Hi All,

What should be the ideal salary for an expatriate ? I am a software developer and will be moving to malaysia. I have an offer of 10k per month. will I be able to save around 5k per month, considering I am single?
#Suriya on Feb 26, 2016 :
For those who are offered a job with a salary of less than RM4,ooo, don't bother. The cost of living in Kuala Lumpur is not worth it. You're better off with less pay outside of KL. The further away from KL the better the cost of living is (except Penang and Johor Bharu).
