Are you Filipino? Are you going to have a wedding soon? Do you think you’ll do the money dance? Do you think you’ll do the money dance even if the answer to the last question was no? Don’t want to get stabbed with pins? I have the perfect solution for you.
iPhones have paved the way for in innovative technologies. There’s a device out there called Square which enables anyone to conduct credit card transactions for a very low fee. The fee is %2.75 per swipe. Now sure if you’re a business and you own retail store the transaction fee is lower than that but we’re talking about the ability to mobilize and remove yourself from the register.
The Square gets you paid. It sure does. What does this have to do with the traditional Filipino Money Dance? Instead of doing the traditional money dance where you pin money to the bride or groom for a dance, have the Square handy and swipe away.
Here are my problems with the traditional money dance:
- Pins hurt – Yes they do and sometimes you don’t have a place to pin things. Also, imagine putting pins on your expensive dress.
- No pins or using the wrong pins – Pins run out. Although, I’m an avid wedding crasher and I bring my own pins…not straight pins, safety pins. Also, someone might forget the pins.
- No Benjamins – Guess what, you get dollar bills because people forgot or didn’t think you’ll do the dance so they didn’t hit up the ATM before heading to your wedding.

Is that a personal photo of yours? Just wondering – there’s some greens that look mighty interesting. You can delete this if you want. Just wanted to ask if you were the original owner of the photo or were unaware of what the content implied if you weren’t the original owner. Unless that’s tea leaves of course.
I found this article (or rather the photo) off of a friends FB wall. Not that I have anything against what may be implied in that photo, but I was just curious.
Wow. Just noticed it. Thanks for pointing it out. I guess I should update it with another picture.
