Hello Kitty Go Around Singapore Faces The Ire of Fans

*Angry MEORRwWsssWSs*
*HISsssSSSSSsssssssss*

Hello Kitty may not have a mouth, but her fans sure do!

What was marketed as a fun and exclusives-filled event called Hello Kitty Goes Round Singapore, drew the ire of fans just within hours of its opening at The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore earlier today.

According to the announcement given to the media, several exclusives, games and special Kitty events were to take place during the show.

As the Red Dot Islanders know too well.... DO NOT Mess, Ever, with the Hello Kitty Fans! Never, Ever. They are Fierce. *shudder*

Red Dot Diva heard that early bird attendees (who mainly were also going for the SG50 pack) got enraged when they found out that entry tickets were being sold at a much lower price on site. To add to that was the devastating realization that the super-exclusive paper figurines which were to be part of the SG50 package were not produced "due to unforeseen production issues". The hardcore Kitty fans have also noticed other items like artbooks missing from their goodie bags.

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:

STGCC 2015: Toys-etc Reviews The Exclusive SG50 Unico by Tokidoki!


When it comes to reviews, there is undoubtedly always a personal bias within. Especially so, when it relates to someone or something you adore or look up to.

As a fair blogger though, one tries to place some amount of balance to the opinion. Red Dot Diva finds it difficult to judge about lifestyle brand tokidoki's toys, simply because they are all generally SO CUTE.

However, Glam Bloggers Alliance buddy, Ed from Toys-etc dares to tread into dangerous territories. Here is his "Totally Unbiased" review of the SG50 Unicorno!

Get A Dose of Nostalgia At The Little Red Brick LUG SG50 LEGO Show

A long list of free activities began this week in celebration of Red Dot Island's 50th birthday.

Many attractions and sites are either offering free access (like the various museums) or discounted ticket prices (the zoos/ Gardens by the Bay), which would most probably mean snake-long queues and equally long waiting times. So, here's an alternative SG50-related event that is both free and would not need lining up in order to have some family fun!


Red Dot Diva highly recommends a trip to the National Library Singapore (Victoria Street) atrium for the Little Red Brick LUG's LEGO Exhibition, called "Past Forward: Hearts and Crafts".

These lovely structures - over 40 of them - were build by a group of passionate brick builders from the local community. From the displays, it was evident to Red Dot Diva that a lot of heart and soul was lovingly put into the pieces - many of which evoke much Nostalgia Feels.

Gardens By The Bay's Merlion Redesigned: So Majestic, So Hunky! Diva Tracks Down His Concept Artist, Lynette Wu

The Jubilee Weekend is here! :D

ICYMI (Red Dot Diva says that's understandable, since there are all these #SG50 stuff happening all over town), there's something .. no, actually.... *SOMEONE* very sexy, who is eager to meet you!

With his long wind-swept mane that would make Thor Odinson jealous, eye-popping muscular abs and overall bicepstuousness, Merlion Redesigned will be standing tall and strong at a special exhibit held at Gardens by the Bay.

Merlion's hunky transformation is a far cry from his familiar, comfy Dad bod, which looks like this:


Now, this is what the reboot Merlion looks like in Gardens by the Bay's promo collaterals!

Celebrate SG50 at The Fullerton Hotel with a Gorgeous 3D Light Show!


The Red Dot Island's 50th Birthday is next weekend, and there is already a long list of free SG50 activities and places of interest for locals and tourists to join in the big birthday bash.

Red Dot Diva says you can add one more to your list - the very special SG50 3D Light Show at the Fullerton Hotel, a heritage building with a 87-year-old history. The original landmark, the Fullerton Building, was constructed in 1928, and starting from today 1 August, the grand old lady will be dressed in fancy colours for 9 days.

Last night, Red Dot Diva was invited to a preview of the light-up called "A Celebration of Our Heritage". She had mistakenly thought the registration was at the hotel itself, and when she could not find any signs leading to the event, she asked for help from the nearest hotel personnel she could find.
