Mga sis, tinitignan ba nung mga consul yung ITR if net loss or net income? Nag net loss kasi yung latest ITR ng bestfriend ko. About sa Bank Certificate, pano naman kung the account was opened last 09-26-2012. Malabo bang bigyan ng visa kapag ganun? Matagal na talaga syang may account sa bank na yon, the problem in na-SNATCH yung friend ko kasama yung cheques nya na may pirma, kaya ginawa nya after that pinaclose yung dati nyang account and then nag-open ng panibago.

Hi! To our sisses who live in Seoul how's the weather should I be in boots and trench coat? I'll be there on 25-30 Oct. May fall foliage pa ba sa mga parks. Thanks so much in advance sa reply.

Hi mga sis..

Wondering lang if buildings are heated during the cold season (late autumn)? Parang lahat kasi nag aadvertise na may aircon yung guesthouses nila but nobody mentioned na they have heater, too. Or yung aircon ba nila is 2-way? Pwede ba mag choose yun if we want na hot air ang lalabas instead of cold? Just need to make sure na hinde kami naka jacket while sleeping..

TIA  :)

^sis lischan, kapag winter na, may mga heater sa mga store/malls/restos even sa mrt meron din. Sa mga guesthouse meron din, try mo sa Namsan Guesthouse, stayed there last Feb (this year).
Mukang makakasabay pa kita, kelan Korea mo?

^^ yung guesthouse namin, not sure if may heather coz summer kami andun. yung floor naman nila is the traditional "ondol"-- parang may heating system yung floor. They have rooms without beds, maglalatag kayo sa floor tapos ma-feel mo yung init nung floor. Yung room naman namin may bed pero heated din yung floor.. :)

haaay gusto ko bumalik! di ko kasi naabutan yung P10 sale ng Cebu Pac :'( abang abang na naman!

My best friend i have just booked promo fares to incheon for april 28 to may 3, 2013. It's not that cheap pero puwede narin. Kakastress din kasi mag hintay ng super murang promo fares eh. Besides, ok yung sched na nakuha namin. Can't wait to go to seoul! Wish ko lang makakuha kami ng visa.  :)

^8800php per head kami sis inclusive of 20 kgs baggage allowance papunta and 30kilos pauwi. Then with seat selector narin.  :) ok narin for us kasi kung piso fare man almost 6k din aabutin eh kasi expensive talaga fuel surcharge and taxes to incheon. I'm not sa cherry blossoms sis eh. Super excited kami kasi if ever we'll be given a visa, first time namin ng best friend ko dun.  :)
How's the weather in seoul on the last week of april. I hope it won't be that cold anymore. Carry na ba ng light jacket? Thanks :)

^ oh okay. Yah naisip nga rin namin almost 6k sa P10.. Kaya nagdecide kami to book na. :) i don't think it's that cold pa. My friend went there around that time this year, light jacket nalang sya e.

Praying na di magka-prob with visa, excited na ko bumalik! Haaay Lord, please naman makisama ang embassy. Haha!

^how much kuha niyo per head sa tickets sis? Oo nga sana mabigyan din kami ng visa. 2nd time niyo na pala sis so i think ok na yun.  :)

We're thinking of staying at ibis hotel myeongdong. Medyo mahal nga lang nasa 7k per night pero mukhang ok naman. Can anyone suggest a nice hotel in myeongdong area?  :)
6 days kami dun. Here are some places that we want to visit. :
Nami island
Lotte world
Everland theme park
Gyeongbokgun palace
N seoul tower observatory and teddy bear museum
Hello kitty cafe in hongdae
Of course, shopping!!!  :)
I have a computation of the entrances fees for all attractions. A total of 4200 pesos per pax. Including transpo i think 10k pesos is enough na. Am i right sisses?  Thanks!  :)
