As usual, very little or no information from the Embassy in Manila.


Guidance: Marriage in the Philippines

I sent an e-mail GOV.UK suggesting that it's left hand does not know what the right hand is doing?

What is the point suggesting a British subject wanting to get married in Cebu, Philippines and needing a 'NIC' (No Impediment Certificate) should contact the Honoray British Consulate (Moya Jackson), in Cebu.

Just the week before they sent out an advisory stating that the Honorary British Consulate (Moya Jackson), in Cebu, was retiring on 19th April 2013 (my 58th Birthday).

How can/should British Nationals in Cebu, wanting to get married contact Moya, when she is no longer the Honoray British Consulate from 19th April when she retired!

But surely, this is no longer possible, since we already recived this news:-

I might suggest removing "or from the British Honorary Consulate in Cebu."?

Or replacing it with, "This also applies for CNI applications in Cebu, until a new successor to Honorary Consul, in Cebu, is appointed".

Honoray British Consulate


Quite frankly, who is likely to be qualified for such job and willing to become the new successor to Honorary Consul> in CebuSuch appointment, was on a Volunteer basis I understood, meaning Maya Jackson was likely to not get paid any salary as such, just some 'fringe benefits', perhaps?

I did not get an Invite to Moya Jackson's Retirement Party (then again I would have had to decline as I was in Mianyang, Sichuan, from February 26th 2013 to June 14th|).



Cebu-Cebu Cebu bids British honorary consul Moya Jackson adieu in style  By Jaime Picornell

Philippine Daily Inquirer

6:31 am | Sunday, May 12th, 2013


British Ambassador Stephen Lillie hosted a reception at the Cebu Country Club in honor of Moya Jackson, member of the

British Empire, on her retirement as the British honorary consul in Cebu.

Ambassador Lillie proposed a toast to Moya and Antony Jackson, who came to Cebu in 1961 in what was supposed to be a temporary assignment. They’ve been part of the Cebu tapestry for the past 52 years.


Ambassador and British Consul in Manila Brendan Gill took the opportunity to present Moya with a special consular award for distinguished service, oftentimes beyond the call of duty.


“I love you all,” said Moya, who has been Her Majesty’s honorary consul for the past 25 years. Loud cheering came from the assemblage of the British community, the Cebu Consular Corps and a sprinkling of dear friends.


Moya said the same to a group of friends who held an everybody’s party for her and Antony at The Beehive, one of Cebu’s oldest restaurants. Their “Cocido Completo” is legendary, and that’s what the party’s organizers Carmen Campbell and Teresita Moraza Mendezona ordered as “plato unico.”


Among those present were Hazel Gonzalez (the Beehive’s owner), Mario Mendezona, Michel and Amparito Lhuillier, Angeles Marthieu, Evelyn Ugarte, Julina Muertegui, Maritere de Rotaeche, Margie Taylor, Rosebud Sala, Teresin Mendezona, Annie Aboitiz, Conchita Taylor, Maricar Medezona and Lourding Marquez.


Before the evening was over, Moya recalled some anecdote about each and everyone present, mostly dealing with the first time she and Antony had met the person. There were some hilarious recollections, prompting someone to tell Moya that when she gets to London she should write a book about Cebu memories.


It’s not goodbye, the Jacksons were told by all. They may be leaving for England by the middle of May but they intend to be back before the year is over, to spend the cold months here.


“So, it’s sooner than you think,” quipped Antony.


Besides, they have family here. Daughter Tamsin lives in Cebu, married to Robert Booth. She just might follow in the footsteps of her mother as British honorary consul.
