A devoted Filipina maid inherited six million Singapore dollars (more than $4 million) from her late employer after more than 20 years of service, a newspaper report said Wednesday.

“I am the luckiest maid in Singapore, with or without the money,” the 47-year-old single woman — identified only by the pseudonym “Christine” — told the Straits Times in an interview.

The maid refused to be named in public for fear of possible threats to her life in the impoverished Philippines, where wealthy people have been kidnapped for ransom and some killed by their abductors.

The windfall, including cash and a luxury apartment near the Orchard Road shopping belt, came from the estate of her employer Quek Kai Miew, a medical doctor and philanthropist who died last year at 66.

The maid had also taken care of the doctor’s late mother, and was told that she would be a beneficiary of her employer’s will when it was drawn up in 2008.

“There were no secrets between us. I was not surprised at all when she told me how much I was going to get,” the maid recalled.

“Christine” was devastated when Quek died a year ago, as the two were inseparable, and temporarily moved in with the doctor’s nephew for solace.

“It was heartbreaking for me as I saw more years with Doctor Quek than with my own mother. I would break down every time I thought about her. I could not be by myself,” she said.

“I was always beside her. Wherever she went, I was with her.”

The maid, who is now applying for permanent residency in Singapore, said her newfound wealth had not changed her lifestyle.

“I do not really think much about the money I got. I just live my life as I did before, and not as a rich person,” the maid, dressed simply in a blouse and slacks with short-cropped hair, was quoted as saying.

“I am still who I was before. I cannot behave differently because I have money now. Even my Filipino maid friends here still treat me the same.”

Nearly 200,000 foreign maids, mostly from the Philippines and Indonesia, work in affluent Singapore, which has a population of five million.

I wish to show some appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of such a crisis. After checking throughout the internet and meeting ways which are not beneficial, I assumed my life was gone. Living minus the strategies to the difficulties you have solved all through your main blog post is a critical case, as well as the ones which may have adversely damaged my entire career if I had not noticed your web blog. Your own personal knowledge and kindness in controlling the whole thing was tremendous. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a solution like this. I am able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for the high quality and results-oriented help. I will not be reluctant to endorse your blog to any person who wants and needs tips on this problem.

My wife and i ended up being now cheerful that Albert could carry out his web research through your ideas he received while using the web site. It is now and again perplexing to just find yourself giving out things which some others have been making money from. And we also understand we need the blog owner to thank for that. The main explanations you have made, the straightforward website navigation, the relationships your site make it easier to engender - it's mostly great, and it is making our son and the family understand the matter is satisfying, and that's quite pressing. Many thanks for everything!
