Okay, you've probably heard rants or read stories on how high the cost of living here in Dubai.
Choithram, one of the largest supermarket chains here in the UAE, has embarked on a very unique promotion -- a Philippine Independence Day sale -- targetting the hundreds of thousands of Filipino expatriates living in the fastest, costliest place in the Gulf.
I doff my hat to Choithram for putting one over "Filipino stores" such as DeBelchior, Philippines Supermarket, Kabayan Supermarket among others for coming up with such an idea.
I see this also as an opportunity to show my non-UAE-based friends how much are the prices of goods here.
Be guided that one UAE dirham is equivalent to 12 Philippine pesos (as of 2149H according to http://www.xe.com/). Take a look at Choitram's promo flyer and compare the prices.
