    While keeping in mind low cost of living and salaries, so no Japan, Singapore.

    I did some research and it seems to be Malaysia. It's their official second language and more than 60% speak it.

    What do you think?

    I want to set up an office somewhere in Asia and hire a bunch of writers that can work on my tech blog for cheap. Instead of paying them for services done, I will pay them monthly, giving them more security, and getting myself more results for my money.

    A lot of major companies outsource call centers to the Philippines, I am guessing they can read and write English well also.

    These countries have good mastery in both oral and written English, I can’t say much about their level of English proficiency.

    Philippines is where I'd reccomend to start with. Many speak fluently and are happy to work for you. I had most of my success from http://onlinejobs.ph

    I checked their writing section and it's not up to par. Their writing is the kind of writing that you would submit in high school, while I am looking for something that is of college level. But thanks for sharing it. Got any more links like this but in other countries?

    Malaysian people can speak in English, but not fluent, its rare to find the good one. Most the local that can speak English majority are in Malingsh or Singlish accent.

    Filipinos suck at grammar and vocabulary and also tend to cheat. They are good for simple call center jobs. Your best bet would be to hire people from India for writing purpose, but always ask for samples.
