Kong Hee responds to ST report on his lavishing lifestyle in sentosa cove

Kong Hee
6 mins ·

I refer to the newspaper article “City Harvest Church founder Kong Hee puts Sentosa Cove home for sale for $10m” by Joyce Lim published in The Straits Times on 2 July 2015.
I was surprised by the contents of the article. Significant portions of the said article are misleading and exaggerated.
At the outset, I note that the “investor” quoted in the article is unnamed and anonymous.
The property that my family and I have been temporarily living in is co-owned with another family. We have been living at this property with the co-owner’s kind permission after we had to sell our properties in order to pay the legal expenses for the ongoing trial.
The article quotes the “investor” using superlative terms to describe my property, implying that its furnishings are grandiose and luxurious. I am unaware of the intentions and motives of the “investor”, but my family and I would respectfully disagree with the particular nuances in which the article and the “investor” mischievously seek to portray. I am puzzled why the furniture in the apartment is described as allegedly “lavish or opulent”, when it is not.
There is no denying that my family and I are blessed and privileged to be staying at the property. However, my family and I are under no illusion that this is only our temporary home, until the property is sold. The article has given the impression that this property was only just put up for sale. On the contrary, the co-owner and I have been trying to sell this property for some time.
I am particularly surprised by the reference in the article that the “investor” has “the impression that the owner sure knows how to enjoy the high life”. I do not intend to dignify this assertion by responding to this, suffice to say that those who know and are around me, my family and friends, know perfectly well what we have gone through over the past 5 years, and what we continue to go through today.
Lastly, I am shocked by the alleged offer made by the agent to take the “investor” out on the owner’s “yacht”. I do not, and have never owned a yacht. As far as I am aware, the co-owner, who does not live in Singapore, also does not own a yacht.

Peninsula Hong Kong - site inspection report

When I first saw the Peninsula Hong Kong in 2007, I described it as “the classic old grand hotel on Kowloon;” my original Hong Kong site inspections are here. What a difference seven years and a renovation (completed in 2013) can make. The hotel felt old in 2007. It feels fresh and elegant in 2014. In my first site inspection, I did not even write about the lead-in rooms, and I have discouraged clients from booking them. Located in the original, 1928 building, the lead-in room categories (Supe...

Pastor Joseph Prince - another Kong Hee case

New Creation Church and Joseph Prince is trying to fool the public, just like City Harvest Church and Kong Hee. Both churches and pastors did not disclose how much Joseph Prince's and Kong Hee's income is from royalties from the sales of the pastor's books and DVDs, from speaking engagements, from appearance fees etc. Hello, if I am earning millions of dollars from other sources of revenue, I can also stop drawing a salary from the church. ---------------------------------------------------...
