The hotel room

This was our room in the hotel. It was a pretty nice room and with satisfactory service. One of the housekeeping staffs I came to be friends with. She is a Christian too, one of the 2.3% of the population. Yeah, why did I assume Indians are all Hindus and Muslims. I learned a lot from her. Cultures, they are beautiful and so unique they are worth learning. And I just love that. I took it as a privilege to be there.

Frontier trivia of the day:

the four major families of languages, Indo-European, Dravidian, Austro-Asiatic, and Tibeto-Burman as well as language isolate, the Nihali language are spoken in India. Only the continent of Africa exceeds the linguistic, genetic and cultural diversity of the nation India. (Wiki)

Overlooking the beach

On the other side of the garbage, in another corner of our room was the window overlooking the beach. You see the sky was gray, as gray as the waters, but it was an overall good scene and natural view to watch every afternoon after hubby’s work and for me everyday while in the Inn.

Frontier trivia of the day:

India has more than 2000 ethnic groups, and every major religion is represented.

Popularity Contest

How popular is your post? One group of things that I like about here is the plugin functions that can extend the functionality present in a standard WordPress, and there are so many available around. One that I have seen in some of my friends’ weblogs is the Popularity contest plugin that keeps track of activity on our blog and calculates a popularity percentage for each post and page. I finally tried it today and it is wonderful, entertaining, as you see in the display, you will know the rank of this post or page compared to the other posts and pages on the site, so can keep track what are the hot topics in my blog. Cool and charming plugin. Download it from here.

The times in India

Namashtè! This is the very first picture I had taken in India from the hotel where we stayed at in Mumbai 2006. It is blurry but that was the scene there. It was monsoon in June so we got a lot of rains and on this day we had rain showers. There was a water system there on the background washing the garbage toward the tan buildings when the tide is up or when it was flooding. I know it was not a very good sight to welcome me, but I was just so glad we arrived there safe and sound.

Frontier trivia of the day:

India’s population comprises approximately 1/6 of the world population. (Wiki)

Note: throughout this blog I would be citing trivia about the place I have been to, or blogging in qoutes, from the CIA Factbook unless otherwise specified.

Endless Frontier

August 4, 2007 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: Personal

We got me my own domain name and web host today at Hostgator. They seem straighforward and I have read a lot about them that makes sense. Still new to this so will just see. It is named after my cat, Lady Gishi. Endless Frontier, traveling and exploring the endless frontier and wonders of all places and technology of the world that we can reach. All in my memorable journal.

False Hope

Goodness, goodness! Ngek ngek ngek. Oh my goodness! Every call gives a new surprise; but my third call to the USCIS was so shocking. The representative said that the local service center New Orleans has just finished the May 2006 cases! Hah! That’s more than a year behind! Tsk tsk tsk. With the same slow pace, it seems mine will not be up till 6 months and more plus from now, and like the others, will take more than a year. Wish I could volunteer to help speed up case processing there. Goodness. It was just a false hope after all, something that really won’t happen yet though I had held it in me. Oh well, not all things will go on our favor. Finding other ways.

I Had to Call USCIS!

This time we were impatient already, it had been more than six months and my application to adjust status has not been approved yet, much less, we didn’t hear any from them. Hubby was at work and I called the USCIS costumer service number to inquire about my case. We had been looking at the processing time in California service center and my case is long past the schedule already, or, are they just so behind with other older applications? I talked to a guy representative, he was helpful, saying he would send a letter to California for me, but alas, his PC just stopped working he had to forward me to another line. If I didn’t tell the woman then that the guy told me he would send a note to CA she would have not done it! I was glad I initiated it. So she said she had forward the message to the service center and I will just wait for 30-60 days for their reply in the mail. Though it was bleaky, and surely seemed to take another months, still glad something was done. We target middle of October, and we got just barely three months.
