So I climbed at the top of the cliff, raised my right fist to the high heavens, and shouted:
“Tomorrow! I will embark on a journey that no other man has taken!” Then I scurried to my dump of documents and re-checked the completeness of the requirements including all necessary photocopies. *grin*.. I will attempt to process three documents in one day: Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) passport application at Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard, Pasay; Bureau of Immigration (BI) clearance at Intramuros, Manila; and NBI clearance at Monumento.
Okay so that was last night. I woke up (unusually) early this morning and (unusually) had my rice breakfast. I had to summon all my strength because I know that it will be a long day full of endless queues, counters, window transfers, etc. It’s like UP registration all over again! *grin* Not to mention, I knew Manila streets so well, strolling there will be like looking at the back of my hands (NOT). So I already expected that I’ll get lost somewhere at least once today.
To cut the long story short, I made it!! Or at least that’s how it appears. I think I will know within 6 weeks if I really did make it. Also, I will create separate posts on my individual journeys today. I want it to look like “how to” entries. And that’s because online “how to” pages helped me a lot in my tasks today. So I want to thank them by paying it forward. *genuine smile*
Gotta scoot for now. I’m late for training.
