agree! Actually eating out at overseas is not that expensive. for example, you can spend your lunch/dinner at 7-10 aussie dollar in australia. 6-10 english pounds in london. since SGD currency is big, u don't really spend much on eating. of course, u might like to ance a while pamper urself with gucci or coach handbag...being a cabin crew can really earn lot.
quote="Abercrombie"]I have known crew who save $30000 a year and $1000 a year, so very much is up to you and what kind of lifestyle you want. Set yourself a target on how much to save a month then don't go over budget. Branded stuff are up to you, if you have spare $$ then buy loh, food cannot stingy too much as it will affect your health. I would say that if you can save $20000 a year working on ground and don't enjoy traveling as you want to have more time in SIN then you don't need this job. It will be better to built a career and not flying. After all this job is for people who like to enjoy themselves while oversea to eat, shop, sight seeing, earn $$ so can spend more $$ type. There are also crew who are alway alone oversea as they don't go out of the room, they are the one who can save $30000-$40000 a year. If you are those boring type and can tahan loneliness then its ok.
You can live on S$10-20 a day on food anywhere in this world, so do your own calculation on the expenses as only you yoursely know what kind of lifestyle you want. Hope that helps.[/quote]
