* That's like soooo Saigon

Ye Hanoi based folk probably know of the New Hanoian website (the community produced expat guide) and now TPHCM-based people can start to write up every restaurant, cafe, bar and gin-joint in the south with the recently launched So Saigon -- exactly the same format, you go somewhere, you like it, or don't like it, or wanna say it's bình thường thôi, then you simply sign up and review it. The site's just started and needs all the reviews it can get it's digital-hands on to get going.

And sure isn't it all happening down there in Sunny Saigon? It reminds us of Manhattan in the 80s when we Pittstop staffers were all living on Wall street making tonnes of cash and spending it all like Billio.

Those were the days. Still have the suit with shoulder pads to prove it all happened.

Hey there, thanks for the shoutout. We're really relying on Saigon folks to make so-saigon.xemzi.com as good a resource as The New Hanoian.

PS: you linked so-saigon.xemzi.com as "The New Hanoian" - should be newhanoian.xemzi.com or www.newhanoian.com

Oops. Corrected that Tom. Not sure if many Saigonese read the blog but I know of at least one!

Genki-Kiwi -- get reviewing down there
