For a guy I think you're doing alright! Probably get ready to jump soon as you're near the 3 year mark.

Iím the original poster for post #113.
Still feel like Iím not earning enough and thereís no pay increment for everyone in my company this year due to the economic downturn. Else I would have been earning 4.8k now.
Canít really find much jobs outside either due to the bad outlook. Anyone any tips on growing wealth?

At your level of income, best way is to go BTO. Everything else is too risky.

Out of curiousity, why are you giving your parents 1k / month? Does it cover utility bills / groceries etc? Seems like a lot since you are only earning 5k
