Results for Benefits of visiting the Spatest
when these are my good today on the long-awaited video of saunas for a long time I promised you that I will take off my view of how best to visit the saunas for those who are most lose weight for those who gain muscle mass even if the benefits for girls in the sauna for some athletes may be especially some sauna varieties in general today is very such a global I think an interesting topic to me a little strange to pray for my channel so if you interested in this if you also love them sauna as I recently then continue to watch this video even initially I did not much like the sauna I'm more a fan of this restaurant my husband visit very often saunas in every city where we stayed, and the proportion of it until it can live through the night sleep there and somehow I do not really share his such enthusiasm from the recently we bought an annual card to the gym in the gym It was a leisure complex and is actually here and I was wondering what impact It has a sauna on the exercising person because still there are some features after I It quoted the entire Internet to different sources I want to share this information with you you may be wondering Well let's start perhaps the influence of sauna and bath complexes in our body a major impact It turns it on the cardiovascular system and the effect of this should be gradual ie first you Gradually increase the temperature in the same did not let you increase the duration of your visit of this sauna you increase the method and degree of cooling also increases just the frequency of use of the sauna that is, everything should gradually be this as it is everywhere in the sport primary and gradual regularity of course a visit to the steam room sauna in general has a driving effect of that is, it can be compared with the training eg Now ladies 3000 meters and a lot of really compared to the sauna with some exercise because you have increased heart rate in general, we sweat, we like working somewhere and really goes so that's a serious burden certainly difficult to compare this with the run because Breguet say still complex in which the load but still our body It works pretty powerful even for my husband and probably for any person sauna is somehow relaxing place place where you can relax unwind it does not think about anything just really give your body a rest for the sauna our body produces hormones of happiness we feel more relaxed even pain go it is still common notions that everyone knows maybe even the children but also have very very much myths that are associated with a visit to the influence of its sauna on our bodies, and what matters most to athletes, let's see what they can be as has been said when visiting a person sauna in athletes of any person still occur stressful this situation and in our body generated catabolic hormones that destroy our muscles and so sauna immediately after training 6 any exercise where you already lost enough of the fleet you have lost a lot of energy and you immediately visit the sauna still you get the additional stress it seems to me this is a very not safe for your health and of course for your muscles now I have you everything is accessible and understandable I explain after training hard training Our body needs protein and carbohydrates to restore to our muscles because they are weakened So when we go to the sauna there is naturally a high temperature and the high temperature is not very beneficial effect on protein synthesis after exercise so it is very important to monitor the temperature your body is best for your muscles is during this period visits douche that is, heat a little bit cold it will be very useful effect on your muscles on your body, you cheer up your muscles come immediately in tone if you have correctly will eat afterwards will generally zashib be sure to visit a contrast shower after your workout and then to rest days best use of the sauna Naturally there are some contraindications to the sauna first and foremost is of course pregnant Women athletes generally people who hypertension and diseases of the cardiovascular system, and in general I think you need to feel your body because we all completely different if you sit in the sauna you feel unwell ie you feel bad mostly dizzy then immediately leave the sauna and cool down a little bit should still keep dancing body because it is not a joke Work with your heart and there is already a serious matter another common lowest common myth in the sauna for slimming women mostly fat loss itself is not significantly speeds up your metabolism greater weight loss as a title is due to the loss of fluid in your body but not the body fat that is when we sweat, and when we go out Sauna We have the impression that we are a little bit thinner, even if you stand on the scale, you will see minus kilograms or even two because your then during the sauna if it's pretty long hike can take anywhere from a half to two kilogram but in fact it is your Liters Liters your liquid minerals that your out with your then it is not fat because it is a very, very she spread the myth and really certainly today many girls believe in it so it is very important to keep track of how much by then you have lost during a hike in the sauna and be sure to take water to it all the cases immediately to fill as I said earlier it is best to go to the sauna evening it will be easier to fall asleep and then for one and a half to two hours before your workout to your sauna is best to eat protein foods well, it is logical if you let the evening You go to the sauna evening we no longer consume protein foods because the carbon film I need some sort proteins fiber is a good choice for the evening so maybe guys let me tell you that I take with me to the sauna I suppose bags I prepare my body for the sauna that it is doing and what I do after the bath procedures it seems to me it would be interesting because I have quite a long time already I visit all the bath complexes and the first thing I want to tell you about what's in my bag when I go to bath complexes and the first most important thing that should be in my purse is mandatory simply will not go without this home is naturally a bottle of water somewhere in the half to lose 2 liters necessarily have to be with me because especially we walk together May 2nd to the most I do not go even better if some are concoctions of some herbs tea natural it will just magically especially with some berries in general, you can always something new to take with and it will be very beneficial for your body and be sure to drink the water because dehydration as I said, it is very dangerous 2 that he does not have to be a special bag is cap cap to protect your hair to just that they do not knock down the shooting or not and of course such high temperature in the sauna, and they are very beneficial effect on your hair, they also give some good hair and they just defend and no matter where I go there a table or just sit on a chair I do not take this cap is still what I look like in the main thing that my hair is protected naturally in the bag I have to be rubber flip flops to nothing there catch and indeed as a snow leopard to go there, I can not even imagine, and Of course, too, towel after a shower before the sauna and so on it is also necessary to also I have a great cosmetic because it where I always some new masks, new scrubs it constantly pet might just below the cap for our some hair mask, I go there at this hour, let her have it, I enjoy network beauty treatments, and bath that is organize ourselves some spa treatments when I go to the sauna another of the interesting point, I often observe when a girl puts on scrubs itself and here in this here we are mourning as Ravana go straight to the sauna let hamam where they steamed out skin on skrabiruyu itself is supposedly faster will work really do not need to do so it is best if you visit a sauna and then go wash it off under his pure soul and only if inflict on all your favorite cosmetics and skrabiruete already the clear skin because when we are do we have a lot of leaves dead skin particles and when you apply this scrub you like stirred his own scrub blow retinue of dead skin and is absorbed very bad all natural skin should first breathe and nothing should prevent it so that all their beauty treatments carried out only after a shower and let me tell you probably the most basic types of saunas and their especially the first one it will probably all the same Turkish bath and Finnish sauna and infrared sauna has probably this is probably still the most 3 main types that you can find in any bath complex Naturally there are some differences between them, my love is a Turkish bath I just love it, we somehow it broke, I just do not even go sauna because not only is there and probably go it is tiled institution is tiled room deferred tiles where there is some kind of a boiler which has very hot water if this is simply expressed through a small hole and exits the steam that is all the heat the sauna all the heat is due to the hot steam is very useful for your skin is the first thing that will be beneficial to the skin in order to depart these particles horny so that you were so steamed it is good for the skin but not very good for the heart, too, so be careful and it can sit can be minutes, 5-10 for me it is a lot, and then rushes here and so little plunging into a swimming pool that will be very useful that is, again, contrast and see those you have visited in the warmth then again the cold is very useful next sauna is a Finnish sauna is a room that lined with some chopped up