As promised, Teleserve delivered my passport 10 days after I made an appearance at DFA. A photocopy of my notorious birth certificate is attached to one of the crisp pages, making my passport look bulky. But wohoo! Im all ready for next month’s trip to the north with my family.

There’s one gray cloud in the horizon though – the H1N1. Hopefully, it will be safe to travel abroad by first week of June.
