Age 28 single.

Cash in Hand: ~16k
Liquid Assets: ~10k forex, ~7k shares
CPF Ordinary only: ~29k
Monthly gross salary: ~3.6k

No debts, no installment, no house, no car, no GF
good question.........although i did travel quite alot due to my backpacking at least once per quarter...(US, Europe, Australia, APAC, u named it, i've probably been to it)

another reason is maybe i paid quite abit for my insurance and to my mum as allowance per month (as much as 1/3 of my current salary)

p.s. Don't worry about your salary...I was earning the same as you when I was 28-ish..
