soaring honeycomb structured ceiling in the vast white auditorium, feeling on top of the world Im here Im finally here After years of Olympic level networking, Eddie had at long last made ithe had been invited to attend the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos Strictly by invitation only, this prestigious event was the most elite schmoozefest on the planet.Every January, the worlds most important heads of state, politicians, philanthropists, CEOs, tech leaders, thought leaders, social activists, social entrepreneurs, and, of course, movie stars would descend upon this secluded ski resort high in the Swiss Alps in their private jets, check in to their luxurious hotels, put on their 5,000 ski jackets and ski boots, and engage in meaningful dialogues about such urgent issues as global warming and rising inequality.And now Eddie was part of this ultraexclusive club As the recently appointed senior executive vice chairman of Private Banking Global for the Liechtenburg Group, he now found himself standing in the middle of the futuristic auditorium at the Congress Centre, breathing in the rarefied air and catching slivers of his own reflection in the thin chrome leg of an auditorium chair He was wearing his new bespoke Sartoria Ripense suit, which had been outfitted with an inner lining of ten ply cashmere so that he never had to wear a ski jacket over it His new Corthay squirrel suede chukkas had special rubber soles, so he would never slip on the slick Alpine streets On his wrist was his newest horological acquisitiona rose gold A Lange Shne Richard Lange Pour le Mrite, peeking out the precise amount from his sleeve cuff so other watchophiles would see what he was wearing But most important of all was what he wore over this sartorial splendora black lanyard at the end of which was attached a white plastic badge with his name printed in the middle Edison Cheng.Eddie fondled the slick plastic badge as if it were a jewel encrusted amulet, personally bestowed on him by the God of Davos This badge distinguished him from all the pee ons at the conference He wasnt some PR hack, journalist, or one of the common attendees This white plastic badge with the blue line at the bottom meant that he was an official delegate.Eddie glanced around the room at all the clusters of people in hushed conversations, trying to see which dictator, despot, or director he could recognize and connect with Out of the corner of his eye, he spotted a tall Chinese man wearing a bright orange ski parka peeking in through the auditoriums side door, seemingly a little lost Wait a minute, I know that guy Isnt that Charlie Wu OyCharlie Eddie yelled, a little too loudly, as he rushed over toward Charlie Wait till he sees my official delegate badge Charlie beamed at him in recognition Eddie Cheng Did you just get in from Hong Kong I came from Milan, actually I was at the mens fall fashion showsfront row seat at Etro.Wow I guess being one of Hong Kong Tattles Best Dressed Men is serious work, isnt it Charlie quipped.Actually, I made it into the Best Dressed Hall of Fame last year, Eddie replied earnestly He gave Charlie a quick once over, noticing that he was wearing khaki pants with cargo pockets and a navy blue pullover under his bright orange parka What a pityhe used to be so fashionable when he was younger, and now hes dressed like every other tech geek nobody Wheres your badge, Charlie Eddie asked, flashing his own proudly.Oh yes, were supposed to wear them at all times, arent we Thanks for reminding meits somewhere buried in my messenger bag Charlie dug around for a few seconds before fishing out his badge, and Eddie glanced at it, his curiosity morphing into shocked dismay Charlie was holding an all white badge affixed with a shiny holographic sticker Fucky fuck, this was the most coveted badge The one they only gave to world leaders The only other person he had seen so far wearing that badge was Bill Clinton How the fuck did Charlie get one All he did was run Asias biggest tech company Trying to mask his envy, Eddie blurted, Hey, are you attending my panelApocalypse Asia How to Secure Your Assets When the China Bubble Really Bursts Im actually on my way to give a talk to IGWEL What time do you go on Two oclock Whats your talk about Eddie asked, thinking that he could somehow tag along with Charlie.I dont have anything prepared, really I think Angela Merkel and some of the Scandinavians just wanted to pick my brain.Just then, Charlies executive assistant, Alice, walked up to join them.Alice, look who I found I knew wed bump into someone from back home sooner or later, Charlie said.Mr Cheng, so nice to see you here Charliecould I have a quick word Sure.Alice glanced at Eddie, who looked only too eager for her to continue while he was standing right there