Recommended Posts

Finally got my visa this 12:50 NOON. It's been almost 2 weeks since they texted me. I have read some posts here that they won't entertain calls on visa related anymore and never did calling before ever since. Just made a try yesterday,I was able to connect with them immediately and Sir Robbie answered the phone he said at first that they won't entertain calls anymore with regards to visa inquiry but as I have shared with him how long did I wait luckily he accomodated me and then he asked my cellphone number and told me to wait for their text. My intention of calling is that to let them aware and get their attention coz they might overlooked our files because of their bundles of files they are working everyday. Did tried again this morning at around 11:48 am and the woman who answered the phone told me that they won't entertain calls at all and better for me to text on their HOTLINE and I asked her in a nicer way that ''Are you sure Ma'am that you'll be able to received and read our text message on your Hotline coz I have never received replies everytime I text'' and she said ''Yes'' I thank her and then we ended up our conversation.So I texted the hotline TRICE this morning. At around 12:50 noon someone knocked on the door looking for me and I am so glad coz that man brought my visa. I am from Northern Mindanao ''Ozamiz'', just in case some Mindanaowan's Vjers also read this. Thank you everyone especially those people to shared their golden ideas. My departure in Manila is this coming May 24, 10:00 PM and my POE is in LA (LAX) arrived their on May 24, 8:05 PM. I and ''wlissa rbert'' had planned to be together on the trip and we booked already same flight and I'll pray for you weng to receive your visa before that day so we could be together, as well as Jartu63 I'll pray also for you chel to you both as well as to those wo were still waiting. God bless everyone....

Congrats to Jon and Gen... please read my private message to you, I'm also from Ozamiz City.

THanks and GOD bless to everyone!


"Love is patient; love is kind

and envies no one.

Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;

never selfish, not quick to take offense.

There is nothing love cannot face;

there is no limit to its faith,

its hope, and endurance.

In a word, there are three things

that last forever: faith, hope, and love;

but the greatest of them all is love."

~Bible~

Thank You oh my GOD for everything!
