Extremely rich parents can give their children things that normal salary-earning people cannot, but some Chinese "tuhao", meaning nouveau riche, are takings things to a much higher level.

Recently, a set of photos went viral, showing how the parents of a young girl in Wuhan had installed a temporary kitchen near their daughter’s school so that the girl could be fed her favorite dishes during her lunch break.

The person who uploaded the photos to social media commented that the incident shows how the rich are far removed from the realities confronting ordinary citizens in China.

In the photos, there is a woman, apparently a domestic helper, cooking beside a parked Mercedes-Benz vehicle outside the school premises.

Besides a cooking range, there is also an electric oven on a nearby table along with several bowls and seasonings.

When questioned, the maid said she was preparing a meal for her employer’s child.

A policeman tried to move her on, but the woman was persistent in finishing her cooking.

According to some pictures posted online, the woman managed to let her employer’s child relax in the luxury vehicle equipped with a TV and a bed.
