The more I think about it, the more I cannot accept my fate. I should be on a business class flight to Dallas this coming Friday night! It was SO close. I had all my documentations done. I had my vacation plans laid out. I had all the approvals needed to fund this trip - I have to fight through all the bureaucracies in the company... only to fail at the visa area! And there's nothing I can do about it! Nothing! I can't influence the decision nor can I call to check on it! So near and YET, so far! :'(

This happened to me exactly 5 years ago. I was scheduled for a training in Japan. I had my visa and my flight ticket. One week before the trip, the economy crashed due to alleged money market manipulation by George Soros. That was in '97. The markets in Asean, HongKong and all around this region crashed! The class was cancelled. I was left stranded, unable to do anything!

Sigh! "MENG FU"
