Gosh I love a bargain!

Shopping can be very hit and miss here in Saigon.  In general I find it no where near comparable to places like Bangkok but if you delve deep enough there are some great bargains to be had.  Over the past year I have built up a list of my favourite places that stock things that fit my apparently enormous frame and cover my so called "clown feet". (I am a size 12 in clothes and 39 in shoes....go figure!).  I'm not really into buying the fake stuff and the things at upmarket shopping centres are just so out of my price range.  I have no idea who buys THAT stuff.  Occasionally I come across a shop with the odd bits and pieces that were manufactured here but did not quite make it out of the country come export time.  Usually this information is passed on through the expat grapevine.  I love a bargain and was happy today when I bought these for 450,000VND (about 23 Aussie).  I could tell they were originals but I had never heard of the brand (KG by Kurt Geiger).  I took a punt and googled it when I got home.  The exact shoes can be bought for a mere 120 pounds in England.  What more could a girl ask for!
.....and they ROCK!
