It’s that time of year again, Spring Festival, when Chinese companies celebrate their “nianhui” (年会, end of the year party) and offer the long-awaited bonuses (红包, red envelope) to their hard-working employees. The Orient Daily reports that a confidential list of the year-end prizes for top performing employees of major tech companies such as Xiaomi, Alibaba, Sina, titled “Web Companies Annual Meeting Gift List 2015 (Confidential)” has been leaked on social media.
Beijing-based company Qihoo 360, which specializes in internet security, is getting the most attention from netizens for its “Special Grad Awards” of which, the top prize for the model employee being a night with buxom Japanese AV star “JULIA”. Other prizes include a Porche 911 and a trip for two to Bali, Indonesia.
Known only by her English first name JULIA (京香じゅりあ), the chesty 27-year old AV actress has achieved something of rock star status in China for her roles in epic films such as Breast Milk Slaves, Busty House Keeper, Temptation of a Buxom Teacher, and J-Cup Super Boobs. The fact that online pornography is officially banned in China doesn’t seem to slow her legions of fans from swelling in number.
This top prize has not been confirmed by Qihoo, but none of the companies mentioned in the list, including Qihoo, have vehemently denied the awards either. Another internet leak listed the Porche 911 as the actual top prize. Last year, another tech company was rumored to have offered “the Lin Chi-ling of AV,” Yui Hatano, as the company dinner prize. This just goes to show that being a super, pencil-necked geek can sometimes pay off in the end as the rest of us regret not taking that program logic course at York Technical College.
