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.

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.
