Hi all, I'll be moving to Vietnam next year to work. I'll be working for a local organisation who will organise my work visa. I would like my partner to join me, but we're unmarried, and we're both from the EU (France and the UK) Are there dependent partner/spouse visas? Many thanks!

I currently live in a place with wooden shutters on the windows. I find it inconvenient to wake up to a dark room and have to open the shutters every morning. Does anyone leave their shutters open ask the time and just rely on glass windows or is this considered unsafe? No neighbours leave their shutters open overnight..

What Vietnamese slang words do you use? I am trying to learn tiếng Việt, but I think the language teached is very formal. What people speak on the street seems to be quite an other language. So please post some words or phrases of 'slang' and their translations. I already have some young Vietnamese friends on social media. What are some 'simplified' expressions used by the youth today in SMS or internet chat?

Looking for wide angle, primary lens that fits Nikon body. Nikkor, Tamron, Tokina, Sigma are all ok, as long as it's good glass and FULL FRAME. New or used. Not fish-eye. 20mm or wider. I've been to a few shops on Vong Duc, and they seemed hopeful, but all their lenses were zooms. Any suggestions appreciated!

Friends who visit from overseas sometimes ask about the eggs on sale in the markets and shops here and say they suppose they're from free-range chickens. I suspect most of the eggs are not from free-range chickens but really have no idea, and lately I've been wondering about the matter a lot. Does anyone know how eggs are generally produced here?

I was foolish enough to leave my keys in the lock for a few minutes after I returned home yesterday and sure enough when I went to retrieve them some enterprising young fellow had already helped himself to them. Does anyone know of a reputable locksmith service in hanoi?
