Since young, many of us have been taught the importance of saving money. For some of us, this involves depositing loose change in our piggy banks whenever our wallets get a little heavy.

Having done that for the past 28 years, Singaporean online personality and actress Xenia Tan decided it was time to smash her piggy bank and reveal the ‘spoils’ within.

Xenia enlisted her family’s help in counting the sea of golden coins that flowed out and estimated the total to be about S$7,000.

In the clip, the 28-year-old revealed that her father had started saving money inside the piggy bank before she was born. She told MS News that the piggy bank was saved for her by her dad, so she didn’t contribute.

“We decided to open it now because we were scared the coins might be discoloured or tarnished as it has been saved for a long time,” she said.

Before smashing open the piggy bank, Xenia posed for a final picture with the ‘golden piglet’ with her fiancé and parents.

While the sum fell short of the S$16,000 Xenia’s father initially estimated, it’s still no easy feat to amass 7,000 pieces of S$1 coins.
