Taiwanese Singer Aska Yang Rents A 200 Sqm Place In Xiamen For Just S$640 A Month
The 43-year-old claims he has “no stress” in his life.
Taiwanese singer Aska Yang hit a few road bumps in the earlier days of his showbiz career but it looks like things are finally going smoothly for him.
In 2007, the 43-year-old took part in TV singing contest One Million Star — the same season that gave us Jam Hsiao and Yoga Lin — and was one of the hot faves to win it all until he withdrew from the competition ‘cos he had lied about his real age (well, there are worse reasons to quit a reality show).
Not long after that, Aska got into a tense and high-profile contractual dispute with his manager, but fortunately for him, he’s doing much better in China these days.
Aska’s back doing reality show competitions again
In a recent clip from the second season of Chinese reality talent show Shine! Super Brothers (which is similar to Call Me By Fire), some of the male artistes were seen chatting about their living arrangements.
While some of them have to stay long-term in hotels (which would undoubtedly cost a bomb), Aska revealed that he rents a place in the Xiamen countryside for 3,000 yuan a month.
That’s around S$640, by the way, and his place is a pretty roomy 200 sqm space (he didn’t specify if it’s a house or apartment).
“I have no stress in my life,” he declared.
How many people can actually say that?
However, some netizens were skeptical about the surprisingly low price and speculated that Aska probably isn’t living on Xiamen Island itself.
Many Hongkong and Taiwanese stars have packed up and moved to China in recent years, with many even bringing their families with them.
Taiwanese singer Will Liu’s entire family now lives with him in Shanghai, while former Fahrenheit member Wu Chun no longer has to travel back and forth between Brunei and China now that his wife and two kids have reportedly settled down in Shanghai with him as well.
Aska certainly seems happy living in the mainland
