I want An Elopement Wedding
Thursday, October 31, 20190 Comments


As an introvert, I hate the thought of having to walk down the isle with a lot of people's eyes on me. Don't even get me started with the wedding reception where you have to entertain the guests and make sure they are having a good time. That will drain my social batteries.

Aside from that, the wedding expenses also seem to be not practical. Heck, you could already use it to buy stuff you actually need for your home or save it for a rainy day.

My dream wedding is to elope with my groom, sign the papers at the courthouse and have a nice dinner afterwards.

NBI Hit 2019

NBI Berma Mall, Baclaran

Once again, I got a hit when I applied for NBI clearance and was told to come back after 10 working days. I hope in the future, they can come up with ways to check records faster.

10 working days is a long time. Would be nice if they offer an expedited service.

Too Cute for Words

It's so nice to have someone who makes me a better version of me than I would ever be on my own, someone who I would be utterly lost without. 😍

Renewed My Passport for 2019
Friday, October 04, 20190 Comments
We finally had our passports renewed yesterday and it didn't go as smooth as I expected it to be. I prepared all the necessary documents beforehand but M didn't bring her original birth certificate.

Her passport was just for renewal yet they asked for her birth certificate even though she has her old passport with her and her school id, and a copy of her birth certificate. They won't accept the copy without seeing the original with the PSA receipt attached to it.

Our appointment was at 7:30am but we arrived around 6:30am. There was a long line at the entrance already when we got to DFA Aseana. Since M needed the original bc, we went back home to pick it up.

Traffic was already heavy by the time we got back on the road around 8am so we took the NAIA expressway to skip the traffic in Edsa.

The whole process was fast since the number of applicants weren't that much during the time we got there. It only took us less than 30 mins.

The documents they asked me were:

2 copies of E-receipt
1 copy of application form
1 copy of my ID
My old passport

And of course you have to show them your actual ID.

I was expecting them to release the passport after 12 days but I was wrong, it is actually 16 business days plus 2 extra days for delivery.