Er would you mind coming with me for a moment she said diplomatically, guiding Charlie into a side reception room furnished with several lounge chairs and glass cube coffee tables.Whats up Are you still trying to recover from sitting at the same breakfast table with Pharrell Charlie teased.Alice smiled tensely Theres been a developing situation all morning, and we didnt want to disturb you until we knew .Well, spit it out.Alice took a deep breath before beginning I just got the latest update from our head of security in Hong Kong I dont quite know how to tell you this, but Chloe and Delphine are missing.What do you mean missing Charlie was stunnedhis daughters were under round the clock surveillance, and their pickups and drop offs were handled with military precision by his SAS trained security team Missing was not a variable in their lives.Team Chungking was scheduled to pick them up outside Diocesan at 3 50 p.m., but the girls couldnt be located at the school.Couldnt be located Charlie mumbled in shock.Alice continued, Chloe didnt respond to any of her texts, and Delphine never showed up for choir at two They thought maybe she sneaked off with her classmate Kathryn Chan to that frozen yogurt shop like she did last time, but then Kathryn turned up at choir practice and Delphine didnt.Did either of them activate their panic codes Charlie asked, trying to remain calm.No, they didnt Their phones both appear to have been deactivated, so we cant trace them Team 2046 has already spoken with Commander Kwokthe Hong Kong police have been placed on high alert We also have four of our own teams searching everywhere for them, and the school is now reviewing all their security camera footage with Mr Tin.Im assuming someones talked to their mother Charlies wifefrom whom he was estrangedlived in their house on The Peak, and the children spent every other week with her.Isabel cant be reached She told the housekeeper that she was meeting her mother for lunch at the Kowloon Cricket Club, but her mother reports that they havent spoken all week.Just then, the cell phone rang again and Alice quickly answered She listened in silence, nodding her head every now and then Charlie looked at her pensively This couldnt be happening This couldnt be happening Ten years ago his brother Rob had been kidnapped by the Eleven Finger Triad It was like dj vu all over again.Okay Tor jeh, tor jeh, Alice said, hanging up Looking at Charlie, she reported, That was the leader of Team Angels They now think that Isabel might have left the country They spoke to the upstairs maid, and Isabels passport is missing But for some reason she didnt take any suitcases.Isnt she in the middle of some new treatment Yes, but apparently she didnt show up at her psychiatrist appointment this week.Charlie let out a deep sigh This wasnt a good sign.CHAPTER TWOfullerton hotel, singaporeEvery month, Rosalind Fung, the property heiress, hosted a Christian Fellowship Banquet for three hundred of her closest girlfriends in the opulent ballroom of the Fullerton Hotel An invitation to this occasion was highly coveted by a certain segment of Singapore society regardless of their religious affiliation as it was a seal of approval from the old guard there wasnt a single Chindo or Mainlander in sight , and also because the food was heavenlyRosalind brought in her personal chefs, who took over the hotels kitchens for one day and prepared an enormous buffet feast consisting of the most mouthwatering Singaporean dishes Most importantthis biblical bacchanal was completely free of charge thanks to Rosalinds generosity, although guests were asked to contribute something to the offering basket immediately following the closing prayer.Having strategically chosen a table closest to the buffet area, Daisy Foo sighed as she watched Araminta Lee standing in line at the noodle station dishing out some mee siam Aiyahthat Araminta Bein kar ani laau She doesnt look old She just doesnt have any makeup on, thats all Those supermodel types look like nothing on earth without makeup, Nadine Shaw said as she tucked into her steaming bowl of mee rebus noodles.Dousing her mee goreng with chili oil, Eleanor Young commented, It has nothing to do with that I used to see her swim at the Churchill Club, and even when she was coming out of the pool dripping wet, she looked beautiful without a stitch of makeup on Her face has just taken a turn, thats all She has one of those faces that I always knew would age badly What is she twenty seven, twenty eight now Its all over for her, lah.At that moment, Lorena Lim and Carol Tai arrived at the table with plates piled dangerously high with food Wait, wait whos aging badly Lorena inquired eagerly.Araminta Lee Over at that table with all the Khoo women Doesnt she look haggard Nadine