Hey Guys, I'm about to buy a Ural 650cc with a sidecar for $2500. Is that price reasonable? It has a blue plate but doesn't have papers will that cause a problem?

The IRS passed a law called FACTA which requires foreign banks to notify them of all accounts with a balance over $50,000 held by US citizens or residents. The account holder has to authorize this by filling out a W9 form. Since my balance is well below $50,000, I am not legally equired to fill out the W9 form. However, my bank, Vietcombank, requires all US customers to fill out a W9 form, regardless of their account balance. I don't want to provide the US govenment with information that ...

Hi, My husband and I are moving here with our 7 year old. Would love a bit of advice on where we should be looking for accommodation and also how I can find groups for my son. We dontvwabt to do international schools, we tend to be a bit more informal :) so whether there are kids groups or extra curricular we can look into and getting him a tutor that would be great. Would love a bit of advice. Thanks in advance!

Based on the inputs from discussions on this and other Vietnam boards, I came up with a budget required for living and teaching in Vietnam. I think this helps answer the circular question that kept arising, anytime someone brought up cost of living in Vietnam. Many people kept saying that you can live on $XXXX per month. While the absolute number is low, the relative cost of living is so much lower in Vietnam that living on $XXXX is actually better than what is available in the US/UK/OZ, ...

Have a friend, who are learning English at the moment. Her English is alright, but still little bit shy (you know, for beginer, sometimes you know all the words, the grammar, the structure but still can't open your mouth). I'd help her (though my English is not exactly good) but unfortunately I am in Hanoi anymore. I remember TNH have a language club before, but not sure if it's still working. Do you happen to know any update?
