Gudetama ‘Eggs-hibition’ and store in Hong Kong.

Say hello to Gudetama, one of Sanrio‘s new characters. This year the lazy little egg came out of his shell to surprise customers in Hong Kong’s busy shopping area Mong Kok. Together with a pop-up store, fans can explore truly ‘egg-cellent’ exhibits, including a kawaii Gudetama themed bakery, a commuter train and Japanese restaurants. As the pictures from the Hong Kong website unwire show, there are also some special limited edition products on sale until September. However, fans of Gudetama and Hello Kitty don’t need to go egg-hunting, but can find their favorite Sanrio characters at modes4u.

First Hello Kitty Dim Sum Restaurant opens in Hong Kong

You all know there are Hello Kitty inspired cafes, but you will be surprised to hear you can now feast on amazingly cute looking dumplings, steamed buns and Chinese pastries in the world’s first Hello Kitty Dim Sum Restaurant in Hong Kong. We found many pictures on L.A. times online and culture blogs, showing that just like the little white cat, the traditional Southern Chinese dish has become increasingly popular around the world in recent years. In particular in Hong Kong the original dim sum houses are a weekly ritual family meal, usually taken on weekend mornings. For Hello Kitty fans and lovers of Asian cuisine alike, there could hardly be a better way to spend a Sunday morning than a table of delicious steamed buns and tea with friends and family. The only challenge remaining is, the food nearly looks too cute to eat.

New Sanrio friends and Hello Kitty fabrics in our shop

Great news for all fans of Hello Kitty, My Melody and Little Twin Stars.  We received cute new Sanrio fabrics and the little white cat brought along new friends. Meet Kirimi-chan the cute Salmon fillet and Gudetama the lazy egg. At first glimpse they may not seem as kawaii and cuddly as her other pals, but their authenticity makes up for it. Tasty looking Kirimi-chan was introduced after Sanrio fans hungry for more, voted her ‘most wanted character‘, while no other egg in the world can reflect our unmotivated mood like inert Gudetama. Therefore, we are convinced that this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Kawaii Doll Festival with Hello Kitty cakes

Today is a special day for all little girls in Japan. It’s ‘Hinamatsuri‘ or Doll Festival. This lovely celebration is not so well known outside of Japan and the counterpart to Children’s Day in May, when families celebrate their boy’s well-being.
The doll theme is also taken up by many shops, just like this Tokyo based bakery that sells cute cakes with doll decoration and adorable Hello Kitty designs. For boys and girls, this is an irresistible feast for the eyes.
