Expected salary, family of 4 to live comfortably

Postby flickday » Thu, 22 Jun 2017 7:12 pm

Hi,

We may be relocating to Singapore by the end of the year. What is a expectable salary for a family of 4 to live comfortably - We would have 1 school age child that would go to the International School, another child who is 4 - but may send to a Pre school to save on school fees. We would want to live in River Valley area, paying around $4k a month - husband will commute to the city for work. We would want to enjoy life, using taxis, exploring on weekends etc eating out now and again.
We were thinking $200k at the lowest??
Any advice would be amazing!!!

Thanks :)

50k for house rental
6k for transport
3k for telco
30k for weekend entertainment
30k for normal food
