Happy 2020 to all! I'm very pleased to announce that we have reached the 1 DECADE milestone! This is a proof that we continue to hold the title "Longest running Filipino Australian Forum" on the net! This will not be possible without your continued support , especially to those who kept on visiting us and helping others with their AU journey. To those who has already successfully migrated please don't forget us and continue to support our kababayan who will be next in line, while to those who are still in progress, we hope and wish you the best. May this year be a great year to everyone. 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!
