The ABCs of Journaling Book Launch + Philippine Souvenir Jacket 🇵🇭

Hi all! Long time no blog, haha!

Last weekend, I went to Manila to give my full support to my friend Abbey!

I only told a few people about this since it would be really just a super short visit. Man, I arrived at 2AM last Saturday and left the next day.. because #work. *_*

Anyway, The ABCs of Journaling book launch was such a fun & intimate event with her family, friends, readers and supporters. It was my first time to witness this “other side” of Abbey because whenever she’d have a big event / workshop.. I’d miss it because #LDR. ;_; This time, I made sure that Kaila The Stage Friend would be there!

Summary of what happened, haha!

Seeing her on stage and listening to her speech.. omg I also teared up. ;_; I told myself.. “Gurrrl, compose thyself!!” But of course, I could not contain it :))

I literally witnessed with my own eyes how she would pour her all to create things and art (she visited me here in Saitama last 2015 & this Spring 2016). You could tell how hands-on she was with all the fun & in-demand booths during the event + how well-prepared everything was!

It’s so funny how most of our realized dreams started as half-hearted statements / jokes. She joked about me being the “sticker artist”. Weeks later, I started to sell stickers / stationery online and I got addicted to stickers more lol.

From sticker artist, to sticker sponsor.. in her own event. Hahhahaha omg

Many thanks to my friends for coming to support her too!

Mica was our Kawaii PH press person that day (thank you, Mica!). I really missed Anne & Chichi as well, huhu!

It feels weird because 2 years ago, Abbey was the one who was supporting me / Kawaii PH during the Kawaii in Manila 2 event. Years later, we’re all there for her. <3

Kawaii in Manila is NEAR!

Konbanwa from Manila~! <3

Here’s a quick blog update regarding our Kawaii Lifestyle Workshop this Saturday!!! I think that we might have a crying fest after all of these are over!! ;_;

My girls and I have been juggling organizing this workshop with our own work + activities for so long already! There was a time I even questioned myself, “Why the heck am I all doing these..?”.. when I know I should be just working my ass off with JapanLover.me duties & not stressing myself out with other responsibilities like this…

but I just couldn’t help it.

The idea is too fun. I should realize it with my friends / teammates. Kawaii should be shared more.

.. that the (real) Kawaii Girl concept should be reintroduced (idea: being kawaii isn’t only about looking hella cute, but also having an equally cute ..or even much cuter personality & attitude). That surrounding your life with cuteness is like living a healthy lifestyle. 🙂

I can’t wait for the day when I can finally blog everything that has happened.. from the little hiccups, fun meetings, sacrifices, etc. etc.

I will make sure that this workshop will be a success story.

It should be. It has to. 🙂

*cue emo background music here* :))

 Almost three months worth of preparation. Savings almost… gone..TT_TT

For the sake of sharing kawaii kind of happiness to the ladies, we will surely do our best in this event!

I won’t be always here in the Philippines (in fact, this could be my longest stay here),

might as well make something awesome and memorable with other people.

..and I’m hoping that YOU will be part of it.  :heart:

:happy:
