cost of living in macau

Can anybody give me some idea roughtly how much is needed for a 4 pple family in macau excluding rent? There's a chance to get a job offer from macau but I don't really know about the place. Judging by my brief web surfing, I can see macau has been growing at an incredible rate for the last couple years. As far as this living cost goes, some people say it's relatively cheap but I came across an article macau is one of the most expensive cities in Asia?? what's the truth? Can expats not make a comfortable living in macau any more? It looks that way cause I was very shocked to know how expensive those high rise new apts are.. Please... help anyone?? clear my confusion away?? Much thanks in advance.

What is your wage? Where do you come from? What are you going to do at Macau?

I can only compare to US (where I am from) but Macau generally has lower costs in all areas except real estate, rent, electric, telephone and gas. Insurance, medical care, service labor are quite low. Food and dining out are about the same. Clothing is generally much less but sizes can be difficult to find. In Macau I send my child to a private school but in the US used the public school so this is an additional expense.
