I don't have any female cousins & the friends that I know there are all guys too so no one would go with me T_T Finally, my aunt and my mom pitied me and agreed to take me. ^o^ Finally! I've been wanting to go for like 5 years hahaha
I went to the one in Taipei and it is called Hello Kitty Sweets. My aunt made reservations since it's known to get very crowded on weekends. Sorry I don't know the address, tried to google but only got stuff in Chinese >.<
Eeeek! Super adorable window display (=^x^=)
I can't stand pink but this is pretty rad lol
Their desserts are so pretty!
Their food is rather pricey, by Taiwan standards. But it's average if compared to the US.
I think they concentrate most of their efforts on making stuff look like Hello Kitty, not really how it tastes hahaha
Who woulda thought that the first time I'd try snails would be at a Hello Kitty cafe...not too bad. Idk why people freak out about them =\
I forget what this is called but I will admit I only wanted it because of the HK bread bowl =_= it tasted alright.
Everything and anything that could possibly be made into an HK shape will be in HK shape.
My drink. I think this was like a strawberry float.
Their desserts are actually really good, much better than the actual food. The cake is so yummy! This one was mango.
Basically, people come here to take pictures of everything and oggle at how cute stuff is. If you drag someone who isn't an HK fan here, they will be miserable since the food isn't all that great.
I had a blast hahaha
I wonder if this was his first job choice, making Hello Kitty cakes hehe
Overall, it's a great tourist attraction. I don't think locals come here often. I mainly saw some Japanese tourists and little girls haha
I'd recommend coming here for afternoon tea and just order dessert if you have a chance to go.
I never do touristy stuff when I go to Taiwan so I had fun XD
And if you're ever at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport...hit up the Hello Kitty terminal. Way better than the typical black and grey terminals that make you feel miserable.
But it plays eerie children's music that freaked me out because I was there at like 2am and no one else was around -_-
There's also a Hello Kitty nursery but... I didn't take pictures, it was too pink for me haha!
And yes...I bought Hello Kitty gum at 7-Eleven. Tasted horrible >.<
So this is quite random & not HK related but...it's still super freaking awesome I had to share.
I am obsessed with Anna Sui cosmetics. Because it's not available in the US, I always visit the counters when in Asia. They have the most amazing displays!
Pretty much every department store in Taipei will have an Anna Sui counter.
Whyyyyy can this not be my room?!
♥_♥ PURPLE makeup sponges...arranged to look like a rose!
I wanted to swipe the entire container but I didn't...too chicken shit to steal XD
I love Anna Sui cosmetics. Everything they make is rose scented. I have a few of their glosses & lipsticks & they smell amazing! Even their nail polish has this amazing rose scent that lasts for a couple days. I did a post awhile back about the ones I bought.
SAs over there are rather...eager to help/borderline pushy. It annoys me when I just want to browse. They watch you like a hawk & follow you around as if you're about to steal >.>
But this SA turned out to be quite nice & spent like 20 min talking about nail polish with me ^o^
Plus her nails were super cool!
So this ended up being a rather random post...Hope you still enjoyed it! ^.^♥♥♥
