& # 39; Sometimes they want things they can't get if they have so much money, so they call us to let them really enjoy their wealth, & # 39; Karim said to Kyle and Jackie O.
& # 39; We are building a strong global connection to be able to use it for our customers who have the money but don't have access. & # 39;
But with ridiculous requests come the benefits, including an all-cost paid for overseas travel with the customer, a $ 25,000 tip and getting free custom-made suits designed and made exclusively for him.
& # 39; I can't ask for more, especially for an experience that I want to experience myself & # 39 ;, said the director of The VIP Sydney.

Karim said they were recently asked to close the Sydney Harbor Bridge for a private dining experience.
& # 39; We are not saying & # 39; no & # 39; in our kind of business, & # 39; said Karim.
& # 39; But not long ago we were asked to close the Sydney Harbor Bridge, set up a dining table in the middle of the highway and also hang a crystal chandelier.
& # 39; So those who lived in North Shore could not come home on time. They wanted this request for themselves … Once you have that much (money), the only thing you want is something you can't have. & # 39;
The self-proclaimed VIP & # 39; fixer & # 39; said the customer wanted the dinner to start from 7 p.m., meaning that he would have had to close the bridge all afternoon to set up.
& # 39; We didn't think it was a good idea, but we presented them with a better option & he said.

Karim said they offered to give an extravagant party for only 25 to 30 people, which cost the customer only $ 300,000 for two hours.
& # 39; We have set up a great tent, we had the beautiful carpet floor, super yacht, private fireworks and performances, & # 39; he said.
About the & # 39; crazy rich Asians & # 39; said, Karim said they have a pretty great taste that I have to admit.
& # 39; For Asian culture … they are just like Las Vegas. They live in China and they come here (Sydney) to play, and we are here to help & he said.
Karim plays an important role in keeping his customers happy all the time, so he is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
& # 39; That is one of the disadvantages of business, I can never switch off my phone. When I am traveling or on an airplane, I have it redirected to someone else, "he said.
