Behold, the 2011 Asian Festival of Children's Content Food Post

Saturday, June 4, 2011
Warning: This may make you hungry and make you want to visit Singapore for the next Asian Festival of Children's Content - which is exactly the point of this post. =D

Last week, I was in Singapore for the Asian Festival of Children's Content, and my first night there I had dinner with two beautiful and special ladies whom I (and the rest of the kidlitosphere!) have respected and admired for a long time.



PaperTigers is an important website, blog, and outreach program dedicated to promoting multicultural books and putting them in the hands of children and teens around the world. Aline Pereira is PaperTiger's former managing editor and producer, and Corinne Robson is the current associate editor and blog “Eventful World” coordinator.







Dinner was DELECTABLE, and I was so happy to meet Aline and Corinne in person!

Only one little guy was not happy about our dinner. Sorry, little guy.


The food in Singapore is fantastic and I can't blog about the Asian Festival of Children's Content without including my photo food diary:
























I miss the food in Singapore and can't wait till next year's festival!

Some of those dishes did look good, and yummy. But my upbringing reared its head at the head left on....some of us don't like to admit that we're eating real animals when we eat...:) I have to say that all the plates looked pretty - or at least striking with the arrangement (of the food on the plates). Amazing array.

It's nice that you were able to go to Singapore. Hope you make it there next year also. :)

Mardel, I wish you could have tasted that fish! So succulent and flavorful. :o)

Ken, you are so lucky you live in Singapore and Malaysia. You can eat this food anytime! Yum yum drooool!

That meal we had together was very memorable! I loved the white pepper crab–and the butter fish was also to die for! Your shot of the fish's head turned out great. He looks so mad! Hmm... Come to think of it, I don't like the idea of eating an angry fish. You don't suppose that could be a smile on his face, do you? : )

Aline, ooohhh, I checked the fish head picture again and yes, he IS smiling!!
