how much meaning of 1$ in your country?

September 9, 2007 6:37pm CST
it will be variety enough in my country. depend on the city where you stay. in Jakarta, as the capital city, $1 almost mean nothing. coz in here, with $1, you only got foodstreet with softdrink. which the taste not so good enough. if you wanna go to eat in fastfood or restaurant, it will take you about $1.5 including the drinking. in some part of city, as like in east java, $1 having much meaning coz for food you just spend about 1/2 of $1 including the drink and very delicious food. so i really wanna know how much meaning of $1 in your place?

1 dollar =7.4 RMB. in my country, you can eat a meal in 7 yuan, but it is very simple, a dish of vegetables and a bowl of rice. you can buy two boxes of ice cream. you can buy a dish of dumpling. you can buy 2.5 kg apples or pears. 1.5 kg bananas. you can buy 2 bar soaps and a piece of towel and 2 colgate toothpastes. besides, i like your discussion, then i will know the price of other countries well.

Six months ago, it was approximately Rs.45 per US Dollar. Now rupee is doing very well and hence one dollar fetches only Rs.40/- approximately. American importers of goods and services from India benefit a lot from these upward trend of rupee .

1usd here in the philippines is equivalent to 45.00 pesos which can buy a 1 kilo of rice, 2 packs of noodles and a can of sardines this can already feed a family of five for one meal time.
