Hello Kitty Go Around Singapore - The Purrfect Catnip For Fans

Even while Red Dot Diva was busily admiring biceps at AsiaPop Comicon in Manila, she got wind of the news (accompanied by very loud purrs) about a big Hello Kitty event coming up in Red Dot Island.

Knowing how a large number of Red Dot Islanders get catnipped by the mere mention of Hello Kitty and her friends, Red Dot Diva assigned fan Special Agent H.Y. to find out more about the upcoming Hello Kitty Go Around Singapore.

Here is Special Agent H.Y.'s report:


Avid fans of the Kitty who’s 3 apples tall would no doubt have heard of her travel stop in Hong Kong. Well fret not, as fans in Singapore can now look forward to their turn to host Hello Kitty in her next stop, and the first outside of Hong Kong.

Hello Kitty Go Around Singapore will be held at The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore from 16th October to 10th November 2015. I’m sure that fans with sharp eyes would’ve noticed that Kitty’s birthday just so happens to fall in the period when she’ll be here! Which means that Kitty-fans will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate Hello Kitty’s 41st Birthday right here in sunny Singapore on the 1st of November.

Only 1,050 lucky, swift-fingered fans will get the chance to join in the birthday celebrations, which will be divided into 3 sessions over the course of the day (350 participants in each session). What can you expect, you ask? Of course, there will be cake-cutting and a dance performance led by Kitty herself. To top it off, 30 lucky fans from each session will be selected to meet-and-greet Hello Kitty for a photo taking session! What could be more memorable than a photo with Kitty on her birthday?

What if you can’t make it to Kitty’s birthday? There will still be plenty for fans to enjoy, like photo taking zones like the popular Ferris Wheel, exhibitions, games and activity booths. What I thought was most special is that there will be an exclusive post office setup just for the event, with exclusive postcards for you to send to friends and family (or maybe to yourself to commemorate the event), and special post marks will be stamped onto postcards sent out from this post office.

Various photo-taking zones

Games stations (clockwise from top left), Lucky Ribbon, Sanrio Baby Race, Save the Goldfish, Papa's Reading Room, Mama's Kitchen and Tiny Chum's Ring Toss. Exclusive prizes are available at all stations!!!

Then, there are the fantastic list of Hello Kitty memorabilia and exclusives for grabs at the special even, ranging from figurines to t-shirt. There will be something for everyone! Check out the images of some of the merchandise available below.

Exclusives. Top 2 paper figurines available with SG50 pack along with the gold 3 inch figurine (limited to 8,000), while the figurine set excluding the gold is included in the Birthday Celebration Ticket purchase.

T-shirts will all come with an exclusive case!
