Dave was telling me the other day that his cousin will be posted to overseas for work for around two years, which is great experience for him. He has been working at this organisation for more than 5 years and he had always been eyeing an overseas posting.

Other snippets of this cousin; he is married, with two young kids. In fact, his wife had just delivered their second child a few months back.

Currently, their situation is such that they are living in an executive condominium, have a car and hire a domestic helper. He and his wife are both working. Very typical profile of a local Singaporean working couple with young kids.

In lieu of their situation, the cousin will be selling his car and also, it seems like they will be renting out their apartment, which makes a lot of sense.

His wife will also be quitting …
