Curious to know what the community has to say
One of my first bosses who owns a private jet, apparently ordered one of his secretaries to have a significant part of his living space to be covered in full mosaic tiles (read: Expensive), before flying out of Singapore. When he came back, he thought it was ugly, and ordered for the whole thing to be taken out and restored back to its original condition.
Damage was probably six figure.
Not sure if this is counted but a friend I know has his kitchen fitted out with full oven, hob, hood and Smeg fridge just coz they look nice even though he doesn't really cook.
A friend of mine crashed his dad‘s Supercar. Somehow due to a court case as a result of the crash, his dad lost his license as well.
Well, the dad went on to buy a new supercar ( same model as the one my friend crashed). But the thing is he couldn’t drive the car (no license) so the car was for sat when he would start the engine and sit in it.
Have a private golden tap in their office..... ok jokes aside, I know someone who pays in cash when she spends and doesn’t take coins as change(she really says ‘keep the change’) just because her branded wallet doesn’t have a coin compartment. I mean....that’s both extravagant and stupid, yes?
I've a family friend who just splurged $430k on a Porsche and paid in Cash.
He's an old chinese towkay and also pretty senior... been working his whole life.
Imagine if a brand new Porsche cost 430k, imagine how much a higher end Ferrari or Lamborghini would cost these richer Chinese Towkays. It is really immense spending of money and highly extravagant indeed. Haha.
BUT! It does give some perspective of how money and health (life) switches roles as time goes by.
I think I may be keen to write about this story some time soon. Stay tuned~!
Buy a private jet? But after they break down the costs of travel by business everytime plus the total time wasted, it actually makes sense when you're already travelling about 100+ times a year. But still, a little excessive to me for now. Haha.
