Sanrio and YKL Promotion

12 Oct

On October 15, 2010, Friday, Sanrio Philippines launches its newest partnership and promotion with YKL Color, the Philippines’ exclusive distributor of Fujifilm digital products. For a limited time only (until supplies last, that is), a free Hello Kitty camera case and a 2GB SD card will be given free with purchase of a Finepix Z700 EXR or a Finepix Z33 WP from the following branches of Fujifilm Digital Imaging (FDI) shops: SM Fairview, SM Manila, SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM North Edsa Annex and Southgate Mall.

The promotion also includes a free 4R (4″x6″) print for every purchase of PhP1000 at selected Gift Gate branches (Gift Gate SM Mega Mall/Gift Gate Trinoma/Gift Gate Greenhills/Gift Gate Robinsons Ermita/Gift Gate Alabang Town Center).  This promotion runs from October 15 to November 15, 2010.

I like promotions that offer extra products or services, particularly when Sanrio Philippines gets in the picture. (Remember BreadTalkThat was one yummy tie-up that I loved! Nom nom nom nom nom. ) Being a Sony camera fan myself, I find myself oddly drooling at the thought of a really cute camera case (free! Hello Kitty!) for the Fujifilm Finepix. If you’re on the lookout for a new digital camera, consider Fujifilm’s Finepix models and give it a try. I like the Z700 and its good reviews on the Net make it an instant favorite.  

The free print promo is not new but is always a welcome treat. If you can get a free print for buying things you normally would buy even without freebies, then that is simply a lot of sweet icing on the cake.  (Notice how I like metaphors that involve cake?)

Now, if I can only get them to clean up their horrible ad. “Are you vouge* or the adventurous**?” simply smacks of bad spelling and wrong grammar. For a country that prides itself on having English as our second language, it makes me wince to look at it. Please, Sanrio Philippines and YKL Color! Take this down and change this before it’s too late!

Then again, perhaps, I should be more forgiving of bad English; it’s not as if we Filipinos have a monopoly of it. Need proof? Go to or on Facebook  and try happy***!  🙂


* wrong spelling, should be vogue

** should be “or adventurous” or “are you adventurous”

***” Try happy” was’s status message in Facebook on October 1, 2010. It could mean “try to be happy”or simply “be happy.” Whatever.

        Really? I’ve never heard that word before but you never know what you’ll pick up each day!

        Thanks for that piece of geeky info, sis!

    That ad should’ve been proofread.
