Boleh ke survive dengan gaji RM3,000 sebulan??

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 (Internet streamxy RM68 + land line RM25 = RM93, round-up to RM100 la) 
  • Meals for a happy family : RM775 (3 meals on RM25/day 4 persons.  Forget about makan in restaurant ya) 
  • 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. NO YET CONSIDER PETROL INCREASE 40.8%) 
  • Insurance : RM650 (Kids, wife and self. Forget about insurance la... No money to pay, lets drop it) 
  • 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, saman, etc) - mana cukup!!!!

Oh wait!!! I have to stop here, so...
  • no Astro,
  • no movie @ cinema,
  • no DVD,
  • no CD,
  • no toys
  • no computer,
  • no KFC, no McDonald,
  • no insurance
  • no jalan-jalan makan angin (vacation)
  • no chit chat on phone with grandparents, and etc...
  • nothing breaks down for repair

Let's use a calculator to total up... WALAO EH! RM2,960 already?! EPF belum potong, income tax lagi! Oledi RM2,960?! How to survive lah tuan-tuan dan puan-puan sekalian???

How to change? Don't eat? 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!!!

See from that figures than only kakak realise how difficult for those who income less than 3K. Poor thing whether our top persons there notice these or not?...

How about those who have more than 2 childs and their requirement as kids/teenagers...Sigh also...
