At Naturalization Ceremony

Last Tuesday, 12 May 2009. It was my BIG day, now I am Dutch citizen. Next week Tuesday, I will go to the city hall again to apply a Dutch passport.

The Naturalization ceremony began at 2 pm. Around 12-15 foreigner from different countries received Dutch citizen at that time. Two of them is friends of mine while we were studying Dutch language at school. The hall was FULL with their families and friends. I came only with Jason and hubby.

To make Jason comfortable, I gave him my Olympus and he made lots of shots.

This is the man who gave me the certificate of my Dutch citizen.

And these are two of my friends that I talked it about. They are both from Philippines.
