Things Money Can Buy
A burger is just like any other burger. Right? Not quite.
Look again. This Burger, though nothing to rave about aesthetically, comes with a price tag of US$200 which makes it the world's most expensive burger which can be found at a Burger King in London, England.
What makes it so pricey? The ingredients include Wagyu Beef, White Truffle, Iranian Saffron & white truffle dusted bun, Pata Negra Slices, Cristal Champagne onion Straws, 25-year-old Balsamic vinegar, Lambs lettuce, Pink Himalayan rock salt, and Hollandaise shallot mayonnaise.
Alright, if you would like to part with a bigger amount, how about this black watermelon?
According to Time magazine, this Densuke Black Watermelon, priced at US$6,100 is
grown only in Japan's northern island of Hokkaido. It is on sale at Isetan, a department store in Tokyo. A 17-pound was sold at record price to a marine products dealer who wanted to support local agriculture.
Of course there are other things money can buy, like this 1935 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 Pescara Spyder going for the price tag of US$1,098,447. It is a classic sports car, once owned by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini which was bought by a private buyer - a record price for that model.
However, if it's property you are looking for to spend your billions, how about one of these apartments in Hong Kong..
Penthouse at The Arch
Price Tag: $28,800,000
A Hong Kong luxury 5,497-square-foot flat in The Arch, is considered to be the most expensive apartment per square foot in Asia. The 80th floor penthouse boasts a private swimming pool and a jaw-dropping view of Victoria Harbour.
Ahh.... la dolce vita..
