Intriguing, on going story on Uranium in Vietnam beginning from the War.

1. Strange story.

In 1996 I met an old British/Australian man (80+ years old at that time) in Melbourne. He asked me if I knew what caused American involvement in Vietnam war.
My conventional answers were given, but he said they are all incorrect. He said the real reason was Uranium deposits in Vietnam! I replied that I had heard of that rumour since 1960 in Vietnam but there was little reason to trust it and I thought that it was only from an anti-American misinformation campaign.

He then said that he was working for BP after WW2 and was the man in charge of prospecting for Uranium in Vietnam. He said that because of Uranium, the French got American to join their side in the French Colonial war. He said that his mission after WW2 in Vietnam was called off when he received a telegram saying that the mission was terminated because of the discovery of a huge deposit of Uranium in Australia.

I politely conversed with him but thought that he was only a self-important man trying to make a fool out of me. That night, I still used the internet to make independent verification of the details of his story. I was taken aback as things fall into places to confirm every detail of his story:

1. British Petroleum had been in the business of prospecting for Uranium.

2. The year of his termination of the mission does fit in nicely with the official declaration of the discovery of huge Uranium deposits in Australia.

3. In 1990 to 1992, the Department of Natural Resources of Socialist Republic of Vietnam declared that Vietnam has a HUGE Uranium deposit. They are low grade, concentrating in many areas, including in Nong Son (where low grade coal had been mined by Republic of (South) Vietnam. The Socialist Republic of Vietnam had later commissioned a Canadian Uranium mining company to assess the ore deposits.

2. Intriguing events.

The story fits well with:

1. The declaration in 1990 (from 1990 to 1994, the exact date I can’t remember) by SRV that it has huge amount of Uranium ore.

2. Currently there is a non-transparent, military styled, uneconomical mining of (rumored to be) BLACK bauxite (bauxite is usually yellow brown or tan, China has been buying bauxite from Australia at dirt cheap price) by Chinese operator in Lâm Đồng area in VN (going through the purpose built Kê Gà sea port and its purpose built routes) and the Vietnamese government currently does not have any mention of its past declaration of huge Uranium deposits. (There may be a secret cooperation between USA and China to quietly take all Uranium deposits out of Vietnam without any approval by Vietnamese people, who are the ultimate owners of territorial minerals).

3. American have brought into Vietnam many Geiger counters prior to 1974. What are they for unless they are used for prospecting or for picking up equipment associated with Nuclear weapon?

4. Before the Vietnam war ended on 30th April 1975. American personals had already removed their Uranium bars at the Research Nuclear Reactor in Dalat built by USA (for its former ally Republic of Vietnam, as an example of unreserved commitment to the future of RVN). However, USA tried its best to persuade SRV to have permission for coming back to Dalat to look for any misplaced Uranium bars ! How could it happen and who had been responsible for such a sloppy accounting procedures of Uranium bars? Anyway, the SRV agreed to let USA come back to the reactor to search for their misplaced Uranium bars but nothing was found. As a result of that cooperation, there was relaxation on the embargo by the US against SRV (The real reason may be to check if SRV has fed any of its own Uranium into the Nuclear Reactor).

5. Later on, there was a rare cooperation in Vietnam between USA and Russia to convert the Dalat Nuclear Reactor into a new type using lower-enriched Uranium and to arrange for a shipment of some spent Uranium out of Vietnam. As a result of that cooperation, Vietnam was given a time limited committee position on a UN Nuclear Commission and the US embargo against SRV was dismantled.

6. USA has shown the World that it could fabricate a cause for war against any middle country such as Iraq and to attack. SRV had done well to comply with the requests from USA.

7. There is currently an unusual freezing of relationship between two comrade in arms Socialist Republic of Vietnam and North Korea. It was NK who sent its best MIG fighter ace pilots to help North VN during the Vietnam war, some of its fighters actually had Died In Action. Their remains had been placed in a Temple for North Korean Heroic Fighters in North Vietnam but later quietly repatriated to NK around the year 2000. In contrast with China, NK had asked for neither territory nor payments for joining NVN in the war. There was no reason for such a freeze in the relation between two communist comrade countries. Is this unsual freeze part of an international plan to separate a Nuclear Capable State North Korea from an Uranium rich State Socialist Republic of VN?

3. Conclusion.

This is an unusual story but it brings up many hypotheses which can explain otherwise incomprehensible events.

Soup of Parsnips and Tomatoes (Canh củ cải trẳng).

