You can believe, or not, but IMO you should open your eyes/mind to what people are getting out there.

FYI, I'm in my early thirties, female local degree holder.
The ONLY way to settle all this is to post your payslip picture *minus ur name* for proof.

Much as I am envious, this kind of salary indeed is possible, and actually quite "common" ... alas. There seem to be a lot more companies out there willing and able to hire many of these specialized or senior positions, especially in high revenue industries like financial services, real estate, oil/gas.

In fact, for 160k to 200k, I would say, is only mid-senior level.

$10k for a local family is above average. The national median monthly family income is $5300. Young graduate couples in their 30's who are both working should be making about $8-$12k combined.

Obviously, comfortable or not depends on your lifestyle. As the previous poster commented, a $10k for a 20-year chemical engineer doesn't seem too high, but it is also not shabby by Singapore standards.

Renting a public 2 bedroom flat would cost you about $2000/mth at the low end. Private condominiums about $3000 (non-central locations). You should be asking for housing allowance.

Public transport is ard $2 per trip (including transfers). Taxis from $10-$20 per ride.

Cheap meals can be had for $3-$4. A MacDonalds meal costs about $8. Expect to pay from $12 and up (per person) at most restaurants.

Movie tickets are ard $10.

For expenditure on childcare or pre-school, the sky seems to be the limit.

I've given you the context, go figure.
