Chinese Man Treats 5,000 People To Free Noodle Soup After Restaurant Returns His Lost US$45,000 Diamond Ring
The proverb ‘Honesty is the Best Policy’ came out to be true for a noodle shop that returned a lost bag to a Chinese businessman. The Chinese businessman paid for 5,000 bowls of spicy noodles for passers-by after recovering his lost engagement ring. The Chinese businessman lost his bag in the southwestern city of Chongqing in China. The man identified only by the surname Wang wanted to surprise his girlfriend with a marriage proposal on their one-year anniversary. According to Chongqing Morning Post, the man had spent the morning of August 13 making preparations for the proposal and making arrangements for the engagement. While he was having lunch, he left his seat to pick up his girlfriend’s call, keeping under cover lest she spots him. However, when he returned he found that his bag was gone that contained the three-carat diamond ring worth 300,000 yuan (US $44,900; £35,000).

However, fortunately for Mr.Wang a local resident had picked up the bag finding the table empty and handed it to the restaurant manager Yue Xiaohua. The restaurant manager later handed the bag to Mr. Wang. Mr Wang who was very happy on receiving the bag back “unexpectedly” returned the next day to the shop and asked for what is the sale per day of the restaurant. Yue Xiaohua reportedly told the Chongqing Morning Post, “He asked us how many bowls of spicy noodles we sell in a day, and then gave me 35,000 yuan (US $5,200; £4,000), which is 5,000 bowls, saying ‘please invite everyone to eat for free for the day’.” Women Gets Discounts According To Their Bra Size At This Chinese Restaurant!
South China Morning Post reported that Mr Wang also gave a “thank you” letter to the shop confirming the news that his girlfriend accepted his marriage proposal. The letter read, “Chongqing has the woman I love, and so many nice people, I feel very honoured and happy.” On Tuesday, as the news spread of the free meal, people formed a 100-meter queue outside the shop for the free sour and spicy noodles.
