Yes, you will be able to get by in Singapore and, if you live reasonably frugally, take some savings back. Try this link for information on tax: http://www.iras.gov.sg/ESVPortal/iit/index.asp
Everyone is entitled to my opinion

I guess it's 3 times more than most of the unskilled locals with Children, so yes, i think you could save yourself some cash, if you live like the locals do, even easier with no children, and you and your wife can eat out every day and still save.

You will manage fine i would think, cook your meals at home, so there's money in the bank!
