PhP 4 Million To Live Again



An interesting story in today's paper --- it's about the cost of having a second life --- often too high for most people. If you don't have the money, you get to live the only life you were born with.

The opportunity to live life again (not just being alive again) is priceless. But of course, he can well afford the PHP4 million.

does the bill include his doctors' professional fees? i'm interested to find out whether his doctors billed him for their services. it isn't everyday that you get to treat the first gentleman.

Not yet. Professional fees of the medical team are NOT included in that estimate. The good news is that the surgeon waived his fees. But I do not know about the rest...most of them are internists.

Jusme, kung ako pala yun mamamatay na lang ako sa kandungan ng pamilya ko. Meron naman sigurong ibang options na mas mura no doc? I'm sure kasi mahal ang ospital na pinasukan at syempre pa, everything goes with it.

Still, baka to die na lang ang option left for me should I have the same affliction.

I remember leaving a comment this morning. It seems you did not get it.

Anyway, what I wanted to say was if it had been me, I would have just died in my children's laps. Oh well...

Money might not buy you happiness but it can surely buy you a new lease in life.

Most of us are just too scared to die. What is 4 million PHP if it means to avoid death, even if it is only for a while? :)

4M - packingsheet. di ako nagtataka dahil sinigil ako ng st lukes ng over a 100K para sa appendectomy.

sana mas magkaroon ng tutuong kahulugan ang buhay ng mga arroyo pagkalabas ni mike.
