Hi Everyone, Firstly thank you very, very much to those of you who have supported our newly-launched book: Expat Women: Confessions - 50 Answers to Your Real-Life Questions about Living Abroad!
A few of you have asked if we had a launch party for our book. The answer is yes. Sort of...
Okay, here's the confession (pardon the pun)... I live in Malaysia and my co-author Victoria Hepworth lives thousands of miles away in Dubai, so a joint launch on a limited budget was a little tricky.
So instead, I hijacked the first night of my dear friend Nan Singh's girls' getaway weekend (6-8 May) to a beach resort here in Malaysia, asked my friends to dress in black, happily gave them all a free copy of the hot-off-the-press book, in a pretty pink bag with Teuscher chocolates, and took some photos.
And so with this, yes, we had a small launch - and here are our photos! (Victoria was with us in spirit, as was Gisella Apicella.) Andrea x
