The Wealth of Love


We spotted this Maserati in the parking lot of the International Finance Centre.

What caught our eye was the license plate: IOU.

Then my uncle told me that he recently read in the newspaper that this particular plate was auctioned off for some HK$800,000 (US$103,183).

A father-in-law bought the car and plate for his daughter-in-law for giving him a granddaughter.

And you thought the reward of motherhood was unconditional love.

this is another show of wealth and arrogance of hongkong's rich . in addition to a wedding in australia, a sumptuous baby banquet this shows how precious this baby is to the grandfather who makes billions in a year.
