I am being offered S$5000 per month. Am married and plan to rent out a HDB accommodation. According to you is 5k enough in Singapore with a bit of savings? I currently operate on a 40-60 ratio of savings to consumption in India. What is it like in Singapore?
Use the search function above for threads discussing cost of living. It has been discussed quite extensively in the forum. And it is subjective, depending on every individual so there's no one-size-fits-all answer.
Your 40-60 ratio mentioned still won't be able to help to gauge your would-be living cost here in Singapore. Very subjective to how you already live in India to begin with, and subsequently, how are you going to live in Singapore.
1. Determine where do you wanna stay first. Which area? Very important factor.
2. Determine whether you are open to food or still wanna stick to purely Indian food. Cook, dine out or takeaway?
3. Determine if you wanna have own car or take public transport. Another major factor.
4. Determine if you wanna have fun, go out and have regular form of entertainment.
Get these info and then check against the threads in search result. Then come back with detailed questions which you have unanswered.
In my personal perspective (See? Told you it is subjective), SGD5000 is good (for me)
