Re: Salaries...whats enough.

I take it that your above post refers to me? Well, let me tell you that when I first came here there were very, very few expats here, and that suited me just fine. But now we have a bunch of expats...

Re: What electric outlets does Malaysia use?

Just buy your electrical goods here, very cheap la!

Re: Terminated in Qatar with Loan
