Happy New Year 2017 !!

I have been offered a role of service delivery manager in Singapore through a recruiting agency. They are offering around $5500/month.

I had a couple of questions:

- Is $5500 enough for a comfortable lifestyle : When I say comfortable I mean a good 1/2 BHK for rent, occasional dinners,pubs,bars (maybe 2-3 in a month). I do not plan to own a car. I am comfortable cooking at home. Groceries, utilities, internet?
- I have heard it is not worth to ship your furniture, A/V equipment as shipping charges are a lot. Considering I save some every month can buy the same from Singapore.
- They are offering $1000 as medical expenses
- The contract is for 12 months which will be extended or a permanent role will be offered based on my performance.
- Will be alone initially but if things move in the right direction my better half will join. She is qualified and has some friends in Singapore who will help her with the job,

How much can I save per month aside from rent, utilities, food?

Your help will be highly appreciated.
Hello cousin,

Welcome to the forum.

I really wish you took some time and read up past post regarding "how much is enough" and "how much I can save... "

Thanks Brother.

I did try searching and I did get some posts but nothing was clear or maybe I was not able to understand as the needs were quite different. Would request you if you can post the links to those discussions?

On another note how much time does EP take?

Thanks again for your help.

O... k ...

EP (another subject discussed so often ... ) takes 3 days to 3 months ...

Don't tell me you can't find so many long running topics on EP processing delays ;)

ps. How different are your needs vs those discussed already, re: cost of living and where to live ? ;) if you did your homework, more than few answers will he forthcoming ...

And your entitlement mentality has made it to the local chat forums who have serious grouse against highly paid expats Image welcome to Singapore ;)
