  1. In early November, I placed an order with Amazon for 45 books. Within ten days, I received notice from them that the books had been sent from the U.S. in five different shipments. So far I haven't seen a single one. They are untraceable when I log on to my Amazon account as they were shipped with no tracking numbers. I have been offered a full refund but would prefer to have the books. Another order for a single book from a private seller in the U.S. has also gone missing. Do books go through Philpost and then through customs at the central post office in Manila? There are no duties on import
  2. Several months ago, I contacted a lawyer in Manila to have a will drawn up. I was told that the minimum charge would be something like U.S. $3,000. Since I am single with no dependents, my financial affairs are quite straightforward and I didn't proceed. Was just wondering if I can have a real will made at a more reasonable price (if so how much and where) or would a living will I make myself (and perhaps have notarized) be as good and legally valid? Any advice...much appreciated.

  4. Can anybody recommend a good reasonably-priced lawyer in Ermita/Malate? I need to have a will and power of attorney ASAP. TXS.
  5. Has there been any progress lately on reducing the cost for a Classic or Human Touch SRRV to $5,000. Would be warly welcomed by many.
  6. I have about five cubic meters of personal effects (books, CDs, and some oriental carpets) that I want to import to the Philippines from Korea. I'm currently on a tourist visa and have been told that I would have to pay about 30 per cent duty plus 12 per cent VAT to bring the goods in. But how do customs arrive at a total valuation of the goods once they're here? Does any body have a rough idea of how much this might cost...are we talking a couple of thousand dollars or significantly more? Is the cost of doing this on a tourist visa prohibitive or should I bite the bullet and change my visa s
  7. Is it possible to obtain a Quota Visa in Manila? If so, does anybody have the name and contact details ( Edited by forum Manager) A free case of San Mig (Pilsen or Light) to anyone who can help. TXS.
