    30 with 150k in savings excluding other assets?

    fren, it's tough but not unattainable.

    most singaporeans guys after NS and Uni out working starting off, how much you reckon?
    3-4k?give parents, buy car, pao niuh, uni loan(if applicable), transport cost, meals,
    how to have 150k by 30?
    i dare say only 5-10% of singaporeans can attain that.
    on 2nd tots, even less than that.

    very true.
    i dumped my 18-200 for $400 recently and my sb800 for $300.
    i bought a d90 with kit lens and the kit lens i dumped for $100.

    i get where you coming from and the geist of your statements.

    however, note the meaning of dream in this 'dream car' context.

    dream car is a car which you can only DREAM OF owning.
    it's different from your targetted car, which you can save up to buy.

    so if his dream car is just a vios, then, i reckon he needs to aim higher in life.

    anyway, he's full of s lah.
    dream car vios?
    are we really buying that?

    is it due to the fact that we enter workforce earlier becos guys have to go through ns?

    i'm referring to comparison of having a fix salary job.
    I think if you at it on a fix salary basis, I would say yes in Singapore, woman do have the jump on men in the workforce, due to the fact they are in the work force earlier at least 4 - 5 years earlier and already working up the pay scale.

    personally i dont find it an issue be it who earning more or what? after all it's depend on individual. What is the definition of high and what is low?

    One will never feel high enough if one cant never be enough.
    It just about contentment.

    In my circle of friends, women earn more than the guys

    But womens's expenditures are much higher than guy's.

    office suits, bags (branded), makeup, hair, SHOES!!, holidays, spa, u name it.

    I think the extra years of working experiences is the main differentiators... The higher initial starting salary cannot compare with the extra years of working experience.... hence female from the same cohort will normally fare better than the males...

    Well said, but i guess achievers satisfy themselves with an internalised contentment in pursuing their high riding dreams.

    of course overobsession or too much of something is toxic, and comparison is unfair. but passive contentment in singapore sounds fatal to me..

    we all start with small dreams...and we can never get enough.

    first a vios, next a lexus, then a BMW, then a ferrari
    first a compact, next a prosumer, next entry dslr, next pro dslr, next lecia, etc etc.

    there are so much wants in life...can we ever be satisifed. the millionaire always thinks how he could become the billionaire. we need to be contented or we will never have egh.

    i drive a vios, will i upgrade it? ya probably to another vios or fuel efficient car. i dun need a nice car. just need 1 that dun break down and must be fuel efficient.

    i do dream of living in landed property then i can keep big dogs as pets. right now...hdb dont allow me to keep my favourite dogs.

    seriously most sg ppl are assest rich. my mum has a half a million dollar home(thanks to HDB). her liquid less than 50k. she works for 40 years with pay of 1k per month at most and sometimes unpaid(house-wife). i say she's rich. go china = 2.5million rmb!
