    since serene is away somewhere (and yet refuses to deliver my bubble pack) i shall answer for her.

    the visa people are surprisingly quite particular; they want all the supporting documents in and the information in the form must be complete. so to avoid making wasted trips down to robinson road, call them up to check first, although it only helps a little, and then cut down on the number of wasted trips made. voila!

    8 hours to work... ARGH

    Eh don't bring the bubble wrap into this!

    Anyway I got rejected twice. First because of a typo error in my temporary confirmation letter, secondly because of lack of convincing supporting documents. They hate me Now's pretty much peak period so I think it'll take longer, maybe a week?

    btw Knogle: I'm working in Raffles Hotel.

    What kind of typo error was that?! :eek:

    And what do they mean by "lack of convincing supporting documents"? :confused:

    val: you mean The Sam? she's probably too busy watching some colin firthed show to use the computer. i'll tell her to come the next time i see her.

    i'm pretty stressed out with full time work and all that packing. also, my itinerary is so bloody complicated and my grandma wants me to clear out of my room. ok, enough grumbling, i'll spare you the details. oh oh and thanks to clearing my room, i have discovered loads of memorabilia, and nostalgy has kicked in.

    knogle: no thanks from a poor student. can i decorate yours instead just to get that extra few pounds?

    If it's going to cost 95 quid then it's a service this poor student can do without...hahaha...

    CMS: I'm willing to do the deco AND wash the windows on weekends :P:

    The visa centre in KL was staffed by mainly indians...while I don't mean to sound at all racist, I had a HARD time trying to interpret what they were saying through some HEAVY accents...'in my mind' somehow became 'marmite' and for some reason, I actually wrote it down as one of the items to bring...sigh...