nets where such a step is generally a very familiar place for all basically there center or somewhere on the side stands some boiler that is embedded stones in the main it electric ie all the heat comes from these stones to raise the temperature of the Finnish sauna Many pour vodichku here on these stones can also be diluted in water in that you will add to little tiles of some essential oil and which then again, decoctions of herbs herbs it to be useful to inhale your lungs that is also very good sauna there I can not very long sit because it is still very hot there and the last a beautiful sauna is for me such a gentle temperature around there 30 and 60 degrees especially that she is made of wood and there on the sides Valcke infrared lamps by which you defending as though the sun that is your body heats up there certainly is much easier be over there before I was even half an hour can be seems to lie not to stand too, but again, as I have said everything individually and you have yourself to feel your body seems to me an infrared sauna winter time when we do not have enough sun is what you need It warms your body and your soul but what is your favorite kind of saunas sure to write about it in the comments below this roller Also write what you take when you go to a beautician in bath complexes well, you thank you very much for watching, I hope you learned something new the original and will now know what is the benefit did you actually get when you go in very well, and we'll meet in the next video next video subscribe and put huskies all the luck bye Bye
Hi, welcome to Airstream! I'm in Jackson Center, Ohio here at here at the brand new building that that we've recently completed here at Airstream and i've got the pleasure of sharing with you today our collaboration with Pottery Barn and it is an absolute treat. You know first why do we do collaborations here at Airstream now these shells haven't changed much over the years we're 90 years old now the shell looks so very similar to what it looked like years ago and you have a finite amount of space that you need to design to what we love is to bring in designers like we've done with pottery barn to give a new perspective on this shell the same shell that you've loved and come to know but then a different approach on the inside and i've got a lot to share on the inside and what a great partner with pottery barn you know they're the only company in barron's 100 most sustainable companies in terms of a furnishing company it's it's a fantastic partnership with airstream because we're very sustainable here at the factory renewable energy credits we've got a path to carbon neutral by planting trees they do very similar things so this collaboration is more than just product it's also philosophies two iconic companies coming together and it really really has come together nicely before i get to the real pottery barn elements i want to point out a few things that airstream does uh to the shell and what makes this so unique in the rv industry but then also um talk about what what we're doing differently in our lineup for many of you that understand our lineup from bambi all the way up to classic how does this pottery barn shell stack up against our lineup what you're going to see is several items from our classic line which is the most expensive not all but i'll point those out to you along the way and some things that we've done differently as everybody knows the airstream shell is made of aluminum it's light it lasts a long time and it is a it's rounded so it tows fantastic you won't even know it's behind you really it does a great job a couple unique things up front here that i want to point out that we're doing on the pottery barn edition is standard is lithium batteries this technology obviously is in cars it's in homes it's back up energy and it's on the pottery barn and that gives you several benefits uh in addition to the added power that it does over an agm battery or a lead acid battery it has much more cycle time so have a longer life and it actually will give you a good reading of how much power you have for monitoring systems you'll notice on the battery box there's a heater lithium when it gets cold it needs to be heated that comes standard with this pottery barn so you're all handled there you will also notice this does have the power jack up and down and then also has a light so when you are docking at night you get into the campground and you're trying to disconnect your vehicle this does that for you this is a new um demco hitch where it in the old trailers you would have to unlock before you put the ball on not on this one it does it for you just put it right on the ball and it will lock automatically so a really nice feature and one less thing you have to do when you're hooking up or unhitching on the front of airstreams we call these solar rock guards why do we call these solar rock guards is because they also act as a shade for the sun so it gives you some reprieve on the inside as the sun's beating down hopefully you're someplace warm and then these are stainless steel so everything else you see here is aluminum this is stainless steel why is that well it's protecting your aluminum and it can be removed over time if you want to update it but you're not going to hurt the front of your aluminum so let's head down the the other side of the trailer here and there's a few really key features to point out the first you'll notice our appliances and our hookups they're either either have aluminum that we put on them or they're colored the same as the aluminum color we really want that to blend in we really want to highlight the exterior aluminum that's going to reflect the very adventures you're on everywhere you go such an iconic look and we really want that to blend in also notice the the portholes here as windows they're riveted we make these windows in-house we don't buy them from a supplier and each one is is riveted let's talk about the rivet this is a buck rivet which means you have two people installing each one of these rivets you got an individual on the outside with the rivet gun and you have somebody on the inside with a bucking plate to make sure that that's flattened out and correctly installed there's over 3 500 of these that took two people to install on this entire trailer it's really is a labor of love it's a true artisan that's building an airstream on the pottery barn edition we're doing standard window awnings this one goes all the way from front to back what are the advantages of that it's it's added protection from the sun when it's hot and it's blazing and it's also added protection from the rain if it's raining out you can drop those and still open your window and get that cross ventilation these are from zip d awnings we've had a relationship with them for a long time and it comes standard on the pottery barn on this side of the coach you're going to have an exterior shower you're going to have your water hook up when you get to the campground your electrical hookup this one is a 50 amp service standard which means you have two air conditioners on the rooftop you also have your water tank fill so if you're off the grid and you don't have a hook up to a hose line you're going to be pulling from your tank all of that's on this side that's actually locked so no one can access that this particular model you'll see it on the inside is a twin bed configuration what's nice about the twin bed is because the beds are out on the side that offers accessible storage from the exterior on both sides so you'll see a nice big compartment door here and then also on the other side you'll see a compartment door not only is that some added storage with the twin beds but it also will store all of the accessories that i'll show you here in a bit from pottery barn you'll see tasteful badging throughout the pottery barn this isn't a sticker this is going to last a long time these airstreams become heirlooms and that's why we really do our best to make sure that we use cast aluminum pieces cast aluminum bumpers which i'll get to but that is the difference between airstream and other rvs when you look at another rv and you see a white wall there's usually a min a particle board on the back side of that fiberglass so you see a fiberglass trailer there's actually a wood substrate behind it on this this is a aluminum exterior skin we have aluminum interior skin aluminum ribbing and a composite floor there is no wood in the shell of this airstream costs a little bit more money but it's going to stand the test of time all right now let's uh go to the rear of the coach where i can point out some some features that are unique to the pottery barn and actually the classic one of them is this tail light the design of the tail light is very similar to the classic this is a cast aluminum tail light it's not that plastic tail light that you find in a lot of rvs that's just not going to last a while this is going to last longer than me it's uh it is a very robust tail light as well as the bumper cast aluminum bumper really gives this such an iconic shape and look on the rear but it's also functional there's storage under here where you can house your hoses or electric electric wires and any other tools that you don't want to bring inside that are a little dirtier window awnings on the back as well this is the bedroom on this model on this floor plan really easy to operate just pulls right out and then you'll have an arm here that'll go up and lock the window so very simple to use and again great not only in the sun but also during a rain storm