A netizen shared how his family thinks he has made it, with a stable office job and etc; but his friend just bought a resale HDB and has a watch collection worth more than the house.
Here is the story
I have a long-time friend since sec school. Really smart and humble guy. Awesome dude all around, always treats our clique with meals whenever we go out.
We always knew he is earning more than us, but we just assumed it was slightly more.
He bought a resale HDB flat with his wife recently, nothing too extravagant, 4 room flat that just MOP. During the housewarming, as he was showing us around his study… that’s when we saw his watch collection.
4 watches that cost more than the entire house. We questioned him abt it and he just sidestepped our questions. He did let us admire and touch the watches though.
Damn………. thats when I realised how big the ability gap is. We started from the same sec school. My family all think I “made it”, local grad, office job, stable pay and all.
While my fren here is just keeping quiet doing his own thing. Made me realise how big the world is.
- There will always be a bigger fish . Stay humble and keep going
- At least he is humble and not the flaunty type!
