The Tyranny of Choice and Social Standing

Childhood is opening a fresh bottle of Lily's peanut butter and dipping pan de sal in the 1 cm of oil floating over the actual peanut butter. Mmmm. Pag feeling mo naman maging conyo-burgis for the day, Waitrose o Whole Earth organic ek tapos ask yaya to make the sandwich because you are so gutom na.

Email is so passe. Snail mail will always be cool

Says Hipster Shaun as he receives new boxes of personalised note cards and lined envelopes

Hipster Shaun asks: Do you really want to send love letters via email? It's so baduy. 

But it's not just love letters. We also send hate mail if we hate you enough. We haz dreams of hi-falutin spats ala Marquez v. Llosa.

Awesome Shoes from Saigon!

Hipster Shaun got mail today and was very excited!

It was our made to order shoes! In red patina as we specified!

The Saigon artisans did a pretty good job with Italian calf leather. We iz impressed.
The shoes a perfect! With enough handmade quirks.

Closed channel sole! Yay!

Rounded classic toe.

The heel.

The logo.

The house signature turquoise blue.

Excellent welting.

Just the right toe spring.

We might order more once we see how it breaks in and ages

Hipster Shaun was happy with the 8-week wait.

Vietnamese Balut

Balut is such an aphrodisiac I was so horny after....except that I ate so much that sleep won.

Vietnamese Balut is practically the same as Philippine Balut.

This is balut sa puti.


Seafood at Nguyễn Thượng Hiền

The northwestern stretch of Nguyễn Thượng Hiền is packed with seafood paluto eateries. It's sit amongst locals and the quality is better and the price cheaper than trannylicious Dampa in Manila.

Kuhol, bisukol, shells, etc.

You need to splurge on the cheap and labial oysters.

Protect the Vietnamese Seas from Chinese encroachment!

Saigon Signs

Jo Aurea Imbong and Tito Sotto approve of this message. No glove no love!

The Vietnamese Satur Ocampo wants you to pay attention to the lecture! This will come out in the quiz!

Brutalistic Architecture. We like.

Whatever it is, the Nashman is like a moth to a lamp.

Apparently, this is called Turtle Lake. (Travelling without a guidebook is so hipster)

Full of  young lovers trying to get to first base. Fun times!

This hole in the wall was highly recommended by people in the know.

A great alternative to air-conditioning. Much nomz.


Lunch was in a very conyo burgis restaurant.

Quail's eggs! Reminds me of long bus trips when Halsema was still exciting.

Beef wrapped in Betel leaf! Senator Tito Sotto approves.

Jasmine rice is 12 pesos per kilo in Vietnam! No wonder rice smugglers in the Philippines are raking it in! Get excellent cheap rice in Vietnam, avoid customs duty, sell at high mark-up! Death to rice smugglers!

I hope it's from the Mekong delta and not the Saigon river.

Stroking his huge gourd.
