    @akocpa tip ko for anyone flying with CebuPac just download yung Onboard Player by DTI software from GoogleApps then pag na bore you can connect sa in-flight entertainment ng cebupac, just open your wifi. Last year limited lng yng tagalog movies, but still pampalipas oras. It's free.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
