    My visa's validity date is on the 10th thursday and CFO for UK is scheduled MWF, so I'm attending the seminar on the 11th in Cebu, and i will be staying there till my flight on Tuesday night.Why Tuesday? It's because I'm giving one working day allowance in case there would be concerns or delay in getting CFO sticker.That's why I decided to book my flight with Cathay Pacific and British Airways from Cebu to HK -LHR-EDIN,away from NAIA's Tanim bala scare.I can't afford anymore delays.

    12days more and I will be in my new home & will be celebrating my birthday and Christmas with Mr.Nickel.

    How very exciting, Nickel. Just so you know, you attend the CFO counselling MWF but can get your sticker at any working day and working hours.

    It's good you'll be taking off MIA. Have a safe and enjoyable trip.

    Yes @Anne I actually called up CFO cebu after an hour when I register because it says registration successful, but can't find it .Good that the man who I talked to was kind enough to tell me its in my spam folder.
    I have enough time of relaxing in my hotel room then before flying.
    Only thing that bothers me now is, I forgot to add a few kilos on my baggage allowance, i only have 27 kls . total allowable weight. I'm sure I will be sorting my things over and over again and just bring with me the" most important and usable stuff ".

    Actually I will just be wearing my ankle high boots and a flat doll shoes in my handbag to be used while flying,and will leave the rest,as there's really no room for them.Goodbye to my comfy shoes ..:(
