a book to make it through the day

Posted in booksale, philippines, political economy by Shelf Life on September 25, 2009

When I say make it through the day, I literally mean to “make it through the day” shit where I can get my food and fare money to get to school where I work.

baGood thing an angel teacher I met two days ago liked my book deal and sold her a Margaret Atwood “Blind Assassin” book  for P130.  A good buy I think if I’ll base it on its cover design.  I have no idea though what the book is all about.

My reality that I know at the moment is that the money is all gone, again.  With P130 minus P25 for the trike to LRT, then a four piece siomai snack for P25, then, a P30 trike ride to my place, then a P12 barbeque and P20 chicken and squid balls.  That leaves me fucking P18.

Money earned from a book sale should remain in the coffers of my book sale trade to “paikot” the puhunan.  But with the chronic crisis crippling the country because of bad economic policies and endless political bickerings among the bourgeois compradors and feudal landlords, I get to spend my hard earned P130 for fare and street food because I have no money in my pocket.  Shit.

We badly need a revolution.
