Let Us Express Our Gratitude to CLM Management and Members

From: Canada British Columbia Vancouver @Imi5922 Time : 2018-12-14 08:28:30

Well, it's over — our immigration case that is. This Wednesday, yesterday, I had a hearing in Vancouver, and I'm glad to let anyone know that it is over with a positive result. The interview took only twenty minutes, and the decision was made in one minute. Finally, Janessa is going to join me in Canada in the spring, most likely in March or April.



I want to use this forum thread to say thank you to all the members who took the time and left a testimonial comment on my "Our Life Through The Keyhole" blog. A special thank you to CLM management and John Abbot for their attention in this personal matter. Our case has become so strong with the supporting comments and the letter from CLM management that one of the two officers that interviewed me admitted that in the end that she already knew she was going to say yes to our case before even starting to ask her questions.



Thank you again to all of you and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!



Janessa and Imi

Hey Imi, that is incredibly good news. We at CLM are all so happy for you and Janessa. We also want to thank those who made supportive comments for you, and to thank you and Janessa for your kind words here.

Have a great Christmas and New Year as you now plan your lives together in Canada. I know we can count on you to come back and give us an update as to how things are going in an occasional blog. Everyone will be watching with great interest for such posts.

My best wishes to you and Janessa, John

This is terrific news, Imi - congratulations to both you and Janessa.  (clap)(clap)

 

However, let me in the same breath say that this invidious situation should NEVER have occurred in the first place. The Canadian immigration authorities made a huge BLUNDER when they initially rejected you. This in turn caused considerable heartache, inconvenience and wasted time and money on sorting out THEIR error.



Canadian immigration authorities suck big time!  It's a pity the faceless, bungling bureaucrats involved in the initial decision can't be sued for their gross incompetence.  :^)

Well, I must admit to having a little tear in my eye when I read this comment this morning.

Congratulations to you, Imi. I guess we all kind-of knew you'd get there in the end.

I sincerely hope that you and Janessa get to spend a wonderful life together.

Love and Light to you both.

啊?这是真的吗?加拿大移民官终于首肯了?看了好几遍,再阅读三位帅哥的文字,大家都确定了,John说这是个天大的好消息, Barry在祝福的同时仍然秉持他一贯的怂人作风, paulfox1居然流泪了! 

Imi和 Janessa,当然要送上祝福,给你俩最好的祝福!祝福你们长长久久,幸福永远!我们知道Imi是很喜欢分享他的故事。这里,我写的是中文,想和Janessa说说,你也可以把你的想法道来,可以就用中文哈。此时此刻,兴奋的人儿还要说句(party)祝福祝福祝福(party)

Roosterfish, so glad to know that things went well during the interview !! I held good faith that you and Jan would pull it off even though it took some work, determination, focus, and frustration. Let me include the Love part as well. I may have a Rebel/Renegade streak in me, (Ya Think ?) but it really urks me that some damned governmental beaureau would have ANY say in whether or not a couple is legitimate (Urrgh). Now you have done it and can get on with the serious but fun business of developing a solid relationship. Kudos Brother,...kudos to you both.

May I suggest that, after successfuly completing an ordeal such as you have just been through, find a way to check into a 4-5 star hotel and order "Room Service" for a few days. Include Spa treatment. A fellow needs some reward from time to time :)) .

If things get a little bit difficult for you and Jan in the future, when you get feelin' low just remember, Ya'll made it through Immigration,...you can probably handle anything (hehe). I hope you will continue to be a CLM/ALM member. Always interested to read what you write. As far as accepting your thanks for my Support Letter,...aw Shucks Man,...I'm Happy to help out :))) .

Imi, I need to start my day. Wishing You and Janessa the Very Best of Luck in your new life. I sense it will be pret-ty cool. If you find along the way that you experience some Joy,... well,..."Geetchya some"!!  

Happy Holidays. Peace and Blessings, Gongji

One more thing. I really want to give you and Janessa a gift but, I'm not around physically. I know you are originally from Hungary and you also have an appreciation for all kinds of culture. Likes music as well (hehe). Perhaps the following vid will help you start your day. Hopes this gets your morning Train a Rollin' !!

Taraf De Haidouks - Turceasca was very good, thanks Gongji.....   but where are the women in the band! 

 

Oh, I forgot, women can't play stringed instruments!    (giggle)

To some of you, I need to apologize for the late reply. I was too busy at work and with something else that I wanted to finish before replying all of you.

