Bad luck bill

When Mom and Dad were here, I remember talking about the peso currency which I still have in my "Philippine wallet" - the one which I use when I'm in Manila. Mom looked at my wallet, saw the contents, one of which was a P200 bill and exclaimed, "Uy, you have to spend this right away ah, don't keep this."

Concerned, I asked why ? Was it not valid anymore ? Was it going to get taken out of circulation ? And Mom says "It's still valid but people just say it's bad luck to keep a P200 bill, you have to spend it right away".

It wasn't until I looked more closely at the bill when I realized why some people would call it bad luck - check out the back portion and see who's taking the oath of office.


And then there's this MB caption - I'm sure that this wasn't intentional. MB, after all, is a decent newspaper.

Kawawa rin.
