Hello Kitty themed hospital

The 30-bed Hau Sheng Hospital in Yuanlin in central Taiwan is reportedly the world?s first Hello Kitty themed medical establishment.

From blankets and birth certificates to cots and uniforms worn by staff, every aspect of the Hello Kitty hospital is emblazoned with the feline motif.

Patients are welcomed by a statue of Hello Kitty dressed in a doctor?s uniform, before travelling in a Hello Kitty elevator to a pink examination room with Hello Kitty posters on the wall.

The hospital?s director Tsai Tsung-chi opened the ?2m (T$100m) hospital in his hometown after obtaining authorisation from the fictitious cat?s Japanese parent company Sanrio Co Ltd.

Well, it's not the weirdest Hello Kitty-themed thing in the universe. Nor, I'm sure, is this little gem I stumbled upon earlier in the year but I had forgotten about it until now:

Hello Kitty

Yes, it's real.

Yeah, that's practically a fixture here now. I've seen it about every six months or so for years at this point.
