You'll be very lucky if you can even land a permanent software engineering job in Singapore these days, let alone one that pays you well.

First Singapore is not an IT place, and second hardly a place for Core C++/assembly/device drivers guys(like me :( )
For the typical IT consulting java/J2EE kindof jobs, you can try, but then in general the software industry here doesn't pay much.

for 4 yrs exp 5K is just about enough to meet ends meet, i mean comfortably, if you are single, if you have a wife/family, forget it.
