    that's TRUE.. yung mga officemate ko na expat pag dyan na assigned tuwang tuwa kasi housing allowance nila 70K per month sa Ayala Alabang na sila nakaka kuha ng gaon presyo ng upa.. they live like a king pag andyan sila sa manila.. pag sa own country hirap sila sa ganon life style.

    the only problem is that wages is not proportionate to the current economic status of the Phils....as i have told my friends that Phils. is still the best place to live in terms of C.O.L.....i do hope the govt remedies this soon....id love to go back na kasi...there's still no place like home!

    mahal kase sa US, per hour ang bayad and in dollars dito, bigyan mo lang ng 500 petot, ayos na. Magkano lang naman sa yankee yun 500? kulang kulang sa 10$?

    Ang maganda is pinoy ka tapos expat ka sa ibang bansa lalo na pag multinational company. what the expats get here, you also have as a filipino expat to the US for example

    yup! ang hirap talaga. I've you've been to a plush village or subdivision you see huge houses which cost 30-40 mil, a fleet of cars, a platoon of helpers and drivers... then there are some families cramped in 1 small room in a shanty. although the gov't has programs for the poor(naturally the rich don't need it) but the middle class is somewhat left out hehehe

    sometimes you see the low wage in our country as an advantage to lure companies to invest but then the gov't wont give tax breaks(they'll milk the company for money), the power rates are high... tapos haluan mo pa ng rallies and political mumbo-jumbo haaaayyyy.... I still love it here tho, places like tagaytay, baguio, palawan... minsan mas ok na lang na tumira dun at magkaroon ng simpleng buhay hehehe
