yeah, you can get coffee and nice massage at the coffee houses...LOL

(actually, a vietnamese friend of mine told me that... with enough money and discretion, apparently you can get a lot more than coffee):rollingeyes:

i have never been to a coffee house there, so i dont know.

i think you have to be vietnamese.. to get the whole experience...lol i actually stumbled into one by accident one day, i was down that way on biz had some time to kill and decided to grab a bite to eat... walked in sat down and this HOT vietnamese lady walks over in the shortest skirt i have ever seen and took my order.... to say the least i put one and one together fairly quickly when a second waitress crossed the room in what can only be descibed as lingerie... i suddenly realized i was theonly white guy in the place and felt a little uncomfortable... i didn't bolt out but i did sudeenly take a liking to the asain soap opera on the set and i never let my eyes wander. well ok they wandered but i didn't stare...
lol i told my wife that night and she lauged so hard at me and she said something in chinese, which i can only guess at... but i think it feel some place between moron and bumpkin

Could this Yi B-Ball or what. I know he's a 7 footer, but he's very thin/slim?
