I'm qualified but with no previous experience. I have no idea what the cost of living is like in Malaysia nor what salary to expect. Would someone please let me know if this is a reasonable amount and whether I can live off it?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Living Cost in JB are estimated as below:
Accomodation (Rent) = RM600 (normal terrace house in near town housing estate)
Transportation = RM250-300 (calculated with an average of RM7 per trip on a cab)
Meals = RM450 - RM500 (calculated with an average of RM15 per day)
Above are those which does takes a big chunk of ur salary. set aside abt RM200-250 for others petty expenses and another RM300 for some basic entertainment.
