Welcome to the Ranch
Don’t know. You have to make up your mind yourself, depending where you come from, how you like Singapore, whether you like testing, etc. Other people may know about the money.

Hi

I really dont know what I like (other than Money) .. but I have experience in both Development and Testing.
And Getting lot of recognition in testing so continuing with it.
But I dont want to fall in trouble by accepting some useless opportunity. (I lag in experience)

Since you used the phrase "useless opportunity", this implies that you are placing a value other than monetary. If you "really don't know what [you] like", how can you judge whether the opportunities is useless or not?

As Campbell mentioned, it depends on you -- you need to make the call (based on what you want) and that even includes whether it is "useless" or not.

Singapore is not at all a country to save money! It used to be, but not now a days. It became one of the expensive cities to live in. There are so many factors, how much you're earning? Are you planning to relocate with family? How much you get? Is your company provides accomodation? etc etc. Don't come to Singapore to 'earn a lot', I'm afraid your dreams may fade out.
