Living with High Consumer Prices

Noynoy's Labor Day "gift"  to housewives and home keepers

Effective today, May 2, 2011, Shellane LPG gas will cost an additional Php3.00 a kilo increase; effectively Php33.00 per 11kilogram tank. HOMAYGAD! As what my future daughter-in-law jokingly says in her fb posts.

How do we solve a problem like increasing cooking gas prices, Maria?

One time cooking.. prepare what you can in bulk.. rice and viands can be cooked both for lunch and dinner. It's big meals like dinner and lunch that consumes a lot of energy. Out with hot steaming rice and settle for re-heats.

That's what we have been doing for the last year or  so.. so  our  gas tank makes good for 2 months.

But did I forget to mention, there's only two of us?

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
