Help me make Ca Phe Sua Da in Manhattan....

Can anyone tell this Brit of a shop that might stock sweetened condensed milk in Manhattan? I found some Vietnamese coffee today when I was wandering around Chinatown and really fancy some ca phe sua da, but haven't been able to find the condensed milk in any local stores.

How to fix lowercase to small caps/conversion issues in Microsoft Word 2007 for certain unicode characters with diacritics?

I have a text (MS Word 2007) that cites Vietnamese authors whose names are written in latin script with diacritics, stored in Zotero in lowercase (with the initial in uppercase). When using a citation style (for footnotes and bibliography) with small caps/uppercase for the names, Word keeps some characters in lowercase: "Dương Thiệu Tống" shows up as "DƯƠNG THIệU TốNG" instead of "DƯƠNG THIỆU TỐNG". How to fix this? [more inside]

iPad Apps for Chinese or Vietnamese Adults

What apps would a 50-year old Chinese or Vietnamese person have on their iPad? I'm thinking of getting my parents iPads, since I've really enjoyed mine, think that it'd be simple enough for them to use, and easy enough to do technical support for. They aren't that technically savvy and don't speak English well so I'd like to get them started first on some easy to use apps where they could get content such as foreign news, music, and television shows.

A special gift to melt her sweet Vietnamese heart?

I want to get a nice gift for a lovely Vietnamese friend. She just gave me a Tet present - a decorated envelope with a lucky $2 bill. We've been flirting for several years, and now it looks like we might be about to get serious. I want to get her something that will have special meaning for her Vietnamese background... and will also (hopefully) melt her sweet southeast-asian heart. Any suggestions from Mefites familiar with Vietnamese culture? Also, I am willing to spend up to $50 for this gift.
