Malaysian government...what a shame!

dua-dua kerja pun rasa tak cukup... anyway syukur alhamdulillah....

Subject: Can a family man with salary RM3,000 survive in Malaysia????

Let's do some simple calculations here.

In Malaysia, the average family income is RM3,000/month (where father works, mother doesn't).

It is understood that there are many families whose monnthly 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. Just nice - a moderate family ....

Calculation starts...

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

> > > Phone bill (Telekom, now TM): RM100

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

> > > Papa tea time at work / during working hrs: RM155
> > > (RM5/day, RM5 ... can eat what?)

> > > Car repayment: RM400
> > > (A proton saga aeroback, 7 years 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 cable tv,
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,
no handphone,
and etc...

Let's use a calculator to total up...
WALAO EH! Sh*t! RM3,610 already...

EPF(super annuation) haven been deducted, income tax as well........but already RM3,610 leh...

How to survive lah ladies & gentlemen???

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 Malaysian which still don't earn RM3,000/month!!!

What is this? Is this Malaysia Spirit? Malaysian Boleh again??!! Sorry... it should be Malaysians Spirit, because we're still alive and kicking!!

Our politicians must be mad!!!!

Please forward and comment the malaysian spirit. No wonder the growth of the loan shark company.!!

Well, nice to find someone with the same last 2 names. Anyway, the calculation can be further upgraded cause there are lots of things can be covered some how...

Electricity RM100 enough for a 2 room aircon on occasionally and laptop on 24/7.

Movie? Download and watch...

Anyway, nice of you dropping by, chioaz.
