Ano ang exchange rate nuong panahon ng Martial Law? Php 7.00 to $1.00 ? Pag nag date ka nuon Tapwe lang malayo na ang ma-aabot niyo! Pag binata ka nuon na may hanapbuhay, Php700.00 kada buwan ay ayos ka na pero sa haybols pa rin ng mga magulang mo ang uwi mo ararw-araw.

Bakit walang scanned na 5-piso dito? Teka, scan ko lang 'yung nasa wallet ko...

The 5-Piso was issued by the Central Bank on June 12, 1985. The front side of the 5-peso bill features the portrait of Emilio Aguinaldo, replacing Gat Andres Bonifacio. Remember, it was Aguinaldo's kangaroo court that condemned Ka Andres as a traitor to the Revolution and given the death penalty in 1887? Eighty eight years later, pinatay naman ni Aguinaldo si Ka Andres! Suspetsa ko, may kinalaman si Prime Minister Virata, a descendant (nephew?) of Aguinaldo, sa ikalawang pagpatay kay Bonifacio. History really does a replay!
