I'm so happy for them though and for preggo Rachel Is it strange to hope that Kevin Kwan decides to write another book in this series? Pretty please? 😁 Pre ReadWhat makes you feel better about your own family drama? Reading about someone else's I've got my popcorn ready 😼 💅My reviews forCrazy Rich AsiansChina Rich Girlfriend

The white one with the blue line at the bottom or the plain white one with the hologram sticker?”“I’m afraid I can’t remember what it looked like”“What did you do with it?”“I wore it” Piya replied patiently wondering why on earth her husband’s cousin was so weirdly fixated on this badge“I mean what did you do with your badge after the conference?”“ErI must have either thrown it away or left it in the hotel room”Eddie stared at her in disbelief His Davos badge was folded and placed in a special pouch along with his prized Roger W Smith6 watch and his precious sapphire and platinum cuff links He couldn’t wait to get it framed the minute he returned to Hong Kong c“if you aren’t a Christian what do you consider yourself to be?”“I respect every god” she replied softly c“My grandfather Shang Loong Ma’s people were Buddhists Taoists uan Yin worshippers all that mishmash of religionsyou know in that old fashioned Chinese sort of way” c“What a waste of time” Jack muttered under his breath“Waste of time? Do you even know who my friend is?”“Some silly model”“She’s not just a model—she’s the wife of Colin Khoo”“No idea who that is” And now the First Lady is about to arrive—”“And it looks like Mozart came with her”“Oh my God that’s not Mozart that’s Karl Lagerfeld He’s a very very very important man He’s the Kaiser of fashion”“What the fuck does that even mean?”“He is so powerful he could simply flare one of his nostrils and have me banned from Chanel forever and I might as well be dead Please please be polite”Jack snorted “I’ll try not to fart in his general direction” c“Why the hell did you have to marry Dad a complete nobody from Hong Kong? Why couldn’t you marry someone else like an Aakara or a Leong? Someone with a respectable surname? Didn’t you think of how it would affect your children? Didn’t you realize how it has fucked up my whole life? YOU’VE NEVER EVEN GIVEN ME A BUTT MASSAGE” c“Oh my God Rachel the president of China has come to pay his respects”Much to their surprise the next person to emerge was a tall lanky college age kid with long messy shoulder length brown hair dressed in tight black jeans steel tipped black boots and a black tuxedo jacket A Chinese man in a pinstripe suit and a blond middle aged lady in a black dress with a pale green shawl draped around her shoulders emerged next followed by a cute fair haired girl of about twelve“Stranger and stranger” сThe Bride of Frankenstein just walked in cGood grief they look like they are in some suicide cult cIt was grand and it was strange The Sultan of Borneo talked about the war and how my great grandfather helped to save his family He spoke in Malay so everything had to be translated by this very perky woman Then my brother spoke and he was so weird and stilted he sounded like the Manchurian Candidate c“You know how invisible I try to be Well I’m wandering the streets of Singapore in nothing but a little linen shift and bedroom sandals and no one’s even noticing me”“I bet you’re wrong I bet every guy on the street is thinking who is that half naked babe?” c She looked in and saw Eddie lying on the floor in a fetal position his head in Fiona’s lap Fiona sat on the floor calm as a pietà stroking his hair as he sobbed uncontrollably like a little boy She looked up at Jiayi and the maid uickly closed the door cIf it made for a slightly schizophrenic menu no one noticed except the in laws c“Well my mum just screamed at me in a way I’ve never heard before and ordered me to leave the country Otherwise life is peachy How has your day been so far?” cThis morning I walked outside into the garden and saw that all the rhododendron trees have bloomed overnight Suddenly they are bursting with flowers in shades of pink I never knew could exist Blooms so thick they brushed against my face as I walked through the garden weeping uncontrollably Ah Jit knew how much I loved these flowers He did this for me I know he did c the first thing she saw was a medical examination table in the middle of the room the kind with raised footrests found in gynecological clinics“You know Rachel I’m an ob gyn in Brisbane and if you have any medical concerns at all about your reproductive system we can address them right now” “Here why don’t you put this on and get on the table and I’ll perform a uick pelvic exam?” “Um I’m uite all right thanks” Rachel began backing away from herReaching into her pocket Jackie pulled out a pair of surgical gloves and began to put them on “This will just take a few minutes Auntie Elle just wants to know how those ovaries of yours are doing” c “You want a prayer? I’ll give you a prayer Dear Lord thank you for getting me the fuck out of here Amen” c“You know it might sound cliché but getting away from it all has been a transformative experience for me I’ve realized that so many of my fears aren’t really my own They’re the fears of my mother my father my grandparents I’ve just unconsciously internalized them and I’ve let these fears affect every decision I make So a few people see me naked on a secluded beach in one of the remotest places on earth Who cares? I’m proud of my body I have nothing to hide But of course some voice in my head would automatically say ‘Astrid put some clothes on It’s not proper You’re a Leong and you’re going to disgrace the family’ And I realize that most of the time it’s my mother’s disapproving voice I hear”“Your mother has always driven you half crazy” cI can acknowledge whenever my mother is reacting out of this fear but the most powerful thing I’ve realized is that I’m not responsible for her pain c
