    Many Malaysians get by on RM1,000 or less per month, which is less than US$10/day.

    You can buy chicken rice for less than US$1. You can buy a pair of jeans for (say) U$3-4.

    But you can pay a few hundred dollars or more if you want a (genuine) designer label on them, and you can pay US$20 plus for "western food" (not talking about McD or KFC here).

    On the whole, I'd say the cost of living in Malaysia is generally around 25-30% of what it is in the USA. But there are anomalies, beer and whiskEy for example can be much more expensive in Malaysia than it is in the US.

    haii...just help u..

    my opinion..

    1dolar us = around RM 4.00

    food = drinks ( RM 1.00) for mineral water

    Foods -rice with add curry or anything else around RM6.00 (nowdays)

    clothes = shirt RM 20.00, pants RM50 (cheap one)

    calculate food 1 days = RM 15

    1weeks = RM105.00

    calculate clothes 1 time buy = Rm70

    1days = RM140 (2times morning/evening)

    thats all my info and suggestion,

    then u can calculate by your self

    bye bye !!!!!
