Here's a mini progress report of Kaila's Rainbowholic Cafe dream.
I think that progress reports for every dream are essential, so we all can track if we are indeed moving and making things happen, hehe!
Initially, I planned to have the "virtual" kawaii cafe to be launched first... but because I'm the crazy one who does everything (though I have amazing creative & super helpful friends huhu!) and I had to concentrate on Kawaii in Manila 2 convention, I had to take a pause in this web project for sometime.
But the visualizing and dreaming and working hard didn't stop~ I just went to another direction and had adventures, haha! :-)
And soooooo~ last Kawaii in Manila 2, Rainbowholic Cafe pop-up booth HAPPENED!
Many thanks to my friends from CRAEN Manila (who also actualized our dream convention) for this! Salamat Raymund, Jhoana and Mikee!
At Rainbowholic Cafe booth~ My childhood friends helped me out! Thank you Leo and Aya~ and JJ too!
Last year, I showed my doodles to my ever-so-supportive bestfriend from childhood (up to now!! hihi).. Aya!
And my amazing Interior Designer bestfriend designed my dream Rainbowholic Cafe for me! With all the measurements and 3D huhuhuhuhu..
*beyond thankful* *cries*
I love my bestfriend! <3
Thank you IDr. Aya Liban!!
Wooden texture + colors!! AHHH <3 PERFECT!!!
Someday, Kawaii.PH HQ + Rainbowholic Cafe in one place!!! For now, we have Kawaii.PH HQ first hehehe~
A few months ago, Marco (le photo buddy), introduced me to Christian, who is a talented musician / composer (and somewhat comedian, haha kidding) from Indonesia!
Thank you Cappy Girl!!! #CapricornGirls hehehe <3
A few months ago, Rich King, one of my friends from AdCreate (who I used to train for officership, and is now a designer specializing in product / package design .. and who became VP for Creative as well like me in her era), surprised me with a package design for Rainbowholic Cafe!!! OMG HUHUHU I feel so blessed and lucky to have friends and colleagues who are too generous in sharing their EXPERTISE!!! I value everyone's time because time / hours can mean hours for work / pay... so I'm really grateful!! :")
This is really off-topic but I'm just so proud of this girl because her DANCING GROOT PAPERCRAFT really went VIRAL! I'll make sure I have dancing groots displayed in Rainbowholic Cafe as well. Haha!
Kawaii characters conceptualized by me and ChiChi / Little Miss Paintbrush! THANK YOU TWIN ALWAYS!!!
Haggard look last Kawaii in Manila 2 but really thankful for the support! TT_TT
... and finally, here's a sneak-peek of the virtual kawaii cafe!!
Honestly, I'm already 70% done with the coding / webdesign...
.. I will really just do my best to launch it as soon as possible. I don't really like ideas to stay as ideas for a long time.. so gambarimasu!! ^_^