Soup of Parsnips and Tomatoes (Canh củ cải trẳng).

(Blog No.115).

#Soup, #parsnip soup,, #Parsnip, #tomatoes, #Canh Cu Cai Trang, #MSG,

Soup of Parsnips and Tomatoes (Canh củ cải trẳng).

This is a very simple, non-odoured, low priced soup dish that is also the base for making a variety of delicious, healthy Vietnamese and Cantonese dishes such as soup of pork legs (canh đùi heo), soup of pork ribs (canh sườn heo), soup of minced pork wrapped in Chinese cabbage and chives (canh cải Bẳc thảo dồn thịt), or soup of minced pork stuffed in chive strung tofu, (canh đậu hủ dồn thịt), soup of balls of minced fish (canh cá vò viên), soup of balls of smashed beef (thĩt bò vò viên), Cantonese rice noodle soup (Hủ tiểu).

Non-odored dish means a dish that does not make your body have its aroma (smell) after eating.

(Parsnip=Củ cải trẳng, Chinese cabbage= Cải Bẳc (Northern) thảo (vegetable); Chives= Hẹ).
1. Preparation

Chop a whole parsnip into small pieces of about 10g in weight each and boil it in a glass or ceramic cook pot until it becomes soft. Slice tomatoes into one eighth pieces and add to the broth and boils until tomato pieces also becomes soft as in the photo.

You may add some chopped shallots, chopped spring onions and ground pepper to suite your taste.

The soup is ready for serving.

NOTE:

Glass or ceramic cook pots do not interfere with the taste of the soup.
2. Ingredients

a. Parsnip plant (Pastinaca sativa) is a root vegetable closely related to the carrotand parsley.

Parsnips are sold in supermarket as tubers. They look like washed carrots but they are white, about 20cm to 40cm long. Current price is $4.00 AUD ($3 USD) per Kg.

Parsnip tubers had been used as a sweetener in Europe until replaced by beetroot and sugar-canes. They are rich in vitamins (C, E, B1, B6, B3, B5) and mineral metals (K, P, Mg, Ca, Na).

Parsnips repel aphids, Western organic planters plant them among cabbage plants to repel aphids, using no insecticide but parsnips’ natural odour.

Oriental (Eastern) herbalists claim that parsnips neutralize many toxic substances as well as render ineffective (proof ?) oriental oral medications. Herbalists’ wisdom advises against eating any parsnip together with pears, apple, grapes, medicines, ginseng, carrots (Rigorous proofs to claims are still not available).

b. Tomatoes are sold in supermarkets. Current price is $3.00 AUD ($2 USD) per Kg.

c. Shallots (Hành hương). Leeks (Hành Tây).

d. Spring onion (hành lá). Chives (Hẹ).

CAUTION:

Touching parsnip then exposure of the skin to sunlight may cause skin rash.

While the root of the parsnip is edible, the shoots and leaves of the plant have toxic sap containing furanocoumarins [1].

WARNINGS:

Mono-sodium glutamate (MSG) imitates the taste of this soup. Unprofessional cooks using non-authentic recipes may put in a lot of mono-sodium glutamate to fool customers. Traditional, authentic recipes have no such modern ingredient. Soup with MSG is watery, with few parsnips and few tomatoes.

In the short term, mono-sodium glutamate may cause extreme headache, throat congestion, prolong thirst and swelling of your ankles and feet. Do NOT eat any non-authentic dish prepared with such ingredient.
3. Contraindications [3].

Parsnips are not to be eaten while taking some herbal medications.

Parsnips are not to be eaten with [3, 4, 5, 6, 7]:

a. Carrots. Carrots have many enzymes that quickly destroy any beneficial vitamin C from parsnips [3,4].

b. Ginseng. [3].

c. Pears, apples, grapes. Cyanogenic acid from parsnip may react (proof ?) with some compounds of in these fruits [3,4] to produce toxic chemicals. Vietnamese herbalists and media [3,4,5,6,7] claimed that prolonged consumption of these toxic chemicals can even cause (proof ?) lumps on the necks.

d. “Wood ears” mushrooms (Auricularia auricula-judae). Eaters would have skin rash [4].

4. Where to find it?

It is an inexpensive, common favorite dish (costing 10000VND =$0:50 US in 2017) in Vietnam (in Saigon).

I don’t know how much it would cost in a Vietnamese restaurant outside Vietnam.

