animals

I've just got home after a nice night out to my flat on a small street and have spent four minutes listening to an animal, I think a dog, screaming as if in agony. I've heard various stories about what happens to meat dogs around the full moon but I've never heard anything like this before so close to home. Do I ignore it? Do I search out the animal and owner and try to intervene? What DO I do? Because actually I don't know WHAT to do.

Selling your Pet ie. your beloved dog friend

Is there a cultural reason why people try to sell their (ordinary) dogs in the Classifieds and other channels? I understand dog breeders breed puppies of particular types to sell to people who are seeking a particular type of dog. What I don't understand is why people who are moving, are finding their lifestyle too busy etc would want to sell their beloved pet, rather than give it to someone (hopefully nice) who will take care of it.

How much do you 'pay' your local cops for paper...

I've been here for three years now. Living in my last house for over two years, and now another house in the same street. (Doi Can.) In my last house, 209 Doi Can, any paperwork needed from the local police was free. When I needed a proof of residency form it was free. In the new house, 463 Doi Can, It's costing 500,000 per document. I'm about to 'buy' my third we've 'bought' one and will need another soon for my partner, and we 'bought' one for our daughter a month ago. How much ...

Last bus times in Hanoi

Does anyone know where one can find times for buses in Hanoi? I am meaning start and end times (I'm not expecting exact times during the day). It seems like several bus routes (32, 49, 34) have suddenly started ending earlier than before. This site is pretty good for information: http://tramoc.com.vn And the bus routes here are great: http://115.84.178.23:8099 But I couldn't find information on last bus times.

Travel agent for International flights

Hi, had a quick look through the travel agents section but most of the reviews there are for local trips. Can anyone recommend a good travel agent to handle international travel? We are looking for return flights from Ha Noi to Melbourne (Australia) in September. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Yamaha Exciter vs Honda Future Neo

Hi I plan on buying a brand new motorbike next week. I've been renting a Future Neo for almost a year and half, and I was thinking I should really buy one instead. I'm not a big fan of waves, I've always loved the first Future, and Future Neo is also a good bike. But now I discover the Yamaha Exciter. It seems better than the neo, mechanically speaking, but also about 5 millions more expensive. I've never tried one, nor see anybody driving one everyday. I'd like to have some feedbacks on ...

Title of the Morning loudspeakers song in Tay H...

Hi, I used to live in the Tay Ho district, Au co Ward (124 Ngo Au co). Loudspeakers were playing a song, EVERY single morning! This was pretty annoying on saturday (and sometimes on sunday). But since I don't live i Vietnam anymore...I miss it! Would someone be able to recognize the song and tell me the name of it? it might not have change since last year. I have a poor quality recording of it but even Shazam doesn't recognize it... Thx! Nicolas

New rental laws

I have just moved to a new room. The landlord says the new laws state that the rental agreement can't be in Vietnamese and English. Only Vietnamese. True ? Also I have to go to the police when I leave to say I am changing flats. Otherwise the landlord can't rent the place to a foreigner again. True ? thanks

Access to old classifieds

Hi, I saw a personal ad last month that I was tempted to respond to but didn't because I was in a relationship. Now the relationship is over, but I can't find the ad. It seems they remove them after a few weeks. Does anyone know if there is a archives section or another way to access older classifieds? Thanks.
