I just got off the phone with Milagros, she's headed over to St Luke's already to be the first one in line and get a priority number..

I feel so bad that she had to wake up so early and wait outside.. Usually whenever we talk on the phone she is so bubbly and happy.. Oh my gosh, it's going to be such a long day for her. I can only hope that everything goes well.. Please God, help my angel get through the day.. :innocent:

I just spoke with her again, she said there's just a sea of people.. The guard made an announcement about having an original copy of the invitation letter.. We didn't receive that and I hope they won't send her back home..

I told her to just provide them with the MNL case # and tell them that they never sent us a copy.. Here's hoping it goes smooth.. :thumbs:

BTW - Rebtel rocks, very clear and easy to use. I just call a local number and it routes me to her phone.. Wow, ayuz!

Yeah, I've seen the sea of people there on a Monday morning. Not fun.

+1 on the Rebtel advice. My wife tried it last night and she's hooked. So much for our local international carrier...Qwest.

Salamat, I'm hoping it's a smooth ride for her.. We spoke about a half hour ago, and she told me to call back later..

I just signed up for it today and just love Rebtel.. Pricing isn't too bad, and I like the fact that I can just call her from my mobile without any pins or any of that nonsense.. I have a strong feeling we will use this same service when she's finally here to call friends & family back home..

I'm just a little under 5 weeks from seeing her again, and I just can't wait.. :thumbs:

Thanks Jared! That's good news and that means all the VJ advice about early medical is spot-on! :thumbs:

good luck...hopefully she will be able to get through it fairly fast. I think the way the flow goes if there isnt too many people she should be done by lunch...but of course on mondays i think you can throw that out the window. My wife will be going tomorrow to get her shots....she only gets 2 from what they said at St. Lukes. They will do age appropriate shots. Some they wont give because they are part of a series that takes time to go through. I'm sure everything will go good for her. Tell her to go to Robinson's Mall and eat a good meal. :thumbs:

LOL, I think I'll have to pull the trigger on that pink netbook we've been talking about for her flight here.... :-) :rofl:

I got an SMS from her about an hour or so ago... Now it's just waiting for the "i'm going back to the hotel for the day after I fetch some lunch".. :thumbs:

She will be alright, lots of people get shots, it will be over in a jiffy.

Only a few more weeks until you're in each others arms again... Good luck and God bless. :star:


This is the first account I made in VJ, back when I was with my first boyfriend whom I met online. He visited me in 2010. Unfortunately, we broke up early 2011 before we could finish filing for a tourist visa (let alone start a fiancee visa)... We are still friends, though. :thumbs:

Late 2011, I fell in love with a co-worker who was based overseas. He visited me on March 2012 and also proposed during the same trip (he does not like to waste time haha :dance: ). Now we are on our K-1 journey and I am the happiest woman in the world. (L):star::luv::)

It sounds like St Luke's is a madhouse today and I imagine she'll have to go back for shots and whatnot.. I'm hoping it all goes smooth.. Not only is she going to Robinson's for lunch but I heard she's going to buy the world's biggest ice cream sundae! :blush:

Ahhh I miss her so much, can't wait to go and see her in May!

Thanks for your kind words!!

So she should be getting ready to go there now...looking for the good news.......My wife just got her shots. She said she has to wait for about 45 mins more for releasing. My wife said the line was pretty long for immunizations...but she was there just before lunch and had to wait for the cashier.
