Prices of different vegetables and other products have increased drastically because of inflation
That is why Filipinos now tend to turn to different kind of ways to pay in their normal living life. One product that increased is the Red Chili Pepperswhich is a favorite spice by Filipinos, whether it is used for cooking, condiments or for making sauce. It’s price have increased to a whooping amount of 1000php/kilo. Who could’ve imagine that the price of these little things would increase to such a high rate. Nowadays there has been a lot of memes regarding Sili, like for an instance where people put it inside their wallets and being called rich, something like that.
Now, a man riding the jeep as a passenger became viral because he attempted to pay his fare with Sili.
At first you can see him trying to get something in his pocket, then suddenly tries to count the Sili inside a plastic.
After counting such amount, he tried to hand it off to the other passenger so that they can pass it to the driver. The girl who received it was shocked and confusedly looks at him.
Other passengers looked at him probably thinking why is he using this as payment. He keeps insisting that they hand it over the driver though.
Here we can see that the driver happily receives it. It seems like he does know that Silis costs a lot these days.
Everyone had a good laugh about it and of course a lot of people laughed it off and thought of it as a harmless prank.
