Hello Kitty Terminal in Taipei! 

Hello Kitty Terminal in Taipei! 

Taking the Hello Kitty Eva Air Jet to Tokyo  meant a layover in Taipei, Taiwan! Located at Terminal 2 of the Taoyaun International Airport is the Hello Kitty Terminal. For a Hello Kitty fan like me, it was instant Hello Kitty heaven the moment I saw it.

The first thing one sees is the bright pink Sanrio store.

There is a lovely display of the cutest Hello Kitty goods including some exclusive Taiwan Sanrio items.

There is also one giant Hello Kitty Aviator statue right up front.

The Hello Kitty Aviator seems to be the mascot of the terminal as she appears everywhere from the decor on the walls to plushes sold.

Next to the Sanrio store is the waiting area for the terminal. It includes bright pink seats as well as two play areas for children. It also has a “rainbow” step carpet with a tv that is playing a Hello Kitty cartoon.

I love all the details of the terminal. The walls are super kawaii.

I also like the circular windows that feature Hello Kitty Aviator in different poses.

The Hello a Kitty Terminal was the perfect terminal to make a stop during my Hello Kitty dream trip.

For more smiles, please see my Yelp review on the Hello Kitty Gift Gate at the Hello Kitty Terminal in Taipei.

Hello Crème Shop x Sanrio!

Hello Crème Shop x Sanrio!

Today is a very special day! October 1, 2018 marks the launch of the very first collaborative collection of skincare and beauty products by Crème Shop and Sanrio!

This collection includes a total of 51 items and each will feature one of our favorite Sanrio characters; Hello Kitty, Keroppi, Gudetama or Chococat!

One of my favorite items from this collection is the Hello Kitty Handy Dandy Cream in Apple Blossom!

I’m always on the go during my Hello Kitty Foodie adventures and this cream made with Shea butter and Vitamin E is great for helping the skin feel nourished throughout the day! I love the touch of rose and apple too.

Another amazing product is the Gudetama macaron lip balm!

There’s nothing meh about this lip balm. It’s perfect for keeping lips soft and decadent; just like a macaron.

As the day wraps up and my Hello Kitty Foodie adventures come to an end; I simply want to relax. This is right time for the Hello Kitty tea time sheet mask.

This is a black tea sheet mask that is rich with antioxidants. It’s great for moisturizing.

Prices for this collection range from $4 for the face masks to $10 for the hand creams. The collection is currently available online at Sanrio and at Crème Shop. It is also available at Sanrio Japanese Village. Mid-October it will be available as well at Hot Topic and Riley Rose and next January 2019 we will see it at CVS, Dolls Kill, FYE and Cost Plus.

Hello Aggretsuko Season 2!

Hello Aggretsuko Season 2!

Back in April of this year, I shared the happy news about our favorite Sanrio Panda, Aggretsuko getting her very own Netflix show. Throughout season 1 of Aggretsuko; we all laughed, cried and raged on with Aggretsuko.

img_2061

I know when the first season ended, I was about to go through my own rage session…how could this cool show end? Well, thankfully there’s no need to go to into the Den of Rage and have a raging karaoke session because Aggetsuko will be back for Season 2 on Netflix in 2019!

img_2857

During this year’s Anime Expo, Sanrio and Netflix,  made the exciting announcement that there will be a season 2 coming this 2019. There’s already a teaser for season 2 which can be seen: here.

When Aggretsuko made her global debut on Netflix on April 20, 2018; we all fell in love with her day-to-day story as an office associate in the accounting department of a trading company in Tokyo. We were a part of her journey as she faced daily stresses and conflicts in a comical way.

Season 1 streamed on Netflix worldwide, was dubbed in 8 languages including English, Chinese, Spanish and subtitled in 23 languages including Chinese, Korean, English and Spanish.

This season 2 expect to laugh a little more, relate even more and rage on and on because Aggetsuko is back to grind!

Hello Aggretsuko’s Den of Rage!

Hello Aggretsuko’s Den of Rage!

