RM5,000 per month is more then enough.
Generally if you are not looking for a high end lifestyle, then……
Apartment or Condo = RM1,200.00
Utilities = RM200.00 (Water + Electricity)
TV (astro) = RM130
Mobile Phone would hv to see how you control, normally should be around RM150 if you are not making international call.
Meal can if around RM500.00 to RM1,500.00 depend on what you eat.
Public transport (excluding Taxi / Cabs) = RM150.00
Income tax for non-Malaysian is 28%.

you have to live on a tight budget if you ask me. a semi furnished 3 bedroom apartment with security will cost you around rm1300-1500. utilities will cost you around rm200-250 per month. local tv station is terrible so you need to subscribe to a local satelite tv called ASTRO to be able to watch CNN, starmovies, HBO and what not. food is fairly cheap outside so it’s ok even if you don’t cook at home.
cab’s everywhere so you shouldn’t have any problem getting one. worst scenario, you can always call for one. but then again, you might wanna get out of town during the weekends. it’s a bit of a hassle when you have to rely on public transport. so you might need to ask your company to provide a company car so it’ll be safer and easier for you to move about.

RM 5000 per month is definitely enough if you stay alone. Can’t say the same if you have a family.
