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!

A Merry Pompompurin Christmas in Hong Kong!

Living in Hong Kong means you may stumble upon kawaii characters and events, even when you least expect it, and we have just found another example of this:  A giant Pompompurin about 5 meters tall is now on display at Tsuen Wan Plaza! 

Did you know that this huge dog mascot is named Purin after a Japanese pudding?  The brown beret on top of his golden head resembles the caramel in a flan!  As any other retriever dog, he is very friendly, loves going out for walks, eating, napping…and hiding some of his owners’ shoes in his secret stash 🙂

Check out some delightful images of the Pompompurin display that can be explored until January 1st, 2019, taken from the All About Hong Kong facebook page.  And, of course, a few more pictures of cute Pompompurin items available in our shop!

Are you fond of dogs?  Golden retrievers are wonderful pets to have around, they are so playful and smart!  Which dog breed is your favourite? 

That is one big Pompompurin display!

Halloween with Sanrio at Ocean Park Hong Kong

We just had to tell you about this awesome event that no doubt will draw most fans of kawaii things, living in Hong Kong!  This year, Sanrio has partnered with one of the largest theme parks in the city to celebrate Halloween!  In past years, Ocean Park Hong Kong has held the largest Halloween events in Asia, so we can easily imagine that this Hello-ween Fest will be lots of fun!

The popular Sanrio characters we all know so well will be there to meet visitors, and join in some activities mainly designed for kids.  Of course, they are all dressed up in exclusive Halloween costumes!  There is also a Sanrio themed restaurant, where incredibly cute and elaborate Halloween treats featuring their much loved characters will be served.

This first-ever Sanrio Halloween party at Ocean Park is already under way, and the premises are full of decorations and displays inspired by Hello Kitty, Kuromi, Gudetama, Pompompurin etc.  We found some great pictures of the event, and we simply had to share them with you! Take a look at the images below, and let us know which you liked best!
