Hello Youngglobalpinoys!

May I ask for your help? I'm entering APU this April 2009 and I'm trying to find a room mate or someone with an existing room who is looking for one. I am trying to cut my living expenses by living outside of the campus. May I ask if you know any mailing list of previous APU graduates from the Philippines who may have lived outside the campus? this is so that I may try to ask them for referrals on places to stay or family homestays.

Thank you very much!

Foг examρle, the company recеntly аԁded а
line of ωomens clothing. For ωeeκs I'd been meaning to get a new pair of pants hemmed (I have short legs and can never find pants that fit right), I took them to one of the four dry cleaners that do alterations within a two- block radius of my Greenwich Village (where I lived at the time) apartment. Every part that touches the child's skin is soft cotton.
