All the buzz over casting announcements for upcoming movie “Crazy Rich Asians”, which will be filmed in Singapore, has piqued our interest to find out who exactly are the ‘crazy rich Asians’ residing here.

After having trawled through the Internet – including Instagram – we’ve put together a list of five young Singaporeans who are definitely living up to their riches, showing off luxury items, posh travel adventures and all that glam.

Many of these potential future billionaires come from wealthy families, and it’s nice to note that some of them take time out of their schedules to give back to the community.

Here’s a look at some of the richest young Singaporeans and what they’re up to:
