Priscilla Wong’s Father Became Overnight Billionaire

Maintaining a fairly private personal life, Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) rarely talks about her family. However, her father Wong Wing Wah (黃永華) became an overnight billionaire when his construction company was publicly listed last week. At the end of its initial listing day on the stock market, Wong Wing Wah’s net worth was estimated at $1.8 Billion HKD.

Priscilla revealed that her father went from selling fish illegally on the streets to becoming a mere construction worker before his success today. Despite becoming a billionaire’s daughter overnight, Priscilla firmly said her lifestyle will not change and she will continue to work equally as hard.

Returning to work with boyfriend Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Priscilla was chased by the media behind the set of their new series Two Steps from Heaven <幕後玩家>. Surrounded by curious reporters, Priscilla had nowhere to hide and kept begging the paparazzi to stop bombarding her with questions.

Feeling awkward about her new family wealth, Priscilla said, “I don’t really want to talk about family too much because I don’t want them to be affected. The most important thing is that the family is healthy and happy! I don’t want to talk about this too much! Please, everyone – I don’t really want to speak about my family.”

Although Priscilla did not want to answer any specific questions from the reporters, it was evident that she was proud of her father’s achievements over the years.

      @tiger6 Depends on what his company’s shares is trading at during that day. According to reports, he currently holds 468 million shares of his company. As of today (Apr 21), it was trading at $8.90HK per share. So today, he’s worth $4.165 billion. Man, crazy stock. It went from $0.26 to $9.00 in two days, so his wealth also jumped 300 times in those two days. I guess, it can also drop that much in the future, so who knows what his worth is tomorrow. Either way, the guy is a wealthy man.

    She is a sweet and down to earth gal. Hope Edwin treat her well. I remember she was doing a travelling programme with Tony, and she went shopping alone. But in the end did not buy anything cos she still felt expensive for branded goods, even though it was really cheaper than what u can buy in Hong Kong.
