Which figures are correct?

During the SONA last Monday, President Noynoy Aquino cited that only around P100-B is left out of the P1.54 trillion budget.  A look at the Bureau of Treasury website shows that only P788-B has been spent.  So the question is: which figure is correct?  In her analysis, Prof. Winnie Monsod has also raised this doubt, saying that P-Noy’s advisers might have given inaccurate figures to the President.

Here is a screenshot of  the figures.  You can go to the Bureau of Treasury website to read more about the budget.
