A Long Time Coming

Sorry been MIA for awhile but I've good news!


The MR & MRS are finally TOGETHER!


God's willing, my visa came through relatively fast on the 20th of October (ie 7 days!) despite all the dramas that went down in the application process. You've no idea how excited I was when I finally had my passport and visa in hand. I was just so glad that the road for us to be together are finally cleared and all that's keeping me away now is that one-way air ticket to Liverpool.
Thanks to Air Asia X, I managed to grab a reasonable deal to fly into London Stanstead on 12th November. That gave me a reasonable 3 weeks between the day I got my visa to the day I leave the country. However, another bump in my plans was to get a tax clearance letter from the IRB. Bargh!!! I'm 2 weeks into my stay in Liverpool and I've yet to get that sorted! I've done my bits of the process at the IRB branch office before I left, but getting feedbacks from them just take ages! At least the follow-up process I can get my mum to do it for me. (Thank you mummy!)

But other than that, life has been good. The 2 weeks leading up to my departure was filled with dinner plans with a bunch of my ex-colleagues and friends. And I only started packing 2 days before because... well, I'm just too laid-back like that. (*winks*) A bunch of hugs and tears and goodbyes and 13-hours of  (surprisingly comfortable) flying time later, I'm in chilly London!!


Seasons Greeting from Manchester Christmas Market!!
