Where the Indian and Chinese engineers who work in the Silicon Valley buy their homes.
That engineer who graduated from India Tech bought a home in Fremont after working in the Silicon Valley for a few years.
A city near San Mateo, on the edge of the San Francisco Bay near the San Mateo bridge. Built on reclaimed marshland, the city is an upscale, planned community surrounding lagoons with many waterfront homes. The town has a reputation as a Yuppie enclave and many Asians reside in Foster City.
I just purchased a waterfront condo in Foster City for $750,000 so now I am officially a yuppie.
The quality of being extremely flamboyant, ostentatious and flashy with one's wealth. Basically, if a person goes over the top flaunting his wealth, he is Persian rich.

A city to the immediate north of Stanford University and Palo Alto. The city is known for its upscale downtown and the strip along Sand Hill Road that is home to the largest concentration of Venture Capital firms in the world. The people who live in the town tend to have Graduate degrees and most of them can accurately be described as yuppies.
Standford Alumnus One: It is nice running into you, what is new in your life lately?

An Asian (especially foreign born Chinese) trophy wife typically married to a rich non asian guy.
That nerd married a hot Ming Ming after he took his tech company public and made millions.
The term came about as an acronym for Young (Y) Urban (U) Professional (P) sometime in the early 1980's.
Yuppies tend to have at least Bachelors degrees (but more common, these days, graduate or professional degrees such as JD's and MBA's) and work in high paying professions such as Law, Accounting, Investment Banking, Engineering etc. Yuppies are known for their conspicous level of consumption and obsession with status symbols.
They tend to reside in urban environs such as Manhattan or San Francisco, but there are also suburban areas that are heavily populated with yuppies (such as Menlo Park/Palo Alto and Marin County, all in northern California).
Often times, Yuppies are "Big Hat, No Cattle" types who pay $2,000 a month to rent a swanky apartment and spend another $1,000 a month financing a luxury car, but at the end of the day have a negative networth because they are so in debt from their student loans and credit card bills.
For a perfect example of the yuppie lifestyle, watch the movie American Psycho.
Prospective Renter: Why are the rents here so high?
Landlord: Because the yuppies are willing to pay top dollar for the prestigous address and the fact that the building is right down the street from all the swanky restaurants, nightclubs, clothing boutiques and cafes.