up top you've got a rear vision camera so this will hook into your tow vehicle so when you're backing up you can actually see where you're going a lot of high-end motorhomes has that we offer that standard on the airstream to really help you tow tastefully done badging again all around the trailer with pottery barn and really nice rear rear end of the trailer one thing i want to point out and this is really an airstream feature is look at the windows they even go around the corners this is in the front and back so when you're out nestled in your adventure and you want to see the mountains you want to see the water you want to see the great plains of this country you're going to have a wonderful view of wherever you are from inside the travel trailer this is just i love that feature of an airstream this really highlights it out here think about backing up to whatever view you have and in the morning you wake up and you see that view just all around you it's really panoramic styled window so circling around to the campsite side there's a lot to show here and i'm actually going to highlight some key features with pottery barn we have them set out here you know pottery barn is really a leader in both indoor furnishings and accessories but also outdoor and they are participating in both indoors and outdoors here so you'll see a great table and chair set really comfortable so when you're camping you can really take advantage of this and these fit nicely right inside one of the storage compartments we have them set out here but it comes with plates and cups and silverware how about this an airstream salt and pepper shaker these are fantastic a nice added element here i also do want to point out the storage bins these will be through throughout the trailer really in the in the bedroom area underneath the beds but these are soft clothes so you can take these in your house you can pack take it back out to the pottery barn airstream set them in their place and it's really easy to get in and out and it's easily accessible from the top so you don't have to pull them out of the storage compartment every time really nice uh touch from pottery barn and then we're really excited this is something new and and unique to pottery barn their designers really thought this through but this is almost like a party ledge is what we're calling it so as you are hosting and and you have guests over you can actually access it right from the window here this uh this hooks right into the window frame and these bars can pull off easily so you can store them away but what a great place to put some some appetizers some drinks whatever you want it can even be a workstation if you're tying some flies you're out fly fishing there's a lot of uses for this and i thought that was a really smart integration from pottery barn and something you know they saw that we didn't so we're really excited about that uh the awning this is a unique awning for pottery barn this fabric so it is exclusive to them you won't see this on any other airstream and a power awning comes standard just like the classic that we built and what's great about the pottery barn and i'll cover it on the inside but this is all smart controlled so not only is there a button in that you can push and this awning will will go out or retract but you can also do it from your phone so if you're outside or you're away from your coach and there's a storm coming up and you want to get the awning in just hit a button super easy as we head on the inside there's a few things i want to point out here first look at this floor mat it's branded it comes with the pottery barn edition you're always home so wherever you go with your trailer you take your home with you and i think that's a great way to reference this collaboration because you are always home and you know pottery barn is really in the residential business home residential home business and this feels really residential on the inside so you really do always feel it at home one thing that we've included on the pottery barn that you see on the classic is the doorbell that's kind of a nice residential touch hit that when guests come over it's kind of a nice little feature and there's actually a couple really good features on this entry door first off i'd like to point out is the screen door has got some great branding from pottery barn it's tastefully done always home on the bottom that's the kick plates here so you don't damage your screen but they've added a chalkboard which is fantastic you got a to-do list you can write it down go fishing go hiking you know hopefully it's all fun stuff or a message to uh to your friends or somebody can message you i thought that was a really cool touch as you're out and about you can have fun with this but uh really nice that's very unique that is that is unique to pottery barn we don't do that in any other airstream i thought that was a lot of fun and um and nice i i told you we make our own windows we also make our own entry doors most rv companies will buy an entry door from a manufacturer we actually fabricate all of this in-house this entry door this screen door alone has 16 welds eight on each side so a total of 16. it's it's a real labor of love this entry door alone takes eight hours to build and it really is like a bank vault very sturdy and encloses very very securely so let's get to the inside of this what makes this unique from potter reborn there's a lot to see inside let's take a look at the inside and before i really start pointing out these incredible features let's first talk floor plan in our collaborations of the past for the airstream fans that remember this we did a 27 fb layout which is a 27 front bed this is a 28 rb so it's a rear bed 28 foot it's the first time we've done a collaboration in this configuration and i think when i show you some of the pottery barn features you'll see why we did that and so let's start in the front of the coach here in the living area and the first thing you're going to notice is this extremely inviting sofa we actually build this in-house here at airstream and it's based off of pottery barn's big sur collection and down to the details of the foot at the bottom of the sofa here really gives it that residential look now for those of you who have owned air streams in the past this is the first time we have used this cushion which actually has springs inside of it so the ability to make it feel much more residential has been really really upgraded and is very very comfortable so in addition to being comfortable it's also functional so right here to my left you can pull out this tray and now for those of you who can work from the road we can work from anywhere tablet laptop very comfortable could actually set one of these pillows here and it's a great functional device here on the pottery barn they've really given this a lot of thought i'm really excited about this furniture so over right across from the sofa is a really great feature that we've added and if you think about camping where do you put your shoes you're out hiking they're dirty this is a great place to put your shoes as you enter the trailer so you don't have to worry about tracking mud and everything else inside of your beautiful pottery barn looking at the back look how beautiful and inviting this is a wainscoting cabinet this is something we haven't done before but it really gives you that pottery barn look and it's matched up well with this black oak laminate on the bottom so you kind of have a little bit more weight to the to the design on the bottom of the of the cabinets and the light airy feel to the top and then the matte black details throughout really reflect the pottery barn collections in their residential business even down to this light which we actually copied off of one of their residential lights the rv lights are a little bit different but it's led gives it that bulb look but it's still led so it saves you on your battery power it's not as hot as your standard light and it's got that nice black matte finish even on your reading lights that translates to the black matte as well so just a really inviting residential look to the rear of the coach and these pillows they come with it and they're all from pottery barn's collection including this hand woven blanket be great to sit and watch tv at night very comfortable in the overhead here there's a few things to point out you have a sound system here by fusion that you can play music you've also got all of your you got an additional charger but you have all of your router in here as i mentioned we have several classic features one big one is a the entire electrical system here and it's a smart system and there's a router in the back of this cabinet this is an upgraded router it does two things it's really connecting you to this trailer so you could literally be several states away and it has an antenna and through the cell service you can power the awning you can turn on the air conditioning when it's plugged in so you have that smart control it's like a smart home it's pottery barn residential and residential has smart homes this you have in an airstream and it's super easy to use you can use it right on your iphone or android device operates everything on the coach and in addition to having that connectivity to operate everything on the trailer you can actually upgrade and get cell phone service and now you have wi-fi so if you're on the road you want to work or you just want to stay connected with family you can do that as well so it's a cell phone service we actually partner with a t you buy a sim card by