I’m still a Hello Kitty fan.

Easing some of the disappointment from not getting the chance to visit the Toyota History Garage was this HELLO KITTY shop! Or rather, it was called Hello Kitty Kawaii Paradise…

It’s located right across the Toyota City showcase at MegaWeb so there’s no missing it. It’s a perfect combination too, as your wife and kids, or the girlfriend, can go ooh and aah over the mouthless cat while you go and ooh and aah over cars.

If they are done early, they can have afternoon tea at the Hello Kitty Pancake Party cafe:

I had lunch before coming to this so I wasn’t feeling hungry, but the Hello Kitty pancakes sure looked interestingly cute!

The Hello Kitty shop is not the biggest that I have been to, but it was enough to make me dizzy.

Miraculously, I bought NOTHING from the store. I did linger at the car accessories section for a while though – grin. There are so many Hello Kitty things now – on cosmetics, cross-dressed with Sesame Street and more more more collaborations. It’s quite scary seeing how Hello Kitty has grown so far and wide and managed to partner up with brands you never thought they would. More than once, I’ve found myself going, “WHAT? This one also has Hello Kitty on it?!”

But there is something magical about this cat that keeps us crazy about it, even as adults! My late grandmother liked Hello Kitty too!! I know Hello Kitty and fast cars don’t really go (omg imagine Hello Kitty sponsoring a racing team/driver/car and the cars/uniforms/racing suits will all bear the Hello Kitty logo!) but that’s how extreme my likes get. I love pink and Hello Kitty and glitter and bling bling, but I also love speed, motorsports and zoom zoom!
