It took me awhile to update my blog since I got back from my Asian trip.
For one whole month, I traveled solo to Singapore, Bali, and The Philippines, except in Vietnam, where I joined Bart, my hubby,who was already there to meet me.
During my trip I had a wonderful time sketching, sight-seeing, meditating and meeting old as well as new friends in Bali, Cruising in a romantic small ship through Ha Long Bay in Vietnam with Bart, taking a nostalgic visit to the city of Singapore where we used to live for a year from 2006 -2007, and then finally, re-uniting with my family in The Philippines.
When I arrived in the States It took me almost 2 weeks to recuperate from my jetlag.
But..... I had artwork to do, new projects to start on and several Books and
Art events to attend to in New York City.
The Book Expo America 2009:
The first event I attended was the Book Expo America held at the Javitz Center in New York.
One of the books I've illustrated " From Our Mother's Hearth " published by Africa World Press
was exhibited at the previous Book Expo.
