Regulars on the forum usually recommend Sgd$100 a day per person, but I find I spend quite a lot less than that. Really depends on where you choose to shop, whether you choose more expensive restaurants and cafes, or eat cheap local food in Hawker centres and Foodcourts, and if you choose taxis or the cheaper MRT underground train and buses.

I don't drink so can't comment on alcohol prices.

Sgd$100 a day per person= sightseeing+ meals+local transport+ some souvenir shopping. The cost of your meals depend on how posh you prefer to dine, of course. The sum approximation excludes accommodation, airfare and visa fee.

Well we obviously ate at all the wrong places !

Breakfast for two at western style cafe inc. Cappuccinos was over $40 dinner at hawker style with a beer each was cheap at $35 but chilli crab and cereal prawns and plain rice, a few little buns with no drinks at Jumbo Shrimp was $116. I won't even mention what the hotel breakfast cost.

Lunch/dinner in a local food court: S$ 5 ~ S$ 7 (add 2 ~ 3 dollars for food courts at tourist attractions like Sentosa).

Indian buffet lunch/dinner: S$ 15 ~ 30 (higher end restaurants will be priced even higher)

Combo meal (burger-fries-drink) in a fast food restaurant (eg. McDonalds): S$ 5 ~ 7

Coke: S$ 1 ~ 2 per can in a shop; S$ 2 ~ 3 at tourist attractions

Local Beer: S$ 3 ~ 4 per can in a shop; S$ 4 ~ 5 in a food court; S$ 6 & above in a restaurant.

Taxi: Check this site for an idea of the fares and surcharges. Typically, its S$20 to 30 from Changi airport to city area depending on the exact location. Fares may be a bit disproportionate with the distance if you travel during peak hours in the CBD. (various surcharges may come out to be nearly same as the fare for short distance)
