Male occupant,30, moving in by the end of Feb. Preferably walking Distance to train stations. Kindly pm me or email me at [email protected]
Occupation: 233214 (Structural Engineer)

Educ: 15 (Degree)
Work Experience: 10 (5+ yrs)
Language Skills: 10 (PTE-Proficient)
Age: 30 points
Total: 65 Points


04/03/17 - IELTS R6.5 W6.5 S7.5 L8.5 Good enough for EA Assessment (>6 each category). Haha. Self-review and not much time to practice kaya mababa scores. Haha. (Cge justify!). I think ang mali ko is nagfocus ako magreview ng Speaking and Listening.
Note: Hindi pa acceptable ang PTE sa EA at this moment.

24/04/17 - Submitted my application to EA.

25/05/17 - EA requested for additional evidence of employment. I initially submitted Income Tax Return from my 2 employers so supposed to be enough. But since they requested more I uploaded my payslips then.

15/06/17 - Finally! Received positive outcome from EA. Yuhoo!

(Since not enough pa din IELTS english points ko to get total points higher than 60 requirement for Visa, i took another exam from PTE. Sabi nila mas madali daw kesa IELTS. Eh di Go! Tsaka sayang din yung score ko sa IELTS-Speaking baka bumaba pa. Haha)

03/07/17 - Took PTE Exam. Hindi Madali!!! Haha. Siguro kulang ulit sa practice. Lol. I wasn't expecting na makapasa kasi may part sa lecture na wala akong nasabi. Haha. Pero yun, naka-74 ave. pa din. I therefore conclude na lenient talaga sila magscore. Hahaha. PTE Scores: L73, R71, S78, W83 (Results are out the next day)

05/07/17 - Submitted EOI 189. Start ng fiscal year so everyone's expecting ng buhos ng invitation. Tan-tanan! Haha.

10/08/17 - Super tagal ng invitation! Daming bad news (nag-cut ng staff ang dibp, processing time updated from 3 months, na naging 7 months then naging 11 months) Sa inip nagpasa ng EOI 190 for NSW. Dito lang pwede structural engr mag-EOI na walang show money eh. Haha. Sana pala Civil Engineer na lang occupation na pinili ko.

06/09/17 - I got invited this round! Since ang tagal nga di ako nag-eexpect na kasama ako. Pero yehey! So I scheduled immediately for COC-Eappeal here in sg. Nagsked na din for medical (SATA Online).

11/09/17 - SPF notified me that my e-appeal was approved. So I set appointment for fingerprinting. Got my COC on 15-Sep.

16/09/17 - I am expecting to have my health exam. But decided to call SATA (the clinic) first to confirm my booking. They said they do not accept booking thru online. #Haist. The next available weekend dates are on the week after.

23/09/17 - Had my Health Exam at SATA Ang Mo Kio. Results came out after 1 working day only.

25/09/17 - Finally I LODGED MY VISA!!! Yuhoo ulit. I submitted all docs na pwede i-submit hoping for DG, hehe. (Forms 80 and 1221 included) Iniisip ko pa actually ano pa pwede ko i-add. haha.

30/09/17 - Habang nag-aantay ng grant, mag-analyze muna ako. hehe.

As per myimmitracker, below are the nos. of grants (For 189 lang ha) for the past 3 months:

July : 29 grants
Aug: 86 grants
Sep: 611 grants.
Mabilis nag-escalate ang nos from aug-sep. So I think nagsisimula na sila magmadali starting Sep. So Oct will also be the same. May quota kasi sila need mainvite per occupation kaya dapat maghabol talaga sila. So I am expecting showers of grants for the month of Oct. "Expecting". haha.

God bless sa mga kasama kong nag-eexpect ng grant! and sa mga
waiting for ITA next week na ang invitation round. All the best sating lahat! Power!!

10/11/17 - Finally! Praise God! While busy working i accidentally opened my email and saw the new message from Nanginig akong bigla sa tuwa. haha. I was supposed not to tell it yet to my family para surprise but I cannot contain it. Overjoyed feeling once mareceive mo ang iyong grant.

God bless to the rest na nag-aapply pa lang and sa lahat ng waiting ng grants nila. Darating din yan at God's appointed time. :)
