Current trends? Be thankful you even got an offer! Hospitality Industry? Salary is fair go considering you don't know anything about the area yet. You need to get your foot in the door.

Maybe you want to go back and reread my post? I said you didn't have any experience in the area (area meaning Singapore). I didn't say you didn't have experience. :roll:

If you are leaving your spouse in India, then all you will need initially is to rent a room and not a whole unit. So for a temporary set up, yes it's do-able.
