Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum, as you can probably tell I'm all FIRE'd up about the prospects of eventually being able to move to SE Asia (most likely KL!) and settle down there for a while, I'd like to do it while we're still relatively young and while traveling is still fun. We've been all over SE Asia and I've got a good handle on cost of living etc. MM2H looks like an attractive option but will still consider other neighboring cities. I'm aiming for 45 but that might be too early, however it will be my goal until I can prove myself wrong!
I've been working my own spreadsheets for a few years now, I admit I'm not as knowledgeable as some of the posters here but I've confirmed since joining and reading posts here that most of my calculations are fairly solid - although I haven't used FIREcalc yet. I think I'm about halfway there but that's only as good as the underlying assumptions which we all know can sometimes be as reliable as flipping a coin. He're the part that might shock some of you, we'll still have school aged kids when we hit 45, is that crazy? I've seen other posters who have kids too so I guess it happens, but still it's not common. Anyway the allure of living in the land of smiles with perfect weather all year long and half the expenses (your savings are doubled!) is just too hard to resist.
If there's anyone else out there looking at MM2H or any other similar type visas in the SE Asia region I would be interested in hearing more about your findings.
Thanks for sharing everyone...
