A woman in Singapore worked and saved up for a decade so that she could eventually buy her mother a Louis Vuitton bag as a surprise.
The woman, who shared what she did for her mother via TikTok, explained in the video caption that she was driven to start working and running her own home-based baking business while still schooling in polytechnic.
What video showed
In the opening caption of the video, the woman, wrote about what motivated her:
When I was in primary school window shopping with my mum, she pointed to me a bag that she really liked.
I told her we should go in to take a look. She said no because she didn’t look good enough to enter the store.
I didn’t understand why.
But I told myself I’ll never make my mum feel that way when I can be independent.
At the LV store
The next scene cut to the daughter surprising her mother at the Louis Vuitton Island Store at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
A staff walked to the mother to hand over a purchase.
The mother was then seen unboxing the surprise — that was perhaps too obvious to remain a surprise.
But the mother was still surprised, nonetheless.
And naturally, joy all around.
And the mandatory “V” for “Vuitton” pose.
The bag? It is a Pochette Métis, which retails for S$4,100.
