Visual Graphic Design Conference in Cebu

I've been eyeing for this since last year then I had doubts about the price I've seen from the Manila conference. I just thought that 1k plus was too much and also worried for my schedule if I could go or not.

Well, I'm surprised that it turned out to be half the price. Since I am no student, I just purchased the Professional Conference Pass and took the chance for the early bird worth P400. I just purchased online with an additional P85 for the shipping. I can't go to SM City Cebu before February 2, 2013.

Okay, I'm all set-up for February 9, 2013.

Alright, I wanted to be an artist. I wanted to take Fine Arts in college but took up IT. I may not be full-blast creative and artsy right now but being an all-around freelance worker, I will learn something from this conference. I never regret taking up IT because in some way, it introduced me to graphic design (I'm no programmer type).

Passport Processing in DFA Cebu

Last Monday, I went to Department of Foreign Affairs at Pacific Mall in Mandaue City. I arrived there beyond 8AM because I thought that there were only few people after the Sinulog festival but still there were a lot. I arrived there and received no priority number.

My first time there was totally epic fail. I went back on my way, passed Cebu City Health and realized that I should get my local birth certificate although I already had my copy of NSO birth certificate. I just made sure that if ever my NSO will get rejected, the local BC will save my @$$. So then I got mine, after that I went to Sto. NiƱo and lastly, went to the bank to pay my credit card bill.

The next day, I decided to wake up early at 3AM. I needed to be there before 6AM because of the priority number. My boyfriend accompanied me. So as a first time applicant, here are some of the requirements I brought with me:

  • NSO Birth Certficate
  • Local Birth Certficate
  • Transcription of Records
  • Driver's License
  • TIN Card
  • Voter's Certificate

For a detailed list of requirements, check here.
For the list of acceptable ID's and supporting documents, check here.

I was right, my NSO BC got rejected because the data inputs were not that clear so you really need a local BC. They say that NSO BC and at least 2 government ID's were enough as requirements. But the more requirements you will have to submit, the better.

My priority number was 180 and told me to be back at 11AM. We had our breakfast at Jollibee, just killing time and roamed around the mall. I brought my netbook with me but never got the chance to work although I saw Coffee Dream for a free Wi-Fi (only if you bought something there). We just busied ourselves chatting, munching potato fries and sipping buko shake.

It was quarter to 2PM I lined for the processing of passport. They checked my requirements and asked me if I go for regular or express. I chose regular for P950 since I am not in a hurry and the express is for P1,200.

Everything went smoothly, I paid P950 waited my name to be called, ID capture, checked the printed data if it's correct, got my receipt with a note that states I'll be back on February 27, 2013 to claim my passport. Yay!

Well, I am very excited which country to go to but I need to save money for travel. *_*

So what's your experience with the processing of your passport?

Strolling at UP Diliman

This is the continuation of my Manila Trip I had last year. So here I am blogging about University of the Philippines in Diliman. I remember that I saw old pictures of my mom and her cousins with their pictures with the Oblation monument. Warning: lots of pictures below.

2 Days Make-Over

1st day of make-over
It was last Sunday I decided and went to Franzy Salon for a pedicure and my very first time for manicure. I really wanted a short haircut then some colored hair but my hair is dry so I need a hair treatment. I am now planning for a long hair. I am just really impatient with my hair and I really don't care having a bad hair day.

Hoping for a beautiful long hair LOL
Here are some of the pictures at Franzy Salon.

my first time for a nail art

Laugh Out Loud with Sisterakas

Yesterday, I decided to have my own day off. I supposed to had my massage at 12 noon but unfortunately I was really late and it was rescheduled for next week. After that, I went to SM City Cebu to look for a battery for Samsung Galaxy Y because my phone has been acting so stupid lately. I went to Samsung Services at the Cyberzone but they need to order it from Manila. And duh, the battery is so expensive at PhP1.5K. I decided not to buy though.

Anyway, I got bored roaming around the mall. I went to the cinemas if Sisterakas is still showing. Oh yes, I want to laugh ALONE. I purchased the ticket and went straight inside, just perfect timing!

What can I say with the movie? Your PhP 185.00 is all worth it. I was laughing out loud the whole time. Good thing I just had my "me time" to de-stress myself from work. ^____^

Have you watched Sisterakas in the cinema? ^__^

Playing Farm Frenzy 2

I'm done with my task-to-do for today. Wow! I guess I'm really trying hard for managing my time. I don't think so but I am now enjoying that I have something to do. As of the moment, I have six clients and all of them are part-time jobs.

There's nothing interesting happened today. Just an ordinary day. So, I'll be playing Farm Frenzy 2 then I'll fall asleep sometime at one o'clock in the morning! This game is very addictive.

New Year Post

As of the moment, I have nothing to post because I am really sleepy right now. But I am thinking to dance with Xbox so that I'll get tired at night and sleep soundly. Just so you know, I slept at one o'clock in the morning after the New Year's countdown but able to wake up at 7 in the morning.

Simple preparations for Media Noche

with mom and sis at midnight

It turns out that I don't have enough sleep and chose to open my computers and work. I even did not take a bath. As my grandparents said, one who lacks sleep should not take a bath.

This post is such quite random. Anyway, I am trying to fulfill my New Year's Resolution which is about time management.

This is how I started my first day of January 2013, what's yours?
