Cost of living in Manila region
I find your site really interesting and full of information, really usefull.
I have a question related to the cost of living in the Manila region. I plan to go work to Makati City, where i will receive at about 50 000 pesos a month ( which will be lowered by the tax, which is at about 30%, as far as i know, so let's say i will have 35 000 a month).
as far as i know, this is not a bad salary there, but how can it be, that based on the information i found here, i could not make my living there? should i be afraid? :)
because in the "cost of living" topic, these are the main cost:
- 15 000 rent
- 7000 utilities
- 3000 transpot
- 20 000 food ( is it right? it seems to be really much)
- 1000 water
so let's say 45 000. this is a normal amount of money, that a single person spends usually in manila region? i plan to live in taguig, cainta or taytay.
Thanks, i really appreciate your help,
