e might be ranting out against the current prices of most vegetables and goods, but one thing that is really unbelievable is the rise of the prices of ‘siling labuyo’, or chili peppers. The highest price ever recorded recently for a kilo of sili would be PhP1,000, or around $20, with current prices as of this writing between PhP400-600 or $7-11 USD, blaming the quick rise of the inflation rate, and other circumstances such as weather.
Of course, being a Filipino, means you can still find something funny about these situations, and as said, netizens have shared some of their takes about sili, and how it changed the views of being a filthy rich Asian, if you are lucky to have plenty of them at your disposal. Here are a few of them, and let us know what you think.
