VietNamNet Bridge - While Bun cha Huong Lien and Habeco have been taking full advantage of US President Obama’s visit to the shop and the use of Bia Ha Noi to boost sales, Vinamilk has kept quiet, though its bottled water ICY was used by US delegates. In Hanoi, ‘Bun cha Huong Lien’ is now called ‘Bun cha Obama’, as it was the bun cha shop where the US President had dinner on the first day of his visit to Vietnam. The shop has become so crowded that many Hanoians complain on their Facebook that they cannot book a table on ordinary day. Meanwhile, a local newspaper reported that customers, instead of ordering separate dishes, always order ‘a serving for Obama’, i.e they want to taste what Obama ate that evening. Buu Dien, an ICT news website, reported that nearly all the domain names with the key word ‘bunchaobama’ (bun cha Obama) have been registered Bun cha Huong Lien and Habeco have been taking full advantage of US President … [Read more...] about How can Vietnamese businesses exploit President Obama’s visit?

VN division one home sides suffer (22-02-2005) NHA TRANG — Da My Nghe-HCM City continued their unbeaten run in the First Division with a come-from-behind win away over Khanh Hoa at Nha Trang Stadium last weekend. The Division's third round of games saw several surprises, with three powerhouses drawing on their home fields and two others losing. In Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa earned an early lead when Ghana's Felix scored from a short-range shot. The hosts looked poised to increase their lead with an attacking play, but the HCM City side's defence was up to the challenge. At the other end of the field, Da My Nghe's players converted on two out of three chances, with Phan Anh Tuan and Adeyemi Michel scoring goals in the 22nd and 74th minutes. The win put Da My Nghe on top of the table, replacing promotion candidates Huda Hue, who frittered away their home advantage in a 1-1 draw against Thanh Hoa.
