Hello Kitty Cafe, Adelaide

Hello Kitty Cafe, Adelaide

In front of the old Qubic there was an Asian girl in a pink maid costume with a giant love heart churro trying to attract customers. You could see people do a giant circle to try to avoid her – Adelaide isn’t ready for this level of Asian-ness. I don ...