plan and you can get wi-fi on the road so again just like your home and i mentioned it outside but look at these panoramic windows they're just really open up so as you're camping you're going to have the best view that you can possibly have but when you need privacy pottery barn suggested this these fabrics for the curtains it'll close it out very nicely it's very soft warm and i think they've done a great job of keeping this very consistent in the design so the rear of this uh sorry excuse me the front of this travel trailer is very comfortable very residential and and serves very well all right so now we're gonna head to the kitchen galley and the dinette area and there are several things here that's a first in an airstream and really driven by the designers at pottery barn right away you're going to see a butcher block this has such a great design element it's a walnut butcher block it's real wood it's got a black grain uh to it uh it's just it really adds a nice element and if you look at the size of the sink too it really is this chef's type of sink very big just it you can really fit a lot in it and then when you don't need it you can cover it with the block which adds a tremendous amount of counter space black matte on the faucet again carrying that theme throughout really pulls out the black portions of the wood just really a dynamic looking countertop especially with this marble looking top that really is light and airy and really makes it look like stone but this is a really cool feature too i love this piece so the garbage can pulls out but what's nice is you have a cutting board here that also pulls out so as you're cutting your vegetables or whatever you're doing here you can then swipe off the pieces into the garbage can how smart is that i thought that was a really clever design that our designers and the pottery barn designers came up with now here's the other cool part this doubles as a serving tray so as you're hosting outside and you need to take some cocktails or some appetizers out you can also use this outside we will be providing some oil rub to make sure you maintain this over time because it is real wood but great dynamic really softens the whole look and i think it they've done a just a fantastic job i've already covered the shoe storage in the booth area here but this seating is just as comfortable as the the sofa that i just shared with you but look at this table it really has that rustic design that adds a lot of texture and design elements so i really love what they've done here with this table we've never done something like this before and what i also love is there's a pedestal here so you can actually move it forward and you can move it side to side so easy in easy out depending on if you have somebody bigger on one side and smaller on the other you can really move this around of course it locks too and then the entire pedestal drops down these pillows go to the middle and it creates another sleeping position so you have sleeping in the bedroom you can have sleeping on the dinette and then of course this would make a nice bed if somebody wanted to sleep on the sofa another element that pottery barn has done are these roman shades this is something unique to airstream we have not really done these easy to operate gives you great privacy when they're down but it also gives a spit of softness you know the airstream interior is all aluminum which is great it really reflects and is open it's easy to clean but it can also kind of be a hard element where this really softens the design and i think the designers picked out something that really matched the whole pottery barn theme and then offers something different and look how easy it was to push up so a lot of really good features that we've done for the first time in the galley area here is where you have some added storage and then there's also some drawers here for your utensils and they are also soft closed drawers so really great galley space and then of course a lot of storage in the overheads as well so you know i just like to point out look at the hinges this is a metal hinge you go to a lot of rv companies and they have a plastic gas strut we spent a lot of money on that but that's going to last a long time and stand the test of time it's actually lit in here as well and of course with that aluminum skin it really reflects back so it's easy to see your items on the inside new for this year too we have always had ducted air conditioning but now we have an easy to access filter on the ceiling it's right in the middle of the trailer this comes with two air conditioners so you'll see two of these a couple screws pop out you can actually change your filter a lot easier we went to our ducted air conditioning gosh about six or seven years ago and what that does is it where the filter is is where it's drawing the air and then on these round vents is where it drops the air so it really spreads out the air conditioning uniformly throughout the coach so it keeps you comfortable and it's also really quiet so for those of you with older trailers you might get a lot more noise when it just dropped right into the trailer but so this has the most updated air conditioning system here at airstream as well the appliances are fantastic the cooktop here stainless steel and it really looks residential something that we tried to find for pottery barn to give it that residential look and of course it has a cooktop cover so you can add additional counter space when you're not using the cooktop and then below you can actually get an oven or you can option in this convection oven which will still brown your biscuits i'm from west virginia and our family loves brown biscuits so this convection will do that or you can get the oven either way and then some additional storage underneath it also in the galley there's cubby holes for spice racks and some other areas for storage really thoughtfully designed okay so on the pottery barn a very unique feature that we haven't done before in a collaboration is the refrigerator now this looks like every other refrigerator you've probably seen but the difference is this is an all-electric refrigerator now why is that important uh well couple things it actually cools faster than your typical gas absorption refrigerator that pulls off of your lp tank and it operates off your batteries well we have lithium batteries here with solar so we've got more power to operate this and actually takes very little power from your batteries anyway so it stays cooler longer and it actually gets cooler quicker the other thing when you're driving down the road and you're going through tunnels you're not having to pull from your lp to operate your refrigerator so this is a little safer operation and route where you really can't do that with the gas absorption some other side benefits is on a gas absorption we have to add two vents to the back of the refrigerator on the exterior we don't have to do that here so that eliminates more clutter on your sidewall as you're looking at the beautiful aluminum fantastic refrigerator this is a norcold but we're really excited about the all-electric refrigerator we've done lots of testing and we think the performance is is a real improvement so as we cross over to the other side let me talk a bit about the smart home technology now as i mentioned all of these things on this screen can also be on your iphone or your android device but i would like to point out some functions that this this will do so this the provider for this screen is in the whole multiplex system is c zone and this is a touch screen and look at the detail right away you have a pottery barn logo on the screens the designers really just notice the details and making sure that it's consistent throughout the trailer but it's really simple it you just swipe through each screen and for the added functions and there's uh first off on the top there's actually mode so if you're going away you hold down the away mode and it will turn everything down for you turn it off so you can leave the trailer for a while if you're going to sleep you hold down the sleep mode it'll actually turn off all the lights well you imagine when you have an iphone and you're sitting in your bed you hit that mode it does it for you or you can do it here at the screen and then on board so you hold that down and it'll light everything up so you don't have to go in and hit the individual light so we've taken the time to give you some modes that we feel are going to be the most common requests then if you really want to get into the details you can dive as much as you want it'll tell you whether you're on shore power or not it'll you're able to turn on your inverter so what the inverter will do is it'll invert the 12 volt battery system into 110 volts so you can run certain outlets and and some other microwave while you're while you're running off a battery and you're not plugged into shore power but you can operate your inverter from here with the lithium technology we can now give you how much battery you have left here so it's fantastic as as you get low you realize hey i need to charge this up whether i connect it to my car or truck and turn on the alternator which will charge up the batteries or plug it in or just to reduce the amount that you're using all that's right here shows you how much is lp is in your lp tanks which is critical to know because if you're out camping you don't want to run out so you can really keep an eye on that you can actually turn on all the exterior lighting all the interior lighting and it'll be a map of the