Hi there,

Cost of Living really depends on your lifestyle. I would however advise you to negotiate a schooling allowance into your contract.

Have a look at the Cost of Living in Malaysia page for a general overview.

Hi ,

I am local, from Malaysia.

There are a lot of condo's/apartment (old & new) around Brickfield's area.

Time travel will all depend on the traffic condition. If the road is clear , you will able to reach Petaling Jaya around 20 mins (by car).

I came across this webpage that can help expat like you to survive in KL. A lot info on transportation , school and so many more.
