I went out to the talipapa early this Palm Sunday morning to buy pandesal and eggs. Along the way I passed bent old woman walking, with a coconut palm in one hand and a stalk of wilted pechay in the other.
I’m willing to bet the palm cost more than the pechay.
A woman on the street interviewed on the news today said something to the effect that Pinoys, when it comes to God, will spend as much as they can on offerings. I’m not sure whether this applies to people who barely have enough to spend on food.
