Good to hear from you again.

How are things going? I hope you are enjoying your partner´s trip.

Thanks for the posting - though it is kind a strange for someone not living in Canada!! Seems an awfully interesting place though..

the most strange things are Departure bay and Sharon, both of them talk too much shit which is not related to immigration.

Departure bay is the worst.
Look like his post" Hankey Pankey" escort", what a hell wrong with you DB?? do you need get a laid or what?

I don´t wanna hear what´s happening in your life. Most of my friends who immigrated into Canada wish tough life, I am pretty sure you are the same, however you might be a little bid cycle

33.141... I have my man here for a visit from another part of the world. he tells me that he feels like he is on the moon. when we post our silly Canadiana, we give you a window into the world that you want to call home. It is to your advantage to read, to understand the context and to get your head out of your ass. Becoming Canadian is more than just obtaining a PR and it is time you get with the program!

Did you hear her ???
Don´t you dare talk anything against sharon here...... otherwise.... She is like God here on this forum.... with a wink of her eye, a hundred people in this forum will beat you to death. Do us all a favor and look up the meaning of the word "pedantic" in the dictionary and then you can be at peace with yourself and not waste your energy !
