RM3k enough???

Just got this from an email..... most of you guys earns more than this already.. but that's not the point... the point is , it's just plain crazy...

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

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

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!!!!

Well, one saving grace is that @ RM3000, means RM36,000/year you probably don't have to pay any income tax, as EPF contribution is not tax deductible (maximum of RM5000/year).

So of 36k, minus 12% (RM 4320) is 31,680. Since you got dependents (kid & wife), further deduction is possible. If your taxable income is below 30k a year, it's 0%.

But yeah I agree with you, RM3k a month is not enough for yourself, let alone start a family.
