Hi there. Does anyone know if you can get wood shavings or sawdust in Hanoi or the vicinity? We use it as substrate in our cat's toilet box. Where we are now, we just stop by the village lumber mill and they sell us a big sack a shavings for a couple bucks. Way better than clay. Thanks ; )

15-20 years ago, there was an amazing tailor in Hanoi named Van (a woman). Many of the female expats got her to make clothes for them. I have lost her contact details. Does anyone know Van and how to contact her? Thanks!

Does anyone know where I might buy some hair dye, please? Ideally looking for the semi-permanent kind but would settle for permanent if need be. If anyone knows where I can purchase, I would appreciate if they can let me know. Cheers! Lorraine

Hello everyone! This is Sally from China. And I want to find some local fashion garments which focus on coats or dresses in Hanoi for my clients. So are there anyone who can kindly give me a hand to briefly introduce the fashion industry in Hanoi? It will be my grateful to hear from your suggestions. Thanks.

Hello! I will move with my family that includes 8 month old baby to Hanoi this October. Was wondering if babyfood is easily available in shops? Families with babies and infants - maybe you have some other important information that we should know beforehand? Thanks!

Does anybody know where I can buy Ketostix / Uriscan / Atkins closer to Tay Ho than Phuong Mai? Alternatively some spectrum urine analyzing strips may include Ketone level testing. Possibly one that checks for urinary tract infections will also check this. I've tried checking at the pharmacies in Tay Ho but they all direct me to Phuong Mai. Would there be anywhere closer? Full info: You measure your ketone levels in your urine to check to what degree you are burning fat and whether or n...

I was wondering if there any Sym Wolf owners out there that could tell me about the reliability of bike? I plan on doing the usual drive from Ha Noi to Ho Chi Min at the end of the month and I'm worried about parts availability while on the road. I know very basic maintenance for a bike but any real issues I will have to visit a mechanic. I know the standard bike for the trip is the cheap Honda Win but the bike honestly just seems like a pile of broken parts most of the time... and I never...
