Kaila in Yukata Preview + Bon Festival in Urawa + Daikanyama with Sig

Hello everyone~

Before I go to bed after a long day, here’s a “very Japanese” blog entry again, haha.

As always, I’ve been juggling a lot of activities and projects recently. Hopefully.. everything would work out fine in the end. 🙂 Just going to remind myself over and over that I have to enjoy the breaks, struggles, and the entire craziness of it all. *gives self a pep talk*

ALSOOOOO… I have a big announcement these coming days too. Praying that it wouldn’t be jinxed! Fight.jpg >_<

Witnessing A Full Rainbow + Totoro Soap from Twootie + Japan Candy Box Preview!

Hello folks!

Here’s just a super quick update about my life recently. SO much craziness!

It’s been quite a roller coaster, and I’m just pushing myself to look at the brighter things.

Will share after I resolve these peacefully on my own. For now, yay photos and mini plug + updates! : )

I have never witnessed a “full” rainbow in my life so imagine my SHOCK when I came home and saw this. Look, it even seems like a double rainbow in the photo! *_*

Very thankful for this day because I was able to bond with our intern / little sis Sig at JapanLover.me in Daikanyama. 🙂

Life Updates + Hiking in Kamakura and The Search for the Great Buddha

Konnichiwa from Japan! <3

It’s a brand new day & I’m really happy to blog again!

Everything is happening so fast and my blog can’t keep up…. >_<

But still.. forever fight.jpg!!

:star:

One of my favorite pastime activities is doodling my ideas & goals.. they say that when you write down your dreams, there are higher chances of you attaining them. And I think it is quite true. 🙂

I hope that Kawaii Philippines will expand more and more.. I think I need another blog entry about my feels for kawaii. ; u ;

Ramen and Cupcake Time with My Creative Team

Yesterday, one of my dreams in life (to be a Creative Director in a somewhat-agency) came true.

I finally had a not-so-formal formal meeting with my lovely teammates (who are also my Kawaii Lovin’ friends)! We’re just a small team of Kawaii (Japan)Lovers but I believe that each of us is great in our own forte. Yayyy.. small but terrible team! :)) Terrible in another sense, of course, haha!

To commemorate the day, I decided to treat them with yummy ramen from RYU Ramen & Curry (a new restaurant near our area)! Hopefully someday (*next year* *crosses fingers*), I can also bring them to Japan so we can all enjoy eating ramen together there (with MishieWishie flying for us all the way from NY too, haha!). Our angel investor (my brother) has been very supportive of our projects ever since I started JapanLover.me with just ChiChi and Mishie (which gave birth to many ideas).

Even if our budget is super constricted, I am proud to say that we have been maximizing everything that has been given to us! ;__;

:happy:

 

My dreams are getting bigger and coincidentally, I’m meeting people who share the same visions that I do. Amazeballs! ;_;

  

Achievement unlocked! <3

After our 2-hr. stay in the Ramen place, we finally finished the first half of our meeting! :))
