hi guys, im a student, working part time. Earning about 1.3k basic with allowance from my parents, about rm500 per month . Cars, tolls, petrol is all provided by my parents (card) so basicly. i have like 1.8k to spend every month.

so its a total of 1.8k per month

my usuall spending would usually be

food: rm100-150 per week, which makes it Rm500 on average
hobby: i dont usually spend on hobby, but since i recently got a job, and some extra money. i started to spend some. like enhancing my car, poker games(which i always lose) , and thats about it. most of my exoenses is on my food. Er.. i dont have the amount. but this month(september) i spend about rm700 on my car...i already stop spending on my car. waste of money. Anyways. .. this are my usual expenses.

if i dont spend on my car. i would spend like 800 out of my 1.8k ..

So guys, every month. i if i manage to save up 1k. what should i do with this 1k?

1. study abt invetment.
2. make sure u hv insurance.
3. is ur education fund support by ur parent?

since, u still a student and u can safe RM1000 monthly. Assume u r not going to use the money near future.

1. RM200 in bank as emergency fund.
2. RM300 in bond funds
3. RM500 in equity funds or stock.

u must read/study/analize/research abt the UT and stock before enter it.

Or, if u plan to use the money near future, just let it in FD.

IMO insurance is only necessary for protection and is not an investment. If you are just starting out in your career, the only insurance you would probably need is a medical insurance aka medical card to cover your medical and hospitalisation expenses. Life insurance is only important if you have dependents who are relying on your income. This is to help them cushion the blow in the event of your sudden death. So if your parents are financially independent and you don't have a spouse or child, life insurance is not so important. If your dad has bought you insurance, then just find out what kind of insurance it is and determine if you need further insurance base on your needs.

Whoa.. U are earning part-time $1.3K basic /month AND your parents are taking care of your cars, tools, petrol?
Nice...

What to do with the $1K?
Go have fun lar since investing isnt your cuppa + with BoP (bank of parents) juicing U up.
I'd definitely do that if i was in your shoes.. then maybe later (much MUCH later after the booze, women and food gets too much or samey samey), regret/feel a bit uneasy for "leveraging" on BoP rather than stand on my own 2 feet even though i can afford to).
Life's too short to worry tongue.gif

u must be hv very good parent taking care of u. thanks to them.

let say if u hv enough money but don have insurnce. u need to spend ur money for ur medical expenses. u can safe ur hard earn money if u hv insurance.
check with ur father wat type of insurance u hv. get an insurance agent, ask him plan for u. dont buy insurance for retruns. insurance is for healthy. its shud be cover all the all the expenses include disability. life policy or medical card shud be enough.

ya, gold, good too. but dont put all the money in gold, very risky. just allocate 10-20% in gold. buy from banks is better and more safe..

everybody should hv unit trust/stock in their investment portfolio.

You and your wife's expenses are very high. If I were you my first action plan would be to reduce expenses. You want higher pay but you want a 9-5 job. Unless you have a special skill that is in high demand, that is unlikely to happen in the near future. This is what I would do:

1. As you are renting, move to a house nearer to your workplace or your wife's workplace whichever is cheaper. Sell off one car (the one with the installment) and share with your wife the other. If staying near your work place is cheaper, she can send you to work and drive to work after that or you can take a bus or walk. Save RM800

2. Cut out the entertainment. RM400 for both of you is excessive. Perhaps RM100 per person. Save RM200

3. Cut out the 3G. You already have Unifi or cut out the Unifi and utilise the 3G. Save RM70/150

4. Groceries RM400 and eat out another RM220. That is a total of RM620. Way to much. It can be reduced to RM400 per month. Just cook at home more. Save RM220

5. What is AOWA set? If you have to pay installment for a 4K purchase you shouldn't buy it in the first place. Save the 4K and then buy.

6. Utilities is very high especially when both work. My household of 2 only uses RM30-35 per month of electricity and RM6 of water. You should target below RM80. Use energy savings bulb and switch of unused lights, appliances. Save RM70

Total saved is about RM1400.00. Since you are a bumiputra, you should save most if not all your money in ASB which is giving 8-10% return per annum. You can easily save RM1800 to RM2200 per month in your ASB. In two years you can afford to put a downpayment on a property of RM300K-RM350K and with low interest rate of 4% (and I think your company can even give you a 100% loan) you have a distinct advantage as your monthly for a 30 years loan is less than RM1000 per month. You can also have a child then.

Me & hubby bought an intermediate house at Klang Valley area which costs RM600,000. Loan is around RM500,000. It's expensive because it's really near to Shah Alam industrial area.

Monthly payment around RM2500 (not started yet). I saja2 calculate the loan interest using a calculator & the total interest for 30 yrs loan is RM380,000++.

I plan to sell back the house & buy cheaper house (dunno if there are cheaper houses around Klang Valley area). Or anyone have better idea? The interest is huuuuuge. We can afford the monthly payment but I'm looking forward to other smarter way so that we can get away from paying huge interest.

