How amazing was I when I found out about this exhibition being held in Hong Kong. Since I am a child, I've been reading over and over again Le Petit Prince. Every time learning and discovering new insights on life and relationships.

Patricia and I checked the exhibition out last sunday and we had such a great time. I think it's so amazing that such an exhibition would be displayed in a shopping mall, free for everyone to have a look at and educate themselves. They also organized some workshops such as paper rose making and key chains making. They show some status of the most memorable characters of the book, as well as sharing quotes of the book both in English and Chinese. Giving some biographic informations about Antoine de St Expery and displaying some of his artwork, which I'm completely in love with. His lines are so gently and innocent.
If you haven't read the book, I can't help but definitely advice you to do so, and to share it with your friends and family. It's quite short so even the laziest reader can read it. It also use very simple vocabulary so it won't be hard to understand the first levels of understand. This book has to be read with the heart and will have a very personal meaning to each reader.
It really leaves spaces for interpretation and will leave a light and well being feeling page after page.
I read it again the past fews nights, and I focused a lot on the relationship thoughts of the book. How important and precious relationship are to Man. That's all we have and without them, Life can be a pretty scary and lonely thing. We should care for one another, and keep on watering our garden. Some people get lazy or distracted by relationships, because they require a lot of hard work and effort. You have to invest in them, so sometimes they would simply give up, and have meaningless interactions with people. But the reward and the joy of a strong feeling of understanding and belonging with someone is so much greater.
