    If that happened, hindi ko pa kayang magpakasal and wala pa kong kotse or bahay ngayon. Doctors only start earning money in their 30s.

    Ang starting salary ng private hospital for residents, nasa 18k lang. Pag public, nasa 40-50k pero mas toxic. You only really earn the big bucks pag consultant ka na.

    Tama rin. Most of my friends are doctors, yung iba intarmed. Can confirm your statement. (Doc D, tama naman diba?) Di ko tiningnan yung salary part when I was looking for a course. Just thought that the MD life wasn't for me haha.

    Owning a vehicle is overrated ... if you really need to buy a car, consider a second hand vehicle ... that will teach you more about owning a car ...

    Same here. Plus not all doctors earn big, I know a lot na middle class. I am not gonna study for 8 to 10 years and I would lose my mind if I have to deal with sick people daily. And what if a patient of mine dies. I can't handle it.

    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?

    haha

    he can afford it naman

    he's buying the car in cash unlike other people hulugan

    and tuloy tuloy naman ang income niya so expenses will come from his income not the 2M left sa savings

    How about a big touring bike? Might cost a little more than a car though. Pwede rin to pang gimik, angkas mo chicks sa likod mo... hehe

    Talaga?

    By commute, it would take me 1-1.5 hrs to get to my office. By car, 20-30 minutes. Not to mention the stress sa pakikipagsiksikan sa MRT, sabit sa jeep, plus having to be extra vigilant sa snatcher/holdup, etc.

    Pag nasa mall tapos sobrang lakas ng ulan, napakahirap maghanap ng masasakyan pauwi, kahit pa Grab or Uber. Sobrang hassle lalo na kung marami kang dala.

    Pag nasa probinsiya ka, just to get to the next town, you have to choose between a dangerous tricycle on the national highway, or an equally dangerous bus.

    Yes, it's perfectly possible to survive without a car, just as millions of Filipinos do. But having a car is so much more convenient especially given the context of our awful public transpo system. So if you can afford it, why not?
