A tip in the form of a chocolate bar would change his life!

Born in communist China, Jimmy Lai was nine years old and working at a train station, carrying luggage, when he was given a chocolate bar as a tip. The boy vowed to go to Hong Kong, where the tasty treat originated. At twelve, he convinced his mother to allow him to be smuggled—alone!—to Hong Kong. Thus began the transformation of his life.

Now one of the richest men in Hong Kong, Jimmy Lai shares his incredible story of hard work, education, and perseverance.
