Once again, I hit the road on another major errand.
Along with my driver, my brother lol, and my son in the back we travel to Toronto where I have to obtain my Philippine Citizenship. When my parents arrived here from The Philippines they had my brother and I before they were officially Canadian Citizens, therefore by default, my brother and I are Philippine citizens as our birthright.
We inherited land and I have to show that I am truly a citizen. (It is illegal to own land in the Philippines if you are not a citizen) I had to got to the Philippine Consulate in Toronto to do this. My brother and I made this trip 2 times before and since this was our 3rd trip to the Consulate I had triple checked that I had everything I needed. Our birthright situation is a very uncommon one and there were 2 separate applications I was required to fill out plus a lot of documentation I needed to have sent to me in order for my to complete the process. Luckily, the nightmare is over and I can rest easy. I will have to go back to Toronto in a few days to get my official passport, but I know that this time, I will be much more excited!
Here’s a few moments of my trip with my brother from my craziness to some highway rest stop food. He’s my big brother and my first best friend who has put up with me since I was born.. poor guy… but, we always have a great time hanging out, laughing and chatting.
Enjoy and have a great week! 🙂
