She told me, she is going to study there and that they are going to report for college for two months(once a week only) for mandatory trainings. She is nervous and excited, at the same time as this is her first time to work out of the country. Good thing, she was advised what to bring. She was asked to bring only a few clothing as they can buy on charity shops. But she was required to bring black trousers for duty, long sleeves and duty shoes. She was also advised to bring a thick jacket since its starting to get cold in UK. She's rather excited about this as this will be the time she'll be seeing a real snowflake. I even asked her to bring me some of it, LOL.
The college won't give her job placement until she finished her mandatory training so she really has to be thrifty. She has to bring a lot of noodles, canned goods, biscuits and ready to cook foods. As she was contemplating on the things she's going to bring, she suddenly felt homesick. She would be away for three long years and she won't be able to see my baby born. She was also sad about leaving her favorite things and of course leaving her large collection of shoes. She's an any type of shoes addict and she's rather confused which one to bring. If only she could bring all of it, she definitely would. I told her she could buy a lot of pairs in UK even women's boots now that she would be earning dollars, right? Anyway, I told her to be careful and to always follow their rules as she is in a foreign land and that they have different culture than ours.
To my sis,
An, I wish you all the luck in the world. Do take a lot of care of yourself. Don’t forget to pray and ask for guidance. Please let us know if you have safely arrived there and if you are doing fine. I love you, little sis! I'm gonna miss you, sis, so will Jun and your pamangkins.*muah* *hugs*!
