Philippine Valid IDs

As we all know IDs or (Identification Cards) serve as our proof identity. More often than not, in every transaction that we make in private or government offices we are asked to present a valid ID to prove who we say we are. Not having one valid identification card in our possession can cause huge inconvenience and delay.
