Hello Kitty high-tops

You can imagine my delight when I saw these Hello Kitty high-tops in a shop window in Hong Kong (fyi: I’m enjoying a week’s holiday here at the moment).

So you can also imagine my disappointment when Kai said he would not buy them for my birthday… which is only a few weeks away. I mean, they are the perfect gift – right?

Please leave Kai a message below as to why you think he should buy them for me. Together we can convince him… surely?

  1. UB is freezing cold and these will keep her cozy and warm which in turn will make her happy … and happy wife = happy hubby !!!!!

  2. Definately got to get those Kai Kai. I know you will.
    In the old days I wouild just get them if you didn’t want to play but me being thousands of miles away, it will come down to you. Don’t let me down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I am pretty sure that in the constitution of marriage it states (and I may be paraphrasing), “forsaking all others I agree to buy my wife the ‘Hello Kitty’ hiptops of her choosing. Forever and ever Kitty, Amen”. Failing that just tell Kai that it is the law.

  4. Thank you all for your messages left here, on Facebook and the many emails I received.

    Now that our Honkers holiday is finished, I know you are all dying to know the outcome of the Hello Kitty high-top drama.

    In fairness to Kai, he got so far as to hand over his credit card to the nice man in the shop.

    I can’t believe I am about to say this, but it is me who bailed.

    I know, I know… I am still in shock myself.

    But hear me out…

    I tried them on. I fell in love with them. I visualised myself wearing the white, fluffy (yes, they were fluffy – I know – totally amazing!)… anyway, I visualised myself wearing them around the clean streets of Brisbane.

    Oh hang on, wait, no, what clean city in Australia do I live in these days?

    Oh no, that’s right – I live in dusty ol’ UB, where the footpaths are paved with dust and blocked drains are not a problem because there are no drains to be blocked. What else? Hmm… oh you’ll like this… open man holes on roads are a huge problem for err, the cars driving on them and pedestrians walking on them.

    And I know what you are thinking now… when has practicality ever gotten in the way of fashion? But this is Hello Kitty we are talking about I could not do this to her! She deserves better.
