HONG KONG, CHINA PET STORES: CUTE PERSIAN CATS & DOGS, PANDA BEAR PAJAMAS, WEIRD CHINESE SUPERMARKET FOOD.
Life is nuts lately… so many announcements and travels that even I’m having trouble keeping track! On Monday, I’m releasing a new design collection — very proud of it. Please check back for the announcement.
Tokyo coverage is imminent, but let’s finish up with Hong Kong. Here are some creepy-cute things that caught my eye while strolling in Causeway Bay. (Seba and I spent a great deal of time in this district, since our Roomorama apartment was located here.)
This pet store specializes in cats with pushed-in faces. Inside, there were at least five of them for sale.
Down the road, a different pet shop focused on poodles.
Peanuts appears to be big in Hong Kong. (Remember our foray into the Charlie Brown Cafe?) The Chocoolate clothing store had a Snoopy collaboration.
Scenes from daily life… we spent far too much time at Caffe Habitu, a Western-style cafe with free wireless Internet. The concept store had panda pajamas.
I love stocking up on groceries at Wellcome Supermarket. Lots of bright, cute packaging. But I don’t know about the Beano popsicles…
Thank you, everyone, for the birthday wishes and gifts! Big hugs for Mandi (above), Spike (below left) and Kokoro (below right) for these adorable drawings.
What are your impressions of Hong Kong culture? Aren’t many aspects similar to Japan’s? You can see all my photos and articles in the Hong Kong and Macau category.
