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. ^^

All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.
― 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 :))

Hobonichi With Me | Korea Trip 2017 + Stationery Haul 💙

Arrived at Incheon International Airport!

First night was such a test. I’m thankful for Aki for being able to convince me to just bring one backpack.. because our airbnb was so hard to find, lolol.

We also ate this extremely hot and spicy x 1000 chicken + cheese Korean food. (I already forgot, I’m sorry! If you know, please enlighten me?)

Never consumed so much water in my entire life, lol! Welcome to Korea, Kaila and Aki! :))

They have really cute snacks too! Pokemon and Ryan packaging~ omo ~

Our Kawaii Tokyo E-book + Past Weekends + ABC Mag by Abbey 📔

Hi everyone!

Here is this week’s update & photo dump! Enjoy the photos!

Last night, we’ve finally released our first travel guide e-book project under the Our Kawaii Tokyo brand! It’s a creative guide / compilation of our favorite hangout places in Harajuku, Shibuya & Shinjuku. If you love the things that I visit or hoard (coughs stationery coughs), you will also enjoy exploring around Tokyo with this guide.

Ashley, Allie and I really worked hard on this one (2 years in the making or so, lol #nevergiveup). Allie did the entire layout & everything’s wonderfully done!

We had to change many pages along the way because some shops closed down & we wanted to give the reader a more user-friendly experience (putting ourselves in her/his shoes) so. We hope that you will also enjoy browsing our mini guide. We wish to create more themed travel guides in the future. ^^

The price right now for June 2017 is 1200 JPY. You can purchase it from Rainbowholic Shop. ^^

Illustrations / patterns by Allie. Photos by everybody 🙂

Where To Rent Kimono In Tokyo 👘 + Sakura Hobonichi! 🌸

Hi everyone!

Finally had some time to blog about this~! I’m so happy, yaaaay!

If you haven’t watched it yet, I uploaded this Hobonichi With Me video last week I think.

Hobonichi With Me | Tokyo Kimono Rental + Sakura x Starbucks Japan 👘 🌸

If you are visiting Tokyo this sakura season and you’re interested in renting a kimono, I found a great kimono rental shop that you might want to check out. I discovered this on my own while asking google for help so.. to those who are wondering, this is not a sponsored post. Haha!

Before I write about my experience, let me share these photos of the matcha parfait from Denny’s before Lirei & I went on a kimono date.

……….

okay let’s move on now lol

I booked through their website to reserve the day before. I’m not really sure if walk-in visits are allowed but I think that the shop gets really busy so it’s best to reserve online so you can get your preferred time.

My friend and I availed the Standard Kimono Plan and Standard Hairdo.

Standard Kimono Plan = 3500 -> 2900 (discounted)

Standard Hairdo = 900

All in all, Lirei & I just paid 3800 JPY each. What a reasonable price for an excellent service! I suggest that you also try getting your hair professionally done. : )

If you buy a kimono set and all, it costs a LOT so renting is always the more affordable option. 😉

(though I’d love to own my own kimono set one day, haha. gambarimasu lol)

Kyoto Kimono Rental Wargo Access Guide (Tokyo Sensoji Branch)

They also have photography services and other cool stuff so just roam around their website for more info 🙂

If you are going to Kyoto too, they have many kimono rental shops available. I haven’t tried their services in Kyoto yet though.
