Default Enough for a family of 3?

Hi all,

I'm being offered 84k gross in singapore as a Business Analyst Consultant.

Could anyone tell me if this is enough to maintain a comfortable lifestyle and still be able to save a good amount of money?

I will be moving with my wife and my 6 months old daughter, my wife will not be working.

I'm not looking to live a luxurious lifestyle so in terms of housing I would look for a normal 2-3 bedroom appartment/flat

looking forward to your comments!

That's 7k per month. More than enough for a comfortable life in HDB. May even be able to afford a small family car. If you wanna save more, take public transport and eat at coffee shops (or ask wife to cook - even better).

You mean the company cannot find a Singaporean to do the job of a business analyst consultant?

Default I think they can

I think they can find someone but they just liked my profile and I'm not too far from Singapore.

Cheers!

Let me guess: your hiring manager is also from your country. Am I right?

Then he must be a foreigner, a PR at least. Definitely not a singapore citizen. Right now?
