JT,

That's the exact same salary and condition I got at SMC last year, with exactly the same teaching experience and qualifications.

Initial offer was lower but I negotiated up to 13,700

You can save if you stay reasonable in your expenditure. Living in ME gives people a warped sense of a pseudo jetset lifestyle. Do you really need the expense of a maid when where you came from you coped without one? Do you really need a more expensive car? Watch out for holidays where people tend to spend up trying to forget the oppressive regime they work for and the stifling culture live in. Don't ,ake the mistake of trying to compete with the locals with their ostentatious displays of wealth beyond anyhting you are used to. It is not a competition.
