You are doing very good.
You are easily above 100k PA with 2 years of working experience.
3 job change in less than 2 years.

Your starting pay is very high. Is it private sector?
I only know public/civil sector paying that amount to second lower hons.
I am also from NTU mechanical. I don't see myself getting that amount when i reach 32 years old.
