How to know if your UK Visa Application is Approved

Tuesday, March 08, 2016 2
No one can tell if your UK Visa is approved or what unless you already have your passport and see a visa stamped on it.

I've read a similar email and text messages around the web, their visa was approved, and I received the same email, unfortunately my tourist visa was denied. Below were the messages I've received from British Embassy Manila.

After receiving these messages, I've received my documents in a few days. They sent back all original documents I've submitted with a 2 pages explanation why they denied my visa application. Well, fair enough, at least I have an idea why they denied my application unlike in applying Korean Visa, that no direct explanation why.

A Day Trip in Macau

Venetian Macau
It was so fulfilling that my supposed to be one country destination became two . Hong Kong was my first trip abroad, from there I made my DIY travel going to Macau. Macau is almost an hour away by ferry from Hong Kong, I took that chance to see the magnificent hotels there. 

And yes even just a day you will enjoy the Las Vegas of Asia, Macau! 

From Hong Kong I took Turbo Jet Ferry. I was lucky enough to bought a promo ticket on the same day of my travel. The original price of the ticket was $HKD 185 but I've got it for $HKD 150 only, nice price though. 

You can visit the Venetian Hotel, Grand Hotel Lisboa, Ruins of St. Paul's, and Senado Square in a day plus a couple of hours to get lost, hehe.
