Crazy Rich Asians was certainly… crazy enough, considering how Nick Young’s family had enough riches to probably feed the entirety of Africa (I think).

But it seems that Nick Young might’ve finally met his match.

Or his matches, to be specific.

So if you’ve been keeping up with the news, you would know that Stanley Ho’s daughter, Sabrina Ho, had received a pretty lavish gift from her casino king dad in celebration of her engagement.

As it turns out, the groom’s family isn’t exactly shabby when it comes to financial wealth, and they’ve extravagantly presented their impending daughter-in-law with a reported NT2.4bil (S$100mil) worth of dowry.