Mass immigration causes the death spiral for Western culture

Mass immigration causes the death spiral for Western culture

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No.114).

#Mass Immigration, #death spiral, #Western Culture,

Mass immigration causes the death spiral for Western culture.

1. Mass Immigration bring in features of unsuccessful cultures.

People immigrate into rich countries to leave behind their bad countries. Mass immigration is the movement of many people into a host country such that immigrant population overtakes the long established population.

We have to admit that there are good cultures and bad cultures. Good cultures make their nations prosper, bad cultures impoverish their nations.

There are a number of undeniably true quotes

1. Every country has the government it deserves (Toute nation a le gouvernement qu’elle mérite) by Joseph de Maistre. (Correspondance diplomatique, tome 2. Paris : Michel Lévy frères libraires éditeurs, 1860, p.196.) [3]

and

2. A culture can rise no higher than the moral position of its women. This quote is attributed to the late Mary McLeod Bethune.

The problem is that mass immigration brings people from unsuccessful countries (the failures of these people were mostly caused by their own bad cultures and they deserve to have their bad governments) into successful countries (whose successes were mostly propelled by their good cultures). The upsetting feature of mass immigration is that the bad cultures from poor countries are not required to be left behind by the immigrants but are allowed to be imported into the successful countries under the name of “diversity”.

Leftists worship diversity while many original populations such as in Hungary, Czech, Slovakia protested against it [2].

Worse than that, mass immigrants may talk among themselves that the host country owe them something and has a duty to accept them and provide for them!

Again, we have to learn from Joseph de Maistre:

3. False opinions are like false money, struck first of all by guilty men and thereafter circulated by honest people who perpetuate the crime without knowing what they are doing (Joseph de Maistre) [3].

2. Social examples.

a. Australia was a rich country with self-respecting people until 1970’s. There were very few people claiming social welfare benefits. Around 1978, the Federal Government had to run TV add telling people to apply for social benefits if they entered hardship and entitled to the benefits.

After mass immigration programs, the population increased from around 10 million in 1975 to 22 millions in 2017. However, there are now problems with a high proportion of people claiming benefits they are not entitled to. Fraudulent claims on Social Welfare benefits is a current problem for Australia [1].

b. There are many local governments in Australia. Those local governments with very small number of immigrants retains most of their original features and keep on operating efficiently while local governments with high proportion of immigrants imported the questionable features of foreign countries.

Footscray Council of Victoria has high proportion of immigrants, it now has sky high annual Council rates relative to the useful services it provides and most of its actions are now questionable.

The following is some of my first hand observation of its operation:

Maribyrnong (Footscray) Council has non-transparent hire out of “student study rooms” in its Library (in 2005).

Maribyrnong (Footscray) Councilors had made junk oversea trips to Vietnam (using tax money collected by the Council) to propose its (unsuccessful) sisterhood to Ho-Chi-Minh City in Vietnam in 1995 !

Maribyrnong Council just keep re-planting and cutting down trees on kerb sides around its Library. Trees have no chance to reach maturity to be useful and tax money is wasted.

Maribyrnong required K-mart Supermarket to build for it a multilevel car-park to avoid car parking problems. Few years later, in 2003, it changed the car parks into block of apartments, creating even worse parking problem.

Maribyrnong Council constantly remodels and digs up its shopping Mall (Nicholson St) disrupting business and wasting tax money.

3. The death spiral of Western culture.

a. Leftists propose mass immigration into a rich country.

b. New immigrants vote for leftists to return the favor. New immigrants bring with them their “old cultures” under the name of diversity and are subsidized by the rich country.

c. Leftists are returned to their elected positions and bring in ever more immigrants who are to be subsidized by the rich country.

d. The positive feed back reinforces each of the three steps over time, until the host country becomes an image of the impoverished countries from which the immigrants ran away.

Either follow this path A:

1. Give them refuge out of pity.
2. Answer their call for equality out of self-guilt promoted by lefties.
3. Grant them equality.
4. Yourself become a minority while they become a majority in your own land.
5. They will mercilessly impose their laws on you.
6. No refuge for yourself and your own clan.

or this path B:
1. Give them refuge out of pity.
2. Ask them to go back to their own land before a specified time.
3. They have to fix the problems in their own land by themselves, no one else can do it for them (Their tree of liberty has to be cultivated with their own sweat and blood.).

Dueling by Tigers benefits the Hunter

Dueling by Tigers benefits the Hunter.

(Blog No.113).

