How well can I live on SGD 2,100?

My housing, utilities and a local transport will be paid for by company.

Which leaves 2,100 SGD for food, going out, clothes, services, sports, regional travel etc...

Is this enough? I do not go out much, maybe 1-3 times a week.

How much is cable TVper month?

Hi Tali,

Cable TV ranges from $30 to $130 depending on number of channels. You may visit for more details.

For S$2,100 on normal expenses, its definitely enough for a local especially a single. A fresh grad in SIngapore earns $2,500 - $3000 before CPF and any expenses. So sohould be enough as long as not going for branded or high end restaurant very often.

Merry X'mas.

If I were to be in your shoes, with rental (the most expensive section in monthly expenses), PUB and transport taking care of, it should be enough, moreover you seldom hang out. Envy >_<
