Are you ready to vote?

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?

Of life and death

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.

“As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.” –   Leonardo DaVinci
