RE: these people like to gamble... Most people like to gamble to some degree, whether it is Bingo; lottery tickets; free draws; the stock market; cards; horses; car races; sporting events; ... I am working overseas at the present moment, although not in Asia. I have, however, spoken to many people who have worked or lived in Asia, including Vietnam and the story was the same with all of them... the Vietnamese LOVE TO GAMBLE. Cock-fighting is also a gambling 'sport'.... Patience....
