Hello Visa

Arrived very early in the morning, with not enough sleep. But I had to wake up early to get a number and secure my visa. It was quite a while, but the guard was nice to me. He exchanged my number to 2 instead of the one I got and so I got to finish transaction early. Went back to my hotel and slept until the afternoon.

In the afternoon I came back to get my passport with my visa on it.. no sweat.. Thank you very much.. See you in the morning Myanmar..

Leaving on Mother’s Day

Mother’s day. The saddest day of my life. But today is also the beginning of something exciting for me and my daughter. I was supposed to report for work last May 7, but the school had problems meeting with paperwork that is why it is delayed. I have to be in school by Monday, but I still have to get my visa from the embassy in Thailand on Monday so I would be much delayed.

My family and I had a crazy celebration of Mother’s Day this year, and all entailed travels for both me and my mother. She had to cut short her activities in their Alumni homecoming to come home to see me before I leave, and me, leaving the country. So instead of going to posh dining places, we had to make sure I am not late for my flight. We ended up eating in this cozy beachfront eatery, with less people and ordinary diners not even dressed for the occasion. I guess most diners of the place just stop by to eat and go — mostly travelers. But even though it was the set up, it was still the best place to celebrate Mother’s day at..

Our last meal together before I left.. and of course, picture below before I flew..

 

No goodbyes, just, see you again soon Mi Familia.. and to my baby girl, see you in Facebook later.. Technology will always help bring families together, unlike before where it was really a problem..
