Abie and Kelly gave me this tag ... and I am not sure if I should admit the truth. Or which name should I use ... So, please...bear with me for my long kwento. Hahaha!
You see, I've got "legal" problems on my name. Currently, I am still in the process of changing my name in all my official and government records. I already filed petition for change name last year to legalized everything but until now, the court proceedings not yet over. I still have to complete my court appearance this coming March 2008.
My real name are as follows: (please don't laugh ha!)
birth certificate : ARMINDA
baptismal certificate: JACQUELINE
school records: ARMIDA JACQUELINE
Well, my Mom told me that she was sleeping when the hospital nurse asked my Dad what name to be placed on the birth certificate. My Dad told the nurse to write ARMIDA because that's what my Mom wanted daw. Then before baptism, my Dad decided to change to JACQUELINE kasi..nice daw! So they used JACQUELINE on my baptismal records. However, when they enrolled me to nursery school (Montessori) the admin decided to combine the two records... ARMIDA JACQUELINE (sablay pa din kasi ArmiNda nasa birth di ba?! with "N") Haayyy..ang labo ng aking mga magulang?!! If may isip lang talaga ako ng baby ako, baka ako na mismo nag-register ng aking name sa NSO!
Thus, for how many decades I've been using ARMIDA JACQUELINE on all my school and work records. Together with my birth certificate, I always submit a joint-affidavit for my name. And this was offically honored/acknowledged naman. So all my company id, driver's license, SSS, pag-ibig, bank records, credit cards etc... bears the name ARMIDA JACQUELINE .. all except, Passport! Whenever I travel I always use my offcial NSO registered name, ARMINDA.
So officially, I am dropping ARMINDA as my registered name at NSO. Awaiting for the court approval and completion of legal procedures to finally use my "common-used" name ARMIDA JACQUELINE. Need to prove that ARMINDA and ARMIDA JACQUELINE is one and the same person. Hopefullly, this process will be completed by this year.
So..to answer Abie's tag, I'll use JACQUI (hahaha! pasaway pa din?! nickname ginamit!)
