The past 2-3 years, things have become more expensive. Most of the essential has gone up high rocket. Salary increment definitely can’t beat the high inflation. Government defines household with monthly earning with RM 1,500 and below is considered as poor. I believe more than 65% are in this category. Let us do some mathematical calculation for an household monthly earning of RM 3,000 with an average of 4 person in the family. Is it enough? What about the aging citizen? How about nurturing the next generation? Are we ready to become developed country in 2020?
Can a family man with Salary RM 3,000 survive in
Let's do some simple calculations here
I understand there are many families whose monthly income does not reach RM 3,000 but, to make things simple, let's take RM 3,000 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...
Electricity and water bill: RM 100
(No air-cond, 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)
(kids, wife and myself)
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 child milk powder: RM50
(cannot have the DHA, BHA, PHA one, expensive)
(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 eat KFC, Cannot eat McDonalds, 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...

EPF belum potong, income tax lagi........ oledi RM 3,610
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
What is this? Inilah
Our politicians must be mad!!!
