    Thanks for sharing! I love the pictures and the “behind the scenes” info. That is very cool, Jocelyn!

    But wait a minute. You say getting along with a Chinese mother-in-law NEVER gets easier?! Not cool, Jocelyn. Not cool.

    Please lie about this topic next time.

    Congratulations on a sold-out event. It sounds like the festival was an excellent experience. You hair looks gorgeous–all shiny and wavy. So sorry you ended up with the flu.

    Good job Jocelyn! I really hope one day I will have a chance to meet you in real life too. Any literary festival in Taiwan anytime soon?

    I am so happy to hear that all went well and the event was sold out! It must have been very nice to speak about a topic that you feel so passionate about. Plus, you got to meet so many great people!! I am so glad you enjoyed yourself.

    Feel better soon!

    You look fab! Your hair is beautiful!!

    I was actually in Beijing that same weekend, I told Oda on instagram, but I went for my friend’s “birthday weekend” so I didn’t have a chance to meet you guys. Next time! 🙂

    PS. Do you think Beijing’s horrible weather had something to do with you catching the flu? There was a sandstorm that Saturday and I was sneezing all the time, blerg.

    Jocelyn sure looks fantastic.

    I miss seeing women with those trendy outfit. They sure look good on you.

    Here, you’re seeing tons of tons of women with leggings, sometimes you even see the butt crack. I’m speechless.

    WOW! I wish I could have gone to see you speak!! Your hair looks amazing and wow, it does sound like a whirlwind of a weekend. Do you think this will be an annual thing? Maybe one day I can time it right and stop by 😉
