Newbie looking for information
We are Mike and Maggie. Currently living and working in London, have done so for the last 7 years, have had enough and have been offerred to work in Kuala Lumpur.
I am a project manager in the rail industry and wondered what the average salary is likely, or should, be? Or how much would we need to live comfortably?
Cost of living looks a bit less than UK, especially the rental prices for condo's and apartments etc. A 3 bed flat would be ideal. Any guidance there would be good too.
I have spoken to some Europeans who have lived in MY and haven't had anyone say they didn't like it. I am an avid photographer, especially of wildlife and natural surroundings, so I am expecting some good subject matter?
Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hi property cheaper than London but KL is expensive by Asian standards. A good bungalow is 2 million rm
2nd most expensive place in the world for cars, booze is very expensive and designer goods and computers etc are more expensive here. Otherwise most things are cheaper.
A ford fiesta will set you back 25,000 pounds. When I see malaysians eyeing them up in shopping malls I feel bad for them!
Great photography opportunities in Malaysia and SE Asia in general. Great for travel!