Just recently I wrote on this blog a post about the new animated Netflix series, Aggretsuko! In celebration of the launch of the amazing show, Aggretsuko has some very special events planned for us! The first of this is her taking over Sanrio’s Japanese Village shop in Little Tokyo.

img_2047

I attended the opening up of the pop this Friday, May 4 and was simply in awe! The first thing that you will see is Aggretsuko’s office space.

img_2045

We all know Aggretsuko is a sweet red panda who struggles to make it through her day job at one of Tokyo’s most respected trading companies. We get to experience her office days first hand as we see her desk! Her super cute desk that has photos of her with her friends, a neat Hello Kitty calendar as well all the paperwork she’s assigned too (sigh! Rage!!!)

img_2063

As we’ve seen in the netflix series; her bosses are unsympathetic and give her harsh deadlines! All around her desk are her coworkers. Director Ton is bossing her around. Secretary Washimi is watching over her and then there is nosy Fenneko.

What is a red panda to do when she is pushed to her limit??  She goes into rage mode at the Den of Rage!

img_2046

Sanrio Japanese Village; the 800 square foot retail space in downtown L.A. has been transformed into Aggretsuko’s Den of Rage.  Here Aggretsuko freely goes into “rage mode” and channels her frustration through heavy metal karaoke sessions.

img_2048

All of us fans can rage along with her for two weeks until May 16! Not only will we get channel our inner red panda we will also have the opportunity to shop the largest selection of new imported and exclusive Aggretsuko merchandise in the world

img_2061

Aggetsuko’s office space and Den of Rage is truly a sight to see! Hurry on over to Sanrio Japanese Village and be a part of our favorite red panda’s world!

Hello Aggretsuko on Netflix!

Hello Aggretsuko on Netflix!

For all the Netflix fans; Hello Kitty’s dear friend Aggretsuko has a very special treat for us! Our favorite red panda who is a mild-mannered office worker by day/heavy metal karaoke singer by night is the star of a new series coming out on Netflix.

The show follows along on the journey of Retsuko. The 25-year-old red panda is an office associate in the accounting department of a trading company in Tokyo. All she wants is to do her job and get through the day, but when frustrations reach a boiling point, she vents through death metal.

I recently had a chance to watch some of the first episodes and instantly became a fan. There were times when I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or cry as she goes through her day. Young and bright; Retsuko starts off the day full of hope but then the overwhelming tasks start coming and slowly pile up. Adding on to her work woes are her annoying pig boss who plays golf all the time and her nosy coworker who spreads rumors about anything and every thing. I couldn’t help but giggle when Restuko saves herself from a rumor spreading of her quitting by telling her coworker she was constipated. I sadly sympathized when her dreams of working somewhere else were dashed. I laughed when she tried to lose weight to become more desirable. She is easily relatable and that’s what makes her so enduring. We’ve all had those moments when we just want to “rage.” 😉

Laugh, cry, giggle or rage on; you will surely love Aggretsuko more because of this show! The Aggretsuko series will debut globally on April 20 on Netflix.

Hello Sanrio Fun @ Tanaka Farms!

Hello Sanrio Fun @ Tanaka Farms!

I love the season of Fall! Fall brings us the wonderful color changes of the leaves, crisp, cool weather and my favorite pumpkin season. I am therefore so excited that for this first week of Fall, a very special collaboration between Sanrio and Tanaka farms will be launching!

The Irvine based farm Tanaka Farms and Sanrio are coming together for a year-long partnership where Hello Kitty and her friends; Chococat, My Melody, Keroppi, and Pochacco, will become ambassadors to the farm.  Our favorite Sanrio friends will be play a special role in the educational programming provided by Tanaka Farms and visitors will learn the importance of healthy eating, as well as sustainability, responsible farming and agriculture. Best of all they can do this all while supporting their local community.

img_3089

The collaboration kicks off with the super cute Tanaka Farms’ Pumpkin Patch this September 30. There will be lots fun all around the farm such a corn maze, a “U-Pick Veggie” garden and super cute photo ops around the farm with Hello Kitty, Keroppi, Chococat, My Melody and Pochacco. Then on October 28, there will even be a super cute Halloween  Sanrio costume contest!

img_3088

The fun doesn’t stop however with the pumpkin patch because there will be many seasonal celebrations throughout the year! During the holiday season, there will be a Christmas Tree Farm. Next spring there will be strawberry picking and next summer there will be a melon celebration! Hello Kitty fun in the farm through all the seasons is in store for us!

There will also be a limited edition collection of commemorative Sanrio ♥ Tanaka Farms merchandise  that will also be available for purchase at the Farm’s Market Stand.

The Sanrio and Tanaka Farms is one very special partnership. It is educational and promotes healthy eating and awareness. Thank you to Sanrio and Tanaka Farms for bringing another wonderful thing for us Hello Kitty Foodies to look forward to this Fall and beyond.
