Childhood Memories For Less Than A Vuitton Bag

By N Mark Castro

COST OF AN AIRFARE JAKARTA-MANILA

3 Million Rupiah = 300 USD =

Cost of a VIP Bus Ride with a Stewardess, Toilet, Food, Wifi, and Insurance Coverage to Baguio City, The Summer Capital of the Philippines

715 Pesos = 17 USD

Where you can recline your seat and stretch your legs

As you pass by this scenic route

To see sights like these for free

To feel the foggy chill

And ride the boat for 45 Minutes for 150 Pesos or 3.20 USD

In the infamous Burnham Park

As you build childhood memories of riding a bike for the same price as riding a boat

And eat these food for 20 dollars

As you stay for 5 days at the historic Casa Vallejo for 10,000 Pesos or 245 USD

Or camp out for free if you’re a cheapskate like me

And have a late night shopping on the streets

Presentation1

To bask under these trees and smell the scent of Pine Trees

And see how your ancient forefathers lived as they embrace modernity

All in all you spend about  less than USD 600 in building memories for 5 days

And definitely way LESS than this Loboutin

USD 900

And embarrassingly cheaper than this ubiquitous Alma handbag
