Done With My Dual Citizenship

I'm done with my dual citizenship. I got my certificate last Friday from the immigration office in Manila. Then I filed my petition for hubby's permanent resident visa. They told me to go back after 5 days for hubby's hearing and that's today. It so happened that the van of my sister that we've been using in going to Manila is color coded today. We had no option but to travel by bus. It was not that easy taking the public transportation if you've been used to traveling by car or van for the past 6 years. Also, I'm not familiar with the streets in Manila so my sister had to go with us. She took a leave from her work and accompanied us. We left the house at 3:45 and my BIL drove us to Binalonan to wait for the bus that will take us to Manila. We were able to ride the bus at around 4:30 AM. It was a long trip and the bus had to stop at the bus stations twice not to mention the traffic. We arrived at the immigration office around 9:15. The scheduled time for hubby's hearing was 10:00 AM. As usual, it was already past 10:20 AM when they called us inside the room for the hearing. The so-called hearing is just like a casual conversation between the immigration lawyer and us with just a few questions and that's it. They told me to call their office after a week for a follow-up of the application. I hope it would be approved soon...
