Re: Is this Budget realistic for 2 persons?

Thanks again for your replies! Are you sure you want to use a car? Just using taxis all the time will be much cheaper. 1500 sgd/month for car rental only is on the lower side. It can be closer to 2000. No, I'm not sure. But I read that the dog won't be able to take public transportation, so we must...

Re: Is this Budget realistic for 2 persons?

Thanks all for your input, I find your overseas holiday estimate unrealistic- a round trip for 2 to France will set you back way more than $450. It is a monthly budget, so it you count $450/month, it ends up at $5400, which will be enough to come back to France, even during during Christmas time! I...

Re: Is this salary enough for a family of 3?

Yes but your expenditure doesn’t include money you’ve put away as savings does it? $10K a month will give you a relatively comfortable life but you’ll be left with nothing at the end of the day. OK let's rephrase this. I came to Singapore with my wife and a $10k income was what I calculated to requ...

Re: Is this Budget realistic for 2 persons?

Finding a house with a sizable garden will be a challenge at your budget, even though it is already on the high side. I find your overseas holiday estimate unrealistic- a round trip for 2 to France will set you back way more than $450. A google search shows that a round trip per person costs anywher...

Re: PR approval chance in 2020

Hi guys, I am Vietnamese. I have read many comments and realized that I have very low chances to get PR because of my nationality. However, in terms of my ethnicity, my great-grandpa and my great-grandma were Chinese. Will it boost my application? Is it a stretch to you guys? Mentioning your great-...

Re: How to lose weight?

Roughly 50kg in half a year. I had ups and downs but maintaining my weight now at around 85kg. I would not call it stable unfortunately. Singapore has too much good food to offer. That is so impressive, half a year?! I try not to weigh myself too often, and rather just go by how I look, feel, and d...

Re: How to lose weight?

The book I shared is written by an MD, Jason Fung. Read the reviews. He is a kidney specialist and has written books like "Diabetes Code" and "Cancer Code". He runs a clinic which uses Fasting as way to cure Chronic Diseases. The least u can do is get the kindle version and see how to lose weight. ...

Re: Poor condo etiquette

Actually you are correct observer. Except in my block which fronts park/basketball court that is extremely popular not just with the HDB residents both the young folks from across the road living in Landed properties as well. Usually they didn't use the lifts but used the stairwell landings. We end...

Re: Poor condo etiquette

Because unlike condos, hdbs doesn’t have any toilets at the ground floor. And the fine for urinating in public goes up to $1000. So the poor sod who’s about to burst his bladder decided to do it within the confines of the 4 lift walls. Typically older men have bladder control problems. So, if I hav...

Pretty sure that is a spam or scam link, I dare not click it but I do know there is no need to “double confirm” your vaccine.

Re: Poor condo etiquette

The peeing in the lifts was endemic to HDB lifts. It's the reason for the ultimate installation of CCTV cameras in the lifts, not crime or molestation. I remember when they finally installed them in my estate (older estate built in 88~89). Yes, I remember reading about such incidents back in the da...

Re: Is this salary enough for a family of 3?

$9.58K/month, IMHO budgeting $4K for rent is.. excessive. I think $2.5K is more prudent. This pay level will be OK but not great provided you don't send your child to infant/child care. Child care at "PAP Kindergarten" (PCF Sparkletots) - and yes, some of them do accept children of EP holders - wou...
