Driver’s License Renewal in 30 Mins!

January 19, 2018

Last Friday, I found out that I was driving with an expired license. Good thing I checked my license or else I would’ve still been driving with an expired license up until now. That same afternoon, I hurriedly went to SM City Cebu to have my license renewed. I had a good experience the last time I renewed my license there because I did it in less than an hour. This time, I got more lucky because I did it in 30 minutes. πŸ˜€

HOTEL REVIEW: The Funny Lion

I rarely write reviews about the hotels that we stayed in (maybe because they’re mostly just budget hotels lol) but The Funny Lion is definitely an exception! I felt that I needed to write about our experience here because we actually didn’t want to leave the hotel. lol

Hotel Grounds/Services

The check-in was a breeze. Their lobby was un-airconditioned and open, and it was just so refreshing to see such a sight. Nice hotels usually have airconditioned and high ceiling lobbies but The Funny Lion’s lobby was quite unique. Sorry, I wasn’t able to take a photo of it because I only go there to connect to the wifi. lol (P.S. Their wifi is quite bad and there was no LTE signal inside our room.)

The hotel has two buildings, and this one is facing the pool. Our room was on the lower left side of the building in the photo below so it was really cool to have the pool just outside our room.

US Passport Renewal By Mail (Cebu City, Philippines)

I just got my crisp, 52-page US Passport in the mail a few days ago so I thought I could write about how I had it renewed. My passport will expire on October 2018 but I already have travel plans for next year so I just renewed by passport ahead of time.

Just a little background about me, I am 25 years old and I had my previous US passport renewed at the US Embassy in Manila when I was 16 years old. I had to go to the Embassy that time since it was my first time renewing it as an adult. Now that I’m just renewing my already adult passport, I did not need to go to the Embassy in Manila.

My Lasik Experience

A Little History

I was twelve when I realized that I could not see clearly the things written in the blackboard. I immediately told my dad and he brought me to an eye doctor that afternoon after school. Turns out, I was already nearsighted and had a 50 grade on one eye, and 75 on the other. I got my first eyeglasses that day and I thought that it looked cool on me. It made me a legit nerd. lol

It was okay at first because I did not have to wear my glasses all the time. I just wore them when I needed to. But my grade just went up and up every year that it was not fun anymore. My eyeglasses limited my actions. I could not wear sunglasses whenever I wanted. I have a lot of photos where my eyeglasses were on my hands because I just took them off for the photo, like this photo below. lol
