Living in Malaysia is Expensive PDF Print E-mail
Fuck You

You might not notice this and I believe that it’s a huge lie when someone says that living in Malaysia is cheap. Of course there are several things that come cheap in Malaysia but then again if you take a look at our daily necessity, it’s really a bomb to your wallet.

I’ve been hearing again and again from friends, newspaper, radio, TV, the government that living here is cheap. Think again,

1. An average fresh graduate’s pay is roughly RM1500 to RM2500. 10 years ago it was also in that region. 10 years later which is today we are still getting the same pay. Not to mention, professionals out there, yeah this includes you as well – 10 years ago you were getting an average of RM3000 to RM5000 for a senior to managerial level position. Guess what? You are still getting the same pay!

2. Apart from the never existing pay increment, you don’t even notice this – Cost of living keeps increasing! For example, 10 years ago fuel was roughly RM1 per liter. Buying a Proton car was roughly RM25,000 and above. Guess what? Fuel now is RM1.92 per liter and buying a Proton car is RM40,000 and above! Cheap car also got – neh the Iswara new model la, so lousy after using 2 years the whole damn car is rattling!

3. Everything is increasing except your pay! Buying petrol in US costs $10 per week. How bout Malaysia? RM40 to RM50 per week. Buying a nice car like Jazz is roughly $19,000 or lesser in the US. Malaysia? You earn RM2000 and you have to fork out RM100,000 and more for a damn Jazz!

Malaysians are too contented. That’s too bad. Not only lazy to do more, they don’t even realize the reality of what’s happening around them. I can tell you – this is an economic crisis and before you know it there won’t even be a middle class anymore. Like stated in the book written by Donald Trump and Robert T. Kiyosaki, in the future there are only the rich and the filthy rich and the poor or hardcore poor. Still want to be where you are today?

Time to choose sides people!

True about the rising cost of living. Its getting pretty hard here to live. Owning a car is a big step.
