ex. 1: Couple in province was trying to borrow 30k to deliver baby (in their province). I suggested they go to PGH and take advantage of the charity facilities. With the savings, they could even travel and celebrate around manila. They eventually delivered in their province with the respective cost.
ex. 2: Patient in province has lump in breast. She is selling cellphone and borrowing money for the treatment and operation. As usual, i advised her to take the bus ride to manila and have the procedure done in PGH at much less cost aside from the other complementary methodologies (see the PGH page under VENUES) for her treatment. Patient is pursuing her option in her province.
If you have no money. You have no choice. People jeopardize their decision making processes because of "comfort zones" et al.
The same logic can be attributed to poor people insisting on eating 3 meals a day. ANOTHER fallacy and premise that I will tackle in a later article but the gist the matter is:
- People can survive WITHOUT food.
- Eating is a LUXURY (luho in tagalog) NOT a necessity.
- If you have money. Save it for more important things, like leveraging your growth, earning potentials, career.
