Can A Family Man With Salary RM3,000 Survive in Malaysia...!
Let's do some simple calculations here.
In Malaysia , the average family income isRM3,000 /month
(where father works, mother doesn't).
I understand there are many families whose
monthly income does not reachRM3,000,
but, to make things simple,
let's takeRM3,000as the figure. Ok lah, right?
Okay, let's start rolling with a family which has
Papa, Mama, 1 daughter and 1 son. Ngam-ngam ....
Electricity and water bill: RM100
(No air-con, No home theatre, No water heater ... ok?)
Phone bill ( Telekom): RM100
(Internet streamxy RM68 + land line RM25 = RM93, round-up to RM100 la)
Meals for a happy family: RM775
(3 meals on RM25/day 4 persons. Forget about makan in restaurant ya)
Papa makan / teh-tarik during working hrs: RM155
(RM5/day, RM5 ... can eat what?)
(A 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.
NO YET CONSIDER PETROL INCREASE 40.8%)
(Kids, wife and self. Forget about insurance la..no money to pay, lets drop it)
House repayment: RM750
(low cost housing repayment for 30 yrs, retired still have to work to pay!)
(got that cheap meh? i don't think so)
Older children pocket money @ school: RM20
(RM1/day, eat bread?)
School fees: RM30
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)
(shampoo, rice, sauce, toilet paper, saman, etc)
Oh wait!!! I have to stop here, so...
no movie @ cinema,
no KFC, no McDonald,
no jalan-jalan makan angin (vacation)
no chit chat on phone with grandparents, and etc...
nothing breaks down for repair
Let's use a calculator to total up... WALAO EH! Shit!RM2,960already...
EPF belum potong, income tax lagi........ oledi RM2,960 ....
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! !!
1)Children need to pay transport to school at approximately RM60.00 p/month. 2 children RM120.00 p/month.
So, no teh-tarik for daddy = Saving RM155.00 p/month. No Scool Fees & Montly Payment for books= Saving RM130 p/month.
Other school expeses @ RM2/- for each child. 2 children RM 60.00 per month. Tuition Fees for two children = RM160.00p/month.
If you calculate etc. and etc. RM3, 000.00 is not enough to live comfortably. You have to beg or borrow to survive, socialise.Think
of further education for your children. The rich shall become richer and the poor shall become poorer.
What is this? Inilah Malaysia Boleh...Sorry... it should beMalaysians Boleh, because we're still alive and kicking!!
Our politicians must be mad!!!!
