Salaries in Singapore range for S$400 (cleaner) to S$160000 (Prime Minister, as of 2000) per month. I would suggest you aim somewhere inbetween. :roll:

Alternatively, you could maybe tell a little about a) your current salary, b) amount of work experience and b) what exactly it is that you do, and maybe some kind soul will offer a better guideline.
