Halloween at Disneyland Hong Kong!

We feel really lucky to be living in Hong Kong.  There is always so much to see and do in such a big, big city! 

This season of the year is one of those especially lucky times, because we love Disney characters and greatly enjoy Halloween. Behold!  It’s Disney Halloween Time at Disneyland Hong Kong!

You can breathe and feel the season in all facilities, hotels, restaurants and gardens inside Disneyland Hong Kong.  Everything is Halloween-themed, from decoration to dishes, as well as many activities planned for families.  These include parades, games, costumes and make-up, and meetings with the most popular Disney characters, dressed up in exclusive Halloween costumes! 

For the bravest visitors, and/or fans of The Nightmare Before Christmas, two spookastic activities are available – if you dare!!  A terrific Journey to Halloween Town, with Jack Skellington and friends, and a Villains Night Out with the wickedest Disney villains creating mayhem!

We found some great pictures of the event on the Disneyland Hong Kong website, just take a look below, and enjoy!  Have you got a favorite Disney character?  Do let us know!

Rilakkuma promotion at 7-Eleven Hong Kong!

Did you know that Rilakkuma turned 15 this fall?  In order to celebrate his birthday, 7-Eleven stores in Hong Kong are offering a promotion during October, with some very cute items featuring this most kawaii of toy bears and his friends Korilakkuma, Kiiroitori and Kogumachan! 

Check out some images of the Rilakkuma products available for redemption, which include mini bags in four different designs, one for each San-X character of the series.  They are made of silicone, which is both soft and sturdy, and look really cool: you can wear them on your wrist or carry them in a bag. 

Other amazing items included in the promotion are big Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma plush toys, where our favourite lazy bear and his mischievous friend lay on their tummies, a honey jar and picnic bag within easy reach!

Are you new to Rilakkuma?  Welcome to one of the most popular characters in Japan!  San-X‘s Aki Kondo created this ever-chilled-out toy bear in 2003, while hoping for a more relaxing life.  It quickly became a hit, and the “Relax bear” has since appeared in picture books, games, cartoons etc.  Have you ever felt the need to slow down, too?

We are loving the items of this promotion! Image courtesy of 7-Eleven
