The purpose of writing this blog is to serve as a documentation for consumers. Now that I am a major decision maker in making purchases for the household, I am quite frustrated on the current worth of my money compared to what I remember it can buy when I was a child.
|My KFC chicken meal|
Before a P100 baon means you are super rich but now if you try to give your child P100 and expect her to pay for his or her transportation fare and lunch food then you most probably will have a disgruntled child with a frustrated look on his or her face "Seriously, are you kidding me? You expect me to live with this?"
And I did have that same feeling (which is weird because I'm the one buying for my son and I) when we recently had a lunch date at KFC San Juan.
We were both famished already and we have a craving for fried chicken. KFC was the closest fastfood to us so we decided to eat there. I ordered a hot and spicy chicken wing and my son wanted an original recipe (breast part). I was surprised to see such a small piece of chicken after I received my order. I asked the server for a replacement and was even more frustrated when I received an even smaller piece (picture 3 and 4). I shouldn't have asked!
Anyway, there is no point arguing with the server (don't shoot the messenger right) but yes I was frustrated. While I was eating my mini-meal, a thought entered my mind I wish I could show and tell what my P100 can buy when I was my son's age and what it can buy now.
Then maybe our generation can understand that if we don't do anything to improve the state of living in the next few decades, our P100 will be just paying for one stick of isaw (barbecued chicken intestine on a stick).
Hopefully, that doesn't happen but if it does well I really don't want to create that picture.

So what can your P100 buy. Please share us your comments and suggestions as fellow consumers.
