Chocolate Hill

We changed the blog title as Chocolate Hill since I was impressed with the shape of Chocolate Hills in Philipine.  Someday, we want to go to chocolate hills.  Ops, I have to get the documents required!!

Foodtasting: Juan Carlo Catering

Had my first foodtasting with one of Fernbrooks accredited caterers – Juan Carlo. Well, of course it was held in Fernbrooks. I was so thankful that Jane and Jonathan accompanied me. Otherwise, I would have looked pathetic foodtasting alone – other couples brought their friends and family with them. Funny thing though is that, since Jane and Jonathan were a couple, naturally the caterer contact and Fernbrooks agent talked to them first and not to me. I had to assert myself and say that I was the one getting married and that my groom is out of the country.

Now the food. Soup was the first one of course. It tasted like an instant soup. They presented two sets for us to taste and I think half of the food I should forget about and in fairness, half of it I liked ie:

– Pork with prunes and walnut

– Salmon with Tequilla (a teeeny weeny pinch of salt would make it heavenly)

– Chicken with Peri-Peri sauce

– Blue marlin in Lemon and butter

– Assorted pastries, one shaped in swan

Altogether, it was a great experience.


Wow, NSO has really upgraded now! E-Census website  says I can have my requested birth certificate copy and CENOMAR by next week. But lo and behold, I already received my requested copies today.

Hurray! ^_^

birth cert and CENOMAR

‘Twas quite a productive day. I was able to apply for student permit at LTO via A1. For this task, I felt like a lemming. A1 told me yesterday to show up at 12:30pm. I just thought that we were gonna have some lecture. So, I was surprised when after the lecture, we were on our way to LTO for the picture taking and student’s permit application. So to LTO Las Pinas we were.

It was just quite good really because I can then head directly to Las Pinas City Hall to inquire about the marriage certificate license. I got the application forms, yes. But I got perplexed by the info Agot (the officer who took care of me) that my H2B (husband to be) and I should be together when we submit our papers for application. Reason is that we are gonna be interviewed first and that we will be attending 1 day seminars. We will then wait for 10 days for the release of our marriage certificate afterwhich, we can then have our civil wedding ceremony. This means either H2B fly here from Japan twice and be on leave from work at least 5 days or stay here for 2 full weeks. These options or I will fly to Japan and we’ll have our ceremony there. sigh. What to do?

Anyways, I was able to pay already for my Birth certificate and CENOMAR (Certificate of No Marriage). Was also able to make inquiry with Fernbrooks.

Let’s just count the blessings.
