NSO Help Line: Your Birth Certificate Online Request

Now, you can request an NSO certified copy of your birth certificate online. No need to queue in a long line before a counter. And, yes you can already avoid those nasty, often rude, city or municipal employees who, if they had their way, would rather receive their paychecks "trabojo en absencia." If you've heard of "working from home", this is new — earn a paycheck by "not working from home or office." Anyway, this is not about the [some] corrupt government employees. Sorry to say that but I yet have to encounter a government employee who is full of kindness, if such exists.

Going back.

The NSO virtual office is open 24/7. You pay using your VISA or Mastercard, Bancnet ATM, or Globe GCash. Once you have ordered your NSO certified birth certificate, you can check the status of your application, also online. Once ready, the certificates will be delivered to you.

These are the NSO certificates that you can request online.

  1. Birth certificate 
  2. Marriage certificate 
  3. Death certificate 
  4. Certificate of no marriage (CENOMAR) 
Here's the link to NSO online or NSO Help Line: See that "s" after http? It means "secure".

It's website is simple and direct to the point, which is good. How efficient is the online procedure? That I do not know yet.

Let me add just one short story.

I went to the city hall in Makati. I requested a copy of our land title. I went to the cashier and paid the fees. The cashier raised her voice and these were the words that the nasty fat lady threw at me: "Wala akong panukli!#?" (Translated: I don't have change!#?)

By simply handing a paper and a bill to her, without me uttering any word, I don't think I deserved such an attitude. I meekly obliged to her impolite command, and in a cultured manner addressed her, "You could have said it politely."

I-Witness's "Minsan Sa Isang Taon" By Kara David

A beautiful documentary that subliminally projects an irony of life.

"Minsan Sa Isang Taon" (Once A Year), an I-Witness documentary (aired Oct 8, 2012, GMA Network) by Kara David may look like a simple documentary but it's not. It's depth has significant things to say.

"Minsan Sa Isang Taon" weaved paper bills (cash, money) to be the irony of abaca, also called Manila hemp. A year of hard work produced 20 kilos of abaca fibers. When sold, those fibers are worth 1000 pesos. Imagine earning 1000 pesos a year for a family of more than 5! Those cash bills that the hard-working man was holding were made of a few fibers of abaca compared to 20 kilos of fibers that he produced for a year. Quite an irony!

We perceive money as symbol of wealth; yet what it's made of is a symbol of indigence. What happens now to the truth that hard work is the key to success? Somewhere in between must be missing.

The abaca farmer is surrounded with gifts of nature - hills, tre…