trailer you just hit the room or the area of the exterior part of the trailer that you want to turn on and it's easy and remember i mentioned we have two air conditioners so you actually have two zones here in the airstream and you can set it to different temperatures so if you have a guest sleeping up front and they like a little warmer that's fine set it to what they want and if you want a cooler you can set it differently in the back and the bedroom as well so front and rear also fans so if it's not too hot not too cold you just want to open up one of these fans to get some ventilation in you can operate that as well both in the front and then also in the bathroom and then that's really all the controls and all these controls are available on your cell phone too as i mentioned on your iphone or android device so it's a great system it's all smart and because we have that router and cell phone antenna as long as this is connected to cell phone and you're connected to cell phone from your device or wi-fi you can control this trailer from anywhere i could be in china right now with a connection doing all of these controls it's really really awesome it's just not a local control it's a remote true remote which is nice to have that visibility on your trailer so now that we've covered all of the smart technology let's go into another unique part of the trailer and that is the whole bathroom area and dressing area right off the bat you'll notice there's a track here there's a beautiful fabric that will cross over and give the privacy if you do have guests or if somebody's getting dressed or using the restroom back here next to it is a sizable storage cabinet with a full length mirror so when you do get dressed you really got a good look and see how you're you're you're looking before you head out and then lots of hanging space and storage space in here this is what we consider a split bath on the 28 rb this is the bathroom carries through that matte black finish on the frame etched frosted glass for a little privacy you have a nice seat inside and even the faucet is matte black as well so really residential looking then on the other side is where the the toilet and vanity is and it's just got a nice airstream feature with the porthole it's again carrying the matte black it's a frosted glass which allows a little light in which is helpful but it also is frosted so it gives you that privacy and then step into this bathroom it is absolutely stunning with the subway tile on each wall which really brightens up the whole room it's a small space but you don't feel like you're in a small space the ceramic vessel sink is outstanding and very residential and doesn't take up a lot of counter space and then you've got this medicine cabinet slash mirror it's a round mirror something we've never done before has a great has a really good design element to it and a lot of surface area so as you get ready it's just very functional and then look at the sconces again from a pottery barn collection really carries the black mat through the trailer and then also their own unique dna on the trailer as well and the matte black down to the toilet paper holder and all of the cabinet pools really is an outstanding layout and even down to the little matte black shelf in here for some added surface area so when you are camping you can put some toothbrushes or toothpaste or whatever you want some soap on that tray so the bathroom i think is just very stunning very different and i think i think the designers knocked it out of the park okay so now we're gonna head into the bedroom and you'll notice uh we have twin beds this is an option for pottery barn you can get a queen bed or you can get a twin bed configuration we've really paid a lot of attention to the comfort of the bed let's face it when you're out on adventures you've had a long day you want to sleep well you're going to sleep incredibly well in a pottery barn pottery barn is famous for making things comfortable and this is no exception the the twin bed configuration gives you a couple unique features in an airstream and this isn't unique to pottery barn but as i mentioned on the exterior we actually utilize underneath the bed for exterior storage and in addition there is some interior storage underneath the bed so that's helpful you'll notice this walkway in between so when you are changing or getting ready for the day it gives you a little bit more room to do so and the actually the bed surface of the two is much more than a queen bed uh part of the reason is when you have a queen bed it has to stop short of the doors you come in the bedroom which makes sense you got to get around it but we can actually carry this all the way up to the wall so for the taller uh folks out there this is this is very helpful and it provides more interior storage because over the end of the bed is in an ad is an added cabinet on both sides so both twin beds will have its own overhead cabinet that you won't get on the queen bed configuration but if you're a queen bed uh buyer or or somebody who enjoys sleeping in queen bed instead we have that option as well so this is just one particular layout a few things i like in addition to this incredibly comfortable comforter from pottery barn i am on a memory foam mattress it's very very comfortable and and then there's some features here that are really we haven't done so in the past but we've added a pull out table top to give you some added counter space or or surface area rather on the nightstand in addition to this tabletop extension you also have storage in between the bed as well for for items you want to get out of the way this light is fantastic it's actually you just touch it and it comes on and off and then if you'll notice you have two usb chargers here so for cell phones or tablets you can charge your devices right here too reading lights again carrying that matte black finish they operate independently so somebody wants to sleep and the other still wants to read not a problem you can do that and then i love this detail and you can't really see it in here but you're you lay down for your good night's rest and you realize the lights are on up front now i got to get up and go to the front not in not in a pottery barn airstream there's actually switches right up here you can hit go to sleep mode and you're done or if you have your cell phone next to you you can actually turn it off on your cell phone but if that's away from you you still have this ability to do that and right above your head so easy to access this is a fantastic bedroom you can really tell pottery barn brought their design chops on the residential into the interior of an airstream and it really helps us to kind of reimagine the interior of an airstream and i think the designers of pottery barn in collaboration with our designers have just hit a home run so that is the bedroom and i can't wait for you to see one in person because i don't even think this is doing it the justice it deserves so make sure you go to a dealer and check one out and they can share with you all these incredible features you
This is Susie, a wonderful wife and mother of four stunning kids. At the first glance, her house doesn't stand out in any way . She's got a modest living room, couple of bed closets and a plain front lawn . But there is one thing that stands out. That's its price. $11 million. Well, you may ask .. - How come? I am Zhanna Badoeva, an anchor. And this is Singapore. You are very welcome to the marvelous "The Life of Others". New York Venice Dubai Jerusalem Tokyo Paris The Life of Others What's the meaning of "to be born in Singapore"? To go to school, to fall in love, to get married, to hold a job and to reach a great age. Let's clear it all up! One can come from an ordinary family, as Anita Pereira, who has two kids and a husband, biotechnologist. One can live in a tiny flat and do office job from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Or other can be born in the family of Denis Lima, a police officer. And wait him back home from work all evenings long without any worries. As the crime rate in Singapore is very low. Or one can be born in a large family of multimedia businessmen. And live in a private house. So no matter what family you were born in, I am so curious to clear up one's life from the birth till seniors in the country which belongs to the TOP 10 most expensive ones in the world. To be born in Singapore is already a big luxuriousness. There is no free medicine at all. Normal Delivery in Government Singaporean hospitals costs on average $4000. If you choose a private hospital, fees could be around $7000 for a normal delivery and around $10000 for Caesarean delivery. Within the next two months a newborn baby will attend a kindergarten. The cost can reach up to $300 per month. Let's see what Singaporean pay for. In Singapore children at the age of two months start attending special childcare centers. Just think of that! So, five times a week, kid spends his whole day in this special childcare center from 7 am till 7 pm. And I am so much curious to figure out how it works. And what they are busy with all day long. What I enjoyed most was the fact that every morning the medical attendant gives each kid a full checkup: take а temperature, check if he has a sore throat. And only after all this procedure a kid joins the rest in the childcare center. In case of any suspected case, a kid will return back home. Po Jia Yi Bi, a nursery teacher. We almost never put into quarantine our childcare center, it helps us to overcome different viruses such as flu or Zika