Bernard Siew works for a cosmetic dentistry chain and collects a pay check of at least $13,000.
An Australian working in Singapore, he revealed in the Sunday Times Me & My Money column that he tries to save “as much as half my income”.
The other half is for expenses that include rental, food and transport. He is paying $5,500 rent for his apartment in Holland Village.
Let’s assume conservatively that he spends only $1,000 on food and transport.
This works out to $6,500 for his expenses.
And this means his income is $13,000 a month.
In a separate news, the New Paper reports that a construction crane operator can fetch up to $10,000 a month including overtime pay.
So, do you want to be a dentist or a crane specialist? 🙂
