I have 4 years of experience into Embedded sytems.
I require assistance in evaluating a job offer from Singapore, offering a salary of S$ 60k/annum.
We are a family of 3: Me, my wife and an infant. At present, I earn about INR 75k/mnth in India. My wife is a nutritionist, however has been out of work due to the baby, and I dont see her working in Singapore too.
We want to target a saving of about S$ 2k/ month with a modest living in a 2 Room full furnished apptt.
Please advice, based on your experiences if this is a good salary package, considering the sort of savings that we want to target?
Thanks and Regards
in Sg, in the last 6 months, rentals have gone up. even a decent 2 bed flat with furniture can set u back SGD 1000 minimum.
u have not mentioned which area u will be working in.
if it is city area, then housing nearby is expensive and u will have to stay in suburbs.
in such a case :
transport- SGD 150 per month ( if u stay near office and use bus/MRT-then transport can be SGD 80-100). u can add another SGD 75 for family on weekends. if u take a cab, then it can be more.
electricty/water/gas- SGD 80-100 per month
groceries and other expenses- Since there ar 3 of u, (if u are non veg or veg), - SGD 175-200 per month.
cable/phone/mobile- SGD 150 per month (max).
I dont know further about ur lifestyle etc, but weekend outings for 2 can put u back by about sgd 25 per person. (again depends on ur tastes).
