Golden Toilet Update: Tycoon Died!

About two months back I posted (original post) about Lam Sai-wing, a Hong Kong tycoon who built an amazing business and was a marketing genius, making and publicly displaying a toilet made of gold.

I just found out that Lam Sai-wing died at the age of 53. Our thoughts are with his family, employees, and friends. From Malaysia:

The 53-year-old Lam was found dead in his luxury apartment in Bowen Road on Friday.

Lam started his gold empire as a craftsman 30-years ago and rose to become the chairman of the RM530mil Hang Fung Gold Technology Group.

His US$50mil (RM171.8mil) house, known as Gold Palace, is filled with items made of gold.

The restroom that he designed is said to be worth HK$90mil (RM39.77mil) now.
