Back In The Philippines

I am back in the Philippines right now staying in Makati.  Been doing some Island hopping and just got back from Mindanao and Cebu. I am a permanent resident of the Philippines and went to immigration to report while in Mindanao which you are meant to do every year in January only to discover that my Alien Certificate of Registration (ACR) had expired in January.  I was still able to complete the reporting and my status is fine but I was told I could only renew the card in Cebu or Manila so later this week I will renew it at the main immigration office in Manila.  I can not do it today or tomorrow as they are public holidays.

Return to the Philippines

I was recently returned to the Philippines and spent some time in Mindanao and Cebu. Nice to catch up with family and friends. I am heading up to Makati in Manila soon where I still have an apartment but planing to close that early next month before heading to Thailand for a birthday party of a friend.
