Hey guys,

After two years of waiting, my visa has been approved today. The CO was very very nice, she was answering her own questions and then laugh!!!!haha.. I didn't feel like i was on hot seat for she was making me feel at ease.

I brought tons of supporting documents but she and the pre-screener did not even asked for one piece except the photo album which i gave to the pre-screener voluntarily.

Thank you so so so much VJ's..
