Last night, I went to Abellana to get a Sinulog 2012 Photographer’s ID. Although I know that government offices close at 5:00, I still decided to go. Last year, I was able to get an ID at around 7 pm. When I got there, the guard told me to pay Php10.00 to park my bike (even after I told him that I was only going to get an ID.) At the gate, I was made to pay another Php15.00. I told the lady that I won’t take long and that I just wanted to get an ID. She insisted that I pay up. Okay, fine!
Well, as expected, when I got there, the office was already closed. Great!
Today, I woke up early to get an ID before I head to the office. I got there at around 8:30. The Sinulog Foundation office told me to go to the Sports office for the ID. Then, the Sports office told me to go to another office to get an ID. When I found the office (forgot the name,) I found out that it was still closed. Awesome!
When the office finally opened, it was almost 9 am (I’m late for work!)
Two years ago, I only had to shell out Php500 to get a photographer’s ID. Then, last year, they asked for Php600 (maybe because they also threw in a Canon vest with the ID.) This year, it’s Php1,000! Wow! Maybe next year it’s going to be so expensive I’d be forced to stay home and watch TV. Haha.
Anyways, bad feelings gone! I’m all set for Sinulog 2012!!!!
Anyways, FYI. If you still want to buy Grandstand tickets – White Tickets (sold out!) For Balikbayans, please call 4124355 and look for Ms. Ana or Cinbeth.
