    Looks like the rich trying to outdo each other on who can lose the most

    First the seafood owner, now this ...

    So now the record is

    First place - 100 mil
    Second place - 26 mil

    Feel free to amend the honour roll

    Accordingly to the 93.3 DJ, he calculated that if he can still live for another 60 years, he will need to spend about 13 thousand per month for the next 60 years ...

    Imagine no need to work, can can spend 13K per month ... wow, every month can change systems...

    I think is not 13K, if 13K x 12 x 60 = $9.36millions.
    Should be 130K/month, wow...

    It doesn't take to be a IRAS director to shortlist who ....

    one of these .... as reported in the press. Strike off some of the old rich, the famously strict tycoons, and you should be able to cut them down to 5 .... PLEASE do it privately and DO NOT put any names here

    if you have $100 dollars, you will go bankrupt if you lose $100.
    You need to have thousands of dollars if you want to lose $100.

    Just curious, if our child loses $$$ in gambling, I am sure many of us will give him a good scolding, including his wife, friends, relatives, etc... I wonder whether our rich "uncle" will get anything from anyone?

    Rich people are worry they will be kidnapped, what properties to buy, children fighting for inheritance, etc...
    Poor people are worry that they can't make ends meet, no money for meals, transport, rental, etc...
