CHINESE NAMES FOR THE CHINESE QUEST*

MANDARIN CHINESE

中國的追求

Named by Jenny Jade

(*Based on your interests and the sounds of your Cantonese names)

 

Jenny Jade, author of “Chinese Food at Home“, a cookbook of her own Chinese recipes, and a frequent contributor of Chinese recipes to The Chinese Quest, took it upon herself to dub the members of The Chinese Quest with official Mandarin Chinese names.  She was also gracious enough to include the meanings of each name.  Each name was carefully crafted by Jenny to match their personalities and style.  We are honored to dubbed with these names.  It makes us feel Royal.

Inquiring minds do want to know! A few weeks ago I asked for eyes on the street to let us what is going on with Jade Asian. Would also like to know what’s going on with the Chinese restaurant that was “Spicy & Tasty”.
