Ball’s in their court
HONG KONG: Thousands of Chinese women are vying to attend a lavish ball in Shenzhen, lured by the possibility of a fairytale match with a millionaire.
More than 7 000 women are applying for just 40 tickets to attend the ball, where several multi-millionaires will pay around $5 400 (R40 300) for the privilege of meeting them.
The ball will include a lavish banquet, accommodation at a luxury five-star hotel and a cruise.
Women will be screened for looks, physique and intellect, with counsellors judging whether they are “kind, gentle and tasteful”. – Reuters
