Chinese Domain News
Kassey Lee reported:
Baifumei.com caught by DropCatch on August 29 for $9,560 has excellent Chinese meaning. Bai Fu Mei is 3-pin and has only 8 characters. The name may refer to 白富美 (white, rich, and beautiful), which is a popular phrase in China to refer to girls that have white skin color and are well off, beautiful, stylish, and elegant.
