Very kind, always in slow apeed:-). When my No was called on 9:00(I was told to be interviewed by 9:15), I (A) knocked #12 interview room's door:

After I stepped out the room, the time is only 13 minutes. If I did not tell the additional words, it should be only 10 minutes. Before my interview, also in this #12 room and the same officer, another guy from SZ proceed his Quality assurence interview and only spent 10 minutes(he said those questions only spent him about 6 mitues). So for those applicants just like us, pls take it easy. the questions are mostly very simple and just to verify what's on your application form. The officer even not checked any of the files I take( also the SZ guy). I never opened my files bag during the interview. oh, yes, I also asked the officer if he need the copy of our passports, he said no.
After the interview, I bought 2xHKD5070 bankdraft in a local HK bank. To by this by myself, I must have an savings account of that bank for if the money is unpayable, the money should be returned to the account. then I write the F.N on the back of the bankdraft and put it into the bank's envelop together with the intruction paper( with a bar code of your F.N) and put it into the mail box beside the Canada consulate General's door (12Floor).
For the interview place, it's on the 12th floor of the Exchange Square. There are 2 building of the exchange square, you should go to the one on the right side if you are facing the sea. The other building is called Forum.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
