Just a small update for anyone concerned about their spouses finding a job on a DP.

My wife received multiple calls for initial screening but was turned down because of not being a citizen/PR. They did not want to hire someone on DP.

Luckily, we are able to pull some strings back home and my wife finally got a job at a start-up IT firm with a base of 9k per month with good revenue sharing bonuses.

As a lot of you said, it is indeed quite tough for DP holders to find employment here because of certain laws in place.

My bad. I meant that she found a job in an American Startup which recently started its operations in Singapore. The hiring VP of the startup is based in India and they wanted someone to drive the sales in SG. I hope that clears the confusion.

As for the person who has a problem with Indians, I'm not sure why the hate. We're harmless little IT loving folks.

My wife, who is also in the same field will be looking for a job in SG once we move there. I'm a little concerned about the salary offered because SG is considerably more expensive than India and we are not sure if we would be able to maintain the same sort of lifestyle that we currently enjoy. We tend to eat out a lot because none of us is particularly good at cooking. We have no other debts or loans at the moment and our main expenditure in India is rent, eating out, house helps, pet food and vet bills, shopping and entertainment (equivalent of 300-500 SGD per month in India), car fuel and weekend getaways.

Ofcourse, once my wife starts working, we know that we will be far more comfortable but our intention is to save her entire salary and invest it.

Will 8000SGD be sufficient to have a comfortable life for two (plus a pet)? We don't intend to buy a car and would be happy to use public transport. We also aren't very picky about eating at expensive places all the time. We do however, love our shopping and going out.

Your views are highly appreciated!

Don't BS here lah!! my father minister lah my grandfather warren buffet. lim pei 999 billion per month. ALL rubbish waste time
