New Aussie just landed in HCMC a couple of days ago. I'm trying to fit out my new place in Tanh Binh district and I'm already lost as to where to find a few of the essentials for home:
* Vegemite! Please help -- I heard it was available in Nha Trang but someone in Saigon must stock it.
* Borax. Commonly sold in Australia, every supermarket has it in the laundry department but everyone uses it for killing ants and cockroaches, not for laundry purposes. Welding supply shops also tend to carry it back home. Any ideas as to where to get it in Saigon?
* A decent butcher -- where can I get chicken breasts, decent quality beef, etc? I've looked at the supermarkets and nothing on the meat shelves there is recognisable as anything I'd pay actual money for.
That's about it so far, I'm sure I'll come up with a few items to add to the list. I have been to Saigon a dozen or more times in the past but only just this trip have I actually started to kit out a house -- previously I've been staying in hotels and backpackers and the such like. Any other tips from Aussies here would be useful.
