The Giddy Kid in Me
We traveled roughly six hours from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru by bus. When we arrived in JB, it took us more than an hour to leave the bus stop because of the impossible rain. We were already in the parking area of Legoland , which by the way is also near Hello Kitty Town. All of our clothes in our bag were already drenched good thing I was able to salvage that HK sweater which I could not wear in Singapore or in KL because it was so humid. Abby and Mitch were even teasing me being a fan girl, seeing all the little girls in the park wearing Hello Kitty shirts. I swear it was pure coincidental.
Sanrio Hello Kitty Town is located at the Puteri Harbor Family Theme Park in Johor Bahru. It was around 10 minutes drive from Legoland Malaysia, which by the way we did not experience because it was raining so hard and it was almost 4pm when we got there. We would't be able to maximize the rides anyway. From Kuala Lumpur, it is a gruelling 6 hour bus ride from their Central Terminal. But if you are from Singapore, crossing the border, the travel time is perhaps just about 45 minutes.
The attraction's entrance is RM65, around 800++ in pesos. It is located in a building which seems to be a shopping hub which some of its parts are still being completed, in Puteri Harbor. There are no buses going to the location, as far as i know so you would need to take a cab. it is a good thing, that Malaysian Cab drivers are really honest and nice. We paid RM20 going to Hello Kitty Town from Legoland and another RM40 from Hello Kitty Town to the border, going back to Singapore.

I wish I knew how to play this thing.
if you step right in to the tub, you will actually hear a sound that the shower makes. Which will kinda make you panicky believing that it is actually water
All tired from the 6 hour KL to JB travel
There are activities lined up each day so make sure to arrive early so you won't miss it. Unlike us who arrive two hours before the park closes, we missed the photo ops with Hello Kitty and Friends.
We managed to catch the parade and sort of Mardi Gras which was really fun, especially the dancing Sanrio Characters. For a moment, I forgot my fear of mascots and just danced and enjoyed it.
I swear she was looking at me.
There are a lot of activity areas for the kids in the park. but of course, no matter how I want to queue in the face paint area or the dress up Kitty booth, it would somehow be awkward having kids lined up with me.
There is this "dark" chamber which shows the darker side of Sanrio, and Kitty and Daniel being held captives. There is a mystery game which guests can participate but we didn't bother. We just wanted to look around anyways.
Kuromi is really scary...
kitty in captive?

At the ground floor of the building, the Red Bow Cafe is located for Hello Kitty serving Hello Kitty treats and things after the tiring but exciting tour of Hello Kitty Town.
I know it looks kind of too old for me, but really when you get there, you'll unleash childhood emotions you never knew actually existed. Or maybe that was a bias statement, of course, coming from a Hello Kitty Fan since the earliest childhood memories I could recall.
