New Philippine Peso
These are the new Philippine currency. They are not yet in full circulation but they are slowly being eased in society. After all the brouhaha of wrong data and illustrations, our new peso is now here. Thankful I was able to grab hold of the whole set when our photo booth, BK Pixels Photo booth was rented last May at a kiddie party. The celebrant’s mommy worked at BSP (Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas) and she paid us all in new bills. Yey!
It was kind of weird counting the bills though, I had a hard time. It might need some getting used to. Although I loved the more vibrant colors, I found it disturbing to find some of the former presidents’ faces younger… almost virginal, hahaha!
