The Rich Man's Life - Chapter 25
During the past two days, Zhang Mengmeng was searching for a job online, while forking out some time to go to the dormitory to pack up some things.
“Hah… finally done, now you’ll have all the space for yourself, even if you get a boyfriend and bring him here, there won’t be any problem. Hehehe…”
Zhou Qianru covered her face with an embarrassed smile and scolded: “How could you become such a dirty-minded girl, even your sister wouldn’t dare to make a joke like that, did Ma Dong teach you that…”
“How could he… Ma Dong is a nice person …”
Zhou Qianru dragged her aside and earnestly taught her, “Let me enlighten you, little girl. In the future, it will take two more eyes to monitor him, men are dirty pigs who can’t change their behavior, especially rich men like Ma Dong. You must be careful! If you let any fox get close to him, you will get hurt … “
Zhang Mengmeng was shocked: “No, you’ve got the wrong idea about men, no wonder you…”
Zhou Qianru knew what she wanted to say when she heard her. The most annoying thing was to be reminded of this by a woman who is ahead of you in a relationship. She grinded her teeth in annoyance and said: “Ah you damned girl! You think you’re something now that you have a man huh! Is it because he satisfies you, that you dare to shun me, watch this…”
“Ah, I was wrong …”
The two were fighting, when they suddenly heard a knock on the door. Zhang Mengmeng sorted out her clothes and opened the door. It was a bit strange to see the person who was only an acquaintance, that was Chen Ting. They both were in the same internship session, they both worked at NetEase News Studio before. But the relationship between the two was average, there wasn’t much of an interaction.
“Oh, it’s Chen Ting. Are you looking for me?”
Looking at Zhang Mengmeng, Chen Ting’s expression was a bit unnatural, but still unable to resist the temptation of a promotion, she pretended to be kind and said: “Mengmeng, are you moving out?”
Chen Ting was a little embarrassed standing there, as they were not very familiar with each other. She really didn’t know what to say. She could only follow Wei Xiong’s orders and say indignantly: “Oh, are you searching for a job now? The editor-in-chief is so unreasonable, how could he blame all the things on you… “
Sure enough, women love scolding people behind their backs, and all women share this trait. As a strong woman in the workplace, what Zhou Qianru hated the most was a man who finds some weak woman to put all the blame on, like Wei Xiong. “Yes, this kind of man should be taught a lesson. If I ever meet him, I will castrate him!”
Editor-in-Chief Wei was reviewing some manuscripts, when he suddenly felt his crotch turn cold, he was terrified. “It’s really weird, is it because I went overboard last night? But those forty women were amazing, like a wolf… ” [TLN: Holy..]
When he thought of how he went crazy with the MILFs of the company last night, Wei Xiong only felt soreness in his old waist. His little brother still felt a little numb. “It seems that in the next few days, I won’t be able to get it up…”
Seeing Zhang Mengmeng stuffing her luggage into the trunk and sitting in the back of Mercedes-Benz waving her hand towards them, the envy and jealousy in Chen Ting’s eyes were no longer concealed.
“People who don’t care for themselves, apparently get destroyed, and you can’t help but take some cheap advantage…”
After waiting for a few minutes by the roadside, Chen Ting stopped a taxi, “Mister, head to China Resources Triumphal Arch in Binhu.”
The meal with Zhu Xiaotian at Shangpin Roasted Duck Restaurant impressed Ma Dong. So in the evening, he invited his old senior Zhang Wenyan to try some special roasted duck there.
Looking at the empty box, Zhang Wenyan wondered: “Xiao Dong, will there be anyone else joining us?”
Ma Dong smiled and shook his head. “No, no one. I’ve specially reserved it for us.”
That was strange, but Zhang Wenyan didn’t ask anymore. Anyways, there was plenty of space and time. After a while, a waiter brought the dishes along with the roasted duck.
“Oh, it’s good, it’s the first time that I’ve had such an authentic roasted duck in so many years in Luzhou!”
To receive the praise of the director of the provincial government research office, one could see that the roasted duck was very powerful!
