    How do I start moving?

    If you are allowed to stay in Malaysia for 30 days without a visa with your Philippines passport, then it stands to assume that you can exit at 30 days and enter again to gain another 30 days. You would not necessarily have to return to your home country, just exit Malaysia, to a neighbouring country perhaps? For example, you enter Malaysia 1/1/13, you will exit on 30/1/13 and go to Thailand, which does not require Philippines passport holders to have a visa, you can stay overnight (or 30 days if you like) and enter Malaysia again on 1/2/13 and stay for another 30 days. These types of 'visa-free' stays are for tourism purposes and would not allow you to legally work in the country. You can use that time to look for employment and hopefully your employer would help with further visa issues once you are employed. As for the nanny work, my sister googled multiple sites and set up multiple accounts with various profiles with agencies who then set up interviews through Skype. I will ask her the site that eventually got her the job in Belgium. In the mean time, do an internet search and start making a resume and setting up profiles. Many of them are free to join. about 7 years ago

    Cambodia with teenagers for 3 weeks

    ...if I had to make a preference list. 1. Cambodia 2. Thailand 3. Vietnam 4. Laos I think it's wonderful that you are planning on your own. It will instill a thirst for independent travel in your children, which is an amazing gift. If there are hiccups, that's also part of the fun and unpredictability of travel, whether it be independent or guided. Hope this helps you further! :) about 7 years ago

    Cambodia with teenagers for 3 weeks

    Yes, Cambodia is less developed than Thailand and Vietnam, but it is changing so fast! I first travelled there in 2007 and when I returned in 2011 and 2012, some areas had changed so dramatically! Angkor Wat is better equipped to handle tourists, they built tracks with railing on what used to be slippery mud tracks and the guides are more knowledgeable about how to protect their national relics and why. For example, in 2007, you could climb all over the ruins and the banyan trees, now many of the popular sites have signs and sections are roped off to prevent damage to the site - which is a big step to preserving such a unique piece of history for more people to enjoy. Okay, I'm about to start writing an essay! :p Another incident that made me happy was in 2007, I went to 'Angkor Zoo' that was located inside Angkor Wat. They call it a zoo but it was more of a prison. I won't go into details but animals were caged and obviously starved and some were in pain. Conditions were atrocious, I felt sick that I paid US$10 to see this horror. In 2011, I went to Phnom Penh with my boyfriend and we went to Phnom Tamao Animal Refuge Centre with Betelnut Tours (http://www.travelfish.org/feature/142). The English-speaking guide was wonderful and although the conditions here are not the standards we are used to for zoos in the western world, it was immensely better than the place I saw in 2007. I told the story about my last visit to my guide and she was so excited to tell me that they were involved with the closing down of that zoo and now all the animals are living happily there. They do good work and one of the charities that I donate to 'Free the Bears Fund' works tirelessly there to well...free the bears! (http://www.freethebears.org.au/) :) I was so happy to have done this tour and to find out that those animals have a better home. I think that you will enjoy it too, it is also a good chance to see the countryside on the outskirts of PP. As for my preferences on the SE Asian countries? I'm part Cambodian, so I'm a little bias. Speaking objectively, they are so different, the things to enjoy and explore in each country is definitely unique. about 7 years ago

    How's the weather in Bangkok this month of September?

    September is the tail end of the wet season, so decreasing rain. But humidity ensues any time of the year in Bangkok. Bring lightweight clothing especially a light jacket, because you'll likely be in and out of air conditioning. Safe travels! :) about 7 years ago
