Ringg-it in

How much does it costs to live in Malaysia as compared to Singapore?

Have you ever wondered about it? Especially with the dramatic drop in the value of our neighbour’s currency.

Here’s an infographic from Loanstreet.


Now you know how many extra drinks you can get in a Malaysian Starbucks compared to one at home.

    Please show proof of RM0.70 bus fare, RM12.20 Starbucks, RM14 cinema and the most importantly RM4,492.30 kind of salary… Don’t bullshitting that living in Malaysia is cheap… If it’s really cheap, please migrate there…

    That’s not a good way to compare the standard of living in both countries. The standard of living in Malaysia is higher than Singapore. Don’t convert the currency. Imagine someone earning 4000 in respective countries. And look at the cost from this angle. Thinks about it.

    Do a dollar to dollar comparison. You can have 2 drinks of Starbucks in SG with SG salary compared to Malaysia..
