I am same as you.
I went, I married and I came back. 15 Days.
Not for immigration bull*censored word*, but my wife sent me by courier something we call in south "podi" (it is a powder made of dal) and also thier custom of "pant, shirt" for pongal (Sankranthi)
Yesterday I went to walmart, and by chance I saw they put up my wife av chocalat on sale. I just grabbed the box behind the display 30 (gross wt 6 kgs) pieces in one single company big box and packed it and sent through Air Parcel. $204.
Exchange gifts, and keep proof.
There might be surely a question in the interview (if you get one)
.."Has your husband sent anything from abroad..
..."Have you sent anything from here..
These CIC people are like incapable or "not-bold-enough-to-decide" school teachers.
You tell them "teacher..teacher..I have stomach pain and I want to go home.."
they wont let you go easily. Ask 1000 questions, and see 1000 things..
And stil some times say "go back and sit in the bench.."
or say "go and appeal to the school doctor..he will decide.."
Because the teacher has doubt that you are faking it.
Some children just run through the gate and they are disciplined harshly
some children (old) "setup" false parents, uncles to come and take them (happens in college)
I will tell you. I would not have sent those choclates if she did not send the stuff from India
It is not that I dont lover her. But because I am lazy, tied up, and saving money for tickets.
But then she sent me stuff..right..
I am sure sending some thing from either the husband or wife makes 1000 times happines.
PS: From the post office I called her to give her complete postal address.
She asked me "...are you sending chocolates bangaram?...I said "no no no.." I am filling up a credit card form in the "mall.." they are asking for my Indian Address.."
want to surprise her, hope the IPS does not "eat it"
