Hello Kitty Rubik’s Cube

posted by:

I love solving puzzles and all those fun mind games. But one challenging puzzle I never took the time to sit down and learn to solve was the Rubik’s Cube. Sanrio has given the Rubik’s Cube a complete makeover, this Rubik’s Cube may seem cute but it is definitely a new challenge to get all the colors and the Hello Kitty images to face the same side. I remember as a kid I would struggle for hours trying to solve the Rubik’s Cube and then eventually give up :[ Good news is that I finally learned how to solve a Rubik’s Cube last year.  James patiently took his time and taught me how to solve it step by step.

Bad news is that I still cannot get the center piece to align with the rest of the cube :[ So if you’re looking at one side of the cube, the center piece is upside down! If someone knows a good YouTube video or technique, please leave a comment:D It would be greatly appreciated. I had to get my cousin to fix it. Thank you, Nick! 

Hello Kitty Gachapon Mobile Mirrors and Giveaway

posted by:

Japan took gachapon [toy vending machine] one-step ahead of America, instead of putting candies and stickers they reconstructed it into a toy gachapon, consisting of collectible figurines and accessories inside a plastic capsule. I remember being in Japan and there were rows and rows of Gachapon appearing in bookstores, video stores and convenient stores. Here in the states you can only find them at Asian markets or shops.

Gachapon toys usually come in a set, so while I was done grocery shopping at a local Asian super market. I saw a few gachapon machines and one of them was a Hello Kitty Mobile Mirror Set – Collect all 6! I fell in love with it and decided to get a few…


Hello Kitty Mobile Mirror Collection 1 – Collect all 6!


Gacha-Gacha-Gachapon! Pon Pon :]


What’s inside the capsule?


Hello Kitty Mobile Mirror Collection 1 – Front Side Instruction

Definitely Collect all 6! <3 So I got 5 in six tries :] LUCKY ME! I got double in one of the capsules! But sadly it took many more tries to get the last one :[ My favorite one is definitely my last and only one <3 Hello Kitty with an apple on top of her head <3

Hello Kitty Birthday Party

posted by:

Happy Birthday Hello Kitty <3 Gift bags were being handed out again to the first 100 visitors in line:] I almost overslept this morning, as we rushed to Royal/T! When we arrived there, it was barely 7am. The line was already at the fence compared to last Saturday. As I walked towards the end of the line where my friend Angela was standing at, we were #62 in line :D


I love the cute Hello Kitty Hoodie that Angela’s wearing, even though it’s made for kids, it fits her really well. It was completely sold out at the pop-up store, so I’m on a mission to find my Hello Kitty Hoodie too:]

At about 9am, the people who worked for Royal/T finally came out and gave us tickets to prevent people from cutting. Everyone behind and in front of me were all really upset, due to all the people cutting in front :/ When I saw the lady approaching us, the tickets that she had left seem like it was barely enough for us. I was standing right behind Angela and she had two tickets left…one for me<3 and one for James…yes we were…99 and …100. How AWESOME IS THAT?!?


James was kind enough to give his ticket to a girl we met last week, Yazmin, she was such a sweet girl! I hope you had fun!


I also met up with two Lolita girls who were in line with me last Saturday for Hello Kitty’s Fan Appreciation Day. We were all lining up for the autograph signing from Kitty Mama “Yuko Yamaguchi” Hello Kitty’s head designer and Simone Legno for “Tokidoki”

Class Photo with all the participant @ Gary Baseman’s Figure Drawing Workshop. The little girl next to me is so CUTE and her DRAWINGS TOO ;]


I was walking around after the workshop and I ran into Gary Baseman at the front of the Gallery. Gary is such an awesome person, he loves to talk and start conversations. We went on and on and we almost lost track of time. I had to go all the way back to my car to pick up my sketchbook, but it was worth it. Not only did he autograph my book, he drew a cute little girl holding Toby and Hello Kitty <3

I love this workshop! It was a completely DIY project. The Hello Kitty toy bank that we are holding is actually a, “Paint your own Hello Kitty Bank” from Target or ToysRus, for $9.99. Everyone was so creative, I decided to stay on the original side and painted an original kitty. Some of us took advantage of this workshop and painted a pink kitty, momoberry kitty, hawaiian kitty, nerd kitty, pirate kitty, and even a pumpkin kitty.


We took a funny class photo with all the participant @ Buff Monster Toy Workshop. Everyone was so creative, I’m so glad I participated in this workshop!


As we were exiting the VIP room where the workshops were being held. Angela saw this Hello Kitty head and couldn’t resist, she made me put it on after her. This Hello Kitty head was one of the original heads that Sanrio x MAC used to promote their makeup line. And they were actually worn by men at the MAC store.


Hello Kitty Sushi & Bento Box Workshop with acclaimed chef, “Sushi Girl“, $15 material fee, registration required.

After seeing many pictures and fans ordering the high tea set, I decided to order one for myself <3 Along with my high tea set, it came with:


Royal Milk Tea!


Happy Birthday Hello Kitty:] 200 cupcakes were make for this special event. Hundreds of fans joined LA Ladies Choir to sing “Happy Birthday” to Hello Kitty. Tons of fans were swarming against Hello Kitty to take pictures as she left the scene, including myself at a distance:]
