American Tourister and HSBC

I was surprised when HSBC offered me yet another new card, HSBC Gold Visa.  Just a few months ago, I got an offer to get an HSBC Red Mastercard and I was able to redeem 3 pairs of shoes for free!

Public Service: Modus on Parking for US Visa Applicants

Our scheduled appointment was 8:45am.  US Embassy wants you to be there at least 15 minutes before your schedule.  Together with the kids, we left the house at 630am.  We got into the tail of traffic at Quirino Highway so we decided to take another route.  Fortunately, the longer route wasn’t as jammed as theContinue reading “Public Service: Modus on Parking for US Visa Applicants”
