wow... they can save 300k a year.

300k is like the life savings of my retired father.

but then there are many levels of wealth. i remember at some point our president Nathan was making 300k PER MONTH!

Unregistered Guess if anyone needs a guideline, I think a 1.5m condo (eg small studio in good district or a bigger 3 roomer mass market condo) and a 200k car (eg 2nd hand BMW or Mercedes) is ok for a family with 2m net assets.

Expenses:110K per annum due to parental maintenance, shopping, holidays, eating out.

Small fries. Looking at this, our expenditure is too high considering we have no car! Love shopping, eating and holidays too much.

Family expenses - estimated $80k pa

As we are comparing housing type and car type wrt to income and net worth, it will be good if we include purchase & current prices of condo/hdb/landed and car make & model.
Kong, don't be disillusioned with your high pay. Both you and your wife can get retrenched any time as you both are now in your 40's. I used to earn $300k pa, but was retrenched. Luckily I stay in my HDB flat which was fully paid up and I have some cash to tie me ober for a few months. Now I am just a lowly paid tutor. Stay in your HDB flat and save as much as possible for the imminent retrenchment.

Many people tell us we live way below our means, but we're comfortable with our way of life.
