|My Ordeal With Thai Embassy And My Trip To Singapore by JayJustus(m): 2:57am On Mar 25, 2015|
aye aye Nairaland!!!!!! sooooooo lemme start my story from here.
I study Hospitality Management in Malaysia under a UK university and every year we have a trip somewhere to do some research stuff. Year 1 is a local trip within Msia while year 2 and 3 is an international trip. So for my year 2 trip my lecturers decided it was gonna be thailand...na so fear grip me small as you know Nigerians and Thailand...ehen I know if you're vast with south east asia and nigerians you'd grab...but still I was confident cos one nigerian girl went with the school to the same thailand last year so I assumed they have relieved all those nonsense they were putting on Nigerians as a whole. Soooooooooo we went to the embassy and for this trip we're only three africans...one ugandan girl and two nigerian guys (me and my friend)...so our lecturers applied while we waited outside then they came out and told the rest that theirs was successful and they will come get their passports the next day with the sticker on em but that for us nigerians they asked us to go get "LETTER OF GOOD CONDUCT" from ministry of foreign affairs... sharpalay I looked it up and discovered it was in another state...so my teacher said we should go...sharply we took mad ass train and bus to some desert like this and kaboom you start seeing government houses popping outta no where like RKO from no where (randy orton)...we went to the office first thing we saw was "LETTER OF GOOD CONDUCT HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FOR NOW...ONLY MANUAL APPLICATIONS CAN BE PROCESSED NOW DUE TO SYSTEM CRASH"... that day was monday ehhhh...we're supposed to leave for thailand on sunday morning and application for visa is one working day so the last day is basically thursday ehhh...so as we were there contemplating we just kukuma applied for it thinking that we'd beg them that we need it by thursday maybe luck will shine on us the woman at the counter said "ehhhh this will take at least one month" and then my friend had already fainted inside...I was still pushing...I was now like "isn't it possible that one of the officers can just give a handwritten letter or even a note with his stamp and signature?" she's like no...i'm like lemme see one of your officers and talk him through maybe maybe you know...then I released my regular attraction charm that gets Malaysians...I started blowing malay for her then some of the officers there became interested...my friend thought I had found a breakthrough,...pshhhh...still still didn't work...so I called my lecturers and they were like we'd take the form we filled with the acceptance stamp from the ministry plus a photo evidence that the website is down and all...Thai embassy said NO...that rather than that we should go to Nigerian embassy and tell them to write letter that we are in good standing and have not commited any crime/ they can vouch for us that we will not do anything wrong..unluckily it was past 11am and nigerian embassy doesnt accept applications after tuesday 11pm...gobe my friend said...I now told our lecturer to call the ministry herself...she called, they even gave her a direct line of one of the issuing officers...so we hoped and hoped... pshhhhh...the nigga said he can't write it and all and all...so i'm like how will I pass this course ehhh...my friend now gave his work to his friends going on the trip...me don't trust these my classmates they'd purposely eff me over...
soooooo the next day which was wednesday I vexed, by faith booked flight to singapore...lol...booked my hotel...and then after class dashed off to the visa centre dropped off my stuff...applied very late so my application only went in on thursday...by monday my e-visa was out. Singapore is visa free to over 80% of the world but in 2010 it was closed for nigerians cos of erhhh..but glad we're in assessment level 1... the ones in assessment level 2 like bangladesh, egypt, morocco, algeria, pakistan and all...so these ones have to get a visa sticker but level one is by e-visa... just a paper like that...so thats how I did and I am typing to you from the hostel I booked...but funny thing is that when I got to the immigration the woman on duty asked me how old I am since i look very small and my voice is too woman-ish...i'm like 20 and all...she's like you're traveling all alone, i'm like yeah.. in my mind i was like "thank God for S'pore i would have lost almost 30% for that subject..." then she stamps me in then calls another ICA guy and that one starts asking me questions ooooo...cos I remember last two years or so one guy I knw was bounced back...cos I noticed I was the only one that was questioned after the regular questioning at the counter...he asked for my school ID, wrote down my schools name and all and all...I came prepared...hehehhehe... so screw thailand for now...Nigerians have messed up the image there totally and I hope they would not bring us to assessment level two...yawa will gas oooo...anyway I bet not cos we're edging closer and our passport is getting stronger... so my advice is that wherever we go let's respect that green passport and not for your own selfish reason you kacau other people (kacau in malay means like to put sand in another mans garri)...you do nonsesne every other good citizen bears the trouble while you're languishing behind bars...so I'd be posting picshureeeeeeeessss once i'm done with this homework here...cheers...

God will help and Favour us, some of our brothers/sisters have done terrible things outside Nigeria making these countries to treat us like animals. Even the sincere, honest, and faithful ones suffers it.

