He spent most of his money on his terrace house.

Age: 32
Annual Income: 65k (inclu. AWS and bonus)
Cash: 12k
Investment (UT + stocks): 108k Cash; 59k CPF
Others (Endowment + Bank investment plan): 54k potentially in another 10yrs time
Property: HDB EA flat (worth ~480k now; 220k loan to HDB)
Car: still owe bank ~15k (to date, the scrap value is 10k)

Do you think I'm a loser? I have been working for almost 9yrs and due to last year's financial crisis, I was retrenched and switched job with 10% paycut.
Now, when I compare with my peers (same batch from uni), I'm earning less than them. But I'm not too sure on the comparison in terms of net worth...

Are the above numbers combined with spouse? If not, do you own 100% of the EA flat's net value?

The above numbers are my own, w/o spouse. Except for the EA whereby me and my spouse co-owned the unit. We share the loan equally as well.

The numbers are pretty decent, considering you are not a very high income earner. My net worth is about 650k. Combined with spouse, it will be 1.3m. We are 35-36 years old. Our combined income is about 220k.
