Fann's good friend David Gan "not shocked" by will
by Charlene Chua

So will Wong accept Ms S's assets?

We may never know.

But we do know what the actress is hankering after - good friend David Gan's furniture.

According to the celebrity hairstylist, Wong has "choped" (Hokkien for reserved) all the designer furniture that he owns, some costing up to $35,000 a piece.

Gan, 51, told TNP: "I'm not shocked to hear of this lady wanting to leave everything to Fann, perhaps that's her showing her appreciation of Fann's acting all these years.

"If it were other people I would be surprised, but Fann is the most recognised star in Singapore."

He added as an afterthought that if Ms S truly wanted to bestow gifts on Wong, then she should "do it now" so that she can see Wong using them.

The hairstylist conceded that Wong wasn't likely to accept the generous offer as she's "so rich herself already".

Said Gan: "Fann asked if I would leave her all my furniture (from brands such as Bottega Veneta and Roberto Cavalli) after I go, because she loves designer furniture like me.

"I agreed and will write it in my will when I make one.

"I will also include Zoe Tay, who has asked for my watches (like Corum and Audemars Piguet), which are about $100,000 a piece, and Patricia Mok, who wants my Louis Vuitton trunk cases (costing up to $6,700 a piece)."

Mok, 40, who was Wong's jie mei (bridal assistant) at her wedding and planned her hen's night and wedding gate-crash games, agreed that Wong would never keep Ms S's assets for herself.

She explained that her "kind and generous friend" would likely donate it to charity.

"I can tell you that if Fann does accept it, she will use the money to set up a foundation to help children in Singapore.

"She especially has a soft spot for those kids who can't afford an education.

"What will I do if one of my fans writes a similar will? I don't have to think about such things, I'm not Fann Wong, leh."

readers' comments
In Malaysia, we have Botak Chin - most notorious gangster. In S'pore we have Botak Jones - half past six western food and Botak Gan - Ah Lian Hairdresser aka Son of the Gan. Remember this Ah Lian Hairdresser once dressed up Ah Lian Fann for her concert many years ago. Like chinese wayang, can vomit. If our local writers want to write something, please don't use celebrity chef, hairstylist etc if they are not up to par.

David Gan is famous because he is associated with Fann Wong, whom the latter have a whole misguided fan base whom still thinks she is International Star calibre ...

The whole circus should be funny to anyone reading deeply into this.

He is in the news because newspaper just want to fill up one of their columns.

This gun is a privileged gay who can hide under tay's skirt without being hantam by her hubby. Just like doctor can press the char bor nehx2 without being slapped or charged.

This botak is just boasting around. Even Bill Gates wouldn't go round boasting how much his furniture and watches cost.

U know why he has no hair ? Its because before he actually become a barber,no body dared to be his guinea pig, so he practised cutting hair on his own hair, that's why he is now botak :D:p:D:p:D:p
