The Internet Has a Lot to Say

About the #NEDA10kChallenge

By Kyzia Maramara

The National Economic Development Authority recently released a sample household budget that showed Php 10,000 is enough for a family of five to live for a month. It was just a ‘hypothetical figure’ according to NEDA Undersecretary Rosemarie Edillon, but the internet wasn’t happy. For the officials to produce a ‘hypothetical’ figure like that, we’re tempted to ask if they are somehow stuck in a previous decade where Php 127/person/day is enough.

Although the internet is mostly angry, the Filipino side of making things light also surfaced. Here’s what the internet has to say about the #NEDA10kChallenge.

1. Kasya naman pala eh?

Kasyang-kasya naman pala eh.

Isang buwan daw.


2. Mythical

As in it doesn’t exist.

But maybe we can make it after all. #TiisTiis


3. It’s a biggest loser challenge in disguise

Prove nyo nga kung posible tong 10k per month na to. Ano to, biggest loser ba? Weight loss challenge?

But seriously, Php 1,288 for house rent? San ka nakatira? Sa tent?


4. Well this made things clearer

Definitely understood what NEDA wanted to happen: lessen the population by giving everybody kidney diseases.
