At least in malaysia, anyone is free to buy a 20+ year old car for RM 3-5K, without much hassle, and drive it anywhere around the country. No yearly inspections needed,unless you let the road tax lapse for 6 months or more.
Malaysia's road tax laws are stupid and restrictive though.
Only afraid when the time comes they might follow SG.....

As a young fresh grad myself, many people told me why not consider going to Singapore. They told me about all sorts of nice things there especially the high exchange rate but when I mentioned about cars, they don't have anything to convince me back because they know how much I like cars and how I like to drive.

Although there is an option like working there for few years, earn some money and come back to buy a car that I want but I think that few years will be very hard for me to go through since I can't drive over there. Besides, if I got used to the high salary offered over there, I don't think I will be motivated to work anymore if I come back to Malaysia. This is one thing that a friend had told me before. He said many people who worked overseas with high exchange rates find it hard to motivate themselves to work as an employee when they came back to Malaysia because the salary is much lower than what they used to earn but the workload is more or less the same.

One of my family friend went to work in SG many years ago. Initially cannot get work permit, but employer still wants him, so he stayed in JB and every morning, work is sent over to him by runner. Now he is a SG citizen already......lol Like you mentioned no coming back, after tasting the success......

I would never want to stay in Singapore. The stress and the kiasu environment is annoying. And I don't like the fact that men start their working careers very much later than women. Not being sexist but it sure makes chasing women of the same age much more difficult than normal. Imagine coming out to work and meeting women who've been working at least 3-5 years more than you - and they all look down on you for earning less than them and all that shit.

So Jay is a Caucasian eh? I think if he hangs around us long enough he'll start talking like a Malaysian too. With the lah and the slangs. Hahaha!
