Domestic helper in Singapore help receives not one, but two gifts!
Yes, not one, but her employers decided to surprise her with two gifts. In the clip, she is seen digging into crinkle papers, where she finds two boxes wrapped in beautiful gift paper inside.
While taking out the boxes from the bigger box, the employer can be heard saying, “This is part one, that is the part two.”
As soon as the domestic helper holds out one of the boxes, she seems to understand what she’s got. The boy, who is presumably the employer’s child, can be heard saying “iPhone” in the background.
She tears the wrapping paper and instantly bursts into tears.

Upon getting a sneak peek of her gift, she exclaims “Really?” in disbelief.
To which, the employer can be heard saying that it was not an iPhone but a brand new Samsung Galaxy M32.
So What Was In The Other Box?
In the video, one can see the domestic help tearing up with joy as she continues to take out her gifts. And as she reaches the second box, she finds a few phone covers for her new phone.
This was such a beautiful surprise for the domestic helper in Singapore who was actually living far away from her own family.
And while this was going on, the employer’s child can be heard grudgingly saying, “I didn’t get a phone for my birthday.” (It seems someone is not happy!)
