Pegging from Manila’s cost of living standards, the price to pay for enjoying a view of The Dark Knight Rises in one of the choice theaters here would be equal to a couple of decent fastfood meals. Or three pairs of undies. Or three days allowance for the grade schooler.
The price could pay for a lot of common-use household supplies. A booty.
We are in a hand-to-mouth existence. We’ll just have to wait till the TDKR fever chills down. Then we’ll be alright again.
