MAN WON $250K IN TOTO & QUITS JOB TO “HAVE FUN”, 6 MTHS LATER BROKE & JOBLESS

However, he soon spent it all and ended up back to square one, broke and now continues to be without a job.

Here is what he said

“My friend struck TOTO more than half a year ago, winning $250k from the Group 2 prize.

He gave all of us about $5k, then went ahead to quit his job, saying that he wanted to go travelling and enjoy his life.

We told him that it was a bad idea and that it wouldn’t last, we kept trying to tell him that he shouldn’t quit his job because he won $250k, not $2.5 million.

He told us that we were just jealous of him and said he knew what he was doing. He quit his job as a HR manager.

We saw on his Instagram in the months that followed, photos of him with different women in different countries, partying, drinking, gambling and going to expensive restaurants.

He even went to the famous Salt Bae restaurant and got the head chef to feed him a tomahawk steak with gold foil on it.

Anyway fast forward to a few months ago, he returned to Singapore and started asking all of us out. But this time he didn’t treat us to anything and insisted we split the bill, which we had no issues with.

He then told us that he ran out of the money that he had won from TOTO and said that he has been looking for a job for more than a month.

He said that he was down to about $3k inside his bank account, and that he regrets quitting his job so soon, and wants our help to help him on his unsuccessful job search.

We said “told you already what, you see la? Now become like that…”

Anyway we tried to get him job opportunities in our respective companies, and are still waiting for our companies’ reply.”
