Thanks for visiting my blog! : ) I won’t be updating here as regularly as before as I’m focusing on sharing through patreon / other platforms right now (I am currently preparing for something very important that I cannot disclose at the moment) but I’m planning to at least share some blog-worthy moments of January. January is my birthday month which is automatically a special month for me, haha.
For 3 days, Aki & I traveled to 3 prefectures (unintentionally haha). Read the first part & 2nd part (with travel tips) over at patreon.
I remember feeling super overwhelmed by work that time. I didn’t have any choice because I had 2 trips this month (bday/holiday/anniv trip + attending a friends’ wedding/family time) and I wanted to really enjoy both trips so I worked extra hard in the other days. Thankfully, I’m still alive and kicking today.
Gifu & the cute Sarubobo charms everywhere.
It is so nice to forget all of your worries and problems in a day.
Sorry for the lack of updates during the second half of the year. phew
I had to give my maximum effort to make this goal a reality before 2018 ends.
Rainbowholic Studio is no longer a dream but a real space where I can freely create content, hold workshops / meet-ups, and fulfill orders for rainbowholic-shop.com.
I used to do everything in this small Japanese apartment… ;_; I was so inspired to work extra hard so that I can finally spend a happier self-care time here in my apato (apartment) without seeing “work” everywhere (packing supplies / boxes), lol.
It wasn’t easy and it was such an “uncomfortable” journey for me to pursue as I juggle many jobs ( teacher / entrepreneur / stationery store / custom kawaii tokyo tour guide ) but I’m so glad everything has fallen into place. ;_;
I had to set aside a good amount of money every month to be able to afford the “heavy” first month of payments. My savings made it just in time, lol!
More feelings here.
If you haven’t watched my #ThankYouPatrons / patreon journey video, please do! ^^
(Note lol: Couch / other displays not mine. This was when we were checking apartment options (it took a month!!)
From this… (stamping postcards at a kombini with my bestfriend ) ….
Last Tuesday, I went to Roppongi Hills in Tokyo for the Cardcaptor Sakura Exhibition with my childhood bestfriend Aya (from Manila)! It was a super heart-warming experience for me and Aya because we used to watch Cardcaptor Sakura during our adolescent years (lol). Imagine being in the same city with your childhood best friend & visiting a special exhibition that is extremely close to both of your hearts? It was such a great memory that I would love to reminisce & reminisce again! :”)
All the feels!

Here is my Kyoto photo diary from the 9 Days Japan Backpacking Series. Hope you enjoy scrolling down below! 🙂
Ahhh Kyoto, I wanna visit you during autumn season too!
First things first–
Must visit the matcha kingdom UJI, Kyoto.
Rent a kimono and go around the city to take beautiful photos.
Look at all the souvenir items you wanted to bring home with you but you had to resist as you only have a backpack . . .
