The Bitch. That's what people call me. I really don't mind. After all, it's true. I do admit that I am not a good person. I don't think I'll ever be one.

I was born into a wealthy family and generally, like all the affluent species; we have our story behind the glitz and glamour of being rich and famous.

My father, Drei Yang, used to be a famous Taiwanese actor/heartthrob. Due to his connections, inside knowledge of how the industry works, and shrewdness, he now owns a flourishing media empire, Yang Conglomerate, in Taiwan. My mother, Jeri Stahl, a Norwegian national, is a former model who now manages her own resort in Phuket, Thailand.

My parents met at a photo shoot. They chatted and…FLIRTED. My father worked his way with the beauteous Scandinavian live doll who was immediately smitten with his boyish looks. They wined, dined, and bedded. Months later, I was expected.

The young Drei Yang was ecstatic to have a child. In retrospect, I think Dad just wanted a kid so that women would flock him more, showing off that they may be a potential mother for the heartthrob/playboy's daughter. My mother, on the other hand, was horrified! Being with child will ruin her career so she planned to have me aborted. To stop my mother from getting rid of me, my father offered marriage. My mother accepted because being Drei Yang's wife would keep her in the limelight. That was not a good formula for a life-long commitment.

So years and definitely millions of arguments later, they finally got divorced. My father kept me with him and my mother decided to use some of her divorce settlement to go for, in her opinion, a well-deserved vacation. She decided to meet a former lover in Thailand and fell in love with the country. Eventually, using the remainder of her settlement plus alimony, she bought and developed what is now a world-renowned luxurious resort/spa, Bliss.

My father was exultant with his freedom from matrimony. He partied and played like there was no tomorrow. I watched him as I grew up. I became fascinated with his ability to charm and bend any woman to his will.

I watched, I observed, and I LEARNED. With my father's childlike features and allure and my mother's coloring and build sans the height, I was destined to be the heartbreaker, Reina Yang a.k.a. Bitch.

Now, this heartbreaker, moi, joined forces with an accomplished flirt in the person of Chrissie Yan. I've known Chrissie since birth (if that was actually possible). She happens to be the much-adored child of Uncle Terry, my dad's best friend, and Michelle Chen, one of my dad's ex-girlfriends (imagine that?!). So naturally we became close and before we knew it, people dubbed us as the "Terrible Two", "Yan and Yang", and "The Reina and Chrissie Tandem".

Chrissie and I became SO GOOD at being HORRIBLE that my father decided to put his foot down. Upon my high school graduation, Dad had me "banished" to Thailand and live with my estranged mother, as a form of punishment. I was to attend the Assumption University of Thailand and earn a degree in business.

At first, I thought that what he was inflicting upon me did not even come close to a disciplinary action. However, as I spent my few weeks in the country I realized that it's PUNISHMENT all right. Not only was I in a country with a different language but also I get to live with the narcissistic, Jeri Stahl, my mother. Imagine living with someone you barely know, someone who superficially acts a good person so as to prove that she is the best Drei Yang has ever had. I'm in hell!

But not for long… Chrissie Yan, the Flirt, my ever-loyal partner in crime, arrived in Thailand a month after I left Taiwan. She made her father pull some strings so that she could be registered in the same university I'll be studying. Poor Uncle Terry and Auntie Chelle… I could just imagine all sorts of "disturbance" Chrissie came up with to convince her parents!!!

Although I must admit, I envy Chrissie. She has a wonderful set of parents. Uncle Terry gave up his philandering ways (he was my dad's partner in crime in the OLD days) when he fell in love with Auntie Chelle. It's actually funny because Chrissie's parents got together when my dad broke Auntie Chelle's heart. Auntie Chelle was so devastated when she learned that Dad got Mom pregnant and had decided to marry her (yes, Drei, the Stud, was sleeping with the model, Jeri, behind the famous Michelle Chen's back). So, Aunt Chelle ran...
