Hi, It all depends on how well you can manage your money. If you are living in a high society here in the Philippines. 500 pesos would probably last for day. You should consider the place where you want to leave. try going to wet markets instead of supermarkets. It will defifitely saves you lots of money. To have a descent living here you got to earn atleast 120,000 pesos a year. But if you want to save some for your future, try for an income of 180,000 pesos.

I guess 1 INR = 1.1 Peso, and in india also you have to earn 120000 INR per year to be considered a good income. I don't want to live in crowded places, a cool peaceful place is my best choice to live and work. What you say?

Try to live in Cainta or Pasig. It is a nice place to live in and also close to a lot of companies

Hello. I am wondering what kind of Job you want. The very popular job right is in the information and communication technology industry. People who start in the said industry earn as much as 350$ per month, but it goes higher depending on the quota or something. Well, people who are into development work may earn around $200 per month. The expenses depend on the place where you want to work, like if you are working in the Metro Manila area your everyday food consumption may go as high as 7$ per day, and the house rental may go as high as 200$. I am wondering where do you plan to work and what kind of work?
