Pictures of the devastation are now hitting the US... unbelievable. So many peoples' lives ended and house destroyed. I really hope everyone who posts here and all their family and loved ones made it through okay... I have been and will continue to keep you all in my thoughts.

Thank you, CG. The images are gut-wrenching. My immediate family in Manila is safe, but I can't help but still feel a certain level of guilt about being here in Aus when there is so much grief, pain and suffering in our homeland...

The whole Typhoon thing was so random, I am currently in Iloilo city and there was minimal damage,the worst being the loss of power for 18 hours. Yet a mere 40 kms away towns were inundated by storm surges and bridges wrecked by floodwaters. Outside the city communication is disrupted so we have no contact with relatives closer to the path of the typhoon. Yesterday some of the young guys set out to see if they could get through to help the family. It is a worrying time for everyone,made worse by the threat of another typhoon Wednesday,this is weaker but slower moving, bringing the prospect of flooding rains. In the Philippines the media have no qualms of showing deceased persons and it is very sobering to see uncountable bodies floating in the flood waters. It is made even sadder by the fact that the fatalities are disproportionately shared between the very young and the very old.

wow congrats Teedo! thats a good news!

I'm hoping help reaches Yolanda victims in tacloban asap.

I have a question to Mark Northman (i hope i got his last name correct? are you related to Eric Northman of True Blood? =p)

Just want to know if it's a good idea to email my "nameless" case officer regarding my plan.
I lodged my Tourist visa together with my PMV. My tourist visa was approved. On my TV i told them i'm going to Syd for 2 occasions. Now I am back in MNL.Thing is I'm no longer goin back to SYD this Dec. I'm planning to just wait for the approval of my PMV. I applied 26 June 2013.

I've heard I have a slight chance of getting approved within 6-7months due to my wedding date. Given with this "hearsay" do you think it's a good idea to let my CO know i'm no longer goin back in syd? or brush it off since I'm not in the priority group because wedding is on July 2014.

Hoping for you reply, Mark.

Thanks!

His name is Mark Northam, not Northman. If you want to ask him directly, you'd be best off sending him a private message here. But to answer your question, you do need to keep your CO advised of your travel plans to and from Australia, or non-travel plans as the case may be. I wouldn't count on getting your visa approved earlier because of your wedding date. Many people have had to push theirs back multiple times because their visa was not approved.

That is soooooo true! We are on our 2nd wedding date and my guess is it will be a 3rd before this process is finished

I will never find Mark Northam here if you didn't correct me CollegeGirl, thank you!

Mish: Hello! What do you mean on your 3rd? What was your initial wedding date?
