Konbanwa from Japan!
Before I go to sleep, I just feel like blogging. It’s been quite a hectic week for me ever since I came back from the (tiring but fulfilling) backpacking trip and unloading all of my thoughts right now seems to be the best idea to end the night, haha!
To start this blog entry, let me just plug this teaser video I’ve created. It’s just short (hopefully sweet, lol) and I hope that it would make you want to look forward to the entire video series I’m working on! 🙂
My goal is to edit these video clips we’ve taken in a more creative / ~aesthetic~ way than the usual Japan travel vlogs / videos. I might include some Hobonichi With Me videos as well towards the end.. or not. Let’s see, haha!
At the same time, I’m also working on layouting chosen photos for my blog.
Many are asking about my itinerary so will post about that (hopefully) soon! 🙂
Of course, if you’re gonna travel around Japan.. another fun activity to add is to document it the analog way.
If you’ve noticed, my youtube videos now kinda leveled up because yayyy intro ~
I worked with a super talented artist / designer for the youtube intro & outro clips. Dream realized by Winnie!
And this is the part where I become random haha
Spring means loads of sakura-related content over at Japan Lover Me!
Finally spotted the Milky Soft pan / pancake spread!! ;_;
The lemon lover in me went straight to heaven once she tried the Pocky Double Lemon flavor~
IDK how Japan does it but why is everything cute?? Gudetama packaging already got me sold lol.
Weeks ago during my usual commute to work, I would read this book entitled “Big Magic” by Elizabeth Gilbert. Big Magic was recommended by my friend (hi Dreaaaaa) months ago. I bought it on impulse and for some reason, it got lost inside my room (my apartment is like a shipment fulfillment center lol). And then one random afternoon, I just found it and it felt like the book was pressuring me to read it (“for God’s sake Kaila, read me!!” lol). Of course, I gave in haha~
Little did I know that it would really open up my mind. I highly recommend this book to fellow creatives.
Whether you’re a full-time artist, hobbyist, and the like, I think that this book might be relatable.
I really learned a lot that I had to take down notes lolol. It made me think about my creative career. It’s straight to the point and inspirational at the same time. I still have a couple of pages (for now, I only read when I’m commuting lol) and I don’t even want it to end, haha!
Thanks for reading until the end! I feel so sleepy now .. :))
