Hahaha I’m sorry I just had to, I’ve been wanting to say that for a long time now :P

Well, it’s all over the net now, seriously it’s amazing how many people are excited about Hello Kitty Online! Personally, I think this isn’t a “girl’s” game, I think a lot of guys will be wanting to play this (provided that they’re secure about their masculinity moohaha~). And why not? It looks like a fun, casual game, a lot of people are looking for stuff like that.

Honestly I’m impressed with the graphics! This screenshot in particular, gets special mention from me~

Hello Kitty Online 01

Waaaaah~ I love it! They look like servings of leche flan! Leche flan is a Filipino egg-cream custard, it’s so delicious. Wanna see why? Here’s a picture:

Leche Flan

SEE? Hahaha~ Anyways, I signed up for a closed beta account, but according to the site, there are over 40,000 subscriptions already. I sure hope I can still get an account! ^^

Tokidoki loves Hello Kitty still

February 14th, 2008 by kt_sanctuary:hellokitty.com

An update on the Tokidoki x Hello Kitty collaboration I wrote about in an old post (with a similar title), the pics are up on the Tokidoki site~

Tokidoki x Hello Kitty

If you remember from that post, there were pictures of Hello Kitty as one of the Cactus characters, and that up there is her with Bastardino!

As gathered from the unofficial Tokidoki Blog, there was a leak from a Sanrio employee (later confirmed by the Sanrio Retail Operations department) that the items will be available in stores by the end of the month. Although, the pendant that Simone Legno was wearing in that old post of mine, isn’t gonna be available :P

There’s a full list of items at the Sanrios shop, and you can view them all by clicking here~

Tokidoki x Hello Kitty

This has got to be one of the most exciting collaborations, and in my opinion, the best! I’ll update you all if the items are available in stores already~! ^^

Hello Kitty ‘Thank You’ Plushies

February 11th, 2008 by kt_sanctuary:hellokitty.com
Hello Kitty ‘Thank You’ Plush - England

If you’re familiar with the British Royal Guard, the ones that don’t smile, move or make any facial expressions at all, then this is really a weird concept. :P Imagine Hello Kitty not smiling, not talking or moving at all!

This is part of a series of ‘Thank You’ plushies available at the Sanrio Shop, where Hello Kitty dresses up in costumes from different countries. The one above is from England, and here are the rest of them~ Enjoy!

Hello Kitty ‘Thank You’ Plush - USA

Hello Kitty as the Statue of Liberty, representing the USA.

Hello Kitty ‘Thank You’ Plush - Brazil

Cute costume from Brazil, with their way of saying thanks, “Obrigado”! I like the feathery headpiece, and that she has eyelashes ^^ Though I don’t think I could wear something like this myself :P

Hello Kitty ‘Thank You’ Plush - Korea

This one’s from Korea, with their national costume, the Hanbok. Thank you in Korean is “Kamsahamnida” ^^

Hello Kitty ‘Thank You’ Plush - China

I don’t know what’s written! Haha but it’s “thank you” as well I suppose :P I asked some Chinese friends and they say it isn’t the way they write “Xie xie” which would be how they say it in Mandarin. Oh well ^^;

Hello Kitty ‘Thank You’ Plush - Japan

And finally, what seems to be the prettiest of all, the Japanese Hello Kitty saying “arigatou”~

As you can see, each country comes in a set of 3. The largest one is your regular stand-alone plushie, while the smaller one is a bag accessory and the smallest one is a cellphone strap.

Each set costs ¥3,423 or about US$32. They’re featured on page 44-45 of the Sanrio Special Catalogue, and you can check them out on the Sanrio shop ^^

Happy Chinese New Year!

February 7th, 2008 by kt_sanctuary:hellokitty.com

I made a video in Dream Studio for Chinese New Year~ I know a lot of people are making videos for the holiday, and I know I’m not really Chinese (as I recently revealed :P) but here goes anyway ^^

Got those pics from around the web. Kung Hei Fat Choi to my Chinese readers! Hope you have a great year ahead!

