Are prices rising a lot in the PH?

Yes, and no.  10 years ago things were cheaper and you got 42 pesos for a US$.  Now things are more expensive and you get 52 pesos for a US$.  Its the rest of the world who find it expensive.  Canadians got 40 pesos for a CDN$ 10 years ago and still do.  Its the up and down roller coaster than makes it hard to budget if you are on a fixed income.

Funny enough, on a low income it is not cheaper.  In my country the government gives so many handouts to low income people that if I took a wife and kids back to Canada with no income we would have a good life on the government tit.  But its not in my nature to do that and besides, life might not be cheaper here but its more fun.

52.42 right now on XE.  Earlier it was 52.35 so I went down to BPI to exchange.  Waited 20 minutes and had to leave to P/U my daughter at school.  Hopefully good karma was with me and it will continue to rise until I can get over there again.
