Question, is this a liveable wage?

My SA package netts me R28k with no company car or cell.
Current expenses:
Rent R6k (2 bed townhouse)
Car R5k
Cell R3k
Medical R2600
Indurance R2k
Groceries R4k
Utilities and satellite tv R2k

How do living costs in Dubai compare?

Thanks for any comments

Ken
Thanks for the response and apologies for not converting all to usd. So converting everything to usd I can assume that living expenses will be abt USD 5800...and usd6k will be a barely liveable wage?
