Filipino time, Swiss time, American time, what’s the difference?

For those who didn’t know, Janjan and I went to Manila last Monday morning and we got back here in Davao last Thursday night. I had an interview for getting a “Live and Work Visa” for Sweden. The interview was great but the result was not great lol. I need to wait for a couple of months to get the result. The Manila Consulate will send my application to Bangkok Consulate then the later will send my application to Sweden. Actually, there is no Consulate General of Sweden in Manila. The Swiss Consulate agreed to entertain applicants in behalf of Sweden but they are not allowed to decide or release any visas for Sweden. They will only accept applicants, interview them and then send those applications in Bangkok Consulate General of Sweden. But if you are in a hurry, you can directly apply any visas for Sweden in Bangkok.

Anyway, before the interview, I need to pay my application at the Bangkok Bank at Ayala Ave., Makati City, but the place for interview was far from the bank, I need to ride a taxi to get in there. My interview was supposed to be at 2:30 p.m. but my name was called at 4:00 p.m. and we finished almost 6:00 o’clock in the evening. Grrrrrrr. That’s why I told myself that Swiss time and Filipino time are the same but not American time. Lol.

Well, that’s all for now I guess, and I will continue this on the next post.
