Super kawaii movie character cushions?! :b


Totoros (O and Chibi) and friends

CJ7

Before anything else, yes, it's true: Hello Kitty is not the only kawaii critter that I adore. Rather, I also love My Neighbor Totoro's Totoros (especially big and gray O-Totoro) and although I don't like the Stephen Chow movie for which it's the eponymous character all that much, I did come away from my viewing of the film reeeeeally wanting a CJ7 of my own...

...and now I do!!! Granted that it's a CJ7 cushion rather than an alien pet but truly, don't you agree that it's veeeery cute?? At the very least, will say that it is by far the cutest of the CJ7 merchandise I have seen being sold since the movie was released back during this year's Lunar New Year period. And yes, should you wonder, it's veerrrry soft to the touch too. :)))

Such an adorable CJ7 pillow-very very cute!

I'm glad to see O-Totoro, et al have their own chair in your new apartment.

Re CJ7: Isn't it just... and it's very comfortable too! And yeah, I'm actually USING the cushion. Bought it to replace the Totoro cushion which, because of its tail, I found to not be all that comfortable to lean back on when I tried doing so... So now the Totoro cushion is going to 'just' be sofa decoration once more. ;b

But but... What about poor Winki??? You still like it too no?

And yeah the cushions look so cute and comfy, use them with laughter (this is a Turkish well wishing we use)

And last but not least, I hope you enjoy your new apartment and have a great time with it.

I really would want to attend your housewarming party (now that you have a balcony where I can have a smoke break too!!!!)

Hi "eliza bennet" --

OF COURSE I still like -- love -- my Winki Pinki cushion!!!!!!!! The thing though is that it's so fragile now, I'm afraid to let it travel. So it's back in my family home in Malaysia (and yes, I do ask my mother to check on it every once in a while to make sure that it's okay)... :S

And thanks for the apartment wishes. But have to say, balcony and all, absolutely no smoking is allowed at my place!!! ;S

Hi hdoong --

Hmmmmm re sending you one -- and I'm assuming you're going gaga more for the CJ7 than Totoro cushion -- but if you're really serious about wanting one, I'll see about getting one for you -- and keeping for when we next meet (be it in Hong Kong or Malaysia)! ;b

Aww! Both are very cute, but I prefer O-Totoro tho'. I remember watching the cartoon in Japanese with Chinese subtitle (my roomate's CD). I am not familiar with both languages, but I still watch the cartoon till the end. Hoho...

Hi Pelfy --

Movie -- and also character -- wise, definitely prefer "My Neighbor Totoro" to "CJ7". OTOH, must say that my CJ7 cushion rules over the Totoro one... ;b

kitliew said...

Aiyoh....that CJ7 is so cute. Cuter than the one in the movie itself. So fluffy.

Agreed with hdoong. Send one. Send one!!! But before it reaches us, I guess the postman would have taken it for his daughter :P

Hi Kit --

Cute and soft. AND it doesn't seem to mind me using it as a cushion... So, yeah, gotta love that CJ7!

And teehee re your suggestion re the postman! So when are you and hdoong next coming over to Hong Kong then? ;b

kitliew said...

Oh, you mean the poor CJ7 have to smell your butt everyday??? Poor thing :P Heheheee.......

YTSL said...

Hi again kit --

FYI, CJ7 is NOT smelling my butt, just my back... and since it's still smiling, am thinking that it doesn't mind doing so too much! ;DDDDDD

Willow said...

The shaped cushions are cute, I have to admit. haha.

YTSL said...

Hi Willow --

Aren't they just... and then there's also my veeeery adorable Winki Pinki cushion...!

(And Kit, if you're reading this, you should be pleased to know that I was given a non movie character cushion today that I am now using, so CJ7 can "just" be decoration rather than something practical from now onwards! ;b)
