that one (1) bottle of beer bought from a convenience store in California costs about $2-$3. Yes, that's one solitary bottle. Meanwhile, for that same amount, I can get at least four (at least 4!!!) tall bottles of Red Horse in good old Islas Filipinas.
So why should I go abroad again to earn a living and lose all of it for expensive beer especially when I can easily get foreign beers in Makati?
