4 June 2013 / 3 years 4 months ago

A 25-year-old Chinese entrepreneur who specialises in immigrant investments in Singapore spent more than $8,000 on 50 bottles of Remy Martin Club in one night and won the opportunity to kiss model-actress Gan Lu Lu. According to an article in The New Paper, Mr Eric Xu has been working here for seven years and said he did not feel the pinch in splurging close to a five-digit sum on drinks.Xu said: “It was very worth it because Gan Lu Lu is quite well-known back in China. But I probably would not date her in real life because she is a celebrity and we will not have any privacy together at all."Mr Xu was one of the 500 people who turned up at Club Lava in Chijmes to see the sexy 27-year-old Chinese model in person. She was here for the club’s opening night on Saturday.Club Lava paid Lu Lu $40,000 for the appearance. The nightspot plays mainly Top 40s commercial hits, and targets affluent working adults in their 20s and 30s.The highest spender in the club that night would have the chance to kiss Lu Lu on the lips on stage for 10 seconds.So when Mr Xu was chosen, he accepted the challenge and took the initiative by hugging Lu Lu’s waist and then holding her face before leaning in for a kiss. Lu Lu, however, looked shy and pulled back after a mere five seconds.On the challenge, the, media-savvy Chinese model said in fluent Mandarin: “I’ve never done something like this back home in China. Perhaps the people in Singapore are more open-minded. It was good as long as everyone had a happy time playing the games.‘She added: “I saw a handful of handsome guys in the crowd today. They are quite well-dressed and good-looking!‘Even though Lu Lu, who is currently single, did not find a suitor from her appearance at the club, she had indicated earlier that she does not mind dating a Singaporean guy and eventually marrying him.She said before the event started: “If I get to marry a Singaporean and can become a Singaporean citizen, it would be like I struck the lottery! I would keep my eyes open for any great guys who come my way.‘View photos in the gallery for snapshots of Gan Lu Lu at Club Lava, as well as other related photos.
