it's better than average, but I would need more depends on your skills, expectations etc.
for english teacher or taxi driver its probably great ;)
should even be enough to get an EP as well :)
Life's a bonus isn't it?

That also really depends on the job you are performing, your qualifications and the years of experience that you bring. Without knowing that it would be hard to judge whether an S$5k salary is decent or not.

to me it sounds lovely... but then I'm a stay at home mom so any income is lovely. :D

I think you'll have to take into consideration your expected lifestyle, where you're going to live, what kind of job conditions you want... the list goes on. Think hard.
