The Best Christmas Gift

Good morning~! Ohayou from Japan! 🙂

First of all, a Merry, Merry Christmas to you!  :3:

Still having a little bit of Christmas Eve hangover from yesterday~ I had so much fun with my family here in Japan!


As you can tell (after my influx of posts), I am inspired and motivated to “blog” again.. the way I have always wanted to do it.

For some reason, taking photos with my buddy DSLR is one of my ways to relax myself~

I am seriously taking advantage of this holiday season to unwind.. in preparation for 2015! 😀


For practice, I took some shots of my current creative space here at our apartment! : )


Cardcaptor Sakura forever 😀


Peko and Poko ~





Haaaaiiiii~ : )

Spending Christmas and New Year in Manila

Konbanwa~  :happy:

I’m so happy that (finally) I get to blog about my Philippine vacation during the holidays~! Even though my airplane rides were quite inconvenient, my vacation was well-spent with my family and friends.

I don’t regret buying (a somewhat) overpriced ticket for all the memories I’ve made during my last days of 2012. :”) Thank you to my mom who sponsored it with me ;_;

If you are a reader from 3 months or before, you’d know that the last few months had been quite a tough time for me. Coming home was such a prize …!!!  Home-cooked meals, lazy days in my pajamas, going to mass with the family, reconnecting with friends.. life couldn’t get better during that time. 🙂 It was something I really looked forward ever since life happened.


This is going to be really photo heavy. Heavier than the usual because this doesn’t only contain the usual kawaii spam, but a bit of more of my personal life I wish to share. Hehe 😛


Home Sweet Home


I had a stopover at Hongkong and because of the baggage limit (this is why I don’t recommend Cathay Pacific anymore.. they are SO strict with the baggage! Had to shell out a lot of money for my boxes huhu)..

Also, I carried those two big boxes you see.. because I had to save up for the weight. It really felt like I was an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) coming home with “Balikbayan” boxes. Maybe I am actually one right now, haha~ still in denial though.. I feel like a tourist in Japan, not a worker.  :what:

At least they served me delicious food! I booked my flight via expedia and had to select my food choices~ yay for Low Fat food!

Ever since my (life-changing) airplane ride from Amsterdam last year because of a mild gallbladder attack, I always have to think of what I eat….

Veggies, fruits, wheat bread.. this is healthy heaven for me hehe.

While on HK international airport, my Rilakkuma radar was on and saw these *_*

After a long flight and experience Christmas jungle in NAIA terminal, finally had dinner with my parents! <3

BANGUS i missed you huhuhuhu

Our home with our big Talisay tree. <3

Rainbows welcomed rainbowholic me! 😀

Because I have been a good girl…


I just came back from my 1-week Christmas trip /  reunion with my boyfriend (after 6 long months) in Hongkong! I had lots of surprises from last week and the following below are the highlights!  :heart:

I promise to post more about our holiday vacation (planned this way back. and omg it did come true  😥 It was hard trying to keep this as a secret!) on my next posts. I don’t even know where to start @_____@

My first santa was Carlo.  :heart: We have been together for almost a year.. and the sad part is, the time we’re away from each other is >>> from the time we became official. HUHUHU

I don’t know how he saved up for my mini diana (from my wishlist since forever!!).. but he did. It started with a tag on facebook.. and the tag became a real gift. Y U SWEET

He was telling me to open the cabinet for my gift, and there IT WAS. HUHUHUHUHUHU  :yay:

(the chocolates were commanded to be bought so.. = ))) the ferrero rocher doesn’t really count as a surprise hehe )

I went home alone all the way from Narita… and while I was a way, Santa came by and fixed my room!

Even my duffy bears are welcoming me huhuhuhuhu

Thank you so much Ate Claire  :heart: Ate Claire is my brother’s (sweet) girlfriend 8D



And then… while I was fixing some stuff in my room, I found this unopened package..

I went @_____@ when I saw the contents! Caro from Sweet Streets LA sent me two gigantic / adorkable Hello Kitty bows from Chubby Bunny!!!!

Sweetest girl ever!!!!

Coincidentally, I also bought pairS of hello kitty glasses during my trip. And a new iPhone case to match. More on my HK shopping haul later!

:starru:   :star:

Just when I left for Hongkong, my brother sent me a photo of a package from Philippines…

It’s from Anne Kate! One of the lucky winners of my Dream Website giveaway from before….

Art <3

Also received cute usamimi headbands from her little shop, RamenBoy Shop. Super cute!! Thank you so much for sending this all the way from there!


I shall update again later~ Thank you so much everyone ;___;

Awesome Winter Vacation Ahead!

Before I start with the real post, here’s our “graduation photo” that we took with my camera last week. Who’s holding the remote? Haha~

After JLPT and 9AM classes every weekday… we all deserve a happy winter vacation for all of us! Otsukaresamadeshita, mina-san~!

My winter vacation started off with an onsen / hotspring treat! I was with my brother and his girlfriend. I love hotsprings!

And at night or just during my idle time, I watch Detective Conan. It has over 600+ episodes so I just watch random cases.

Trivia: I love Detective-themed animes! Like Detective School Q, even Death Note.. I’m not really an otaku but I like “guessing” while watching shows : )


2 days ago, I’ve finally revisited Nippori (Tokyo’s Fabric Town) after so long!

Book vending machine at the right~ wow  :blank:
