Was wondering if anyone here has used a Vietnamese removal company? I have had a look at Crown and JVK, but the prices way too high for us modest earners. I have used Taxi Thai before, but seems that they only supply the transport and you have to carry everything yourself.

I work as an English teacher teaching teenagers and adults academic English. I'm trying to find out if there are any English clubs in Hanoi where my students can go to practise their language outside of class. I know there are several cafes that organise this kind of thing in HCMC, but I've never heard of any here. Does anyone know of any? Cheers.

Anyone interested in book exchange? Or even a mini library (in English; novels, other fiction, non fictions, text books)? I've got 9 books that I'd like to swap. I know that there are book shops that do book exchange, but they tend to be a rip off, (in the past I've exchanged 3 books and money for 1). I'm talking swapping one book for another, fairly. Or, in future, a mini libary where people donate some books then can borrow books forever. I don't think there's an English language library ...

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?

I have a 900 watt UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) that I bought and have been using in China. Plugging it in to a 2 wire socket here in Hanoi and I am getting no power, only a "UPS Off" message. The electricity in China and Vietnam are supposed to be exactly the same, 220v/50hz, however I am wondering if the UPS is refusing to function because of the lack of a dedicated ground wire at the socket. Anyone else using a UPS in Vietnam? Does it function without a ground wire? Did you buy the...

Hi, I lost my original degree certificate and didn't have time to get a replacement before I came to Vietnam. My university sent the replacement to my old address, and I've got someone to post it out to Hanoi. After doing some reading online it appears that sending anything to Vietnam isn't advised. Reading lots of stories of valuable items being stolen, lost, taking months to show up, etc. Feeling a bit stupid 'cause obviously it's pretty valuable and my university can only provide ...
