 experts discussed the relationship between exercise and cancer, while correcting many fallacies and misconceptions about health. While the adults learnt about health- related topics, it was story time for the young readers. Representatives from the UNHCR, Suzanne and Carrie, told the tale of Nadima 2. The young readers in attendance were enraptured and many were also eager to participate in the quiz segment to win themselves small gifts! The liveliest moment at HKBF 2022 belonged to Yoki Tong, the first author to release their 2023 Year of the Rabbit fortune almanac. Not only did she teach everyone how to use the brand new Yoki Tong’s 2023 Year of the Rabbit Fortune Calendar, she also gave feng shui tips, such as the most suitable foods for people with a cold disposition or the best activities for people with a hot disposition, to boost their fortunes. Book Treasure Hunt As this year’s HKBF was held during the school term, we planned some “extracurricular activities” for parents and children. World Publishing Company worked with The Salvation Army Lam Butt Chung Memorial School to hold a Book Treasure Hunt. With teachers leading students to visit our booth and the professional explanations provided by the editors, the students took on the roles of librarians, selecting books suitable for school libraries. The young librarians had a great time selecting books that should make their way to their school libraries in the next school year. With students able to borrow these carefully selected books, interest in reading will certainly grow! Taking It Online To give back to our customers, we prepared discounts and gifts for all booklovers from the very first day of the book fair. Those who could not visit the book fair were not left out, as we offered the same discounts online via the Very Popular Store ( operated by Kam Pui Enterprises and Smart English. New members of the Very Popular Store or subscribers to Seashore Publishing’s YouTube channel of recipes were all eligible to receive substantial free gifts. With the news spreading on social media platforms, many signed up, with the gifts having to be replenished again and again. We thank everyone for their support. Remember to check out our new ideas at next year’s HKBF!
