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.
