Question: Hello Ms. Amor. I was just thinking if it is possible to have a budget like this, in case I will work and live in Dubai, UAE. Let us also say the work area location is near the house. Kindly give me your views. Thanks po.
Accomodation (Shared) – 500 AED
Food – 50 AED / day – 1,550 AED / month
DEWA/Internet – 150 AED
Transpo – 200 AED
Total – 2,450 AED budget for 1 month while living in Dubai
@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 !
