Facebook user Ron Navarro detailed the simple but amazing conversation he overheard while riding a bus. He said that his fellow passenger had travelled from Baclaran and was on the phone with his wife. He said that that he earned Php300 that day. And get this – with his money, he bought two jogging pants that were originally Php200, but discounted down to Php160 after he bargained. 

And what’s more, the husband was looking forward to coming home and eating dinner with his wife and son.

Meanwhile, Ron reflects that he complains about struggling to live on Php500 per day with his current lifestyle.
