Hi, I've done a search of TNH and the web in the hope of finding any kids karate/martial arts classes but haven't had much luck. There is a bit out their for teenagers but nothing for younger kids. Does anyone know of classes that will accept kids 5 years old? I'm open to any styles as I just want to get my boy in to it for the discipline. Thanks in advance. Scott.
Where can I practise traditional Vietnamese martial arts i.e., Nam Huynh Dao or Nhat Nam? Or Chinese Wing Chun (Ving Tsun) or Vinh Xuan Quyen? (Preferably a Vietnamese or Chinese teacher/master) Please provide full contact details. Many thanks!!
Hi, We have to move into a smaller apartment. A 1 bedroom apartment is fine but may not have enough space for our earthly belongings, materials and some equipment. This is after I have sold off surplus shelves etc. already. Is there a place in Hanoi where it is possible to safely store some boxes?
Police Clearance or Judicial certificate. There was a similar question regarding the above which have answered my worries but it was dated 2 years ago. I was in Hanoi for more than a year 9 yrs ago and now desperately need a police clearance. If I lost my Vietnam temporary resident card. What else would I be needing to produce to helping my Viet friend( who has no idea how to get a clearance for me)1. might be copies of passport? 2 fees 3. letter of authority(authorised letter) Anything else? Please help me as I am in the desperate need to get Vietnam police clearance ASAP. Thank you
Does anyone know anyone that does home massages...? I feel so relaxed at my home and hate the hassle of going out just to then get back into a cab, and have to contend with the hassle of going home... They do it all the time in other parts of the east... any where here?
there was a previous post asking about ballet classes for adults. N space in West Lake has a teacher who is teaching beginner ballet classes. They may be willing to start adult intermediate classes if enough people are interested. For me I just want to move, and twirl and get a good work out for fun. I am not so worried about technique. Anyone else interested ? If we get enough people (4 or 5?) we can start. morning is best for me.
Hi In Hanoi: Where are the cheapest (and best) pharmacies? Or a street that has numerous pharamacies in competition. I would like to buy: Choline (Gliatin, Alzheilin), Piracetam, Sulbutamine (Arcalion), 5-HTP Tyrosine and so on. I have been to a few with mixed success. Thanks in advance. Cheers.
hi ... I am in a dilemna here.. I came to hanoi approx a year back.. I had been stayin at one house and recently moved to new apartment.. Soon I will be moving out of VN and would require to get "no criminal records" certificate[issued by department of justice].. When I went to the police station last week, found out that my old house owner did not register my residence.. hence could not get a police certificate for my stay at that house... now my employer is ready to give a notarized document that I have been staying there [since that was a company guest house].. Is this sufficient to get the "No Criminal Records Certificate"?? Appreciate anyone's help on this....
Hi everyone! So I need to obtain a Criminal records check "Ly lich Tu phap" from the National Center for Criminal Records in Vietnam. I am a Uk citizen who no longer resides in Vietnam. I need this certificate to pass security clearances in my new job in the UK. I have looked through the Vietnamese embassy in the UK's website for advice and it appears that it can be done but you need to authorise someone in Vietnam to do it for you. I have no contacts in Hanoi who could possibly do this for me. http://vietnamembassy.org.uk/index.php?action=p&ct=Consular%20Services%20for%20Ireland%20residents#PCHECK I have contacted a few law firms about this and have been quoted $500(!) to do this. Does anyone know of anyone else offering this sort of service at a better price? Any hel...
Dear friends, In two weeks I'll be in Vietnam and want to throw a party with friends (expats and locals). We'll have dinner first and after that I'm looking for a party place, from around 10pm to 1pm. Preferably something were I can open a tab for my friends or an open bar. I don't want my friends to pay them themselves. Does anyone know a nice place like a classy bar? Or is it better to go to a Karaoke place? . Thanks!
