19 months in Ho Chi Minh City – Lifestyle and affordability

So a year and a half later, I've decided to post an update on my life here in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. At this point it's the country I've lived in the longest! I am genuinely surprised at this fact, and I'm even more surprised that I've just signed on to complete another year at my job. When I first arrived I did not expect to live here longer than six months, but here I am! I can explain the reasons behind this decision in another post as it’s more personal, but this one will mostly be about my lifestyle and the cost of living.
