That's a fair living wage in most of the US if you don't have loads of debt to deal with, so I can only imagine that in Singapore it's probably a comfortable wage.

Although this is definitely the wrong forum to discus this:
Firstly, are you talking about USDollar or SGDollar??
In Singapore (if in SGD), if you don't own a property already, this would be a quite tight budget for a single professional and in my opinion not really enough for a couple. If you want to rent a house on your own (not sharing) you will currently have to spent min. 1700 dollars/m w/o electricity. Insurances, daily living costs and so on will easily eat up the rest. There won't be much to save.
The cost of living in Singapore is one of the highest in the world.
