Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.



The Shangri-La Hotel in Pudong is promoting a Valentine’s Day Dinner for 388,000 yuan…that’s $50K…and if you take a date…make it $100,000!

And I thought the millionaires gathered in Bangkok paying $25K to be wined and dined was a lot.

In addition to dinner, the Shangri-La will provide:

1. evening dinner dresses designed by Vera-Wang

2. Diamonds, necklaces and pendants from South Africa

3. a pen made by Caran d “ache

4. Cartier watches

5. Chauffeur drivern Rolls-Royce limousine

6. and a partridge in a pear tree.

But, what’s on the menu – turtle testicles, frog ovaries, lizard eyes?

Shanghai likes Valentine’s Day…

Somebody will have to like somebody else a whole whole lot to be willing to pork out (golden pig style) $100K for one evening.

What do you think?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
