每日英語跟讀 Ep.973: How does S’pore socialite Jamie Chua spend her money?
With more than 200 Hermes bags, it’s no exaggeration to say that Singapore’s socialite Jamie Chua (蔡欣穎) has more luxury goods in her wardrobe than a department store. The 45-year-old influencer has been sharing highlights of her luxurious life on social media platforms, including her mansion, clothes, food, boutiques, expensive cars and photos of her traveling around the world.
When she was a young Singapore Airlines flight attendant, she met an Indonesian tycoon, Nurdian Cuaca, in the business class and married him instantly. She was married to him for 15 years and gave birth to a son and a daughter, before she eventually divorced him in 2011 at the age of 36, citing “personality clashes.” The two did click right away after their encounter, and that’s when her lavish lifestyle began.
During their divorce lawsuit, Jamie sparked controversy by demanding that Cuaca pay her more than NT$6.24 million a month in alimony. Although she didn’t disclose the verdict, one thing’s for sure: since the divorce, she’s been living an even more luxurious life.
Jamie once said during an interview that every time she travels, she brings 2 assistants, whose jobs are to follow her 24-hour a day to take photos. They can go back to the hotel to rest until after her photos are deemed good enough to post on social media.
The successful influencer spends lots on her appearance too. She once told the media that she spends an average of NT$300,000 a month on hair, body care and weight loss treatments. The amount of money put into maintaining her looks is probably the secret to why she and her daughter Calista look like sisters instead of mother and daughter. She is now a famous Singaporean influencer with over 1.22 million followers.
