Pinklloween Halloween spider in Hong Kong

If you’re afraid of spiders you might not like this installation. Throughout the whole month of October you could visit gigantic hot pink spiders in Miramar Shopping Centre and Mira Mall in Hong Kong. They are part of Pinklloween and not only build up the anticipation for Halloween but also raise awareness to breast cancer, as October is breast cancer awareness month. And let’s be honest – they don’t look that scary. Do you like them?

Little Twin Stars Pop-up Cafe in Hong Kong

Just a couple of weeks ago you could visit the cute My Melody & Kuromi Pop-up Cafe in Hong Kong’s shopping mall Langham Place. Now the Sanrio Star Dining campaign puts the Little Twin Stars in the spotlight. The 100 Bites Cafe was transformed into the Little Twin Stars Pop-up Cafe and will keep the theme until October 31st. The decoration of the cafe interior as well as the special food in Little Twin Stars style look super kawaii.

Mid-Autumn Festival toy lanterns in Hong Kong

Mid-Autumn Festival is already over, but we haven’t shown you all our pictures yet. And as the mid-autumn lanterns in Hong Kong are always so pretty and colorful – it would be a shame not to show them. This year’s theme of the main lantern display in Hong Kong’s Victoria Park was childhood memory toys.

World in Colours Mid-Autumn Lanterns in Hong Kong

It’s time for lanterns and mooncakes again. The Mid-Autumn Festival is coming up in Hong Kong and you can find beautiful lantern installations throughout the city. We already visited the World in Colours display in the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza in Tsim Sha Tsui. The lanterns show people from all around the world. Even though it is quite stereotypical and sometimes also political incorrect the lanterns still look pretty.

Sanrio Star Chef Institute exhibition in Hong Kong

Langham Place has done it again. The shopping mall in Hong Kong’s district Mong Kok has been hosting Hello Kitty / Sanrio character themed exhibitions for a while  and is currently running the Sanrio Star Chef Institute exhibition. Some of the most well-known Sanrio characters have their own little stations in this display, which is all about being or becoming a professional chef. The different parts are really great. Dear Daniel and Hello Kitty welcome visitors at the entrance of the Institute and there is a hallway which shows their chef certificates. My Melody waters the strawberries in the greenhouse while Kuromi and friends are experimenting in the food lab. Bad Badtz-Maru seems to be a famous star chef or teacher who has his own cooking show which is filmed by seal Hana-Maru. The Little Twin Stars are in charge of lectures about how to make drinks.

If you visit the exhibition you should definitely go to the upper levels of the mall, as there are many more exhibits to be found like the cool Hello Kitty ice cream truck or the cool hanging Sanrio sweets exhibits.

My Melody & Kuromi Pop-up Cafe in Hong Kong

Currently you can visit a My Melody & Kuromi Pop-up Cafe in Hong Kong’s shopping mall Langham Place. The Cafe ishiyaki+ was transformed into the My Melody cafe and will keep the theme until September 14th, 2014.  The Pop-up Cafe is part of the Sanrio Star Dining campaign which we will introduce further soon.

There are incredibly long lines for the cafe, so we didn’t eat there ourselves. The whole restaurant is decorated with My Melody and Kuromi designs and of course the food is too. There is a lunch menu, a high tea menu and a dinner menu which all contain some food sets with the designs of the Sanrio characters.

Hello Kitty Organic Farm in Hong Kong

Do you want to farm with Hello Kitty? In Hong Kong you can do so, because there is an actual Hello Kitty farm. The organic farm Go Green Organic Farm teamed up with Sanrio and is now the Hello Kitty Go Green Organic Farm.

It is located in Yuen Long, in the New Territories of Hong Kong. You can visit the farm and even join programs to learn how to farm and get in touch with nature. There are various Hello Kitty decorations throughout the farm, you can collect Hello Kitty stamps in a booklet and purchase Hello Kitty merchandise like plush scarecrows or flower pots. The farm has a cafe, you can pet animals, buy herbs and learn about farming. And don’t forget taking pictures with the cute Hello Kitty decorations is also important.

The cute farm designs totally remind us of the cute Hello Kitty Farm Life Re-Ment that we just added to our shop. We haven’t visited the farm ourselves so far, so we borrowed all the pictures from the Hello Kitty Go Green Organic Farm Facebook site where you also find information like the opening times, address and more.

Play 4 Keeps Hello Kitty X Giordano collection in Hong Kong

Hong Kong based retailer Giordano teamed up with Sanrio and released the collection Play 4 Keeps Hello Kitty X Giordano. It’s a sports collection but can also be worn as casual apparel. There are lots of T-Shirts, crop tops and light jackets that are perfect for working out. So it’s no surprise that Stephanie Au and Ng Ka Fung – two Hong Kong athletes – are involved in the advertising campaign.

There are also Pop-up stores in Hong Kong that are dedicated to this collection. How do you like it? We really love the simple but classic Hello Kitty designs.
