Since getting together with Karena Ng (吳千語), Raymond Lam (林峯) has given her many luxurious items.

Besides gifting her with lavish vacations and Hermes handbags, Raymond reportedly bought Karena a white Land Rover to celebrate her obtaining a driving license.

Before becoming Raymond’s girlfriend, Karena travelled around in a rented car from her company, reports Sudden Weekly, ihktv.com, and Sina.com viat Jayne Stars. 

At the end of every month, Karena had to pay back the company for her car expenses.

Naturally, seeing Karena having to spend a subtantial amount on transportation did not sit well with Raymond.

To ensure that Karena coudl travel to work in comfort, Raymond loaned her his own personal driver and seven-seater van.

According to reports, this was not enough for Karena. Karena hinted to Raymond that she hoped she would receive a car as a gift after obtaining her driving license.

Karena initially set her eyes on a $3.2 million HKD (S$521,000) Aston Martin. Although Raymond wanted to buy the car, an insider revealed that Raymond’s father disapproved of the high-priced gift.

As good friend Lynn Hung’s (熊黛林) Land Rover was quite cool, Karena switched preferences almost immediately.

Since the car only cost approximately $800,000 HKD (S$130,472), Raymond went ahead and bought it for Karena.

Appearing at a promotional event recently, Karena denied that Raymond bought her a Land Rover.

She said that the car mentioned in the report is not under her ownership title. Also, Karena has not received her driving license yet.

As for her ideal car, Karena will prioritize safety features first.
