Panning Shots din pag me time

Its been months since I’ve last used Fudgee (my Fuji S1800 camera) for some rigid photo activity. So when I heard that Yamaha Philippines will hold its MotoGP Race at the nearby Robinson’s Mall Novaliches. I have to make sure that I’m free of my schedules that day.

This kind of motorsport is the best when you want to practice “panning shots“, which is particularly one my favorite photography techniques. Albeit am a bit rusty, I was able to captured some couple of nice shots from the hundreds that I made during the event haha!

Enjoy the pictures.

Drivers License Renewal at LTO – DLRC

Its been more than a week before I’ve noticed that my driver’s license is already expired. Actually, the same thing happened to me the last time I’ve renewed it. Signs of Alzheimer’s lol!

This would be my first time to renew at an LTO-DLRC (Drivers License Renewal Center). I’ve chosed the one that’s near my place, at Robinsons Metro East, Marcos Hiway Pasig City. Located besides the big grocery section, the DLRC office has around 10 employees and 30 seating capacities for waiting applicants. Although there’s no area rugs for elegant ambiance, it has air-conditioning that makes it much more comfy compare to their traditional offices with fans only.

Got there at around 10:05am ,basically the process are:

1. Go to window 1 and present your expired license
2. A form will be given to you. Fill-out the form
3. Pay the medical and drug test fees (P100 Medical + P300 Drug Test)
4. Take the medical and drug test
5. Submit back the form, medical/drug test certificate back to window 1
6. Next is at window 6 for capturing your photo and signature
7. Then pay the License Fee at window 5
a. License Fee – P350
b. Penalty – P75 (pag lumampas kayo sa expiration date)
c. Comp Fee – P57.63
Total P482.63
+P400.00 (Med/DT)
Grand Total P882.63 (at least bring P1000 bucks for sure)

Got hold of my spanking Drivers License at around 11:30am, one hour and a half, not bad at all, just in time to have lunch and some window shopping inside the mall.

Just a tip. DLRC Robinsons Metro East opens at 9am, you just have to enter at the side entrance of the mall. And don’t forget to bring a ballpen. (Me ballpen dun pero its P10 bucks, pang yosi din hehe).

UPDATES!!! as of 23 March 2012

Ambilis ng panahon at 3 years ago pa pala itong post ko na ito, meaning to say, gastusan na naman po kase I need to renew again my drivers license! Good thing na existing pa rin naman yung DLRC Robinsons Metro East LTO Satellite office. So ayun, before 9am nakaupo na ako sa labas at nag-aantay magpapasok yung guard.

By 9:10am nag-start na yung timer ko. Hawak ko na yung renewal form, at same pa rin naman lahat ang procedure. Bale yung Computer Fee lang ang tumaas. From P57.63 three years ago, now it’s P67.53, a difference of P10 only. Tapos na-release yung license ko ng exactly 10am. Uy less than an hour na, level-up! Ang masaklap lang  ay hindi ko binasa yung post ko na magdala ng ballpen, kaya ayun bumili rin ako ng ballpen duon worth P10 hehe!
