I rarely watch news these days; don't really want bad news or political write-ups
It's not my kind of news to watch.
Until a news trailer clippings from a US Base
News catches my attention.
The headline "Burgers for thanks giving meal."
Well to tell you the truth my first reaction to this is "WHAT?"
Now to give you some background on why am puzzled again by this news.
Is this, here in the Philippines when ever we eat burger, it's a feast.
What I mean is eating Burger is a luxury.
Me and my family, from time to time eat burgers.
And when is the Time we do it?
We do it during celebration, birthday parties and special occasion.
The news says because of the current credit crunch some families cancel there vacation.
And eat burgers instead of steaks for thanks giving.
Here in the Philippines we don't even eat steaks.
But we eat lechon (roast pork).
I can't help but wonder… if the economic crunch continues in the states, its better to
Migrate to the Philippines. At least the current dollar to peso is P40- to $1.
I tell you ... if you're an American and have some savings ...
better to go here and live your retirement in the Philippines, a fresh start.
Your dollar will go a long way.
...believe me. :)
Let me ask you, how much is needed to live in the Philippines?
