♥ Hello Kitty Town, JB

"Every little girl or teenagers wish list to make that pilgrimage to the very first Hello Kitty Town in Johor, Malaysia."
3360_10151421356008665_1404512086_n
When I heard that there'll be the very first Sanrio Hello Kitty Town in Johor, Malaysia, I told myself I would definately go there! Even if it's small or not up to expectations, who cares? I have to make a trip (or more) down personally to take a look! Soaking up the cuteness atmosphere, it's probably a dream come true for all hellokitty fans alike. And, before I fulfill my wildest dream of visiting the real Sanrio Puroland theme park in Japan, this Sanrio Hello Kitty Indoor Theme Park would be a good headstart. Headstart training for me first, ahems, because I think I'll die of cuteness overload when i get to Puroland the next time!

It's very easy to spot this place. Some red building, yeah you more or less know you've arrived at the right place. Can't miss it, it's very obvious amongst the trees and seas.

12:30 LUNCHTIME
Settled down at Red Bow Cafe for a quick lunch, however the food choices was really limited. Plus, it's mostly packed food which doesn't look or taste appetizing. Thankfully, we weren't really hungry and just needed some food to fill our tummies.

I was in love with the cute bow themed tables & chairs. Was very tempted to shift them back HOME, my home. Put it in my room, how nice would that be, right?

Lunch Choices
The jelly pudding was probably the only food item there that was really kitty themed. The other packed food looks very much like normal food which ain't kitty shaped or so.

Bytheway, in terms of food choices, just wanted to point out that besides the Red Bow cafe situated outside the indoor themepark, there's Cinnamon cafe inside as well (see below)

The activities generally are quite idiot-proof. Just go according to instructions given and you'll be fine. Amongst all, I loved Hello Kitty's house best! A must go! Take a look at her living room, bedrooms, bathroom & kitchen. I was so tempted to take the things out of her house & bring it back to my own home! #justsaying
For photography, no worries. Hello Kitty lovers like me, will definately find something somewhere to take pictures with/of. Because, really, although the place is small, it was relatively filled with Hello Kitty all around! Every angle, even if it's not Hello Kitty, it's her cute little Sanrio friends. Feel free to take pictures with them too!

We were so glad we went on a weekday & it so happened to be the first day start of school for most kids... & that means.... VERY LITTLE PEOPLE & NO QUEUE! #blessed. Because we didn't have to queue up for most things (Even if there was a queue, the most 10mins & it moved quite fast!) and that the workers there tend to be less angsty aka nicer to us. #veryhappygirls!26006_10151421349428665_579331780_n

Insanely Creative...

Let's move into Wishful Studios, where you get to do manicure and decorate kitty-faced cookies.

MANICURE MANICURE NAILTIME
 To my dismay, there were no manicurists in there :(
For the little children, their mummies were the manicurists...
Twinny & I skipped this station because we already had pretty manicured nails. YAY. So, we just chopped our cards and used them to exchange for the given nailart stickers... great, we could totally DIY in future

"When you'r in Rome, do what the Romans do", when you'r in the land of cuteness, do what everyone else does... heh, acting cute in the land of cuteness, don't mind us :/

Quickly, we moved on to the Cookie Station.

Each of us were given a plate filled with a kitty head shape butter cookie. For some people, they just ate the kitty up without decorating. I... happen... to be... the opposite. I decorated it without eating it. hahaha! Actually, I think it looks better without decorations, or maybe I suck at doing so. But somehow, my kitty looked like it was bleeding or something. Ewww!

The selection is really bad, oh, wait, there was NO selection AT ALL.
To my dismay, we were just given a bracelet chain & Hello Kitty face charm.19528_10151421352743665_463804902_n

Sigh, I was expecting to get many pretty charms so I can put them all together to form something nicer! Nevertheless, the kitty face charm was simple and nice. And, the station was verymuch idiot proof, all we needed to do was to hook the charm onto the chain and tada *done*!

KITTY'S 'PURRFECT' STAGE
Watched another performance about HK’s journey across different countries. Overall was quite vibrant in terms of energy, just that it was too kiddish-ly cliche so I skipped half the performance.
Ohyes! While we were there, we saw a couple having their wedding photoshoot. EH LIKE IDEA LEH! hahha, what an inspiration! *wishful thinkings* I'll want to do that in future too... AWWW! They were super cute, I swear!

And so, the whole experience at Hello Kitty Town ended earlier than expected. Thankgod for short queues, really. Thus to kill time before dinner, we decided to head to the JB Premier Outlets for some shopping. Conclusion, go during non-peak period!

Went off to shop after eating such a full meal. Then somehow, we walked pass this CREPE stall which I mentioned to Twinny that it's good (saw people eating it before). It's really huge and the crepe itself, is the crispy kind, not the soggy ones... that's why I like it better ^^
