    Magkano na ang BASIC NECESSITIES sa Pilipinas?

    Nung umalis ako ng 2002, ang texting, piso. Pero sabi ng lola ko ngayon, SAMPUNG PISO NA!!! Totoo ba ito?

    Magkano na pamasahe sa jeep? Date 5 pesos eh. Tricycle 7.50. Taxi 25 pesos.

    Kamatis? Isda? Baboy? Gatas, etc.? Tumaas ba naman ang sweldo?

    ^ good question...been wanting to ask that too

    when I was still in Cebu mga 2004, flat rate ng taxi was 25. ganun pa rin ba?
    and when I was still in Manila mga 2001, fx fare from la salle taft to fairview was 50. and la salle taft to makati was like 20.

    Mahal na rin sa Manila. Umuwi ako last holy week, walang masyadong fast food na open except for jollibee. One meal cost me 100++ pesos na agad? kawawa naman si juan dela cruz, hindi naman yata tumataas ang sweldo.

    some are P1.00-P1.50 each

    wala ngang marating ang barya ngayun, kina-counterfeit pa! (fake coins!)

    ^just to update since last year...

    taxi flagdown rate = 50
    meals sa mga fast food = 100 pesos for a good meal
    fishball = 0.50
    regular jeepney fare = 7.50

    And up until now, fake coins are on the rampage!

    if CD is P250 to 450, how come it is sold online for $17, laki naman ng tubo! i never buy the filipino CDs online kc i think it is too expensive kahit na for pinoys living abroad..

  15. #15
    so please tell me.. if a pinoy is on a budget & wants to go home, how much do you think s/he has to bring for a month's expenses(excluding travel expenses)but including na yung room rent ( not hotel).. btw, does anyone know of a good place to rent a private room na safe & have the basic amenities one needs while in Pinas? salamat ha!

  16. #16
    kindly talk about monthly rentals for apts, rooms, boarding house, & bedspace everywhere kc maraming pinoy na backpacker lang on a budget who rather rent than stay with relatives.. thanks.

  17. #17
    Monthly rentals depende pa rin kung san area mo gusto mag-stay. Marami na rin ngayong condominiums na maayos for rent on short term basis, mejo patok ito sa mga expats at balikbayan dahil mas maganda ang security, mas maayos ang area compared to regular apartments at the same time mas mura sa five star hotels. Do you have any particular area in mind?
