DO you love Hello Kitty? Many girls would probably say yes, and there are definitely many boys who feel the same way too! And this is not only true in Japan (日本), its country of origin, or even in Hong Kong. People in mainland China also deeply love Hello Kitty.
That is why children – and adults – were very happy when the first Hello Kitty cafe opened in Shanghai (上海) earlier this year.
It is not surprising that the cafe, named ‘Hello Kitty Today’, is decorated with Hello Kitty faces and dolls all throughout the two-storey store. Inside, it serves all sorts of kitty-shaped food and drinks. Even a piece of steak will have the face of the cute kitten drawn on it! And the staff working in the restaurant also wear Hello Kitty inspired uniforms!
