Hello Kitty Go Around! In Singapore opens door today!
If you're heading down, be prepared for overload of cuteness and fun. You will be dazzled by a spectacular line-up of entertainment and attractions, all in an old school carnival ambience! The Hello Kitty Go Around! In Singapore promises to be a nostalgic walk down the lane of childhood memories filled with Hello Kitty!
There was an opening ceremony yesterday to kick start the long awaited carnival and it's my honor to be part of the celebration. So yes, it's so exciting (and thanks to the free flow ice lemon tea at the hard rock cafe) that I actually stayed up late to rush out this post!
The ceremony was hosted by the ever gorgeous Michelle Chia.
I had my fan girl moment and managed to score a photo with her.

For those heading down!!
Oh yah, do dress light if you are going during the day as it's out in a non air-conditioned mega pavilion. It's probably great to wear shade or hat. I think it might be more comfortable to go in the late afternoon and evening but then again it's dark (perhaps more crowded) and a totally different feel!
Finally, thank you The Loving Mum and Bumble Bee Mum with the portrait shots! It's nice catching up with both of you.