#Dueling by Tigers, #Hunter, #foreign affair, #Dueling by a Clamp and a Stork, #Fisherman,

Dueling by Tigers benefits the Hunter.

Dueling by a Clamp and a Stork benefits the Fisherman.

“Dueling by Tigers benefits the Hunter” means the fierce fighting between two tigers may make them both fall preys to their hunter.

1. The meaning and the actions.

“Dueling by Tigers benefits the Hunter” (“Lưỡng Hổ Nan Tranh, Tiều Phu Đắc Lợi” in Vietnamese) means the fierce fighting between two tigers benefits their hunter . The dueling of two tigers is a rare event. Both of them would then be so exhausted that they both becomes easy preys to any lucky tiger hunter at the scene.

When the quote entered the agriculture and fishery based Vietnamese culture it created a Vietnamese quote “Dueling by a Clamp and a Stork only benefits the Fisherman” . This quote means when a stork tries to peck the flesh out of a clamp, the Clamp may react by closing its strong half-shells to grip on the tips of the beak of the Stork making it stuck to the ground to be drowned at the next high tide. The fisherman only needs to first grab the stuck Stork then dig out the Clamp, if he so wishes.For the fisherman seeing a stork stuck with its beak stuck to the ground, he should catch it. He can also dig out the clamp if he does not need it to trap the next stork.

The morality is that any two parties in any dispute have to know that their fierce fighting may make them both falling prey to some opportunistic third-party.

(“Lưỡng Hổ” in old, Han derived, Vietnamese = two Tigers, Nan Tranh= hard fighting, Đắc Lợi = receiving the benefits, Tiều Phu = a person living off the forests).

(Nghiêu Cò Tranh Nhau, Ngư Ông Đắc Lợi =Dueling by a Clamp and a Stork benefits the Fisherman).

2. Historical examples.

a. During the Three Kingdoms period in China (from the foundation of the state of Wei in AD 220 to the conquest of the state of Wu by the Jin dynasty in AD 280.), there are three most powerful contenders to the supreme title [1, 2, 3]. They are Cao Wei (曹魏) State, Shu Han (蜀漢) State, and Dong (or Eastern) Wu (東吳) State.

Figure: Map of Three Kingdoms period of China, as of 262 A.D., Date1 1 August 2017, Author SY, file https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Three_Kingdoms.png. File is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International license.

The two most powerful contenders are Northern Cao Wei State (Bắc Tào Ngụy với Tào Tháo in Vietnamese) and Eastern Dong Wu State (Đông Ngô với Tôn Quyền in Vietnamese), The weakest contender is Western Shu Han State (Tây Thục Hán với Lưu Bị, Khổng Minh, Quan Công, Trương Phi in Vietnamese). The two strongest contenders fought like Dueling Tigers while the third, weaker, Western Shu Han State only managed to prevent any of its more powerful neighbour states from being an outright winner. The weaker state played the role of the beneficiary Hunter.

b. During the Northern Jin (1115–1234) – Southern Song (1127–1279) time in China [4], the two states fought fiercely like Two Dueling Tigers, their border was the Huai river. Then came the Mongols, led by Genghis Khan (r. 1206–1227) in the North of Jin as the Hunter benefiting from the dueling.

(“Northern Jin (1115–1234) – Southern Song (1127–1279) time” in Vietnamese = Thời Bắc Kim (1115–1234) – Nam Tống (1127–1279); với chuyện Nhạc Phi-Tần Cổi).

Figure: Map of Song Dynasty 1141, By Ian Kiu, Based on a map in Albert Herrmann (1935). History and Commercial Atlas of China, Harvard University Press , file https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jin%E2%80%93Song_Wars#/media/File:Sung_Dynasty_1141.png. This file is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license.

In 1211 an enormous Mongol army conquered Jin and its neighbor Western Xia. The Mongols were allied with the Song (practicing Allying to Distant Powers to Subjugate Immediate Neighbours.). At the collapse of the Jin dynasty, the Song recaptured the former imperial capitals of Kaifeng, Luoyang, and Chang’an. Thereafter the alliance was broken. The Mongol leader Möngke Khan led a campaign against the Song in 1259 but died on August 11. There were minor border skirmishes until 1265, when Kublai won a significant battle in Sichuan. In 1275, a Song force of 130,000 troops was defeated by Kublai’s force. By 1276, most of the Song territory had been captured by Kublai’s forces.

