To celebrate Sanrio’s 50th anniversary, Takashimaya Singapore is currently holding a Sanrio fiesta. Believe me when I say there was a frenzy going on, when I was there recently – people were grabbing Sanrio paraphernalia like nobody’s business (Hello Kitty merchandise was flying off the shelves) and the place was absolutely packed.
Amidst the crowd, I spotted these Hello Kitty makeup pouches printed with cute images of confectionery.
They have a sweet sentence printed on them too: There’s a spot in my heart for your smile. Aww! Given the Japanese penchant for bizarre English phrases (aka Japlish), it makes syntactic sense, surprisingly. ;)
These pink pouches actually reminded me of the Rilakkuma pouch I’d purchased a while back. If I remember correctly, they cost twice as much as the latter. Ah, the power of the mouthless cat…
I think the Rilakkuma version looks prettier, though!
