Itís a place to cruise your way till retirement. Of cuz, it canít beat the glitz and glam of a front office chad working in BB but the job security and work life balance of the CS is unparalleled.
if you don't aspire to be a multimillionaire CS is good enough.

very comfortable life, can afford a car and a small landed property. already better than at least 70% of singaporeans

What scheme are you on? How old are you? Which field (eg
Social/defence/economic) does your agency belong to?

To me it all looks a little complicated. I know that in the ministries they pay well, but nobody will pay you well for nothing. Meaning that the level of responsibility is too high, at least for me. So I though of founding a small gym not far away from my home. These m-loyalty.com/sg/ guys offered me their apps for organizing loyalty cards, so I will perhaps have some regular customers. The only thing that worries me is that after coronavirus the gyms will no longer be as popular as before

This is for the past when a HDB flat cost $30k and a landed cost $150k. Back then many teachers and civil servants bought small landed houses, usually terraces. A young civil servant joining today would have done extremely well for himself if he managed to buy a condo. Most buy HDB flats I believe.

A sub-entry level car like a perodua bezza or mutsubishi attrage is probably possible too but not very comfortably.

Nope, disagree. I've witnessed cases where employees are fired or asked to leave due to performance. Although most of the times they voluntarily leave first before being forced to leave.
