transfer of ownership with HPG and LTO – my experience 2021

yun yung tip sa akin ng binilhan ko ng motor: isabay na lang sa renewal ng rehistro ang pag-transfer ng ownership. para minsanang lakaran na lang. i (well, actually A did it for me) bought my motorcycle in 2019. its registration is up for renewal every january dahil nga wala pa siyang plaka. last year i only renewed it dahil tinamad ako during the december 2019 break to process the transfer of ownership. this time, owing to the new “Doble Plaka” law, napilitan na ako na mag-comply para less hassle.

after countless hours of youtube viewing and blog/web reading, i mustered enough courage (kasi nga tinatamad. LOL) to do it during the Christmas break, thinking that there would be fewer people. naisip ko na nagsi-uwian na ang karamihan ng tao sa probinsya so mas konti din magre-renew ng rehistro.

why streaming mass isn’t enough: a reflection

after 10 months of whatever this is, people have begun to cope and adjust their lives and schedules around all the hoops and obstacles and requirements the government has given us. we’ve learned how to work from home, study without blackboards, and worship outside a church.

to some religious groups, perhaps, it’s easy enough to adjust: they see their pastor, the pastor preaches, they sing a couple of songs, and give their offerings via GCash or online transfers. sure, you miss your neighbors or ‘regular seatmates’ at the congregation but mostly, it’s the same. you can still prepare your biscuit and grape juice.

to Catholics, however, it is not. yes, we have the pastor, the preaching, and the praises and hymns but that physical thing that connects us to Him is missing. all faithful Catholics are deprived — even those in a state of grace!

typically, only those who aren’t “in a state of grace” must receive communion spiritually. now everyone must do it in their living rooms, kitchen tables, phones, laptops, TVs… and it’s just not the same.

perhaps to those outside our faith and some Catholics, it’s no big deal. i wonder why. being separated from Him for so long, we should craving to be united with Him.
