There are two types of living in the Philippines and its up to you which kind of lifestyle you prefer. A life in the City or a life in the province.
Your choice: City or province
There are two types of living in the Philippines and its up to you which you prefer. A life in the City or a life in the province. I find living in the province relaxing and peaceful. No hustle sounds from cars and buses or noise from people. No polluted air like in the City. Wake up in the morning with fresh air. A friendly neighborhood wherein everybody knows everybody and respecting each other. A community wherein people help each other, share lots of things and foods. Living in the province is a simple way of life. Some may find it a dull or boring way of life especially if you are used of busy life in the City.
Living in the province is having a chance to have backyard wherein you can take good care of animals like chicken, pigs and dogs. A chance to have a nice garden wherein you can plant ornamental plants and vegetables also for your daily needs. A good chance to eat daily fresh fruits, vegetables and fish from the nearby market also.
Another way of living in the Philippines is life in the City. An almost busy life in the City. Wake up in the morning with warm and polluted air. It seems you can't stay in your room without opening your electric fan or using an AC (Aircondition). Getting out of the house in the morning and see lots of people in the busy street, hurrying to go to their work and schools. Noisy streets and full of traffics. Establishments open in the morning that makes lots of people so busy. Once you are not used of life in the City you will find it so hard. Busses and cars are rushing in the streets, they caused accidents.
But this is the place where you can find malls. Places for leisure you can find everywhere. Places such as cinemas, museums, theatre, Opera, and other attractions. In short: cultural life. Beside this you can go out to dine fast food or in a nice restaurants also.
But it's in the City also where lots of crimes are being committed. Thiefts and robbers are everywhere. But the City is the place where you can earn more money, for a hopefully, better living compare to province. I experienced both ways of life and my decision at least was: Going back to the province.
