If a single lady is earning and spending 3000 a month and no savings leftover... I would wish her luck.

Personally, I'm not sure how much fun owning a car is, especially when you could be spending all that money on going out more and worrying less about finances. In SG as a single, there is no reason for owning a car.

I think you should be able to get by with less than 2k and still have a really fun lifestyle, especially if you can share a condo with a friend coz you will have lots of facilities.

This is especially so if you like to drink alcohol. You can become an Honourary Singaporean Female by only going out on Ladies Nights and drinking free till you spew or fall unconscious on the sidewalks or in the loo. You can also make it to stomp's website or utube as well! Be careful of blodging local blokes as they like to drink your drinks cause they are cheap as well! :wink:
