Ping Pong Pig and I visited the Asia Society yesterday for a lovely afternoon with some scrumptious kids, mums, dads and some fabulous grandmas! We had so much shouting to that plump little pig to “Run Pig Run!” or “Stay Pig Stay!” as the Minister of Most Important Things tried to track her down, and winning mini-pandas during my quiz! And the kids really learned their Ming Dynasty history too, with some impressively accurate answers to some of my tricky questions! Many thanks to the lovely Pauline Wong who hosted me for the event, and to CEO Alice Mong for asking me in!

Asia Society event #1

A big thank you to Asia Society Hong Kong’s Executive Director Alice Mong (second to my right) and Head of Programs (Arts and Culture) Winsome Tam (first to my right) for hosting a fabulous story reading event at Asia Society yesterday in conjunction with RoomtoRead, for me and my shy Rodney Ram! We had a fun, interactive story reading with a whole lot of kids, mums and dads, together with a tricky quiz for young and old with mini-panda prizes, some gorgeous colouring-in sheets by Harry Harrison to keep the kids busy before and afterwards, and wonderful speeches from Alice and the lovely Helen Van der Zalm from RoomtoRead (third to my right). It was a great honour to do an event at such a great Hong Kong institution, while representing such an exceptional children’s charity. Don’t forget to visit their websites at:
