Not too shabby. If your family is willing to tighten its belt (live in HDB, take public transport, eat hawker food etc) you can probably save as much as $4k per month.

well i dont want the family to tighten the belt toooo much...

would be okay living in a 2 bedroom condo... take public transport of course... once in a while use the cabbies, mostly on weekends.... and mostly eat at home... go out once a week probably....

i guess with this also should be able to save up around 2.5-3K p.m.??

Sounds reasonable. Note that getting your child in an International School or even kindergarten will cost you a pretty penny though.

I make S$6K/month being in the finance field. Without my wife working (and NO kids), we can barely safe 2K. Do the math: 2-bedroom Kondo, good location (trust me, u wanna live close to ur work when u get home around 730 to 800 pm) with all utilities, phone...etc. will cost u around 2K. Dont forget, even with low taxes, u make net after tax around 5400/month. After wine and dine, there is not much left...
