    Suggestion. Take the 2m and buy some lots in your province. Save the 1m for emergency.

    Kung cocomputin mo ang parking cost, makikita mo dun madrdrain ang pera mo. Plus the gas prices pa ngayon.

    I have to be honest, 28 is kinda old na nga for a guy to not know how to drive. Turn off nga yun hehe

    i learned to drive at 28.
    that was the time i could already afford to buy my own (used) car with my own money.
    i didn't want to ask for car money from my parents.

    adjusted for inflation, it was nowhere near 1M, my bank account was.

    and yes, take the advice from the others.
    buy real estate. its value will only increase. hindi pa nababangga.
    just don't buy where they will put up a big road or lrt.
    heh heh.

    But the car is with you, in your house. And I assume you've had several cars before that

    I'm waiting for uls to see this thread and his explanation on what car ownership entails. Two reasons why TS has so much cash: no gf and no car. Hehe. Seriously though.

Moreover, I can bring it in Metro Manila (where my work is) from time to time then I can pay park na lang if ever I buy one. I also think that driving is a skill din... and sooner or later I will purchase a car so why not start learning to drive and buy a car now.

    Sa mga nagtatankng where I got the money, from working in corpo + side line projects (home based). Basically yeah, I am living to work and no social life.
    Congrats on your savings! Do you live a frugal life? Kahit single ako i wouldnt save that amount of money. Should I buy a car just to have a hobby?

    Agree ako sa used car unless your family sa province eh gagamit din why not buy a bnew na mga CUV or pick up.

    Right now, I do not have any gf yet I am also somewhat introvert and do not have any friends. I also do not have a hobby. Is it a good idea to learn how to drive then buy a brand new car worth 1M for me just to make it a hobby? 1 M because thatís the only lowest price of the car na may side airbags (safety kasi yung main concern ko.) I really want to learn how to drive car and syempre, I want to drive my own car after I learned driving. And also, I want to attract girls din and syempre mas convenient na pumunta sa nililigawan ko pag may car ako. Problem is, baka iuwi ko lang yung cAr sa province and baka hindi ko rin siya magagamit lagi since may work ako weekdays. Do you think it is a good decision po?
    If you can live without a car, no need.

    Try to find your own property (a nice, decent condo unit and maybe a lot in your province or preferred settle down place later on).

    You don't need to own a car to learn to drive though Maybe I just come from a very traditional family where manly skills are taught early. My brother was taught to drive at 11 or 12. I had to wait until 16.

    I agree. Can 2M buy a condo in Metro Manila?

    Definitely no. Unless dun sa sobrang layo.
    Pede naman sya mag loan kung gusto ni ts. Pero kung sa MM lang, I'll buy a townhouse or lot na lang instead of a condo.

    Enjoy life. Mas valuable ang time. Experience things, socialize, mag gf ka, own a pet, sumali ka sa organizations sa field mo, buy things that you desire, travel, food trip, kain sa mga resto na mahirap ipronounce yung menu items, hanap ka ng hobbies na magugustuhan mo.Pwede mo naman gawin lahat ito na hindi nasasacrifice yung savings mo. Lagi ko nga sinasabi balanse dapat, work hard, party harder!