Tiniest Hello Kitty USB Memstick

February 5th, 2008 by kt_sanctuary:hellokitty.com

It’s all over the official blogs, but I believe this is a perfect thing to post here~ ^^

It’s a USB memory stick that comes in 1GB. There’s hardly any more info on it, but judging from the picture, it’s really a Sanriotown gadget! As you can see, it’s just a bit bigger than a normal-sized paperclip, and looks pretty thin too! It looks like a stick of gum frankly :P

I can’t wait to find out where I can get it. I wonder if it’s gonna be a Kittyshop thing? Although, I do wish it came in other colors~

More Hello Kitty Speakers

February 1st, 2008 by kt_sanctuary:hellokitty.com

Hello Kitty Speakers

Sorry for the late post, been really really busy~ But on with the show ^^

It’s actually my first time seeing these Hello Kitty speakers, though I’ve seen others of the sort. Cuteness! Also, Mimmy’s in it! I dunno I really do feel bad for Mimmy, so finding this is a joy~

It’s apparently an iPod accessory, but since that looks like a normal jack, it’ll work for other stuff too. It’s 3″x2″ and weighs around 100kg. You can check them out on Asiaphilic, and can buy it for US$22.50 ^^

Operation Tag: ME

January 28th, 2008 by kt_sanctuary:hellokitty.com

I’ve been tagged by Kittymama! As promised, today I post my answers! But first a little something to satisfy your craving for Hello Kitty~

Hello Kitty Mushrooms

These are even sillier than that old KT Mushroom I featured some months ago :P If ever you’re curious about them, here’s the link, although they’re again from the Sanrio shop. Anyways, onwards! Operation Tag, begin!

7 Random and Weird Things About Me:

1. I have a pet dog named Bruce, whom I rarely ever call Bruce, and thusly have confused him forever as to what his name really is. I usually call him “Boosey” (playing around with his real name) or “Baby” hahaha :P

2. I grew up in an odd neighborhood. Where everybody knew each other, but that wasn’t necessarily a good thing. I studied at a school beside a large butchering place, so we’d walk out that tiny road with pig blood running under the street. You can see the “stream of blood” it through the cracks, with only poorly-aligned blocks of concrete covering them. And during class you could hear pigs squealing really loud. I wish I were kidding.

3. I love food. Yes, it deserves its own number because it’s that important. Moohaha.

4. I can speak a little Japanese, because my brother speaks it (Like he can converse with Japanese people, while I can’t T_T), but usually I just ask him for help if I need it.

5. I look Chinese but I’m not really, it was my great grandma (I think) who was Chinese. Too far up haha :P

6. I also love music. If I leave the house without my iPod, I’ll seriously panic and wish I were home instead. T_T

7. I haven’t given my name for the longest time because I was planning to make this blog really about Kitty, and not about me :P Buuuut (EDIT) I’ve decided to finally reveal my name~ You may call me Ruth! Nice to meet you all. And thanks for wanting to know more about me, Ms. KTS ^^

I tag: Iheartbadtz, Tingal, Jaredkyle, Mr. Rock Out, Bong, Raein, and Steffi! ^_^

Another Hello Kitty Brick

January 25th, 2008 by kt_sanctuary:hellokitty.com
Hello Kitty Brick

Just a quick post! Look what I found on Brickshelf, a very odd Hello Kitty! Such defined eyelashes~ I think the flowers are adorable though. :P
Anyways, I’ve been tagged by Kittymama in her latest blog, but I haven’t finished with my answers and sorta have to run off now, so I’ll post them tomorrow ^^ So you’ll be learning more about the gal behind KTS~ Till then!

Hello Kitty Walkie Talkie

January 23rd, 2008 by kt_sanctuary:hellokitty.com
Hello Kitty Walkie Talkie

Uwaaa~ My last post got featured on Sanriotown’s Hello Kitty News ^^ Yay! Apparently it’s really a big deal to a lot of people that she would be shown with a mouth and without a nose XD

Well, speaking of mouths and talking (Hahaha I’m sorry, I just needed to connect them), here’s something for that. A Hello Kitty walkie talkie!

The range for this is about 30m when indoors, but I’m not so sure about what the site says for the outdoor range. Apparently you can talk with more than 2 people too. It runs on 6 LR44 batteries (I honestly wonder why they didn’t just go for AAs or something.. ) and costs about US$17 ^^

If I had a walkie talkie, I’d probably use it to pull pranks or something. Hide one in the couch and then talk through the other. Moohahaha~ XD

Hello Kitty Display Protector

January 21st, 2008 by kt_sanctuary:hellokitty.com

Hello Kitty Display Protector

Actually I’ve never really considered it much of a problem that people would read my text messages over my shoulder (Maybe I have a boring text life so no one really cares about it? Haha~) but if you ever do, then Hello Kitty’s got an answer for that too ^^

It looks like an ordinary sticker, but it’s actually a Hello Kitty Display Protector, designed to block the display if viewed from any other angle than from directly infront. In other words, the one holding the phone will be the only one who can read the message. Pretty neat!

Not to mention, it protects your screen from scratches and Kittifies your cellphone display~ ^^
