Requirements to Travel Abroad for Philippines’ Government Employees

img_1605When I travel abroad, one of the things I have to do is to apply for a Travel Permit or an Authority to Travel Abroad or also know as Travel Order. For government employees like me, I need to have it for the immigration officer to let me go outside of the country.

I have applied thrice for a permit to travel. It’s easy and I apply 2 to 3 months before my departure date to make sure I’ll have the documents on-hand to show to the immigration officer.

You may read the Department of Education ORDER here.

A disclaimer: I work as non-teaching personnel at one of the public schools here in Pasay City. The following requirements I’ll list are the ones that we are required to submit, it may be different from other government agencies.

Things To Do and How To Get To La Mesa Ecopark, Quezon City

La Mesa Ecopark has been one of the places I wanted to visit for so long when I wanted a quick escape from the city. The location discourages me to travel, though, as whenever I hear “Quezon City”, I always think it’s too far from me.

First Time Seeing Cherry Blossom Trees

Last February 15, 2018, I flew back to Taiwan to be with my boyfriend again. (On why we chose Taiwan of me going to Canada instead, you may read it here.) It was such an exciting day for me. Prior to the flight, I haven’t seen my boyfriend for almost a year so I was very excited.

First thing I noticed is the weather. Manila weather is always around 32 degrees Celsius and I’m used to that. I knew it will be cold in Taiwan but I underestimated as I only brought two jackets with me. It was 20 degrees C when I arrived. That is very cold already to me who’s used to tropical weather. I loved it, though!Read More »

Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall Park, Taiwan

If you’re doing research on where to go to Taiwan, you’ll probably come across this park on the list. If you’re into arts and history, you totally should go here. Architectures are beautiful and if you’re lucky, cherry blossoms are beautiful when they’re in full bloom here. We went here last February 21st, there were cherry blossoms but only few trees have yet. It was also great to know more about Chiang Kai-shek – the former president of the Republic of China. Below are the photos I took when I went there:

January 2018 Review

IMG_1081[1]Hello everyone!

We’re now on the second month of 2018! The month I’ve been waiting for because I’ll be meeting Andy again after a year. I know right? This LDR thing is so crazy. 😀 Anyway, I thought of making a review how my January 2018 went.

I’d say January has been a stressful month for me. Of course, there were good times too but this month really gave me a lot of headaches. Here’s how:Read More »
