KUALA LUMPUR: The five “Cs” cash, condominium, car, credit card, country club are old hat. Malaysian youth today are all about the five “Bs” billions, Benz, brains, body and bungalow in a partner. Inspirational trainer Chew Hoong Ling, who will be speaking at youth forum Kahwin 4.0 this Saturday, said demand for quality partners from both sexes had increased in tandem with modern times.
“You might want a (Mercedes) Benz or Bentley but get a partner who drives a 15-year-old car. Instead of just a career and cash, you want your partner to have billions,” she joked when interviewed yesterday. On a serious note, she said these five “Bs” did not guarantee a happy marriage as they were merely materialistic demands.
