by Marie Claire Lim Moor

In this follow-up to her first memoir, Marie Claire Lim Moore has no shortage of entertaining stories from her childhood in Vancouver and New York City and her expat experiences in Singapore and Hong Kong. Claire’s positively Filipino parents have a big influence on her whether it comes to managing family and career, meeting world leaders, or simply making new friends.

From stray observations (“everything is funnier at church”) to life mantras (“don’t let perfection hold you back”) to litmus tests (“would you serve drinks at my mother’s art show?”), Claire’s warm and honest storytelling will resonate with readers and leave them smiling.

    I love how positive and heartwarming this book is and how easy it is to read. It’s a timely reminder of how special family is and how all of us can be happier and more fulfilled if we make the most of what we have and live our best lives. Bravo, Ms. Claire Lim Moore! Keep writing and sharing your wonderful stories.

    A proper sequel to best-seller Don’t Forget the Soap, Don’t Forget the Parsley is another light read you can finish in one sitting — not because it’s a short memoir, but because you won’t be able to put it down until the last page. What I like about Claire’s writing is she welcomes you into parts of her life as if you’re talking to a close friend over coffee. If DTFS has her mother Lenore as focus, DFTP has more stories and reflections on the author’s father, brother, and husband, which make this book seem a bit more balanced. Which is pretty much the book’s central theme. Those who didn’t grow up with the immigrant experience might relate to more topics here (i.e. pulling a tooth the Filipino way).

    Young professionals and those inspired to make something out of their personal and work lives should read this. Her pieces of advice are laid-back, found throughout the book, and mostly from her personal experiences which you’ll find very amusing and helpful. For fathers, mothers, siblings, and best friends. It’s a title that can survive many generations. Don’t Forget the Parsley is funny, and a great addition to any family library and gift wish list!

    I’m not usually fond of sequels, but this book is an exception. I laughed a lot while reading her first book, but this time, in Don’t Forget The Parsley, I laughed out LOUD and rolled over many times, too. There are plenty of touching moments as well, and my favorite is when they gifted their mom with an iPod. You’ll have to buy the book to find out what happened. You won’t regret it.

    Reading this book made me want to meet the author’s father in person, and shake his hand. I suspect he and my dad would get along very well.

    All things considered, this book is a wonderful addition to our family library, and a very nice gift to book-loving, expat friends. I am willing to bet you have at least one of those, too.
