passport dillema

Hello everyone, thank you very much for visiting here in my blog even if I'm on vacation, greatly appreciate it! So far, I'm still trying to renew my passport here but sad to say, this is Philippines and the system works like a worm. I might get stuck here because they say that they can't process it immediately. It will take one month to do it. But we have to go back there in Korea on the 24th so there's no way its possible. Hopefully they'll let me in Korea with my passport expiring soon. I can't enjoy my vacation because of this. I still didn't visit my family because of this. Huhuhu... Thanks again for visiting!

  2. hello manang ko...kumusta na pala kayo dyan? miss to hear from you na talaga...hehhe...na miss ko yung ka chatmate ko everyday...hehehhee!

    Oh my gulay...what a nightmare..1 month? how come? sakin dati sa pinas less than 2 weeks lang yung process eh...nako kakainis naman kaya...I don't think if they will let you back manang kasi nga expired na yung passport mo...baka ma deport ka nyan....:)

    Kakaloka..dito nalang pala ako mag renew ng passport ko....kainis pala dyan ano...siguro gusto nila ng under the table...ganyan din kasi minsan sa pinas...you know naman manang....hehhee!

    try mo kaya to process it sa Legazpi...andyan ka pa ba sa Manila? kasi pag sa MLA ka kasi busy jan eh...the more people they process the longer it takes to get it done...so maybe try mo sa other place.

    You've been there for few days now tapos d mo pa na visit family mo? nako what a bummer...hehee....don't worry manang..think positive ok...kumusta ang mga bata?

    hala sige regards nalang kami sa Cottrill's family...au-au...missing you!

  4. bkit naman ganun? is there no other way?! hay, sna naman maprocess na yan asap. dont worry too much about it, lagi mo na lang isipin bka me purpose yan, di ba? malay mo din, your family must've missed you so much kaya me ganyang delay para you can spend more time with them.

  6. Why didn't you renew your passport here?I think it's easier and quicker here than there in the PI. Tell us the details about your passport renewal and their requirements when you get back from your vacay.

  17. That's too bad ate rose.

    I think the passport can be claimed speedily if you get one from Manila. THey don't have to ship the passport... but I think it would still take time.

    Anayway, enjoy your vacation. I wished I could meet you but hey, there are still other opportunities

  18. Rose, I am sorry to hear about your passport :-(; hope it will be fixed soon before you go back to Korea.

    For the meantime, just enjoy your visit with your family, too much thinking will not really help. Don;t let the passport issue prevent you from visiting your family. I know it is easier said than done, but you got ot do what you have to do.

  19. I just left a comment here, di yata pumasok eh.

  21. Hi Rose,
    It is really sad that our country has deteriorated so much. Everybody (except for a few) in government is just out to make money on the side at all cost and they will put every kind of obstacle to honest citizens like you so they can extort grease money. It is symptomatic of the kind of leadership of PGMA. It is a government that plunders its own patrimony and country. Sorry that their incompetence ruined your well deserved vacation. Probably next time your whole family should go to another country so that you can all enjoy your vacation hassle free. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

  23. Hello Rose! oh, you're in Pinas pala. Welcome home. Musta ka na? miss ko na beauty mo..

    Bagal nga ang systema dito. But all I knew, renewing passport will only take a week. pwede rin naman ipa rush mo with additional payment. hope everything will be fixed before you'll go back to Korea.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Why one month? Did you change name or something? To get a passport you can have it even in 3 days for a rush, and maybe can be even quicker if it's a renewal?

  25. Hi rose, just dropping by...
    hope everything will be ok...

  32. I sympathize with you Rose! That's the sad thing here in the Phils. To much Red Tape! For all you know, kailangan lang naman bigyan ng padulas yang mga magagaling na civil servants na yan! Sila lang naman ang problema ng Pilipinas eh! Yang mga CORRUPT sa gobyerno! Sorry ha, high blood na naman ako!

    So, ayan tuloy, hindi pa kayo nakadalaw sa family mo. Just try to enjoy your few days here, Rose. Take care always!
