2021 Alabang Hills Village car sticker application process for non-residents ongoing

It’s that time once again. Through its official website, the Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) announced that the application processing for the 2021 edition of their vehicular stickers specifically for non-residents has officially started since July 19, 2021. Take note that non-AHVA members (which refers to non-residents) need to have the endorsements of another Alabang Hills Village resident, the village association, the school or organization in order to validate the application for non-resident stickers.

The steps are simple and easy to follow. Firstly, applicants seeking non-resident car stickers must click https://alabanghillsvillage.com/vehicle-sticker-application/

Secondly, applicants should follow Step 1 which is to download, print and fill out the 2-page sticker application form. That being said, make sure your printer has enough ink and paper to print the said form. (reminder: non-resident applicants need to have their respective application endorsed first otherwise the AHVA won’t accept their application. That being said, look closely at page 1 of the application form.)

Thirdly, applicants should follow Step 2 which states the payment option and prices. To point things straight, the 1-year car sticker for non-residents is at P1,500 per vehicle while the 2-year car sticker for non-residents is at P2,700 per vehicle. The motorcycle/bike sticker is priced at P350 each.

Still under the non-residents category, commercial vehicles sticker rates are P2,000 per vehicle (four wheels), P2,500 per vehicle (six wheels and up) and P500 each (motorcycle).

Non-residents who need to replacement stickers need to pay P200.

Fourthly, applicants should follow Step 3 which is for them to fill the blanks with their respective details (name, email address, landline or mobile phone number) and upload the signed application form as well as the OR/CR of the vehicle(s). There is also the requirement to click the small box confirming your agreement to AHVA’s private police and use of their website, click another box that you are not a robot, and then click the submit button. All of these are within https://alabanghillsvillage.com/vehicle-sticker-application/ so make sure your Internet connection is on and reliable for uploading.

Once the applicant has been successful with submitting all the requirements online, he/she should allow up to 48 hours’ time for the AHVA to reply.

If you have further questions for the AHVA, send them email at alabanghills@yahoo.com or call them at 8850-8254 local 105, 106 and 107. AHVA offices operate 8AM to 5PM Monday to Friday, and 8AM to 12PM on Saturday.

2020 Alabang Hills Village vehicular stickers for non-residents now available!

Recently the Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) announced that it is accepting applications (for brand new and renewal, and for residents and non-residents) for the 2020 edition of the vehicular stickers for Alabang Hills Village, Barangay Cupang, Muntinlupa City. Motorists whose applications got approved will see their brand new AHVA stickers released to them.

For your visual reference, see the images below.

The front page.
The back page.

As seen in the images of the 2-page application form, required (in the form of the latest photocopies of the requirements) if the vehicle is under the applicant’s name are the vehicle’s Official Receipt (OR) and the Certificate of Registration (CR) of the vehicle. If the vehicle is not under the applicant’s name, required are OR, CR and a notarized Deed of Sale.

If the vehicle is under the name of a Company, required are the OR, CR and a Company Certification signifying that the applicant is the authorized user. If the vehicle has been recently acquired and has no license plate yet, required are the Delivery Receipt and Sales Invoice.

Most notable of all, as listed on the application form, are some changes on the application procedure which is the result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Take note that things will be a little bit different compared to last year. Firstly, the application form must be filled-up with details (for non-residents, this includes an endorsement from a legitimate Alabang Hills Village resident, from your homeowners’ association or from a school or organization) and must be signed by the applicant (on the back page). Secondly, the signed application form and the required documents (note: must be attached with the form) must be sent to the AHVA through email at alabanghills@yahoo.com (note: you don’t need to personally and physically submit your application form and documents. You only need to scan them for the purpose of sending them to AHVA via email)

Thirdly, the applicant must wait for the AHVA to reply by email from the Sticker Processor on the payment arrangements and day of appointment. That being said, you must prepare yourself for whatever amount will be charged and whatever method of payment will be revealed. Constantly monitor your email. Fourthly, an authorized crew member of the AHVA will install the new vehicular sticker on the windshield (driver’s side) of your vehicle on the day of appointment.

One last thing…the AHVA confirmed to me today that they charge P1,200 for a 1-year sticker (2020-2021) and P2,400 for the 2-year sticker (2020-2022) for non-residents.

Inside Alabang Hills Village, I spotted a tarpaulin (located a short distance away from the Tirona street gate) about the different schedules of the start of applications of AHVA’s 2020 vehicular stickers for different types of applicants. The following details are:

August 24, 2020 – Non-residents

September 14, 2020 – Residents

September 28, 2020 – Commercial

October 12, 2020 – Motorcycle/bicycle

Meanwhile, the old vehicular stickers issued by AHVA in 2019 for private vehicles (both resident and non-resident) and commercial vehicles will expire on September 30, 2020. Meanwhile, the 2019 AHVA stickers issued for motorcycles and bicycles will expire on October 30, 2020. As such, anyone who have expiring stickers need to apply and renew as soon as possible.

