Are you sure 10-13.5 million per month?! It is not too much lower than headachy-PhD salary in Europe. Let's go to Hongkong... he..he...

PhD ngga aka hasil komkritnya kecuali cuma cuap-cuap dan kertas doank. Lebih baik TKI/W lah...Gara-gara PhD nggak becus, akhirnya rakyat banyak yang cari makan di luar negeri.

Anonym,
Trimakasih atas sanjungannya. Dengan kata lain anda ingin berkata: PhD yang becus adalah penyelamat rakyat, bukan politisi busuk itu... So, I am in the right way... he..he...

Den, believe me, you won't compete with those TKIs... Their job is not your comparative advantage. I doubt you can be as efficient as them when it comes to washing dishes plus cleaning up the house plus caring the kids.

AP, you may be right. Besides some people may consider their preferences and constraints.
