Kevin Kwan Manila Book Tour

Kevin Kwan Manila Book Tour
Few more days and it will be the most anticipated movie of the year, the Crazy Rich Asians.



I guess you’ve seen the extravagant trailer few weeks ago, and as a huge fan of the writer and his books, I am also excited for this movie (hey I’ve waited for this moment ever since I’ve bought his first book!). I am expecting it will be one of the grandest movie of the year, with all Asian superstar casts, plus it was filmed here in Asia, particularly in Singapore.


It’s been a while since the last Asian movie craze (remember that Joy Luck Club?) and of course, gossiping about the SES people and ultra-high-net-worth-people, is becoming my goody hobby while sipping my favorite Bordeaux. You see, it is a rarely occasion that I will bump one of this people, so reading a fictional book would be a good treat as well.




Actually, the book isn’t 100% fictional as Kevin Kwan admitted that most of the scenarios from the stories comes from real life, and just changed the names and the people of course for privacy reason. But whatever, it is still juicy and delicious to read, and I can’t wait for the premiere this August 2018.

Looking back last year (circa August 19, 2017), I’ve attended his 2nd Manila book tour hosted by my favorite book shop, The Fully Booked and also the launched of his 3rd book Rich Peoples Problem. I’ve finished reading his books, and I couldn’t get enough! Well, I will share you my book review soon!

For the meantime, here’s some of the photos during his 2nd book tour!

I remember clearing out my schedule, and have a full preparation to attend his book tour! It was a rare occasion that I attended a book tour, but Kevin Kwan is very special to me and of course I will never miss it to the world!

It seems the crowd was doubled since his first Manila book tour. People are already waiting outside the bookshop as early as 8:00AM in the morning (bookshop opens at 10:00AM) and it was a lovely sight. Truly, Kevin Kwan is a huge hit in Manila – we love juicy gossips!

The book shop also showcased these artistic Crazy Rich Asians sugar cookies! Ohh they are so cute to eat :D

  22. How funny that he incorporates these real- life stories of bad behavior into his writing. I guess he follows the school of thought that says you should "write what you know."
