And who said I was a CEO?? I've accepted a 'director' role... the CEO is 2 levels above me in the company hierarchy.

I apologise for being offered a great package... I also apologise for gaining the experience I have over the years to be in a position to get this job.

Maybe I shouldn't accept the offer and instead apply to work in 7-eleven... then I'll be more worthy of my 125cc motor-scooter.

Or maybe I should take the package, give my thai bike to a beggar and waste my money in a Benz or BMW... who needs savings anyway.

Thanks for the advice guys... I really appreciate it. Jealousy is a terrible thing.
I haven't logged on for quite some time, so perhaps this response is irrelevant now but jeez....for the love of God..talk about jealousy and envy!! Why hate a guy for making a good salary people?! If he's on such a good package he's either:

1) Really smart, competant and probably earn his right to make that amount or;
2) Working for a stupid company who is overpaying him, in which case, chances are, the company will go bust for making stupid hiring/salary decisions and he'll be out of a job so it won't last long

This is an EXPAT forum, meaning you will find people here on great packages. Plus at a directly level probably working for a MNC, that's not THAT outrageous.

Just because 99.5% of the population isn't making what he is, doesn't mean you have to kill the guy for asking an ignorant question. And if he works in Japan, $205K SGD isn't that much money.

Ignore the first two replies. I don't think you sounded as if you were gloating at all. Many, many people talk packages on this forum and also the other popular expat forum and i've never seen such rudeness in the responses. It's true, there are people that earn a lot less than you are going to but there are tons that earn more than that in their total packages. Eric, hate to say it but it did sound like petty jealousy even if you just thought the guy was a wind up merchant. I for one think it's great that someone with your earnings is willing to ride a motorbike rather than one of the ridiculous Lexus 4 x 4's that populate the roads here. Bring it, your parking will be free and you'll never have to wait for a cab to get to work. As for your lifestyle. You will live more than comfortably and save money to boot.
