Actually I think such things cannot compare...

Like say you get 100 dollars in one country doesn't mean the same as 100 dollars in another country since the standard of living is entirely different. nevertheless, I think 500 is still quite alot.

Say when I was in Singapore (my home country), I get 400 singapore dollars a month (1.5 sing dollars approx 1 US dollars) for food and stationery and transport.. It's more than sufficient seeing that a plate of chicken rice can cost only 2dollars and some fish and chips 4 dollars.. So I could save up some money and splurge regularly on other stuff.

But here I am in Australia, things are different and 400 singapore dollars would have been too insufficient here seeing that food cost like 3 times more expensive and transport is way higher. And I saved and scrimp and everything I can and the minimum amount that I spent on food and transport is still 350 Australian dollars (which is close to 500 singapore dollars).

So I think it is pointless to ask the allowance since it cannot be compared across countries...

I think it depends on your age/school..

Like for example, if you are in Secondary school or JC..I think that is freaking alot...

If you stay in hostel (say in Uni) and you pay for all your three meals, I think it is pretty reasonable..