Zhang Wenyan said while eating the roasted duck: “This meal isn’t cheap? Is there something good going on?”
Naturally, he couldn’t talk about the jackpot.
Ma Dong said calmly: “I got promoted to the post of Deputy Director a few days ago, a small step.”
Zhang Wenyan raised his eyebrows, smiled, and congratulated him: “That’s good, you became the deputy director of the marketing department at such a young age, your future is boundless.”
Ma Dong shook his head with a smile and pretended to be helpless: “I wish, but CCB is an old state-owned bank. If one wants to go further, one must have excellent connections or special opportunities. Otherwise, one could only spend time as a senior.
Moreover, the income of our CCB is still too low compared to joint-stock banks. I know that I won’t have many opportunities in the future, so now I can only think about investing in some small businesses… “
Zhang Wenyan did not comment on the state-owned banking system and salary issues. Instead, he heard Ma Dong speak about investing in some businesses, which aroused his interest.
Zhang Wenyan looked at Ma Dong with a smile and said: “So I guess this meetup isn’t just for the meal, I guess I’ll have to show how the things are done …”
Ma Dong smiled, he wasn’t embarrassed at all. Both of them have known each other for several years. He knew Zhang Wenyan’s character very well, and he wasn’t sulky!
Sulky was to say that he usually writes more and speaks less.
Zhang Wenyan thought for a while and then asked: “All of this depends on your financial strength. Large money has large money investment areas, and small money has small money investment areas. The channels for making money are very different.”
Ma Dong hesitated, but soon realized that he was thinking too much, and said generously: “The capital is not small, and I want to make a big investment.”
Zhang Wenyan was silent for a while, obviously, he didn’t believe Ma Dong to come up with such a large capital. Just as Ma Dong knew him, he also knew a lot about Ma Dong too. He knew about the accidents that happened in the Ma family.
With a lot of thoughts in mind, Zhang Wenyan said casually: “Banks are state-owned enterprises, after all, some things can’t be done, some things should be done less, and they can’t patronize the interests in front of them.”
Ma Dong was helpless, but could only show his helplessness in his heart. There was no way he could talk about him winning the jackpot. So, he could only nod his head and say in a dull voice: “I can understand what the senior said, my money came from clear channels, absolutely nothing illegal. “
Zhang Wenyan frowned slightly, but he didn’t mention this anymore. As an old senior, he had already done what he should do, and if he asked again, it would be going overboard.
After eating two more dishes, Zhang Wenyan said: “I will not talk about the development of the world economy. It is too far away from us. Let me first talk about the situation in our country. Although the 2008 economic stimulus plan has stopped the decline of the GDP, the hidden dangers after overdraft have already emerged. You should have felt the inflation now? “
Ma Dong nodded in agreement. In the past, a bowl of beef vermicelli casserole was only five yuan, but now it has risen to eight yuan, and the weight has become less …
“Speaking of which, let me talk about the views on the real estate industry. With the national construction and monetary easing policies continuing, the future trend of real estate is bound to continue to rise! You may not feel it now in Luzhou. That’s because a lot of money has flowed to first-tier cities for the past two years, and second-tier cities have been temporarily disregarded. You can ask your classmates who work in the Big City to see how far the house prices have risen.”
