Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that. "This karat beach read is crazy fun." —Entertainment WeeklyWhen New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, .
Rachel tried to imagine a tradi- tional Chinese grandmother preparing this quintessentially English confection. Lauren Weisberger. I know how much you love these scones. She pointed it in the direction of her friend, but surreptitiously trained the lens on Nicholas. Any Asian would relate to this.

Ormsby was indignant. How dare this Chinese woman with the Thatcheresque perm and preposterous English accent speak to him in such a manner? Im afraid we simply do not have anything available, he declared. Are you telling me that there are no rooms left in this entire hotel? Eleanor said incredulously. Yes, he replied curtly. Where are we supposed to go at this hour? Eleanor asked. Perhaps someplace in Chinatown?
Ormsby snifed. These for- eigners had wasted enough of his time. Felicity went back to where her younger sister Alexandra Cheng stood guarding the luggage. I cant wait to take a hot bath, Alexandra said eagerly. Actually, this odious man is refusing to give us our room! Felicity said, making no attempt to hide her fury. Alexandra asked, completely confused.
I think it has something to do with us being Chinese, Felicity said, as if she didnt quite believe her own words. Let me talk to him. Liv- ing in Hong Kong, I have more experience dealing with these types.
Alix, dont bother.
Hes a typical ang mor gau sai! Eleanor exclaimed. Even so, isnt this supposed to be one of Londons top hotels? How can they get away with that sort of behavior? Alexandra asked. Felicity raged on. The English are normally so lovely, I have never been treated like this in all my years coming here.
Eleanor nodded in agreement, even though privately she felt that Felicity was partly to blame for this asco. If Felicity wasnt so giam siap. Of course, it didnt help that her sisters- in- law always looked so dowdy, she had to dress down when- ever she traveled with them, ever since that trip to Thailand when everyone mistook them for her maids.
Edison Cheng, Alexandras twelve- year- old son, approached the ladies nonchalantly, sipping soda from a tall glass. Aiyah, Eddie! Where did you get that? Alexandra exclaimed. From the bartender, of course.
How did you pay for it? I didnt I told him to charge it to our suite, Eddie replied breezily. Can we go up now? Im starving and I want to order from room service. Felicity shook her head in disapproval Hong Kong boys were notoriously pampered, but this nephew of hers was incorrigible. Good thing they were here to put him in boarding school, where he would have some sense knocked into him cold morning show- ers and stale toast with Bovril was what he needed.
No, no, were not staying here anymore. Go and watch Nicky and Astrid while we decide what to do, Felicity instructed. A charming Hokkien colloquialism that translates to red- haired ang mor dog shit gau sai. Used in reference to all Westerners, its usually shortened to a simple ang mor.
Hokkien for stingy, miserly. The vast majority of Singaporeans speak English, but it is a common practice to mash up words in Malay, Indian, and various Chinese dialects to form a local patois known as Singlish.
Of the sofa! Remember, Im the chair- man, so Im the one who gets to sit, he commanded.
Here, Nicky, hold my glass while I sip from the straw. Astrid, youre my executive secretary, so you need to massage my shoulders. I dont know why you get to be the chairman, while Nicky is the vice president and I have to be the secretary, Astrid protested.
Didnt I explain this already? Im the chairman, because I am four years older than the both of you. Youre the executive secretary, because youre the girl.
I need a girl to massage my shoulders and to help choose jewelry for all my mistresses. My best friend Leos father, Ming Kah- Ching, is the third- richest man in Hong Kong, and thats what his executive secretary does. Eddie, if you want me to be your vice president, I should be doing something more important than holding your glass, Nick argued. We still havent decided what our company makes. Ive decided we make custom limousines, like Rolls- Royces and Jags, Eddie declared. Cant we make something cooler, like a time machine?
Nick asked. Well, these are ultra- special limousines with features like Jacuzzis, secret compartments, and James Bond ejector seats, Eddie said, bouncing up from the settee so suddenly that he knocked the glass out of Nicks hand. Coca- Cola spilled everywhere, and the sound of smashing glass pierced the lobby. The bell captain, con- cierge, and front- desk clerks glared at the children. Alexandra rushed over, shaking a nger in dismay. Look what youve done!
It wasnt my fault Nicky was the one who dropped it, Eddie began. But its your glass, and you hit it out of my hand! Nick defended himself.
Ormsby approached Felicity and Eleanor. Im afraid Im going to have to ask you to leave the premises. Can we just use your telephone?
Eleanor pleaded. I do think the children have done quite enough damage for one night, dont you? It was still drizzling, and the group huddled under a green- and- white-striped awning on Brook Street while Felicity stood inside a phone booth frantically calling other hotels. Mummy, what are we going to do if we cant nd a place to stay tonight? Maybe we can sleep in Hyde Park. Theres an amazing weeping beech in Hyde Park called the upside- down tree, and its branches hang down so low that its almost like a cave.
We can all sleep underneath and be protected Dont talk nonsense! No one is sleeping in the park. Dai gu cheh is calling other hotels right now, Eleanor said, thinking that her son was getting far too precocious for his own good. Oooh, I want to sleep in the park!
Astrid squealed in delight. Nicky, remember how we moved that big iron bed at Ah Mas house into the garden and slept under the stars one night? Dont be ridiculous, Eddie. When have you ever had caviar? At Leos house. Their butler always serves us caviar with little triangles of toasted bread. And its always Iranian beluga, because Leos mum says Iranian caviar is the best, Eddie declared. Connie Ming would say something like that, Alexandra mut- tered under her breath, glad her son was nally away from that fam- ilys inuence.
Inside the telephone booth, Felicity was trying to explain the predicament to her husband over a crackly connection to Singapore. What nonsense, lah! You should have demanded the room! Harry Leong fumed. You are always too polite these service peo- ple need to be put in their place. Did you tell them who we are? Im going to call up the minister of trade and investment right now!
Come on, Harry, youre not helping. Ive called more than ten hotels already. Who knew that today was Commonwealth Day? Every VIP is in town and everyone is booked solid. Poor Astrid is soaked through.
We need to nd someplace for tonight before your daughter catches her death of cold. Did you try calling your cousin Leonard? Maybe you could take a train straight to Surrey, Harry suggested. Hes not in hes grouse hunting in Scotland all week- end. What a bloody mess!
Harry sighed. Let me call Tommy Toh over at the Singapore embassy. Im sure they can sort things out.

Report as inappropriate. I was very amused when I read about the locations in Singapore mentioned in this book. I'm pretty familiar with the way locals argue over food! I am a Filipino-Chinese and I can totally relate to the culture of the characters presented in this book.
I find myself laughing and nodding to every different situation the characters encounter - from the parents down to the latter generation, and that is what I love about this book - it connects me to my roots. I absolutely loved this book.. It was a funny and easy book to read; perfect for summer!
As an someone from South East Asia, some anecdotes easily took me travel back home.
