971 ~ Got my 1st single-entry visa to Korea ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ’“

F I N A L L Y ! ! ! Thank you Lord โ™ก

Sharing this good news to everyone โ˜†

Back story: Before I’m just the girl who read blogs and watch vlogs about traveling to South Korea. Yes, I have read and watched tons of it!! I even make notes ๐Ÿ™ˆ I also tried to apply last year but I got so afraid to be denied so I just kept my application and watch kdramas to help me move on. Then huhu okaaay this is it, my fangirl soul is really happy to have a korean visa *insert this is the moment ๐ŸŽค* (first time sparkling kilig moments) #simplejoys๐Ÿ˜‰

My friend and I were very very anxious because of my COE, I’m only in my 5th month on being employed – on probationary period(!!) when I applied for my visa. Though, the usual they will say that you must ensure you have more than 6 months or 6 months at least in your job for you to have a “strong tie” in your country, yet I still pushed through it (YOLO lol coz we already booked for our tickets last May 2018). Nonetheless, Your COE must have the complete details of your company/institution that the Embassy is requiring so you will have no problem. As for me, I tried to pass my COE w/o salary compensation and the agency did not accept my application. On my 2nd attempt, I didn’t know that my company’s email address is not included in my COE but still I submitted it anyway, huuu luckily they accepted it ~ as long as it has valid contact telephone numbers.

So what else is in my application for me to get a granted visa that may be helpful to you? (I heard you, so here it is)

  • Applied for 4 days stay (leisure / vacation) *just to be safe*
  • Budget: 800 USD
  • Has travel history in my passport, SG 2016, HK 2014 (excpt Saudi 2016-2017 for work)
  • Of course, ITR, COE, funds, Bank statement and Bank certificate
  • Applied visa together, with a friend who went to Korea (April 2018) and has strong tie in the Phil(employed too). Hi Grace~
  • Applied in TravelPros in SM Megamall with a fee of P700 for korean visa processing(lol not sponsored๐Ÿคฃ)


Check out these links for more info:




๐Ÿ‡ Work hard to have a travel fund.

๐Ÿ‡ Pray diligently everyday and imagine you are getting there.

Now I’m researching again for sample itineraries in Korea hehe I’m so excited!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Aja! Fighting!! Goodluck to your application too โ˜†โ˜†โ˜†

Hey! How have you been?

Time flies really faaaaaaast, waaah โ—‹.โ—‹

Hello August!! 8/12 โ—.โ—

I’ve been on a hiatus here for more than a week without a note because I was so caught up with my business again perhaps.. ? ok ehem excuses.. I’m sorry.. But I hope you are continually practising to be grateful daily even though it’s super duper hard in our world right now..

There’s a lot of earthquakes, floods, and killings.. HUHU it’s terribly heartbreaking as always but we need to move forward, pray for them, and fight for our lives.

I do hope that you’re pampering yourself enough by simply choosing not to focus much to all the “negatrons” in your life.

I have two goooooood newwwws, friends! Just bear with me for now as I compose my blogposts for you, guys hehe(f na f ko talaga nuh lol haha). I’m really extra thankful for all the blessings that I am receiving this month!!!! Thank You Lord! ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท

Doodling Ms. Nichols’ message for everybody. “Keep trusting and waiting to see what the Lord has in store for us.”

~ Time to sleep coz I need to be early for work tomorrow.

Goodnight, my friend. I miss you ๐Ÿ‡

You can’t buy happiness but you can eat cookies!!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

I’m supposed to eat this one at a time, like every after meals…….. but in less than 4 hours….. it’s like magic – all ๐Ÿช in my tummy hahaha ang sherep kasi – okaaay self, cheat day ulit!!!?? ๐Ÿช๐Ÿช๐Ÿชโคโคโค

Thank u ate โ™ก

Huhu.. It’s terribly hard to control yourself if you know you’re a chocolate loooooverrrr and a cooky monster. However, discipline is the key, self. You’ve started this already, so there’s no turning back again hahaha road to 53 kgs! Healthy living * Leggo ~


So instead of punishing myself (lol cookies pa more), I’ll considered this as my reward for being braver yesterday. Braver???? Yes, I conquered a bit of my fear of rejection by applying for a visa. *small win yeah*

I did my preparations last year, see previous archive August 2017 posts, but end up not passing them all, huuuuu 1st attempt fail, coz my fear of having a declined visa had won over me. Anyhow, thank you for pushing yourself to submit your docs yesterday!!!! Again, I’m trusting the process. Lifting to God my worries/frustrations. *declaration: I will claim our SK visa next week and repeat* ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜

Thank you Lord for today ๐Ÿ’ž

esp to your reminder and whispers ~

Always be grateful ๐ŸŒท
