Getting our new Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) birth certificates from the Sta. Mesa branch

30 May 2018

I don't remember where I heard that you can no longer use your National Statistics Office (NSO) civil registry documents since the PSA or the Phiilippine Statistics Authority will now take over.  But I knew that if this were true, most government agencies will now require you to submit PSA documents and that I have to prepare for such a necessity.  Here's what I did to get our new Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) birth certificates from the Sta. Mesa branch.

Attending Augustine's Birthday in Shakey's Espana

19 August 2018

It's always a treat being invited to a friend's birthday and Dylan was pretty excited to meet up with his classmates again. 

The invitation was given last March when there were still classes and we immediately put the date in our calendar so we wouldn't forget. 
The kids had a great time and they can't wait to see each other again when school starts.  Happy Birthday Augustine! :)

Today was the last big meet-up among the Paypon clan.  We were invited to Betty's Sansrival Restaurant in Quezon City by my cousin.