fever easily. And that's the reason why Singapore, comparing to other Asian countries, didn't have any epidemic of tropical diseases long ago. As you can see, kids are studying here. They are playing, drawing. And having different interactions. Lunch they have in the other section. And just check the way they sleep. Such a special mattresses are used for sleeping. Each kid wears his pajamas. And covers their mattress with a bed sheet, which they bring from home. Each kid makes his own bed. So they pull down the shade and fall asleep. By the way, it is very comfortable. No, it's not true. It is very tough. When a kid, I used to sleep in a bed with pillows and blankets. But here kids used to sleep in completely different way, and they look pretty happy anyway. That's so interesting! You pay $400 for your kid sleeping on a floor. The reason is that the floor space is very expensive in Singapore. They don't have large floor areas anywhere. The space is used rationally. For not occupying lot of space with beds, they use mattresses only. What else arrested my attention is the multi- nationalities in Singapore: the Chinese, the Indians, the Malays And all of them speaks their native languages. As there is no Singaporean language. Tell me, guys, What language do you use, as there are so many different nationalities here. - You are right. There are so many different races in Singapore, that we prefer English as the common one. Since the childhood, every kid speaks freely two languages: English and his native language. Besides, most childcare centers don't have their private yards. The reason is that the land is very expensive. That's why kids don't spend lot of time walking outside, as in our countries. But they stay in and have fun the way it is possible. OMG, how do they do it? Let's do it some other way)) I like these movements, it is so much understandable for me. I don't know what about children, and as for me I am already tired. Singapore is known as a country of fines and penalties. One only can imagine what restrictions they just don't have! You are not allowed to chew a bubble gum. The penalty is $370. You are not allowed to blow your nose. To Spit in the street. To litter. To drink and eat in the subway. To swim in the sea in the night. To feed nomadic animals. Even by not flushing in a public toilet you can get a penalty. In case you are caught. So being a Singaporean means to be aware of all the laws and restrictions ever since one was at school. What comes from disobedience. Penalties exist at school as well. And it is permitted. Tutor can involve a wooden cane in pupils punishment. And this is allowed. But the fault should be pretty serious. It means that he either beat someone or stole something. So in this case s tutor, without parents permission, can beat a kid with such a wooden cane. And is it all true. Let's figure it out. But it hurts. It really hurts. This is an average Singaporean school. Kids are having vacations now. So here they will all return later. And now let's see what they have here in piece and silence. Studying here costs $8 per month. This one is a Governmental school. And Singaporeans are not allowed to attend any private schools, as it is only for foreigners. That is the Law. Overall, they pass the same subjects as our pupils, languages, math, literature etc. But there is one subject that stands out from the rest. Fara Suhami, Binti Sarat. Two times a week we have racial harmony lessons. We teach children about many races, which exists in the world. And all of them are equal. Daniel, a school girl. "In case we hurt somebody in a social network concerning his race, we will be strictly punished". And here some school children are waiting for me in the form. I've got some tricky question for them. - Do you know what it is? -Don't be afraid)) -Have you ever been punished by such a wooden cane? -No. As far as I know, such a punishment is allowed in Singapore. But the wooden cane can be used for boys only. So that is why, only one boy is aware of this stick. Right, according to the law, it is allowed to beat pupils with a wooden cane, but nobody do it anymore. We just talk and explain. So Devil is not so black as he is painted. Higher education in Singapore is considered to be the best one in the world. Being a Singaporean student means to create a pavilion in such a strange shape. To win the Presidential grant, and to bring it to life in the very center of the city. Let's check it now! Here is the very Institute. It is considered to be one of the most prestigious in the world. To-be-designers, to-be-architects, and even to-be-inventors study here . That's the way students are studying alone or in groups and working on their future projects. Anrea, ciao! - Hello! What are you busy with? I am working on this invention, I call it "moyo" Let me check it. Look at it, it even has eyes ! Well, these guys invented this device for office workers. Those who stuck in work all day long. They don't even move within the whole day, and as a result feel pain in their back etc. So they created a special card, which you should put on this device, and then it starts crying and begging to eat. So an office worker should stop working, grab it and walk with it a little bit, and stretch his bones same time. So same time you will move at least a bit. That is the purpose of this invention. Andre is just a first year student. After graduation he will be involved in medical equipment inventions. -Do you plan to stay in Singapore after graduation? - Well, I would love to move to Europe .. But any way I would love to come back to Singapore and to work here. - You are welcome to our countries. We need such professionals as you are. All right, guys, here is your Tamagotchi. Keep working on it, as it still needs some upgrades. Any way, you are just a first year student. Actually there are many blocks here. You will never guess where I am right now. This is library! And an incredible thing is that there are no books here, only empty white walls instead of regular bookshelves, which we used to. Only electronic data storage devices are used . Here you can find any book on a big screen, The Theory of Everything by Stephen Hawking, for instance. It's like the Library of Future. By the way it is free for everyone. Not just students. Even my producer is reading here something right now. I hope it will make him even smarter now. Above all they've got here the Olympic size pool. Sports ground. Gym. Pavilion for technical experiments. I wonder how much does it cost to study at this Institute? The cost of studying at the university per year is approximately $15K to $22K. Depending on the profession you have chosen. Here is my favorite dining room. I am curious what students eat at at he university where they pay almost $30K per year. Hello! Kian, 19 year old student. So it's time to have dinner now. Let's go and check what we gonna have for dinner today. Look, here we got Pekinese chicken. You can choose either pasta to go with that. It can be boiled, steamed, fried. Lucky you are!! The peculiarity is that the prices are very very cheap here. It costs $2.6 for student and $2.95 for the rest. So the prices are so reasonable. What we got here - red dragon fruit costs 60 cents. Papaya costs as well 60 cents. The same price for everyone. Melon, mango...What else?.. - What is that?.. - Persimmon. - Persimmon. All right. Do you know what's the most delicious dish here? I think it is pork. Is it spicy? - No, it is mild. The price is $2.20. And you should pay immediately. Will you eat here? - Yeap. Thanks God cause I already picked so many dishes. Look at it, it is Organic Drumstick Vegetable or Moringa Oleifera. It is non-spicy. Look, that's what Singapore students eat. And that's my choice for today. The choice of TV host. Again due to multi-racial popularity, you can find here dishes from different cuisines: Korean, Indian, Chinese, so that no one would be disappointed. You paid $4 for your lunch. That's really cheap for Singapore. - Right, that's not expensive. - Do you get any scholarship? - No, I don't get any. But those who gets it, their scholarship recovers 50% of tuition. And who makes payments for your studies? - Well, my parents do. - I got it. - Now tell me please about your days -off? -We do sports. - Are you joking? You do sports for fun)) - Right, that's a great way to have some fun. - And what about parties, drinks etc.? Have you ever tried it? As that's the way students in our country usually have fun and rest. Singapore has a vibrant nightlife. - And expensive one. - That's true. It is pretty much expensive. One should pay $15 for entrance in a club. And within one night you can spend even more than $100. Well the one won't hit the town each evening. But in the University canteen one can eat one's fill. At least it is cheap here. Well in Singapore, everything is as much clear, as it is confused. Recently there was a business center behind my back where many people used to work, then out of nowhere, appeared these two spiry buildings. After all business center stopped making progress. So the Government got its act together. So they asked Feng Shui professional for a consultation. Yeah, You hear it properly! So his suggestion was to build two other buildings with cells between that spiny buildings. Why cells? Because they involve bad energy. And everything felt into place. Actually the whole city is built according to Feng Shui rules. This is such a doctrine about the effect of energy on a person. And that's why there is so much fear of sharp corners. After all, according to Feng Shui, they provoke