The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) reported that 4,216 Malaysians migrated to Australia for the period January-August 2007.

This is the 6th highest, after Britain, India, New Zealand, China and S Korea.

And Singapore ranked 11th, with 2,348 migrants to Australia for the same period.

According to ABS, most of the migrants from Msia and Spore were accountants, managers, engineers and building and computer professionals.

I've seen statistics on this in an Aussie paper, but I don't have the article.

I think Melbourne in absolute numbers. Perth in relative numbers.

It depends on what skills u have....Ppl with skills like chef, plumbing, accountants and other skills in demand ertc can earn quite a bit. One thing though housing are not cheap with booming prices.

Doing business here is good...much easier than in bolehland...no greasing or kow towing to bozos councils ppl.....less high blood pressure :D

Expensive housing!

No teh tarik or roti canai! Malaysians would be climbing the wall in sheer boredom after a while!

I am reasonably familiar with Perth (a close relative lives there, and I have been there several times). What strikes me about Perth (and also about Sydney and Adelaide) is the relative lack of interaction between white Aussies and the Asian migrants from Spore, Msia and India, apart from the "hello" and "goodbye" and the normal communications in the workplace. Other than that, the Singaporeans, Malaysians and Indians are pretty much in their own little spaces.

Come to think of it, that's pretty much what's happening in cities like KL and Spore where there is limited interaction between different racial groups.

Life is more than just food...it is a better environment for recreational activities.

Lack of interaction? My observations are that the Asians tend to stick to their own group while some Aussies do have some superiority complex. Other than that, like any relationship, you have to work on it and really assimilate into the community. If one bought the properties in the late 90s, well shouldnt be a problem now :D I would rather stay on here then get stuck in bolehland in retirement.

SO A MM2H IN THE OTHER DIRECTION???

From Report for period 2002-2005 - 6695 approved http://www.secondhome.com.my/mm2h-press-release.html

2006 - a total of 1728
http://mm2h.motour.gov.my/cms/uploads/pdf/statistic.pdf

So, should the SSP (Selangor Structural Plan) be forecasting a Development of extra 43,300 HECTARES? Or, DBKL to project a population of 297595 in 2000 to d to be 445000 by 2020??

I'd say that depends very much on yourself. If you make an effort to mingle, then you will mingle. If you open up to get close friends of other races, then you will gain close friends of other races.

Hmm...you might just be on to something there!

My close relative who's settled in Perth (btw, he is still holding on to his Msian passport) - one of his sons is married to an Irish Australian girl. Another of his sons is engaged to an Italian Australian girl.

It must be something in the Perth water supply!

Hopefully our Malaysian government will do something to retain our skilled people before it becomes too late. If they don't cherish their own people, other countries will so much so that socio-economic development in our country will be slowed down. We are still the looser, at the end of the day.

Main factors causing people to emigrate out could be:
-security threat in the country
-political and goverment unstability
-attracted by better opportunity overseas (braindrain)
-blatant corruptions and lack of confidence on our leaders out there who talks so loud and nothing comes true

Pak Lah should know what i mean here.. *sigh*

Don't think so, brudder. One can always put one's kids in Spore schools! A lot closer to home.

I think those S'poreans who have migrated to Ozzieland and NZ would disagree with you.

I believe tesdnima is right about education being the reason for migration - they are trying to get cheaper Univ fees by being PRs. But in a previous discussion, I did ask if it was true that the Aussie govt have made it compulsory for PRs to pay for education unlike the citizens becoz, they aren't dumb, they know why some people choose to migrate there.

As for why not do schooling in Singapore? Well, some people do believe that the curriculum in S'pore is tougher and it is indeed tough to get a place in NUS if you are just a mediocre student.

BTW our dear Home Minister said in dewan that 106,003 Malaysian have surrendered their citizenships, and 5310 have them revoked.


My personal opinion is that 106,003 have surrendered, what about those who have migrated but not surrendered.

Need info, can someone enlighten....on what grounds can a citizenship be revoked?


Pak Lah will say... tahun tahun ada orang pergi... what's the big deal!

If we take the numerous Malaysians or ex-Malaysians living in OZ and UK; the reason they stayed has nothing to do with education; but education had a role in getting them there in the first place by making them used to live in another environment and appreciate the many freedoms and pluralities that we do not enjoy back home.

Yup, Mr Chang - you are right. It's becoming increasingly difficult to get into the NUS Law and Medical Schools, even if you have a string of straight As in your A Level exams.

The thing is that the Spore school system is churning out straight A students at both the O and A Levels. So much so that the 3 local universities in Spore - NUS, NTU and SMU - are swamped with applications from academically over-achieving students.

Not to mention ever-increasing competition for scholarships in Spore.

Which has led several Spore parents to write complaint letters to the local newspapers.

To throw in a kicker, how does one grant university admission on the basis of meritocracy, when a large number of applicants have the same outstanding academic results for their A levels?
