All the elements in a noun phrase except the noun are optional. If more than one of these elements appears, the order is fixed according to one of the following schemas:

1.associative phrase + classifier/measure phrase + relative clause + adjective + noun

2.associative phrase + relative clause + classifier/measure phrase + adjective + noun

Examples are shown below:

我的那个好朋友 (associative phrase + classifier phrase + adjective + noun)

我的那个住在美国的好朋友 (associative phrase + classifier phrase + relative clause + adjective + noun)
