    Not really. Only naive expats think they can have a good living standard in the Philippines with a 1000 US$ a month. But with this kind of money you don't live well here. Meaning by western standards. But then again, it depends. So what you call a "thinking process" is really for those people having wrong perceptions about the Philippines. Those who know what to expect and knowing the Philippines well can still make a better living than back home. Even with 1000 $ a month. (no family). I think with 2000 $ you live quite well here. In Europe you would be considered as rather poor.

    Are you asking because you are considering moving here, do you want advice? What is your budget if you are?
