Move to Singapore?

    Hi everyone,

    I am expecting to see whether I get offered a position in a really good school n Singapore and because if I do receive the offer I will have to respond almost immediately, I am contemplating whether to move to Singapore. I have been in KL for the last 3 years and have been to Singapore multiple times, so I like the city. My issue is whether S$8.500 (gross, which works out just under 8000 nett after 183 days when you become resident-according to gov website at least) is enough to enjoy not a luxurious, but a comfortable expat single life. The school told me that most teachers who live around there, which is not in the centre, pay between 2000-2500 for a one bed flat. I'd appreciate your help in the issue, especially from colleagues who live there. Happy Chinese New Year!
