I have been an active voter in my home province since 1993 as indicated in COMELEC’s website. Last year, I decided to transfer my registration record here in Manila. After filing for transfer and change of status, I expected a smooth process and the COMELEC officer who attended me assured that my name would be included in the new precinct as indicated at the receipt. They told me that I can even vote even without my new voter’s ID. Early this year, I followed up for the said ID but the Comelec staff said that my ID is not yet available for printing and is expected to be released maybe two years after date of registration. So never mind, there is no ID to be waited for because it is clearly indicated that my transfer did not materialize.
Today my sister messaged me that she received a mail post about my registration detail and that I am still an active voter in my home province. So it’s true. Does it mean that my old precinct did not validate or did not accept my request for transfer? The green receipt in the photo is for transfer of registration and the blue one is for change of status.
I only have 8 days to email Comelec to clarify what really happened with my request. All the while I was expecting that I could vote here in Manila in fact, I already had my final list of candidates. I am so disappointed. What happened COMELEC?
Life is too short not to live it to the fullest. When my grandma died a few weeks ago, we all felt sad because we lost a doting grandmother and surely we will miss her but it wasn’t a sad death because she died peacefully in her bed. We could only imagine her now watching over us from heaven. Her last few days were filled with happy memories. When I visited her last New Year’s eve, she told me a lot of wonderful stories on her 98th birthday. She was more than happy and it was unforgettable that she shared all the details how the celebration turned out. She died without burdens to carry on to the next life. She lived a happy, contented and full life.
So life is short but it becomes shorter when sickness takes it away. Last week, I accompanied my daughter to attend the wake of her classmate who died at the age of 16. I didn’t know her classmate personally but I cried at the wake when I see the grieving mom at the burial. My heart cried and gave comfort to the mother who just lost a son who died of cancer. We never really know when death comes, so cherish every single moment of life.

Wow! that must be a compliment if you are not a spammer. Lol. Funny that my site has been a favorite spamming corner and hundreds of the same comments just got marked spam today!
