Meet the New Philippine Peso Bill

Finally, I got the chance to get my first copy the new Philippine Peso Bill.

Yup, you read that right, “new Philippine Peso bill.” It is new because the new president wants all things new that is why he also tinkered with our money. I also think that the president want to have a new set of Philippine Peso bills because he want to remove this:
.

That is the back part of 200 pesos and it depicts the inauguration of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, right after the second EDSA “People Power” deposed Erap from Malacanang. Noynoy really hates PGMA that he don’t want to see her on the Philippine Peso bill whenever he pay for his yosi (cigarettes) or for his the Diesel of his Porsche. I am also not a fan of the 200-peso note and also of EDSA II, so this is good riddance.

I got the new 20-peso bill and there are many changes on the front and back part. Here is the new 20-peso bill:
.

Here is the old 20-peso bill:
.

Notice that President Manuel Quezon in the new 20-peso bill. Also, the Malacanang Palace is transferred at the front. At the back are Banaue Rice Terraces and an animal, which is called as palm civet.

Are the new Philippine Peso Bills good things? I don’t know. What I know is that some people mistook it for play money just like the old lady inside that argued with the jeepney driver to give her real money:

Lola: Manong, manong! Ayaw ko nitong sukli mo. Play money binigay mo sa akin eh.

Driver: Nay, totoong pera po iyan. Bagong labas lang po.

Lola: Hindi! Niloloko mo ako eh. Play money ito.

At walang nagawa si manong driver kundi kunin ang “play money” at isukli ang lumang bente.

    Huwag kang mag-worry. Makatatanggap ka rin nito. Ito na ang bagong pera eh at ito na ang ini-imprenta ng Central Bank.

    @Diamond:

    Satingin ko eh dapat namang tanggalin talaga yung pic ni Ate Glo. Sobra naman kasi ginawa niya rin. Parang pagbubuhat ng sariling bangko iyong paglagay niya ng sarili sa pera.
