Manual Blogging ft. Hobonichi + Adventures with Abbey & Reesey

Hi everyone!

Just a quick photospam update of what I’ve been up to these weeks~!

As of today, I have 15+ blog entries waiting to be fulfilled starting last month. As much as I’d want to blog so often every after significant day / adventure with a friend, I’m trying my best to focus on enjoying everything first (and ~be more present~) and then finally compiling all the documentation later in blog entry form. Recently, I’ve been enjoying “blogging manually” using my first hobonichi.


I got so addicted to documenting my day that my Day 8 turned out like this. :))

*career mode on!*


I’ve been soooo busy with all the online / web-related work that’s why this very hands-on activity is something that I find very relaxing / stress-relieving.

Reminds me of the time when we were required to write on our “Reading Journal” + my “Hobby Craft Club” days back in elementary.


Writing down my thoughts & exercising my creativity both make me grateful and productive at the same time.

I keep a lot of planners / diaries / notebooks with me so I could write on my personal dreams (as a form of visualization / my way of “calling the universe”) and also for me to practice the self-imposed regular “gratitude exercises” I’ve promised myself to do since years ago.  I have this tendency to be soooo overwhelmed about things so listing down things (no matter how important or unimportant these are) has greatly helped me keep sane and positive.

I’ve realized that people who are thankful about the simple things in life are truly the happiest. My forever goal in life is to be happier & more appreciative than my present state.  ^^



Anyway, enough of mushiness about how much I love this hobonichi activity right now (which I hope would sustain for a very long time haha)..

Let me share some snaps from recent happenings!


Earlier, we went to Chureito Pagoda to take a photo of this very iconic Japan travel shot. Unfortunately, Mt. Fuji was a little bit shy today. Still, thanks to the cherry blossoms! These trees made everywhere more beautiful than it really was.



Snacks my family members bought while we were on a roadtrip.


Shoefie with Abbey & Reesey when we went to Railway Museum.


If you love trains as much as I do, you will love this museum in Saitama!


How cute are these?!


After that, we had an important girly bonding activity. Purikura IS ALWAYS a MUST! :))



They were so into it! :)) I just stepped back and watched them design our photos, haha!


We geeked over gachapons :)) I tried my luck with this Gudetama gachapon machine.. and I didn’t get the avocado one, huhu!


How we bond: notebooks on the table please!


After months of contemplating (#KailaProblems), I finally gave in and bought this handy scissors. This pair is so convenient because it’s shaped like a fat pen. :))


First time to try these kawaii decoration tapes!


Went to “Like a fool” records store in Shindaita, Tokyo to support Reese. Reese had a live performance here 🙂


Allie, Lando & Laura bought some Totoro cream puffs from Shirohige’s!


Before going to Reese‘s gig, we bought pizza.


After 100 photos with the cream puff..  :))


.. and add another hundred instagram-worthy photo attempts :))

Just kidding lolol


We spotted this kawaii Pompompurin corner at Shibuya station ~


We had Sukiyaki for dinner during Abbey‘s last night in Japan. Special thanks to our chef / cook, JustinJapan! :))



And that would be all for now. More stories later!

I can’t wait to blog more about these past weeks’ adventures! 🙂

Have a great (remaining) week, everyone!

Love, カイラ