conflicts. For the sake of attracting wealth, they build a merry-go-round. It rotates clockwise. And carries the money energy out of water from the bay directly onto the business center of the city. The thing is that Feng Shui specialist is the most lucrative profession in Singapore. His salary starts from $1850 to infinity. When buying our apartments, my parents took a Feng Shui specialist's consultation. His recommendations were quite expensive for us, but I believe that they will take up a bill in future. I am afraid I've chosen a wrong occupation. But in case you wanna keep your love, wealth and health for ever, now let me tell you which elements of interior you should keep in your home. According to Feng Shui rules. First of all, it is water. Soft splashing fountain attracts well-being and harmony. Stone stands for financial stability. Wood bring peace. Special bells ringing into the wind attract luck. And don't forget about metal. Singaporeans believe that it stimulates mental activity. So accommodate some kind of metal gizmo in the house and choose the bigger, the better. Another very important tip from Feng Shui experts. Never sleep with your feet facing the door. That the luck won't leave you while your sleeping. That's why right now everybody whose feet were facing the doors, immediately change its position. And luck will be on your side! I felt tired while I told you everything! Now let's check the swimming pool. I hope it is made by the rules of Feng Shui. It is good, right? The interior according to Feng Shui rules, hotel luxury and comfort of Shangri-La Hotel, is appreciated not just by me. The Presidents of other countries always choose this very place for staying In case you wanna make it closer to the seashore and beaches, your best choice would be Shangri-La's Rasa Sentosa Resort and Spa. Awesome window view, swimming pool and Jacuzzi , kids club, six restaurants, will make your stay just perfect. That is Feng Shui ! Now you are talking! Now it's time to figure out how Singaporeans live. Though it can sound odd somehow, but it is pretty simple thing to buy an apartment in Singapore, one of the richest countries in the world. Most Singaporeans live in their own flats, not rented. It is all due Public housing in Singapore. Just imagine the way it should look like. Probably it should be a simple, plain and economy class, kind of apartment house, with small windows etc, right? You can be right, but it is not true speaking about Singapore. Just check the apartments for people with moderate or low means by Singaporean standards. Look at the territory here! This is a fifty-stored- building with a real green park on the roof. Here you can find benches, pieces of art, race track. Sometimes for morning run we should look for some park nearby, a stadium etc. and over here there is even no need to leave your block of apartments, the race track is perimeter-wise on the 24th floor . Shop till you drop. Even I would start running. Maybe.. Well it really looks fantastic! But now let's check the very apartments. This is Anita and Rem Pereira. They have two kids, and just recently they've purchased an apartment in this complex. Here you can see a bed room, a living room, a children's room and an open kitchen. The area of apartments is 60 sq. m. Window bars are on each window, but why? There are no thieves, it is for kids protection from falling out of the window. How did you manage to get this apartment? Well we filled a special application form as just the Government started sell flats here in this complex. At the moment it costed $295K. But our income was a little higher than we should have had , so we got refusal. And only within 5 years we managed to buy it. But it costed then $590 K. You should observe two conditions if you wanna but such type of apartments: 1st of all you should be older than 21, and 2nd of all, your month income should be less than $7400. In case you earn more, than there is no need for you to get a public housing. All right, then how much you pay for community facilities? Well, approximately it is $132 per month. And for living we usually spend $440 per month. Taking into account that Singapore is a country of restrictions and penalties, I could not but ask what is forbidden to do in your private apartments. So tell me please about your restrictions here? Probably you are not allowed to be noisy after 11 pm.. or make big parties..? So what is strictly forbidden? We are not allowed to smoke and drink. At home? Nope, only outside it is forbidden. Neither on the stairs, nor in the corridor. They say, that smoking will be as well prohibited at home. The law is under constructing right now. I think you are non-smokers that's why it doesn't bother you. You are right. And is that true, in case you are naked at home, and someone noticed you, than you should pay some penalty. It means that you can be naked, only if your curtains are closed. Yeah, it sounds strange, but that's true. Such occasion happened to our friend one day. He was naked at home, and someone called the police. Upon arrival, they asked my friend to put on some clothes. The reason is that the buildings are located so close to one another. And we can observe everything that going on in the opposite apartment. Well, maybe it is right, cause I will feel uncomfortable as well in this case. And it is not all the restrictions. Singapore is a tropical country. So when watering flowers, we make sure that the water does not spill anywhere. because if we get mosquito, whole street will suffer and we should pay penalty then. It's hard to believe, as such a simple thing as watering flowers, can provoke such consequences. We in our countries couldn't even think of that. And as for parenting. Are you punishing kids? Or trying to explain and talk? We are talking with them a lot, we never beat them. Were you punished in a childhood? Yeah, my daddy beat the hell out of me. In past times it was normal. But not now. So that's how an average Singaporean family live. And what really makes rich Singaporean to stand out between others is not his private apartment, but his own car. Do you have a car? Yes. Do you have one or..? - We have only one car. Even one car is very cool, as the cost of one car starts from $74 K. This price includes driving licence, which Singaporean usually buy at the auction. It costs up to $80 K. And you get it not durante vita, but for 10 years only. Besides one should pay transport tax, road tax and registration fees. It all comes to a fabulous amount for an average car. Singaporean Government tries to protect city from bad air and heavy traffic in the city. Singapore is one of the safest cities in the world. Although it’s almost impossible to meet a policeman on the street. Do you know why? Because there is no need in it. The web cams are all around the city. People are constantly being watched. Even right now they are watching me talking and gesticulating. There is almost no criminality in Singapore. Probably due to very strict punishments. Patrick Tan, judicial. We still have life sentences for premeditated murder and drug trafficking And the most interesting fact is that they still use wooden cane as a punishment only after the court's decision. That's the heritage of British Empire to use wooden canes in schools and prisons. Depending on the crime, the court announces the number of strokes. So to prevent yourself from punishment, you better never break the law here. If you don't observe any police officers in the streets, it doesn't mean that they aren't watching you. I am so much excited, as this is my first time in the police department. Look here is a reception, and that's the way these guys work. Everything is well-organized and very tidy here. People sit and wait for being called. Even more it looks like some government entity, neither than a police department. Let's see what's that over here. Nothing unusual here yet. Let's have some chat with a real police officer. They say, Singapore is a safety country, right? Denis Lim, a police officer. That's true. 90% of Singaporeans feel completely safe according to interrogations. Well, I have been communicating with so many people, and almost all of them said, that due to strict laws, they feel safe. - I feel safe here. That's for sure. Singapore is one of the safest cities in the world. I am happy that a bubble gum will never stuck towards my shoe. Sorry to say, I can't walk naked in my apartment. You've got web cameras all around, so in case someone hit me, you will rescue me, right - That's true.