Hi everyone, I am currently 26 years old from Germany and I am going to graduate this year with a Masters in Chemistry and I would really like to experience a different place for at least year (preferably more), before eventually deciding what I am gonna do next. I already visited Vietnam/Hanoi a couple of times (vacations/backpacking) and completely fall in love with the country. I always hear about teaching jobs in SEA, tho I am not too sure if I am permitted to teach English since I am not a native English speaker, and I assume there is not enough demand for German teachers. I was wondering if anyone has some advice in regards to my job possibilities?

I have major issues with mould. I don't like it, it doesn't like me (I can tell); basically we don't co-exist happily. I have just moved into a house on West lake. Here, there is mould. I would be grateful if people would comment on the effectiveness of the following methods for removing / preventing mould, and suggest other possible solutions. I know there's a certain level that I'll just have to tolerate - I want this to be as small as possible though! Mould destruction methods: * cross breezes - have windows open as much as possible, fans on; * dehumidifier; * dissicants - such as 'damp rid' and 'tinkling grandma' (local brand - loving the name); * scrub walls and ceilings with sugar soap; * pray to the fire Gods to rid this scurge from the earth - or at least m...

Lately I've found myself being attacked rather vigourously by mosquitos whilst I'm sleeping, which I'm not enjoying. I can't seem to locate the insects responsible (although I'm pretty sure they're mosquitos rather than bed bugs or fleas), and the idea of using a net makes me feel a bit claustrophobic. I heard that there's some kind of effective electronic mosquito deterrent / zapper that one can plug into a power socket - does anyone have details on this product, or know where I could buy one? Thanks R
