Sorry for late reply, I’m always flying around.
My last drawn pay was roughly 8,500 SGD per month prior to my resignation. I am humbled by the interest, and I note some of the comments too. I think many people are more focused on how I defined my seniority in terms of rank, and how my lifestyle was like, and totally missed the whole point of the story.
Right now, my monthly pay is a lot less than what I used to take: I make around SGD 4,500 –> mediocre by Singapore standards, but here in Cambodia, very, very luxurious. And it’s a misconception that there is nothing to spend on, because Phnom Penh is actually booming. We live in a 2 bedroom unit at one of the newer condo units here, and in reality, it’s comparable to the ones you find at Novena area because it’s high expat population.
In short, my pay may be a lot less, but I’m living the standards of what an expat in Singapore would be enjoying.
Yes, I would be more than happy to answer a questionnaire. As for catching up, not likely anytime soon, because I don’t plan to go back for a while until my job has stabilised.