So the Mongols had played the role of the Hunter against the Two Dueling Tigers Jin and Southern Song.

c. During the short war between two communist leaders [5,6,7,8], The Soviet Union (USSR) and China in 1968, the US had conserved its energy and let USSR and China played as two Dueling Tigers. US President Nixon did threaten USSR that US would not stand idling if USSR started to attack the Nuclear Capability of its opponent China. The threat by Nixon had denied the Soviet Union its only advantage over China, denying it the chance to walk over China and consequential claim to be the Sole Leader of the Communist Nations. The US has cleverly played the role of the beneficiary Hunter (although at the expense of its South Vietnam ally).

Both the Soviet Union and China got exhausted. The USSR was so exhausted that it could not crush the Taliban taking on its neighbor Afghanistan. China had to pretend to be the “NATO like Ally on the East for the US”. Nixon and Kissinger visited China and two weeks after that China militarily overran the Paracel Islands of South Vietnam, securing its current strategic advantage and establish its modus operandi for expansion on the seas.

d. The Iraq-Iran war.

Both Iran and Iraq wanted to be the leader in the Middle East [9]. US sold advanced weapons to both Iran (F14 Tomcats fighters and an Aircraft Carrier in negotiation) and Iraq (with less advanced fighter aircrafts). The deadly war between these two oil-rich countries (both with Islamic populations) is just like the Dueling between Two Tigers. The beneficiary Hunter is obviously the US and the Western Allies.

USA IS LOOKING FOR A DUELING BETWEEN RUSSIA AND CHINA
(As Paul Roberts explains: “Kissinger… is aware of the pro-American elites inside Russia, and he is at work creating for them a “China threat” that they can use in their effort to lead Russia into the arms of the West. If this effort is successful, Russia’s sovereignty will be eroded exactly as has the sovereignty of every other country allied with the US.”)

TRUMAN WANTED TO PLAY THIS GAME DURING WW2: Harry Truman is the man saying that “if we see that Germany is winning, we ought to help Russia, and if Russia is winning, we ought to help Germany, and that way let them kill as many as possible.” but he could not influence FD Roosevelt.

Authentic Noodle Soup with Pork Ribs or Barbecue Pork (Mì Sườn Heo hay Xá Xíu Chánh Gốc).

We are lucky to learn from Mr. Mach Van Cuong an AUTHENTIC recipes for making Noodle Soup with Pork Ribs (Mì Sườn Heo) and Noodle Soup with Barbecue Pork (Mì Thịt Heo Xá Xíu). Mr Cuong is a food connoisseur who wants to preserve and disseminate Oriental knowledge. Oriental recipes have usually been closely guarded as family secrets.

Mr Cuong had been working for his parents’ business in various types of activities (importing and exporting of electronic parts, jewelers tools, and herbal food supplies). He enjoys applying traditional herbal knowledge.

Figure: Mr Mach Van Cuong who teaches the Authentic Recipes presented here .

Noodle Soup with Pork Ribs or Barbecue Pork (Mì Sườn Heo hay Xá Xíu Chánh Gốc) originated from Cantonese recipes. Either of them is a delicious, tasty, nutritious, non-odored dish and is well liked in Saigon. They are basic ordinary noodle soup dishes from which many variations such as Noodle Soup with egg pasta Wrapped Minced Prawns (Mi Xui Cao), Noodle Soup with Prawns and Pork (Mì Tôm Thịt), Noodle Soup with Sea Food (Mì Đồ Biẻn) are built upon.

(Mì=Noodle Soup, Thịt=Meat, Sườn=Ribs, Heo=Pig, Xá=??, Xíu=Roasted)

Non-odored dish means a dish that does not make your body have its aroma (smell) after eating.

1. Noodle soup with Pork Ribs.

Figure: Noodle Soup with Barbecue Pork, (Mì Xá Xíu) in 300 ml bowl with its barbecue pork on a separate dish ss served from a Vietnamese restaurant in Australia. A cloudy broth indicates the high probability that it may have been made by a traditional method.

Noodle Soup with Pork Ribs (Mì Sườn Heo), Noodle Soup with Barbecue Pork (Mì Xá Xíu Thịt Heo) and Noodle Soup with Prawns and Pork (Mì Tôm Thịt) are often served with an accompanying Fried Prawn Pancake.

