I am not in accounting field but some of my friends in the field are graduates from Australia . It seems very easy to get a job and not impossible to get into big 4.

I think getting a job is not a problem, it more of getting your work pass approval. From what I read, there seem to be a high rejection rate for whatever work pass application.

My estimation of living cost for single, frugal living
Room rental in HDB: around $600
Public transport: $300-500
Food: $500
Others: $300
