Reunited With My College Friends! + Taiwan Kawaii Travel Diary

Hello everybody!

It's been a week since my Taiwan trip with my univ friends and IT WAS SUCH A BLAST waaaaah ~

We planned this entire trip since late 2015 and finally, it happened! Why does it feel like I just dreamt about it??? *_*

I can't wait to blog the entire series! 

If you are thinking about exploring Asia, Taiwan is definitely one of my recommended countries. If you are a Studio Ghibli / kawaii fan, then you will definitely LOVE Taiwan!

Never been in a place with so many Totoro / Ghibli stuff! I even found a milktea place with No Face packaging design, haha.

Spirited Away's visuals / sceneries were heavily inspired by this wonderful place called "Jiufen".

So delighted to know that Taiwan also does the stamp-collecting trend! Was able to influence my friends Kat & Lora to go on a stamp rally with me.

Here's the bunch who knew Kaila before she became a full-blown "Rainbowholic". I would tell these people about my dreams and my Japan-related preparations before. They were very supportive of me and for that, I am so grateful for having them in my life. We many not communicate 24/7, but I know that when the group needs to meet, everyone would make time for each other! :")

They were my family (and still are!) during my college years when we were all active in doing organization-related work. We've been through events, meetings, foodtrips, gimmicks, and so much more!

Getting to bond with them AFTER ALL THESE YEARS for a few days was a dream come true for me too. Any day with a great friend is an automatic blessing for me ^^

I will blog about how to make a mini travel diary kit if you don't want to bring your entire journal with you! : )

Thank you so much Carla, Lora, Kat, Patrik, Mina, Rosemina, Marianne, Cle and JM for the splendid time we had with each other!

I will never forget these days. Thank you for sending me off while I was trying my best to not tear up while you waved me goodbye huhu.

You guys are the best. Thank you for believing in me and for being my positive-lovin' group! I would definitely not be where I am today if it were not for your encouragement and companionship from waaaay, waaay back before.

I can't wait for our part two! ;)

Love,

Your friend from Japan,

Kai
