Off To Canada Soon

A friend of mine share d a good news today.  She and her son were approved for visa to Canada.  They filed their application for visa two years ago and, finally, they were scheduled for a medical examination and interview.  Thankfully, everything went well.  Now they are preparing all the things needed for departure.

We worked together in a computer college back home.  Since then, she had been wishing to go abroad.  When the Dean of the school applied for a job in Canada, she got inspired to try it.  She told me that it was not easy for her to prepare the required documents because she has a son and was separated from her husband.  I am very happy that my friend reached a new milestone in her life.

So we talked about our Dean who is in Canada now.  He still keeps in touch with us and gives advice on whatever decision his former subordinates make.  My friend and I told him about the good news.  Of course, he’s happy for her.  If she and her son get to arrive in Canada, he and his family might see her.  That would be a nice idea.

My friend is planning to leave after the holidays since she still needs to train someone who will take her place in the computer college.  Also, she has to wait for the school year to end so it will be easy for her son.  By the time being, they won’t be on her mother’s birthday.  I told my friend that a surprise birthday gift in the mail would be great.  That’s what I did on my mother’s birthday.  I sent a nice clothing from her favorite designer brand and a dozen of fresh roses. I told my friend that she can order bouquets from fleuriste à québec.  There should be no hassle.

Well, congratulations to my dear friend.  May God bless her in the new endeavor.  I sure miss her.

He’s In Canada Now

Hopefully someday I will get the opportunity to visit my friend in Canada.  He lives there for a year now.  We worked together as Instructors in a computer school in the Philippines years back.

He was petitioned by a family in Canada.  Now he is currently working and renting a place in Calgary condos.  I am so happy for my friend because his dream of migrating to Canada, as well as being with his family, came true.  Before he left for the Philippines for a vacation, he invited me and my family to come over and visit whenever we get the chance.

One place that I really wanted to experience, if we go, is the Niagara Falls in Canada.  I received lots of post cards and pictures from online friends who were there.  Just looking at the magnificent Niagara Falls in pictures makes me anxious.
