Joint Spending Popular Among Young Adults

"One person can't pay for all spending, so another one is needed to share it," Hangzhou citizen Mr. Wang said. Just like what he said, joint spending has become quite popular among young adults in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.

Recently, our reporter saw such a notice on the announcement board of Zhejiang University: "I'm a gentleman, and I'd like to now invite a pretty young lady to have dinner with me share the expenses this Saturday night." A Zhejiang University student Chen told China News Service that she really admired such originality, and she was willing to have dinner with him.

In fact, this man was not the originator of such activities. "Table delicacies team" has now become the rage in Hangzhou, whereby people get together through different ways, eat with great relish, and pay the bill separately.

UME International Cimeplex. Co. has kicked off preferential activities these days. Its staff member Ms. Fu said every Wednesday, if a man bought a film ticket with full price, he could bring another woman to watch the film free of charge. "Such kind of activity attracts many people. Every Wednesday I can see several lovers or couples coming to our cinema hand in hand."

Young white collars enjoy singing in KTV loges, relaxing their nerves and meeting new friends. They also pay the bill separately there. A small KTV room can thus demonstrate its maximal entertaining value: recreation at less cost.
