Cardcaptor Sakura Exhibition: The Enchanted Museum! 🌸

Hi all!

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!

Crazy October + Stationery Meet-up in Saitama + Kawaii Harajuku Tour!

Hi everybody!

How have you been guys? Hope you’re all having a great time wherever you are. Can you believe it’s already November?? I am so shocked, hahaha!

Left: When I dress up for an event

Right: Love collecting stamps!

Preview photos of the Kawaii Harajuku Tour (more photos below!)

October was such a busy yet very fulfilling month for me.

I had a spontaneous trip to Fukushima Prefecture (which I have yet to blog about), had a kawaii Harajuku tour for a client, now connected with an agency, started looking for a potential #rainbowholicstudio place, hosted a stationery / journaling meet-up (& had a blast!), broke a rainbowholic-shop.com record, continued with English teaching gigs every week, packed & shipped orders, achieved my monthly patreon goals, and so much more.

Thankfully, I am still getting by even with all the amount of workload. I already reached my limit that’s why I’ve decided to take another instagram break + set tier limits for my patreon… which felt like a huge relief after implementing these changes, haha. Implementing lol. I love interacting more on youtube / patreon so I will focus my energy on these platforms instead. This November might be hella crazier and I need to prepare myself for it. Looking forward to all my scheduled self-care days y’all, lol.

Anyway, enough of paragraphs, here are some photos taken recently! πŸ™‚

Rainy Day at Rabbit Island (Okunoshima) 🐰

Hi everybody!

I’m back with an overdue blog entry from months ago. Here’s the continuation of our 9 days in Japan backpacking series! Once I’m done with this (almost halfway… go Kaila go!!), I will post our itinerary exclusively onΒ patreonΒ (for all tiers).

As I was editing the photos, I couldn’t help but smile and reminisce about these times during our backpacking trip. It was a rainy day for us but the weather didn’t stop us to visit one of the dreamiest places in Japan for me!

We stayed for a few days in Hiroshima. On our last day, we checked out early from our airbnb and put our backpacks inside a coin locker at JR Hiroshima station.

* How to go to Rabbit Island from JR Hiroshima Station *

Take the train bound to Hiro station. From Hiro, get the train going to Tadanoumi. Use Google Maps to find the port within the area. For the access guide, this link is helpful.

*some handpicked photos from the 100+ photos lol*

Friendly tip, buy rabbit food from the grocery (if you can) to save money. We bought this cabbage from a FamilyMart kombini adjacent to the Tadanoumi train station.

Enough of the teaser photos, let’s get started with some narration!

Starting the day right with morning journaling ~
