Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum in Koganei, Tokyo + #HobonichiWithMe Series

Hi everyone!

These days, I’ve been uploading #HobonichiWithMe videos! I’ve been wanting to do something similar to this (Kawaii DIY related) when I was in Manila but I forgot my tripod! *_* Finally, I had time to setup everything! (Time = 2 hours before work lol)

I used to do my hobonochi “exercise” during nighttime but I’m enjoying it more as it has become part of my morning ritual. I was so surprised by the feedback of my first video (uploaded on facebook) that it inspired me more to continue documenting my session & sharing it with others afterwards. I’ll have more crafty / kawaii diy-related videos later on but for now, here’s a good start! 😉

Enough of my hobonichi, and let’s start with the Edo Tokyo Museum photos!

Hi everyone!

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
