THE REAL CRAZY RICH ASIANS GO BEHIND THE CURTAIN WITH BAZAAR

The film Crazy Rich Asians debuted nation-wide last weekend and was one of the top grossing films for the week. With such a strong opening a sequel is already in the works. Of course it all started with the book “Crazy Rich Asians” by Kevin Kwan. A fascinating look in to a world not widely know about in the west. Though with the changing social media landscape and the explosion of You Tube much of that has change. And a lot has changed since Kevin Kwan’s childhood in Singapore and even since 2013 when the book was written.

I want to see the film and read the book. In fact I just ordered it from Amazon for my trip to Paris. But are you curious to know about the real crazy rich Asians? In the ever burgeoning world of the self famous it seems our appetite for peaking behind the curtains of “real” people has no end. Though the people in Kevin Kwans book may not be real, the people they are represent are real—though a rarified breed of the extremely privileged to be sure. So if you think such a world is made up guess again, it does exist. And Bazaar along with writer Kevin Kwan traveled to Asian to meet and document the real crazy rich Asians. This You Tube video is a fascinating and fun look at a world most of us can just drool over. But a guilty pleasure it is.

    The book is a real page turner and they did a good job of staying true to the story with the book. It is semi autobiographical in terms of the society and the people portrayed which honestly is the craziest part of the whole thing.

    Oh my gosh, the fashion in this video is an absolute dream! I’ll definitely be looking into this as well; great decision to order the book for your trip to Paris – I’ve no doubt it’ll be an excellent read. Okay, feeling SO inspired right now haha…

    The gowns are incredible! I’ll never have that kind of money, but if I did, splurging on fashion would be something I’d do! 🙂 Thanks for sharing the video.

    I hope that your week has been going well so far 🙂

    The book will be my next audiobook book purchase! I expect to be entertained, but have some ambivalent feelings about it.
    How people shop is fascinating to me.
