Yong had also mentioned in a YouTube video that she moved into a new house with her boyfriend in October 2020, which according to the video, is worth 1.9 million ringgit (S$622,711).

She is currently renting the home, which is also being used as her workspace.

Started her Youtube career in school

In some of her early YouTube videos, Yong mentioned having come across YouTube videos and it started piquing her interest in becoming a YouTuber.

Yong had even wanted to do online sales while in Primary 6.

She began her YouTube career while still in secondary school, in Form 3 (roughly the equivalent of Secondary 3).

While her parents weren't openly supportive then, Yong said that they did not object to what she was doing as a YouTuber.

Even her early videos, which focused on food challenges, TikTok dance challenges, and videos of her hamsters, had reached more than 100,000 views each.

Now, Yong has gone on to post a range of lifestyle content, many of which involves her boyfriend, and even her mum, in elaborate skits and pranks.
