It has truly been a rollercoaster ride today! First thing in the morning, I received a call from the human resources manager about my work permit status. Apparently they did not receive it on time and therefore I cannot leave as of today. Then I got a call from the lawyers telling me that there might still be a chance, and for me to stay around to wait for further instructions. After which the human resources manager called and ask me to change my flight, regardless of the penalty incurred with changing at the last minute.

So to make the story short, I'm leaving Saturday morning instead. Great. So much for spending a couple days to familarize myself with the surroundings.

Just got an e-mail just now - my work permit is ready and now I can FINALLY leave. Felt like 'ants in a hot wok' all day.. and couldn't even sleep properly. Now that it has been solved, I can finally get some sleep. :)
