[music |Her Voice ( The Little Mermaid Broadway Workshop)]

When Lam Sai Wing was growing up in communist China he dreamed of someday being rich. He eventually moved to Hong Kong and opened a jewelry store called 3-D gold, and by 2001 had the money to build the toilet of his dreams... Out of gold. And he had enough money left over to build an entire bathroom of gold-- wash basins, toilet brushes, toilet paper holders, towel holders, mirror frames, doors, even bathroom tiles. he topped it all off with a ceiling encrusted with precious gems. Total cost: $4.9 million, which Lam offsets by charging admission to the bathroom. Peeking into the restroom cots $4; to use the facilities, you have to spend at least $138 in the store.

Waste of money if you ask me, it's like flushing the money down the toilet!...

I need to learn how to make jokes.

I watched John Cleese's "Wine for the Confused" and I must say...

I still don't know how to open a bottle properly. :P

you know tha is amusing especialy knowing his circumstances, I normaly don't condone such extravagance as its not in my personal beliefs to want more than you need. In this case though, good for him!

How do you clean a gold toilet? Carefully? Doesn't seem like a job for Soft Scrub.

Early television is strange to watch somehow. Its so...innocent, I guess is the best descripton. I know there's nothing new under the sun and they lived in a world with the same range of weirdness we have, but when you watch them it seems like they're coming from an entirely different place.

Agreed entirely. It's always so strange for me to see how different things really were fromt hen to now, at least in how people represented themselves.
