Hobonichi Techo 2018 Lineup Preview Event at Tobichi 🌈 📓

Hi everyone!

Today, I went to Tobichi for their Hobonichi 2018 Lineup Preview. It wasn’t my first time to attend a preview event by ほぼ日 and you can check out last year’s lineup event report here.

After doing some work errands for Rainbowholic Shop, I went straight to Minami Aoyama from Shinjuku.

To go to Tobichi / Tobichi 2, just take the Tokyo Metro bound for Omotesando and the nearest exit to Tobichi store is A4 exit.

To those who are wondering, my hobonichi planner right now is the A6 Size (Hobonichi Techo Original) but in avec version. Avec is for people who love overdoing their journals (if there is such thing, haha). It has 2 books / parts (January – June, July – December).

A Super Kawaii Time at Kiiroitori Diary x Tower Records Cafe in Tokyo 💛

Hi everyone!

Yesterday, my fellow stationery addict friend Knatt, her little sister and I had a kawaii treat at a limited Kiiroitori Diary x Tower Records Cafe. It’s located just a few steps away from Kiddyland Harajuku / Omotesando.

The cafe will run until September 10, 2017. If you are in Tokyo, I’d suggest lining up for this! 🙂

We didn’t see the line so when we went straight to the cafe, the staff assisted us where to queue. As expected, the waiting system was so organized.

As much as I love kawaii cafes, I’ve been training myself to not crave for too much sweets lately.

And is it so weird that I haven’t been to the famous Kawaii Monster Cafe ever? I just can’t imagine eating all the food coloring and everything, haha! That’s why I got so relieved when I saw their menu and found out that they offer taco rice, which is one of my faves, haha!

Every corner is instagram-friendly so if you love taking photos, this place is really nice 🙂

If you started to read my blog years before, you would know how obsessed I was with Rilakkuma!

For some reason, it brought some nostalgia back haha, lol. I’ve already passed the crown to my super Rilakkuma fan friend, Knatt ~ :)) I’m a Gudetama fan convert now, lol.

Kamakura’s Ajisai Gardens + Rainbowholic Shop Updates + Life Recently

Hi all!

Here’s my creative photo spam report of our Kamakura adventure last month. Many thanks to Yumiさん for helping me out with the videos and for all the inspiring conversations with you. :”)

Hope you guys enjoy the photo collages as much as I enjoyed making them. ^^

From Tokyo Station, it’s almost an hour away by JR Line (920 JPY for one way). For the directions using Google Maps, please click here.

Ride the JR Yokosuka Line bound for ZUSHI and get off at Kamakura station. You can explore the area by riding the buses or enjoy “Enoden”, their cute little train. Since this is a very touristy spot, there are many passengers riding this train.

I would recommend traveling to Kamakura during a weekday instead of a weekend. We went on a Friday and it was already super packed, what more if it was a weekend, omg lol ~

VIDEO: Hobonichi With Me | Kamakura for Ajisai / Hydrangeas (Hasedera Temple & Meigetsu-in) 💜

Before embarking on any adventure here, as a Japan travel fan, I would recommend that you visit the station’s tourist information booth as they have LOADS of free travel information especially in a place like Kamakura. We originally wanted to visit Meigetsu-in (Ajisai Temple) because of its famous ajisai pathway photo (for the love of #instagram lol). However, we thought it was located at Hasedera Temple since it’s also known for its blue & purple seas of Ajisai. Our target / main goal that day was to take a similar photo of that pathway but we had an interesting change of plans, as I have mentioned haha.

If you are planning to cover these two temples in one day during the next Ajisai season, I would suggest that you arrive earlier (maybe 10AM) and go straight to Meigetsu-in (Kita Kamakura) first to avoid the flock of local and foreign tourists. After that, have some quick lunch and ride the Enoden back at Kamakura station for Hasedera Temple. Upon entering the temple, go to the entrance and get a number and wait for your turn to queue. Don’t forget to hydrate yourself when exploring around Japan during summer! It was too hot that day, lolol.

Seoul Trip: Petite France + Nami Island + Kakao Friends Store 🇰🇷

Hi everybody!

After 3 hours of editing, compiling, and arranging everything.. I’ve finally arrived the last step of blogging!

The actual blogging, of course! Lololol ~

Here’s the final installment of my Seoul trip series with Aki! You can check related posts here. ^^

― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

During our 3rd day in Seoul, we decided to take a day trip to Petite France & Nami Island.

I’m a huge fan of Little Prince (like my friend Ashley!) & I remember seeing some clips of this beautiful place from a Korean Drama called “My Love from the Star“. Being able to visit this colorful pastel wonderland with Aki was truly memorable for me.

Before entering Petite France, we first ate lunch at the kombini located in front of it. I absolutely love people-watching while eating with this person lol.

And the non-stop “Take picture of me please~” requests started at this point lololol

Thank you stranger for helping us achieve my kdrama dream :))
