Cassia bark in SEA?

Anyone have leads? It is used to flavor broths in Chinese cooking, and is apparently confused with conventional cinnamon quite readily. This site says "Chunks of cassia bark are thick but brittle, and they’re often sold in small pieces or irregular shapes."

Thanks.

    1. World Spice Market (On western, behind the market) has cassia chips.

      1. World Spice as mentioned below has cassia in strips, cassia in chunks, and ground cassia. It also has true cinnamon.

        World spice really should be where you are getting all your spices from.

          I can see this place would get me into serious trouble.
          I could buy my schwuan [sp?] pepper corns for my 5 spice there.
          Also the things I read about in their web site.
          Sounds wonderful.
          Next time I'm in SEA, I'll drop by.
