be entering into a world combining The Secret Garden with banana plantations (minus the labour exploitation).

I was quickly put right however, as friends told me that it’s not a garden or particularly related to bananas. It is, however, a market. Disappointed, I went online to see what other people thought about the market, and was met with a tidal wave of positivity – some people even declared it to be Saigon’s best market. My enthusiasm was renewed, so I set off for a snoop around.

If it isn’t Saigon’s best market, it certainly comes pretty close. Housed in a nice building, the market combines all the best bits about other markets – some busy areas, some quiet areas, some pedestrianized areas, some areas with motorbikes whizzing through, some dark areas, some light areas… the list goes on. The stalls, range from nearly looking like real shops, to nearly looking like wandering street sellers. All this diversity and variety – amazing given the market’s relatively small size - makes visiting the market a really fun experience, made even more so by the jovial and helpful people who work in the market.

The stuff for sale is just as varied – ranging from clocks and gold to raw meat and vegetables, via cloth, bakeries, tinned food, health and beauty, etc. etc. One of places to go when you want to by something, but you’re not quite sure what.

A peaceful park

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Tân Cảng Park is located in Bình Thạnh District, not far from District 2. It is within fairly reach of Thảo Điền Pearl Building so it is an ideal respite for residents living there.

On approaching the park, I was struck firstly by the quietness of the area then by the abundance of bright flowers. The park is not far from a main road but it does not overly suffer from the constant hum of the traffic. It is also bordered by the Saigon River. In addition to the masses of beautiful flowers, there are tennis courts, tables & ‘huts’ that I presume are used for cooking & serving food. They are quite ingenious looking & would not be out of place on a tropical island. The eating area & general layout suggest that this is a popular spot for wedding receptions and the setting for wedding photographs. Indeed the trees & flowers would undoubtedly provide a lovely back drop for a memorable occasion.

The palm trees, greenery & water features all tended to by devoted gardeners make this a peaceful place that is well worth a visit. This is the type of park that is ideal for laying back & diving into a good book, the tranquillity & lovely grounds will surely enable even the most stressed person to unwind.

Due to its location I would not make a special trip, however if passing by, it certainly deserves a stop & a meander. Five stars for Tân Cảng Park & next time I shall return with a book & a picnic.

Another dull shopping mall

by Joe Buckley @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

I’ve basically summed it up already. Parkson is just another dull shopping mall, full of people who have attached a large part of their identity to their consumerism. And people who think that buying lots of stuff makes them happy. And people who like to flash their cash with gaudy and kitschy jewellery, clothes and make-up of questionable taste.

This is where independence comes to die. An overly-clean place full of characterless tiles and characterless shoppers, shopping for characterless brands, such as Marc Jacobs, Lacoste, Calvin Klein, and lots of others with forgettable names that I’d never heard of before. Although if I said that while I was in the place I would probably have been branded a heretic.

There’s not too much fun anyone can have in this place, especially if you’re doing your best to hold back tears as you look around and realise just how hegemonic corporate late capitalism can be.

Despite all this, it’s got a great bowling alley. So if you want to do some ten pin bowling, go there. If you don’t, never ever step food inside the place. Unless, of course, you’re a completely vacuous person who just wants to buy more stuff.

Zoom With A View

by Charles Snowdon @ The 10 latest reviews on HCMC.COM

Zoom has been a haunt of mine for years & has been the venue for many reunions. I have a personal fondness for the place but shall remain impartial for the sake of a beneficial review.

Set on a busy corner near Bùi Viện, Zoom does suffer from road noise & a fairly steady flow of hawkers which can at times become testing. However, the well selected music which is played at an appropriate volume does well to counteract the traffic din. In addition the staff here are always friendly & seem to be very content in their roles as Zoom staff.

When eating here, I usually go for a burger as they are consistently good & from 115,000đ with a free beer, the price is certainly competitive. The menu is broad with everything from Mexican to all day breakfasts. I have never been disappointed with the servings here & am yet to meet anybody that has been.

It is also worth noting that there is a happy hour from 7pm to 10pm when Huda or Saigon Green beers are a mere 10,000đ. After 10pm further offers are available. The owner of Zoom also conducts Vespa tours which has proved to be very popular with tourists visiting Saigon. The appreciation for Vespa is further proven by nostalgic Vespa items adorning the walls.

Zoom gets 4 stars, really I cannot fault any aspect here, it’s a shame that there is no longer outdoor seating but that is something that is certainly beyond the bars control. I recommended a visit for an evening drink or meal whilst enjoying decent music and watching the, at times, frenzied traffic.
