Priscilla Wong a Thrifty Spender Despite Father’s Wealth

From her high-profile move to TVB in 2012 to her relationship with Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) never seems to stay out of the headlines. When Priscilla’s father became an overnight billionaire when his construction company got publicly listed last year, the Two Steps from Heaven <幕後玩家> star shot to headlines again, earning the name “billionaire heiress”.

But Priscilla herself hasn’t been very loyal to her new nickname. Rather than moving to a much bigger estate, Priscilla and her family of seven chose to stay in their comfortable, yet humble house in Ma On Shan. The Wong family are also thrifty spenders, perhaps influenced by their low-income upbringing. Paparazzi once caught Priscilla purchasing a standard scarf for about only HK$80 in Tsim Sha Tsui, and noticed her tendency to wear the same sponsored jacket for at least two days in a row. Priscilla also shares clothes with her older sister and three younger sisters, all saving money on their wardrobe.

Priscilla is also a water saver, having admitted in the past that she doesn’t frequently wash her hair. The longest she’s had between washes was seven days. “It trains your hair to not be so greasy,” she said. She’s saving money on shampoo, too!

Even her boyfriend, Edwin, is getting affected by her thriftiness, and learning to become a saver. There’s a good future ahead for the both of them.

      The report seem to suggest that being thrifty is a bad thing. Of course she’d be thrifty, given her upbringing. It’s unlikely she would squander away her father’s wealth, which doesn’t necessarily mean it is her wealth too. She seem to be doing pretty good financially herself, based on the amount of work she’s getting so she certainly doesn’t need to rely on her father.

      She may not be the most talented actress around but I certainly respect her for being humble and down to earth.

      Omg!! Don’t wash her hair for a weeks? That’s gross I mean don’t she feel itchy or having dandruff on her head? Water don’t cost that much I’m sure she can afford it. If she’s that cheap then don’t buy any makeup stay natural and help saving the money too.

        @cutie777 I think the report is being misleading. I know a lot of people’s personal choice of only washing their hair once a week and their hair is so much better than mine even though I wash every other day. Their hair become less oily and look really clean. I even know one girl who only washes her hair once a month and it looks amazing. I can’t vouch for it though. I tried not washing my hair for 3 days and it itched so much I couldn’t go through with it.

        But I think if you wash your hair too much it strips away the natural oil and thus it keeps producing more oil and make your hair appears oily after only 1-2 days :/

          @iciel Wow. That’s even more gross don’t wash her hair for a month? Lol. I don’t think you want to go near her she might have lots dandruff around her head. I even know some people does washed their hair but they don’t comb or brush them so when their hair gets really long it curls and it hangs down like a snake. I’m like you have to washed my hair every other day too.

      Yeah … I respect her a lot but not washing your hair for a week is kind of gross especially since she’s not even broke. Probably just lazy…

    4. Nothing wrong with being thrifty just like there’s nothing wrong with being a big spender. As long as one live within once means. Let her be.
