Saturday morning after going to Quiapo church, my wife went window shopping in those shops where you can supposedly buy stuffs cheaper. We found out that that is not the case, all the time. We bought baby stuffs and found out that it was cheaper inside SM megamall dept. stores. Ack! We learned our lesson to canvass first before buying.
Well, here is another interesting note. We have stopped buying pirated stuffs for a long long time now. But, we suddenly found DVD concert series. We should have not bought these products without any good reason. Here is a reason that might surprise you.
A few years ago, my wife bought an ORIGINAL vcd of Barbra Streisand "Timeless" concert. She was not satisfied. A lot of scenes were not included. Maybe, due to lack of space sa CD. Now, we have found this pirated DVD version and It included everything!!! Great resolution as well. Cheaper price pa. They tell us that the original is better so please stop buying the pirated one,right? That is NOT the case here. Now, who is kidding who? I think the original is the bad copy, the original is the cheater and robbed us our money. So, we bought the pirated version thinking, hey we also have the unsatisfying ORIGINAL as well anyways. We call it quits.
We don't buy the pirated copies because it is bad. but buying bad quality original copies? That is just... crazy.
