Previously I visited Hello Kitty town in Johor, but in this month hello kitty come to my country and held a Christmas time celebration at Gandaria City. Along with her friends Dear Daniel, My Melody, Bad Badtz Maru and Pom Pom Purin. Since I busy overtime at the office, so I just have time to visit the show on the weekend. 

The show presented the story about Princess kitty and Prince Dear Daniel who had a dream about white Christmas  but they were sad since there were not snow in the castle. My Melody as a fairy godmother came to give Kitty a magic bracelet as a gift. She said that bracelet could make kitty's dream came true, So Kitty prayed and asked for white christmas, suddenly the snow fell down (actually it was a bubble sprayed from a machine, hihihi). On the night when Kitty, Daniel and their guard Purin sleep, Bad Badtz Maru came and stole the bracelet and escaped from the castle, but don't worry Daniel finally succeed to take the bracelet back, and give it to Kitty.

They asked the audience to dance together

On the photo session, Badz Maru looked at me and told me to take a pic of him 
(yeahh he knew that my camera was pointing to him)

And don't forget to shop the souvenirs

Yesterday I visited Gandaria City to watch Hello Kitty Live Show on the Main Atrium. Now i'm officially fall in love with that kitty. After the show I walked around the mall and visited this Bubble Tea Outlet named Find Molly. They had various drinks such as; Teas, Fruit flavored teas and Milk teas. We just add our favorite topping and sugar level.

Kemarin saya mengunjungi Gandaria City untuk menonton acara Hello Kitty Live show di Atrium Utamanya. Dan mulai saat ini saya benar-benar jatuh cinta samaaa kucing imut satu ituuu. Setelah acara usai, saya jalan-jalan keliling mall dan mengunjungi Find Molly, outlet minuman bubble tea. Mereka memiliki bermacam menu minuman seperti, teh, teh berperisa buah, dan teh susu. Kita tinggal menambahkan topping kesukaan kita dan kadar gulanya saja.


The outlet also had a cute design and cute pictures on the wall. With white brick color, it makes the room so bright.

Design gerainya dan gambar-gambar di dindingnya lucu. Warna ruangannya jadi cerah karena aksen bata yang dicat putih di dindingnya.
.

Actually the pictures on the wall tell a story about the molly who is play hide and seek in the theme park, and ask us to help her friend to find her.

Sebenarnya gambar-gambar yang tertempel di dinding menceritakan sebuah cerita tentang si molly yang lagi asik bermain petak umpet di taman bermain dan meminta kita untuk ikut mencari molly.




and I found her less than 1 minute, hahahahahahah, she's standing near the hot dog booth *uppss spoiler. She wearing a polka dot dress and  I think she's also hanging her favorite milk tea.

Dalam waktu kurang dari 1 menit saya sudah berhasil menemukan tempat Molly bersembunyi, hahahhaha, Dia berdiri didekat booth hotdog *bocooraaan* Dia mengenakan baju terusan bermotif polkadot and kayaknya dia juga sambil memegang teh susu favoritnya.

And here my order, french vanilla with small bubble, RECOMMENDED

Molly loyalty card, each time you buy drink in molly they will stamp your card. Collect 10 stamps to get one free drink with one topping.






It almost 8 PM, and we still can't find Charlie Brown Cafe. After asked direction to Garrett Popcorn's Staff in 313 Somerset, finally we arrived at this cafe.

Sudah hampir jam 8 malam dan kami masih belum bisa menemukan kafe charlie brown *sigh*. Akhirnya kami sampai juga di kafenya, setelah menanyakan arahnya ke staff Garrett Popcorn di 313 Somerset.

This is an Outdoor cafe type, well I cant stop shaking and freezing each time the wind sweep my hair, the rain just stopped and the night getting colder and colder, But met this black and white innocent dog made me super happy ;)

What a cozy place, with Snoopy and friends ornament around. On the table, ceiling, wall, door and menu book.

