You better start saving, do some investments or do something to get that coveted promotion and salary increment my friend.

Because once you have a baby, you will be working your ass off. You will be working on weekends (if your company allows to do OT on weekends) just to make ends meet. That's what i"m observing right now.

I assume you just got married or getting married soon. I assume that because you mentioned "my HDB is coming in 3 years time". Most of my friends who just got married or getting married keep saying that their HDB is coming in 3-4 years time. Correct me if i'm wrong.