CAUTIONS:

1. A nutritious, healthy dish may become a harmful dish if the traditional recipies are not observed.

2. Cooks using unauthentic recipes may put mono-sodium glutamate in the dish. The traditional recipes has no such modern ingredient

2. Authentic Recipes for Noodle Soup with Pork Ribs.

1. Marinate 100g of pork ribs in oyster sauce.

2. Fry the marinated pork ribs in hot oil, with added chopped green spring onion, until cooked (its outside becomes hard and brown).

3. Stew the fried pork ribs in boiling water, with some added chopped green spring onions, fried slices of spring onions for 15 minutes,

4. Take the pork ribs out of the stew. After the pork ribs have been taken out, the broth is then used in the next step.

5. Make a soup broth by adding water to the broth of the previous step and bring it to boil in a big pot for more than 15 minutes with leg bones of pork, dried prawns, dried squids and a kind of dried fish for making soup supplied by Vietnamese or Chinese (Asian) grocery stores (Khô Cá Lẹp, in Vietnamese).

6. Separately boil about 200ml of water. Dip 50g of egg noodle into this boiling water for 20 seconds. The noodle is now cooked and softened. Take the noodle out of boiling water and immediately wash it with cold water to stop noodle lengths from sticking together. A restaurant cook may boil egg noodle by dipping it in the pot of boiling broth for 10 seconds using a wire ladle.

7. Cut the stewed fried pork ribs and place it on top of a bowl containing boiled egg noodle and the broth.

8. Add one or two lettuce leaves, some chopped green chives and some boiled mung bean sprouts to the bowl.

9. A (non-essential) fried prawn pancake may be added to the top of the bowl.

10. The bowl is ready to be served. Each eater may add soy sauce, red vinegar, ground pepper, sliced hot chilly to his individual bowl to suit his taste.

In authentic recipes for this dish, there is no premixing of pepper or chilly to force their consumption.

11. Small amounts of usual common ingredients can be added. They include chopped green chives (Hẹ) and fried slices of spring onion (Hành Lá).

3. Noodle soup with Barbecue Pork (Mì Xá Xíu).

1. Buy 100g of barbecue pork from a Chinese “Roast Pork, Barbecue Pork, Roast Ducks” kitchen or restaurant.

2. Cut it into thin slices of 2mm (3/32 inch) thick.

3. Jump to step 5 of Authentic recipe for Noodle Soup with Pork Ribs.

Additional types of Noodle Soups.

Figure: So called “Noodle Soup with Prawns, and Pork”, (Mì Tôm Thịt) in 300 ml bowl with its small bowl of soup broth served from a Vietnamese restaurant in Australia. Various ingredients are simply added into the bowl. This is only partially similar to an authentic Noodle Soup with Pork. A transparent broth indicates that it may have been made by dissolving mono-sodium glutamate in water!

The broth in the figure for Noodle Soup with Prawns, and Pork is too transparent. This is a sign that it may have been non-authentically prepared by simply dissolving mono-sodium glutamate in water! I found that I had suffered the MSG syndromes after eating it.

4. Ingredients.

Pork ribs or ready made barbecue pork.

Bones of pork legs.

Dried prawns, dried squids.

Dried fish for making soup (Khô Cá Lẹp in Vietnamese) supplied by Vietnamese and Chinese grocery stores.

Green chives (Hẹ in Vietnamese) and crispy fried slices of spring onions (Hành Lá in Vietnamese).

Tiny pieces of crispy fried lard.

Lettuce leaves.

Mung bean sprouts.

NO mono-sodium glutamate.

NO borax.

WARNINGS:

1. Cooks using non-authentic recipes may put in a lot of monosodium glutamate to fool customers. Traditional, authentic recipes have no such modern ingredient.

In the short term, mono-sodium glutamate may cause extreme headache, throat congestion, prolong thirst and swelling of your ankles and feet. Do NOT eat any non-authentic dish prepared with such ingredient.

2. Do NOT eat any dish if you suspect that it has been prepared using borax.

Borax is banned as a food ingredient. Borax is mainly used as a Welding Flux (for goldsmith welding and for industrial brazing using Acetylene-Oxygen Gas Torches), in Photo-chemistry (as a Stopper Solution), in Pest Control (the mixture of Borax and Icing Sugar is an Ant Poison). Its Vietnamese name is Hàn The (Hàn=for welding, The=sour taste).

5. Where to find it.

It is a common favorite dish (costing 30000VND =$2.00 US in 2017) in Vietnam (in Saigon). In Australia, it cost $12 AU.

I don’t know how much it would cost in a Vietnamese restaurant outside Vietnam. It may cost you $6.00 US (?).
