Some parents are rich. They don't need any money.

My wife and I give a combined $2.5k to both sides.

I give between 27%-30% of my monthly salary to my parents.

I earn around $3500(before cpf deduction), mean I give around $1000+/-$200.

If my parents need medical care I also sponsor them on top of the monthly $1000.
I also sponsor them the angbao $$ sometimes when they attend relatives wedding dinner.
I also sponsor them the whitegold $$ sometimes when they attend relatives funeral.

I also give them about 30% of my AWS(bonus) during CNY.

I pay my own university fee about $24000.
I pay for my own HP bill/transportation.
I pay for my own when getting a driving license.

Parent pay for utility bill for the whole household about $100/mth.
Parent pay for internet bill about $25/mth.

During my university days, parents only give me allowance total of about $2400 for the duration of 4 years course. If I need $ to buy lecture note/meals/other entertainment, I use my saving which I save up during NS.

This is as it should be. Your parents must have done something right to have such a good son. If your folks are not working or not earning much, the allowance from you will help them live a more dignified life. If they don't need your allowance, I am sure they will save it up and eventually the savings will go back to you.

Another good thing that will come out of your filial piety is that you are now getting a taste of running a household. What you are doing now will put you in a good position to run your own household when you have your own family. Then you will have to handle all the bills and living expenses of your family and allowances to your parents and parent-in laws.

Default 30%

Right from the 1st day of work till now, been more than 10 years. I never fail to give my parents allowance every month: exactly 30% of my take-home pay. No matter if they need the money or not, its one of a form of filial piety because of the huge sacrifices they made for their children.

Sadly, I am still partially supporting my children who are almost 30 yrs old even though I spent almost $1m on all their overseas education. Am setting up a trust fund to take care of them after I'm gone because they (especially one of them) are quite spendthrift and I'm afraid if they get all my money in a lump sum, they will squander it. When I think back, perhaps I should not have pampered them so much....

i don't earn much but i put aside between $300-$500 per month for my parents. I hope to give them more in the future.

Even if I'm "broke", i still give them some.

For some reason, if i don't give them any "allowance", i have this "guilty" feeling.
