dear all. after much waiting....almost 9mths, they reject me again. was a bit down at first but after a few week, i decided to appeal. i went to the 'meet the people session' with my wife. told my story to this very kind lady Dr Coral Lai. she understand my situation is pretty complicating but is willing to help me all the way even if the appeal is rejected again. for now, the letter she wrote for me will be handed over to Mr Iswaran to sign, after which ICA will decide and reply me, dunno when...haha. mentally torturing and tires me but its my own doing.

thinking of going down to cmpb to see if they will enlist a ex-pr. is me too eager? cool it, will keep your updated.

sharkfung, it always seems darkest before the dawn. Here's hoping you have some success. It's not going to be easy and it's going to take a bit of time even if you are successful. You may get lucky.

why don't you just continue to work on an EP while waiting for the PR. I mean if you keep perservering, I am pretty sure they will eventually give you hints as to how to rectify the situation. Worst case scenario, wait till you are >40 yo before applying. CMPB will definitely not be interested in you by then!

time for a update and i am here coz still will be waiting. this time is EP issue and itz a nightmare like 2 yrs ago...kind of expected it. like 2yrs ago, my company will appeal for me. now keeping my finger crossed. u see 'ps' , itz so scary, even my 11yrs working here cannot guarantee an EP. don't even dare to think of PR after 40...haha. but by than god knows what will happen.

anyway.....finally got to meet our west coast MP few mths ago. had a 10min session with Mr Iswaran. he knew my case is complicated but not hopeless. he say i am lucky already since i still can get my EP while many others was denied. he told me to be patient with the PR thingy and go back to him in future when my situation is more substantial. kind of knew what he meant. i must play my part too.hahaha...and he also promise next time is no more ICA....he will bring my case to the Home Affair. really appreciate his time for the people. not me but my singaporean grrl.

there is still so much task for me to settle for my company. and this EP issue is really affecting my performance. hope it will be over soon.

Congratulations on this. Be happy you are not separated and forced to leave at least.
