Kansai Spring Trip 2016: Osaka Day 1

Hi everybody!

Last Spring, my dear friend Abbey and I went to have a 3-day trip in Kansai Region (Osaka - Kyoto). It was super fun and unforgettable. Still couldn't forget the time we got ourselves lost because of my very dependable "navigational skills", haha! We booked a night bus from Saitama and we arrived at a VIP Lounge (that's how they call it) somewhere near Osaka station. If you're planning to go to Osaka / Kyoto, booking a night bus (try willerexpress) is an affordable option compared to riding a shinkansen / bullet train.

#Hobonichi With Me Updates + Some Realizations Recently

Hi there!

Been religiously editing videos & it feels so great to just have a creative outlet everyday. My work and my hobbies are actually almost worlds apart ... & I am not complaining. I treat JLM Store 10AM-6PM everyday job as a "school" where I can learn hands-on management. At present, I am the one who is in charge of overseeing all the operations (+ heavy marketing work).  I can't believe that the day wherein we could a hire a part-timer in the office has happened already (and she's a super genki / cheerful 60 yr. old Japanese lady btw). I consider it as one of my milestones.. considering how small we started before.  I can still remember having some crying spells during / after work because of the pressure (self-pressure, I suppose lol) but hey, I'm still alive and smiling! These days, I am just taking everything slow (slowly but surely) even if I am forced to be fast-paced (how contradicting, haha!). Thanks to Manila team (Chichi and Kaye) for always helping me out & working with me so efficiently and effectively. I really appreciate everyone's hard work and dedication! ^_^

Enough of work-related musings, and let's start with the hobonichi diary updates! : ) I sound so different whenever I talk about work, haha!

Just click on the links below to go to the WIP (work in progress) videos of how I arrange my hobonichi pages with different styles.

As you can tell, I'm really, really enjoying this daily hobonichi (video) project / series. Views, shares, likes are just extra stuff for me actually.

Being able to share and practice my skills (analog + digital) = absolute happiness for Kaila ^^
