The only members of the Filipino community I\'ve come across in Hanoi were a pair of teachers who worked at Cleverlearn last year (no idea of they\'re still there), and members of a couple bands who used to play at Seventeen Saloon and My Way Hanoi Opera. I don\'t know if that helps you any, but if you track any of them down, they may have more suggestions for you.
I read that there is an group called \'Pinoy in Hanoi\' one of its member is working in the a hotel, i believe its Sofitel. In case you were able to get some information regarding the organization, can you give me the details too. I\'m a Filipino and will be working there starting September 20.
I\'ll give you some updates in case I get hold of additional information.
Any luck? I'm a Filipina-American living here. I made adobo the other day but it just wasnt the same without datu puti and silver swan :(
Does anyone know where to get Filipino Groceries?? You would think in Asia it would be easy.. but its easier to find filipino markets/food in California! Hehe..
You could always try the phillipines embassy, they might hold social functions like the australian embassy does each month. There use to be a phillipino team in the darts league, mabuhay, which had about 15 players a couple years back, dont want to generalise but the phillipinos I know tend to be pretty migratory, they seem to move around alot for work so the community is everchanging in hanoi.
If you PM me your email i can put you in touch with some Phillipino mates I play darts with and maybe they can point you in the right direction.
Alternatively turn up a darts next wednesday night at finnegans upstairs about 8, we have 2 regular phillipino guys who come to play each week.
