I went grocery shopping today at our local mall here. I was shocked to see how much imported stuff they have now. I like it because I got so many choices now. They must have like three ailes now just for the imported stuff. I bought like half imported items on our groceries. It’s kind of spendy though. I bought like a bag of chex mix it cost over 200 pesos, Macaroni and cheese 89pesos, ravioli 99pesos. I was also shocked to see that the prices are still too high yet the value of the dollar is getting lower. Even the prices of the local foods here were mark too high. Sometimes I would wonder how can a low income family afford to buy groceries. I know some of my siblings are struggling to buy stuff for their kids. I felt sorry for them. I told them they might have to work three times as much now for them to afford the needs of the family.
It’s just so nice to shop now with lots of variety of foods to choose from. For those people who likes to drink wine they also had a lot to choose from. I am really impress of our store now here. It’s not like in the States or Europe standards but at least we have some stuff here to choose from. I’m happy of what we have now. We can live with it.
Have fun shopping!
