With China Rich Girlfriend Audiobook , Kevin continues his trilogy of ” Crazy rich asians ” discovered in Crazy rich in Singapore. There is no question here of ordinary people. To attend this circle of the ultra privileged, you must be born in the seraglio, have attended the best kindergarten and the most prestigious university and if you can trace your family tree back to Confucius, that is a plus. You spend a lot but you have to know how to be discreet, not to display your fortune, not to make the headlines and, of course, you don’t spit on small savings and you can shamelessly grab the mini shampoos of luxury hotels. .
On the other hand, in mainland China, the nouveau riche are on display. If parents, who have made their fortunes in business or politics, remain cautious about memories of harder times, they do not resist the wishes of their children. The golden generation is having a blast and isn’t afraid to flaunt their money. Overpriced racing cars, apartments with car lift, five-star hotels privatized for a ” very simple ” reception (with Gordon Ramsay in the kitchen!), Private jets that look like caravels … Nothing can stop the ” fu er dai ”, the second generation of the rich. But the Singaporean or Hong Kong establishment continues to snub these upstart “peasants”.

Highly paid, advisers are there to create a new personality for those who suffer from being rejected despite their millions in the bank.
