    actually, finding a spouse is no different from getting a system - you need money, commitment and passion to keep it going for the long run.

    strangly enough,
    it's always my female colleagues and female friends who dont vie to foot the bill.

    err, no comment on that part though :P maybe they are not as well of as you are, maybe they don't hv big ego like the guys....many reasons to that
    but seriously, unless there is something wrong, a guy would still feel somewhat uneasy to let his lady friend foots the bills all the time. a more amicable arrangement will be to take turns to pay....but not in a deliberate way so as not to keep track if it is a fair arrangement

    I have been given occasional treats by ladies... Maybe its because its on biz grounds.

    I find it perfectly normal if a lady pays when I do not play host. I have a japanese dinner treat this thursday by a pretty and fine lady. emmmm..... maybe i should pick the tab this round. But i may cancel the appt as i am not sure of her agenda. I guess I am afraid to meet women for 1to1 meal whom I dont really know.

    But wait, what is all these crap about nice cars and who pays for dinner? When love shadows, it aint matter no more. Its about delivering messages through the eyes and the bill is just a wave of gesture to bring on a smile of the opposite sex.

    Oh and btw, i love Chery QQ. Its the most eco friendly car on the road with the least metal used to build. Love Nature, love QQ.

    Wonders how you lot would handle a seriously well off woman. One earning say 1.9 million SGD a year or more?

    The number of vehicles a woman drives means nothing to me, 4 vehicles? Well done Jeanie, but how much debt do you carry to pay for them and for your lifestyle which I might add sounds very neuvo-riche to me.

    Back now to the original question, is 35K enough. The answer depends on what your own expectations are in life, your education, the country you live in and your ambitions, drive and so on. Down here in Australia 35K is a fairly hefty chunk of cash in the bank, as most people are up to their eyes in debt with average house prices running in to half a million AUD (add 30% to convert to SGD) and a far more expensive country to live in overall. Most guys in Australia at 35 are married, a couple of kids with total debts of around 600K SGD as there's no HDB here to provide cheap housing for the masses.

    A GTR isn't that expensive. It's 25% cheaper than the 4WD I'm considering as my next vehicle. ( I have 3 cars and 1 motorcycle)

    Success comes in many forms, economic success is probably the easiest to define and once a house is owned and paid for the least important. There's no point in having a well to do wife or husband if the spouse never sees them as they are always at the office, or out with clients etc.

    I think she is referring to SGD.

    It depends, I have a colleague who earns $3000 and save $2700 and another who has $10,000 and still ...'money not enough'

    Ian: u referring to car in sgp or aust? In aust I can easily pay for the gtr without thinking too much abt it but here I need to think carefully for sgp??I have heard in aust most ppl are living in debt so if having 30k in bank will be a luxury to most.30k is really peanuts in Singapore if you are young with no backup and strt a family in sgp now. Just insurance will kill off this Amt.

    Yappy: your friend earn 3k save 2.7k? Haha. No need give parents, no insurance to pay? Come on this friend either is born in a rich family or super cash rich. 300 to survive monthly is impossible.yes some ppl earn more and spend all. I live by a percentage kind of management. Right Now my expenses is alr 3-4 times of what I used to earn. Is amazing how expenses went up...I also don't understand. Maybe now more family commitment.

    You're not the only one here who feels that way.