This was the typical real estate appreciation theory. Ma Dong did not refute it, because people who work in banks basically have this idea. It can be seen from the fact that more than 90% of bank loans are mortgaged with real estate…
After some consideration, Ma Dong asked: “I also agree with the appreciation of real estate investment, but the key is what type of real estate to invest in and that is where I have no clue. The senior can help me by giving some pointers…”
“I’m not familiar with other places. Let me talk about the views of Huizhou and Luzhou real estate. Our Huizhou province currently says that it is not an exaggeration to build Daluzhou with the strength of the whole province. With great traffic and great construction, the real estate market in Luzhou is surely the place with the greatest potential in Huizhou Province. “
Ma Dong was in Luzhou and naturally knew the state of Luzhou in Huizhou Province, but Luzhou is so big. If he buys a house over the net, he can’t even throw in a splash with just a little more than one hundred million…
“Senior, can we just be straightforward with each other, just say where do you think the investment potential is the most, I will buy where you say it is the biggest…”
Zhang Wenyan smiled inexplicably: “Huizhou has seen a lot of big leaders. Now the leaders above, as well as the leaders of the provinces and municipalities, all hope for the development of Luzhou, and all the hope is pinned on Binhu and the high-speed rail. The station is also under construction. When the subway line is built in the future, the entire Luzhou will be connected, and it is inevitable that the XC area will eventually replace the LC area … “
In the end, Zhang Wenyan said casually, “The railway is the hub of the city, and no main bus station can bypass the railway.”
Ma Dong thoughtfully thought of it, and quickly served another piece of crispy roast duck to the senior.
The two chatted a lot, from the traditional economy to the new economy, from the entity to the Internet, combined with some recently consulted books and materials, and many things that were chaotic were now suddenly bright.
In summary, the traditional economy was mainly clothing, food, housing, and transportation, and the new economy was mainly the use of Internet technology.
Regarding the current domestic Internet model, Zhang Wenyan did not agree with the current model, saying: “The current Internet is too fictitious, the bubble is very complicated, and the real economy is too heavy. In our opinion, there are many people who in the future Internet will be aggravated. The real economy is bound to move closer to the Internet, but how to integrate this is the biggest problem.”
Finally, Zhang Wenyan gave Ma Dong a systematic suggestion: “If you want to invest in Internet companies, I personally suggest that you choose oligarch bat, which is definitely a winner-take-all area. With bats now occupying the traffic gates from the three biggest areas of search, consumption, and social networking, other companies can only drink some soup in the cracks… “
“If you want to invest in an investment entity, I suggest you look for some solid corporate investment around food and banking.
If you want to do something for yourself, you must remember to do what you know best!”
After talking about business, Ma Dong asked for other things.
“There is someone I know. I will give you the contact information. Her name is Wang Yiwen and she is also an alumnus of our National People’s Congress.”
It’s a mixed system. Sure enough, there are more acquaintances in all aspects. Ma Dong thanked him.
Zhang Wenyan smiled and shook his head, “Supporting Xiaowei is the government policy guidance of this year. It’s a win-win situation. In fact, there is no need to find a relationship at all. Just come to the door and make the things clear… “
Ma Dong said helplessly: “I don’t have much contact with government agencies, I always feel uneasy when I hear all kinds of rumors!”
After Zhang Wenyan heard him, he didn’t say anything for a while, this is the current situation the government has to face!
The prejudice that has accumulated over a long period of time cannot really be washed away overnight.
Thinking of how Zhang Wenyan has been in Luzhou for so many years, his connections must be very broad. Ma Dong was long thinking about asking for Zhang Mengmeng’s job, on the principle that the situation is suitable, now was his chance. ”Thinking about the media, I have a friend who is looking for a news reporter’s job. “
Zhang Wenyan almost vomited blood, and it turned out that there was no free meal. Feeling that Ma Dong came prepared with a bunch of problems and wanted to solve all of them at once!
Putting the chopsticks on the table and wiping his lips, and licking his hands, he laughed happily: “Old Senior, it’s the last thing, I guarantee this is the last one, that’s it! There isn’t anything I can do about it? It won’t make a difference if you don’t get it done… “
Zhang Wenyan sat back in his seat satisfied and smiled smugly: “It’s the same, so many things have been solved there isn’t any problem … Is this friend your girlfriend? “
“Well,” Ma Dong nodded and admitted, but he suffocated at the thought of Zhang Mengmeng. “She used to work at NetEase but she lost her job for my reasons.”
Zhang Wenyan knew that it was his private affair, so he didn’t ask in detail. After thinking about his own connections in this regard, he said: “The person in charge of the Huizhou branch of Tencent News has a good relationship with me. I will help you to ask if they can recruit anyone…”
