Just stand your ground that you are a tourist. If you blink, they will think you are lying.I think Filipinos are profiled everywhere not just with the Philippine immigration. Its a fact we have to accept.

Wasn’t this the same lady you wanted to bring out as live-in maid? Perhaps immigration were onto something here…. :D :D

haha, well yes it was the same lady but we had no intention of employing her as a maid at that time. Having taken good advice from this forum we realised that if she wanted to work for us as a maid she would have to return to the Philippines to start the process.

It is a Friday right, we start the holiday's tomorrow :wink:

let's not go there, now .. for me, most visa processing is 30 days or more .. then ? can you beat that ? :D

I mean, in Asean, except Singapore, where things are bit tighter, the rest of the Asean countries aren't so bothered ..
