Content creator Simon Khung (better known as Simonboy) is a former drug addict who has turned his life around.
And his girlfriend, Chloe Eong, has played a large part in his success.
She supported him before his social media career took off, and even lent him money to start his clothing brand, Chance.
Now that the 36-year-old has done well for himself — Khung also set up marketing and creator agency Peace Street Productions — he is eager to show his gratitude towards Eong.
He penned a tribute to her on his Instagram account on Nov 20 and gave her a diamond Rolex watch to thank her for standing by him through thick and thin.
“When I had only $50, you were with me,” he started his post.
He tagged Eong (aka simongirl) in the post, which had pictures of her wearing the luxury timepiece and the couple posing together outside the watch shop, Royal Crown Watches, at People’s Park Complex.
Khung said that half of what he has belongs to Eong.
“I made a promise to you before. When I had nothing and you were there supporting me. When I have something, you will own half of it.”
He also promised that they would reap the rewards of their hard work together.
In the comments, Khung’s friends and followers showed their support for the couple. Mediacorp actor Ben Yeo even called their story a “fairy tale”.
Another friend, comedian Mayiduo, had something more playful to say: “Bro remember we met at s11 coffee shop when you only had $46?”
