During this busy non-stop performance period, reading is particularly enjoyable. Is it really the period? or is it simply the book? Chun enjoys reading this third book of Kevin Kwan’s famous trilogy Crazy Rich Asians very much. He would read this before bed, until late, very late, captivated by the addictive plot, until his eyes burn.
This third book is mainly about the story’s Ah Ma (Grandma in Cantonese), Shang Su Yi. Reading it can’t stop Chun from thinking of his own Ah Ma……
A woman still actually cooks for her whole family in her nineties!!!! Ah Ma is undoubtedly one brave woman. When Chun was small, both of his parents had to work during the day, and the one who brought him up was Ah Ma. He especially misses the chicken wings that Ah Ma used to make him for lunch. Ah Ma knows Chun’s tastes very well, and because he has always loved the chicken wings, she would prepare him some each time when he goes back to Hong Kong…..
At her age, Ah Ma cannot travel anymore……
It was almost 2am, his eyes too tired from reading… Chun turned off the lights, was lying on his bed and staring at the ceiling, and started thinking about his sweet sweet childhood and all the moments that he spent with his grandma as he closed his eyes.
Two minutes later, his right hand reached for his iPhone which was on the floor. He rang his mother:
“- What happened Son? How come you’re awake at such hour?
– Mum, I should come back to Hong Kong in January even if the air ticket costs me 3000 euros!”
That night, Chun hadn’t slept so well since a long time.
