The power of Chinese money.
In China, the rich class, only 0.4% of the nation “a nation of 1.4 Billion”, gains about 70% of the national income. 0.4% is translated into about 5 million people and they like showing off their wealth.
“Personal assistant” in Chinese = Ho !
Chinese media billionaire pays $8 million to hire Japanese porn star Rola Misaki as his ‘personal assistant’ for 15 years. She is 22-year-old, half-Russian and half-Japanese.
She should ask for more money or go for short term “Rent“. Tiger Woods will pay that $8 million in a year, not 15 years.
What a Boss
We saw last week, the billionaire chief executive of the Chinese conglomerate Tiens has given 6,400 of his best salespeople a vacation that started in Paris and ended with a parade on France’s Cote d’Azur.
CEO Li Jinyuan said he was celebrating the company’s 20th anniversary by rewarding his staff and aimed for the world record in spelling out a phrase in human bodies on the coastal promenade in Nice. They dressed in identical sky blue hats and T-shirts, spelled out the words “Tiens’ dream is Nice in the Cote d’Azur.”
It didn’t take long, for Li Huisen, who runs Chinese herbal health product company Infinitus, to take his entire 12,700-strong workforce on a 6 day holiday to Thailand, Bangkok and Pattaya.
The huge party is the biggest organised travel group Thailand has ever hosted is divided into multiple groups and all employees will travel in Thailand in different stages between May 10 and 20. The entire company will be transported to Bangkok on 110 separate planes. This current tour will bring to Thailand 600 million Thai Baht, in tourism revenue.
Prime Minister Prayuth has issued an order on Friday under Section 44 of the interim charter suspending 45 senior officials, pending investigations into corruption allegations against them. Those suspended include 24 ministerial officials including Suwat Sithilor, permanent secretary for tourism and sports and Anuphap Kesornsuwan, director-general of the Department of Tourism. Corruption to the core, at all levels in Amazing Thailand, that’s a lot of money.
