My excitement reached an all-time high when I heard there was a Hello Kitty Back to 1960's exhibition going on at Langham Place in Mongkok. However, to be this excited about a cartoony cat is just embarrassing, you know, as an adult.
Nonetheless, my love for Hello Kitty was worth any sort of embarrassment, I mean, how can anyone resist Hello Kitty?
What was unique about this particular exhibition is that the setting for all the stalls incorporates Hong Kong in the 1960s. From the iconic tram, to the Lion Rock tunnel, to a Hong Kong style tea house, delicious dimsum, and much more. It was also great to be immersed in that historical setting; every stall had its unique story, all carefully crafted and designed.
Hello Kitty’s nationality is British; thus creating the perfect balance in east meets west and modern meets tradition. This is probably why the exhibition attracted all age groups, as the majority of the crowed were all grownups alike.
I spent a ridiculous amount of time standing in queues in front of each stall to take pictures with my beloved Hello Kitty, but it was worth every second!
Take a look at some of my favourite pictures of the day:
