This is a random listing of information that I come across as I travel around. This will at some point become outdated, and will lack cohesion. The only point is to have that bit of information you are looking for and can't find.

Dung Tailors (Tailor Dung) Ho Chi Minh City

Posted on 11 February 2017 by Tak

Below is the information as of the last time I had it for Dung Tailors in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Address: 221 Le Thanh Ton, District 1

Telephone Numbers: 3829 6778, 3824 5676
Mobile Number: 0903 954546
Email is dungtailor at hcm.vnn.vn

Work is somewhat commensurate with the price. Deadlines often missed. English is spoken by the main woman is charge which makes things simpler. You can choose your fabric at the store next door and have them work together to make what you need. I’ve had pieces with bad sewing jobs and pieces that came out great. I write about Dung Tailors and a couple others spots in my Vietnam guide

Delta T17T vs T17 Vero Shower Trim Difference

Posted on 16 February 2016 by Tak

What is the difference between the Delta T17T053 and Delta T17053 Shower Trim?

For starters, the T17T053 is thermostatic and the T17053 is pressure-balanced. Next, the T17T is more expensive. You may do your research and feel that pressure-balanced is fine for your needs (which it probably is) and that you’d rather save the money. This post is not so much a review as it is an informational post (and I know, it has nothing to do with travel) because this information is not out there (and the information that is confuses the two parts, etc).

How To: Take the Express Des Iles Ferry

Posted on 13 January 2016 by Tak

This post is for describing how to take the Express Des Iles ferry from Guadeloupe to Dominica and Martinique.

I highly recommend booking the ticket online at http://www.express-des-iles.com/ as the ticket counters can move very slowly. You will need to input your passport info but you might need to guess as to the translation. The English version of site does not work for the booking form. However, it seems you only need to get the major details correct. Read More →

Chaung Tha Hotels – Price List (Myanmar)

Posted on 17 May 2015 by Tak

These prices are for Chaung Tha Hotels and Guesthouses from the beginning of 2015 (High Season). Some of these prices are negotiations down from the asking price. In Chaung Tha, you should always negotiate the price because, as in most of Myanmar, they keep asking higher and higher prices to see if people will pay them. Negotiating and walking away if need be is the only way to keep this price explosion in check. You aren’t getting a lot for your money when compared to other countries in Southeast Asia. Read More →

Hirbawi Textile – Palestine Kaffiyeh Headscarf

Posted on 15 May 2015 by Tak

I rode out to Hebron and hunted down Hirbawi Textiles – great place to visit. It is the last Palestine manufacturer of the traditional headscarfs. If you are in the market downtown, there are a couple vendors selling these. However, the other vendors are selling Chinese knock-offs which are one of the reasons why all the local factories went under. Read More →
