the salary is still veryyy low even you're looking at the high salary with (so many) years of experience...how many jobs are there with 5 figure and how much hard work does those worker need to pour in to get to that position..it's not worth it considering that you work like a horse and there's no good quality of life..well that's my opinion though..:D

Salary is just a figure. You can earn 5 or 6 figures, and have to spend 5 or 6 figures for a living in certain region of the world.

A good way to look into it is to link your salary/earning with the cost of living.

yup..i'm already very well aware of this..but with my experience abroad..we still have ways to save money..things are definitely expensive in other places like Tokyo but they earnt a lot there..they could save it and use it in other countries..whereas in Malaysia, we earn peanuts and spend peanuts? (i don't think so)..and public services and facilities sux..cheapest place is Kuala Lumpur..remember, that is for the rich people to say that,not us..so we must cabut as well..earn the 5 figure salary, spend it in Malaysia..that's the best..hehe..or get into UN..RM20k in the europe with no taxes..

Ya. In today's information age, it is very possible to stay in Malaysia (or Thailand/Vietnam/Brazil/...) and earn USD or Euro money.

If the broadband infrastructure is more established, it is even possible to stay in a small town in, lets say Kelantan or Sarawak, and earn the same USD or Euro.
