Bamboo savings bank or alkansya is popular for many Filipinos. Not only do they come with a cheap price tag, it is also harder to get your money out of this savings bank. Compared with the typical piggy banks or decorative containers that we can easily buy from the mall, these fancy banks can be easy to open. Since they are designed for reuse, it is easier for you to get the money anytime you like, making saving money harder.

However, it turns out that these bamboo alkansyas also have their downside! Since it’s wood, termites might possibly live inside and eat your paper bills!

A Facebook page named Walwal shared several photos of the paper bills defaced by the termites. If you think getting your P20 destroyed is already heartbreaking, wait until you see these photos! There were several P1,000 inside the alkansya!

Although the money bank was filled mostly with P50, there is also a handful of P100. Luckily, there are still some bills that can still be saved. Since the termites did not eat everything, there were still bits and pieces left.

All the owner needs to do is to clean the bills and bring the money to the Bangkok Sentral ng Pilipinas. They can provide him with new bills in exchange for the eaten ones.

We’re happy that he can still replace his money! If not, we will surely cry with him.
