A decent 2-3 bedroom apartment in the vicinity of the city can costs anywhere between $400 to $2000; depending on the location, the amenities, the interior furnishing of the place.
Internet connection is stable with speeds up to 30Mbps, with costs of 20Mbps about $80 a month. Women are the fairest here amongst all the South East Asia countries :P Alcohol is readily available, but we have on of the highest prices in the world due to sin tax. You can get 3 pints of Guiness, Kilkenny, foreign draft beer for $16 so its about $5 per pint.
Drugs is not so common, if you get caught dealing, you're off to hell. But knowing the right people will get you stuff.
I am actually from Borneo, the state of Sarawak. Eco tourism is a big industry here in Sarawak and Sabah with plenty of outdoor activities. Some places you visit will be like going back to 50 years in time hehe
