WRAPPLE Workshop Cafe + Travelling Hobonichi 2018 Meet-up ?

Hello everybody!

Yesterday, I attended my first Travelling Hobonichi event hosted by my dear friend, Esther (@esthermolinart)! I met this crazy and super kind bunch of stationery lovin’ people back when Momo (@momolovespaper) invited me to join a stationery meet-up at Tokyu Hands Cafe.

It was my first time at a Wrapple store / branch and I was SO amazed by everything! Imagine a workshop cafe filled with stationery?! There’s a stationery cafe (Bunbougu Cafe) in Tokyo too but I love this space more. It’s accessible too because it’s just next to Tokyu Hands Shibuya. I asked the staff about the shop (couldn’t believe I just discovered it now lol) and she told me it was just pretty new (built 6 months ago).

(this was during my first stationery meet-up with Tokyo folks)

BGM washi tapes just really make you want to travel around the world haha

The ABCs of Journaling Book Launch + Philippine Souvenir Jacket ??

Hi all! Long time no blog, haha!

Last weekend, I went to Manila to give my full support to my friend Abbey!

I only told a few people about this since it would be really just a super short visit. Man, I arrived at 2AM last Saturday and left the next day.. because #work. *_*

Anyway, The ABCs of Journaling book launch was such a fun & intimate event with her family, friends, readers and supporters. It was my first time to witness this “other side” of Abbey because whenever she’d have a big event / workshop.. I’d miss it because #LDR. ;_; This time, I made sure that Kaila The Stage Friend would be there!

Summary of what happened, haha!

Seeing her on stage and listening to her speech.. omg I also teared up. ;_; I told myself.. “Gurrrl, compose thyself!!” But of course, I could not contain it :))

I literally witnessed with my own eyes how she would pour her all to create things and art (she visited me here in Saitama last 2015 & this Spring 2016). You could tell how hands-on she was with all the fun & in-demand booths during the event + how well-prepared everything was!

It’s so funny how most of our realized dreams started as half-hearted statements / jokes. She joked about me being the “sticker artist”. Weeks later, I started to sell stickers / stationery online and I got addicted to stickers more lol.

From sticker artist, to sticker sponsor.. in her own event. Hahhahaha omg

Many thanks to my friends for coming to support her too!

Mica was our Kawaii PH press person that day (thank you, Mica!). I really missed Anne & Chichi as well, huhu!

It feels weird because 2 years ago, Abbey was the one who was supporting me / Kawaii PH during the Kawaii in Manila 2 event. Years later, we’re all there for her. <3

I can still remember the time when she was just telling me about this over Skype!

Months later, here it is! She gave birth to another baby, haha! And boy.. the labor was hard, lolol (labor of love, that’s why haha). I’m a (proud) witness of this #theroadtoabc2016 journey!