 

Thank you for your kind words. My life has all of a sudden filled with plans for the future — good, enjoyable plans that I've already forgotten about how gratifying they could feel. Janessa and I are very much looking to living together, visiting my family and friends in Hungary after her Canadian arrival, and having a small celebration with them in a quiet place. Janessa is thrilled to try out some Hungarian dishes and looking forward to cooking some of her specialities for my family. If I still have a passion for writing, I will write an article about this trip of ours.

 

I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

 

@YingTingYu

Thank you for the YouTube link. I didn't know this band. They play a kind of Gipsy, folk music from Romania. There was a Hungarian influence around 6: 30-minute mark that I liked, the slow part. They are definitely masters of their instruments. I can't shred on guitar as much as they do on violins. And those transitions and solos are just eargasmic. Thank you for this gift of tune!

 

This rooster flies high nowadays. How about you? I have seen no articles from you for a long time now. Sometimes, we'd like to hear a proud rooster's crow in this dysfunctional barnyard for the only reason to pick up our heads and see where the hell we really are.

@Imi5922

You're welcome Bro. Yes, 6:30 is one of my favorite parts! The train has been rollin' up by half-step and speed and then,...such Pompus, Male Swagger (musically) but,... straight form the Heart (hehe). There is a small section on acordion at 7:36 where the tonality changes briefly from Minor to Major tonality. Extremely effective to my ears/heart/brain. Hey, let's not forget the Bass solo at 3:28 !! Fairly imperssive. I'm glad you can appreciate :)) .

Imi, there is something that has been "Niggling" in the back of my head since you first wrote about it in a previous blog. This regards your concern in having a small hand for guitar. Take it from a classical guitarist, the concern is minimal. Here's the test, spread your "fretting hand" out as much as possible and measure in inches between the outside tip of your thumb and the outside tip of your small finger. If the distance is less than 9 inches, one needs a guitar with a shorter string length. Instead of 25 1/2" try 25". Nylon string instruments can be found "off the rack" or made. I could make one that would sound as full as the longer string. Others makers can do as well. It takes some time and patiecence to become relatively proficeint on any instrument. There is an old saying about "Practice makes perfect" but,...this must be ammended to, "Correct practice makes perfect". This applies to many things in life and I feel you understand. I see No reason why you could not become an advanced amature. At least on the level of Small Gathering or Wedding or Self Satisfaction. Remember please, "Amature" comes from the Latin word "Amateus" meaning, "For the Love of". Even though I charge some money for my performances or teaching, I give a lot for free. It's my personal Duty. I hope I never loose the "Amateus" sense of it.

You have asked if this Rooster is flying high. Yes but no. I sold my lake house including most of the items in it last Friday. It has been a large effort but, the money is Good. I currently reside in a rural motel while I sort the valuable items out for efficient packing, temporary move to China and start a new life with "Honeycakes" :)) . China may not be the answer for us but,...must try. You know how it is for a Rooster when Love comes to town (ha!). I'll let you know.

Hey, I understand you're busy now with future plans and finishing up  current stuff. I am same. Let's stay in touch. I'm truly interested to know how Janessa fits in with the Family in Hungary. I'll wager she will do just fine. Traditional Chinese women Need to fit in with the man's family and the same for a man. It is a thing of "Face Saving Honor". Not just for her but also for her husband. Very important.

I gotta jet now. Take it easy but,...take it.

Peace Out Bro, Gongji.

Hi Gongji

 

I misspelled your name in my previous comment. For that mistake, here's something unique for you. I hope you've never seen this before:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55nbRdrceQk

 

By the way, I checked it; the distance is hardly 9 inch between my pinkie and thumb. Hardly means, I need to spread my fingers uncomfortably even to reach 9 inches. After your explanation, now I understand why I was suffering on classical guitar. I've had this classical guitar for years, it sounded beautiful, and I learned a ten song repertoire, playing the easiest songs from Guiliani, Carulli, Tarrega and Carcassi just for my own amusement. On electric guitar, it was much easier for me to play them, but they didn't sound as pleasing as on classical guitar.

 

Since Janessa likes when I play nice melodies, I plan to buy a new classical guitar. Now I know what I have to look for because of my short fingers.

 

Thanks, Gongji

It is not that Canadian Immigration sucks, it is because of all the "immigrants" from a very large country in Asia took avantage of the system back in the 80's 90's staying illegally putting a huge burden on the medical systems in Canada. Alot of under the table, behind the scenes manouving, actually people were dying ion storage containers being shipped to Canada from this large Asian country. I think Canada reacted too late and in the wrong areas to counter this illegal act, causing the good, honest people to pay for the bad people's actions.

If you are Middle Eastern it is much easier for you to get into Canada. 

I offer my congratulations to Imi for persevering and to his wife for staying with him, staying strong in this difficult time. May the Canadian dream grant you freedom and happiness for the future.
