PayPal | Downgrading to Premier Account

Last 16th of February, I shared my issue with PayPal about confirming my identity and I mentioned there that I requested for a downgrade for my account, from Business to Premier.

Renting Bike in Marikina City

This has been put off for so many times already until finally, Diane made it happen last 09 March.

(Siya kasi ang may alam kung saan. And she's the one who reallyyy wants to bike. 😝 But in the end I'm the one who really enjoyed it.)

We went to Marikina River Park and there, lots of bike are available for rent.

PayPal | Confirming Identity

Last 09 February, as I was doing transactions from my PayPal account as I usually do, cashing-in to GCash, I received an email from them with a subject "Please complete your identity confirmation".

Part of PayPal's email said "As part of our continuous efforts in complying with regulatory requirements, we need you to confirm your identity at a particular milestone with us. You're about to reach this milestone with the total transactions on your account approaching your account limit."

And to confirm my identity, I needed to provide more information.

Experience | DFA Passport Application Process

1. Confirmed Online Appointment
2. Personal Appearance
3. Accomplished Application Form
4. Original Copy of PSA Authenticated Birth Certificate on security paper (in short, yung birth cert mo from PSA. Haha)
5. 1 photocopy of Valid ID

I started completing my requirements way back in November 2018 (from getting my PSA birth certificate to confirming my online appointment)

(I can't share the details about the process in getting the birth certificate because nakisabit lang ako sa pagkuha ng aunt ko ng birth certificate niya. So I totally have no idea how she got it delivered to her office 😅)

So for the first requirement, I went to for my online appointment.

As I was looking at DFA's appointment schedules for December 2018, there were only weekday schedules para sa malalapit na DFA Consular sa amin.

This was way back in November 2018.

Blogging Schedule Change

As we enter the month of February, I would like to make a change with my blogging schedule.

It has been noticeable that I am consistently not able to meet my current posting schedule every Friday at 12 noon....

Experience | Getting My Parcel From the Post Office

Christmas is a season for gift-giving. (I'm not limiting it only to that though)

And I, myself, was part of that season, not just as a giver, but also a receiver of gifts.

I wasn't really expecting anything but when my client asked for my address in early December, medyo nagkaroon na ng hint ang lola niyo.

But as we neared the end of our work hours for the year (we talked on 20 December that our last meeting for the year will be on 21 December and we'll see each other again the next year), my client opened up that she has intended to surprise me with a gift but ever since the parcel has arrived in the Philippines, she hasn't heard/got any update about it from the courier.

GCash | Tried Redeeming from Invest Money

I shared my experience before about how easy it is to use GCash' Invest Money and invest for as low as P50.

You can check it out here if you still haven't: GCash | Tried Investing Money for P50

It is easy to invest, but is it as easy in redeeming your money as well?

Let's check it out.

Experience | Color Manila Run 2019

Another new experience~!

After months of waiting and preparation (been jogging/walking at Marikina Sports Center every Friday to condition my body for the run), Color Manila Year 7 has finally come! It was held last 06 January 2019, Sunday, at the SM MOA Event Grounds.

But before I share my experience with the event itself, let me share the registration we've gone through too.

Vacation | Day 2 - Bolinao Beach and Falls

(Paalala: Photos are to be uploaded over the weekend. Gahol na sa orassss. My mind was left on the holiday break and hindi pa bumabalik. Pakisauli po sa akin kapag napulot niyo please. xD)

Part 2 of our getaway trip to Pangasinan is in Bolinao which is an hour-drive away from Alaminos city.

You can check out the Part 1 here: Vacation | Day 1 - Hundred Islands, Pangasinan

Since we ended our Hundred Island trip earlier than expected (supposed until 3:00 PM ang tour pero around 2:30 PM pa lang nakabalik na kami ng Lucap Wharf), tumuloy na kami sa Bolinao to rest and prepare for our Pabeeda Christmas party later the night.

Actually ang nasa voucher ng Hundred Island trip namin is hanggang 5:00 PM but that means 5:00 PM dapat nakabalik na ng Lucap Wharf para makaiwas sa high tide.

Although I just said Bolinao is an hour away from Alaminos city, it took us 2 hours to get to the inn (ang layo niya pre).
