I was playing Viva Pinata and thought I should invest in a gold mine while I was loaded. I placed the mine and hired a few Diggerlings to dig and mine the gold. Zooming in, I noticed they had slanted eyes, a golden rice hat, and mostly spoke in asian sounding 'wahh' noises. I read their description, and it said that once all the net cafes in their native land had shut down, they went into the mining business to escape the sun.
Little asian guys... mining gold for you... used to live in net cafes... see anything similar to WOW here?
I do remember something about being able to hire people in asia to mine gold for you.
