    Singapore, the island city-state of over 5.4 million people, 19 of whom are billionaires, is by no means too small to have their very own set of Rich Kids of Instagram.

    Meet the Rich Kids of Singapore, who cruise around their city in their supercars and intense designer fashion. Their posts even come with short little bios of each rich kid they feature.

    Wouldn’t choosing what to wear and drive be a problem you’d like to have?

    Mae Tan is the 20-year-old daughter of a wealthy Singaporean businessman.

    Tan is also described as the goddaughter of the legendary actor Jackie Chan.

    Kim Lim is 23-year-old daughter of Singaporean self-made billionaire Peter Lim, who amassed his total net worth of roughly $2.2 billion as an investor and stockbroker.

    We already know that being the daughter of a billionaire in Asia certainly has its perks.

    Rich kid and bathroom selfie-taker Dhillon Lee is described as the 18-year-old son of a Singaporean multi-millionaire.

    Jamie Chua, a woman famous for being the 20-year-old Singapore Airlines stewardess who married and divorced Indonesian tycoon Nurdian Cuaca, is also featured on RKOS despite being a Indonesian-Chinese mother of two in her 40s.

    When Chua divorced her millionaire husband in 2011, she famously asked for $330,000 a month in alimony so that she could maintain the luxurious lifestyle she had grown so accustomed to. The couple eventually split by settling out of court.

    Singaporean heiress Arissa Cheo also joins the RKOS, despite being 33 years old.

    Cheo is described as a  “Singaporean socialite turned online entrepreneur” as well as the wife of Taiwanese American actor and singer Vanness Wu.

    Perhaps the most ridiculous character among the Rich Kids of Singapore is Kane Lim, a self-proclaimed 25-year-old son of a wealthy family that owns a billion-dollar business.

    In his posts on RKOS, of which there are many, he reportedly started his own business at 17, made his first million at the age of 20, and claims to have a designer shoe collection worth over $365,000.

    Lim also allegedly attended a university in California where he majored in fashion, hence his fierce style and outrageous poses.

    Here he boasts his black American Express card, custom imprinted HermÚs wallet and Franck Muller watch, which can easily cost in the tens of thousands of dollars. 

    Because sometimes when you’re a rich kid, you just have to.
