From NetEase & MSN YNet:

Internet exposes “military uniform women” at airport traveling with luxury brand bags

December 31st, Hua Shang Net ( netizen “大盈若冲” posted about running into two women wearing military uniforms at a Shenzhen airport, and being rendered speechless by how they were accessorized: two shoulder bags/purses, a Burberry and LV [Louis Vuitton] respectively, the luggage on the floor all in LV branded luggage bags and suitcases, and the black paper bag at the bottom left corner of the photo is a newly purchased Gucci. Finally, the netizen also intentionally took a look at the  sleeve badges on the two women, with the sleeve badge on the left woman reading “XX Military District”.

Attentive netizens calculated how much all of the items in the picture cost: Large LV luggage bag/each = 58,500 yuan, 5 * 58,500 = 292,500 yuan, small LV bag/each = 26,000 yuan, 2 * 26,000 = 52,000 yuan, and not including the rolling suitcase and other items, the total: 344,500 yuan [~52,197 USD].

网易江苏省盐城市网友 [一声叹气]:

You can use your toe and still figure out how they got those things, haha!

网易河南省焦作市网友 [蹲房檐上拉屎]:

A lousy bag and you guys are all excited. They can open their legs and a Q7 falls into their hands, so a bag is nothing.

网易吉林省吉林市网友 [lwc1010]: (responding to above commenter)

Not necessarily a Q7, could be an X5.


It’s fine, military people have the right to pursue luxury too, are they and their families not allowed to have money/be rich? Although, next time they should wear civilian clothes when they go out, [because] uniforms are more eye-catching.

网易广东省深圳市网友 [pxzxf]:

The guns they’ve grasped would scare you to death!


Human flesh search, get an explanation!


NND, so the annual military budget has all been spent by these women buying BB [包包, bao bao, bags/purses]!


It can be seen from their uniform, hairstyle, and badges that these are performing arts soldiers…


1. Are they really soldiers? 2. Are the bags real? 3. Is the money legit?
First, I think that regardless of whether or not they are soldiers, there are no regulations that soldiers cannot use famous brands. Second, with China’s knock-off industry so advanced, I bet even if we put the bag in front of your eyes, you wouldn’t be able to tell for certain if it was real or fake. Finally, regarding how they got the money, even if normal soldiers can’t afford such expensive luxuries, is them or their families being rich something for you guys to be so bored as to be ball achingly nosy about?


On average, the salary for people in the military is far higher than those of public servants/government officials.


1. I have no faith in this kind of military! 2. I am frightened by this kind of phenomenon! 3. I feel sickened by this kind of result! 4. I am speechless towards the leader that has this kind of subordinate!


They’re serving in the military, you bunch of bastards, what qualifications do you have to comment? You guys think being in the military is playing every day?! Without those in the military, what would you guys depend on to live and enjoy life? A bunch of lowly cunts, seeing others living well and you guys have to fucking comment! Bunch of stupid cunts!

网易广东省中山市网友 [少管闲事1]: (responding to above commenter)

Hey, I haven’t seen those serving in the military take back the South China Seas. America. Korea. Japan. If they were to attack, you wouldn’t even dare let out a fart. Bullshitting motherfucker.

网易新疆乌鲁木齐市网友 [bai_jie506]: (also responding to above)

You motherfucker, without us rabble [normal civilians], what would you dogs eat and drink, and you’re talking about us not be able to have pleasant lives [without the military]?

网易广东省网友: (also responding to above)

With this kind of character, what kind of defense can you talk about? The military produces two kinds of people. One is the talented person. The other is the mentally unbalanced, who feels that after serving in the military for several years they haven’t gotten anything, so they lash out!

网易广东省广州市网友 [某人0277]: (also responding to above)

They’re just military whores that’s all, calm down~

网易北京市网友 [tiger720]: (also responding to above)

First commenter [referring to 网易辽宁省手机网友 above], aren’t those in the military supposed to watch their bearing and appearance? The article also said very clearly that whether or not you have money is your business but if you wear the military uniform out and your behavior and appearance is unbecoming of a soldier, then you are in the wrong. Stop losing face for those in the military.

网易北京市网友: (also responding to above)

First commenter, the ordinary common people are taxpayers who are supporting them for what reason? Which one of their expenses isn’t paid for with taxpayer money? We pay money so that they can protect us, otherwise wouldn’t it be better for us just to raise pigs and have meat to eat?

网易河南省信阳市网友 [中国贪污腐败]: (still responding to above)

First commenter, you think you’re niubi just because you serve in the army, but I’ve never seen you fucking in any war fighting for the country, and who knows if you’d even have the courage to go to war. You’re just a bastard soldier who only knows how to bully the ordinary common people.

网易广东省广州市网友: (last one responding to above)

I daresay: If there were a war between China and America right now, not a single person in the military would voluntarily go onto the battlefield!!! The ordinary common people supporting them is just to give themselves some face [so Chinese people can say they have a military]!!! As long as everyone stays calm [as long as there is no war], everything will be okay!!!

What do you think? Real or fake?

No Louis Vuitton? Personals @ chinaSMACK.
