Jojo Eats Dim Sum Giveaway (CLOSED)

JoJo Eats Dim Sum
JoJo Eats Dim Sum pictures (4 of 4)

The winners are Lisa H, Aislinn M, Joy A.

In my previous life, I worked in the largest gaming media company in the world, and I came to know James Kye, a good ex-colleague of mine. I was based in Southern California while James worked at the corporate headquarters in San Francisco. Whenever I went up there on business trips, James and I would always go eat dim sum together. Both of us shared the same huge passion for really good food…

Fast forward many years, I am now a mother and James has become a children book author. He started his “Jojo Eats” series with “Jojo Eats Dim Sum“—a delightful, fun, and educational picture book with the aim of introducing children to the joys of enjoying Cantonese dim sum!  (Click the above gallery to view the inside pages.) I can’t wait for the next installment in Jojo’s culinary explorations: Jojo Eats Korean Barbeque, Jojo Eats Sushi, Jojo Eats Indian Veggie, and more!

The book is a perfect fit for Rasa Malaysia and its readers, and the good news is that James is kind enough to offer three (3) copies of “Jojo Eats Dim Sum” as a giveaway.
