    Excited to have another chance to enter in this drawing. China Elevator Stories is doing it too! All of these books sound quite intriguing.

    How do you have the chance to offer this?

    Hi Jocelyn!
    Ever since my daughter has married a Chinese man, I have been amazed with the AMWF community. I hope to learn more about it through your blog and through these wonderful books.

    I’ve never realized how big the AMWF community was, nor the multiplicity of experience there was, before discovering your blog. Thanks for sharing all these with us!

    Hi! My name is Gwynne, I have been reading your blog for quite a while but I have never commented before! I am very interested in Chinese culture and the Chinese language (I’m also dating a Chinese guy), and I love hearing about your experiences with Chinese culture and in China! Reading your interpretations and reactions to the things you see has made me better understand my own experiences as a foreigner in China and as a Chinese language learner. Thank you!

    Hi Jocelyn
    No better way to tell the story than the post we have in your blog.
    In China since 2011, in love since then. Officially married for 2 years and loving this life more and more every day.
    Despite all the stress of living in Shanghai and the pressure and working hours, we both manage to keep it together!

    This is great! Thank you for the opportunity. I wasn’t aware of how many books are out there regarding Asian men and non Asian women. It gives hope to women who are interested, me especially in AMBW couples. It’s not always very prominent in media and/or something that is seen every day.

    I just read “Year of the Fire Dragons” and it was great! I think I might read the other two now. Maybe I should see if I was the lucky winner first. . . .

    What a great giveaway! And two with a Japan focus… excellent.
    The question was to “share your own story of love and life abroad” so… way back in 2007, while living in Japan, I was introduced to my future hubby. Eyes glazed over, knees collapsed and barely breathing was how I remember our first meeting. While it took effort, persistence and ridiculous flirting to seal the deal, we were engaged 7 months later. And then I made him wait for almost a year before we got married. (Fall head over heels into gooey love first and then panic and be practical.) Of course, there is always more to any tale of romance and some day, I just might write about it. Now fingers crossed that I’m the lucky one to dive into the stories of three other women!

    What a interesting give away.

    I’m actually a follower of your blog for over a year, although this is my few times that I leave a comment.

    About my story, I’m a Hongkongese man living in HK with my wife (from the UK). Recently, we’ve started a new blog called the Globe Trotting Adventurer, which is basically a blog about our adventure as a couple.

    I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

    Wonderful! Talking about love and relationships gives some of the deepest insights into culture – from a perspective that has mutual acceptance and respect kind of inbuilt into it. One of my favourite ways to read about China and Asia 🙂
