How To Pay MERALCO bill using your Credit Card
Hiccup

We have a house in Manila but only a caretaker lives there. Someone goes to see her (either me, my parents or my sister) once a month to give her her salary and some groceries but there's no telling when that happens because our collective schedules are very erratic. There's even a chance when no one gets to go because there's too much going on at home/store or (and this sounds bad) we forget. That's why being able to view our MERALCO and MAYNILAD bills online is a massive convenience. There's little risk of not paying them before the due date because as soon as it's generated, I get an e-mail that tells me how much we need to pay and when  they are due. No need to go to Manila at all.

Before, I used to pay them at the Robinson's Business Center 5 minutes away from where I live. But I'm a lazy git, and I wanted to cut the step where I would go out of the house just for that. I enrolled our MERALCO and MAYNILAD bills to my BPI Express Online account so I could just pay them online without having to wear a bra (or something). That was cute until I realised I keep paying for them bills out of my own savings account but I don't get reimbursed. Boo. (We have a complicated arrangement at home; don't judge.)

Passport Renewal - Senior Citizen - Philippines

I live in the province (i.e. not in Manila) therefore sometimes, procedures that you find online on how to do certain things don't necessarily apply to me/my situation/my case.

For example. If you Google "passport renewal, Philippines" you'll find that they would ask you to go to http://www.passport.gov.ph/ so you can schedule your appointment at the DFA office near you, bring the requirements on the day, pay for your passport, wait for it to arrive and that's pretty much it.

Here in the province, if there was a provincial version of Google, it will probably tell you to:

1. Go to different travel agents that accommodate Passport Renewals. 

2. If you're in a hurry, look for the agency that offers the earliest schedule. If you're not in a hurry and just need a day that works, then just choose the agency that charges the cheapest.

3. On your scheduled appointment date, bring your requirements, go to the meeting place for the shuttle service, go to the DFA, follow the travel agency man, go home.
