hey all, I'm making a school magazine. and we have a traditional day called newroz, in that day we light fire everywhere! so the point is that i will make that picture on the cover! but i don't know one thing..
Like you I am also residing in States but I'm now in the Phils. for a vacation. If you are looking for branded clothes it is cheaper in the U.S. But then there are nice cheap clothes that you can find in the Phils. which are of good quality also. So if you are not that branded type of person then I'd suggest you buy clothes in the Phils. as it's way cheaper. The styles are in too. It's a rainy season here but it's hot! No need to wear a sweater.. in fact I always wear a sleeveless shirt..haha. It is safe to exchange your dollars inside the malls, i.e. SM Malls, Shangri-La Mall, Trinoma, MOA, etc. for safety reasons and to avoid getting fake money outside. Right now $1.00 is equivalent to Php45.00. There's no fee for exchanging your dollars. Food is also cheaper in the Phils. Have fun on your vacation! But remember to be careful of your belongings as there are robbers/snatchers everywhere. Nothing to be afraid of as long as you hold onto your bag and don't wear eye catching real jewelries in public. Hope this helps. Email me if you want to know more about the Phils.
If he is a trusted employee maybe they won't care that much, it's not like he stole a car or killed a person.
Well. I think that it's cheaper in the Phillipines, because of the cheap labour etc .. ( If you're thinking about no-branded clothes) The US has nice brands that may not be available. If you want . you can buy from the Phillipines and Canada?
It's cheaper in the Philippines, if you know where to go. Unbranded Shirts go for around 600 pesos, pants 1000 pesos and up. You can try Greenhills, 168 in Divisoria heck, even the clothes sold at the mall are cheap.
If you buy clothes that are made there, it will be cheaper but the quality may not be better. U.S. made is rare and more expensive but clothes made in China, Bangladesh, India, or other countries may be a little cheaper. Prices are fixed in department stores but you should know how to bargain in outlet stores. The exchange rate varies daily and you can get your money changed at many money changer locations all over shopping centers and banks. The currency there is in pesos, presently it's about 46 pesos to a dollar. Be careful with your belongings and wallet as there are many expert snatchers and pickpockets in crowded places. Most store salesperson are very polite, helpful, and respectful. People there in general are friendly and educated. They understand and speak English.
