[AFCC 2013] Asian Festival of Children’s Content 2013 – One Big Story!

I can hardly believe it! Just two more weeks till I fly to Singapore to participate in the 2013 Asian Festival of Children’s Content. It will be an opportunity of a lifetime. I will definitely take LOTS of pictures and keep a journal of my adventure so I can share with all of you when I get back.

I’m reblogging a fantastic post about it from Myra over at Gathering Books.

And I just found out that Erik, from This Kid Reviews Books, is going to be part of the event via Skype…congratulations, Erik…that is FANTASTIC!

  1. How exciting! Yes, please do take lots of pictures.

    That’s amazing, Vivian! Have a wonderful time. I can’t wait to hear all about it.


    • It’s getting closer and closer and I am getting more and more excited…and a tad nervous.:) But I know it will be great, Catherine…there are some fantastic speakers and programs on the menu…I plan to attend quite a few of the presentations when I am not speaking. 🙂


  3. You sure have traveled a bunch this spring:
    home -> chicago -> home -> singapore -> home -> chicago -> new hampshire -> home.

    Have a superb time, Vivian! Definitely take photos to share. And enjoy every minute!


  4. Too bad I’m not flying there… I can’t wait! It’s so great that you will be there too! WOO!


  5. Can’t wait to hear all about your exciting adventure, Vivian! 🙂
    I like your new blog format.


    • Glad you like it, Tracy! I think it is better than it was…more engaging and personal…but it still has a way to go…and I still need to add back all of the blog buttons of my friends. 🙂 It had just gotten too busy and distracting…kind of a jumble.The trip is just around the corner…tonight I will go through my closet and pick what I am taking…I like to travel light…but just found out that there are evening events every night to which I am invited…I had planned on taking only 1 dress…my daughter was horrified. 🙂 🙂 So I guess I will see what else I have to add.


  6. Hi Erik!
    Thanks so much for linking up…exciting events to be sure. 🙂
