Is these true?

Haru on Jan 05, 2019:
I'm kind of confused: when I look up the average salary for a software engineer (that's my job), then the average salary per year is something around 420k php, which is around 40k per month. When I look at this overview here, the rent for a cheap appartment alone is already 20k and 40k for a bigger one. How would one even survive, if the salary is so low? Am I missing something?
