After 4 years, hello replacement plates! I felt like a kid who won something at an arcade, and it must have shown on my face because many guys I passed on my way back to the car said, “Sa wakas (finally)!” and/or congratulated me! 😂😅
p.s. guys, should I still use the 2015 sticker? The plate number is written on it, but it also says 2015 nga. Not sure if I should ask for a part of the car tint to be removed. Otherwise, I’d just use the 2019 sticker. I have a small rectangular untinted part on the windshield, good for 1 big sticker or 3 small ones.

Scheduled only 2 classes today to complete 600 and also to wake up early & have our Altis registered at the LTO. It’s a miracle – STICKERS ARE AVAILABLE! Apparently, motorists won’t get 3 pieces anymore – just this one, which should be placed on the windshield. However, the new plates I paid for 2-3 years ago are still not available, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be getting them. *rolls eyes*

It started maybe 3 years ago – stickers were issued late. But last year, no stickers were given. I paid for 2 sets of car stickers last year, plus 2 sets of new plates, but until now, they are not available. According to an LTO staff I spoke with earlier, stickers were available in April but they were limited. LIMITED, just like my PATIENCE with your agency!!! Grrrr!!! Such a waste of time, effort, and money!

Grabe, for the 3rd or 4th year straight, LTO stickers aren’t readily available upon registration! Hassle much! Ah well. It was still a productive visit, though: I decided to renew my license a week before it expires. Kaso naman, ang pangit ng pagkakaprint! Luma na ba printer ng LTO Marikina?! Naaagnas na yung ibang text o! X.x Sigh. Oh, and payment for a motor vehicle registration has increased because of the mandatory application for new plates! So you have to prepare an extra P450. I believe it is (and should be) just a one time payment, so regular registration fees should be expected next year (hopefully).
p.s. I change my driver’s license case every 3 years as well; hello, pink one! 😀

First time to take a leave since going back to the corporate world 6.5 months ago. Sinulit ko, syempre. Went to the LTO Marikina branch for our Mazda’s 2014 registration (still no stickers!), did some bank errands, had a quick trip to the grocery, took a nice nap, visited an uncle (in lieu of my mom’s birthday, I brought her younger brother pancit malabon as he’ll be turning a year old in a few days), had dinner at Uncle Cheffy (yummy steak!) in Bluewave, and watched “The Other Woman” (wasn’t that funny, but it made me want to have more girl friends haha). A great start to my weekend! oh and happy birthday again to my mom, Jean!
