vulturing relatives blechworthyI couldn t help laughing at the scene with Eddie and his toilet cubicle shoe adoration thingy Signing Eddie crying Eddie prostrating Eddie he overdid himself The death scene too sad even for all the pathetic relatives and antics of most of them Astrid and Charlie finally so sweet Even for all the dramaThe ob gyn performance left me in hiccupsEddie fondled the slick plastic badge as if it were a jewel encrusted amulet personally bestowed on him by the God of Davos This badge distinguished him from all the pee ons at the conference He wasn t some PR hack journalist or one of the common attendees This white plastic badge with the blue line at the bottom meant that he was an official delegate cTaking the seat next to Piya on a velvet Ruhlmann settee he whispered So I take it you had an IGWEL badge Piya was momentarily confused I m sorry are your referring to Davos Yes When you were at Davos two years ago what kind of badge did they give you 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 The 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 piet 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 clich 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

utterly outrageous Kwan s tales of three generations of Chinese families set mostly in Singapore provides a hysterical glimpse into how the ultra rich livePeel away the veneer of wealth and

they are always rightSu Yi the matriarch of the Young Family is on her deathbed She has a massive fortune capped by Tyersall Park a 64 acre estate on prime land in Singapore While Asian tradition would usually expect Su Yi to leave the estate to her eldest son Philip many believed she d beueath it to his son her favorite grandson Nicholas But Nicholas has been estranged from his grandmother after she voiced her disapproval of his marrying Rachel whom she viewed as a common Chinese girl so he hasn t been home to visit her in several yearsWith disposition of Su Yi s estate in uestion her entire family heads to Tyersall Park to hopefully get into her good graces and perhaps move up a bit in her will before she passes Her eldest daughter Felicity knows that she ll probably get the short end of the stick because of her gender but she has bigger fish to fry her daughter Astrid is scandalizing the family with her relationship with her college boyfriend Charlie Wu The family never thought that he was good enough for her even though he is a self made technology tycoon now they don t want the two to get together now even though both are on the verge of divorcingAnother grandson Edson Eddie Chang has also come to be with Su Yi with his family in tow Eddie is the most status conscious of any of the family members he always has to be sure people know he s wearing top of the line designers the most expensive and uniue shoes one pair needed to be dyed multiple times so they took weeks to be ready for him and the most luxurious of luxury timepieces He is bound and determined to finally get the respect he believes he deserves and if that means keeping others away from his grandmother until he wins her over to his side so be itWhile Nicholas says he doesn t care about the estate and doesn t want to revisit the hurt his grandmother caused he realizes he needs to say goodbye to her Plus his high strung mother insists about five times a day when she s not interrogating him and Rachel about when they ll give her a grandchild His return home dredges up some resentment especially with his cousin Eddie but spending time with Su Yi and other family members reminds him of the importance of family but reinforces how smart he and Rachel are to live in New YorkMeanwhile former umm actress Kitty Pong has finally gained some status with her marriage to China s second richest man Jack Bing But her uest for respectability keeps falling short as she can t seem to reconcile her schizophrenic tastes in fashion and decor with what is expected of someone in her position Even worse is the fact that she is convinced her stepdaughter fashionista turned attorney s wife Colette is trying to upstage her at every turn No matter how hard she tries to stand out Colette seems to be in her way despite her sudden passion for the environment and no frills fashionScientists talk about how we inherit health issues from our parents through our genes but we also inherit this entire lineage of fear and pain generations of it Rich People Problems is uite funny as it chronicles the over the top behavior of these people as they battle for an inheritance social acceptance love and most of all money Kwan imbues his book with painstaking details even his footnotes are hysterical while also being informative and a litany of designers couture and descriptions of food sure to make your stomach growl uite loudly Even the characters names are amazing my favorite is probably Scheherazade Shang or Harvard Bing the infant son of Kitty and Jack The visuals Kwan s imagery conveys are eye popping and some of the dialogue is campier than any soap opera diva or villain sLike many I ve occasionally thought about what life might be like if I didn t have to worry about money what I would do where I would go what I would spend it on But the amount of money the characters in this book throw around one character gets an eye lift for a rare fish to make it look younger is unfathomable which makes the book so much fun to read A true guilty pleasure See all of my reviews at
