After I found out about these new designs I started looking for them and wanted to collect. Before the year 2011 ended I was able to have them all but it was just so hard to keep the 1000 peso bill. 😛
Now that its 2012, my friends ask me why would I collect the new bills when in fact we would be using them all. I should start collecting the old bills coz’ there are news saying that they will not be used soon (like in 2014?). :D:D:D
2012 is the year of the water dragon and the year of the famous “END OF THE WORLD” prediction…
Now, let me ask you ~ is money still worth keeping?
Whatever your answer is please remember this… we can never bring MONEY (old or new)to our next life… So, let’s live life to the fullest and live each day like its our last. We don’t know what will happen in the future. Don’t make money the center of your life!
SPEND… ENJOY… BE HAPPY!!!
