There would be some people who would dispute your using the closing level of the peso on December 1, as the winning number for that bottle of Dom Perignon. Why not the closing level on November 29, which is actually the last day in November when the peso was traded? It would enrich Philippine jurisprudence if this question would be decided by the Supreme Court. However, with the Chief Justice of the Philippine Supreme Court currently too busy with some thing or the other, and the one in the United States reoccupied with dimples and pregnant chads or whatever, this gracious loser concedes.
By the way, according to my resident expert - my 13-year old daughter - Christina Aguillera is the better dancer.
