Just thinking...

Last week, a group of Filipino celebrities spent sometime (and lots of money!) in a resort at Panglao Island, Bohol. They chose to stay at an exclusive resort in Barangay Tawala. The rates range from 425 to 2100usd during lean season and from 575 to 2250usd at peak season.With a conversion rate of 48.50Php/1USD and most probably, they checked in to more exclusive balai (villa), let's say at 2100USD/day plus extra charges and tax, they would have, more or less, paid a 105,000PHP +. And that's just for one day stay which is equivalent to an annual salary for an ordinary worker. But look, I am not saying this against the celebrities. They worked hard for that money and they definitely deserve it. It's just a thought that came to my mind when I saw their pictures in the newspaper, that's all. Let's face it: some guys have all the luck. Most of us don't.

Some do make to much money for little work.
