my first in 27 years......

________________________________________________________________

Yes, you heard it right.
It took me 27 years
to get my 1st passport.
I just thought going abroad was
very surreal for me.....

So what's what's with the change of heart? Maybe it's more so because of the fact that things are getting better for me this year financially. Not that I have much but at least now I can afford it. Thanks to budget Airlines line Cebu Pacific or Tiger Airways I can now go to the nearest travel destination ,(actually second, next to HK) Singapore. Sana nga matuloy na. Bago paman ako kunin ni LORD sana ma-treat ko na sarili ko palabas ng bansa.. I have to prepare for it.....and this is my first shot. My first passport.



With the looks of it, life seems to be just starting for me. Some people think that it is very elementary and there is nothing so significant about. Anyways, since this is my blog, I can write anything crappy in here even if it would surely scare readers away. I've already had a lot posted here. Never mind, I'm satisfied with it.

This is my piece of the pie My share in the good taste life can offer and I am ready to own it, no matter how small an achievement it is. Stop me!!!!!


Then, this. As an online ESL teacher, I am proud to say that I am part of the DOT's goal of attracting 10 million tourists by 2010. I make it a point that I always promote the Philippines to my students and convince them to go to the Philippines instead of somewhere else. I would always say that our the Philippines are the best in the region.....far better than Phuket, or Pattaya or Bali. But wait a minute, have I been to those places? Not yet. So who am I to say? Shouldn't I just say I am ignorant about the topic and just shut the f...k out? Nope. Not a good idea. Anyways, so far, my success rate is 1 out 10, kkk. At least they learn about our country and they tried to think of it. Publicity is publicity. Every small effort will definitely help.

By the way, the passports color is new. It's now black, and I heard that it's now machine readable. Thank God, our old and still running on over-capacity airport NAIA-1 might witness a small ease. I hope. Let's see if it will deliver it's promise. Wow, I can't wait to go out of the country!!!!




By the way, I got it for Php 1,500 through a travel agency. I think it is more convinient that way. All I did was to appear for my signature and thumbmark( which is mandatory) and then wait for 12-15 working days. I heard that you could also apply online, http://www.passport.com.ph/app/index/ . Good luck you guys>>>>>>>>

  1. Carl dude, thanks for leaving comments on our blog for some time now. We appreciate it.

    AND dude!!!...please edit your passport photo immediately. It's dangerous to post your full details online.

    I remember reminding each blogger that do so. For your safety dude, edit out the full name and your birthday. Others may use your identity for rouge activities.

    Just concerned.

  11. Should be ok, i hope~ haha... by the way~ your blog title, Pusa is cat, right?... what does saling mean??

    ReplyDelete
  12. there is no direct translation in english but it has something to do with being new in a group for example but you are not being recognized as a member of the group.....

    it's like being an outcast. It is about trying to find the acceptance and recognition......
