Scholar's Advanced Technological System Chapter 955
At the revolving restaurant on the top floor.
With a waitress following them, two people walked into the restaurant and sat down by the window.
After being at the summit all day, Lu Zhou was starving. He stood up and immediately went to the buffet area.
The food here was quite good for a buffet. It wasn’t as good as five-star hotels, but it was decent.
The only thing that Lu Zhou disliked was that the drinks here were charged separately, and the only free drink was water.
The hell is this?
Are they afraid of guests drinking too much and puking in the toilets?
Even though Lu Zhou didn’t really care about the money, this still triggered him a little.
After grabbing his food, Lu Zhou walked through the crowd and sat back down. He began shoving his mouth with rice as he looked at the Shanghai skyline.
After chewing for a while, he gave this restaurant an evaluation.
“Ten out of ten for views, four out of ten for food.”
Chen Yushan looked at Lu Zhou’s serious face and smiled.
“We’re here for the view, not the food. It’s about the ambiance.”
She gently spooned a bite of ice cream into her mouth. Her eyes suddenly lit up when she tasted the sweetness.
“Wow! The ice cream here is amazing!”
Lu Zhou looked at the ice cream and said, “It’s just normal ice cream.”
He noticed the ice cream when he was getting his food. It didn’t look particularly desirable. He even wondered if the restaurant wanted the guests to melt the ice cream and use that as a drink since the restaurant was too cheap to offer real drinks
Chen Yushan pouted and disagreed.
“No! It’s great, do you want some? I’ll feed it to you.”
Before Lu Zhou could react, a plastic spoon flew into his mouth
Honestly speaking, the sweet and cold sensation in his mouth felt pretty good, but he was too shocked to appreciate the taste
Chen Yushan mischievously smiled and said, “How is it? It’s great, right?”
Lu Zhou covered his mouth and looked to be in pain as he said, “You stabbed my teeth.”
“Oh, sorry I’ll rub it for you.”
Chen Yushan was about to reach over, but Lu Zhou quickly stopped her.
“No, no, it’s fine.”
Even though his tooth was slightly aching, that didn’t affect Lu Zhou’s dining experience. His mouth felt a little painful at first, but he soon felt better.
Watching the night view outside while eating was quite enjoyable.
When Lu Zhou was halfway done with his meal, he still felt bitter about this buffet not serving drinks.
“The food here is average, it just went from a four to a three.”
Seeing how Lu Zhou was still being serious, Chen Yushan said, “Okay, okay, stop talking about the food, this is just a tourist attraction Speaking of which, why are you only eating the fried rice?”
“I’m not, I always eat fried rice at buffets.” Lu Zhou began to talk about his buffet research findings. “Ok, basically, if a buffet has good fried rice, it is a good buffet.”
Chen Yushan said, “What kind of logic is that?”
“It’s science, it’s like that saying, ‘you’re only as good as your worst work’, and fried rice is usually the worst dish The food here isn’t as good as Xinrui or Sheraton.”
“Xinrui?” Chen Yushan blinked and said, “When did you go to Xinrui? I’ve never heard you talk about it.”
Lu Zhou wiped his mouth with a napkin and said, “Oh yeah, I went there yesterday for this macroeconomics conference.”
Chen Yushan’s eyes widened as she asked, “You’re doing research in economics?”
Lu Zhou: “Actually, I’m not doing research, Xiao Tong is. She just needs some help in mathematics.”
But then again, isn’t Krugman supposed to help Xiao Tong himself?
Whatever, it only took me a couple of hours anyway.
“Oh, Xiao Tong” Chen Yushan looked outside the window and said, “I wonder if she’s doing well in Princeton. It’s quite lonely there.”
Lu Zhou said, “She’s doing great, she’s like me, able to thrive in any environment. She’s not that kind of spoiled basic girl.”
Chen Yushan smiled and said, “Oh I thought that with a brother like you, she would be quite spoiled by you.”
Lu Zhou sighed and said, “She used to be. I used to pick her up in the rain, but now, she’s all grown up”
“Does that make you sad?”
“Not really, just nostalgic.”
Lu Zhou suddenly remembered something, so he spoke.
“Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you, I went to watch the startup pitches this afternoon. I saw a pretty good project, so I invested in it.”
Chen Yushan: “What project?”
Lu Zhou: “It’s called Beep Beep Charging, it does electric vehicle charging stations.”
“Pft” Chen Yushan couldn’t help but chuckle. “What kind of name is that?”
“It’s supposed to be a wireless charging station, you know what this means, right?”
“Sounds interesting, how much did you invest?”
“It was just an angel round, not much, just 10 million.”
“Not much” Chen Yushan sighed and said, “Next time, at least tell me before you make a big investment.”
Big investment? How is this big?
Lu Zhou was confused.
Chen Yushan sighed and said, “Regardless of how well Star Sky Technology is doing, 10 million is still quite a big number. We’re a business, not a charity. How do you know they’re not going to waste your money?”
Lu Zhou: “Don’t worry, the kid looked quite reliable.”
Chen Yushan sighed and said, “It’s not about being reliable. Charging stations is part of my plan, but it’s not suitable for a startup. I would’ve preferred to acquire a more mature business, then we could help expand more easily But startups have their advantages, it’s more flexible”
When it came to talking about business, it was like Chen Yushan turned into a completely different person. She tapped her finger on the table and looked like she was the leader of a country.
But then again, she was the CEO of a huge company
Chen Yushan suddenly realized something and spoke.
“Oh yeah, what was the wireless charging station about?”
Lu Zhou: “According to the founder, he plans on building charging stations directly into car parking spaces Basically, it means the car parking space will be one big wireless charger.”
Chen Yushan: “Does that mean the battery will have to be modified?”
Lu Zhou thought about it and said, “Or you could put a receiver in the battery.”
Chen Yushan: “Sounds interesting Is it feasible?”
Lu Zhou: “I think it’s quite easy to do, but that’s just my opinion I’ll ask some people from the Jinling Institute for Advanced Study. I think there are some experts in this area.”
Chen Yushan: “Okay then, as long as you think it’ll work. I’ll send someone for the financing negotiations. But we have to invest in electricity, whether it’s buying startups or acquiring mature businesses. And not just charging stations, everything else as well!”
Lu Zhou: “Everything else?”
“Yeah!” Chen Yushan confidently said, “Whoever masters electricity will master the future!”
