Today marks one of the most memorable day of my life. Fellow VJ members thank you for all your support and for patiently answering all my queries. I'm so thrilled to say that my visa is approved and not only that I made some new friends today and the funny part is two of them will also go in San diego and their fiance's are also in the military. How cool is that? Of course I will not forget the almighty God who is always there for me no matter what and my family who never stop supporting me.

Last night I was so afraid because of some military docs that I don't have and thanks to my fiance's chief who helped us out.... and yeah that document save my ####... ;)

Before going to the embassy me and my family went to Baclaran Church we pray and lighted up some candles. The feeling is different and I lifted everything to God I know he will guide me. :)

I went at the embassy around 6am and yes! Theres a long line already. Thanks to Kath a friend that is also a member here and we accidentally met at st. Lukes she grab me and let me cut the line. They let us go inside by 7:30 am and sadly they have technical problems that's why I got to finished at 2pm.

The pre-screener is quite harsh I must admit I got intimidated by her. She asked for my nbi, BC, cenomar, the rest of my supporting documents. She also asked about my student visa before, it's a good thing that I brought my old passport and the docs for my f1 visa. She interrogated me and asked a lot of things especially about what I did when I went to US before not only that she asked me when and how did me and my fiance met, how many times did he visited me, where did he stay?, what's his job?, etc. We ended our chit chat by her looking at our pictures and saying that we are young couple and my fiance is handsome. *blushed :)

We've waited for so long and time goes by our numbers are not yet to be called until they announced that we should take our lunch first then go back by 12:45pm and when they said go back by 12:45 pm be sure to be there on time coz they will resumed the interview immediately. I saw my number at the board and I proceed to the window that was assigned to me. I said Good afternoon to the consul and he greeted me back he was so cool and easy to talk to, it's like I am just chatting to a friend. He asked me if I've ever been into US, and I said yes and I said to him my student visa journey, the school that I went to, my sponsor. He did asked about our pictures, emails, remittances. He just look at our pictures and when he saw the caption about tagaytay he said that he will go there tomorrow and I told him that he should try bulalo. He even asked me about how did my fiance courted me and what did made me say yes to him. (Awkward) hehehe next, he saw our engagement party pictures and again he did asked me about what happened there. He stamped cancelled to my old visa...smiled at me then he said the magic words. "CONGRATULATIONS" ohhh...hello goose bumps, my inner Goddess is screaming for joy. Hehehehe

All in all it was a very tiring, nerve racking but superb feeling until now I can't believed that I am one step closer to be reunited with my hunny bunny.
