Hello Kitty Cafe

This lovely Hello Kitty Cafe delighted my rainy Saturday. In my mind, I am wishing many Filipinos would know that we no longer need to go Sanrio Land, Puroland or Hello Kitty Land, just to taste and experience our all time favorite Hello Kitty sweets. There is one small Hello Kitty Cafe here in Quezon City, Philippines just around the corner of one big mall in North.

My son was so kind to mentioned this Hello Kitty Cafe. My boys are not fond of Hello Kitty, but when I said: "Can we eat there?" They just go straight to the cafeteria.

There is a blessing called in disguise, and I am very grateful to know the difference between being with someone who really loves to be with you no if's, no but's, no matter what? and no matter where? We enjoy the little fancy things together, not because they like Hello Kitty, but because we love to hang out and share each other's moment in our simplest way of showing affection.

In this blog, I will try to tell you that rejection and mistakes are no big deal and that you can learn to completely get over being bothered by them. It hurts to be rejected, never let yourself suffer a setback. We all get nervous when we have to put ourselves out there. No one is totally able not to care. However, some people are better able to handle rejection than others. They can bounce back from it quicker, are able to frame it more constructively, and don't let it affect their self-image as much.

I believe, an obstacle that prevents many people from improving their social skills and going after the life they want is that they fear rejection. They fear being embarrassed in the process of getting turned down. They fear to get the message that they're not good enough. They fear to have to feel worse about themselves. They fear to make a mistake or experiencing a setback that will bring feelings of discouragement and unworthiness.

If I did not voice out to ask my wishes it would not be granted. I know Hello Kitty is only for girls, but because I am confident that there is no harm in trying than being sorry, I may not experience those cute and fancy moments with the most awesome boys in my life.

Once the ball starts rolling it tends to keep going. Hello Kitty of my younger years starts rolling on the 1st month of my new decade.