said.Alamak, bite your tongue, Nadine Didnt you know she just had a miscarriage Carol whispered.The ladies all stared at Carol, mouths agape Again Are you joking Who told you, lah Daisy demanded, still chewing on her mee pok.Who else Kitty, lor Kitty and Araminta are the best of friends now, and ever since this latest miscarriage, shes been spending a lot of time at Kittys house playing with Gisele Shes completely heartbroken.How often do you see Kitty and Gisele Lorena asked, marveling that Carol could be so forgiving of her ex daughter in lawthe same woman who had cheated on her son, Bernard, with a man Kitty met at the funeral of Carols late husband and who subsequently dragged Bernard through a particularly acrimonious divorce and custody battle Of course, it didnt hurt that Carol abhorred her sons new lifestyle of yoga and that ridiculous Jurassic diet, both of which she considered to be satanic I go over to Kittys at least once a week, and Gisele comes to church with me every Sunday, Carol proudly reported.Is it healthy for Araminta to be playing with your granddaughter when she just lost her own baby Nadine wondered out loud.Aiyah, Im sure old Mrs Khoo must be giving Araminta soooo much pressure to produce a grandson Its been five years since she married Colin My Nicky and Rachel have been married for two years now, and they still wont give me a grandchild Eleanor complained.But Araminta is still young She has plenty of time, lah, Nadine argued.With all of Dorothy Khoos side disinherited, Puans side good for nothings, and Nigel Khoo running off and marrying that Russian cabaret singer, who is obviously too old to seh kiah, Colin and Araminta are the last hope to carry on the Khoo name, Daisy commented Having been born a Wong, of the tin mining Wongs, Daisy had an encyclopedic knowledge of Singapores social history.The ladies all shook their heads, casting pitiful glances at Araminta, who to anyone else but these womens hypercritical eyes looked perfectly gorgeous and lovely in her yellow striped minidress from Jacquemus.Well, Eleanor, your niece Astrid just arrived Theres one girl who never seems to age, Carol observed.All the women turned to look as Astrid descended the sweeping curved staircase with her mother, Felicity Leong the society queen Mrs Lee Yong Chien and another elderly lady decked out in a cobalt blue sequined hijab.Who is that Malay woman wearing that ginormous ruby choker If that center stone looks as big as it does from here, it must be the size of a lychee up close Lorena exclaimed Having been married into the LOrient Jewelry family for than three decades, she definitely knew her rocks.Oh thats the Dowager Sultana of Perawak Shes staying with the Leongs, of course, Eleanor reported.Alamak, having royalty as houseguests is such a nuisance Daisy complained.Lorena, like most of the other women in the ballroom, scrutinized Astrid from head to toe as she walked to her table wearing what appeared to be a crisp mens button down shirt tucked into exquisitely cut navy and white gingham cigarette trousers Its true, Astrid actually looks younger and younger every time I see her Isnt she in her late thirties by now She looks like an MGS girl coming off the school bus I bet you she must be sneaking off somewhere and getting things done.I can tell you she hasnt had a thing done Shes not the type, Eleanor said.Its how she puts it all together The other girls her age are dressed up like Christmas trees but just look at Astrid hair in a sleek ponytail, ballet flats, not a drop of jewelry except that cross is it turquoise And that outfit She looks like Audrey Hepburn on the way to a screen test, Daisy said approvingly as she fished around in her new Cline handbag for a toothpick Blah dee hell See what my snobby daughter in law forces me to carry She gave me this fancy handbag for my birthday because shes embarrassed of being seen next to me when Im carrying my no name purse, but I cant ever find anything in here Its so damn deep, and there are so many damn pockets Daisy, will you please stop swearing We are in the Lords presence tonight, you know, Carol admonished.As if on cue, the Christian Fellowship Banquets hostess, Rosalind Fung, got up from her table and walked onto the stage A short, plumpish woman in her mid sixties with a frizzy spiral perm, Rosalind was dressed in what seemed to be the regulation uniform of every middle aged old money Singaporean heiressa sleeveless floral blouse, probably purchased from the clearance rack at John Little, taupe elastic waist pants, and orthopedic open toe sandals She smiled happily from the podium at her gathered friends.Flashy, funny Delicious, the juicy stuff of classic high society drama Rich People Problemsis a fun tabloid romp full of over the top shenanigans, like a society party
