Following my “How To” blog post on getting a Postal ID, here’s another Adulting 101 for you. This time, let’s talk about getting a Barangay Clearance. As I mentioned here, I needed to get my barangay clearance for my Postal ID application since I don’t have any utility bill named after me yet. Getting a barangay clearance is actually simple, easy, and fast. But first, why do you need a barangay clearance? What’s it for?

According to PHILPAD.COM:

“A Barangay Clearance is a document certifying that the applicant is of good moral character and good resident of a given town or barangay. It also proves that the applicant has no bad records or immoral background. In a nutshell, the certificate simply states that the person stated has a good standing as a resident. The certificate is signed by the Barangay Captain. Stamped and sealed with the official Barangay Seal.”

About two weeks ago, I, together with my family, went to SM Megamall to apply for a passport. We missed some requirements so we got declined. We were told to return within (and not more than) a month to provide the needed requirements and finally process our passport. We went to the nearby food court in the mall and had a family meeting right then and there. We talked about the documents we should have when we come back. It didn’t help that the staff were a bit rude and actually non-accommodating, so that pissed off my mom.

So what did I miss exactly? I only had my PhilHealth card, an SSS E-1 form (no card yet), and an NBI Clearance, and they still weren’t enough to pass as requirements for the passport application (more on this later). I needed more valid IDs and supporting documents.The fastest (and one of the valid ones) ID I could have is the  Postal ID.

The government website has a summary of the requirements, procedures, and fees when applying for a Postal ID, but some information provided are already outdated. And my aim is to share my personal experience so you can have a more realistic idea of how the process goes. I know it’s easy to look up things online, but while doing my research on the requirements, I found out that some articles are already too old to be considered valid. Hopefully, this blog post of mine proves to be more helpful! In case you want a shorter version, just click here.  Or  skip to the latter part of my blog post for the recap!

Yesterday, I went out with my family and we saw this new local movie Can’t Help Falling In Love starring Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. I appreciated the movie because I’m a huge fan of Daniel Padilla both as an actor and as an individual, and I knew the plot would be quirky, which is something I could use right now.

This is not a movie review, but more of a compilation of my observations of the movie and the lessons I learned while watching.  I’m just going to do this on a whim to lay my cards on the table and because I don’t really want to put a lot of thought into it. I just want to pour out my thoughts.. as my blog’s purpose should be.

I get to accomplish so much without any Wi-Fi connection. That’s real and, as kids say, LIT AF. I’m one of those people who easily get hypnotized when there’s a strong Internet connection nearby. While I only need to upload this photo, I end up checking this celebrity’s account, watching a song cover on Youtube, scrolling endlessly on Twitter, looking up interesting hashtags, and so on.. all while forgetting to upload that photo – the main reason I unlocked my phone in the first place. Are you like me?

A few days ago, I was torn between these two events. One was a forum about depression in BGC and the other a fair event in Ortigas. I wanted to attend both but there was a conflict in the schedule. The forum was from 3 pm to 5 pm and the fair was from 4 pm to 8 pm. I chose the latter, so that’s how I ended up attending Yugto: Fair x Concert x Spoken Poetry Event.

Last March  26, 2017, I was invited by Travel  Book PH to attend the TravelBook.PH X LazerXtreme Blogger Event. Since I had no idea what LazerXtreme is about, I thought we were going to literally play guns outdoors. LOL. Talk about being naive. But overall, it was indeed an afternoon filled with fun, bonding, learnings, and new friends. I was hesitant to go at first because the venue is far from my place, but I ended up having more fun than  I expected and I even bagged lots of prizes, which seldom happens for an unlucky girl like me (Read: I don’t even win at bingo games)!
