Hermes bags, 3 carat diamond earrings and jade pendants the size of your EZ link card are just about what my eyes get to feast on at work nowadays.

Usually, the husbands are too busy running their multi-million dollar businesses so the wives end up making all the non-business related decisions on their behalf.

It’s interesting what the wives of these wealthy individuals have to deal with on a daily basis. Appointments with renowned dermatologists despite having glowing and literally flawless skin, hair salon appointments to ensure their hair is immaculately styled at all times of the day, lunches with their private bankers to talk about investments, PR, purchase of landed property etc.

I was just having a conversation with JW yesterday about whether these wives could possibly be happy.

Being the woman behind a successful and wealthy man is certainly no mean feat. You have to be more than just a trophy wife.

Not only do you have to continuously maintain and enhance your beauty to compete with the bevy of young and beautiful ladies who throw themselves at your husband, you need to be able to keep your husband intellectually engaged as that is what sets you apart from all the other sweet young things. Imagine how stressful it is having to deal with all these insecurities.

I think I’ll be much happier leading a simple life, having leisurely strolls with my loved one at some of the most scenic places locally and overseas, as well as coffee breaks at cafe joints tucked among greenery, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

That, to me, is a life fulfilled.
