Food, clothing, and shelter are the most important things anyone can ever hope to have. Now before I go into a soliloquy on the essential elements in happy living, let’s nip it in the bud and just talk shop.
Yup. Shopping for food.
Man can’t live on bread alone — in Vietnam, banh mi and finding the best supermarket or grocery is on top of the list of any person. For a foreigner that’s used to the common brands in their country might find it difficult to find the same brands but believe me, you’ll get by. If all else fails, you can always raid the gourmet shops.
Those living in and out of District 7 will be happy to note that Lotte Mart at Bac Nam Road in D7 offers free shuttle service. There are two routes: Lotte Mart to Cantavil (D2) and Lotte Mart to Phu My Hung (D7). You won’t miss it because it’s a red bus amidst the sea of motorbikes. I’m sharing this here because I have searched the world wide web extensively and couldn’t get a link to the shuttle schedule.

Or refer to Barijoe’s site where he made the schedule easier to view. 🙂 Thanks Barijoe for translating!
[as of February 2011, there are now 2 Lotte Marts: one in D7 and another in D11]
