Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

Has anyone here tried sending gifts to loved ones in the Philippines via websites like myregalo.com? My parents' wedding anniversary is coming up, and was thinking of sending them a little something :)

    Thanks @Admin! Na-realize ko na Red Ribbon accepts credit cards pala for their online orders. I've sent the folks a big cake, and paid less than $20 for it because we're billed in Php rates! Hehe. But I should check other online stores in case I want to send stuff other than cake :D

    Thanks for the site. I can send gifts to my loveones. No need to transfer money to my sister's bank account then wait for 3-4days para pumasok ang padala. This is hassle free!
