Let me just categorically say that getting a shot at a visa with a Filipino citizenship is just fucking hell.
E and I were at the German embassy yesterday for our scheduled interview. The stiff procedures were unnerving really. There I was answering questions from a fellow Filipino who was grousing me, asking how much I earn and where I work. I know the old lady was just trying to look for a clue, a twinkle in my eye perhaps that says I’ll just end up becoming one of those TNTs.
I wonder how our embassies abroad treat foreigners who want to visit our country. With a red carpet laid perhaps? Champagne and caviar on the side?
Ang hirap talagang maging Pinoy.
