Recommended Posts

Today is 520(means I love you in chinese), a love day , and the first day the consulate reopen for the visa interview. Lucky me ^^

This morning at around 10:40 am, my visa got approved by a pretty asian VOe102.gif She asked a few questions, some of them are kinda LOL, it went pretty quick like less than 10 mins though. All the stuffs like photoalbum i brought ,she didn't even give a peek LOL. I spent a lot of time on making the photoalbum, i was expected she would have a look. Oh well as long as i got approve, that's all matter. Super happy~

I couldn't wait to meet my fiance>.< Im pretty excited. Wish i could jump on the airplane right now. Everyday is getting so much closer now. Yay~
