Game Programmer Quits Job To Sell Street Food, Doubles Salary

This wonder of creation is incredibly cheap and incredibly filling—they come in all sizes and shapes as well as a with a variety of fillings. These little flatbreads have also helped change the life of one Chinese game programer.

I wonder what it tastes like. Is it like sweet bread?... Now I want some coffee and sweet bread. >.<

Surely he wasn't THAT bad at programming?

Well it's a different country and different economy. Programming over there is actually pretty common so it's not like there's a huge demand over there where the pay would be a lot like it might be in some other countries.

there are two ladies who graduated out of UCLA with MA in architecture I believe. One of them worked at Disney as a project manager, got laid off after a year or so. She and her friend bought a truck and redesigned into an ice cream truck. Yep, they are now making a living selling ice creams named after famous architects (Frank Berry). They are pretty famous in LA I heard. When designers can't make a good living, they find creative ways for other jobs.
