We took Ethan to see the Sanrio Village today. Okay, we really decided to go shopping and happened to have stumbled upon the village at the mall. The lines were so long however that we didn't actually make it inside the village to see all the characters, but we did manage to meet Hello Kitty and Badtz Maru.
Ethan loves Hello Kitty or 'Meow-me' (Chinese for cat) as he calls her. Unlike meeting Santa, he was really excited. He kept waving Hi while we were waiting in line and when we got to meet her, he grabbed her hands and poked her nose a couple of times. We had to tear him away as he kept yelling 'Bye Meow-me! Byeeeee!'.
Ethan also liked playing in the cars at the mall. He gave us a pout when we told him we had to leave.
