30yo in 2021. Minimum $5k

Ideally $7k.

Anything lower than $3.5k as a 30yo = Low SES and can't do shìt.

0 financial commitment, at the least $4k. eat better quality food. its for health reasons. cai png though cheap isnt exactly healthy with all the oil. exercise to keep fit.

remember, if you remain alone till old, dont expect anyone to look after you when you fall sick. thats when the savings come in useful.

if still remain healthy at say 60, then you can splurge. go hang flower, be sugar daddy etc.

I eat caifan and don't have much expenses. I'm willing to work hard so that I can splurge when I travel.

If live in 2 room HDB, Eat cai ping, no holiday, no car, no condo, no GF, no need take care parents.

If you want to have the basic things and at the same times be well insured against health crisis and also save up enough for retirement. (meaning can retire at 65)

I think you need at least $4-5k.
3-4k Can sustain but you might not be able to retire at 65 and you may also fall short on insurance or saving for retirement.

What considerations do you need to think about and what gap do you need to fill?
