How to Get a POSTAL ID
(At least when you're in San Pablo)
(The day before:) Get yer barangay clearance (P20) and sedula(P30?). Have them photocopied. Get at least 3 pieces of 2" x 2" ID pics.
Get yer cute li'l ass to City Post Office by 8:30am. Get an application form, fill it out, stick a pic on the indicated box and stalk yer postman.
ME: (barges at the back of the Post Office) "Which one of you delivers to my area?"
POSTMAN: "...That would be me."
Get him to sign your application form. He told me to have it notarized by a lawyer. I eventually found a notarial service office at the building/house right beside that Big Mac stall in the corner. They charged me P100.
Have the picture-paseted, postman-signatured, lawyer-notarized paper photocopied.
Go back to Post Office. Hand over the oh-so-important paper, its photocopy, the photocopy of your barangay clearance, the photocopy of your sedula, your other 2 pics, and yer money (P150 for the oh-so-important form, P20 for the "documen-chuchu" stamp, P24 for ID lamination).
Wait a while. magpa-kyut. magpahinga dahil sa haba ng nilakad. And maya-maya lang you'll get a brand-spanking new, hot-off-the-laminating-machine POSTAL ID! Wheeeeee!
