John has done me another favour by recommending me to Izuan Shah of Youth 2. John must have done some PR as well because Izuan says that he has heard A LOT about me. Haha! I am glad that Izuan is keen in my project. He did not waste time before he starts researching about my topic even when he is still at the Penang TheStar office. He should be visiting for an interview one of these days. And that fact kept my eyes wide open last night, serious!! The sleepless night is also caused by excitement about the fact that I WILL get my book published. I hope the sleepless night doesn’t drag on or you’ll catch a Panda Yvonne in newspaper.
I have also submitted an article about my project to Albert from XFresh and the kind soul helped pass it on to those in-charge.
Cordy has ordered a set of 10 NF wristbands from The Children’s Tumor Foundation and I expect it to arrive sometime next week, hopefully BEFORE the interview. I am looking forward to sell it(not for profit) during my book launch and at any other events that is appropriate. The NF wristband is to support NF research, and in my case, to spread awareness about this genetic disorder. Ofcourse, 10 is not enough so I might order for more if all goes well. But I am also looking into ways of manufacturing it ourselves because shipping the wristbands from US is not cost effective. If you have any clues about silicone wristband manufacturers in Asia, please let me know. Thank you.
