Working in Makati, Any Tips?

  • on: February 23, 2016, 01:27:25 PM
I started working in Makati this month, and I had trouble adjusting to the new work environment and the venue. Do you have any life hacks on working in Makati, like route to avoid traffic, where to rent, etc. Thanks!

^ramillav - welcome back to PGG. where do you work in Makati? The best thing to do is mag rent ng condo. It helped BIG time.

anyway, I wrote something about it a while back. Hope this helps:

What I do for now is commute via colorum van in Petron/7-11 Malugay (P45) which goes to Pureza LRT Station  and Balic-Balic (there's a trip to Dapitan, too). Travel time is around 30-40 minutes. Going to Makati, I catch a trip from Pureza 7-11 then get off at either Makati Postal Office or Fire Station and walk to RCBC Plaza.

It will take time for you to adapt to the ALWAYS HECTIC AMBIANCE of Makati especially when you're on street level

You can also try renting a bedspace. There's one I know that costs only 3500 with airconditioning, wifi water and all

I'd choose Makati over BGC any time.

Yup, nag condo sharing ako when I first transferred to Makati City. Ok naman. Swerte hindi malikot at makati ang mga kamay ng room mates ko. Better find other people you know to share the unit para at least kilala mo na makakasama mo. or, make sure maingat ka sa gamit.
