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!

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.
