You can retire now if you retire in KL. Let's assume you have no kids.

1. Sell your condo and pay off your loan. You get $860k cash balance.
2. Sell your car. You get $90k.
3. Combine all your cash and your investments in a 5% dividend yield stocks. The total amount you invest is = $(860+90+690)k = $1.64m. Your annual dividends is $82k pa.
4. Convert your dividend into RM, you get RM213k pa.
5. You will live rich in KL with RM213k pa.
- rent a 3 bedroom condo in the posh Mont Kiara area - only RM3k pm or RM36k pa
- buy a brand new local car RM60k
- food (eating at restaurants) RM3k pm
- lots of savings
