I posted about McDonald's here in Singapore having a Hello Kitty plushie promotion a few weeks ago (read my full post about it in this here link).  And boy, was I surprised at how high my viewership numbers for that particular entry grew in only a few hours after posting.  Pretty amazing.  So I guess it is safe to assume that a lot of people are interested in this thing.

Like all other female bodies in Singapore, the Little One and I too, both went gaga over these cuties.  So here's a small peek at what you'll get for S$4.60 (Php151.80*), plus purchase of a value meal too, of course.

Hello Kitty Fairy Tales plushie


I present exhibit A, Hello Kitty dressed up at the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz, which was the first design offered at the start of the promotion last May. 

Hello Kitty as the Cowardly Lion

Unlike the other plastic bag-clad Hello Kitty plushie promotions I've encountered (most of them in the Philippines), this one came with this very cute box.  Great for displaying, don't you think?

For display purposes

You'll notice that the hood on her head is the only removable part.  The rest of the costume is sewed on pretty tight. 

Upon further inspection, I suddenly got the feeling that it seemed smaller than the previous similar plushies offered by McDonald's.  So I compared it an older Kitty Mickey D's doll that was offered a few years back.

Side-by-side

You'll notice the size difference immediately.  Further inspection under Kitty's hood reveled a visible line connecting her right ear to the rest of her head, something I've never seen in any other Hello Kitty doll in the market.

So yes, I am a tad disappointed (the dead crossed out eyes on the Lion hood didn't help matters, too), but these small flaws didn't stop the Little One from taking Kitty to bed and lovingly tucking her under the sheets (ahhh... the innocence of youth.)

I sincerely doubt, though, if any of these flaws would make die-hard Hello Kitty fans want to stop collecting the whole set.  As for me, I'm wishing the next one's better.

*S$1 = Php33

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
