It’s been half a year already that I and some close friends (we are a group of 5) were planning to have vacay abroad. Abroad? Yes!!! But we’re thinking of Asian tours for now since we don’t have that flooding kachings yet.
Last December 2009, one of my friends asked us to accompany her in processing her Visa application. After having those necessary informations to be processed from where we applied for, we went to the National Statistics Office (NSO) to get my friend’s authenticated birth certificate. There we had our first problem encountered. She’s having a duplicate name entry in NSO. So we do some legal processes for that. Two days after completing it, we went to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). There we had the second crucial prob which made our day such ruined and even our application itself. Aside from having duplicate name entry, the lady/woman whose name’s same as her was noted to be a drug addicted woman. The NBI didn’t release certificate for my friend. Instead, just advised us by saying, “Ma’am, we suggest you undergo drug testing and if proven positive must undergo drug detox. If you’re shy (looking at us from head to toe), you can look for residential drug rehab program”. “Ahuh? Do we look like addicts“, these were what we answered. Thence, due to our anger, we went home and up until now we haven’t checked back the NBI yet.
Lately, we (the 5 of us) were chatting online, talking ’bout the updates on our preplanned vacay. Then, that friend of mine who doesn’t have visa yet said why not asking the NBI to just give her a certificate and tell that we’re going abroad to have us an alcohol rehab there. LOL!
We admit, we drink. But not to the point of taking drugs. Haha! We actually are just taking it as a joke lately coz we can’t do anything for it yet. We’re all busy for now coz from studying. Maybe by summer vacation, we can make the necessary things work for our planned vacay. Aja to us!
