My husband went to our bank the other day to request for a bank draft because he wanted to send a little amount to his godson in the US who just graduated from high school.
Medj nalungkot kami when we learned na ganito na pala ang palitan ng Canadian to US dollar ngayon.
Waaah! It will mean one thing -- no more cross border trips for now. Naglu-look forward pa naman ako na mag-Seattle uli at mamili ng Tender Juicy hotdogs sa Seafood City dun. Saka mag-Jollibee uli syempre. Pero it's really not the best time to go out of Canada. Walang value ang datung namin.
My in-laws, who are based in California, were also asking us to visit them again (kahit kami lang daw ni Nathan since may trabaho si Ford). Ang sabi namin mahirap kasi nga ang baba ng Canadian dollar. Ang lahat ng bilihin dun parang magiging sobrang mahal ang labas, hindi ka rin mage-enjoy kapag ganun.
Hay, kelan kaya tataas uli ang Canadian dollar? Mahirap i-wish na bumaba ang US dollar eh.
