Who are the owners of luxury apartments in District 1? A view of The Grand Manhattan, a luxury apartment project in downtown HCMC The just-launched Grand Manhattan has become the center of splendor due to its luxury apartments being located in downtown HCMC, which are not easy to own. From international investors Elena Goh, a Singaporean real estate investor, is one of the first owners of apartments at The Grand Manhattan, “HCMC is a market my husband has eyed for ages. So we decided to purchase apartments as soon as the project was introduced to the market.

By Robert Bicknell Before I get into the main topic this week, I just want to reminisce about Halloween Golf in New England, where I grew up. Autumn is always special in that part of the US because the fall foliage is simply breathtaking. They say that it’s the only part of the US with the specific combination of minerals in the ground which give the leaves such amazing colour. That’s not to say other parts of the US don’t have fall foliage, but New England has it best. Fall (Autumn) golf usually means sweaters, fewer mosquitoes than normal and the unique smell of autumn leaves in the air. It also means Halloween … Back in the day, we didn’t have lights on the golf course for night golf, but we did have glow sticks to mark the flagsticks and perimeters of the course, and pumpkins carved into Jack O’ Lanterns (you know, scary faces with a candle inside). There also special golf balls made back then which had space for a tiny glow stick inside. … [Read more...] about Ghouls on the golf course
Friday's Tale Who is the real player? Phuong Thao Friday, Dec 2, 2016,20:49 (GMT+7) Who is the real player?Phuong Thao Due to its misleading fish sauce test results, the Vietnam Standard and Consumers Association (Vinastas) last week issued an official apology to consumers, fish sauce producers, distributors and authorities. Nonetheless, the damaging impact of the wrongful survey is so huge that it might take the country’s traditional fish sauce industry a long time to recover. Vinastas chairman Doan Phuong said in a statement that the survey team was confused by the term “arsenic” as defined by the Vietnam Encyclopedia. This is meant to explain why the association did not make clear whether arsenic is in its organic or inorganic form. The survey simply claimed traditionally made fish sauce contained a higher-than-permitted level of arsenic, which was later ascertained as organic. Arsenic is highly toxic in its … [Read more...] about Who is the real player?
Nation Who pays the dear price? The Saigon Times Daily Sunday, Mar 4, 2018,22:37 (GMT+7) Who pays the dear price?The Saigon Times Daily Authorities of the central coast city of Danang have finally come to a painful solution to the persistent pollution caused by two steel factories, Dana Y and Dana Uc, in Hoa Vang District, determining last Friday to shut down the steel mills with immediate effect. Such a bold decision follows angry protests spanning several months by the people, who have suffered from worsening pollution since the steel mills were set up there over ten years ago. At a meeting with representatives of the steel mills and villagers on Friday, Danang City Vice Chairman Ho Ky Minh announced a decision by the city’s Party leadership to cease production at the facilities. This is a hard-fought decision, as there has been much infighting in the past few years over whether to shut down the pollution-causing factories or … [Read more...] about Who pays the dear price?
