For mommies here in the Metro, I'm sure the APEC long weekend holiday will excite you and the your kids - it could only mean one thing: travel time! For families with young babies like Baby charley, you might want to consider visiting Hello Kitty Town in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
As the name suggests, Hello Kitty Town is filled with lots of our beloved Sanrio characters dominated by the cutest cat ever, Hello Kitty. Okay, I'm gonna be a little bias here because I just love cats, but I promise you that Hello Kitty Town won't be a disappointment.
Going to Hello Kitty Town, which is in Johor Bahru, is easier if you're coming from Singapore instead of coming from Kuala Lumpur. We decided to book our travel thru Sistic Agency that offered Hello Kitty Town + Little Big House (for little boys), two-way coach transfer for S$70 or roughly Php2,500. The pick-up and drop off point was at the Singapore Flyer, a dinosaur-ish Ferris Wheel. There we checked in, verified our tickets, and grabbed a seat at the coach bus. It took us around 30-45 minutes to travel from SG Flyer to Malaysia.
After a couple of minutes from the Malaysian Immigration, we finally reached Hello Kitty Town! Other guests were dropped off at Legoland nearby. As we entered Hello Kitty Town, we were given two pink and blue sticker bracelets and a pink activity card.
Hello Kitty Town Malaysia is the very first Sanrio theme park outside Japan. It offers a teacup ride (the only ride actually in Hello Kitty Town; there are several others in the Little Big House on the second floor), Hello Kitty's house, Black House, and an entrance to Wishful Studio.
At 2 pm, there was a quick dance show featuring all our beloved Sanrio characters in colourful fiesta costumes. Young girls scream with glee as they watched Hello Kitty, Dear Daniel, Bad Badtz Maru, My Melody, Little Twin Stars, and others performed right in front of them!
Soon, we got hungry so we had the cutest snack ever at the Hello Kitty Cafe downstairs. Hello Kitty inspired foods like waffles and icecream were just too cute to eat!

Hello Kitty Town is more Baby (Charley) friendly compared to other attractions and theme parks in Singapore. Here, young children could appreciate just being surrounded with cuteness, and the crowd and the heat would not overwhelm them.
When you bring your little ones here, prepare your wallets already as they (and you) could be tempted to bring home some Sanrio cuteness!
