On the 26th June 2019, I was invited to the launch of the very first U.S. Fries Fiesta in Kota Kinabalu by the Potatoes USA. The event started with guest registration and we are given a free sample of U.S. Fries to munch while we are listening to the honorable guest speeches. It begins with the Potatoes USA Country representative’s speech and then by the representative from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Last but not least, the event is officially launched by our very own Y.B Datuk Wong Hong Jun, Minister of Agriculture and Food Sabah.
