MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya actor Joshua Garcia said that not only other ordinary Filipinos suffer from inflation or the rising prices of commodities. He attested that he is also affected by it. 

In an interview with and other media at the sidelines of his Cornetto ad campaign shoot, Joshua said even celebrities are affected because they also buy products. 

“Oo naman. Kasi tayong mga tao gusto natin kung san tayo makakatipid e. So apektadong apektado tayo nun. Kami ring mga artista, pare-parehas lang naman tayong bumibili ng kinakain natin. Pare-pareho lang tayo,” the “Ngayon at Kailanman” star said. 

The young actor also shared tips on holiday spending, based on his experience as someone who  wishes to spend his hard-earned money wisely. 

“Siguro isipin mo muna ng isandaang beses bago mo bilhin ‘yung isang bagay na gusto mong bilhin. Isipin mo kung magagamit mo siya ng pangmatagalan. Kasi ako ganon ako ‘pag bumibili,” he enthused.

He added that it is okay to spend money on things that one really needs and not only want.  

“Wala namang mahal-mahal sa akin pagdating sa damit. Kumbaga magagamit mo naman ‘yun ng pangmatagalan e. Yung quality lang siguro, tatagal ba ‘yung tela na ‘yon ng sampung taon,” he said. 

Reports say inflation in the country has hit 6.7 percent in September, the fastest since February 2009.
