Surprising deliveries to look forward to after Singles' Day

Yang, in her late 20s, is now a well-known figure on the local nightclub scene, turning up in her pink Mercedes to personally deliver food to her wealthy clientele.

The young woman used to work at nightclubs herself until she started her own career in 2013, having found an odd niche in the food industry.

Through her rich connections and wealthy former boyfriends she met while both working and partying from club to club in her native Changsha, the capital of central China's Hunan province, Yang found customers for her takeaway food business.

Despite being able to afford six more staff members, she personally drives the hot pink car around to her clients to deliver the meals, which can earn her upwards of 150,000 yuan per month.

Part of the large income is down to the pricing of the meals: 188 yuan for a portion of take-away noodles - a price her clients are willing to pay to have the food delivered to them in person.

She said that there is no doubt it is her good looks and good communication skills that have allowed her to be so successful, but added everybody had to use the skills and abilities they have in order to achieve success.
