A Filipino Maid Inherited Millions From Boss

I was about to close my browser when I caught a glimpse of the Australian Yahoo News: Devoted maid inherits millions from a boss.

A devoted Filipina maid has inherited six million Singapore dollars ($A4.53 million) from her late employer after more than 20 years of service, a report says.

"I am the luckiest maid in Singapore, with or without the money," the 47-year-old single woman -- identified only by the pseudonym "Christine" -- told the Straits Times in an interview on Wednesday.

The windfall, including cash and a luxury apartment near the Orchard Road shopping belt, came from the estate of her employer Quek Kai Miew, a medical doctor and philanthropist who died last year at 66. She was very close with her employer. How lucky for an employer to have a maid like her. Also, she was lucky and blessed. Serving 20 years as a maid is no joke. Good luck and God bless to her.
