coinLet’s be honest, our 2 pesos can’t take us that far. My mom would tell me tales of how they used to buy things in cents. With luck obviously not on our side, the value of the peso has significantly dropped and inflation has jacked all prices up.

But we’re not here to dwell on bad currencies or how expensive everything is. I’m here to tell you that there still are few things our 2 pesos can do. With 2 coins we can get 2 pieces of candy. Okay, maybe that’s about it when it comes to products. But there is something else we can buy for 2 pesos a day – unlimited Facebook. I’m not always on Facebook but when I am, it’s unlimited and I really make sure I maximize data usage. With the new #SmartFB2 service from Smart, I can just add 2 pesos to any existing prepaid promo I’m subscribed to on days I feel like being a hermit and interact via the confines of Facebook. But you know that already, right? (If not, here’s a recap.)

What’s new and worth an update is the newest promo of FB2 where your 2 pesos can turn into a shopping worth a whopping P50,000++. Not to mention VIP treatment for a day (which is awesome) AND a chance to meet and bond with two of the Philippines’ biggest stars, endorsers of Smart Anne and Jasmine Curtis-Smith. They’re style icons in their own right so meeting them would be pretty cool.
