Can a family man with Salary RM3,000 survive in Malaysia

Bila Sang Pujangga bermadah kata :



*Forwarded email from my fren... relevan laa jugak dgn isu terkini semasa... huhu



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 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... WALAO EH! Shit!
RM3,610 already...

EPF belum potong, income tax lagi......... oledi 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! !!

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

Our politicians must be mad!!!!

Please forward and comment boleh or tak boleh. No wonder so many Ah Loong around lah....

kurgkan insurans la..ahaha...aku takde insurans wehhh

nur'ain said...

secara kasarnye memang macam tak lojik langsung dengan rm3000, leh idup kt bandar.

err tapi mungkin boleh bawak bekal ke tmpt kije. huhu.

pstu tuisyenkan anak tu sendiri kt umah. huhu.

pstu insuran tu leh tangguh dulu kot. tak pun, better masuk kat tabung haji. bule kuarkan bile memerlukan.

atau kuar dari urban area. wat sementara waktu. hehe

hai ^_^

tyrark : kuncinya hanyalah berjimat cermat. rancang bajet dan beli mane yg mampu je... lagi satu tanggung hutang as possible yg boleh... tak caye ko try tanye ape kate survey...

dah tu, kalo before this pon dah berjimat cermat, kejadahnya nak ubah cara hidup lagi? nak jimat lagu mana lagi camneh?

lyark : ai rasa apa yg yu rasakan :-|

anul : kalo nak renew roadtax pon kene beli insurans gak... adeh.

mentang2 laa kite dah dapat tunai RM150/RM625 lepas neh, silap2 aribulan insurans moto/kete naik harga lagi besok...
