There was a time when having P100 in your wallet meant that you were drowning in cash. These days, having the same amount usually means that you're broke. Luckily for you, payday is just around the corner. But until then, just how much is your P100 worth? Here's what we think:
1. A full-length novel
Bookstores often have a section for all their discounted books. Make the most of your P100 by spending it on a book or two. You never know how that purchase could change the way you look at life!
2. Live music
You don't have to spend a lot of money just to hear a good band perform. Simply go to some of the popular inuman places with your friends, order a round of drinks, and split the bill afterward!
3. A stored value ticket
Don't underestimate the power of P100. With it, you can skip the long lines at the LRT/MRT ticket counter and get a free bonus ride to boot!
4. Two meals at the office canteen
Forgot to bring your baon? Luckily, your P100 can buy you a filling meal at your local canteen. There will even be enough left for dinner later (if you're working overtime).
5. Entrance to an art exhibit
The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) often holds special exhibits that are open to the public. As of press time, CCP is featuring BADONG: Salvador Bernal Designs the Stage, a special exhibit honoring the late National Artist for Theater Design. The entrance fee? P100.
