Any rough estimates to the variables in the equation would be much appreciated so that I can get a rough estimate of a salary.

Cheers.
Rent apartment/condo with 2bdroom: 2500-3500k/mo
Food: 500-1k/mo
Transportation: 100/mo
Cellphone misc: 50/mo

If you are not intended to have saving then your postdoc salary quite enough. But don't forget to pay your own income tax.

Unregistered Our combined income is now 420k+ and find it just nice for the usual family with 2 kids & car & condo & maid. Our plan is to maintain same living standard and hopefully any additional increase in income will go into savings/investment.

Unregistered Really depends on your yardstick of "comfort", doesn't it?

YES we are struggling, we both have our own 2nd hand jap cars , we need it to go to work. Lets not not about downgrade to 1 car, just not possible. Work is in a ulu place.

primary school kid, going with to few tuition sessions and enrichments, we would love to send him to more classes, but we are stretched.
Lets not forget we both have our own set of parents to give allowance to.
We have a maid to help look after toddler and cook and clean , nightly dinners with 1 set of parents in law, so a maid is absolutely necessary.
very few investments as we are worried one of us may get retrenched. No major euro holidays, just asia holidays, once or twice a year with only 1 child.

You must be joking. My spouse and I earn a total income of $130k pa and we feel comfortable. Our home is paid up using CPF and we can even afford to own a second hand car. But we don't splurge on employing a maid nor do we smoke nor drink.
