There are some really rich people in Hong Kong, that we cannot deny, but “ case of burgundy for $232,00” was bought at a Sotheby’s auction by a HK collector.[1]

'We will sell more wine in Hong Kong this year than we will in New York and London combined,’ said Robert Sleigh, Sotheby’s head of wine for Asia.

In other news, a landmark ruling in HK orders divorced couples to split assets 50/50. However, in the article, is did mention that it will based on how long the couple are married, otherwise we can all assume money hungry men/women getting married to the super-rich and then get a divorce just so they can get their grubby hands on their assets.[2]
