Sanrio x 7-Eleven promotion in Hong Kong!

Chinese New Year is coming soon, so there are many stores and shops offering related products and promotions in Hong Kong!  There will be much merrymaking and celebration in February… we know for sure this will not be the last post we write about this special time of year!

You already know kawaii characters make lots of appearances around here, and we just found them again in a promotion by 7-Eleven and Sanrio!  The store offers an amazingly cute set of ceramic trays with flower-shaped bowls for redemption, featuring your favourite Sanrio characters like Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, My Melody, Little Twin Stars etc.

We think they would certainly look great anywhere, don’t you agree?  Take a look at the beautiful pictures taken from the All About Hong Kong facebook page, and let us know which of the bowls you like best!

Welcome to the art of kawaii food with Sanrio characters!

Another great thing about living in Hong Kong is that you may easily come across kawaii-themed food!  Here we show you some images of sweet treats and dishes featuring popular Sanrio characters, that we found on All About Hong Kong’s Facebook and Instagram pages.  Just take a look at the pictures below, don’t they look yummy and super cute?

As you see, some brands include Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, My Melody, Gudetama and friends in their food packages or as food decoration, while others unleash their creative cooking and baking abilities, shaping foods themselves as kawaii characters.

However, you do not need to be a professional cook or experienced patissier to give this a try.  You can easily prepare kawaii bentos that will look amazingly cute, and more so if you have some useful bento accessories.  There is a whole world of molds, cutters, seals, picks etc. available that will let you shape and decorate food.

Check out some of our bento accessories, and find the inspiration you need to get started on making your own kawaii food!

This is stunning!

Hong Kong shines under golden Christmas lights!

Christmas lights keep popping up everywhere around the city, here in Hong Kong!  We came across the beautiful display at Starstreet Precinct, in Wan Chai, and just had to share it with you! 

Of course, there are huge beaming Christmas trees, and gorgeous large hangings made of a zillion tiny lights… but this time, the cutest reindeers made of gold-color lit wiring are the highlight of the installation! 

Golden decorations, objects, lights etc., give a luxurious and warm look to any scenery, and sparkle like none other. After all, gold has always been considered the king of metals.

Take a look at the pictures below, which include an image of the golden lights adorning the Peninsula Hotel, too.  We found them on the All About Hong Kong Facebook page.  Which ones do you like best?  Let us know!
