Man buys 5,000 people noodles for finding engagement ring





A Chinese businessman treated 5,000 people to a free bowl of noodles because he found his lost $45,000 engagement ring. The man's name is Mr Wang. He was going to ask his girlfriend to marry him last Sunday. However, he lost the engagement ring. He told reporters that he visited a noodle restaurant in the Chinese city of Chongqing and left the ring there in his bag. Mr Wang was very lucky because a customer in the restaurant found the bag and gave it to the manager. The manager found Mr Wang's contact details in the bag and telephoned him. Mr Wang was very happy to get the ring back. He then went to his girlfriend and proposed to her. She accepted his proposal.






Mr Wang proposed to his girlfriend and she accepted his proposal. He was very happy and wanted to say thank you to the restaurant. On Tuesday, he bought 5,000 bowls of spicy noodles for the customers of the restaurant. This is the average daily sales of the shop. There was a 100-metre-long queue outside the shop. Many people wanted a free bowl of noodles. Mr Wang told reporters: "Chongqing has the woman I love….I feel very honoured and happy." He also posted a thank-you letter outside the restaurant with a picture of his fiancée wearing the engagement ring. A local man said: "I think the story is really moving. Love is beautiful and people's hearts are more beautiful."
