MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – So it turns out it was not only former President Manuel Roxas who disappeared from the one hundred peso bill. Apparently, the Aquinos —- Ninoy and Cory — have also been erased from the five hundred peso bill.
It all started when a woman withdrew several P100 bills from an ATM only to discover that the photo of Roxas has been erased.
When it launched an investigation into the mystery, the Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas (Central Bank of the Philippines) discovered several P500 bills with the faces of the Aquinos all but erased from the paper currency.
So before you distribute those red envelopes to your godchildren this holiday season, make sure there are no missing faces on your peso bills.
