  This may sound a bit silly.  ;D ;D
  Recently, I check out with my senior friend about his job at overseas. He is earning 5000USD per month. I am surprised as engineers here only earns RM5000(1429USD) per month.  ???
   I am still studying my bachelor degree in Electrical & Electronics. I am just curious what is the average salary offer in your country? Secondly, anyone knows where I can search for working environment info such as stability of job, living expenses, and taxation in other countries? TQ ;)

In the USA, anywhere from $45k to $75k a year, depending on geography, speciality and expertise.  This is for a Bachelor degree.

In Australia it's anywhere from roughly AU$40K to say AU$60K per year. (US$35 to US$55K)
But it really does vary a lot, there is no rhyme or reason to it.
Sadly you often don't get much more with experience. e.g. I know guys with decades of experience getting under AU$80K
For electronics designs roles in Australia you are lucky to get over AU$100K at any level.
There is more money in programming, management, or sales.

Bear in mind that you can't simply use currency exchange rates to compare salaries due to costs of living differences.

Chinese wages are low, but a 660ml beer costs GBP0.28 over there  ;D

True. I may earn like a typical person in overseas but the exchange rate will means a lot for my parents back home. At least I can relieve their burden or probably clear some of their bank's debt. I just need to spent wisely. ;D
