Progress...

Salam...

This week is really tiring...alhamdulillah i've finished doing the executive summary for the curriculum review...tomorrow i'll be attending the curriculum review meeting for the whole day...I'm giving my helping hands to the department before I further my studies in January 2010...InsyaAllah...just to contribute back to my beloved department...:-)...

This morning I went to Immigration Department in Kajang to do my passport together with hubby...Gosh...There were so many people...we took our queue number at around 9am...my number was 1128 and hubby's was 1129...at that time, the number in process was 1060!!...we had to wait for 68 people to submit their form before we can submit our form...but luckily we went there together...so there were so many things to be discussed and talked about...hehe...mcm la kat umah tak sembang kan...kuikui...so after about 2 hours waiting, we managed to submit our forms and pay the fee...rm300 for 32 pages...and we had to wait until 1.30 pm until we can take another queue number to take the passport...okla...seperti yg dijanjikan siap dlm 2 hours...we went to have our lunch together and went to the nearby KWSP office to check our KWSP accounts...we were so surprised by the amount available in the account...alhamdulillah...ada juga simpanan di hari tua nanti...

At around 1 pm, we went back to the immigration dpmt...Lucky us...we didn't have to wait until 1.30 pm...our passports were already available for collection...so, this is the first time I ever have my own passport!!!..hahahaha...

OK...so the next stage is to apply for Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS)...For individual who wish to enter the UK to further their studies, they need to apply for this ATAS clearance...It is used to help stop the spread of knowledge and skills that could be used in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (this definition is taken from ATAS Office Website)...only after obtaining its approval I can apply for my VISA...

This ATAS process will take around 5-10 working days...and even longer for Chemical Engineering course...huhuh...my programme of study is under Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science..so it seems that I have to wait for...say 2 weeks??..huhuh...I've registered for the application of ATAS just now..so now I can just wait until they give me the password...cepat2 la dpt email from the office...I want to settle this asap....

Apart from that, I've asked around for the house rent in Manchester...the most suitable place up to this point would be the Cheetam Hill...but i haven't finalized it yet..since there is another option...so the progress of house searching is only 20%...since I feel it is still early...and I don't have to rush to find a house...yeker??..haha...

Ok...I think it's better for me to stop now...since I need enough sleep to gain back my energy for tomorrow meeting...Ok peeps...that's all for now...

Wassalam...and gudnite...
