You might have heard the news that due to the inflation rate going up and monsoons affecting the crops, prices of goods are now more expensive than usual. Siling labuyo or chili has been a particular talk of the town from a photo circulating on social media of its ridiculous pricing. Prices peaked to as much as Php 1,000 per kilo in Metro Manila wet markets and supermarkets. It’s unbelievable and upsetting especially when Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Pinol advised people to just plant siling labuyo in their backyards if they found it too expensive.
Although the photo of the Php 1,000 siling labuyo in a certain supermarket was said to be inaccurate, Filipinos still did what they did best – produce memes. Here are some of the best ones.
