As a toy collector, I do have quite a number of my Doreamon reviews on some collections of Doreamon in this blog.
As my family are a fan of Doreamon, we do have some Doraemon display in our home even when we decorate my first child baby bed with Doreamons!
Whenever Doraemon reached out to the pockets, I know that something exciting will happen. The gadgets, medicines, and tools from the future seems to be a solution for every problem. I always wanted to see how the gadgets will be in real life in the near future.
Guess what? Here is a chance for me to have a glimpse of such possibilities in Hong Kong!
From August 14 to September 16, Harbour City will be hosting the “100 Years Before the Birth of Doraemon” Exhibition. This exhibition will be Hong Kong’s largest celebration in honour of this
beloved anime character. September 3 marks the exact day 100 years priorto Doraemon's birth.
“100 Doraemon with 100 Different Secret Gadgets” – Concept Expo: Gadgets in the Future
Inspired by Doraemon’s secret gadgets, “100 Years Before the Birth of Doraemon” is inviting creative parties from around the world to participate. Included are creatives from Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and more, each on hand to specially create and design 30 original gadgets. Each design has been directly influenced by Doraemon's own futuristic world. All of their specially crafted works will be displayed at the Gallery by the Harbour at Harbour City.
“The Famous Scene”
To carry on the campaign's theme of friendship, future and dreams, three famous installations will be set up at different parts of Harbour City including “The Night Before Nobita’s wedding!”, “Goodbye, Doraemon!” and “Memories of Grandma.”
Pop up Café
For the duration of the exhibition, the BO-LO’GNE café and bar located inside Harbour City’s LCX will be transformed into a pop-up Doraemon themed café. Besides an immersive experience, there will be dishes prepared specially for the occasion. The new menu items include a Doraemon spaghetti and hamburger set, a delicious dessert set served with a special themed drink and a BO-LO’GNE bun. Fans will also be given the opportunity to buy a limited edition “100 Years Before the Birth of Doraemon” souvenir plate.
During the exhibition period, Harbour City will be hosting workshop sessions at KidX that welcomes parents and their children to participate in creating, designing and decorating their own personalized Doraemon figures. This is great for my kid!!
These are good reason for me a Doraemon fan to visit together with my family of 3 if possible in HK!!
The last time I visited Harbour City was about 3 years ago and I do have a great time watching the night scene of Hong Kong, walking the walk of frame and having some good food there and most importantly great toys to buy! LOL
I wished I can be invited to go for this creative and hype Doreamon event in Hong Kong and a chance to meet some Doreamon fans in Hongkong and around the world. If I happen to be the selected few, I will surely give you guys more coverage on the 100 Years Before the birth of Doreamon event
Meanwhile if you plan to visit Hongkong during this period or you are reside in Hongkong, visit this cool event!!
