One GOOD One BAD
The Good :)
Hello everyone, I've past my driving license this morning. Heee... I made myself to take the exam one day earlier as planned. Really glad I don't have to go there early morning anymore. Well, decided not to write the compain letter. 得饶人处且饶人. Anyway, I just did my complain verbally to the lady, actually just to remind her never repeat this mistake again of other people.
I was calm today. Too tired to feel anxious. Do what I've done during the lesson last Saturday. It was after the exam that my hand felt cold. -_-"
The examiner asked me to go in front to him.
He suddenly said, "Kekkou desu". (That's enough).
"??" I couldn't really get what he meant.
"Yang san unten umai ya na~" (Yong, you drive very well.) Now I think I know his real meaning.
Really?? Is that mean I past??
"Nan de konna ni umaku naru na~" (Hmm... how come you become so good in driving).
Hmm... I told him I attended a driving lesson on Saturday. I guessed it was a good decision I made.
Phew!!! I was sooooo happy. It was like a heavy burden on my shoulder suddenly gone.
"Yoku yatta yo! Kore kara mo kono choshi de unten shite kudasai ne." (Great job! Hope from now on you keep you driving this way).
After 4 hrs of waiting, I finally had my licence hand over to me. \^o^/
Meet my Japanese driving license. Heee... very different from one in Malaysia huh~ In fact, u can even open a bank account by using driving license in Japan.
This would be one of my proud achievement in Japan, after all the way I have gone through. Otsukaresama deshita, fish fish! Kekeke...
The Bad :(
While I was still in the mood of appreciating the new license, I came back to the lab and found my visa EMS has arrived. That's fast.
Happily, I opened the envelope.
My heart sinked down half when I saw something that is unexpected.
The expiration date of my visa, is 17 July 2005!! OMG!! How come? If so, will that mean I have to stay illegally from 18 July onward? My oral presentation is on 18 July!!
I tried to track for the information about the visa stuff. It stated in the homepage of the US embassy that the length of the visa not equivalent of the length I can stay in US. Hmmm... in fact my sensei said he also heard about this rule.
The statement is as below :
Please note: The length of the visa does not equate to a length of stay. When you enter the United States, you will be inspected by an officer of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. They will determine the amount of time you will be permitted to remain in the U.S. Extensions of stay will be approved only for unexpected or compelling humanitarian reasons. The maximum extension period of stay for travelers entering with a B visa is 6 months.
I am very confused now. I just faxed a letter to the embassy about the doubt. But I wonder if they will feed back as the site quoted to ask a question, it will be charged. Expensive indeed. -_-"
Anyone of you out there, can help me to solve this doubt? Thank you so much.
Why is it always like this? The process always not smooth? My friend was saying to me "Fish Fish, 好事多磨"
I hope she is right.
I'm going to meet Sylvia in the town soon now. To munch on a 7-scoop for 500yen Hagen Daaz.
Ar~ I need to release my stress now.
