Gurmit driving a Lambo - signs of a midlife crisis?

I've always wondered why people choose to drive a Lambo in sg. You can't drive the car to its full potential here with all the speed limits, traffic and traffic lights.

Any Lambo owners here?

Wow, I did not know that by being a mediacorp artiste, he can earn so much to be able to part with that kind of money.
Good for him. I don't think it is mid life crisis.
I think if he were younger and can afford it earlier, he might have bought it then?
I wonder what kind of house he stays in?

My neighbour also owns a lambo.
I don't know why he is willing to spend so much on it when he is staying in a humble 99 year lease condo. Maybe declare as company car?

If I had a 10000 sq feet bungalow which is fully paid up and, lots of spare cash, then I may consider a lambo.

there is a white lambo in my tiny condo too. my kids and i love to check it out. luckily its designated car park lot is not next to mine.

used to see the orange ones on the road which is a really ugly colour (to me) but this is a white one and gosh, the body shape is really nice.

most mediacorp (besides zoe tay and fann wong) are filty rich from endorsements etc. most recent one to throw about 900k into the making of films is michelle chong.

i believe she sold her house, stocks + cash savings and some sponsors = 900k.

but mediacorp pp are a rich bunch. ivy lee's husband once said that his wife earned more than him (his take home is about 20-40k monthly).

Hahaha many men are like that.

We think if we have something other men do not have, then we are superior. So fast cars, watches made for jet fighters or submariners, running shoes worn by Olympians etc etc.

Not all MediacCorp artistes earn big bucks. The big bucks come from endorsements etc. Basic salary with MediaCorp not that high.
