Report to IPAMS Office (December 14, 2010)

Received a text message from IPAMS' Recruitment yesterday, we're told to drop by the office to fill out some OFW Forms and gave payment for the Visa Sticker. Then we were prepped regarding work conditions in Qatar. Also advised us to follow everything on the list which was sent to us.

Employment Offer (December 12, 2010)

I wasn't expecting any emails today because it's a Sunday. But then it's a habit to check my mailbox once in awhile. I saw 1 new message... it's from Qatar Airways! Then I realized that, Sunday is their first day of work!

Just got my Employment Offer from QR! I'm leaving on January 29, 2011. Then I did print the forms sent, and immediately asked my hubby to sign as witness, as well as my Dad. Mixed emotions brought me to tears :( I will miss my family so much :( I won't be home that often :( But sometimes, things need to change for the better. I want to have a bright future and for my family. I really don't know where to find strength and courage to decide right on, I need this job, it's for my own growth.

The long wait is over (December 9, 2010)

It was a Thursday. I've been nervous for this whole recruitment thing, added another issue regarding my facial scars. I really am not sure whether they will approve it or not, because for all I know, Qatar Airways' is very strict on skin complexion. So around 2 PM, I checked my email, and then I'm so afraid of what I'll read inside the inbox... It's an email from Qatar Airways'.... Here's a screen shot....

Yahoo!! I'll be leaving on January 29, 2011! Though there's a condition that if my 7 degree Scoliosis Condition would worsen, QR won't be liable of any complications in the near future. So I confirmed this email and Ms. Barbie emailed that my Offer of Employment will arrive thru email next week! :) I'm so happy because most of us got the Golden Email!!! :) Thank you God :) Everyone's so happy! :) I'm fortunate to have them :) Though whenever I think of leaving it saddens me as well :( I'll be missing them, especially my hubby :( I'll just have to enjoy the rest of my days here :) The great part is that I'd spending Christmas and New Year 2011 here with them :) To God Be the Glory :)

QR Update (December 7, 2010)

I'm supposed to head out, buy something at Shopwise, then I received a phone call from an unknown number. I wasn't expecting a call from QR right away! It's Ms. Barbie :) She's so kind enough to give me a call to give me a feedback regarding the previous photos I sent them. The birthmark on my stomach, upper left arm, birthmoles are approved by their grooming department, because everything is hidden, not visible whilst in uniform. And as per Chinese Mole Meanings, A mole on the back of a lady’s knee reveals one who will have excellent interpersonal skills and enjoy good relationships with most people! Haha! Kudos to that! But the only picture she wants me to retaken is my profile. Because I was wearing make up on it, the grooming department wants nothing on, but nude. Ms. Barbie even informed me that my facial scars aren't too visible because it's not too deep to be noticed. After that, my hubby had a photoshoot once again, my chickenpox scars as his subject! Harhar! :D Then I emailed it right away. After a few hours she emailed back that we'll be informed once QR's grooming department gives feedback regarding my issue... Crossed fingers on this part :)

IPAMS' Update (December 6, 2010)

Though I'm in cloud 9, I still doubt whether SM Lazo will forward my Medical Results right on. I stayed home, prepared necessary paper works in the office regarding SSS, Philhealth and Pag-Ibig Fund Contributions of employees. Then around 2 PM, my hubby received a phone call from Ms. Rocel. She informed me that my Medical Results are forwarded to Qatar Airway's HR Department. Everything was cleared, except for the extremities (an extreme or severe measure) part. The Doctor jot all the birthmarks and scars she saw on my body and face. I was informed as per Ma'am Barbie's, to send them photos of the said flaws immediately to expedite the evaluation process. Ms. Rocel was clueless, because she didn't notice my healed chicken pox scar on my nose, but I'm confident with it, because Ms. Jillian declared on my application beforehand. My hubby is supportive enough to take shots of my birthmark on my left stomach, upper left arm, chicken pox scars on my nose, left and right cheeks, as well as my birthmoles at the back of my left leg and below my armpit. We were laughing our hearts out, because he knows that I hate to be taken pictures with, I ain't photogenic enough to satisfy his portfolio! :( So I sent them right away after he reduced the file size :) Hoping for the best! I so love Khubby, though I know he doesn't want me to go, but I need to because we so have family commitments to pay off, he shows his huge support in a mile :)

S.M. Lazo Final Visit (December 3, 2010)

I went to St. Jude and my dentist checked everything and it's all set :) They gave me dental clearance on every procedure that was done. I went straight to S.M. Lazo to have my final check up! Ms. Baby informed that my Chest X-ray is already cleared :) I went to their Dentist, and she is pleased with the outcome. As I expected, she did clear my Dental! Yahoo!!! Went back to Ms. Baby with a huge smile :) She told me as happy as I am that I already finished everything and all the tests are normal :) They will forward the results to IPAMS on a Monday morning :) Because I went there around 4 PM because traffic is everywhere. As I drove my way home, I can't help but sing Bon Jovi's "Livin' On a Prayer"
