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: – for must-do cultural events in Hong Kong for the whole family and – to see how you and your family can help make the world a better, safer place for everyone by promoting children’s literacy.
