Hi. My employer has threaten to cancel my visa that they got for me. She and I had signed for a probationary contract that's supposed to take effect on dec 1 2019, now when I talk to my employer she's offering a probationary period that we did not discuss before and not included in the contract. Consequently, I negotiated for them to honor the original contract we both signed for. And now, she wishes to terminate it unilaterally and cancel my visa. She told me to go to the immigration office but I refused to do so. May I ask your opinion, suggestions about this? Thanks for your reply

Here's our problem.. We are traveling to Cambodia 25-28 Sept 2010 and we just got our visas (B3) today. The problem is this passport of his ran out of pages. He is holding an Australian passport and he is planning to get a new passport tomorrow (Est TAT would be 10 days). How does he transfer the valid visa on to his new passport? What to do? We looked at the passport site of Australia and is pretty much crap and cannot provide any valid answers.

Heading home ... and looking to send about 10 medium/large boxes (probably about 15-30kg per box) of personal effects (books, kitchen stuff, DVDs, clothes, etc.), no furniture. Does anyone have any good experience of shipping companies that will do this (and not cost more than the contents are worth)? Speed is not an issue, 3 months by surface (sea) would be fine. I asked at the Post Office (at Ho Hoan Kiem), but they said VND5,850,000 (US$250) for a 20Kg box. That was the cheapest rate!

This country is a nice country. Unfortunately, many locals have been talking about the bad chemicals in the food that farmers have used to keep the fruit, vegetables, and meat fresh. Additionally, lots of food is being imported from China. One case said that some chicken eaten today is being imported from either the 1960s or 1970s. One case stated that they have chemicals to turn pork into beef. Another case stated some are suffering from sickness and death due to the harmful chemicals in the food. The last case heard was that in some restaurants, they were reusing the old hotpot water from other restaurants to save money. With all these food issues, many people have decided to not go to restaurants or buy food from local farmers. Of course, we wish that something was being done about a...

This is probably one for the follically challenged guys (like myself!) out there in our fair city. While indulging in my weekly head shave this morning, (yes, I do have some but not enough to make a Hanoi-style combover a worthwhile prospect),my trusty Remington Head shaver expired without warning and appears now to be an ex-shaver.So, my question is, where do I get a replacement that will give me the close-cropped No.1 I have become so used to? It doesn't have to be a Remington, but something reasonably robust that will do the job is required, pronto.Any ideas anyone?

Hello, does anyone know where I can find a Herman Miller chair in Ha Noi ? Or Vietnam if Hanoi is too difficult. I found one shop called KNH but then they never answer their phone and the shop always closed. If by any chance KNH read this, please pm me how to contact you because I know you have the chair I want. Thank you.

Is fruit relatively expensive here or am I being overcharged? For example, I've paid 75 cents for a mango from two different street vendors here and they cost about a dollar at Asian markets in the U.S. Today I got some strawberries from a lady on a bicycle and she wanted to charge me 30k but ended up taking 10K. I don't know how much they weighed but it wasn't much - maybe enough to fill a coffee mug. Does that sound right? Thanks

Can you buy/sell Onitsuka Tiger Trainers made in Vietnam online? Back in the UK now and they're quite pricey. Wondering if there's a place where I could pick up something similar to the 500'000 Dong I paid new in Hoan Kiem online. Checked FB mkt place/ebay/amazon - usual suspects, nothing. Thanks x.

Hi Everyone Some questions about Squash, the game, not the food. a) Are the squash courts at the Hanoi Club the only ones in town? b) If they are can you pay a day rate and play, as $3000 a year is too steep for my pockets? c) If there are others, where are they and can you pay daily or do you to have to join? d) If any one is a member of the Hanoi Club and would like to play - please get in touch! Average ability. e) I am also a qualified teacher and coach, so if you would like some tuition also get in touch we can work out payment details later. Many Thanks Mike McDonald

Hi, I am coming to Hanoi for 10 days at the end of October, and I would like to learn woodblock printmaking. I have done some etching and mokuhanga as well, but I am far from being an expert. I would be interested in printing blocks on fabric. There is a great tradition and skill in Vietnam, but browsing the web I have not been able to find any workshops or classes. I would be looking to spend around 4 hours a day learning the craft during my stay. I would be grateful if you could give me some guidance. Recommendations on where to buy art supplies in Hanoi (tools, ink, paper) would also be most welcome. Thanks in advance Marta

Hi there, Was wondering if anyone could help ? My husband has signed us up to a house that really isn't appropriate as stairs etc are a safety issue for my small children, I know I can baby proof the stairs but everything but a small lounge room is upstairs which means we don't actually utilize any other part of the house as that would involve lugging 2 kids up 4 flights of stairs go use the rooftop terrace as well as drinks food etc that we would need when up there. He Has signed us up for a 12 month lease and want to know the likelihood of getting out of this. Also the contract states that by September (been here sin July) we have to cough up the entire 12 months rent in advance (in 3 month blocks of payment since July) is this normal ? It's an awful lot of money to pay upfron...
