Book: Shanghai Sisters by Miranda Eu

Filed under: Reading List — tanling @ 2:42 am


I have not been taking pictures of cooking lately. Busy reading books I bought over the months. I bought Shanghai Sisters out of curiousity – author’s name Miranda Eu. I guessed she is from the famous Eu Yan Sang chinese medical hall family. Yep she is, married into the Eu family. Don’t misunderstand that this book is about Eu but about the Miranda’s family. Miranda’s maiden family name is Loo. Her grandparents are Hardoon (the Grandpa-a Jewish) and Loo (the Grandma-a half Chinese) are rich and famous before WWII in Shanghai. This books reveals what money can do good and also damage a family. Good read if you are a Shanghai city fan.


  1. Where did you purchase this book? I am interested in locating a copy.

  2. Can you email me your address? I can post my copy to you. Seems like it is not available on amazon. I bought it from a local store http://www.popular.com.my/index.jsp but I don’t know if they do deliver to overseas readers.
