Picture of the day: Doting Chinese parents shower daughter with money on birthday party
April 27 is the 12th birthday of Wang Yanyan, who lives in Linfen of central Shanxi province. On that day, Yanyan’s parents held a lavish banquet in the city’s high-class hotel and hired professional party planning company to arrange the celebration. In addition to the delicacies and the grandeur, another superlative was dozens of origamis made of high-denomination Chinese paper money that hung around Yanyan’s neck. The origamis’ face value is thousands of dollars, whereas her grandparents, uncles and aunts paid additional money for the painstaking professional labor to put them together. At the table, Yanyan’s classmates cast their envious eyes on the considerable amount of money and yearned for the coming of their own birthdays. (Picked from Sina)
