Do you think 7k to 8k is comfortably reasonable to live and save in Singapore ? .. any figures regarding the renting range of residential apartments ?
if you have a special skillset and managerial experience, it should not be hard for you to command 10k/mth anytime.

having 7~8k/mth is a reasonable salary, especially for someone your age (early 30s). however, it does make a big difference whether you're single/married with kids/dual income. having a household income of 7~8k comparing to a single earning the same amt do make a diff.

there's a big price range for SG housing, depending on the location, size, # of rooms, public or private housing
