extravagant than normal for the rest of us we will just have to settle for regular old Body Wash bathroom some of us might refer to the toilet as a throne but jeweler lam Sai Weng took the term a bit

lam Sai Weng decided to create not just a gold toilet but the most expensive bathroom in the world it's located in a jewelry shop in Hong Kong and to use it you must first buy over $100 worth of

and there are a few things better than a warm hearty bowl of soup on a cold winter's day especially if it's a delicious homemade soup although most soups don't take three whole days to make this insanely expensive tube also has an insanely awesome name the Buddha jumps over the wall soup is one of the most expensive soups in the world it got its name from legends claiming it is so delicious that Buddhist monks would leap over the walls of their monasteries in order to break their vows and consume meat because this soup is just so amazing it originated in the Fujian province of China and

than our classic chicken noodle soup the cheapest thing on our list is actually free enjoy a free trivia question courtesy of the riches according to the Guinness Book of World Records what type of sandwich is the most expensive in the world shower while showering is something we do all the time it can be tricky to get the temperature just right especially if you're using an unfamiliar shower at a hotel or friend's house it can seem like you're trying to solve a complex puzzle when you're fiddling with the knobs however if you've got $100,000 to spare this Philbert AG shower is a much easier to use option instead of manually turning a knob you control this shower with a color touchscreen the touch screen controls 18 different showerheads that are aimed at certain zones on your body these thick zones are over your head shoulders upper torso lower torso upper legs and lower legs you can adjust the temperature and pressure of each individual zone so if you want your body to be nice and warm but you don't want to dry out your delicate facial skin by using hot water on it you can just make the water from the overhead zone cool and everything else piping hot you can also use pre-programmed sequences or design your own and in case that isn't awesome enough it can also be configured with lights sounds and even aromatherapy shoes whether we need them to play sports protect their feet or just look great on a night out shoes are something most of us use every day the most famous pair of shoes are the ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland and featured in the movie The Wizard of Oz while Dorothy had to drop a house on someone to score her pair of glittery red shoes he'll have to drop a few million dollars if you want your own at three million dollars these ruby slippers are some of the most expensive shoes in the world in the novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz the shoes were silver instead of red but the red shoes featured in the movie have become iconic former head of Harry Winston Inc Ronald Winston spent two months creating these gorgeous shoes for the 50th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz while the original ruby slippers were decorated in sequins these slippers are covered in 4600 rubies and accented with diamonds so far the only person fortunate enough to wear them was Judy Garland herself perhaps because genuine ruby slippers are out of most people's budget although that's a shame because they look amazing paired with the next item on our list purse if there's one thing we love as much as our precious shoes it's our handbags and if diamonds are a girl's best friend this purse might be enough to forfeit the rest of our purse collections altogether of course you'd probably have to sell off all your other purses to afford the 1001 nights diamond purse this exquisite handbag is officially the world's most expensive according to the Guinness Book of World Records it's estimated value is an incredible 3.8 million dollars it's in an eye-catching heart shape and is encrusted with 4,500 seventeen differently colored diamonds 105 of which are yellow 56 of which are pink and the remaining 4356 are colorless the total amount of diamonds weight and

watches exhibition by the House of Mawlid where it was an absolute showstopper Coe guardian of the House of Malwa stated that the purse is designed to mesmerize with its lavish attention to detail and elaborate workmanship incorporating thousands of diamonds and we'd say the purse accomplishes that although some may find a multi-million dollar price tag even more mesmerizing coffee how would you like to sit back and relax with a nice warm cup of cat poop coffee no well what if we told you that it costs $80 per cup fine stick with your boring beans while we pour ourselves a cup of Kopi Luwak coffee also known as cat poop coffee or civet cat coffee as opposed to regular coffee beans the beans in this hot cup of gross are partially digested coffee cherries that are found in the feces of the Asian Palm Civet the civet cats eat the ripe coffee cherries and then excrete the coffee beans which they are unable to digest fans of the coffee claim that this unique fermentation process gives the resulting coffee its unique flavor after they're collected the beans are washed dried and roasted and just as free-range chicken eggs taste better than the ones from a factory farm it's said that the coffee from free rein civets is superior to that produced by cage civets while a domesticated civet will eat anything you put in front of it a wild civet will select only the finest coffee cherries for your drinking pleasure it's recommended that you drink this expensive coffee black two fully savor the rich and hearty flavor as you contemplate the journey those beans had to take to get into your cup frittata don't be fooled by its name the zillion dollar lobster frittata isn't really a billion dollars that would just be crazy this delicacy can be yours for the much more reasonable price of $1,000 it's sold at the restaurant Norma located inside the ler Parker Meridien Hotel in New York City not only is this the world's most expensive omelet but you'll have to bring a friend or two to help you eat it because it's both quality and quantity you may be used to a two egg omelet but this is made with a half a dozen eggs added to the eggs are ten ounces of exclusive sevruga caviar cream chives and an entire Lobster there is a smaller version available for a mere 100 dollars but that's not nearly as opulent as dropping a grand before noon it's also reportedly quite tasty while some
