 上海会所品茶微信Chen Zhenhua, head of the office’s information technology department, said Chinese seniors have an average eight ye

A pair of gloves and socks were all the betrothal gifts needed for a rural man in China to prepare for a marriage in the 198

0s, but the gifts in modern times have evolved into huge amounts of money, putting great pressure on rural families.

 上海会所品茶微信”I took my wife home by riding a bicycle on the day I got married,” said Shan Yi

nhe, a 55-year-old rural villager in Handan, in northern China’s Hebei province.

A marriage ritual in the country’s northern areas usually starts with the bri

degroom picking up the bride in the morning from her home and bringing her to his home, bo

th accompanied by families, relatives and friends. Then a wedding ceremony is held around noon. 上海会所品茶微信

Shan got married in 1988 in Nanduqi village in Feixiang district, about 400 kilometers southwest of Beijing.

Shan prepared a pair of brand-new gloves and socks for his bride’s family, wh 上海会所

ich were all he could manage but were enough for him to begin a happy marriage.

Three decades and two adult sons later, Shan began to feel stressed by the high cost of modern marriages.

 上海会所品茶微信At the end of 2017, his second son was about to marry his girlfriend, with whom he had been in a relations

hip for five years. Shan was gratified to see his son happy. But the happiness was accompanied by great pressure.

He needed to come up with a lot of money – 60,000 yuan ($8,722) as betrothal gifts for the bride’s family – to pay for his son’s wedding.

“It is local custom for the bridegroom’s family to give money to the bride’s family, but the

amount has been mounting in the past few years,” Shan said, adding that there is competition among villagers.

Although the amount was at a medium level compared with the cost of other marriages in Shan’s village – where some h

ave topped 150,000 yuan – the expense he bore was equal to about two years of his family’s total income.

Shan earns 2,000 yuan a month as an accountant at the government of Tiantaishan town, which covers his vil

lage. He and his family also grow crops on 0.7 hectares of land, which can yield about 5,000 yuan each year.

For many solo diners, the most trying times are Chinese festiv

Late last year, Pu Kunhong decided to conduct a test. On New Year’s Eve, the 21-year-o

ld visited a well-known hotpot chain on his own to see how people would react.

Inside the packed restaurant, diners sat around tables, dropping meat, fish

balls and vegetables into boiling cauldrons and chatting happily amid the rising steam.

Pu sat opposite a large stuffed teddy bear-placed at his table by the management to ac

Providing large stuffed toys as companions is just one wa

“The stuffed bear brought a sense of warmth and security, and I didn’t feel embarrassed eating on my own,” Pu said.

Luckin, a Starbucks rival in China, rises in US stock debut

Shares of Luckin Coffee, a fast-growing rival to Starbucks in China, rose 20 percent in their US stock market debut Friday.

The Chinese company, which opened its first store in Beijing less than two years ago, has 2,370

locations and plans to surpass the 3,700 stores Starbucks has in China by the end of the year.

But unlike Starbucks, Luckin is losing money.

It brought in $125 million in revenue last year, but spent much more than

that on coffee beans, store rent and other costs. Last year, it lost $475 million.

Most of Luckin’s stores are small, have few seats and are used mainly as a place to pick up mobile orders.

It also offers delivery in 30 minutes and promises a refund for delays or spilled drinks.
