How Much are you willing to Spend?

When I go on a date or when I feel like relaxing or just to kill time, I usually spend around PhP 2,000 on a lunch or a dinner, that’s the MAXIMUM already. 

Different class has a different budget definitely, from Class E to Class A, this is also dependent on their purchasing power.

Looking at the bill on the left  is an actual receipt from a restaurant in New York called Nello’s.  The customer was a Russian billionaire who just spend his money to cheer up and enjoy the different cuisines around the world. Total amount in Peso is roughly around PhP 2M! and that is only for an afternoon delight!

This is almost comparable to the dinner that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her entourage had at New York City’s Le Cirque Restaurant and Washington DC’s Bobby Van’s Steakhouse, where the dinner tabs amounted to $20,000 and $15,000, respectively.

Malacañang officials claimed they merely had “a simple dinner,”  Simple huh?  that amount could already feed a hundred thousand of individuals or even a million poor individuals in the Philippines! 

I never did Immagine that I could spend that much for just a single meal, I would rather use that money and invest it in a business.

    oh well if a person is truly wealthy then spending thousand dollars for a single meal is certainly not a big deal for them..
