My extension of visa & insurance are finally settled. Thank goodness. Another dark heavy cloud breaks into pieces and made my mind sky clearer.
Oh yeah. That’s the ORDINARY isn’t it? You get what you’ve worked for, basically. But not that easy. After being trialed & tested, that’s it. So. After I went to Immigration last week right after I noticed my visa is closing to its due and my application got rejected just because I have no PROOF neither nor GUARANTOR to convince the officers & the systems WHY I need to be here for another year, I’ve been through A LOT.
Thanks to those who keeps listening & supporting me all these while. To be exact, these people are on my Yahoo! Messenger, which are thousand miles away from me, distanced by oceans but we’re together through all the hardships. Thanks guys. Not really the neighbors or people next door or even in the next city. Sorry to mention that.
Back to the story. My application rejected because I have no STEADY PROOF to be here. I need a letter of guarantee or a letter of explanation from the college or at least from any academic advisor (must be someone who really know me, MUST be) to enable the procedures. Being in darkness all alone (actually got another friend to hear & share), I came to an idea to issue the matter to my “daddy” (well, my lab-supervisor-to-be, my former class teacher he was, my dad-to-be-called sensei) asking for his help.
I asked him if he could make any written document citing that I’m his student, in his research laboratory by this April, so that’d be MORE than enough to prove it. I emailed him, didn’t get a chance to tell him face to face due to my bad health condition yesterday and he replied me within couple of hours after my email sent stating that he will accompany me all the way to Immigration. My Goodness! I feel like I’m already in tears. He really treat me like his daughter. All the praises to Him.
So, this morning I went to his lab and we went together to the Immigration, as what’ve being planned. He didn’t prepare any letter, any document rather than my latest result (officially not released yet, but since he’s the Head of Applied Chemistry Course, he’d have it anytime he wants).
We walked half way while I thought we will walk until the place – that won’t be any problem with me though I’m not fully recovered yet, but it gives us more time to talk to each other, coz after all he’s gonna be my supervisor right? But he suggested to take a taxi and “great”, he paid the fare. And then we arrived and when it comes to our turn, I need not to explain much to the officer as he figured it out faster than I thought and my daddy’s presence being so much help until I only need to say yes or no.
But I have to write a letter of explanation, by myself. The letter consisting of the reasons I need an extension of a year, my plan during in that period & the expected date I’ll be graduated. I felt bad letting my daddy waiting me to rough the letter, because I took longer time to write with my dizzy head. But the officer convinced me I’ll get my visa extension cleared.
Thank goodness. Thanks daddy. You’ve taken care me a lot along these 4 years. And I can’t deny the fact I’ll trouble you in my 5th year TOO. Sorry but thanks. Thanks friends on messenger. That’s why I need to keep you guys insight. Even though we’re not chatting, it’s enough to see you guys there, online for me. That’s more than a support. Love you all 🙂
