4 more days before flying off to Japan, and this it the real deal.
I actually received my COE (Certificate of Eligibility) while I was traveling in Japan, instead of receiving it by DHL or Fedex, which was the normal way.
Didn’t expect to receive when I went to the office to visit them even though I have yet to enter the company.
After arriving back in Singapore, I rushed whatever documents I need to prepare for the application, and rushed off to the Embassy in 30 minutes as the application at the Embassy was closing at 12pm. Managed to reach in time, and am very thankful to the staff who was very lenient when I had forgotten to photocopy a set of COE for them. And within 5 days, I received my visa.
While I was applying for my visa, I bombarded my friend with loads of questions as she has been through this, and I’m very thankful to her for answering my queries fast when she’s at work.
Another 4 more days, and to be honest, I’m feeling a little jittery because of the unknown ahead of me, and thinking about the things that I have to prepare and do, I’m not sure if I can manage it well.
Started my round of farewell parties, and 4 more days of party to go! There’s alot of friends I would like to meet up before flying off, but because of the time constraint, I’m doing with a few groups. I guess I’ll grow fat from all the eating for the next few days until I fly off. Will be trying my best to cover food that I would really want to eat before flying off, if not I guess I will have to wait till February when I come back.
I guess that’s about this short post!
Will post more about the application process and things to do in Japan the next few days!