So day one is finished...I arrived Singapore in the morning after my one hour flight from Kuala Lumpur...piss con dey do me for plane...ohhh my God...na so when I land for Changi airport na toilet I run so...the relieving sound I was making was like when a girl is receiving kondo and she's groaning...hahahaa...okay too much diversion...
So I checked in my hostel...and this hostel manager is such a sweet guy ..has experience with Africans and tells me that Malaysia doesn't treat Africans well that's why all vices happen there and I was so glad he said Nigerians in Singapore are cool.ohhh my...I wanted to shit on my pants... He said yes...that Nigerians here work hard since it is difficult for em to do vices like that corrupted Malaysia...so after lil gossiping with the nigga I slept a bit and went doing my homework...ehhh Singaporeans are very nice and helpful compared to msians and before coming here they (Malaysians) told me Singaporeans are so cold but NA LIE...Malaysia is night and Singapore is day...hope you know what I mean...hahahaa...
So I went first to Bugis street and had some braised beef noodles...I've been in Msia for so long so it was not a problem for me more so cos I speak almost fluent bahasa Malaysia which is also spoken in S'pore... Photo will be posted after this...then I went off to the infamous marina bay sands and then saw all I could see...then decided to start my homework...so met an american guy who was my first interviewee and he answered all my questions and became my good friend...and we toured and toured till about 3am and then I went back to my hostel and gossiped again till 6am...its almost 12pm here and I'm ready to complete my homework so I can chill for the rest days...

@jayJustus,Bro please how do one in Nigeria go about obtaining a Singaporean visa and how much does it cost?And again,how is Singapore, is it a place Nigerian guy can work or do business/hussle?
|Re: My Ordeal With Thai Embassy And My Trip To Singapore by JayJustus(m): 9:49am On Mar 26, 2015|
Well sir...there's the Singaporean consulate in Victoria Island...the website is there if you search for em...about work there's a heavy crackdown on foreign labour so you probably have to be super duper extra skilled to secure a job...and don't think of coming on a tourist visa to search for job you'd just waste time and money...I think you can brush up yourself on LinkedIn and hopefully make your horizon Singapore...for business I think you should talk to the consulate but the process long my brother ehhh...and for hustle don't think about it...it's such a small country anything you do they'd catch ya after 5minutes...hahahaha...so legit is what will pay ya but as I said it's not an easy place to just get work...the middle East is still better off
|Re: My Ordeal With Thai Embassy And My Trip To Singapore by JayJustus(m): 9:52am On Mar 26, 2015|
Hahahaha. .my nigga this is soup noodles...that's how my family back home even eat their noodles...we don't like dry noodles...I can vomit if I eat it dry cos I don't feel I'm eating...hahahha...
Well sir my homework is about tourist behavior... It's such a fun homework to do but the report na waya ooo...but in everything na #Godwin

So day two was over and I went to the National University of Singapore (satellite campus) (5th best Uni in the world)...it really hurt me cos my cousin applied for his masters program me there somewhat in 2013 or so and he was denied but he is in Japan now studying Space Engineering... remember God always has a plan B! Then off to the botanical garden...awesome...but its somewhat like lekki conservation park...SO at the botanical garden i met a columbian lady who was my secind and final interviewee for the homework...phewww so after the 39 minute conversation with her i was done...my mind at rest now i can chill...tnen from the botanical garden I headed to Holland Village thinking I would meet some YouTube stars there cos they told me they were there...Gobe...I met noone..haaaha...from there I headed to the main campus...THIS KS A SCHOOL OF ALL THE BEST BRAINS...I met a random guy and asked him few questions and I'm like so you're a smart ass and he's like no...hahaha...shy shy bobo...STARRRR.. Do from NUS main campus I headed to China Town...there I bought souvenirs upon souvenirs...I'd be sharing the loot later on when I take a photo... Then I headed back to the hostel and rested a bit...gossiped with the hostel manager...NB---Im a guy but I'm girlish okay...hahaha...doesn't mean I look weak...I played state football league here for under 20 when I was still 17...hehehehehe...I behave like a girl sometimes especially when it comes to gossiping...
|Re: My Ordeal With Thai Embassy And My Trip To Singapore by JayJustus(m): 4:38am On Mar 27, 2015|
So after my gossiping I went to the popular RED LIGHT DISTRICT called geylang...just saw around...it's full of hookers and migrant workers from Bangladesh, Myanmar, Pakistan, India etc...so I entered into the main hooker stations...o boy look at all these ladies and pimps everywhere...they were calling me but I ignored...even one love-vendor walked up to me and was like "hey bro...hey bro...what's up my man...nak perempuan malam ini??...that means do you want a lady for the night??"...hahaha..I was like huh huh huh...laughed off and then left the place...so from there I headed to Mustafa Center...the place for cheap electronics...but I went there to hunt for chocolate and food I can't find in Msia...and I was back home...
So today I will be off to Orchard road to look for cold Stone creamery ice cream...they have branches in Lagos and abuja but not in Msia...and Singapore has it...so I'm glad...I'd be back later to put up some photos...hehehehehe..stay tuned...don't touch that remote control
