    As long as you prepared very well, I'm sure you won't have any trouble passing.

    BTW, would you be kind enough to share which Hotel will you stay and
    how much did it cost you? Did you booked online or via a Travel Agency?

    Good luck and just keep those prayers alive.

    Thanks PinoyRN and your suggestion of Praying works wonders for us.

    You're among the inspirations on why our spirits are very alive.

    My faith has kept me a true believer of miracles and I can say I'm truly blessed.

    hello loryn, thanks. ive been self reviewing since jan 1 (new years resolution lol) answering lots of cds kaplan, etc etc.. its really tiring!:angryfire but it pays (i wish) il pass.... il be taking my exam 2nd week of feb in HK. my sister fixed everything with an agency offering Nursing packages regarding the nclex exam in hk and other locations. (based on what my sister said) hehe wel b staying at the continental hotel 4days/3nights.. 12 min away from the testing center. uhmm.. what else.. oh! costs? im not pretty sure how much is it because its all expense paid by my parents lol i really dont know... my sister will be my guide and she handles everything and she was the one who prepared everything, hotel accomodations, transpo, everything.. il post another mesg, regarding that though,..

    ***i dont want to think about that....:uhoh21: coz it increases my anxiety. im a few more days away from my exam.... oh my god i just want to share what im feeling hehehe

    estimate---- around 325$ i think..... il ask my sister for the specifics..:spin:

    Just an update, finally got my ticket via Cebu Pacific after long delays.

    I'm down now with my Hotel reservations (Fun Tours) and its between Ramada & South Pacific.

    Can anyone share their experiences with those hotels?

    Lots of thanks!

    news are everywhere on the approved Testing Center by NCSBN here in the Philippines as early as this year.

    i know i'm not alone on the mixed emotions and it saddens me.

    i know the timing of the philippine testing site was a bummer for you but just focus on your exam. good luck with it.

    as for your question between ramada & south pacific hotels, ive read reviews in tripadvisor between the two. it helped me decide where to stay. as i've said before, i chose south pacific & didn't regret it.

    hope this helps.

    Did you booked directly or availed of the Cebu Pacific's Fun Tours?

    I looking at a most affordable option as much as possible.

    Thanks for your reply in advance!

    I took cebu pacific's fun tours. I found fun tours cheaper coz of the airpoart-hotel-airport transfer included in the package at that time. They said that a cab fare from the airport to HK island would cost around HK$400. Another way of reaching your hotel would be the mtr which is highly sufficient, it would be cheaper than a cab around HK$300 (i think) for the 3-day tourist pass. But I would still recommend for you to compare the rates of booking directly & availing of fun tours.

    BTW, The shuttle that was included in the package that would take you to your hotel from the airport was very comfortable plus the fact that I dont have to worry about carrying my luggage. Although the ride would take around 30-45 min, its a good way to see HK.

    Hope this helps.
