Dreams vs. Reality: My flat, second round

June 29, 2006

Compared to this $40 million residence my flat somehow looks hotter than ever…

Description on Sotheby’s Realty.com:

“Superb Rosario Candela coop. Sun-flooded, high floor with spectacular views of Central Park. The gallery opens to a corner living room, dining room and library all with 12 ft. +/- ceilings, wonderful original details and 5 fireplaces.
The private quarters include 4 grandly scaled bedrooms with ensuite marble baths. A breakfast room adjoins the butler’s pantry, kitchen, laundry and generous staff wing.
Decorated by Alberto Pinto; this stunning residence is the ultimate trophy apartment.”

That’s the ugliest most expensive residence I’ve EVER seen (sorry Alberto). Look at those s/m cats!

Paris Hilton wants to meet Lukas Podolski

June 29, 2006

Paris Hilton has discovered a keen interest in soccer and the World Cup 2006 in Germany following the realisation that it involves well-defined men running around in shorts. She admits she has crushes on Sweden midfielder Freddie Ljungberg and England captain David Beckham.

But the guy she’d most like to score with is German striker Lukas Podolski, who plays for FC Cologne.

“I think Lukas is the sexiest man on the pitch. I would really like to meet him,” she told The Sun.

Nicole Kidman’s honeymoon resort ?

June 27, 2006

Nicole Kidman wedding
As several sources reported Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have spent up to $200,000 to hire out Fiji’s exclusive Wakaya Club Resort for a weeklong honeymoon.
The island resort is a preferred destination for celebrities to avoid paparazzi and celebrity gawkers.

Other sources reported they’re travelling to Tahiti, not Fiji, because Fiji was once a favored vacation spot for Kidman and her former husband, Tom Cruise.

If she’s on Tahiti right now I think she made a very good decision, as the pics below show.

Paris Hilton bought my dream car

June 26, 2006

Paris Hilton bought a Mercedes SLR McLaren (I wrote about the car 4 days ago) in March 2006. She was spotted with her new toy at the Ivy in L.A. having lunch with her sister and her mom.

O.K., my favourite color for the SLR is silver, but I'm kind of envious…

The world’s second richest man, Warren Buffett, is giving away 85 per cent of his wealth mostly to a charity run by the world’s richest man, Sir William Gates III.Buffet, who is worth more than $44 billion, was Gates’ role model and the two have become close friends since they first met in 1991.

Warren Buffett

According to Fortune magazine, Buffett will give away his Berkshire Hathaway fortune to charity, something he’d previously promised to do after he croaked.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will get $37 billion. Buffett says that they inspired him into thinking about giving money back to society. Buffett will be joining them as trustees of the Foundation.

More here.

Dear Mr. Buffett,

as a part of the society you’re thinking of I would suggest to give $10 million to me. That’s only 0.023 % of your fortune, you wouldn’t even notice it!

Here’s a more plastic view:

$44.00 billion –
$10.12 million (0.023 %)

$43 989 880 000 still left 😉


Dreams vs. Reality: My flat

June 22, 2006

The dream-house shown below is located in Cape Town, South Africa. It’s definitely one of the coolest buildings I’ve ever seen for real (I shot the last pic on my own, it’s from my Cape Town-holidays last year).

Whish I would have that view every morning when I wake up…take a swim in the pool…or in the ocean…
