Video: Father puts coins in piggy bank for daughter for over 28 years, racks up over $5K


Singaporean actor and online personality Xenia Tan recently went viral for breaking an almost three-decades-old piggy bank from her father and finding around 7,000 Singaporean dollars (approximately $5,347).

On Sunday, Tan posted a now-viral video that shows her smashing the piggy bank with a hammer in front of her family members during a Lunar New Year celebration.

“Smashing my piggy bank of more than 28 years to see how much is inside," her TikTok video’s onscreen text says at the beginning.

“My father saved this for me before I was even born,” she shared in the middle of the clip.
