    Your brain or failing that a calculator can't work it out? And my mates are going somewhere a lot cheaper than Shanghai to live. I did post the name of city on another thread but can't remember off top of my head.

    I had friends teaching in Bangkok in 1999-2003 who were earning over a 100k baht a month back then obviously they were qualified teachers in private and international schools not sex pest TEFLers.

    TB Are you confused that maybe you live beyond your means or you don't know how much you earn, your happy to say you spend a 100k a month, so surely your happy to tell us your monthly wage

    Why does it matter how much she earns, her monthly outgoings are equivalent of 100k baht a month and wants to know how much costs to live in Bangkok for a similar standard of living.

    I do spend about 100,000 thai baht a month, with rent and then about 64,000 thai baht to spend on utilities/travel/entertainment. Rent is high here, but I do get that money from my school to pay my rent, so that helps.. . I guess then I spend about 64,000 thai baht, on utilities/entertainment/ travel..and not always that every month.

    If own your house outright like me and got no debts then yes having 2k to spunk a month can live a 'minted' lifestyle as a bit like life in Nakon bumfuk nothing to spend your loot on here.

    well, I see you post how much you supposedly used to spend in BKK, so if you can tell people how much you spent whats wrong with posting your earnings?

    Because earnings and expenditure are 2 totally different things although in the time period 1999-2003 on a bad month id make 200k baht a month, best month was 500k baht of which I had quite a few.

    The problem I always have with people who say they have this or that is that the people usually that do have, don't usually publicise that fact they do have, and the wannabes say they have but don' have.