How big is the house? where is the location? Think whether you can rent out the extra rooms in your house to other tenant to cover the loan. Sooner or later you might need a bigger place too. However if it's not a hotspot where every one want to rent then see whether by that time it appreciated if it is you can just sell of anytime. 2% penalty though. which suppose to be around 20k +-

-> Since i am a family man, i would like to work office hour, and at night i can do part time job and also be with family. And i am agree with u, office hour job seldom offer high salary ...

3. Cut out the 3G. You already have Unifi or cut out the Unifi and utilise the 3G. Save RM70/150

-> I am also wondering why my groceries is so high since there are 2 of us only. Every time going to Giant, will spend at least RM100+.

5. What is AOWA set? If you have to pay installment for a 4K purchase you shouldn't buy it in the first place. Save the 4K and then buy.
->This is for induction cooker, water filter, 40set cooking set, steam-bot set ... maybe shouldn't buy on the 1st place.

6. Utilities is very high especially when both work. My household of 2 only uses RM30-35 per month of electricity and RM6 of water.  You should target below RM80. Use energy savings bulb and switch of unused lights, appliances. Save RM70
->Aircond on night, water heater, induction cooker, and refrigerator eat lot my energy. But i do think the aircond is the most evil one (since my wife cannot sleep without aircond, setting 22 degree, which is too cold for me )

Total saved is about RM1400.00. Since you are a bumiputra, you should save most if not all your money in ASB which is giving 8-10% return per annum.

From your comments, i assume that you are only concerned by the fact that you are paying HIGH INTEREST on mortgage.
- Not that you cannot afford to pay monthly installment
- Not that you want to make other investment
- Not to make savings
- BUT = To get away from paying huge interest

High Interest on Mortgage
What you pointed out is TRUE! The interest of 500k loan for 30 years tenure is 380k.
- Given BLR = 6.6 and your mortgage is blr-2.4, which makes it 4.2% annually)
- Current bank lock-in period is 3 years for early settlement and 5 years for refinancing (3% penalty)

But do you realize how many people out there paying these kind of interest? Everyone!
Do you think that all these people haven't give it a thought? But why?

Property Market
Property price will not go down. All my projects 20x70 all above 600k.
My team over the years are covering projects further and further away from klang valley.
Take area in in Kajang, Sri Petaling, Seri Kembangan, Nilai. Still 20x70 got 400k.
Whereas, most of my sub-sale loan above 1mil.
All client top-up due to the fact <MV.

We are transitioning from developing country to developed country.
Property price go up (Singapore).
Slowly even FD rates will be reduced (Singapore).
Banks will charge you for depositing $$ in (Japan).
My own pools of investor thinks that investing in UK is better. True.
Half of my real estate agents are selling foreign properties (loan under OCBC and Maybank).

Proposed Solution
1. Do not sell off your house.
2. Want to buy house, buy under-construction (near proposed MRT station).
3. Saving interest on mortgage - use flexi home loan.

Let's ponder this deeply, you are looking forward to other smarter way so that you can get away from paying huge interest.
But is selling the house is the smart move? Yes less interest because less value. The amount of interest you pay is corresponding to the value and yes it worthwhile because the value will only increase. Unless the MV in the area is below par. Rawang, Sepang, etc.

Flexi home loan = 1 home loan account + 1 flexi account.
Interest Rate = Amount of Outstanding Loan - Total $$$ in flexi account.

Example:
1st year
Total deposit payment = 29k
From there = 20k is to interest and 9k to principal
Thus 2nd year Outstanding balance is 500k-9k.
First few years mostly go to interest. Harsh fact. All banks. Same thing.

However with flexi. Say you got 100k for 30 years in flexi.
Interest rate = (500-100) x 4.2% [You save 185k in 30 years]
How much have you save?
Don't have 100k? Just save more every month.
Your monthly deposit = 2.5, if you save 500/monthly for 1st year only already saved 14k.

Finally, bank charge you annually 4.2% on mortgage. If you got $$ will you deposit in flexi account @ into FD (with 3.5 interest)?
Flexi account = your current account (got ATM, cheque book, monthly statement) but if offset your loan interest.
Again is selling you house is a smart move?
People in working class only thinks about saving $$$.
Not making more $$$.

House = asset if it yields return through rental @ investment
House = liability if you live in it

Hi Drummer, congratulations on starting work!

In so far as investment is concern, you feel pening because people all say that a certain type of investment is better then others. This is because people invest in instruments that they are familiar with. I myself invest in property mostly but have very little investments in stocks and gold because I am not familiar with those investments and therefore consider them risky. My advise to you would be to first start a savings plan by putting away an emergency fund (about 6 months salary) to cope with any emergencies you might have. After that, save 20-30% of your income in ASB (which is capital guaranteed) to the maximum of RM200K. While doing that you should read up on investments and research on the different risks involve in each investment. Once you are more confident in the investment you like then you can take out part of your savings in ASB to invest in the instrument of your choice. So it is important to learn on the different type of investments, the risk involve, your own risk appetite and financial goals.

As a safety engineer, I guess that your salary could be lucrative.