2020 Tahanan Village Vehicular Sticker Process Ongoing

Disclaimer: This is my original work with details sourced from the Tahanan Homeowners Association (THA) by means of inquiry and research. Anyone who wants to use this article, in part or in whole, needs to secure first my permission and agree to cite me as the source and author. Let it be known that any unauthorized use of this article will constrain the author to pursue the remedies under R.A. No. 8293, the Revised Penal Code, and/or all applicable legal actions under the laws of the Philippines.

Hey everyone!

Going to and from Tahanan Village in Barangay BF Homes, Parañaque City is more challenging nowadays as the still incomplete diggings related to a Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) drainage project along Presidents Avenue struggles towards completion leaving motorists no choice but to be stuck in traffic as a result of the reduced road space located near the corner of Don Rufino street.

After enduring a long wait myself, I finally entered Tahanan Village, visited the clubhouse and learned that the Tahanan Homeowners Association (THA) is currently processing applications (both brand new and renewal) for the 2020 edition of their village sticker. As long as there is a supply, stickers get released to the applicant and have it placed on the windshield of the vehicle (with assistance by THA personnel).

How to apply for a 2020 Tahanan Village sticker

20200307_132727.jpg
From the application form.

To begin with, an applicant must obtain from the THA an official registration form which is to be filled up with details (including the vehicle). Of course, the required documents such as the certificate of registration (CR), the latest official receipt (OR) and cash for paying the corresponding fee should be prepared.

If the vehicle is under the applicant’s or homeowner’s name, the OR and CR must be submitted. If the vehicle is not under the applicant’s name, a notarized deed of sale must be submitted along with the OR and CR. If the vehicle is under the name of the company, the Company Certification (with the company letterhead) must be submitted along with the OR and CR. If the vehicle has been recently acquired and has no license plate yet, the sales invoice and the delivery receipt  must be submitted.

Applicants who are not residents of Tahanan Village (therefore applying for the non-resident sticker) should obtain an endorsement from a village resident.

Now for the fees….

The cost of the 2020 Tahanan Village sticker

The fees for the 2020 THA sticker for applications made on or before March 31, 2020 are P100 for residents, P150 for non-residents and P700 for commercial vehicles and school buses. Effective April 1, 2020, the fees will be P150 for residents, P300 for non-residents and still P700 for commercial vehicles and school buses.

When it comes to statistics as of this writing, the THA confirmed to me that already 69 non-residents, 2,185 residents, 124 motorcycle operators and 5 commercial vehicles/school bus operators applied for their 2020 stickers.

If you are interested to secure a 2020 THA sticker, visit the Tahanan Village clubhouse now or call 88425955.

My Observations: Komiket South 2019

Yesterday around lunch time, I took time out to attend a geek and special interests event that targeted South Metro Manila and Cavite residents. It was the Komiket South 2019 event held at the ground floor of SM Southmall in Las Piñas City.

The place where the creators, fans and buyers gathered.

To put things in perspective, Komiket is an affordable komiks and art market that aims to discover new creators, readers and launch new komiks. “Komiks” is a local term referring to comic books produced by local creators. Decades ago, there were several comic books (or pages published on magazines) published here in the Philippines that highlighted local society as well as the fantasy talents of local creators. Such comics were published in Tagalog, the leading local language here in the Philippines.

The event was a nice gathering of creative people, most of which were artists who showcased their talents through the forms of comic books, stickers, posters, post cards and other collectible items. Such items were offered to customers who passed by out of curiosity or with intention to buy.

This particular booth attracted a lot of young people.

Along the way, I met with Damy Velasquez III, one of the creators selling independently published comic books. We had a nice chat about what were displayed, he allowed me to browse a few of the comic books and I decided to purchase one of his comic books titled The New DI-13 #1 (pronounced as “dee-trese” which ironically rhymes with Dick Tracy). Once I read it, I’ll publish a review here.

There were other indie comic books from other creators also displayed nearby. Among those I checked had black-and-white and Tagalog language presentations. There were some comics with color though.

Komiket South 2019 was a lively event that took place on May 25 and 26. It’s nice to see such events get held here in South Metro Manila and I hope that more of these will be held in the near future. There is nothing like meeting the creative people behind the artworks, the comic books and other collectible stuff.

If another Komiket or something similar happens within the south, I would attend it.
