Ya, I have the same feeling as skunk. Even my malaysian friend is telling us all kinds of stories how his sister house was robbed, how unsafe he himself is feeling when walking on the street alone. His sister return to her house once a week because working in other town. All her valuables ie. TV, sofa ... were gone !

One of my relatives's car, got smashed even parked at crowded place in JB. :(

Well you know what, I have stayed in Malaysia (JB) for 2 years actually and commute to Singapore to work. Initally, there were alot of questions posed by my colleagues and even my wife was not convince about staying there.

When I first moved to JB, I was quite surprise that in the early morning (about 6 - 6.30 am) there were so many Singapore registered car going into Singapore. My initial expectation was to find mostly Malaysian registered car but I was proven otherwise.

As to personal experience of living in Malaysia, all I can say is that it is a laid back kinda of life and extremely low overheads (courtesy of the exchange rate). As for crime, do your homework before you make your move. Find out about the safety aspect of your neighborhood - does it come with gated security and is it already a populated development.

We were having a pleasant time living in JB to the point that my wife felt sad to move back. We had no choice but to move back due to the preparation needed for my girl to start her schooling.

Only way for you to really know about the place is to live there and not by listening to what others have to say. Experiencing it first hand may actually change your perception.

Hi NIEtrainedTEACHER,

I guessed in some part of JB still safe to live? Generally it is a good place for retirement? Maybe should ask the Financial Planner do retirement plan staying in Malaysia. An agent told me I require $1 Million to retire in Singapore

Titank,

$1 Million dollar is the magic number that everyone in SGP is saying needed for retirement. But then again, it all depends on the lifestyle.

But thinke of this, with that $1 million, you will live like a king elsewhere in South east Asia... Hmmmm quite a tempting idea... Would love to be in Hua Hin for retirement...
