Get To Know Singapore’s New Rich Kids of Instagram

These next level influencers are living it up and some are even using their fame to promote good causes. Check out the #rkoi you need to start following right now

1. Calista Cuaca, @xcalikins

It’s been too long, back in my paradise 🌴🌊

A post shared by calista 🎀 (@xcalikins) on

It certainly helps that her mother is socialite Jamie Cuaca, but Calista will have you know she is not tied to mummy’s apron strings. With a following of some 170,000, the teen can hold her own. Already a mainstay at glitterati events about town, she is shaping up to be a fashionista who loves skiing and doting on her pet dogs, and who is never far from a cup of coffee.

2. Alex Chew, @alex_chew1985

Just gonna hangout here…

A post shared by Alex Chew (@alex_chew1985) on

Best known as the co-organiser of one of Singapore’s biggest music festivals, Ultra, Alex Chew is also behind businesses such as restaurant The Kitchen at Bacchanalia, recently-opened club Avry and business lounge Madison Rooms. The Porsche-driving entrepreneur parties hard but hey, it’s an #occupationalhazard. In between, the son of the owner of the franchise of KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell in Thailand makes time to go on vacation with his family.

3. Elizabeth Tan, @helloelizabethtan

If you own a pair of shoes from Heatwave and love them to bits, it is Elizabeth Tan you must thank. The entrepreneurial mother of an adorable daughter named Ava – check her out on Tan’s IG – loves to travel and is unapologetic about the fact that it might take time away from her little one. Outside of work, you gotta love her for starting Sight to Sky, a non-profit that brings low-cost, high-impact primary healthcare and education to remote mountain communities in the Himalayas.

4. Elroy Cheo, @elroxcheo

I should start wearing hats like this. No?

A post shared by @ elroxcheo on

Better known as the brother of socialite Arissa Cheo, Elroy is a heartthrob with an Instagram following in the six-figure range (more than 126,000 as of this writing). He is constantly in the company of other traffic-stoppers such as himself, and jets around the world.
