Some serious inflation in the mailing business

I couldn't help but be amused at what I received in the mail. It's a package with character...a work of art, methinks! There's a total of 131 stamps in 17-peso denominations (43 pesos to 1$CDN). No single, automated "Pitney-Bowes"-type label here. The painstaking arrangement of the stamps, the time it took to put on the stamps, the care that went into the taping up of the whole package, and more importantly, the choice of denomination, confirms in me the Filipino mindset. I love it!
(That's 4 prime numbers in a row...I should buy a lottery ticket.)
