Many planes passed over today, but there was no bombing in the vicinity of Iloilo, although we could hear bombing from afar.

The price of food has reached the limit! I do not believe the war prices in Europe can surpass ours at present. One egg costs 50 Pesos; a kilo of pork is 1,000 pesos; 1 kilo of beef costs 600 Pesos; 1 kilo of sugar, 50 Pesos. One bar of PMC laundry soap costs 2,500 Pesos! A new cotton dress costs 3,000 Pesos! We have already converted our drapes and curtains into dresses.
