The Giving Journal 2015 by The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Philippines

A few weeks ago, Anne and I got invited by the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Philippines to their planner / Giving Journal 2015 launch. <3

Of course, we were both excited to go because not only we both love Coffee Bean but....

... we actually had our first "official meeting" for Kawaii Philippines / relaunch at a CBTL branch (Greenbelt) as well, last year!  :yehey:

And I spent most of my brainstorming sessions (alone or with the team / Anne) at Coffee Bean too! So tripleeee yay! :D


They had a fun craft activity and we were all tasked to make our own bookmark using this wire.

We had to come up with our "goal" / "dream" / "focus" for the next year (2015).

Some people chose "invest", "save", "happiness" and the like.. and I chose kawaii, hahaha. Of course, that was really unexpected of me! :))

Promoting Kawaii Culture and Creativity @ TLC Weekend Festival 2014

Two weeks ago, Kate of TLC (Travel and Lifestyle Channel) Philippines emailed us at Kawaii.PH for a possible collaboration together. Even though our schedule for the following weeks had been set already, I didn't hesitate to grab this chance!

Here at Kawaii Philippines, we want to share and introduce "kawaii" in different venues. Events are not limited to cosplay conventions / fashion bazaars and the like! Last time, we event promoted kawaii in "MATA Expo"!

We really want to spread the happy kawaii virus through various activities. Honestly, we weren't really prepared for it (as we were just contacted 1 week before) but because everyone helped out, we were able to conduct a very successful kawaii workshop to almost 30+ people (of all ages)!

And it was all for free~! So much happiness that day~
