I was Iwan's guardian for 3 years when he was studying in Singapore. After his secondary education, he went to Australia to continue his studies. He returned to Singapore last year. His family who has businesses in property development and banking in Jakarta, has an apartment in Orchard Road.
Well, being young, wealthy and single, Iwan was having a wonderful time in Singapore. As a teenager, he was already changing girlfriends like the clothes on his back. So I'm not surprised he got himself into such trouble.
What he didn't expect was, as the Chinese saying goes 'Go up the mountain too often and you will meet a tiger'(上得山多终遇虎), he would meet a tough (li hai 厉害) family.
According to Iwan, he met the girl at a pub. She was a waitress there. Young and very beautiful. He brought her home one night and continued seeing each other after that. She moved in with him 2 weeks later and quitted her job. Any one who have filthy rich friends would know their lifestyles. Money is like tissue paper to them.
The girl who has lived in a 3-room HDB flat all her life was living the life of the rich and famous in a multi million-dollar apartment, had maids at her beck and call and was being driven around in a Mercedes. She got to dine and party at the hippest places in Singapore and Iwan bought her lots of branded stuff. She thought she would become the mistress of the house. All this while, Iwan was still his usual self, partying and chasing girls. In 5 months, everything was over.
She was asked to leave when she had a fight with Iwan on his philandering ways. Then her parents confronted Iwan and wanted him to marry her when they found out their daughter was pregnant. They gave him such a hard time, Iwan called his parents for help. His father would have nothing to do with it and so his Mom had to come settle for him.
Iwan's Mom called me for help and I wasn't told the details until after the meeting. Iwan isn't in love and is not ready to get married. His father will never agree to this marriage. The girl and her family were harbouring too much hope.
Threats were made by the girl's parents after Iwan refused to marry their daughter. The next day, the girl tried to slit her wrist in Iwan's presence. She's fine, it was not a deep cut. It's going to be a messy affair if the girl and her parents don't know when to stop.
Who is right? Who is wrong? It's not for us to judge. Such things are happening every where each day.
Yeah... it's time for the moral of the story :
Don't be greedy. Be contented with what you have.
If you were meant to be rich, you will be. Some people work hard but remain poor all their life. Some people has never ever worked a day of their life and they are filthy rich.
Always prepare your own condoms, never depend on the other party to do it. And check the expiry date of the condoms.
