Gudetama has been my obsession lately and I knew there would be tons of Gudetama stuff in Hong Kong for me to indulge in. Boy oh boy did I indulge. Everywhere in Hong Kong, Gudetama graced his presence. I mean seriously, from tissue packs to McDonalds, you name it and he will be there. Let’s just say he was my guardian angel when I was in Hong Kong. As tribute, I almost bought everything that I could and that was in my budget. So let’s get into the haul!! WEEEE~~ ＼(^▽^＠)ノ
Throughout the three weeks of be exploring Hong Kong, I found most of these items at 7-11 and Circle K surprisingly. Gudetama was seriously everywhere. From fast food restaurants like McDonald’s and Yoshinoya to convenience stores like 7-11 and Circle K, Gudetama seriously is everywhere you turn. Companies in Asia understand Gudetama is the Justin Bieber and they promote the heck out of him. Luckily for them, they have suckers like me who’d buy extra stuff just to be able to redeem free gifts. ≧ω≦
In my day 2 Hong Kong adventure post, I bought a crap ton of nick nacks on the first day there in just ten minutes at the 7-11 downstairs. There was a gudetama shrine in the corner filled with Gudetama happiness. Luckily for me, not tons of people went to that 7-11, so I had a big selection of stuff to choose from even on my last day. The first item I picked up was this canvas bag for $65 HKD ($10 CDN). I kind of didn’t want to pick it up at first, but I as scared it would be gone if I were to second guess so I just picked it up for the heck of it. The material is quite nice and thick and I’d definitely be using this bag so it’s not a bad purchase.
7-11 also had cup noodles with gudetama. $12 HKD ($2 CDN) for 3 and no i didn’t really have to buy these but hey… it’s gudetama. LOL I’ve eaten one already and it’s nothing special. It just taste like chicken, that’s all.
The luggage belt ($45 HKD- $7 CDN) was also one of the first things I picked up on my first trip to 7-11. Again, luckily I bought it without thinking which is a good thing in this case since this was the only one I saw in all of the 7-11 I have went in. This belt is also on ebay, but they are selling it for $29.99 USD… holy cows.
The second time I went into another 7-11 nearby, they also had a good selection of gudetama stuff to choose from, ON SALE! WHATSUPPP. I’ve seen this luggage tag on instagram, so when I saw it, into the cart it goes :P. I don’t remember exactly how much it was but I think it was $25 HKD ($4 CDN). Gudetama in a shell bikini, how can you say no.
It’s always good to have unique luggage belts because luggages really all look alike, especially if you buy whatever is available at Costco like most of us and it is usually black, the worse color to pick.
Of course, I had to get the water bottle! I’ve been doing pretty good with my water intake lately. I never used to like water but for some reason, I’ve been drinking a lot of it. Of course, downside of that is having to go to the washroom constantly. I paid $38 HKD ($6.23 CDN) which is super cheap compared to anything you could get online.
Best part, Gudetama’s butt of course!
I remember on the first day, I saw this pouch but I told myself I don’t need it since I have so many pouches at home. The whole time I was in Hong Kong, I kept thinking about it for some reason, meaning I really wanted it. I kept trying to find it, thinking it was the 7-11 that was in the mall but I couldn’t find it. On the last day, after I gave up and just went to the one downstairs to have one last look at what I wanted to buy with the rest of the money i still had, I FOUND IT! I don’t remember how much this was since the lady didn’t give me a receipt, but I think it was $35 HKD ($5.35 CDN). It is a thick canvas with a rubberized Gudetama design in the front.
They also had some stuff that was kinda not necessary but still ended up in my chart somehow. On the left side, it is a plastic container ($15 HKD- $2.50 CDN) with Gudetama doing the Superman dance with gummy candies inside. The one in the middle are deco stickers with gum ($13 HKD-$2.13 CDN) which is seriously useless but in the moment, I thought it was a good idea for some reason. I also found these tin ($17 HKD-$2.75 CDN) with mints inside on my last week there. I’ve never seen this design before and thought it would be good to keep cards or coins.
My cousin actually learned that I really liked Gudetama and even brought me to a Gudetama themed cafe out in Metroplaza. When we sat down, she gifted me the micro cloth on the left. The one on the right I found on my last day there. Both were $15 HKD each ($2.46 CDN).
She also gifted me this note pad HAHA. He’s picking his nose, it can’t get better then that. I honestly have no idea how much this was.
I’ve been meaning to get a mouse pad for the longest time, so this is perfect. For $15 HKD ($2.46 CDN) can’t really go wrong.
I think these passport holders are one of my favourite purchases. These were $15 HKD each ($2.46 CDN) The material is really sturdy, design is cute and the inside gets better too! There is also an ebay posting for this but they are $8-$10.
eBay posting: Design on the left, design on the right
In the back, there is two slots to hold cards which is perfect!!
Couple items I didn’t get at 7-11 or Circle K. I got these items at my aunt’s store which is filled with Sanrio nick nacks. Of course, I picked some Gudetama stuff but it was quite expensive if I do say so myself. The stickers on the left was $25 HKD ($4.10 CDN), the mystery box was $35 HKD ($5.74 CDN) and a card holder for $128 HKD ($20.00 CDN).
I plan to stick these on my forehead. HAHA yes I’m still a child that loves herself some stickers.
I think I’ll keep this next to my computer to keep me company.
I wanted a cardholder for the longest time with Gudetama on it but there was only one design and I wasn’t a fan. When I saw this, I knew it was the one. I’ve never seen Gudetama so fly! Dj Gude whatsup! This also has a retractable strap~
I’m totally keeping this card in the cardholder haha.
At the bookstore that sells pens and school supplies, they had this medium sized document holder $21 HKD ($3.44 CDN). At that time, I printed some photos that I had to give away, so I bought this to hold some of it. There were also stickers for $8 HKD ($1.31 CDN)
At Mong Kok’s ladies market, I bought this reusable bag which just so happen to be a lifesaver. I didn’t know Hong Kong didn’t give out plastic bags after the new law that passed not to long ago on April 1. Make sure you guys bring a sturdy, big reusable bag if you are planning to come to Hong Kong.
I also got couple of keychains from those mystery ball machines, $20 HKD and $40 HKD. The top one I was hoping to get either the laying down Gudetama or the cake one but sadly I got the monk one -_-. The bottom ones wasn’t my first choice either. I was again hoping for the ones that were laying down but I got TWO OF THE SAMEN ONE. WHAT THE HELL! HAHA oh well….
Circle K wasn’t a place I saw any Gudetama stuff but I really wanted the timer they were having as their “gift with purchase”. I was in the MTR one day and passed a Circle K with Gudetama nick nacks and I said “finally, I have a reason to spend money and get that timer!” I know, as stupid as it sounds, I really wanted that that timer. I picked up a tin can with chocolate cookies ($24 HKD- $3.94 CDN) and two tin boxes of mints ($23 HKD- $3.77 CDN).
Other then the timer and the eye mask, the other items they had were kind of useless. There was also Gudetama headphones but they aren’t in this picture and was definitely one of the things people were gunning for.
One of the things that caught my eyes was this glass cup. Yes I don’t need more cups, but I don’t have cup with GUDETAMA ON IT! 😛 I don’t remember exactly how much it was but it was something around the $29 HKD ($4.76 CDN).
If you survived through all that blabbering, congratulations. HAHA It is finally the end of the post. Tell me what is your favourite item of the haul and if your country has Gudetama as well. I know he is taking Asia by storm but not sure about the rest of the world. Let me know in the comments down below!
