Ito yung apprehension ko eh, traveling to another country with Xavy considering he is a minor and an illegitimate. I've heard stories about how a consent from both parents is required if only one of the parent is traveling with the minor. Basically Xavy is legally considered illegitimate since his Dad and I are not [...]
So we lost the slip for claiming his passport and I eventually forgot. Until one of my friends saw his name posted. Said something like we need to claim it before to send it back to Manila for cancellation. So the next day I went to their office. I brought some identification and informed their [...]
Mabibilang lang siguro the number of people who really want to become solo parents right from the start. Majority of the millions of solo parents (there's about 14 million solo parents in the country, according National Institutes of Health data) probably became solo parents because of the various circumstances in their lives, and not by choice. [...]
So the past few days, he's been mumbling about getting a passport so he can go to London (ROTFL). I know I should be blamed for the CNN influence, he's now mumbling about going to all these places that's being broadcast. London has been on air lately because of the poisoning of Skripal and his [...]
SSS is mandatory if you're employed - your employer also pays a certain amount for your SSS. Sad thing is some employers are not updated with their monthly contributions, although the SSS deduction on your payslip every month. Now, if you want to check your contributions, would you want to fall in line and wait for [...]
So technically I never got my TIN card in the first place, was too lazy to go to the BIR office and ask about how to get one. On my previous post on How-To: Change BIR RDO address, I mentioned that I got my TIN online and that my RDO was in Marikina. When that [...]
Back in 2004, BIR launched the online TIN application. Curious me, I applied for one without realizing all these RDO (Revenue District Office) stuff will cause me headaches in the future. And so fast forward 8 years later, after 3 employers and finally needing to change my S to S1 status, I didn't have a choice [...]
The night before I went into labor last 2012, I lost my wallet which contained all of my cards (ID, ATM and thankfully no cash). Probably because of the pain I was experiencing that time, I totally forgot where I placed it. Fast-forward 2 years and about 3 months after, I still did not get a [...]
I am sure not a lot of solo parents are aware that there is such thing as RA 8972 also known as the "Solo Parent's Welfare Act of 2000". Oh well, there is. And if it wasn't for one of my colleagues who has been exercising this right, I wouldn't have known either.So according to [...]
And so I called them again to get an appointment with the social worker but it turned out that their office is now closed for the holiday break. Tough luck!But they did give me their hotline which is 0915-259-3029. I promise to call once I get more prepaid credits on my phone.
So our HR (who's like a mother to me as well), advised me that I should go to GWave instead of going thru DSWD and the Family Court coz if I do the later, it's going to be messy, at least with GWave, it's not going to be a fiasco. Looks like our company lawyer [...]
So after I got my final clearance from DOST Cebu - the second step to getting that passport is to get my NBI clearance for travel abroad. When I applied for my NBI clearance in 2004, I did not get a hit maybe because it was only for local emplyment. When I got another clearance [...]
After 10 years of employment, it finally sinked in that I have to get DOST off my back. I only needed 3 years of employment and I am way past that "3 years". So after that whole fiasco with NORSU on getting my diploma, I had to find other ways of getting that clearance without [...]
