    Porsce-driving Louie Huang ...

    There is one Chinese export product that is seemingly unstoppable at the moment - millionaires.

    Porsche-driving Louie Huang lives in Shanghai, having made his money - a lot of money - in property.

    He is having a 200-room villa built here and owns properties in at least five other cities around the world.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    We think the following sentence is wrong.

    Porsche-driving Louie Huang lives in Shanghai, having made his money - a lot of money - in property.
    Do you think it is a correct one? We think it is a meaningless sentence.

    To write the following is correct.
    Porsche-driving Louie Huang lives in Shanghai made a lot of money and property.

    Re: Porsce-driving Louie Huang ...

    How do you make property?

    He made his money in property, that is in real estate.

    And you can't say "lives in Shanghai made a lot of money." You're missing something to link the two phrases together.