-That's amazing! Well, you seem to be so open-minded, smart and positive.. policeman.. Are all of the policemen same as you are? Probably you are right, but when catching a thief, we are so strict and not "cutie boys" at all. Police officer earns approximately $6 K per month. Public servants earns the highest salaries. The Minister's salary starts from $110 K to prevent corruption. For a bribe the official faces a fine of up to $100 K. And even 5 years of prison in some cases. Let me repeat that Singapore belongs to the most expernsive cities in the world. But the salaries are high enough . $3700 is considered to be a low salary. But there is almost no poor people, and a lot of rich ones. Even more, The number of millionaires per capita is the largest in the world. Every tenth resident is a real millionaire. There is a separate area in Singapore where rich people live. Let's say the truth. Only millionaires live here. This is millionaires area. They've got their own business centers, clubs, private kindergarten with swimming pools for dogs. The cost per day is $60. Why not? If the dogs of millionaires live like this, then how the very millionaires live. On this street people live at houses which are worthy fabulous money. Now I’ll visit one of these. A house that costs $ 11 million. Frankly speaking, I've never been to such house before. And I even cannot imagine the way it looks like. C'mmon! And let's see! Susie is my old friend. I can't wait to see her house. Hello! Susie Yeo, businesswoman. Hello Dear! How are you?Sorry lots of work. I missed you! That's why I am here! I knew you were missing me! I've never visited you before. That's why I wanna look around. You are welcome, Dear! Just walk around! And I will keep working! Millionaires never rest. They don't even have a spare minute for a friend. So let's go, I won't bother you. Susie has her own consulting agency. And media business. Couple times a year Susie travels to Maldives with her family. And that's the house she lives in. Do you think of the same things that I do? Her husband even doesn't have his private office. Hello. I thought that it is kids room, but Susie husband works here as well. -Hello! I'm Zhanna. Nice to meet you. As far as I understand, this is children's room. - Hello. What's your name? I am Daniel. This is Susie's daughter. This is a bedroom for two kids, an office for a daughter and a father. In the house which costs $11 mln.. Is it just me, or you think the same..? Ok, let's go and check the other rooms, probably we don't understand something here. Well, it is really odd, too simple and modest to live in such conditions not only for millionaires but also for ordinary people. There is no even minimal luxury in this house. I don't mean even luxurious chandeliers or gold toilets and 20 meter in length pool. I am really confused And I wanna figure out at least any luxurious detail which makes the cost of this house that fabulous. Because it is really hard to believe. I've already got so many questions, let's ask Susie now. If I visited a house that valued $ 11 million in my country, it would have looked completely different. Well, everything looks so simple and modest in your house. It looks like you don't care of it at all, despite it's really expensive. How come? Let me explain you. The cost of the land is very much expensive here, and $11 mln is not so much the price of a house as the price of land. Here people are used to rent their apartment for decades, but I managed to buy it so it will belong to my children and their children. I already have a couple of other houses, though this one is the oldest of them , but it's location is the closest to the school and city center. And I am too busy right now to repair it etc. I hope that within the next 5 years my children will manage to do it. That’s what accounts for! You remember me speaking about tiny childcare centers that have no bedrooms and private yards? That's all because the territory of Singapore is limited. There is no way for it to grow, but to build multi-stored buildings. So having your own piece of land is the height of luxury for a Singaporean. Tell me please, what is your monthly income? It is hard to say, but to maintain a house in this area, the one should earn at least $36700 per month. A gardeners expenses are $5900 per month. Is that true about tax credits in Singapore e.i. the more children you have, the less you pay? That's right. A taxpayer with a new baby may claim the child tax credit, which lowers their tax bill. That wasn't the reason for me to have multiple children. So you , as a mummy of 4 children, do not pay any taxes, right? No, I pay taxes, but the tax bill is very little. Do you punish your children? I do, because I this it is more effective, than just chat. Sometimes I hit where it hurts, sometimes I use hanger. But the older they become, the more we should talk and find common ground. Who is the leader in Singaporean family? In my home, I would say, that my husband is the boss. So he always tells what you should do, he can slam his fist, right? Well, I guess most Asian men are Powellite. They love to make final decisions in the home. And to have the final say on a matter. And I just keep my mouth shut . What about divorces? This is a hot-button issue for men. Women overcome it easier. One my acquaintance brought scores to life after a divorce. It is hard to pass through it for many people, and the Law is always on woman's side. Well, to sum it up, Singaporean millionaires spend big money on their houses, though you won't notice it sometimes. And the main thing is not to make a display of one's wealth, but just to have it. That is a regular morning routine of Singaporean seniors. I already feel pain in my muscles. Well, it is normal to belabour yourself with a stick. That's how Singaporean seniors start their day with the morning exercise. They use such a Chinese stick to disperse blood. And you feel great afterwards. Unique residential complexes are being built in Singapore. It looks like an average house, but only seniors are allowed to live here. You won't buy an apartment here in case you aren't a senior. On the territory of the complex, everything is done according to the needs of seniors. They've got here its own shops, cafes and even hospitals. When you start your day with a splendid sun outside with your friends and all your friends are here with you , - that's really inspiring. What's next? - Let's grab the necessary equipment and go on with working in the garden. That's how Singaporean seniors start their day with morning exercise, then they change the clothes and start working in the garden. It belongs to the complex as well. One can attend some special horticulture lessons. After waking up, you don't think of head ache etc, you don't start your day with routine, but it's all brisky and cheerful! <one old ma'am calling another> - Will you join me for the morning exercises today on the 7th floor? - Definitely, I will. And they get together, do the exercise, then work in the garden together being in a positive mood. The common work ennobles man. We know it all. Breakfast is served in the restaurant close to the garden. There is a separate block in this complex, where you can find any cafe, bar or restaurant to your taste. It is really fantastic, as the food is very tasty, and the prices are cheap. And it is a kind of tradition, they rarely cook by themselves, but mostly eat outside. That's really awesome!! Just imagine it all! So you can find everything you need in this complex. It is not necessary even to get out of it at all. In case, A Singaporean senior wants to walk and ride to the city center, Government takes care of him. When a man turned 62, He gets a special Greenlight card. And the green light of the traffic light lasts longer for the sake he manages to cross the road. Because it takes him longer now on to cross the road, if to compare with an average person. Same time this card is an urban-transport pass for all types of vehicles. A trifle, but nice.. That's the way a senior's flat looks within. This is uncle Hang. You never call older people grandfather or grandmother. You prefer to use auntie and uncle. So that's a standard room. Right now I am visiting uncle Hang and his wife. Well, it is an average place, very light and cozy. This apartments is 47 square meters. This is more than amazing for two seniors, I think. So it is an average place, the one thing which stands out and catches attention is this red electric SOS cord. In case one feels bad, loses conscious, or feels dizzy, or cannot move, you should just press upon it and listen what will happen next. Alarm system starts working all around the complex. All the neighbors get notification that someone feels sick. This signal send notifications both to the police department, and the hospital. which are located nearby. So help is provided any way and always. And this is so cool!! So the seniors are always in protection . It is just awesome! Uncle Hang, tell me please , how did you get this flat? I've sold my old one, and bought this. What retirement benefit do you get? Well we don't even any retirement benefits actually. All life long we lay aside money for the old age. So right now the Government pays us $1000 Singaporean per month. Plus some percentage of money for the sold apartment. So to sum it up we get approximately $2600. Is that considered enough for comfort living or not? What can you afford yourself on that sum of money? According to Singaporean standards, it is not big money, as teachers, doctors, public servants get much more. And once a year we travel. It is believed that in Singapore they got one of the highest retirement benefits in the world. They can even afford themselves travelling on their own savings. But what impressed me most is the fact that kindergartens are located in this complex as well. Grand-kids of the residents of this complex attend it, so the Government takes care of grandparents who can spend more time with their grandkids. As for me, being a Singaporean senior means truly enjoy your life. I came to the country with high penalties, strict restrictions and tough discipline, And frankly speaking, I supposed that people wouldn't be satisfied with it, and would be complaining, as there are always those who wants to change something. - But not Singaporeans! - I won't change anything! - I would change the weather! - Nothing! - Nothing! - Nothing! - I won't change anything! Sometimes it seems to many of us that others live better than we do, but the thing is that we should just appreciate and love our life! And sometimes, for interest, just peep at the life of others.
