World’s Most Expensive Dinner For $2 In Cryptocurrency

You owe it to yourself to experience luxury dinner in Sukhumvit every once in a while. Most days, you only eat at fast food restaurants where everything is deep fried. Treat yourself and the family to gourmet 4-course dinner with desert at a rooftop venue with Bangkok’s skyline as the perfect backdrop. Thailand’s world famous street food is taken to next level with a complex blend of spices and flavours.

Last year, World of Diamonds, a Russian diamond company made waves after it announced an offering hailed as the “World’s Most Expensive Dinner.” The dinner which will be held in Singapore has a price tag of $2 million. It will include an 18-course meal that will be prepared by a Michelin-star chef. 10,000 roses, gold-plated and diamond-encrusted chopsticks worth $17,000 will be used for the dinner. A massive personal fireworks show will precede the presentation of a 2.08 carat blue diamond ring that is named after and endorsed by Jane Seymour, a world famous actress and jewellery designer.

However, Ville Oehman purchased the experience and chose to raffle it to the public using crypto currency. For $2, an ordinary person can experience the world’s most expensive dinner. However, the dinner will not include the blue diamond; instead, V Diamond’s which is Oehman’s self-funded company will use an initial coin offering or ICO. This is a typical way to raise funds for ventures involving cryptocurrency without the usual regulations surrounding fundraising.

One million tokens of ICO will be offered by Oehman worth $2 each to constitute a one millionth ownership stake in the 2.08 carat blue diamond ring. One token will be selected at random and the winner will enjoy the luxury dinner and the extravaganza that goes with it. The winner can also expect a 3-night all expenses paid trip for 2 to Singapore with a chauffeured Rolls Royce for transportation and a 3-hour sunset cruise.

Meanwhile, you have another option to the luxury dinner in Singapore through luxury dinner in Sukhumvit that will treat you to authentic Thai cuisine and Asian fusion with wines and cocktails of your choice. The restaurant ambiance is fabulous with an unsurpassable view of Bangkok.

The interesting fact is that the weight of the child does not affect the analysis. We are in an age where kids health is given more importance than ever because of the growing problem in obesity as well as overweight children in the United States and all over the globe.

According to statistics, one in every three children and teenagers in the United States are obese or over their recommended body weight. What is more worrying is the fact that the figure in the 1970s has already tripled.

Aside from the various health problems brought by being obese, it can also impact the psychological well-being of a child. If a child is overweight, he or she is more likely to suffer from depression, hate their body image and a low level of self-confidence.

The most recent study was conducted by a group of researchers from the University of Gothenburg’s Sahlgrenska Academy located in Sydney. They analyzed the correlation between a child’s weight and psychological well-being.

The study has a total of 7,675 participants between the age of 2 and 9 years old. They came from eight countries in Europe including Sweden, Belgium, Spain, Cyprus, Italy, Estonia, Italy, Germany and Hungary.

The parents disclosed the usual diet of the child and each of them are given a designated Healthy Dietary Adherence Score. Their psychological well-being was also assessed. The trial lasted for two years.

Result showed that there is a link in the diet of children between the age of 2 and 9 years old and their psychological well-being. The report states that children with higher self-esteem at the beginning are those that achieved a high HDAS at the end of the study. The study also shows that the weight of the child does not affect their psychological well-being or their HDAS.

Research such as this is important in finding more facts about kids health and how the parents and community can ensure the well-being of their child in every aspect including physical and emotional.
