Hello Kitty Go Around Malaysia

A dose of cuteness goes a long way. My weekend was like a rainbow after a visit to Hello Kitty Go Around Malaysia at Viva Homes. I did not expect to find joy in the cartoon character as I thought I have outgrown that stage of life but I surprised myself. Scroll down to see what I saw at the exhibition. Perhaps it would make your Chinese New Year and Valentines Day a little cuter this year! Hurry as the exhibition ends on 14th February 2016. 
Ready for lots of cuteness at Hello Kitty World
It's hard to imagine Hello Kitty is 42 years old
Hello Kitty is a fictional character produced by a Japanese company called Sanrio. The cat was then brought to the United States in 1976. This kawaii (cute in Japanese) sensation is a character with a global market worth 5 billion USD per year by 2010. Initially targeted at young girls, Hello Kitty now captures the hearts of old and young alike and undoubtedly many boys too. Hello Kitty even made it to the skies as Eva Air's aeroplanes. [1]
