cRICEs

… rather crisis! Haaaaaaay! I just came home from the market. Since the day it was announced, I was okay. Until……. I went to buy another one this morning. Ei, wait, I’m not hoarding huh! The last one was about to finish that’s why.

Though, I know there was a sudden increase of the rice price, last month’s was still bearable. I remember buying a sack of rice prior to that for just P1,380, then it became P1,450. And today? I got it for P1,750. It’s actually P36/kg but since I am their “suki”, I got some discount.

Just imagine a family provider who earns a minimum amount of P300 per day, with 3 kids who go to school, married to a plain housewife, renting on an apartment with misc bills to pay etc. Whew! I really don’t know how they’re going to take this burden.

So today, I thank God and my husband too for I was able to buy a sack of rice. *sigh*

PS
On a brighter side, LPG’s price has gone down, well, a little. P579 daw. My dad just ordered one. Last month’s was P606. Still a *sigh*

  1. hi sis, that was on the news last night and me too i can’t believe it’s going up really. they are predicting aabut ng 2000 plus per sack. we havent bought a sack for awhile now but last week we bought just half sack. siguro today we gonna buy another half.

    tama sinabi mo paano yong eaerning 300 per day even less just like us? wala na halos pambili. the sad thing for our home now, naubosan rin kami ng gas. buti nalang meron pa kaming dried coconut husks. 😀

  2. I just did the groceries yesterday and there were only a few bags of rice on the shelves!! We usually buy the 5 kg. bag kasi di naman kami mahilig kumain ng rice.

    Dati it was around Php 165 now its Php 213!! Grabe!! Pati nga milk nagmahal!!

    Anubayan 🙁

  3. @ Arlene : I was thinking of buying half lang nga but then naisip ko ganun din naman, bibili din pag naubos at baka mas mataas pa. Sana lang kahit bumalik sa P30 man lang huhuhu!

    Naku! Same here, the day I bought a sack of rice, naubos din LPG namin, kundi ba naman nakakaasar, nagsabay pa eh.

  4. @ Kongkong : Naku di uubra sa amin ang 5kgs lang hehe! Pati nga bilihin sa palengke kakagulat. I go to the market kasi once in a while, 4 days ago ata namili ako ng 1.5 kgs na beef, susme P330 agad! Eh paano pa yung pangsahog? 🙁
