Chichibu Kogen Bokujo’s Red Carpet of Poppy Flowers (秩父のポピー)

Hello everyone!

Today, I went on a spontaneous adventure to Chichibu once again! It was actually my third time visiting Chichibu, also known as the home of the famous icicles & shibazakura. Currently, I'm on a mission to spend my "soulful" sundays alone to discover more beautiful parks & sceneries here in Saitama and its neighboring prefectures. ^^ It's funny how I've changed so much over the years. Before, I would prefer going to Tokyo / Harajuku / Shibuya for the kawaii cafes and such (I'm still into cute culture of course) but now, the grandma in me would tell Kaila to just have a kawaii zen day, lolol. Your priorities in life really change when you age, hahaha.

I was actually having second thoughts whether I should run / jog as usual but my soul was craving for some nature / trees / flowers since last week.... so this adventure was ought to be fulfilled haha. I felt like I had to follow my inner voice even though my bed was hugging me so tight earlier this morning. XD

Anyway, let the photos do the narrating~! Enjoy!

Unfortunately, there were no food vendors in the area. I was looking for a softcream / icecream stall! :))

My 2-yr. old icecream umbrella from swimmer should replace for now, haha!

When on a journey in Japan, you must always bring folded sheets of paper with you! Stamp rally activities by JP train stations are just too fun!!

If you can't find the stamp corner, just ask the train staff: "Eki stampu wa doko desu ka? (where is the train stamp?)" hehehe

I always find it fascinating how these train engineers operate the train. So effortless!

Summer Days in Boracay + Hobonichi Diary Updates + Tadaima, Japan!

Hello friends!

Omg, it feels so good to blog again! I think I almost took a month-long hiatus from updating this blog. It really felt weird to not share my thoughts and photos for so long! ;_; My internet connection back in the Philippines was really slow so I thought that I should just enjoy every single day I spent there (instead of getting frustrated over my pocket wifi, lol).

So far, I've been really into journaling / updating my hobonichi. I like doing something creative with my hands and taking photos of my output later on. If you also keep a diary with you, my dear friend Abbey is conducting a survey about journaling and we would appreciate it so much if you could answer it during your spare time. ^^

Anyway, here's the complete Boracay #hobonichi series!

We planned this for almost a year or so. I really saved up and prepared for my entire Philippine trip. I was almost scared that I would exceed my budget but huhu I made it! Maybe I should blog about on how to be a cheapo like me, haha!

But before anything else, here's a fun video that I edited! Smiles and laughs really made our entire trip! ^^

Thank you to my dear friends ChiChi, Kaye, Francis, Ashley and Justin P. for the UNFORGETTABLE week! Let's all travel again together in the future!

We flew to Kalibo from Manila via AirAsia. We were 4/5 hours early for our flight and to our surprise, AirAsia offered us an earlier flight schedule! And we got Business Class seats. I still don't know why we got such an amazing luck that day! :))

Another lucky moment for me and my friends was when we got a free dinner (by the beach + live band omg) from Mamita's Grill at Station 1. We also got to try Parasailing and the famous Boracay submarine.. courtesy of Diamond Watersports. We could have spent a lot of money for the activities / amazing dinner but everything was arranged by Tita Marlene and Tito James (Justin's parents).
