Ramen and Cupcake Time with My Creative Team
Yesterday, one of my dreams in life (to be a Creative Director in a somewhat-agency) came true.
I finally had a not-so-formal formal meeting with my lovely teammates (who are also my Kawaii Lovin' friends)! We're just a small team of Kawaii (Japan)Lovers but I believe that each of us is great in our own forte. Yayyy.. small but terrible team! :)) Terrible in another sense, of course, haha!
To commemorate the day, I decided to treat them with yummy ramen from RYU Ramen & Curry (a new restaurant near our area)! Hopefully someday (*next year* *crosses fingers*), I can also bring them to Japan so we can all enjoy eating ramen together there (with MishieWishie flying for us all the way from NY too, haha!). Our angel investor (my brother) has been very supportive of our projects ever since I started JapanLover.me with just ChiChi and Mishie (which gave birth to many ideas).
Even if our budget is super constricted, I am proud to say that we have been maximizing everything that has been given to us! ;__;
My dreams are getting bigger and coincidentally, I'm meeting people who share the same visions that I do. Amazeballs! ;_;
Achievement unlocked! <3
After our 2-hr. stay in the Ramen place, we finally finished the first half of our meeting! :))
Anne's "Jeremy Scott" x Kawaii Girl shoes :)))))))
JapanLover.me's newest additions, Anne and Kaye! and with my co-founder / super talented Illustrator twinnie, ChiChi!
After that, we went to Vanilla Cupcake Bakery for some desserts!
Makes me remember the first time ChiChi and I had some cupcakes @ the Trinoma Mall branch! We were only two by then! ;__;
Kaye wearing her ENJI x JapanLover.me "かわいい" necklace! Now available @ Rainbowholic Shop (shipping within PH only)!!
I tried to be fierce :))))
