Pin Yin Panda rules at GSIS!

Hello to all you GSIS believers…it’s the Year of the Panda…RIGHT!! Today Pin Yin totally convinced the Primary School kids that it was HER year this year…or was it just the promise of free bookmarks? Bribery will get a panda anywhere…. A big thank you to the very funny and fabulous Megan Lindsay, Head of Library, and her wonderful assistant Stella Tong!

And here are some of the GSIS kids – and a ghost!!!

Thank you Quarry Bay School!

Or at least Pin Yin Panda thinks it is! Pin Yin and I had a fantastic day today with all the fabulous kids and teachers of Renaissance College HK, from their gorgeous Grade 1s, all the way to their savvy Grade 6s! Here are some of my lovely fans who tracked me down in the library for some autographs!:

And here is the lovely Ada, one of the library team who looked after me all day, and now knows Pin Yin’s story by heart! Ada featured Pin Yin Panda on her storyboard honouring Risk Takers!

Last but never least are the Library Team themselves, headed by my dear friend Andrea Walker – thanks for such a happy, warm Renaissance College welcome!

Panda on Abbey Road!

My panda Pandora (Pin Yin’s English cousin) is a mad keen Beatles fan! So as we left the American School in London and St John’s Wood, she couldn’t resist a visit to the Beatles stamping grounds just around the corner! Here she is at the famous Abbey Road Recording Studios where the Beatles recorded so many of their hit records:

And crossing the road with her mum, just like the Fab Four on THAT album cover!
