Can a Family man with RM3K/Month Survive in Malaysia?

Let's do some simple calculations here. 

In 
Malaysia , the average family income is RM3,000 /month 
(where father works, mother doesn't). 

I understand there are many families whose 
monthly income does not reach RM3,000, 
but, to make things simple, 
let's take RM3,000 as the figure. Ok lah, right? 

Okay, let's start rolling with a family which has 
Papa, Mama, 1 daughter and 1 son. Ngam-ngam .... 

Calculation starts... 

Electricity and water bill: 
RM100 

(No air-con, No home theatre, No water heater ... ok?) 

Phone bill ( Telekom): 
RM100 

Meals for a happy family
RM775 

(3 meals on RM25/day, RM25 for 4 persons...?) 

Papa makan / teh-tarik during working hrs: 
RM155 

(RM5/day, RM5 ... can eat what?) 

Car repayment: 
RM400 

(A proton saga aeroback, 7 yrs repayment) 

Petrol (living in city, traffic-jam) : 
RM300 

(go to work, bring son to school, 
only can afford one car running) 

Insurance: 
RM650 

(kids, wife and myself) 

House repayment: 
RM750 

(low cost housing repayment for 30 yrs, 
retired still have to work to pay!) 

Tuition: 
RM80 

(got that cheap meh? i don't think so) 

Older children pocket money @ school
RM20 

(RM1/day, eat bread?) 

School fees: 
RM30 

(enough ah?) 

School books and etc: 
RM100 

(always got extra to pay in school) 

Younger children milk powder: 
RM50 

(cannot have the DHA, BHA, PHA one, expensive) 

Miscellaneous: 
RM100 

(shampoo, rice, sauce, toilet paper) 

Oh wait!!! I have to stop here, so... 
No Astro, 
no movie @ cinema, 
no DVD, 
no CD, 
no online, 
cannot KFC, 
cannot McDonald, 
cannot go Park walk during weekend (petrol expensive), 
no chit chat on phone with grandparents, and etc... 


Let's use a calculator to total up... WALAO EH! Shit! 
RM3,610 already... 

EPF belum potong, income tax lagi......... oledi RM3,610 .... 

How to survive lah tuan-tuan dan puan-puan sekalian ??? 

Our Deputy Prime Minister asked us to change lifestyle? 

How to change? Don't eat? Don't work? Don't send children to school and study? 

Besides that, I believe in 
Malaysia population, there are millions of rakyat Malaysiawhich still don't earn RM3,000/month! !! 

What is this? Inilah 
Malaysia Boleh... Sorry ... it should be Malaysians Boleh , because we're still alive and kicking!!
