MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – So it turns out it was not only former President Manuel Roxas who left from the one hundred peso bill. Apparently, the Aquinos —- Ninoy and Cory — have also been erased from the 5 hundred peso bill.
It all started when a lady withdrew several P100 bills from an ATM only to learn that the photo of Roxas has been erased.
When it launched an review into the mystery, the Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas (Central Bank of the Philippines) detected several P500 bills with the faces of the Aquinos all but erased from the paper currency.
So before you discharge those red envelopes to your godchildren this holiday season, make certain there are no blank faces on your peso bills.
