    Dear Lira Liza Maleon,
    I am on the “phumyhungneighbors” list. Your above web-site is a great idea. I am living in Saigon since 3 years. I am French, and father of 2 boys (9 and 5 years old). I have compiled number of informations about “what to do with kids” inside and outside of this huge city. Those information need a regular update (last update was 1 year ago) to maintain accuracy. But I am happy to share it with you (word document) if you want to post it.

    Just let me know if you are interested to “post” those information.
    Take care, and Best Regards.

    Hi, we’ve been searching for unbelievably 1 year, for a new apartment in phu my hung, district 7. We need a very spacious 3 bedroom – 4 bedroom apartment, budget no more than 1,300usd/month, better if unfurnished, we have everything we need. We have seen nearly every apartment, but estate agencies maybe aren’t taking us to the right places. We prefer panorama, my phat, my duc, garden court, my phuc. If anyone knows, please contact me on 0902271830 by SMS with details of apartment first.
    Thanks so much.

  3. Lyra says:

    Hi Amaryska. I thought you found one already! Will try to shake some info from people.

    Your website is great. As we are planning to set up very soon in Saigon with my girlfriend, we find a lot of good information. One thing do you have mail or contact of the fitness club Crescent Wellness? I am a sport trainer and very curious about how I could do sport there?
    Thanks a lot,

    Hello there!
    My wife and I (both Filipino) are currently working here in Vietnam and we are expecting a newborn child this March. Does our child is citizenship pure Filipino?

  9. Lyra says:

    Hi Rey! Yes your child is pure Filipino by blood and citizenship. Anyway, the Vietnamese don’t give citizenship to babies of foreign descent unless one of their parents is Vietnamese.
