I was told by a colleague that he had my birth certificate, the one I applied for last week. I didn’t know what to expect but I’m happy that I got it sooner than I thought. I just applied in the eCensus website at the comfort of our office and paid the 300 peso amount (for one copy) at the nearest Equitable PCI Bank (now it’s acquired by BDO), and waited for a week. I now finally got my NSO birth certificate.
I don’t really know what to say but this is it? hehe. Really, I’m glad though because I’m able to work on it. I really don’t like working on government documents cause it’s such a hassle. I guess no one likes it either cause you can only imagine how many people would line up just to be given a piece of paper. But it’s what everyone has to endure to be considered a citizen. I really don’t want to talk about this so I’m going to stop. hehe. I don’t even want to think about the tax I contribute every pay day and see it get wasted into some urban project in some distant region I don’t want to mention.
So going back, I’m just a few more steps to getting a passport. Now I wonder when I’ll be able to process one. More work on a weekday.
