Oh god no. I worked with a guy who commuted to Manila from Angeles City every day and I recall him telling me that he spent ~2 hours in his car round trip. Oh, and he had to have 2 cars with different ending plate numbers because of the vehicle coding.

Unless your partner is going to have someone drive her in every day so she can relax and watch movies on her iPad, I would strongly recommend against it.

Need more info. What do you mean by "Manila". If you mean the financial district, Makati, then people do it all the time. But I recommend living somewhere in Manila and having a car, with some car pool options on the day your car is not allowed in, due to license coding. I live in the Alabang area, which is about 10 miles south of Makati. The area here has lots of expats, and a variety of subdivisions ranging from small ranch style to grand mansions. The also a large expat population here. There's an expressway which makes getting into Makati about 20 min, but then you have to deal with the Makati traffic. I read in a local newspaper that the unofficial population of Manila was 12 million, but during the day it was 20 mil due to all the people coming in to work . So people do it all the time.
