How much do your specialist classmates earn on average? Are there certain specializations that pay more than others?
I work about 35 hrs a week and am paid by the hr from 80 per hr to occ. 120 per hr so if I work more, will earn more.

I believe surgeons earn around 20k or more a month and eye specialists and surgeons generally earn more.

Gynaecologists make the most $$$. Probably what you make in a year, they can make in a month.

I observed the human volume in some very small yet popular women clinic @ NE and North shopping malls. On average charge ~$200-300 per visit for a <15 min consultation. Imagine at least 30 pregnant women per day = 30 x $200 = $6K per day or $6k x 30 = $180K! Even after offset the salaries of 2 x nurses (~$8K) and rental (~$20K), still have over $150K per month.

Furthermore, it's going to be another baby boom for the year of horse.

We are a "not so high income" couple in our early 50s, earning in total only $153k pa. We still manage to live in an OCR condo, bought at $900k, after selling our paid up HDB flat for $700k. We have about $150k of mortgage left on the condo. Drives a small car. Our policy of property asset enhancement is successful as it allowed low income people like us to afford a condo because we can sell our HDB flat at a good price. Without selling our flat, we could not afford the condo, given our low pay.

Sold our landed house and downgraded to a penthouse. After the downgrade, no more housing loan, used excess cash as capital to manage my own stocks portfolio, full time. Active management of portfolio, generating income from both dividends and trading gains. Earning $80k pa, working from home. Wife working, earning $100k. Household expenses $90k pa. Hope to retire in 15 years time when I reach 55.

Not really, I need to stay glued to the computer screen to look out for trading opportunities in global stock markets. However, I'm 10 times happier doing this than to work for someone else, always at the beck and call of bosses, working in an environment full of office politics, back stabbing, etc. Also able to see my children more often. When I retire, my portfolio should be big enough to generate $120k pa of passive income through purely dividends. Then I can relax at the condo pool and workout at the condo gym every single day. The companies I own will work for me.

Husband and wife, 48 & 40, combined income $225k pa.
Condo worth $1.5m, mortgage outstanding $500k.
CPF and cash, $400k. No other assets.

Our retirement plan:

Option 1: Downgrade to a 3 room HDB flat. Live on cash and CPF Life monthly payout.

Option 2: Live with kids and rent out condo.

Option 3: Sell condo, get cash and convert to RM. Retire in KL. Assuming my condo will be worth $2m and paid up in 12 years time when I retire, plus my other cash savings, I could have $2.5m cash. If exchange rate is S$1 = RM3 in the future, I will have RM7.5m. I will be a multi millionaire.

Option 4: Similar to Option 3 but retire in Thailand. I will be a mega multi millionaire. Can employ 2 maids, 2 gardeners and a driver.
