WeChat Nightclub
WeChat Nightclub“WeChat Nightclub”. Young and affluent patrons at an exclusive bar (at Three On the Bund) in Shanghai engage in their favorite activity - using their mobile phones - often with one of WeChat’s many applications, instead of interacting with each other, which would have been more common just 10 years ago. I was delighted when this chap in full “I am Rich” regalia (Louis Vuitton literally from head-to-toe) walked right up to me - not seeing me at all as his eyes were locked onto his iPhone!

WeChat Breakfast
WeChat Breakfast“WeChat Breakfast”. A young man uses WeChat Pay to purchase his early morning breakfast from a roadside vendor in Shanghai, without having to get off his motorbike - China’s version of the American “Drive-In” restaurant!
