    Adulting 101: 6 Questions You Need to Ask Yourself Before Taking Out a Loan

      A couple of days ago, Kyle of MoneyMax.ph emailed me and asked if he could write a guest blog post for me. Of course, I said yes! I was thrilled with the fact that this is the very first guest post my blog is receiving, and that his proposed article fits my niche perfectly.  In fact, it both fits the “lifestyle” and the “personal” categories.  You may have noticed that I have been writing quite a lot of blog posts about adulting lately. My number one drive comes from seeing a lack of helpful and/or updated articles online about applying for this I.D. or getting this kind of subscription…

    We Live And Breathe Corruption Everyday

    Did some adulting today. Along the way, I gathered some.. observations. I’ve never done this before. I mean, I’ve never really just typed whatever is in my head and allowed you to read them. Of course not.  I may say I do, but that’s not always the case. Often, before I write a blog content, I curate it in my head and have some sort of flow before I start typing. So while I type, I already have a “result picture” in my head. I can already visualize what it should look like before I hit the publish button. This one’s different, though, and I even write in Filipino in…

    HOW TO GET A BARANGAY CLEARANCE | Requirements, Procedures, Fees

    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…

    HOW TO GET A POSTAL ID | Requirements, Procedures, and Fees

    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,…

    TEDxTalks: Why some of us don’t have one true calling

    I believe I’m one of the people who was not destined to have one true calling. How do I know for sure? I don’t. All I know is that I have a gazillion thoughts running through my head each day. I want to do and be so many things all at once. But I only have one body and only one life. Of course, I can’t do every single one of my aspirations in life. Maybe just bits and pieces, more like. So let me ask you this: are you like me, too?  What do you want to be when you grow up? Well, if you’re not sure you want…

    How I Commuted From San Juan City to SM North EDSA

    Yesterday, September 10, I went out on a date with a good friend, Nikki. We scheduled to meet at nine .a.m., a few hours after her work shift (she works graveyard). Being the close-fisted girl that I am, I chose to take the typical Philippine public vehicles to get to my destination, knowing in my heart that it would be a bit stressful and far. But I also know it’s going to be way cheaper. Haha! I’m writing this blog post so it can be a reference for others who are going to the same spots I did but do not know how. I’m known for being easily lost (I…
