I will be having my biometric (finger print) on Thursday, two days from now. That is for the removal of my conditional permanent residency. We (hubby and me) mailed the application and two days after USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) mailed me the Receipt Notice. Six days after the Receipt Notice, they mailed me the Biometric Schedule and there I have it on Thursday. Hubby will be absent for half day plus because my schedule is twelve o'clock and it's not that near in our location now. Hopefully it will turn out good. Okay, I gotta go to go laundry since the weather turn out good already today. Yesterday it rained all day long, I was glad it's not that heavy but due to it, I postponed my laundry chore. So bye for now and see yah later diary.. I have to make my steps for other chores for today after eating.

If you noticed folks that my name Cacai got changed to Cacai M. , that is because I saw and found out that there's also a Cacai blogger name here and I just want to make my name something unique and not common. Well, am glad that I have a common name but as I said, it's something you know.. So at least I inform you guys that it's me still the same. Some said if I have another blog 'coz I have another name used (sorry folks for not telling you first before I use it). I have also used CacaiNad on some other social networking and I want it to change to the first one to make it only one name. So what I did is that I requested the webmaster 'coz I can't chang
e it as easy as snap, so hopefully no more CacaiNad only Cacai M. . And yeah, there's one it's CacaiM2007 in Youtube 'coz the one I want which was I mentioned is taken already, well, YouTube is a famous one and lots subscribers they have. Hopefully this Cacai M. will be free.. hahah. I mean, I hope no one uses this name only me. So that's all about this aside from my maiden name was changed to my marriage name. I tell you guys, the time that I changed my status after I got married (from single/fiancee to married) it's some kind of expensive. The story went like this, when you registered or applied for an application to change status there's that an application form that you have to signed-in, right? Because we(my husband and me) didn't get a lawyer (I insisted it) 'coz I thought I can do it from figuring it out , well then it's just a personal questions so it's not that hard, just read thoroughly in USCIS website, follow the instructions carefully, type, print and do the requirements. It's just that my name in the application is still my maiden name, I thought it will be automatically transferred 'coz I had my requirements with it but then as the notice arrived before the green card will be mailed (notice first then, followed on the following days the green card- that's the process), it's my maiden name in it! Whew! I got it at Saturday and I wanna call them (it's Friday came afternoon came at the mailbox) at Monday but I haven't 'coz it's in the mailbox already, weheheh... So then, I had my maiden name as my surname. We (hubby and me) decided to let it change to my current last name so we pass again an application to change it. It cost 300+ bucks that time (11 days after my first application it's 1 thousand+ bucks already) is the payment and did the process again, the requirements, biometric, interview, and so on and so forth. Well, I didn't regret though 'coz we still save some bucks compared to getting an attorney. I just share this as a tip and reminder to the new ones that when you applied for the change of status and wants to follow the married name, be sure to put in the change status application the married name already if you wanna save time, money, and effort. Hope I have given you some tips fellas, friends, ladies, and all. Am I making sense folks? Well then, have a pleasant start of the week for tomorrow everyone! (~_~)

Last January 21 this year my friend(close friend) called me on the 11th hour that she needs me to be her witness for her status change from conditional permanent resident to permanent resident. As what we have know that as a fiancee entry, such person with the fiance has to be married or wed legally in here(America) so they could enjoy each others arms for life as a couple within three (3) months of arrival here. With that, after the wedding or before the three(3) months period the fiancee that has became a wife or the couple has to adjust the status of one's residency to be able to continue her existence as a legal resident. Moreover, 3 months before she was accepted as a legal alien or a conditional permanent resident- the couple has to remove the conditional status for the wife or husband(either of which who is an alien) for permanent residency. So this is where my friend lands for her status as a legal resident as I said to be able to be with each other for we know that- that's what a couple is, right? To be with each other wherever the other one is. (There's some exemption of this concept though.) To continue, I called my husband and told him for I don't like to go anywhere without him knowing. And here came, they (the couple-our couple friend, mother of the husband- which is the other witness dropped off at our house to get me to go to the attorney's office for the witness seal. They informed me the process and so on. So, we're already there at the office and minutes after the couple were called by the attorney, and they did the talking and we (the witnesses) did the signature after writing the witness form. But boom! the attorney didn't recognize me as a witness for I have a different specimen signature on my identification.. waaaaaahhh..!!! what a shame on me! Am sleepy though 'coz I had an overtime on my blogging- sleepless night. But that's not an excuse! Am dumb! huh! What a shame on me! I felt emotional on my self after the incident and that is because this is my first time of it that didn't match! It's of the same stroke but the content isn't! My surname got change though... I was used with my maiden name so the characters on my specimen signature got change too. But... Ohh my! This got bothered me from afternoon till my husband went home early from his work because he was worried on me as I said to him it can't remove on my mind! toink.. but that really is the truth. Well I got bothered because I remembered that when I was on my school years in the Philippines even when am still at high school, am very particular of the signature and the spelling and I make it sure that it is well-written before I show it to the concern person or the teacher itself. I can still remember that I was the favorite of my teachers to do the checking because am very particular and good with it. But with this incident now.. wheeeww! Where that concept is? huh! Anyway, that's a lesson for me. And I will really marked it on my mind and it will never be happen again. That's a promise to myself. Pretty good lesson, huh?
