Default Penang

Hi

I'm thinking of moving to Maylasia and was wondering what expats do at there work wise?
We are both graduates. i'm a Mechanical engineer who has working in the oil and gas sector, construction sector and now specialise in renewable energy (wind farms, wave etc..)
My wife has been working as a chef and has just finished a BA in Culinary arts.
What kind of wages can be expected and is their scope to open a western resturant or bar.

My wife is a chinese national who is now a uk citizen but can also speak Chinese along with english.

We have one child and would also like to know about schools and the education system.

Any help would be great, thanks.

Just to say Hi. Cannot help you as I'm on retirement visa but there's a fair few threads on schools if you browse through the forum.

For me, I like it, but it's horses for courses. You'll have to check it out and see if you like it I guess. Are you thinking of retiring there or working there?

Take a look at the government website here

http://www.mm2h.gov.my/incentive6.php

re setting up a business under MM2H.

I haven't looked in too much detail as I am allergic to work.

Hi, got your PM and replied to it but, quite honestly, you'd do better voicing your questions and queries on here and getting a wider viewpoint. Come on, don't be shy.
