Hello Kitty & Friends Visit Changi Airport This June Holidays So Here's Everything You Need to Know!

(UPDATED on 26 May 2017 with more photos and details)

After the visit of Pokemon to Changi Airport last December, it is time to say konichiwa to all the cute Sanrio friends this June School Holidays season!

Yes, Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 will be filled with extreme kawaii-ness this June holidays as supercute life-sized Hello Kitty & Friends will be the stars in the month-long showcase (26 May - 26 June 2017), which will feature games, activities, shopping and great prizes to be won.

Even the wifey's fave, Gudetama, will be there too!!!

Fans can also enjoy a taste of the Nordic lifestyle at Terminal 3, where a specially curated showcase will feature famous highlights such as: the Northern Lights in a video display, a Viking ship-inspired gallery and even an indoor snow luge at the Snow Funhouse by Snow City. The Snow Funhouse will be the very first indoor snow experience in the east of Singapore!

At the different event sites, visitors will have great photo opportunities with 3-D displays of Sanrio characters in their Nordic winter costumes. To top off the experience, visitors can vote for their favourite Sanrio character and get a chance to win four tickets to Japan’s Puroland!

Life-sized characters Hello Kitty, My Melody, Pompompurin, Cinnamoroll, Gudetama, and the Little Twin Stars kicked off the school holidays with a song & dance show!

Gudetama obviously has the easiest job of all. 😂😂😂
