But, according to Lacson, ‘’we can, but only if my family will eat only once a day, won’t brush our teeth nor take a bath, walk every day to and from our place of work but avoid perspiring so we won’t wash our clothes.’’

‘’And yes, ask my wife to stop watching her favorite telenovela because I will sell the TV set. Ask my children to throw away their mobile phones so they won’t ask me for ‘pasaloads’,’’ he said.

‘’Actually, we can survive with P10 a month as long as we all stop breathing,’’ he added.

A National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) official clarified that her P10,000 figure for a Filipino family to survive was hypothetical and was taken out of context.
