replied to the thread Sharing vehicle
on the Malaysia forum on December 10, 2013:
I was told by more than one person that due to the high cost of purchasing a new or newer vehicle, people actually share vehicle.
1) Meaning someone purchases a vehicle and insurance for it, but using their money and money from others then they share the vehicle. or
2) Use other vehicles and pay as you go. or
3) Rent other peoples vehicles
Is there any truth to this concept?
If it is not, will there people be interested in this concept?
It will work unless everyone decides to take the same day off...
Car or transport is lesser priority and can be looked at after accommodations/kids had been sorted out.
For most of the MM2H whom are 'retired' here, most of them only need taxis (for weekends shopping).
Depending on where you are going to retire, there are choices of public bus as well (RapidKL / Rapid Penang).
At KL, if you are able to commute via the LRT/MRT/Monorail, that is the best options. Cheap, convenient and no jams.
That is much cheaper options than owning a car, and paying maintenance/insurance/road tax for it for the occasional ride.

What are your favorite holiday events in your area of Malaysia? Help other expats in search of some holiday cheer by sharing information on events that are open to the public or for expats.
If you would like to plan your own gathering to celebrate the holidays with other members of Expat Exchange in your area, we encourage you to plan it here. You could meet up with others at your favorite restaurant, a local coffee shop, a bar -- anywhere that's public!
Hit me up if any expats want to do a get together at Penang.
replied to the thread Is Malaysia for me?
on the Malaysia forum:
I am arriving in Malaysia in December to see if this country is ideal to take an early retirement, I'm 50.
Would be grateful if someone could help me assess the cost of living in KL or close by.
It is the monsoon season in Malaysia. But the only thing you need to worry in Malaysia is definitely not the weather.
Its either rain or shine :-)

Thanks for your helpful email, yes I am in KLand meeting up with a couple of local residents this week to get an idea of this city. I planning to be in Penang during the weekend and hope to meet up with some expats living there.
I think I have brought the English weather with me to KL but I didn't bring my umberella sadly.
Thanks and regards

replied to the thread looking for help
on the Malaysia forum:
I'm looking for anyone that might want to take on a bit of proofreading/editing or re-writing work every now and again. Actually, to be more specific, i'm looking for Native English speakers to review work, make amendments as necessary, and get paid for their troubles.
If you're the type of person that not only likes to read, but takes great pleasure in pointing out other people's mistakes, then this could be a good way of converting that into a bit of cash.
I can't promise a constant flow of work, but if you fit the bill, i will send you as much as I possibly can.
Please PM me for more details or to register your interest
Hi Phil, I just came across your post. I am available and very interested in proofreading/editing and rewriting work as this would allow me to work from home. I used to teach, edit and do translation work for Japanese companies in Tokyo for 7 years before I moved to Malaysia. Am happy to do a test run for you just to see if you would find my work satisfactory. Please email me at email@example.com.
Hi Phil , I saw your post and I would be glad to do it. I have been proof reading and editing assignments and thesis for a handful of students from Dubai, Egypt and Saudi. I am a teacher by profession and currently pursuing my PhD. However, I am not a native speaker, am merely a constant reader.
