Taiwanese singer Show Luo forked out over S$1 million for a holiday trip to Maldives with his mum and colleagues.
According to the Taiwanese media, Show treated his mother and 27 colleagues from his management company to a four-day vacation in the Maldives. The generous artiste took care of all the expenses which set him back about NT$5.13 million (approximately S$1.03 million). Show and his colleagues were mesmerised by the beautiful white sands and crystal-clear sea the moment they arrived in the Maldives.
The resort upgraded Show’s guest room to a 200-square-metre luxurious suite surrounded by the sea, which he shared with 6 other close friends. The suite allowed them to dive from the balcony into the sea, which made Show exclaim: “This is heaven on earth!” in amazement. The guest rooms arranged for the rest of the group were equally impressive – each with a large bedroom, balcony and private swimming pool. They also had a special bathtub with a transparent base that allowed guests to view the fishes in the sea right beneath them.
Show competed with his colleagues in a “diving competition” every day and even made a bet with one of his colleagues that if he could dive into the sea, Show would pay for the rental fee of the snorkeling equipment. Although the colleague was game, he lamented that he was “too unlucky” as he could not snorkel after his back was scratched by coral reefs while diving. Besides snorkeling, Show and his mother also went parachuting from 200 metres up.
Show also treated the entire group to a dinner at an expensive underwater restaurant which allows diners to view the sea creatures while dining. The dinner alone cost him NT$160,000 (approximately S$32,000). Show’s colleagues praised the artiste for his generosity and joked, “He should feel like dying when footing the bill!”
