One thing I really love about the Christmas season in Hong Kong is the fact that every shopping mall –no matter how small they are – are doing their best to decorate with some amazing themes.
The Metro City Plaza shopping mall is one of the lesser-known smaller shopping malls located far from downtown areas in Hong Kong. Probably hardily any tourist will travel so far to do some shopping here. However, this year you might want to reconsider to take the time to travel there especially if you are a fan of Sanrio characters – Pom Pom Purin.
The popular cartoon character Pom Pom Purin (also known as Pudding Dog) and his family and friends are the center of this special Christmas Exhibition at the Metro City Plaza shopping mall. In fact this has been the first exhibition of this cute dog here in Hong Kong and even the Japanese designer wouldn’t miss the chance and opportunity to open up this special exhibition.
Hong Kong has many Hello Kitty themed exhibitions during the past years. This little cute Sanrio cartoon character of an adorable golden retriever dog is a refreshing alternative. Although the Metro City Plaza x Pompompurin Christmas Exhibition is rather small, it is still full of photo opportunities.
The adorable Pudding Dog Pom Pom Purin is celebrating Christmas with his family and friends and the complete Christmas decoration theme is centered around the 19th century European Royals and Aristocrats.
The Metro City Plaza is transforming to an aristocratic royal palace garden. His dad, wearing a slick tuxedo and cylinder hat, is riding in a typical royal carriage while Pom Pom Purin is dressed like a little prince with a crown.
There is a 5-meter special golden Pom Pom Purin Christmas tree (reminding more on a étagère from a classic high tea set than a typical Christmas tree) with a giant golden Pom Pom Purin on top holding a scepter.
You are able to meet Pudding Dog’s friends Muffin (a hamster) and Bagel as well as cute little girlfriend Macaron dressed up like a Victorian Lady.
The golden teapot is hosting a small exhibition of collectable Pom Pom Purin products and items from the past.
Did I mention that there is also a special Sanrio store selling only Pom Pom Purin products? You are able to get some really nice and cute stationery, plush toys, cups, bags, etc. which are hard to find elsewhere.
Last but not least, there is also a special themed Pom Pom Purin Pop-Up Café.
