Premier Li Keqiang Orders Vanilla Cappuccino in Zhongguancun, Drink Sells Out Within an Hour
May 08, 2015 By eChinacities.com

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang visited 3W cafe today in Zhongguancun, Beijing for a staff briefing and ordered a vanilla cappuccino. After he left the cafe, vanilla cappuccinos sold out within an hour. 3W barista Liu said that he was so nervous to serve the Premier that he made six cappuccinos before creating one worthy of Li.

Li had been in the area visiting Zhongguancun Venture Street. He said that foundation for the development of the tech industry is the development of talent. “People are the most valuable asset, investing in people is the greatest investment.”

It took seven attempts to make a decent cup of coffee? In America, if Obama visited a Starbucks it would only take one attempt, and it would be delicious. Seriously, 7 attempts?

"People are the most valuable asset, investing in people is the greatest investment.” With China this translates to, "mannnnn, you're teaching Einstein the theory of relativity! Can't you see China is filled with people investment gurus? Guanxi and bribery! Our track record, yield? Look at the foreign passports we own, the Mercedes on our streets, the shits we drop on laowailand, the debt laowais owe us, the mocking HAROOOOOEEEE we throw at laowais today! Initial capital outlay? We didn't even have decent toilet paper! We merely sank the '1 billion customers' and 'we're opening up our market to you' bait and the suckers fell for it! We may not be the best commodity investors but when it comes to people 'investing' which country on earth can top China?!!! Heck, commodity, people, same THING!!!"

So that is why so many Chinese people are dishonest. They are copying politicians.
