Monthly rent of a fully furnished studio-type apartment with rooms and baths in Cebu costs around P7,000 to P12,000 while the same accommodation ranges from P18,000 to P25,000 a month in Makati, Taguig, Pasay and the cities around it. Meals can also be bought from P200 to P1000 from famous cuisines and restaurants which is equivalent to P500 to P1500 if purchased within NCR.
Otherwise, the final output will still depend on one’s lifestyle and preferences.
