ABCxRainbowholic Workshop in Tokyo + March Hobonichi Diary 🌸

Hi all!

It’s currently 3:00 am here in Japan and I’m still awake. Figured I should attempt to blog so that I can feel sleepy afterwards. Netflix isn’t working tonight.. so it must be my brain wanting to unload some thoughts, lol.

Here is a photo of the beautiful cherry blossom tree near my brother’s place. I can still remember the feeling when it was giving us a pink shower with the wind and all. Super surreal.

It’s getting warmer and warmer everyday and my icecream cravings are hard to control now, haha!

Workshop at Cafe Stay Happy with Abbey was a big success! Arigatou to everybody who helped us a lot! 🙂

Long talks and lots of laughter with this one. Thanks for the constant push and inspiration, Abbey!

This might look effortless to some people but this talent / skill was honed through YEARS of nonstop practice. BIG respect! Continue reading


Our Kawaii Tokyo E-book + Past Weekends + ABC Mag by Abbey ?

Hi everyone!

Here is this week’s update & photo dump! Enjoy the photos!

Last night, we’ve finally released our first travel guide e-book project under the Our Kawaii Tokyo brand! It’s a creative guide / compilation of our favorite hangout places in Harajuku, Shibuya & Shinjuku. If you love the things that I visit or hoard (coughs stationery coughs), you will also enjoy exploring around Tokyo with this guide.

Ashley, Allie and I really worked hard on this one (2 years in the making or so, lol #nevergiveup). Allie did the entire layout & everything’s wonderfully done!

We had to change many pages along the way because some shops closed down & we wanted to give the reader a more user-friendly experience (putting ourselves in her/his shoes) so. We hope that you will also enjoy browsing our mini guide. We wish to create more themed travel guides in the future. ^^

The price right now for June 2017 is 1200 JPY. You can purchase it from Rainbowholic Shop. ^^

Illustrations / patterns by Allie. Photos by everybody 🙂
