Standard

Today has been an emotionally draining day. My sister was supposed to come to Taiwan but when she was at the airport, the airline wouldn’t allow her to board because of visa issues. We called up a bunch of offices to no avail. They weren’t helpful. At all. The immigration hotline even told us to call other departments, and the person on the other end of the line kept laughing because he didn’t understand why we would call them. Other things happened but I’m just too lazy to write about then already. Long story short, my sister still couldn’t come. Sigh.

The typhoon is in Taiwan and it rained so hard the entire night. The wind was also super strong. Our power got cut in the middle of the night and I woke up because of the heat and the noise. Spent the rest of the afternoon sleeping after those phone calls to the useless people. Our power came back around 6pm while we were preparing to go to my uncle’s place.

Currently at the airport waiting for mom and dad. Their flight got delayed and it was a really turbulent flight (according to mom’s message – she’s currently lining up in immigration) but they’re here safe and sound. My uncle and I went to Burger King for coffee while waiting.

Still don’t know what I’m gonna do with the leaves I already applied for but let’s see. I hope I can move them and that my sister and her boyfriend can come here either on Monday or Tuesday. Fingers crossed.
