Conferences and Events

Experiencing Queensland

Before I do a detailed narrative of the experiences I had during the conference (again if I find the time to do this), I thought that this photo blog would be a pleasant change from the text-filled posts that I usually do, and this would at least show that even academics can chill and enjoy the pleasant Brisbane summer air on occasion.

Between taking the bus or the ferry - I shall ride this one any time of the day. The beautiful stars, the cool breeze, and the wind whipping through my hair - I am surprised at myself for not taking the trip back and then back again. Now I deeply regret not doing it, since our ticket is valid for two hours anyway. That would have been one of the most pleasant two-hours of my life.
Our Artist on Chill Mode (our presentation is finished at this point) - perfect time to relax
With only two hours of sleep yet still brimming with joy and enthusiasm... must be the galaxies and the night stars
Our theoretical linguist
Just plain lovely (I don't even know what this is)
With color this time around
Our very own 'simpleng musikero' (Simple Musician)
Wondering about the meaning of it all
Semantics and Soul in Brisbane

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