Ini ada sebuah kafe bergaya outdoor, hujan baru saja berhenti dan hari semakinnnnnn dingin dan saya tidak bisa berhenti gemetaran dan kedinginan setiap saat angin bertiup ke rambut =.=. Tapi setelah bertemu anjing hitam putih bermuka polos ini saayaaaa sangaat senang.

After starring at the menu book, finally we chose our meal and ordered it.

The selection of dessert dominated with ice creams, crepes and waffles. Unfortunately I cant ordered it :( because it too cold. There some situation that made me and my friend laughed, when we ordered Mountain Water we didn't expect that the label of the mineral water was AQUA, which a label that produced in our country. We can't stop smiling and laughing, we were far away from home but feels like at home ;)

Pilihan menunya didominasi oleh hidangan penutup dengan es krim, crepes, dan wafel. Tapi sayangnya saya tidak bisa memesan salah satu menu tersebut di malam dingin seperti ini. Dan ada sebuah kejadian menarik yang membuat saya dan seorang teman tidak dapat berhenti tertawa, ketika kami memesan minuman bernamanya "Mountain Water" kami sama sekali tidak menyangkan jika label air mineral yang mereka sediakan adalah AQUA, yang merupakan label hasil produksi Indonesia. Meski kami jauh dari rumahh tapi sama sekali tidak terasa.

Me and My friend chose these menus


The mashed potato and hainan rice tasted good :). Even the size of my chicken wing was bigger than my expectation. A worth dinner to wait after a loonggggg walk, hahaaha *what a weary feet :p*

Let's follow this sign board, and we will arrive at Hello Kitty Town in Johor Bahru ;)


Here is another story from my previous trip to JB - SG last week, before I played half day in Legoland, I visited this cute cartoon house first ;). Hello kitty town is located in Puteri Harbour, Nusajaya, Johor. I took around 30 minutes from my hotel in KSL Resort. But in a couple months later, there will be some new hotels near Legoland and Hello Kitty ;)

Fortunately the taxi that picked me up to the park was so kind and helpful, He told me about everything around, How was Johor before Hello kitty and Legoland came up, What is Danga bay, What is JPO, and another tourist info :) thank you Mr. Lord (unique name right?)

By the time I arrived in the location, I just straight away queuing to enter the park, it was 10:05 and the park just opened. Thanks God we already had the ticket that I bought online on playtime.com.my, it saved my time for another ticket queue. The park is located on 1st floor, on the ground floor we could find red bow cafe and souvenir shop. The Big Club (another park like hello kitty town but consist of Thomas the train, Barney, Bob The Builder, Pingu and Angelina) is located on 2nd and 3rd floor. After the staff scan my ticket barcode, she gave me this card


Yepp, There are 6 activities that visitor can do in this park, another one is still closed. Nail salon, Jewerly making, Cookie studio and Costume Dress up are kind of KIDZANIA stuff (for others who don't what Kidzania is, it is a place where children can play some adult jobs). So I kept off those activities and came to Hello Kitty House first. This House have living room, dining room, bath room, bed room, kitchen, and wardrobe that's covered with hello kitty stuff, check out these pictures;



Once you came to the house, your card will be stamped and you can not re-enter the place because visitor only have one visit on each activity (It written in Visitor Daily Activity Card). So use your time well. I love the kitchen and the bathroom , so hooommmyyyyyy. Lucky you Kitty

This park also had a parade, we can meet Hello kitty, Daniel and My Melody character dancing and playing around at the purrfect stage in the middle of the park. It had a different show time during weekend and weekday, make sure you notice it. Or else you gonna missed it. They were jump to the left, go to the right, left right, left right, and jump jump jump, and clap clap clap around.

clap clap clap

After that I visited "HELLO KITTY BLACK WONDER", a cave that owned by Kuromi *another sanrio cartoon*. There was a word riddle game activity in it. Visitor will be given a lamp that had a sensor when touched to clue or the letter that we are looking for. Each chamber had different types of riddle and each riddle will give you one letter. When you solve all the riddles you will found all letters that you used as a password. Give the password to the check out counter, if you get the correct answer the staff will print out the certificate. *but at that time I wasn't join the game and just look around the cave*
