The whole nation is following the story of Vhong Navarro, Deniece Cornejo and Cedric Lee's case. Even the latest Bong Revilla's issue just died naturally before even Lani Mercado's tears ran down her cheeks. The two giant channels were both happy of the sky rocket ratings, even surpassed the pilot episode of two big soap that started last Monday, The Legal Wife and The Borrowed Wife. Truly Pinoy! They really love Teleserye. But this one is a true story, even more exciting than soap opera. I give no judgement to the accused. I just want to say a line. CCTV cameras don't lie. Now, I rest my case.
There are other stories to read too other than the above issue.
I make it a habit to read and watch the latest news online and traditional media: TV, seldom newspaper, only when I'm riding LRT with newspaper for free. This news, Exact Bill Act made my day. Kidding. Want I really want to say is, "My goodness! Seriously, are you serious?"
"Barya lang po sa umaga." I always see this sign inside the jeep. As a law abiding citizen, I always make sure I have coins with me so I have the exact coins to pay to the driver. I don't pay candy for fare.
Whenever I buy anything at sari sari store and I have no exact money to pay for my purchase, the store owner always gives me candy for change, many times. I never complained about it. I understand that there is a coin shortage because many are saving it in their piggy bank.
When the store owner make it a habit of giving candy for change, that's where you would know they are making it an opportunity to sell a little more out of this strategy.
And the news that will protect us from candy, err change, which surprised me is the Bill of Change. What can I say? This news made my mind think a little deeper this morning. I will be protected whenever I buy something, but, of all the many bills that have to be reviewed at this point of time, why Bill of Change?
"Batas para sa pagsukli." Bawal na ang candy!
Do we have other law with a little weight to review other than Exact Change Act? No more candy for change. Give candies or goodies instead of loose change and soon you will be penalized. Seriously.
