From Rags to Riches!

I was browsing facebook updates yesterday when i came across a post of the "Luckiest Maid in Singapore". The news talks about a Filipina maid who inherited $4 million US from his late employer. Wow! How cool is that?

Here's the article taken from Calgary Herald and here's the link click click!

'Luckiest maid in Singapore inherits $4M from employer
Agence France-Presse July 22, 2010 2:02 AM

A devoted Filipina maid inherited more than $4 million US from her late employer after more than 20 years of service, a report said Wednesday.

"I am the luckiest maid in Singapore, with or without the money," the 47-year-old single woman told the Straits Times in an interview.

The maid refused to be named in public for fear of possible threats to her life in the impoverished Philippines, where wealthy people have been kidnapped for ransom and some killed by their abductors.

The windfall, including cash and a luxury apartment, came from the estate of her employer Quek Kai Miew, a doctor and philanthropist who died last year at 66.

We have several stories of people who were born from a poor family and became rich because of hardwork. Others just got sooo lucky by winning a lottery, and making them an instant millionaire overnight. These type of stories drive other people to work hard in order to achieve their dreams in life. However, some are becoming lazy expecting that luck will be poured on them too (thanks to lottery!?). Anyway, the story moved me so i decided to make a post of it...
