Charlie has always been too tall, too skinny and too wild to ever be considered a proper nyonya. Her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are always looking on in disapproval, yet Charlie knows she must follow her heart in career and in love. That becomes complicated when three men fight for her affection, a major smuggling ring must be investigated and the paparazzi cannot get enough of her!

“Nonya Charlie aka Charlene Neo is a charmingly contradictory heroine in the true Peranakan and adventure tradition…with a touch of romance thrown in.” — Ovidia Yu, author of 'The Cannonball Tree Mystery'


SANDRA CHUA is a former magazine editor and meddlesome mother of three exasperated daughters. In addition, she's an avid bookworm, K-drama addict and Domestic Goddess wannabe. 'There Is No Such Thing as a Skinny Bibik' is her first novel.
