I am 29, renting with my boyf of 1 year. No car, so my expenses are about $1600/month but sometimes I can just lose a whole pay check by not being careful/mindful of saving/investing.

Pay increase for new role is about $1600/month in my pocket more.

What would you do with the extra $?

I was thinking of saving via my super (you can wdraw 50k in australia to buy a home) in 18month-2 yrs when housing market implodes.

$115K Salary + 15%super
$15k in shares
$4k in savings
$30k in superannuation

Whenever I'm in a salary negotiation discussion, the HR asks for my expected CTC.

I tell them a number and they are like - ohh.. that's way beyond our budget, I see that you got a hike a couple of months ago blah blah blah and tell me what they plan to offer - which generally is way below my expectation.

In the spur of the moment, I quickly reduce my expected CTC to be lesser than what I would happily accept. I regret doing that the very next minute. How can I negotiate better?
