Hi everyone, I have a medical condition which requires me to have enemas almost daily. Can I buy an enema kit from Hanoi somewhere or should I bring them with me? I’m also curious about a couple things: -What do rubber gloves cost at supermarket -Do Vietnamess use those surgical masks and where can I buy them? -What does rainwear cost at a market? -Are there any international(like US or UK) issues for sale of big magazines for women, for example Cosmopolitan or Marie Claire anywhere?

I did a search and to no avail. I need to buy some decent quality suitcases/luggage. I've been to several places in the Old Quarter (Hang Be street, for example) and the prices were cheap, but so was the quality. The quality was not good enough. Anyone know where I can purchase good a good quality suitcase(s)? One large, and one medium? Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Lately I've found myself being attacked rather vigourously by mosquitos whilst I'm sleeping, which I'm not enjoying. I can't seem to locate the insects responsible (although I'm pretty sure they're mosquitos rather than bed bugs or fleas), and the idea of using a net makes me feel a bit claustrophobic. I heard that there's some kind of effective electronic mosquito deterrent / zapper that one can plug into a power socket - does anyone have details on this product, or know where I could buy on...

Hi, I tried finding this, but did not get any search results on here (though some on google) Any ideas about the price for air purifiers? I saw there is an IQ air showroom in Syrena shopping mall, but can't find any prices online. Any ideas about the price for an air purifier for my bedroom? Thanks a lot.

Does anyone know where I can get mini desktop computers? I need something for the office computers that is less bulky/ugly than the standard atx boxes. Something in the line of this http://vatgia.com/tugia&module=product&view=detail&record_id=4645013 It would be used for surfing, printing, and office documents, so not much power needed, nor a DVD reader.

I was wondering if anybody could recommend a good area/street of Hanoi to buy a used/second-hand motorbike. I would like to broaden my search beyond the classified section of TNH =) Any ideas would be very helpful. Thanks!

Which brand of dehumidifier would people suggest buying? I want something that works very well indeed. In another post, the name "Delongui" was dropped, but that's all I've been able to see - are there any other good brands? Also, for DVD players that will play all regions, which brand would people suggest? And where's the best place to buy it? My housemates recommended cheap & nasty at Metro, however there are quite a few C&Ns to select between. Thanks R

My dumbass question for July: Just had a burfday and want to indulge in a little shopping. Went out and did a mad Made in Vietnam hop-skip across Hanoi, coupled with a stop on Nha Tho/Nha Chung street and Kana. Got a couple of things, but really hoped for more. Xe om driver extra happy at the end of the day when payment time came. Back at home I decided to join the online shoppers, if only to fantasize. Then it hit me - how difficult is it to get Victoria's Secret, Old Navy, or anothe...
