@acidcool: If you are single, it seems that this is an expensive budget expenses you have in mind. As Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and Filipino expats, we should always consider first the monthly remittances we need to send to our families back home in the Philippines di po ba?  The rate of conversion per 1 AED to Php varies fluctuates from day to day. 

You must also think about moderated, yet, extra expenses like;

a.spiritual development and Filipino community sharing

b. Journey for learning

c. Long life Investment

@acidcool, only you can determine and manage your finances while staying overseas, so spend your hard earned money wisely. Thanks and Good Luck !
