No no to chicken dance!! I conquer my fear in height. I did the Plunge and Suislide at Danao. SUPER MEGA to the maximum highest level of experience! But I 💛 it!! I can do it again and again and again!! 🙂 I hope my pocket will agree to that LOL. Sound scary pero kinaya ko!!
You can experience the plunge for only Php 700 pesos, with certificate of it once you’ll try it. Suislide on the other hand cost Php 350 pesos naman. It takes 2 hours joy ride from Tagbilaran to Danao Adventure park. Yeah time consuming right? so better be there early if you want to enjoy the place hehe anyway sulit naman 😜
I’m here now!! emotionally ready!! (kunyari lang 😜)
A canyon swing adventure THE PLUNGEattraction mounted over a 200 meter high and 300 meter wide gorge. A person would have to do a 45 meters free fall before being launched on a pendulum swing measuring to a hundred meter diameter. Actually there are lots of activities you can do there like rappelling, root climbing, kayaking and lots of lots of lots of adventure….hehe try to visit E.A.T DANAO for more info 🙂
Today is the day that I will send my Swedish Citizenship application through post, although I already apply it online (it is a requirement and it a must!). I’am a bit nervous about it but at the same time my heart is full with excitement! I can’t help thinking about what will gonna happen next (think positive Michelle!).
Anyway highway! before I decided to apply for my citizenship this year, I did a couple of research on my own because I wanted to make sure if I am really eligible to apply for it. Someone told me I needed to reside here in Sweden for 5 years, some of my friends say 3 years with permanent permit and other say to try my luck and send LOL! I have lot of Filipina friends who had recently applied for their Swedish citizenship and surprisingly their stories where extremely different to one other. Some was approve in only a weeks, some takes months and some still had not yet hear any response to their application. So confused about it so I headed to the Migrationsverket site to gather more information 😉 a 100% detailed I must say LOL. If you like to know more you can check the SITE 👈
Basically what it said in the site is that you have to fullfill a certain requirements for becoming a Swedish citizen:
You must be able to prove your identity
You have reached the age of 18
Have a permanent residence permit, a right of residence or residence card in Sweden.
You have fulfilled the required period of residence here
Have you conducted yourself well here in sweden
* If you are married to, living in a registered partnership with or cohabiting with a Swedish citizen, you can apply for Swedish citizenship after three years. In these cases, you must have been living together for the past two years. It is not enough to be married to one another, you must also live together.
So as you can see its depend on your particular situation, the time prior to applying varies as long as you meet all the criteria. In my case, I have lived with a Swedish citizen for almost three years now, so three years after receiving my Residence Permit I told myself its about time to apply.
As I logged in to Migrationsverket site and see the actual Swedish citizenship application, oh by the way guys! the entire application is in Swedish language 😉 so better get someone to help you up if don’t know the word hahaha. Then the questions is more or less, confirming your basic details like country of residence, address, existing citizenship, etc. They also ask about your current situation if you work/or studying history in Sweden and how much money you’ve made at each particular job something like that. The final question is simply an open text field where you need to write something or if you want to add more information about yourself. then you need to attached you scanned documents.
Along with the online application is that you need to submit to Migrationsverket all the hard copies of documents you sent online such as my original Philippine passport, receipt of the application etc via posten/registry mail which what I am doing right now LOL!.
Applying for citizenship cost us 1,500 sek around 8,872 thousand in peso (as of today’s conversion). so we head up to our nearest ICA store to send it off to Migrationsverket in Norrköping and then all I need to do now is wait for the decision ( Hopping to get a positive one🙏)
I’m a type of girl who really loves fun and adventure, trying out wakeboarding is really new for me but hey! I did it and it was so fun 😊. It was not as scary as I thought but a little complicated for a beginner like me, but other than that it was a fun experience. Another check on my bucket list! Wake boarding makes my trip to Bicol Region so memorable and fun! 😊
We were so lucky that time because the place is not crowded and we have so much time to enjoy the activity (as in want-to-sawa kami as in wakeboarding till you drop). When we visit the place is it currently under renovation due to the typhoon. I’ve noticed some broken cottages,the restaurant roof are unfortunately not well maintained and dilapidated,the glass door on the front desk won’t close properly and the wood is rotten. Sink is broken and wooden locker room is not available. I must say they need a major upgrade and repair of that place. Restaurant was very slow and most of the food in the menu wasn’t available (btw the Chinese Adobois really yummy and affordable). Some of the rooms are close and some of the lake is not operational (under maintenance I guess) in addition for that, the Mayon Volcano is in alert level that time so the place in not jam-packed. (see picture below)
Hello ladies! my today’s post would be my new Kate Spade MINI bag 😉. Yup! I’d been eyeing to get a new bag for quite some time now and I feel that this is the best month to purchase a new one. Lately, I’ve have been always carrying around me my big bag (cross body) which I know is very helpful for me this whole summer and yeah! I carry a lot as in a lot!! hehehe😜. I have summer essentials, water, laptop and school stuffs that I carry everyday on my bag which was giving me a backache and a little hurt on my shoulders so I preferably wanted something smaller, definitely lighter and possibly something hands free this semester break! (I hope *crossedfinger! it will help me minimized to carrying bunch of stuffs! I mean the whole house hehe *just kidding!).
To cut the story short! I purchased it online! There were 3 different color to choose from and I decided to get the Nouveau Neutral that I can say it is Lila in shade because I felt it was so different and clean. So the box came! Grr! As you can tell! I’m not satisfied when I received my parcel/box because as you can see (picture below) damage box!😠. I always buy in Zalando but this is the first time ever I have received a box like this LOL!
Fall is one of my favorite seasons, and I’m so excited that it’s finally here in Sweden😍. Despite how much I love this season, my skin doesn’t agree with it haha! I know I might sound terrible but that is true! I feel like as soon as the weather change to colder, my skin gets more dull,pale and dry 😉. Either way, the summer is now over and when it comes to moving into fall season, I tend to downgrade my handbag to a smaller version (no more big bag for me).
Well, my last STEP before I say “bye Pinas!“. When I got my residence card the consulate reminds me to attend a seminar at CFO (Commission on Filipinos Overseas) to get the CFO CERTIFICATE and EMIGRANT STICKER on my passport (REQUIRED and its a must!!). They inform me that the immigration officer at the airport will check this document together with my visa before my departure so I need to secure and provide these documents.
I wanted to be ready with all the important documents so I apply for my schedule instantly hahaha because, I didn’t want to experience being held for questioning on the day of my departure which is too much hassle or might get worst to be offloaded on my plane!.. which I don’t want to happen on me lol 😃
