Currently reading Three-body problem by Cixin Liu.

I don't know if he's the first Chinese sci-fi writer, but I'm really appreciating the new perspective he's writing from. I guess I've always read western sci-fi without thinking about it much.

He also has a physics background, and the premise is a good mix of realistic and imaginative, which makes the suspension of disbelief not so hard.

Great to hear this! That book's on my to-read list.

Have you read the Universe of Xuya series by Aliette de Bodard? Confucian galactic empires of Vietnamese and Chinese inspiration.

And Joyce Chng's books, of course. Singaporean werewolves in space!
