Cute Moomin exhibition in Hong Kong

Do you know the Moomins? They are the cute main characters of a Scandinavian book and comic series and currently the heroes of a promotion in the Hong Kong shopping mall The One. In The One x Moomin Summer Train Journey there are lots of cute photo opportunities revolving around the white hippos and the other main characters. As usual people in Hong Kong go crazy about everything cute they can take a picture with, so no matter when you pass the exhibition, there will always be plenty of people.

The train design is really adorable and quite lavish. We think it creates a cute cozy atmosphere and totally enjoyed looking at all the details on that train.

Some are related to everyday life, for example to wear loose, white clothes during summer or rather open the windows for ventilation instead of fans and air-cons.

Huge rubber duck in Hong Kong Harbour

You might have seen it on the news already, Hong Kong has a very special visitor. A 16 meter tall yellow rubber duck is floating in Victoria Harbour and it did not just attract media from all over the world, but also thousands of Hong Kongers and tourists. We also wanted to look at this piece of art created by the Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, but it’s not an easy task. Although everybody can go and visit the duck, it is celebrated like a pop star. We almost couldn’t get through to it, as there were hundreds or even thousands of people surrounding it taking pictures.

Fortunately it still stays in Hong Kong until June 6th, so we hop to catch a time with less people.

Inflatable art exhibition in Hong Kong

A couple of days ago a new free art exhibition started in Hong Kong. The exhibition Mobile M+: Inflation centers around huge inflatable objects designed by different artists from Asia, the USA and the UK and was already in the news all over the world. We checked it out too and it’s definitely something we haven’t seen before. Usually you see a lot of cute and kawaii exhibitions in Hong Kong, but this one rather revolves around unusual objects like roasted pigs, cockroaches or Stonehenge.

It was super interesting to check out the sculptures, especially as some even were accessible for the spectator. You could for example line up to jump a bit on the gigantic Stonehenge exhibit, which was basically a big bouncing castle. You could also walk into the belly of the roasted pig and see the rib cage as well as inflatable bacon cushions.

What do you think about the exhibition?  Would you have visited?

Rilakkum egg kitchen at 7-Eleven stores in Hong Kong

San-X seems to be very pleased with the partnership with Hong Kong’s convenience store 7-Eleven. They have just started another promotion throughout Hong Kong which is all about the Rilakkuma egg kitchen collection. You get one of the kawaii Rilakkuma egg products like purses, passport holders, pouches, plush charms and so on, once you have collected 16 little stickers (you get one for every purchase worth 20 HKD).

Especially the little pouches look super cute, the chicken outfits of Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori suit them very well. We’ll have lots of items from the Rilakkuma egg kitchen collection in our shop very soon, as we got quite a few in our last delivery.

Funny Bunny exhibition in Hong Kong mall

Easter is over already, but we still want to show you a couple of pictures from this super cute exhibition we discovered in the Hong Kong Miramar Shopping Centre. It’s all about the funny bright pink MiRabbit who hides in different spots of the mall. The highlight of the exhibition can’t be hidden very well though, because it is a super huge pink sofa in the shape of the bunny. Isn’t that adorable? People are invited to chill out on the sofa and they really do, which is quite a cool sight. You can’t get to wild though and jump on the sofa, as there is a security man who makes sure that everybody behaves.

We want that sofa for our office!

Rilakkuma at Hong Kong Marathon

On Sunday 72,000 people participated in the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2013 through Hong Kong. One of them was Rilakkuma! To be honest, we did not expect to see him there as he is such a lazy bear and you have to be in very good shape to run a marathon. But in the end we were right, the lazy bear rather posed for pictures and TV cameras than focusing on the marathon. He is a lazy bear after all!

There were lots of people in funny costumes participating in the marathon, but of course Rilakkuma was the most popular character in the spotlight.
