Here’s an extremely long overdue post from last Spring~ 🌸
The start of my hobonichi craze!
Hello cherry blossoms, I miss you!
Let’s start with the narration, shall we? 🙂
Went to Tokyo (Harajuku & Shibuya) with Abbey~
Snapped some kawaii photos while window shopping ~
(If you don’t want to spend on it, just take a photo of it haha. Words of wisdom from me)
Just taking a break from today’s work duties. Taking a break = blogger mode on, haha!
If you’ve been following my snaps (rainbowholic.me), you would know how I’ve become so (overly) attached to my hobonichi.
I think that this hobonichi activity has become my regular stress-reliever. Everyday, I respond to many emails and messages (mostly to answer clients’ inquiries / to disseminate tasks within my team) and I would easily get overwhelmed by everything happening all at the same time. I’ve realized that allowing myself to have a downtime (and just be myself, doodling my dreams on papers and designing the pages with washi tapes lol) is actually a good creative exercise. : ) You guys should also try it! Add more color to your day ~
It’s amazing how a simple work day like today (and mind you, it was stressful haha) became much more interesting with this simple form of leisure!
I bought some Gudetama stickers / washi tapes when I went to Sanrio Puroland before.. and I’m so happy that I finally get to use these for a personal project! 😀
God of Kawaii Zen lol

Yesterday night after work, my cousin Gil, Justin, and I went to a nearby Starbucks to try their famous seasonal Sakura drinks!
