Salary RM3,000/month enough..?

I,ve found that this is very interesting to share with you guys…!! read on and think about it, where have all our money gone to..

Let’s do some simple calculations here…

In Malaysia, the average family income is RM3,000/month (where father works, mother doesn’t). I understand there are many families whose monthly income does not reach RM3,000, but, to make things simple, let’s take RM3,000 as the figure. Ok lah, right?

Okay, let’s start rolling with a family which has Papa, Mama, 1 daughter and 1 son. Ngam-ngam…

Calculation starts…

– Electricity and water bill: RM100
(No air-con, No home theatre, No water heater … ok?)

– Phone bill (Telekom ): RM100

– Meals for a happy family: RM775
(3 meals on RM25/day, RM25 for 4 persons…?)

– Papa makan/teh-tarik during working hrs: RM155
(RM5/day, RM5 … can eat what?)

– Car repayment: RM400
(A second hand proton saga aeroback, 7 yrs repayment)

– Petrol (living in city, traffic-jam): RM300
(go to work, bring son to school, only can afford one car running)

– Insurance: RM650
(kids, wife and myself)

– House repayment: RM750
(low cost housing repayment for 30 yrs, retired still have to work to pay!)

– Tuition: RM80
(got that cheap meh? i don’t think so)

– Older children pocket money @ school: RM20
(RM1/day, eat bread?)

– School fees: RM30
(enough ah?)

– School books and etc: RM100
(always got extra to pay in school)

– Younger children milk powder: RM50
(cannot have the DHA, BHA, PHA one, expensive)

– Miscellaneous: RM100
(shampoo, rice, sauce, toilet paper)

Oh wait!!! I have to stop here, so… No Astro, no movie @ cinema, no DVD, no CD, no online, cannot KFC, cannot McDonald, cannot go Park walk during weekend (petrol expensive), no chit chat on phone with grandparents, and etc…

Let’s use a calculator to total up…

What the fuck? Man! RM3,610 already… EPF belum potong, income tax lagi.. already RM3,610 …

How to survive lah tuan-tuan dan puan-puan sekalian..?

Our Deputy Prime Minister asked us to change lifestyle? How to change? Don’t eat? Don’t work? Don’t send children to school and study? Besides that, I believe in Malaysia population, there are millions of rakyat Malaysia which still don’t earn RM3,000/month..! Wat is this? Inilah Malaysia Boleh.. “Sorry..” it should be “Malaysians Boleh”, because we’re still alive and kicking!!

Our politicians must be mad..! No, all their expenses are paid by somebody else. That is why so many people are trying to get elected. With pension some more..! No, they are not mad. Only pretending…

If you speak English, have professional or trade qualifications (e.g. chef, hairdresser,etc), no health problems or criminal record, think about coming to Australia. Here the Govt gives you MYR$20,000 when you buy your first home. In NSW that can cost up to MYR$1.5 million and you escape stamp duty on house, loan, etc. You don’t have to be Malay or Muslim or citizen – only be permanent resident (PR). Howzat? Send me a brief email about yourself, work exp,education, age,etc at “easymigration@irpimus.com.au” for a free assessment. No obligation on you or me. Do it before the oil runs out.
