Middle Class - how are you?

Middle class problem in modern economy.

After reading the interview from people in the so-called "middle class", sincerely I do feel that in Malaysia, earning a household income of above RM3,000 (gross income) is not considered as "middle class" but merely in the middle of Low-Income group and Medium-Income group.

Never mind the classification, it is no longer good to be in the middle class, USA has the biggest middle income group and now is suffering from higher effective tax rate and lower income prospect.

Work harder can only ensure survival, as the increase of cost of living is outrun the increase of salary, we need to work smarter as well as harder in order to enjoy a better life. Well, for me, work smarter include looking for extra source of income at lowest possible cost (i.e. required number of hours).

I love Coffee but not the Sugar

Can you imagine that you have put into your body 1 kg of sugar within next 47 days if you just drink 1 cup of SUPER 3 in 1 White Coffee a day?

One pack (serving size of 40g) contains 21g of sugar.... not to mention the FAT of another 5.2g. No wonder I have gain some weight after drinking for this type of "package coffee".

"Brain drain" vs "Brain from the drain"

Interesting statistic from World Bank.

If Malaysia has 27 million population, then it is about 3.7% was "drained away". If out of 27 million population,  14 million are aged between 21 to 55, then it is about 7.1% was "drained away". Interestingly, most of the "drained away" were Chinese.

What left in the system mainly are the "brain from the drain" - read here.
